post #616 of 673

Sorry, no experience with portable cans at all, actually I was thinking of getting one (like the momentum, but now I've seen how small they're....)

I think for portable use I'll stick with IEMs now.

Now I need to find a good pair of portable headphones, any suggestions ? popcorn.gif
Focal Spirit One are very good. Smallish though. NAD Viso HP50 should be quite good for you. If you're interested in on-ear, the KEF M500 should be great.

Yeah, they are quite small. I've never tried IEMs before. Since the original apple earbuds always hurt my ears I refuse to put any headphones INSIDE my ears now. Also because of those I can't think of any in ear headphone sounding good, obviously I'm wrong because of the prices and reviews, but it has been my impression for a long time. I may need to try some. Thanks

I'm going to read some reviews about those 2, I can't handle on ear. Thanks!

Any other Suggestions, besides Focal Spirit one and HP50.. anyone ? popcorn.gif

Well, never really been into in-ears either, the comfort always bugs me. Couldn't stand my ety hf5, even with shure olives.

 

I'm okay with the comfort of my momentums, though it could be better.

Yeah, comfort is one of my main issues.
I think that if you adjust the momentum correctly they will fit good enough. But the thing is that you continuously (matter of minutes) have to be adjusting them and I found that my left ear hurts after 2 hours listening if I didn't adjust them again.

Maybe is just that my ears are bigger than the average IDK..

Nope, Stereodesk was also the first one to open the preorder for the HE-560 [which I took advantage of]

From, my understanding, SD orders larger amounts to account for early preorders.

You can always ask Fred, the owner. He's a really nice guy, enthusiastic about headphones, just as we're :]

Just doing a fun experiment. It goes something like this:

 

Emotiva mini-x -> robrobinette inspired resistor box -> HE-5LE (-12 dB) -> Stax srd-6 adapter (for the muting function) -> Speakers

 

Said the hifiman planars lacked depth? It works pretty well for live recordings, kinda like a natural reverb/bass response out of the head thingy.

 

Next ima try:

Emotiva mini-x -> robrobinette inspired resistor box -> Stax srd-6 adapter -> Speakers

 

Along with:

Stax SRM-T1 -> Stax Sigma (those ugly big boxes with units in front)

honestly... I traded my HE 400 for a modded D2k, I need to reivew it at some point

 

but I like how my Modded D2k sounds, all the speed and bass depth of the HE 400, but closed back. The bigest differance though is the HE 400 has those warm thick Low and central mids with bad Upper mids

 

where as the D2k has more natrual upper mids and a slighty colder low and central mid presentation. But I like my Modded D2k on the go, and at home I use my HE 4

How much did you paid for a modded D2000 ? I'm actually waiting for the 400i which may be available later this month I just sent my 400's back.

hahahaha $750

 

I actually Traded my HE 400 +100 for a D2k with Wood Cups/// then paid $250 for the inner driver Dampenings, a balanced Recable and Lawton Pads... so all in all $750 for which I could have gotten a Modded D7k :/ oh well in all honesty it was about $350 in cash and my HE 400 for my modded D2k, and I'm very happy with it!
