    The Hyland Headphones Saturn One, Saturn Two and Jupiter One thread

    I'll keep that in mind. I tend to listen to my music fairly loud, but also know my ears need some TLC haha. As long as they don't die after a year like my Elears...

    The Hyland Headphones Saturn One, Saturn Two and Jupiter One thread

    I'm not surprised, the Darkvoice's design is definitely meant for high impedance headphones. It struggles to deliver current to lower impedance phones like the Saturns. It's possible these cans have lower sensitivity and that's why there's a difference between your other cans.

    The Hyland Headphones Saturn One, Saturn Two and Jupiter One thread

    Yeah, I enjoy having that space, but only to a certain degree. I found myself too many times drifting off following some random bass line or something in the HD800 instead of actually listening to the song haha, guess my ADD doesn't help. I'll let you know how it sounds with my CTH once I get...

    The Hyland Headphones Saturn One, Saturn Two and Jupiter One thread

    Thats good to hear, I didn't want something extreme like the TH900s in terms of profile, just slightly more exciting in the bass and treble. I used to own HD800s so I'm glad its not that spacious, sometimes the soundstage took me completely out of the song on those. Hopefully they sound halfway...

    The Hyland Headphones Saturn One, Saturn Two and Jupiter One thread

    Well looks like I got the last pre-order...wanted to get myself a little gift for a job promotion and came across this thread. Everytime I try and get out of this hobby, it just sucks me back in :smile_phones: In any case, I'm excited to see how they sound. Grados were the first pair of...

    Rupert Neve Designs Announces The RNHP: Precision Headphone Amplifier

    That she is, a noticeable improvement from my Polaris, and a great pairing with Focals. Crystal clear and perfectly silent, and since the Elears aren't hard at all to drive it gets plenty loud for me. I'll add my picture of the Utopias little brother...someday I'll get there!

    Project Ember S/N:0001 (w/ 6N6P tube upgrade)

    I'm pretty sure I owned this at one point...fantastic little amp! Glad to see it's still kicking.

    Rupert Neve Designs Announces The RNHP: Precision Headphone Amplifier

    Bought one of these for my Elears, I hope all the good reviews are warranted. Figure it will be a great pair considering the Elears are pretty efficient.

    Focal Elear - Impressions Thread

    The SR80s are what got me into audiophile land. Still love the way Grados do guitar. But theElears are just another level, especially since I got my mimby. They just sound like music should be heard.

    Focal Elear - Impressions Thread

    That's what I plan on doing. I was tempted to sell my Elear, but I think I'm going to give it a few weeks. I love the sound, but unfortunately I'm always way too curious about other headphones. I'm going from a pre 4490 modi uber, so I'm sure it will be a solid improvement. Just think a 1000...

    Focal Elear - Impressions Thread

    Anyone use a mimby with their Elear? Just hought one to go with my Project Polaris, still thinking about upgrading my amp as well but wouldn't even know where to start.

    Schiit Modi 2 Uber - Wobbly Source Selector

    Selling my Modi 2 Uber I purchased in January 2016 since I just bought a Mimby. Works completely fine, for some reason the selector knob for the source doesnt quite fit right or is missing a part or something. The button works fine, just figured I'd put it out there. I'm sure someone could...

    Focal Elear - Impressions Thread

    Haha, I had to do the same when I told my girlfriend I just dropped a grand on the Elears...but then I just ended up buying her a pair of Louboutins, so now she can't yell at me for my silly hobby. I think she'll be more confused when I upgrade my amp and DAC.

    IC: Focal Elear For Sale Or Possible HD800

    Have a pair of Focal Elears I bought a month ago second hand. Work perfectly and have less than 200 hours on them. Willing to sell them or trade for a good condition, fairly late serial number HD800. I'll post pictures soon, just think I enjoy the Sennheiser sound more.

    New from Garage1217, the solid-state Project Polaris!

    I just murdered my wallet and picked up an Elear that's coming in tomorrow. Anyone have any experience with the Polaris and Elear? Or will I have to try and write down my extremely vague and confused impressions?
