Also, I'd very much appreciate it if someone could bring the Senn HD800's.

Could you bring the 650's? I have been looking into them, and would really appreciate a try before I buy them:)

Speaking of cables, I may have an aftermarket cable for the HD800 with the 2x3-pin XLR's, but I don't have a balanced amp to use it with, so I'm thinking if some one wants to try it you could either

 

1. Hope someone else has a balanced amp

I just bought a pair of HD800's used off the forum, but without any cables. 

 

I have both balanced and single ended cables on order, but I am not sure if they will get here on time.

 

If you can bring your pair of HD800 cables, I will also be bringing an LAu amp which works best balanced, so they say.

 

Thanks,

Sweet! Finally this comparison is going to happen! I don't think anyone has been able to compare both.

I might have a friend tag along. He has never heard any proper audio gear before. I think it would be a fun experiment if we can keep silent about the prices of all our gear and let him rank what he think sounds best.

Sure thing. Surprised no one else has listed them, I think they're more common than the other headphones I have.

 

 

 

On a side note, does anyone have the Fostex TH-900's?

Great. I'll do my best to have the HD800 cable ready, but I'm not sure if it will be ready in time.

I can finally officially announce that Brannan from Noble Audio will be at the meet! This is probably the first time anyone will have a chance to see and probably hear their new products. 

 

He may even have additional yet unannounced products to show! (Not sure yet.)

 

Also, if you are in the area and even considering ordering a pair of Noble CIEM's, Brannan has generously offered to do free ear impressions for anyone who has ordered or orders Noble CIEM's.

 

This is an amazing offer. Usually the biggest drawback of buying CIEM's is finding an audiologist and hoping that they know how to do ear impressions for CIEM's. Often this can lead to having to redo the impressions and shipping them again which adds significant delays. etc.

 

If you have Brannan do them, you can be sure that the impressions will be done right the first time. 

 

Plus it's free! You save at least $75 or more not having to hire an audiologist.

 

Spread the word!

Thanks for the kind words Darin, I can confirm everything said here.

 

I think having impressions done at the meet is a great idea for the reasons mentioned above and also that we can take as many impressions necessary to make sure they're right.

Here at Noble, we craft some of the finest universal and custom in-ear monitors available today.

I am thinking about not setting up my speakers and the Realiser this year since I already have a lot of stuff to bring and I really don't want to spend all my time in the closet doing Realiser demos. It means bringing speakers, stands, amp, blu-ray player, cables, etc.

 

But if there is anyone who feels strongly that they want to get a Realiser demo, then I might bring everything. Only if there's enough interest though.

 

Opinions?

post #70 of 178

I can understand why you would want to have more freedom rather than giving Realiser demos. I don't feel particularly attached to the Realiser demo, but others may want to chime in.

Just added a new vendor: LFF from ReferenceSounds.com.

post #72 of 178

Would like to be added to the list. Possibly bringing a humble HD558.

My cables for my HD800's showed up today, so I am good to go. (They only took 3 days to get here from Israel!)

 

I have unbalanced and balanced (dual XLR) cables for my HD800's.

 

I will be able to run them balanced off the Cavalli LAu.

 

However, I am curious to see how much a difference the cables make, so if anyone else has HD800 cables to bring, I would love to compare.

I wonder how HD800s sound off my speaker amp :wink_face:

You mean your Krell? How are you connecting your HE-6's? Do you have a DIY box to use the speaker outputs? I always wondered why more people don't use speaker amps for headphones. I have some really nice mono block speaker amps.
