    The PENON official thread

    Just popping in to post that I'm still loving my Globes too. Doing a bit of tip rolling to see if I could get even more out of them. After I nail that I'm grabbing a new cable for them too, though mainly for comfort purposes.

    The Closed-Back Headphone Thread (Plus Comparisons & Reviews)

    That's an interesting recommendation, I have literally never heard of these, hahah. Seem pretty dang hard to find, but I'll certainly keep an eye out. I actually have a pair of 99Cs, though I don't use them very much. I agree that they sound pretty messy for electronic music--or really any...

    Best IEM tips?

    Thanks! If the energy crisis won't suck my wallet dry and leave it for the dead, checking out all these IEM tips I'm interested in surely will lol.

    Kinda reminds me of a cozy quilt you can wrap around yourself in the coming dark autumn and winter evenings, to shield you from the cold I like it

    Best IEM tips?

    Interesting! I'll have to check out the T300T at some point. Is it this one: https://www.amazon.com/TANCHJIM-Enhancement-Transmisson-Pressure-Silicone/dp/B08Z3J1ZJL ? I guess that's a set of two different tips, with T300B being a "bass enhancement" tip, but the other one seems to be the one...

    Best IEM tips?

    The MAXs do seem like they make the IEMs sound a bit more aggressive in a way. From some real quick comparisons, I think I prefer the ePros for acoustic and especially vocal-focused songs and the MAXs for electronic music. I wish I had multiple pairs of the same IEMs, constantly changing these...

    Best IEM tips?

    Still getting used to the Sedna MAXs on my Penon Globes (got the tips yesterday) so I can't really compare them to my other tips yet, but wow, first impressions are positive indeed. I think the bass got boosted a bit too much even for me me compared to the ePro horn tips I used before, but I got...

    The PENON official thread

    Does Penon sell cables where the ear guide thing is, like, bendable (?) to fit your ears perfectly? I got rid of the unpleasant ear guides on my Globe cable a while ago and it helped with comfort for sure, but also the IEMs are so big that now they sort of droop a bit in my ears, so clearly a...

    The PENON official thread

    Grabbed my Globes and Qudelix 5k and went to lie on a deck chair on my balcony, did absolutely nothing but listen to music and watch the clouds drift by for over an hour and the time just flew by Absolute ****ing bliss I don't know why I even got up and came back inside. Think I'll go make...

    The PENON official thread

    Had to take care of some chores so I took the Globes with me to the outside world and wow, they do a damn good job with isolation. And that's with the flimsy ePro tips, I would imagine the isolation is even better with some thicker tips. Could enjoy music at a very reasonable volume even when...

    The PENON official thread

    Got my Globes. First impressions are very positive--I'm actually quite surprised by how close they sound to my heavily-EQ'd-to-personal-taste Honeydews, so the stock sound signature (with medium ePros) is definitely for me. Immediately it feels like these handle bass much better than the...

    The PENON official thread

    I hope so too! I'm keeping my expectations in check cause it's always entirely possible it just won't be for me, but it's like... I have to know, you know? Even if it does end up being a disappointment, at least I'll have another reference point and I'm one step closer to finding the best...

    The PENON official thread

    **** it, ordered the Globes. Had a bit of extra money to spend since I finally managed to sell my Aeolus so I figured I might as well go for them over the Orbs. My fellow Europeans, how long has it taken for stuff to arrive from the Penon store for you? Hoping I'll get these soon. edit: Also...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    What kind of changes (if any) did you notice in the sound with the ZMF suede pads? Still planning to get the 650s as my forever cans at some point, but there's something about the stock pads that I don't really like. Feel uncomfortable on my skin after a bit for some reason.
