post #61 of 157

40%+ import tax in the UK.  I wish we could control it.

Any other additional discounts for the on1? I'd really like to give these a listen. From all accounts, this is my kind of sound signature.

None so far, just that it dropped $50 in price. Trust me, they're worth a lot more than what they're going for. While I may not have the headphones themselves, I do hear a similar taste of the on1's signature. I'll get it one day for the quality and the sound that it comes with.

Go for it when you can they are awesome.

 

These are my first pair of wood phones and i can't put my finger on it but it does add some realism to the sound. I also like how the ear pads are easily replaced and bought from thinksound directly. It also uses standard 3.5mm headphone cable so you can use any cable you like though the one that it came with is very high quality

Oh I bet, especially when you say that it has some realism to its sound. I want to hear that nice flavor, but will have to wait unfortunately. I need to know how the martin logans sound first. 

 

How much do the pads from thinksound cost? I would like extras so I can replace them for some headphones that I have. :) Awesome, I can use a replacable 3.5mm! I wonder how thinksound's sound on my other headphones...

These seem interesting.  One think on ears usually lack is soundstage.  Deal breaker for me.  I can deal with a little discomfort, can't deal with a small soundstage.

 

That being said, hows the soundstage vs the 1R and KEF M500?

 

Gracias!

If you are talking about the Sony MDR1 than the Sony beats all 3 in soundstage, then again isn't that a given considering on ears and over ears?

 

Having said that, the difference isn't as big as you would think. Its very hard to tell between the Kefs and these. They sound different and its hard to notice which has the bigger soundstage but I prefer the one on the On1s. Both have large soundstages for on-ears

One the things I like about the On1 is the standard 3.5mm (plug) detachable cable...Yesterday I just received an upgraded BTG Audio SPC Midnight cable. :)   http://www.btg-audio.com/

Same here. Easily one of my favorite features and one i hope other manufacturers pick up on.

 

How does your new cable affect sound/if at all?

Yeah, would like to hear some impressions too. Just received my on1s about an hour ago and they're going through some play. Liking the sound so far, right out of the box.

Soundstage seems pretty decent on these guys.

One thing I'm concerned about though is the lack of clamping force. Even with my big head, it slides off if I bend my head forward to look at the floor. Anybody have issues as these loosen over time? Other than that, can't complain so far. Great set of cans for sure. Details are pretty decent and bass is definitely present.

I just wanted to let you know if you bend the headband back it will loosen up a bit.  Dont be afraid to grab them and bend them back as the band has quite a bit of memory and it wont break.  Make sure you are putting the stress on the metal and not the plastic when bending.

I believe what Aaron posted applies to tightening too. The headband does have quite a bit of memory and the reverse of what you do for loosening should work to tighten them up.

Ahh, good point. I'll definitely do that if it starts loosening.

Also, anybody find any decent alternatives for a carrying case? They're ultra portable, but would like to protect them a bit more than the included cloth bag.
