I apologize for the confusion made by posting the pictures of the headphone and headphone stands at Munkong.
There is zero intention for promoting Munkong. Most of the hiend headphones belong to one person's collection and not of Munkong's. Warin is also another participant but he is very active and enthusiastic to write what he thinks is useful. He had to go through 10 hiend headphones (most of them can not be purchased there : Orpheus, R10, TakeT H2, new Jecklin Float QA, SR 009 , Fostex TH900 etc how can these headphones be commercial when the owner will not sell these parts of collections to anyone??), made notes with his ipad and shared his opinion in that thread. I thought there are useful informations for the head-fi community so I asked their permissions to show some of the pictures and their comments. Again the pictures of headphone and headphones stands was the mistake made by me. More review will come in that thread comparing the new Jecklin Float, TakeT H2+ and JPS Abyss using the speaker post setup which was not reviewed previously.

In Thailand we have small meetings like this from time to time and in some DIY club they showed their DIY earphones like those of New Jecklin Float , Orpheus and Stax with great result and those also are not for commercial but for their strong interest in headphone audiophile.

Cull it out before it infects the others.......

 

Totally agree! I hope other headphones are immune to Dr Dre disease haha.

They might just put the Beats on top of the shelf because they are rarely auditioned by someone so they don't have to climb up often lol.

Come on, don't start the flame lol. I'm against them posting what they are selling too. It's kinda like promoting Munkong but that's just one picture, no? And as kiertijai mentioned, they are loaned by a single person so I think it is not their intention to do marketing (not that they could get more customers posting here though). It's kinda like hijacking the thread if they just start posting the review one by one but they still limited to comparison b/w Abyss/takeT/Float. That should be fine. Maybe it's more appropriate to start the new thread but this is like a continuing episode from the earlier.

 

Just contact the mod if you think it's inappropriate and maybe, only leave the pics audition scene in the thread and also blur all Munkong poster lol

 

Nice pictures though. I'm impressed that they can gather so many good cans at one place. Would love to hear more about Abyss! Please continue with appreciations and impressions, you rich folks :popcorn:

My apologies, kiertijai, for giving you the wrong impression. In context of your post, I have no problems with you mentioning Munkong.

 

I was extremely impressed with the collection.

 

I can see that I will have to make more judicious use of the emoticons and sarcasm meter as each post requires.:wink_face:

Linking to a set of impressions from another site shouldn't be construed as spam automatically, especially if they are relevant to the discussion. The site Kiertijai linked to was discussing the meet in which the impressions were taken. Had Kiertijai just posted impressions without any link as reference, I'm sure other people would have chimed in saying "where do these impressions come from?"

 

Spam is posting stuff that isn't helpful or generally construed as 'garbage,' and this entails linking to another site for the purpose of promoting that site or yourself. I do not see kiertijai's post as that at all. Kiertijai is one of the most dedicated people I've met in this hobby, and one of the most free of pretenses. His post actually contributed a lot by linking to impressions with a lot of helpful information. The real irony is, the posts that were trying to call him out on spamming were actually more like spam in that they basically increased the noise to signal ratio in this thread.

 

Excellent impressions, by the way. I think they're spot on based on my experience of owning the three headphones. For my tastes it's more or less

 

Abyss > Floats > TakeT

 

Though the Floats are also favorites of mine right now, with their own distinct type of presentation and sound. The Abyss just hits hard in comparison. The bass on the TakeT is actually more plentiful to me (they sound bassier), but control and tightness of the Abyss are much more precise.

If you're concerned about a few adverts showing up in a post, perhaps this place is not for you...  Have you seen all the adds that are on these head-fi pages now!!!??  Complete with roll over sound.

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks for sharing the fresh impressions kiertijai.

Thanks for the post Kiertijai, I think that helps to put it in perspective.

Thanks for all the feedbacks.
I myself found that the three headphones mentioned have different flavours. It depends on the music I would like
to play, which mood I am in to choose which phones to use so I may connect all three with the speaker post
setup (as seen in the thread) but I will take the TakeT H2+ out when I will play the Abyss. With the speaker
post setup I think the bass slam is very had (I totally agree with Muppetface here)
and if I need a more gentle touch from the Abyss I will connect
it with the Mal Valve Three in fully balanced setup.
Here is another picture from the meeting that everyone tried bringing their gears and moving the components
around to try new things , hope more impressions will come.

^^^ DITTO!

 

Very informative, high drool factor.

They certainly have some gear. If food is brought in, it could be a two day event.
post #657 of 1543
This will be a seven day event.
they can have food and refreshment easily as the Amarin Plaza has the food court
one flight of stair above.
I think more impresson may come this weekend as more several Thai head-fiers will surely
attend the meeting

A week would be great.

As of now, I am listening to Jazz At The Pawnshop 24/88.2 thru Audirvana + Invicta Mirus + ECBA + Abyss.

 

This is amazing.
