I'll PM you if the operation goes according to plan. U$30 should cover 2x Hirose plus shipping to The Continent That Wants To Kill You.

 

I think my rig will stay like this for a long time. Well, at least a few days until the mini-xlr parts arrive and I tear it all apart again.

You got that right!

Sounds good Soren. All the best with the mod

It's applicable to whatever you want. I use mine with my (C)IEM cable:



Oh Dear, thanks Sorensiim. Looks like I have to look for new cables terminated with Hirose male connector.

It's the best single ended amp I've ever heard with IEMs, but the balanced output of the PB2 is better. I love the Quickstep, but on the other hand it just might fund a set of HD650's...

Why not go for the top? Get HD800 for f***s sake, wasn't your motto, get the highest end, pay once (well ok something like that, I couldn't remember the exact words:D). µ

That's something not to buy for me and pretty much almost everybody in here. If I remember correctly I was reading prices like 15k euros. I agree the best is the best but, let's stay realistic shall we :happy_face1:

Would be funny to see someone using this phone for portable use. I imagine needing a backpack to carry the amp and power supply.

He would look like a military field communications officer during world war 2.

But then if anyone already made a portable amp (not bigger than M8) for electrostatic phone then I'm interested. smily_headphones1.gif

I actually prefer the HD650 over the HD800. There, I said it, bring the flames.

 

I need want a set of open cans for listening comfortably at home while being able to hear my kids if they wake up (thus excluding my ciems). For that job, the HD650 is perfection. I've had two sets before actually, but everyone and their mother always says that the HD650 really comes alive once you go balanced. That, and the fact that there's no way in hell I'm paying that kind of money for cans that'll see an hour of use per week. I'm ok with paying top dollar for my ciems as I use them for 40 hours a week :smile:

 

Next decision: To Topkit or not to Topkit, that is the question.

May I suggest a vented iem with low isolation? 1plus2. It might even steal hours from your main ciems.

With the K10, the 8.A, the 4.Ai and the Tzar 350 (Yeah, I'm a Wizard fan) I think I've got IEMs covered for now :D

 

I've always liked the HD650 and I've had them twice before, that's why I'm probably getting them again.

Have you considered the Auduze LCD-2? I've remember reading it has a lot of similarities to the 8.A. Open design like the HD650 and IMO great looking.
