    Sony MDR-M1ST - Sony's 2019 Studio Monitor Headphone

    Thanks. They both have the bouncy subwoofer style bass that really feels like it is coming from the housing reflex port. Also they both deliberately avoid harsh sibilance and try not to be too fatiguing. The main difference for me is that the M1ST tries too much to be a neutral monitor, and...

    Cascade Headphone by Campfire Audio

    My personal pick would be the Cascade (and this is the Cascade thread after all). I felt quite a gap between LCD2C and the modern LCD2, so down the track I probably wouldn't feel happy about setting for LCD2C. My choice will be difficult if it was between Cascade and LCD2 (which I like a lot)...

    Cascade Headphone by Campfire Audio

    I have the Cascade and iSINE20, and they are totally different in concept so it's really hard to compare. Cascade is very forgiving in the listening environment and the fit around your head, whereas for iSINE you really have to be in a super quiet room and the fit has to be spot on. I think most...

    Cascade Headphone by Campfire Audio

    I did compare and preferred the Cascade. I like the P5-II and P7 so I also tried to like the P9 but wasn't quite right for me. P9 and Cascade do feel somewhat similar (much more so than P7), but I noticed that Cascade is more consistent and coherent all the way through the frequency range, and...

    Great. I want to push the limits of my Beyerdynamic T8iE and Campfire Andromeda with those cables.

    I haven't got a transport to the venue yet. It would be great if someone can drive me and my two boxes there from the Central/Broadway area. Otherwise I will have to catch a train and won't be able to carry my 50+ headphones and gear...

    Great. I've just added you to the list. Are you bringing the DC37? That's a pretty serious high-end DAC. Would live to try DSD128 and DXD through it

    You can't have my cable, but should I add you to the list of attendees for the meet?

    I wonder if there would be any major headphone sales happening before the meet, to justify buying something new to bring along. Only event I can think of is Black Friday at the end of November..

    Great. I've just added you to the list. Since the event is on Saturday Wing has to be at the shop and won't be able to attend. It would be good if someone else can bring the Focals.

    Thanks. Yes I probably have two big bags full of stuff (I just counted 48 headphones + other gear), so a larger car would be helpful. If anyone else can give me a ride from Central area then that would be great. If I can't find anyone then I might ask you a favour for the ride as the time...
