    Ultrasone Pro 900 Impressions Thread

    Had my pro 900i for a while. They are quite like I remembered them. Initially I was awed by the comfort because I gotten so used to heavy woodies and magneplanars as of late though I realize in the long run there is quite some pressure to the ears instead. As for sound quality quite low fi tbh...

    Are men more 'sensitive' to the sounds they hear?

    See no reason to play vinyl. CD is a superior format in every regard :)

    Ultrasone Pro 900 Impressions Thread

    I bought it new from thomann for around 150 euro or so Strange that original would be better how many 900 vs 900i have you sampled :)

    Ultrasone Pro 900 Impressions Thread

    Well burnin do actually seem to make some difference with the ultrasones. But big variations is probably quite common across the board it´s just that there is a rare breed those that buy multiple versions of the same headphone. I long kind of expected they would sound roughly the same but I...

    E-MU Wooden Series Headphones

    Just received my emu teak from Massdrop. Didn´t do my research fully so didn´t realise they actually don´t ship with removable cables. There is an extremely short cable stuck on and the extension cable I got doesn´t work. There is some proprietory solution here? You need the same cable as hd...

    Formula 1-fi (Read the First Post!)

    Crazy how this thread died. Head-fi totally lost interest in formula one? Last year we got an epic battle for the championship with two different teams something you aren´t really spoiled with in formula one. Last race corrupted though which was a shame. First race Ferrari of all cars on top...

    Rate The Last Movie You Watched

    widescreen on 4:3 panels is no big hit! Then we bought widescreens and then everything was rendered at 21:9 so still black bars but at least not 50 %+ black bars :D I would love to see a future where 21:9 is the norm but to expensive to manufacture so probably won´t happen. Just happy it still...

    Rate The Last Movie You Watched

    Science goes forward. It´s now known it´s a myth zombies can´t run. What is the point with zombies that makes a lot of sound and can´t walk anyway. So easy to avoid its not like they can handly weapons either. Anyway I am happy the zombie trend have died off so will not see that one. Not at...

    Reply to review by 'oqvist' on item 'MrSpeakers Ether C Flow'

    My Ether C flow has no distortion. I first got a demo ether c flow. It sounded quite different from the one I purchased The first one did certainly appear to have a treble emphasis whereas the one I got do feel more balanced and not quite as hollow in the mid range as the demo would. Superb...

    MrSpeakers ETHER Flow and ETHER C Flow -- Inspired by Electrostatic Headphones

    Already ditched the felts. I tried the least invasive felt as in the black foam. They did exactly what I was fearing they would do. Muddle the sound. For those having some medical issues with treble they may help I suppose if you can´t eq but otherwise I have no idea who would want this :D It´s...

    MrSpeakers ETHER Flow and ETHER C Flow -- Inspired by Electrostatic Headphones

    Ether c Flow is quite nice on my trafomatic audio head one. Fells like it could do with more watt though but as always its pleasant. I use it as a preamp to a more poweful solid state which make the setup a hybrid and that was heaven.

    Kennerton ODIN, MAGISTER, VALI, Magni, Gjallarhorn, Rögnir, Thridi, Wodan, Thekk, and Thror Discussion.

    Bending will probably not be enough though. The full rich magni mids are there but you must compress the earpads a ton to get there. Pointless I know but I would do a shallow pad mod for it if the magni didn´t exist. It´s kind of hard to get the compression just right when you do it manually but...

    Trafomatic Experience Head One

    Still hanging on to this gem. I have struggled with it last year or two though. Got some kind of distortion in the right channel in the bedroom where I have it. I did notice it went away in the living room and kitchen so thought it was all my electronical gear. Not much to do as I need them as...
