Nothing changed.  Mike's set was pre-production, and Frank's was an upgrade.  Prime has been voiced the same since release.

Excellent.

 

Do you envision doing a tune-up or something in the future? I've read nothing but good things on the Prime's so probably not, though, thought I ask! ;)

Mike,

What do you mean with your Primes being updated? 

What is the update about?

Mine are from the first ones out so just wondering if they need an update.

Thanks.

Are the pads used in the prime the same as the ones orderable on the site?

https://mrspeakers.com/product/alpha-pads-genuine-lamb-leather/

Thinking of getting thick pads like the audeze vegan for my 400i

Thanks

Yes, they're the same...

Well...

 

Since I just pulled another all-nighter - I GOTTA hit the rack SOON.

BUT:

 

Before I CRASH for a bit, I gotta say that I'm SO GRATEFUL Dan pushed me to stop slackin' off and get my Primes updated to full-Production cans!!

I had pre-production Primes from my initial review...

 

I was so overwhelmed at the sonic improvements - here's the visual lay-out of my all-night listening sesh (while takin' some notes for my future follow-up

review of the Primes - prob gonna called it somethin' like Re-Primed!) and I had to put the finishing touches on my CES adventure article for ETM..

 

Here's what I put my NU Primes through last night + this morning:

 

 

 

 

Pardon me in advance if this message is fragmented - runnin' on fumes!

 

But - (and thank God for note-taking - though I remember most of this because it was such a captivating sesh):

 

I heard an INSTANT improvement in micro and macro-dynamic detail retrieval, which seemed to help enhance the Primes overall soundstaging,

with regard to width, height, and depth. I also noticed, also instantly, the heavier weight and puddle-like ripple of the sub-bass - though its totally controlled.

 

The mids have more sparkle and dimension, and the highs (which used to be my only issue with the Primes actually - as they would seem rolled-off at times) - 

but the highs were wide-open, airy, and extended. Honestly I told Dan it was as if he sent me entirely new headphones!

 

I'm gonna keep experiencing these with the changes, and a full review coming.

And if I haven't reviewed these here at Head-Fi yet - that's just GOTTA be done!!

 

cuz these are F____IN' FUN!!!!

I think Mike has just got the current retail model tuning... if you mean there is some new iteration of the AP, I don't think so. He just played catch-up with what is already in the wild.
