Sorry to revive something on this thread that has probably already been discussed extensively, but what amps have been found to work particularly well with the ADs? I think I should be receiving mine within the next few weeks. Right now I'm using an ifi iCAN which has worked well with my 300ohm Sennheiser 580s, but I understand planars are different kind of hard to drive. The ifi reportedly works well with the Audeze LCD-2s which are similar efficiency and a little higher impedance than the ADs. Has anyone tried the ADs with an iCAN? Can anyone comment on how the ADs compare to the LCD-2's as a load on an amp?

DigitalFreak had the AD's and the iCAN. I think he said it pairs just fine.

You ARE bringing these to the Feb. meet... right? Right??

Hey, just wanted to share my mod for AD biggrin.gif





Yep, I shortened the leather part of headband around 1-1.5cm on each side. I did that for both comfort and SQ reasons. In original setting upper part of earcup is pressing against my head more than the lower part. This is because length adjustment does not preserve width. This also means that seal on the bottom was worse than seal on the top. With this simple mod forces seem almost equal, so seal is better and comfort is better. The only drawback is that headband is sticking out above the head, but who cares biggrin.gif


Also I have a good news (I think). While I was doing this mod one cup has fallen to wooden floor, and there is no signs of it ever happening. The paint seems to be bulletproof, but remember YMMV.

Also, if you haven't noticed on the photo above, now they fit on the stand with cable.

OK you got me !  I ordered an AD to complement my TH-900 when I need isolation.  The TH-900 leak too much when I am in a quit & busy environment.   I hope the AD will pair with my TU-05 tube amp  as well as the TH-900 does. :-)
