This makes all your comparisons invalid.

Yeah probably. I guess we need to plan for another Lays meet. XD

If only it was simple enough to put those leather pads on the 207 to see if they would sound much better with those on also.

Very nice comparison there, I might see myself ordering a dozen or so of those leather pads at $50 sometime in the future if I go back to headphones.

Thanks smily_headphones1.gif
I wish we could've rolled pads, but alas I didn't feel like trying to come across more of that soluble sided tape.
Also, regarding the 507 pads, I ordered them through amazon Japan, but you do have to use some sort of middleman service to get them outta Japan.
I basically concur with Mice's opinions. The 207 sounded a bit more harsh and the bass was less punchy.

Oh, and the build quality on Mice's 207 is better than my 202, but also heavier. Mine creaks a bit, but the 207 didn't at all. Also, my headband was a lot more loose, probably due to aging though.

Does anyone has ever compared SR-202/SR-207 with the original Lambda Pro ?

Which goes to say meet impressions don't mean schiit.

 

Yeah therein lies the problem with the HD800, well powered is going to translate to time, effort and lots of $$$ to get it sounding on par with some of the good electrostats heck when I compared my Omega I's off a T1S to my HD800 off a class A hybrid tube design I was playing around with, they are very similar sounding, the HD800's is a finicky bitch and the sound level performance wasn't far off. 

 

With less expensive Lambda frame earspeakers I'd say you get 80% of the HD800's sound which is powered off a mediocre mid range amp so really not that bad at all. 

 

The first few times I heard the HD800 it was all off some opamp garbage and they sounded terrible.  Give them a good amp and they truly shine... 

 

Prior to the HD800 there wasn't a whole lot of choice out there.  Never liked the R10 all that much (too bloody colored), the HP1000 is a one trick pony and the comfort is horrible, HD600 is astounding for the price but a bit dull and that was it really.  A SR-Lambda or LNS more than holds its own against all of those.

post #493 of 1308

Hmm.. wonder if it's worth abandoning my HE60 restoration efforts (especially given recent circumstances) and join the HD 800 fold. It seems like the dynamic with the fewest egregious technical issues or liberties in the sound signature.

 

I'll have to figure it out once my SR-307 comes in, I guess.

post #494 of 1308

Which is generally perceived as being better, the SR-Lambda or the Lambda Nova Signature/Classic (assuming that the difference between Classics and Signatures are the same as they have been since SR-303/SR-404)?

post #495 of 1308

Can anyone comment on the sound of SR-404 and how it compare to the like of Lambda Pro and the like?
