Am I the first owner ??? Qualia 010 !!! - Page 35

post #511 of 645
This is exactly the reason why i dont want the pleather earpads on the DT770s and sent back for the velour instead - heat and humidity a sweaty earpad doth make. the Beyer rep even called the pleather pad "that vinyl one" lol. The grado foam is like a sponge and probably get a tad scratchy with H&H, that's all.

the 010 is a light and breezy contraption. even in killer H&H i bet the pads will stay cool on you- if not, that pretty red leather is going to get some interesting ear sweat marks!

doesnt that show the rs1= isolates more in bass, and 650s isolate more in highs?

This has been an amazing thread, guys! There is something for everyone to learn. Lots of interesting input.

Nik, congrats on your Qualia 010 and RP010 system. I cannot believe that you are now selling your Egmont Reference amp! I'm going to have to pass this time, but I'm sure it will find a new home very soon. Mikhail has added Gold Point stepped attenuators to the Egmont Signature amp and that should keep me happy with the O2's for a long time to come.

Nice to see you Wayne, what about you? Is all right?
I wait for more news about the Egmont Signature, man!
Yes the Qualia system is something incredible... I cannot believe that a dnamic can can sound better than a electrostatic, more details and transparent. I found for the first time some "defects" in the Omega II ...

Best!

Damm NIK....you don't waste any time....hahaha

Hey Nik you should already accept bids on your Qualia setup, so when Omega 3 will be realised you'll be able to speed the process even more. LOL

Anyway carry on my friend you make for great, great fun on this board!

It just shows how good he thinks the rp010 and Qualia sounds.

If NIk wants to get rid of the omega 2 setup, it has to be much better!
post #522 of 645
At the point the things are, and considering the level of performance of those headphones at that level, I don't think that it will be an easy task to beat the Qualia, if it outperforms the Omegas 2, as Nik asure us......just an idea....but what do I know?

Nik I'm really jealous, nothing personal, but for the first time since I'm visiting headfi, I wouldl ike to have more money....LOL...

Now this is a guess because I have heard neither headphone in question. But I would think that at this level it is less a question of which is better and more a question of which do you like.

Good point, I agree completelly, at that point it will be more like a reference......that one being better than other.
