Me upon reading that: so noise canceling headphones without any background noise is the new "in" thing now, huh?


I watch sports all the time with the mute on and tunes cranking.  Hate to listen to the idiot announcers and color men ramble on about crap.......................

Like them a lot.  Gotta head upstairs to the Spec system and put them through their paces (ie thump the bass a bit). 

 

Mids on these are sweet................as are the highs.  Comfort unreal.................yeah, they're keepers.

Man that's a tight fit. Haha. I have the exact same case. I always assumed it would fit, but I guess I was very close from being wrong.

The Hippocases are better solution and they're large eunuch for the AD.

Sort of reminds me of that time-honored expression, "If it don't fit, don't force it"

Ok, once I get my 6 inch 3.5mm cable wednesday, I am all setup for the AD's :). I do leatherwork as a hobby, so made this today.

Search for AKG K701 case on eBay. It might be the right case. I've bought a few of them -- one for former K701s, another for AKG K240 Sextett, and another for my Smeggy Thunderpants.

 

Here's an example...

Dan,  Are you still expecting to have 6 week turnaround in production?  I should expect mine about or after Valentine's Day?

 

I'm curious about the tuning process--the Very Bass screw in particular.  I'm assuming that this is something that's benchmarked, but it seems like it wouldn't be automated.  Do you have to tune each and every cup by hand/ear?  Sounds like a daunting process!

 

If you don't mind telling the story, how did you come up with the design?  I'd guess a great deal of trial and error went into the process, but you had to have some specific goals in mind.  Can you give some insight into how you went about designing the cup to meet your goals?  

 

It must be rewarding to see how warmly your efforts are being received.  I'm certainly excited about getting mine!

I am not Dan, but I will tell you what I know just my following this thread.

 

The process is not automated. Every pair of headphones are hand tuned by Dan himself. He is currently looking for a more efficient solution that will not degrade quality.

 

While the end user can adjust the base screw, it's really there for Dan to tune the headphone to spec. 

 

No clue how far behind he is, but he is on Nov 16 now. If his production efficiency has not been improved, this should give you a good rough estimate.
