CanJam SoCal 2015, March 28-29, 2015 - Page 23  

post #331 of 1339

Will there be a Sennheiser Orpheus there? It's one of the last few headphones that I'd love to try. The others being...

 

Audio Technica ATH-L3000

 

and...

 

Sony MDR-R10

 

I get the feeling I may end up loving the Orpheus a lot...

Did you get a chance to demo the HE-1000 at CES?  I thought it was superior to the Orpheus, but the listening conditions at the Sennheiser booth were atrocious...  

 

I hope they have the HE-1000 at CanJam so I can listen to them again!

Well, unfortunately, I didn't get to CES.

 

But I'd definitely love to give the HE-1000 a listen, of course. I loved the HE-560, and I feel it could have been perfect if the tuning and damping was right at stock.

 

I can totally fathom someone preferring the HE-1000 to the Orpheus... or any electrostatic headphone in general. I feel like that's the one flaw with electrostatic: not enough weight, so... everything sounds a bit too etheral, too floaty, not physical or planted, though wonderfully transparent.

 

That's my pet peeve, but I'd like to give it a go anyway just to get an idea of how it sounds... or how something that's almost flat from the mids up would sound like.

I might bring a bass light R10...haven't brought dynamic stuff in a long time.

^It would be awesome to hear them.

Oh yes, please. That one would probably be so rare at this point that to even find see one in person is like seeing a miracle!

Highly doubtful on the Orpheus. Even at the Sennheiser booth at CES, it was tucked away in the back of the booth within an enclosed room. It sounded incredibly smooth and natural, I would have loved to have spent more time with it.

I think it would be safe to assume that the new Hifiman prototypes will be at CanJam and they are very special indeed.

That would be pretty amazing if you could bring them and surely one of the highlights of the Member Showcase!

Too bad that one guy stopped bringing his Orpheus after bringing it to at least a couple of meets I went to. Hard to do when you don't own it anymore...

At a recent show one nice member let me hear his Abyss. Wow. I'm not running out to spend that kind of money. But Wow!

HE-1000 is planar.

:p 

 

Personally, I will be transporting my special order 3x oversize Fruit of the Loom briefs using a naturally constructed organic mounting device, which is permanently attached. This organic mounting device will be riding on special triple wide New Balance tennis shoes, sporting the ultimate in pressure relief insoles, that cost me $43 clams a pair. These extraordinary measures are necessary to keep my feet from screaming in pain while I truck my 3x size carcass around this hotel for a full day, gawking at Lord Only Knows how many different electronic devices and passive listening appliances.

 

On the bright side, I lost 65 pounds this last year. So at least I'm no longer in 4x territory.
