Friend of mine who's just bought a SR-5 Gold + SRD-6/SB, apparently mint, with boxes like new, etc...
He came to my house (I've a classic SR-5, first owner, legacy from my father who bought it in 1979), in order to compare.
First strange thing : very very light pair compared to mine
Second strange thing : no more sound in my SR-5 when both are plugged in (SRD-7/SB)
Third strange thing : sound really weak, shouty, without body and/or bass
Fourth strange thing : what I can see in the cups through the mesh does'nt look like a stat driver. There's also a little bump on the back of the cups
I tell him I want to open it, have a bad feeling about this.
Holy **** ! Some crappy "no-name" dynamic drivers in the cups The bump on the back as a consequence of a kind of screw on the back of those ****ty drivers...Bias wire not plugged in, obviously.
Did you ever encounter such things ? The headphones are aesthetically perfect, it's quite unbelievable...
