|Other Audio Equipment
||Previously had 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.
||-Was surprised with the difference the ZY headphone cable made.
-Tried the HD555 foam mod and did not like it. Caused harshness on female vocals. Undid it.
||Vocal standards, small combo jazz, big band jazz, chamber music, acoustic blues.
