Maybe you can have ostewart buy one for you and ship it over haha.

That would work
I have the feedback for it.
post #95 of 1646

well... I would have to consent to this, and what about import tax on your side? I could declare as low value and ship with tracking.

 

The catch, you have to buy me a pair for helping you out ;)

I got the used pair in that I bought. I'm having some fit issues, not due to the weight as many mentioned, but because of the very light contact with my ears which causes washed out bass and sound leaking in and out. I've bent the headband a bit so the cups are moved closer to head and this helps. The other thing is that the cups keep migrating back down the sliders once on my head, and any semblance of good fit is spoiled. I think I need to stretch a small black O-ring type band on the bars just below each cup to keep them in place. Does anyone else's pair have such loose cups on the slider bars? 

 

Sound is really fantastic though, when fitting best possible. The highs are so extended and wonderful.. and the spaciousness is unlike any other closed can I've heard (although I wouldn't call it truly closed as there's not much in the way of noise attenuation). 

 

My gear used is the Sony ZX1 and ALO Rx Mk3B amp. I look forward to lots of evening listening with the PHVI once I get the sliding cups figured out!

Sorry about the light clamping force, I stretched out the headband because I was sensitive to the clamp when it came out of the box lol. The cups were originally that loose on the sliders and I had similar problems with them moving around but eventually I found that I just had to keep my head relatively still to prevent them from shifting. It's great to hear you're loving the sound though!

Well I think the main thing I have to solve is the cups sliding down on the slider bars... but thanks for pointing me to this mod!

No problem. I think I've fixed that part to where the seal is kept enough. If I can stop the cups from sliding down, then it should be all good. If you're averse to firm headphone clamping force, don't ever try the ML Mikros 90! It feels like a freaking vice grip is locked on your melon after wearing the PHVI!!

Has anyone who owns pandora heard jvc dx1000? 90% of the time I have to use closed headphones so  I'd like my closed headphones to sound as open as possible. Jvc has huge soundstage for a closed can... I was wondering how soundstage and overall opennes compares to jvc. From what I understand Pandoras don't isolate much...I would also appreciate if someone could compare the isolation to dx1000.

They are out of stock now also on amazon Germany: Got mine for an incrediblesteal of 284 EUR -I guess someone at amazone has f****ed up the pricing badly. After the 284 EUR they were raised to 499 EUR and then out of stock.

Maybe You can get them still cheaper on amazone France.


I am also having issues with the earpads. Has anybody got any news on better pads?

I was thinking the same thing about the pricing error. I grabbed mine for £285, a notable saving of £415 : ) They haven't arrived yet but have been dispatched. I didn't know much about these and bought them mostly due to the crazy saving and some reliable recommendations! 

Sounds like I'm going to need to stuff the ear pads out a bit for comfort!

A bit worrying if the sliders are slack.......do other people have this problem? Seems very poor for a product that costs so much!

The PH VI now completely vanished from amazon.de.

 

 

I have them for 2 days now - I don't have the problem with the slack sliders (yet ??).  Getting a good fit on the ears is a little issue for me though - I seem to have larger ears than others. ...

 

I can also confirm that the earpads are a little too soft - after some 30 minutes listening or so I get the feeling that my ear touches the "grill" of the driver.

I will try to stuff the pads with some soft cloth or wool.

 

I didn't A/B them with anything yet, so I can't say anything about SQ.

 

First impression is that they sound very nice with good recordings of vocals and acoustic guitar music.  Bass is good but not as dry as I would wish sometimes. Hope this will change after some burn in (if burn in effects exist at all )
