    Meze EMPYREAN - the First Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone

    Empyreans are truly very, very easy to drive, so i just cant understand your talk about the headphone amp. Ok, they reveal easily if amp is not good, but most of them are quite transparent nowdays on easy loads, as empyreans are. Even if you gave crappy output impedance, that wont do any damage...

    New Beyerdynamic T5p 2nd generation

    So i have heard. Never actually had opportunity to compair these to v2, but you can get gen1. quite cheply and put these 15 dollar pads in them, and win the audio game, because i really dont believe, that they have done nothing to drivers on gen. 2, but tuned those just with softer pads. :wink:

    New Beyerdynamic T5p 2nd generation

    Forgot to mention, that when i got my first gen T5p, few months ago, i find out that those original pads are just horrible. Just uncomphy and overall... meh. So i ordered cheap artificial leatherpads from china, and wow, these things came alive! So much more comfortable and finally there is...

    New Beyerdynamic T5p 2nd generation

    T5P:s are quite easy load, so iphones own dac is more than capable to drive them properly. No other need for external DAC, exept if you need to crank up volume more than it can deliver. Apples adapter dac might be small and inexpensive, but they have the best engineers on their team...

    Grado Fan Club!

    Sorry i explained that poorly. English is not strong language to me. All the drivers of Sr60-325 are the same, as far as i know. But they pick them by manufacturing tolerance and match them that way to wich goes to what model. I have opened and measured and modded over 20 different pair of...

    That both of the drivers are performing as close to each other as possible. 125 and 225 are matched even better and better. There is basically no any other differences between them. But as said before, performance between revisions vary between year to year, so SR80:s from this year, and from 5...

    Ollo audio: Pro headphones from Slovenia

    Definedly S4R. Less noise leakage from and to surround. And they are a bit more fun sounding.

    Grado Fan Club!

    That was hypotetical example. My point was that there is way too many options, but not any clear line or logic behind those models. If one likes some model, but there is newer version that sounds very different, thats very confusing. Or you might think that next modelnumber on line means its a...

    Ollo audio: Pro headphones from Slovenia

    Hello all. There is allready much sayed on these wonderfull cans in here, but here is my two cents: I have both, open and closed versions and in my DAW there is two independent headphone outs, so its quite easy to compare these both. First of all S4R are just magnificent closed back headphones...

    Grado Fan Club!

    As i said: Results vary from model to model. I have tried all grado pads on various grado models, and then some. There is no "one pads rule them all". For example i have find that flats works nicely on many models if you like big bass, and tamed highs, chinese pads rules on 125-225. Originals...

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    So what pads do you currently have? There is different pads on different revisions. (Sorry but your picture tells about nothing). Mine came with Focus A:s and they are still like new.
