||Designing headphone wood cups/leather accessories in my spare time.
|What I do for a living:
||Love to find underdog audio equipment good for electronic music that punches above its weight/price class.
Signature I'm seeking - tons of micro-detail, rich tonality, controlled textured bottomless low-end, lush balanced mids, smooth marathon listening session non-fatiguing treble. Equipment with 'muscle and finesse' basically.
****LCD 2.1 - The deepest darkest chocolate with a dash of coffee & cream.
****FOSTEX T20-RP Mk2 - Exotic wood DIY custom modification.
(Closed 2.1 tuning style)
****DENON D2k - torn down/disassembled so long it hurts.
****LZ A3 Hybrid BA IEM
****SOLD*** LZ A2 hybrid dynamic/balanced armature IEMs
****SOLD*** MODIFIED HiFiMAN HE-400
****SOLD*** MODIFIED NAD VISO HP-50
