I never mind a bit of OT about tinnitus. It's a serious and life changing effect of hp's if you don't take precautions. I had my own personal scare and have recovered to about 90%. Needs to be mentioned more often around here. Take care of your hearing people.

On good equipment you do not have to blast it too sound great I am 66 and play at healthy level, but never blast it

This thread has got me looking at spl meters on Amazon.  I want to know how loud I am listening.  And to be on topic, yay Vali!  

 

Schiit, there is a small meet in Chicago on Nov 2nd.  I'd be happy to pay right this moment to have one available for the meet.

Yeah, i guess you have to be careful. When i freelanced in nyc Id have my senns pegged at louD since there was so much noise around me. And its dangerous to walk around with noise cancelling headphones, you have to hear a little of whats going on around you. Ill try lower levels for now on.

V Moda Faders or similar plugs (Etymotic makes them as well) do a great job at preserving your hearing. They simply reduce all incoming sound by about 12 dB, so it doesn't sound muffled but still protects your ears.

Getting a solid SPL meter is a good idea for room measurements and everything but if you want a ball-park estimate and have an iOS device, check out UE SPL - it's free and should get you within a few dB for sure.

So... did anyone ever mention a release date for the Vali?!?

post #415 of 4232

Schiit should have a package deal (not discounted) of the Vali + Modi. Anything to get more people to try my favorite Modi :biggrin:

Maybe throw in a free cable... or not. I know that Schiit doesn't like sales and they're already cheap enough.

Or even a tiny discount on shipping. I wish more people had $25-30 next day delivery. Of course Fedex/UPS rarely gives discounted rates to smaller companies I guess.

 

As much as I liked the Magni, the Modi deserves even better!

I'm feeling rebellious and thinking of trying the Vali with the TH600 :veryevil:

 

 

(I understand the impedance, noise floor issues)

Thanks.

I guess I'll probably try it, put it up against the Magni while using the Alpha's...

I just emailed and asked the guys at schiit and received a reply of - "Complete info will be available on the site when we start shipping in a couple of weeks."  So, nothing from them until they ship - but the good news is it is going to be in the next couple of weeks!
