'ello Kiddies...

 

Spywall from Texas here. I'm a wanna' be audiophile for over 35 years, husband and father of (almost) 3. My first set of 'phones was a pair of KOSS something or others that my mom bought at Sears in '77 because she didn't want to hear KISS and Zeppelin anymore.

 

Since then I've owned sets from Sony, Yamaha, Audio Technica, Sennheiser, Shure, U.E. and AKG.

 

Currently running, AKG K240's (Made in Austria), 2 pairs of U.E. 11's with a Fiio Fugiyama. Tomorrow my new Little Dot MKII, Fiio E18 and AKG K271's arrive.

 

Cheers… here's to many great hours of solitary, sonic bliss...

Ooooh I didn't see this thread before!

 

Hello, my name is deadofmind, and I am not really an audiophile. I simply have a pair of Sennheiser HD 280 Pros that I've had for years and absolutely adore! So I'm here trying to upgrade them and make them all nice since I just went and bought some new earpads and a headband :) I will be attempting to put a detachable cord, and a detachable mic boom onto my headphones!

 

Nice to meet you peeps!

Hi.. I just joined this forum.. I have a pair of Klipsch headphones to sell and was wondering is there a time limit that I have to be on here before I can sell?

Hello!

 

I've browsed Head-Fi here and there but never bothered to make an account. I'll shamelessly admit I made an account to purchase HD650's which I did. Schiit took forever to ship my Modi/Magni so I have not heard their full potential yet. Also bought Denon AH-D600's from Best Buy for $150 so my wallet hates me right now. Also got Westone ADV's and Klipsche S4's

 

Before last week I had experience with ATH-M50's as with everyone else and a pair of V-Moda M80's I got on clearance for $40 at Radio Shack :etysmile:. Excited to have a great closed back set of cans, open back, a portable set, and average IEM's to work with. My hobbies are too expensive. What's up fellas.

Magni is some good Schitt, it'll be worth the wait. I am a little sad to hear how long they took, I may be purchasing from them soon.

How many days did they take to ship your order?

Hey all, friend at work turned me onto this site, I swear he has different headphones for each day of the week :-)

I'm new to headphones, not getting any younger and looking for enlightenment regarding headphones.

Hey guys!

 

I'm a student and new to audiophilia (If you can call it that?? It sounds gross) I have always used speakers since I was a kid and have been using logitech z4's for the last 6 years. Bought the SWTOR gaming headset a couple years ago.

 

They blew my mind away. 

 

They were better in every way to any headphone I have listened to (all of which were 100 NZD at most). Then I had a feeling that they were going to break on me a couple weeks ago and had been researching into more gaming headsets whilst saving up. I was gonna get the steelseries h-wireless.

 

I Finally came across people saying that you can get better audio with a good pair of cans a week ago and did more research and now I'm addicted. 

 

My headset stopped working on me a few days ago (How did I know??? seriously.. too creepy).

I saved up enough to get me an Audio Technica ATH-A900X which should arrive between the 21st and 27th. :L3000:

I'm still getting used to the jargon being thrown around :confused_face_2:

I can sort of imagine what it all means but I'm not going to know until I compare my flat mates bose oe2i and other flatmates sol republic master tracks to the A900x, both of which I was never interested in... until now.

Looking forward to the community, I have been lurking the a900x review thread for a couple days now :ph34r: and finally made the jump into the forum!

All i can say is I'm gonna be burning a hole through my wallet(s) hahahaha.



TLDR:

 

Hi I'm Zen! :D

I'm a student.

 

New to the audiophile world.


Just got me an A900X which should arrive in a week or so as my first good pair of cans.

When I ordered my Valhalla, I paid for the 2-day USPS shipping over FedEx. I'm in Chicagoland (they're in the LA area). Schiit shipped on a Monday, IIRC, but it didn't arrive until Friday.

Unfortuntately, I asked for a black Valhalla and got a silver one. I was able to get it shipped back on the same Friday (excellent customer service response!), my black Valhalla was shipped the following Monday, and it arrived...on a Friday again, despite the same USPS 2-day shipping.

I don't know if FedEx is any better or worse, but this is one of the rare instances where I will completely criticize the USPS. I could track the packages, I knew Schiit sent them, but it still took 3-days just to get from LA to Chicago (on supposedly 2-day shipping).

tl;dr
I think it's USPS and not Schiit.

My order will need to come to Australia, I really hope they don't sent it by pigeon, the Magni would be far too heavy for it! :D

I have a Magni right beside me however it isn't mine. :/
