    1MORE H1707 Triple-Driver Over Ear

    Wayne, I noticed that you list the Amperior as one of your two favorite on-ear, and that is one of my favorite on-ears too; maybe my favorite closed on-ear. I would say that the 1More H1707 (graphene, in my case) and the Amperior both have high PRaT value. I do not own Ultrasones, but I used...

    The Deals DISCUSSION Thread (READ THE FIRST POST!!!)

    I am going to travel to France for work in mid-December, and I will have a free day or two (a Sunday and a Thursday). I will probably spend them in Paris, which is an easy train ride away from where I will work (Compiègne). Any suggestions on deals or particularly interesting stores are...

    I received my PSB M4U 2 from Drop on Saturday. The headphones are white. My impression is very positive, and the headphones fill a gap in my collection, since I did not have working noise canceling headphones. (I am not surprised with the sound quality and character, given the good reviews...

    Variant of the Marantz MPH-2 or of the Mackie MC-250?

    There have been better prices in the past. (Search this thread: $99 from bestbuy.com, amazon.com, and 1More directly in December 2018; $129 on massdrop in February 2019.) Also, be aware that, despite the amazon.com description, these are likely to be the (usually considered slightly better)...

    NAD Viso HP50 : Another superb headphone from Paul Barton?

    FWIW, mine (bought from Audio Advisor on 2018-06-13) have the original ("Frankenstein") headband. I find them comfortable, but I am very tolerant as far as headphone comfort is concerned. I also do not think they creak particularly loudly.

    I can finally report that I received a refund for the price I paid ($69.99). This appeared on my PayPal account on April 9, 2019, as "refund from JD" with "original purchase" date of October 1, 2018. I had to ship the headphones to Hong Kong, and it took several emails (and a long time) to...

    NAD Viso HP50 : Another superb headphone from Paul Barton?

    I use the Amperior as my nighttime headphones, straight out of a Kaito KA1102 radio. While the Kaito is a fine shortwave radio, I use it almost exclusively for local FM stereo (NPR: "Echoes" and classical music at night). The combination of high sensitivity, isolation, comfort, and PRaT of the...

    I bought them for $99 from 1More directly on December 8, 2018. There may also have been on sale for that price on amazon. I found Tyll Heisten's review (https://www.innerfidelity.com/content/1more-triple-driver-over-ear-headphones) to be spot-on. A truly enjoyable sound signature with...

    3 - Has anyone compared the beyerdynamic DT880 and the Samson SR850 for listening to a stereo system? Thank you for your replies, and thanks to Napilopez for the original post. It has been a big help and interesting reading! Dave I have not done any serious comparisons, but I have used both...

    1MORE H1707 Triple-Driver Over Ear

    Can anyone suggest an easy way to tell the right driver from the left driver by touch? I started using the 1More as a night headphone. Some headphones have ridges on one of the cups to help distinguish right from left, but the 1More does not, as far as I can tell. I suspect that there is an...
