post #1381 of 11938

What?!?.  No posts for 6 days?

 

I'll post something.

 

Quick survey-

 

1. How many days a week do you listen to headphones?

 

2. How many minutes or hours in a typical session?

 

3. What percent of listening is with electrostatic headphones?

 

 

 

My answers:   1. 2    2. 2 hrs   3. 100% for about the last year.  Tried going back to some ortho's and dynamics but that didn't last long, immediately went back to my electrostatics.

1) 5 days a week, about 15 hours per week or 75% of my music listening through electrostatics (rest is in-car or through speakers).

7, 8-10 hours (if you count passive listening as a 'listening session'), 100% electrostatic!

The questions are only related to headphones time, but out of my overall listening time speakers are 40%, headphones 60%.

Well, I don't listen to my T1/Sigma setup at all for the moment, right now I'm using my HE-5le and HE-500 through the emo.

5 days a week

A couple albums per session, if you count netflix a lot more head time haha

100% electrostats
post #1392 of 11938

1:     5 days a week
2:     3-4 hours

3:     100% electrostat others are in boxes and stay there for at least the next 3 months :o2smile:

 

By the way, i picked my new KGSS, a used one i bought from someone in this forum.

So this is almost Headphone-heaven for me.

As far i can tell right now, it is very nice but there is a hum after the amp is turned on.

 

Not in the signal, but one could hear it sitting next to the amp.

So it could be the transformer??  It is a european voltage model build by Spritzer, maybe a year old????

 

I´m not into electronics and DYS amps.... but my HIFI-dealer,

which is also a friend of mine (and for all that stuff i bought in his shop, i´m his friend as well)

will help me for sure.

 

Maybe one of the specialists in this forum could be so kind to give me a hint to solve this problem in front of asking my hifi-dealer.

 

Thank´s in advance:bigsmile_face:

3. 100%. Damn SR-009! Can't resist them!

post #1394 of 11938

In my turn, my answers

1 : 4-5

2 : 2 hours

3: 80 % Stax (009) (for the Hi-Fi) ; 20 % HD-600 (for Home Cinema) (NB: I prefer the HD 600 for Home Cinema because I wear glasses and a Stax headphone listening is less comfortable with glasses on the nose ; moreover the perfect sealing of the pads of the 009 becomes problematic with glasses).

1. How many days a week do you listen to headphones? 7

2. How many minutes or hours in a typical session? 5 days a week I commute listening to IEM's, 1 hour each way, so 2 hours per day. I then listen almost every day at work unless I'm in meetings, so let's say 6 hours average per day all electrostatic. I get a few hours in every night on the home rig and some more extended listening on the weekends... all electrostatic. Sorry, long answer! smily_headphones1.gif

3. What percent of listening is with electrostatic headphones? I'm surprised, my commute time adds up, but I still listen to over 80% stats.
