||Custom 10 inch Vampire Wire interconnects (DAC to amp), ZY-005 cable for HD 650.
|Other Audio Equipment
||Used to have an audiophile setup built around Magnaplanar speakers but now just a consumer-grade living room system. After experience with headphones I find the living room system is only suitable for very casual, low volume listening.
||-Tried the HD555 foam mod and did not like it. Caused harshness on female vocals. Undid it.
-Was surprised with the difference the ZY headphone cable made.
||Vocal standards, small combo jazz, big band jazz, chamber music, acoustic blues.
|Gear-Fi (Favorite Non-Audio Gear & Gadgets)
||Nexus 5 Android phone, Samsung Series 3 Chromebook.
