Headphone Inventory

Love to find underdog audio equipment good for electronic music that punches above its weight class....

LCD 2.1 - The deepest darkest chocolate........work in progress.
(My modification to MOON EBONY wood + (direct to planar soldered) TOXIC CABLES LITZ, male Kobiconn (RSA/ALO) to balanced speaker taps mod/ SE Oyaide 3.5" to female Kobiconn (RSA/ALO). Crocodile skin headband or crocodile skin suspension headband. Black micro-suede 2014 earpads with dust filter removed.)


FOSTEX T50RP - " 'Baby' closed LCD-2.1 signature"
(My modification to ....gloss black modded dual-entry cups / crocodile skin headband / Litz cryo balanced cables Kobiconn (RSA/ALO) balanced to 3.5mm + Kobiconn (RSA/ALO) to balanced speaker taps / soft black suede-topped HM5 memory foam earpads / textured leather/suede elastic suspension headband )
Sound sig. ...Overall DARK like LCD-2.1..slightly enhanced bass + "de-shouted mids" + treble edge tamed signature.


DENON D2K - Dynamic cone monsters
(My modification to ....wood upgrade kit to cups in Albizia Saman/Monkey Pod wood and new Mogami balanced/SE re-cable DIY kit, internal modification after extended listening, Sennie 650 headband cushion, suede-topped HM5 memory foam earpads.

OWNED

***SOLD*** MODIFIED HiFiMAN HE-400

***SOLD*** MODIFIED NAD VISO HP-50


***TRADED*** BERESFORD BUSHMASTER MKII DAC/AMP - Very natural sounding/organic 3D DAC. Headphone out only good for dynamic cans in my experience.....not enough power for planars. A real hidden gem in the low-end pricing. May pick it up again. I guess this is as close to organic/natural as Wolfson ever got with the overlooked/obscure WM8716 DAC chip. Does not lose detail either. Popping/noise issues on anything above 16/44 on some hardware/software combos....but even at that....Redbook 16/44 flawless... 10/10 as it performs @ 4x its price !

***SOLD*** TEMPLE AUDIO BANTAM GOLD Speaker Amp - 50 watts into 8 ohms/6-8 watts of underused headroom into 50/60 ohms
