If you're looking into open headphones, you really should look into the AKG K702 (or higher models). I own the anniversary edition and they are the reason I'm barely on head-fi anymore. I'm absolutely content with them. I've also owned the HD650, but I find these better. Without a doubt. Then again, I used them on the fiio e9 (the HD650 that is).

 

The imaging and seperation is the best i've ever heard in any headphone in the annies. Apart from that, they sound much like the HD650 only with tight bass an hyper realistic treble. But this is not an intimate headphone, since the soundstage is fairly huge-ish.

I've head the K701 on several occasions and they're on the list as well, if I can find a way to fit them with a headband instead of the torture instrument installed by the Austrians.

Hi soren is this the correct dual lock for attaching my portable amp? Does it leaves any residue that will damage the amp?

It's the heavy duty version - It'll work, but the "Low Profile" edition might be better suited for this job :smile:

post #713 of 915
Haha thanks. But there's no low profile version at my local store....
post #714 of 915
I got my dual lock from ebay
post #715 of 915
The low profile version I mean
post #716 of 915

I have both. It depends on whether you want to put things between your amp and DAP. If not, low profile is the way to go. Neither will hurt your toys.

Bad news, everyone! 

 

My plan about replacing the Hirose headphone connector on the PB2 with a 4-pin mini-xlr is hereby cancelled. The mini-xlr parts came in the mail today and the mini-xlr panel mount connector is almost twice the size of its Hirose counterpart. Yes, I could make it fit and I could make it work, but there's no way in hell I could make it look good enough for my OCD to tolerate it. So for now it's Hirose for me. Unless I find a crazy small mini-xlr panel mount connector or a good TRRS solution maybe...

Sorry to hear that Soren, you should have gone for the Intruder and the kobiconn connector. wink.gif

I am also big fan of kobiconn connector, pretty much best for the portable life. I prefer them over TRRS connectors for example. For desktop purposes, 4pin xlr is way to go I guess.

Me too, never liked the xlr connectors, I find them huge and seem to take over the rig when plugged.
