    AudioQuest NightHawk Headphone Unveiled Today

      I don't think that dark necessarily implies heavy or veiled, I think that the latter two terms indicate that you're losing some energy or detail in the music. Makes me think of a Dynavector 10X5, warm/dark but still capable of picking up small detail and reacting quickly. Similarly, a bright...

    AudioQuest NightHawk Headphone Unveiled Today

      Have you ever seen the HD800?   I spent a while with the Nighthawks this afternoon, I'm struck by how comfortable and well-built the headphones are. The pads are extremely soft, the pseudo-AKG style headband is comfy (more so than any actual AKG I've tried), and the rubber suspension is a...

    Do you believe BURN IN for your Audio Stuff like Headphones, Earphones and Amplfiers?

    A special someone has performed your experiment for you:  1, 2, 3, last page for those who hate reading   However, I believe that castleofargh was talking about your average head-fier who believes that, over the course of 1 month of normal use, their headphones have completely changed...

    Do you believe BURN IN for your Audio Stuff like Headphones, Earphones and Amplfiers?

      :D:D:D:D   Alright, so we have one K701 in a sock drawer filled with luxurious alpaca wool undies travelling at .99c, how long must an observer at rest wait such that, due only to relativistic burn-in effects, the K701 becomes more powerful than a god and consumes the universe?

    Do you believe BURN IN for your Audio Stuff like Headphones, Earphones and Amplfiers?

      I see that you use balanced headphones and an expensive solid state amplifier ;) But that is for another discussion.     We can measure the differences between a new headphone and a burned in headphone, but I assume that you, like I, believe that these differences are below the...

      Wow it's pretty amazing that you've managed to rid your body of all opinion! You must have flawless understanding of Nature! You Must Send A Letter To CERN Explaining It All!

    Oh yeah definitely bring your W1000X! Just bring anything that you think sounds good, bonus points for headphones/amps that are a little more esoteric.

    Minneapolis Meet @ The Needle Doctor Saturday June 7th

    Hey hey, I kinda forgot to RSVP here, but Ken knows that I'm coming. I'll bring my HD650s (you can never have too many 650s), HF2s, Gilmore Lite, and Rein Audio X-DAC.   I'm working on getting a couple demo units sent out to us, let's keep our fingers crossed

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    For the longest time I didn't really think that they did much of anything (I bought my set used), but on our demo pair the hinges actually hold shape!   I prefer the useless hinges.

    Best high end headphones for AK240

      And as a side note, you present some very misleading measurements.   Let's express that 2.1V (rms) as peak-to-peak amplitude. 2.1V*sqrt(2)= 3.0V (peak amplitude). 3.0V*2= 6.0V (peak-to-peak)!!! Not so different from that E17 now that we've bothered to express our values coherently!  ...

        Thanks guys  Yep, they are the Emotiva Airmotiv 6, I bought them off a local head-fier a couple months ago, they do good work. I really miss the DM+ to use as a preamp with the speakers, I'm trying to figure out if there are any phono preamps that also have line level input so I can...
