    Apollo Audio Lab - Woodbolt Earphones with Dual diaphragm driver and upgraded silver-plated cable - Impression Thread

    Yeah I did tried some a couple of tracks from Vivaldi , Vanessa Mae - fast instruments , and some jazz - ella fitzgerald , billie holiday etc.  They sounded great as well.     I'm not a big fan of pure classical instrumental genre, I probably doesn't know what's is going on or the complexities...

    High End Bluetooth Headphones

    I had the plantronic backbeat pro for more than 6 months, the problem with Bluetooth earphones is , it can get annoying when you are about to use it and tyou realise you forgotten to charge the battery and it goes blinking low power and then dead.. but again, you can always keep a spare...

    NEW ! Stormbolt earphone from apollo audio lab - thread

      Hi RagnarB,  the sound characteristics of this stormbolt is different.  from what I know, Stormbolt earphone uses dual diaphragm within one speaker unit -which has a crossover circuitry ,  whereas IE80 is using a single speaker unit.     Sound wise it will be unfair for me to state which...

    Pioneer SE-A1000 (Sennheiser HD 650 for $45?)

      Hey bro Me X3,   seems we are on the same wavelength -   2 weeks back i was thinking of a "audeze" similar angled earpad as well.   So i ordered a sony earpad (oval shaped) that has slightly bigger diameter than the Pioneer Se - A1000.  Previously i tried to mod the stock ear cap by fattening...

    Pioneer SE-A1000 (Sennheiser HD 650 for $45?)

    Pioneer SE-A1000 (Sennheiser HD 650 for $45?)

    blu tack is to seal the rims of the driver for sound proofing. see my previous photo marked in red.. the choice of blu tack versus example.using rubber tape is as a damper to reduce vibrations-especially in all plastic housing.the sound can be very shrieking. the mod 7-sponge foam is on the...

    Pioneer SE-A1000 (Sennheiser HD 650 for $45?)

    After a series of mod , which i have shared-   the headphone has improved on     1.  Reducing the harsh highs treble which on several tracks sounded shouty and sibilance . Now it has the micro details but much more controlled.  Signature is still classified as "lively" - comparable to typical...

    Pioneer SE-A1000 (Sennheiser HD 650 for $45?)

    Awesome stuffs on the resistance measurements ! ibjamon. i'm sure the 20ft cable chews up the low mw current from some low powered portable players.. I given up on making the drivers angled-it has a risk of breaking the plastic earshell that holds the drivers. i am devising another mod-will...

    Pioneer SE-A1000 (Sennheiser HD 650 for $45?)

    hi phishin, its a tough call to get quantity bass (closed cans) vs wide soundstage n imaging open airy on ( open air design). senn hd650 is the only can that i think makes it right, the dt880 990 is quite top quality. dt 880 n 990 were top league top selling models for many years in the beyer...
