    HIFIMAN Flagship Headphone HE1000 Beta Testing Opportunity Complete - Feel free to still comment

    You should select me and tell the boss that you must hand deliver them. Perfect excuse to get yourself a sneaky trip to Dublin, the land of Guinness and whiskey  (and make my day  ).

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

      I use the HD800s and Abyss with the LAu. I'd still agree that the HD800 has more technical ability to project image around the soundstage however the Abyss is (way) more natural and deeper.

    Paul Simon's Graceland has to be in the top 500 albums of all time? It gets better and better with each listening.

    Having recently bought a Taurus Mk1 from a fellow Head-Fier my initial impressions (10 hours listening time) with my HD800s is that this is a great pairing! I'll try running the alpha primes and compile some notes although I'm not sure I want to stop using the HD800s...
