post #691 of 3315

I really feel sorry for the way that O1 is hanging. 

post #692 of 3315
It got moved around for the pic, it's not normally hung there, but thanks for feeling sorry.

That's ok, I would hate seeing someone breaking the fragile hinges that go from the headband assembly to the cups on the O1's.

For sure. They are my babies and get the best treatment of the bunch. I just put hem up for the quick shot because I was listening to them at the time and wanted to show the OP what a few headphones looked like on that stand for reference.

As a new owner of a pair, could you share any advice on how you handle them differently from your others?

I suppose you dont have any labels on your cardboard box (I dont mean the 'carbon fiber' case)?

 

Methinks they may have replaced the headband arc on your pair.

Thank you Jinh, the purchase came with the carbon fiber case but not the outer box.  I contacted the store and they assured me the item is legitimate, but that the serial number sticker must have peeled off.  I've been A/B comparing my two sets of 007 and actually the stickerless one sounds a bit brighter and lively, but the two are very close.  I'm OK with this set, since I'm not planning to shed either anytime soon, but would have preferred to know the serial number.  The 007s sound incredible, so I'm fine with the two as they are.  Thanks for responding.

Wait are you buying another MK1?

post #699 of 3315

Yeah, I'm addicted to this sound.  Have been going back and forth between the two 007s all night.

I think this is probably one of the best non Stax stands http://www.thomann.de/gb/rooms_audio_typ_fs_s_headphone_stand.htm

So they will be here much sooner, figure I need to get a stand lined up. I don't like the stands that have the pads against the body of the stand, I want one more where it just suspends the headphones by the headband. I was looking at this one http://www.amazon.com/Just-Mobile-Direct-HS-100BK-HeadStand/dp/B00BR3OPKU/ref=pd_cp_pc_1

The simplest solution is that somebody replace the arcs and didn't bother to move the serial number sticker as well. 

 

Nothing wrong with having two Mk1's... or four...  :o

Thank you Spritzer, and also for enabling my addiction to these.  For the moment, I've simply decided to give in.

Nothing really special, only that they are always handled with extreme care when I use them and I keep them in an open box instead of hanging.  

 

Open box because all of my stats, including the O1 in the open box, are now kept in a case that has slight positive pressure to keep dust out and the humidity controlled... but that's just a little overkill that I set up because I'm living in a fairly humid environment over here in the UK.
