  • About

    Dublin, Ireland
    Stuff that I can't mention on here! ;0)
    Headphone Inventory:
    Onkyo A800 open headphone

    Philips Fildelio X2 (have it several months and liking it)

    Fostex T40RP Mk3 (closed back version, liking it and preferring it to the T60RP. Trying various mods and have removed the cup vent covers on the inside to make it open but vents can be easily covered on the outside for isolation and tuning when required)

    Yamaha HPH-MT220 (modded with modded sheep skin leather pads and new cable)

    AKG K612 Pro (great for mids but needs some power to sound its best)

    Yamaha HPH-200 (rarely used but a good on-ear )

    Paradigm Shift E3M (IEM, rarely used)

    Previously had:
    Audioquest Nighthawk Carbon (was disappointed and returned it)
    AKG K812 Pro (Good for Jazz but not good for vocals, IMO)
    AKG K712 Pro (too much mid bass for me that gives too much body and mid-bass to female vocals)

    Beyer DT1990 Pro {twice} (liked it but not enough)

    Focal Listen (disliked it and very uncomfortable)
    Fidue A73 IEM (decent but ?)
    HiFiMan HE400i (was liking it, good for vocals but one of the drivers failed (solder joint) after 2 weeks and one of the yokes broke ). Bought a replacement 400i but it had a stiff yoke so returned it and will look for something better.
    HiFiMan Sundara, too tight on my head, good but a bit in your face that can verge on irritating.
