Yes, it'll be tuned using the mod.  Filter discs are added if I feel it achieves the optimal balance.

Will you have stock of this upgrade package for immediate shipping once it is posted on your site or will it be backorder?  Also, will you still be shipping through USPS for Canadian orders?  I actually prefer USPS/Canada Post since they don't charge the brokerage fees that couriers charge. 

 

Thanks.

Dave.

I sold my HE-6 and LCD-2 just from reading the reviews of the MD.  Being a closed headphone was a part of that decision but it is my best buy in headphones.  The MD was my favorite all around for a long time till the AD was out.  I am still in awe of what Dan did with the little Fostex drivers.

 

I played this video today and thought the AD sounded pretty sweet.  Then I turned on my speakers and found out how sad they really are.  The speakers couldn't product a third of the song.

 

 

Bad ass job Dan!

Why is the sound cleaner and deeper on youtube then on head-fi?

post #5930 of 7868
It may not be going to the higher quality stream on youtube. I know even when I set it to go to the highest I still have to manually set every video to go to highest quality, and AFTER I do that, I have to rewind the video a hair so the higher quality stream kicks in.
post #5931 of 7868
Both sites are playing at the max of that video, 480.

I'm wrong. Head-fi is playing much lower.

Like I said, even if it says 480p, the stream may still be playing under it. What I do is start the vid, change the quality, then rewind the video a little. It will then kick in the quality you set it to. Some vids default at 360p, and stay that way until you do what I mentioned. Youtube is stupid that way.

1080/720p = 192kbps mp3
480p = 128kbps
360= 96kbps iirc
240= I forget

I went through all the samples and it sounds like the video on Head-fi is playing the equivalent of the 144p stream on youtube.

I always thought that headphones do not produce actual bass!!!

False. Try the LCD2s or LCD3s and you can feel the bass from within the cans. 

post #5936 of 7868

I personally never played the LCD2 loud enough to feel the bass.

post #5937 of 7868
LCD2 has amazing bass.

Also... D7000. Those Fostex Denons... the bass on those is one of a kind.
post #5938 of 7868
As far as bass power/rumble goes.

Denon/Fostex top models bass can be felt and can give you a tickle at the right hz.
The JVC DX1000 has bass of a similar level of power.
Ultrasone Signature DJ as well.

Audezes are behind these 3 lots in overall power, but go deep as heck. Alphas are further diminished but not bad by any stretch.

i've been switching back and forth b/n the ADs and the d7000...the d7000's bass is much deeper and heavier than the ADs. but because the ADs fit so much better on my head and seal so much better, its bass sometimes feels better than the d7000's. i'm not sure i'll keep the ADs, but give me another week and we'll see...they're really good, but so far the sound isn't as enjoyable as my d7000. we'll see...

I think its AAC http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Youtube#Quality_and_codecs, so it should be a little better than mp3's of the same rate if I'm not mistaken.
