    Earbuds Round-Up

    Now that's very unfair.. Is Penon actually modifying package contents or something.. I assume two cables is what Rose Technics provides with Maria, as there were two cables with Masya aswell. Did you only get one cable with Maria?

    Earbuds Round-Up

    That's strange as I think there were that same picture of copper cable when I ordered, but I still got that original blue cable along with silver braided one. Quite shortly after I got Maria it went out of stock, so I probably got one of last pairs of discounted Maria from Penon. That blue cable...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    I agree, amaizingly coherent tuning! Works indeed well with warmer source. I sometimes like to listen my Maria with a bit of crossfeed as it creates more sense of depth thus making midrange little less forward. Fit is still a little gripe though as sometimes they just don't want to stay in...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Rose Martini looks really nice! Would be interesting to know how they perform compared to Maria. I've now spent over a month with my Rose Maria and I really like them! That soundstage and imaging are still so impressive. I haven't listened much of anything else after I got them. That signature...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Well it's about time Rose moves to more common connector type. :smile: I even measure the pin diameter of Maria cable with micrometer, and it showed exactly 0,75mm. But at least I now have four compatible cables to use with Maria or Masya.

    Shure SRH1840 and SRH1440 Unveiled!

    https://penonaudio.com/accessories/earphone-cable/mmcx/ourart-copper-mixed-silver-plated-mmcx-cable.html To be fair, to my ears there's no any clear or evident improvements in sound. Cable switching process takes several seconds so proper a/b testing can't be done. However I tested cables at...

    Shure SRH1840 and SRH1440 Unveiled!

    I'm no way an expert regarding cables. To me, basically cable is a cable indeed, BUT it's more like good enough cable is good enough cable for certain headphone (and in certain gear). Most evident and logical improvement cable can have is cable diameter being larger ie thicker or more cores, and...

    Shure SRH1840 and SRH1440 Unveiled!

    I've listened my srh1440 lately in purely stock form. Still sounds very good! Clear, detailed with great open soundstage and imaging. I've understood that srh1440 has brighter signature than srh1840. I wonder if those upgrade cables would improve srh1440. They definitely don't lack high end, but...

    The New Thinksound Woodies. ON2, Rain3 and MS02

    I've been listening my Rain3 iems recently. They sound smooth and very non-fatiguing, really ideal for long laid back backround listening sessions. Gotta give them some credit! Really pleasant sound.

    post your grado mods....

    I bought some cheap (not genuine) G-cushions for my SR225e and they look similiar to Ear Zonks. Made of one density and they do thicken/darken sound a bit indeed. Since they're cheap pads I decided to try make them slightly thinner by cutting foam off from center of pads. It removed that...

    post your grado mods....

    I personally use 280-285 c° temperature with most of my electronic works. I have soldered many headphone/iem drivers and no problems. Real key though is to have proper soldering technique (and gear) so soldering process is fast.

    Beyerdynamic DT 150: Bloody Brilliant!

    DT150 is absolutely magical gem in headphone world. However I have recently started to hear that my right, cable side cup has somehow different tone. Like slightly more full, vibrant and open (wider) tone. On many songs soundstage just simply seems/feels to pan more to right side, or is just...
