    Sony MDR-1A - Sony's latest update on the 1R

    Now that you mention it, I suppose it's a little steep. I guess I wasn't phased because I've paid more than that for pads in the past. We'll see. I'm probably willing to pay if they're built partially to spec but with some added depth. The OEM pads you mention: They would be the same as the pads...

    Sony MDR-1A - Sony's latest update on the 1R

    Well, I heard back from them a few days ago, but so far no information regarding ordering. They told me that there could be a minute difference in fitment between the 1R and 1A pads and that I should send them measurements in accordance with their guidelines. The guidelines are contained in a...

    Sony MDR-1A - Sony's latest update on the 1R

    Sure thing. I'll post the procedure when I hear back from them.

    Sony MDR-1A - Sony's latest update on the 1R

    Their website is very confusing. Or, I should say that it's confusing there's neither a way to place an order on their website nor a prompt to contact them via email to place an order. I've emailed them about placing an order. If, as you say, the 1R's pads fit the 1A, these should be excellent...

    Sony MDR-7520

    That's too bad! I'd love to give them a listen with the Beyer pads. While I worry that my issue with the headphone could be with its fundamental signature, I'd still love to see how much that signature is changed by padrolling and...   ...by burn in. I'm relatively sure the headphones I...

    I'll see if I can work out a listen with the Beyer pads.

    Sony MDR-7520

    Sorry, I should have been clearer. I'm familiar with soundstage depth. I meant that sometimes the whole image appeared to be coming from behind my head, or that some sounds appeared to come from behind my head in an unnatural way. In other words, the 7520 seemed to image weirdly to me.    I...

    Audeze SINE Series

    Sounds like you have it figured out.

    Audeze SINE Series

    Audeze is hardly "some upstart 'audiophile' company".

    Sony MDR-7520

    Enjoyed the review. It was helpful since I have extensive experience with both the LCD-2.2 and HD650. I like the signatures of both of those phones. Since you think the 7520 makes an excellent companion to the LCD-2.2, I'll put it on my shortlist. My primary genre is IDM/electronic (and its...

    Sony MDR-7520

    I'd looked into the T5p2 awhile back. There were a couple of issues. First, the price is a bit high. For awhile now I've been looking for an affordable, full-sized closed back headphone to complement my LCD-2.2. I would like to keep the cost under $500 -- preferably far under. Second, I've had a...

    Sennheiser HD800S loaner program @TTVJAudio.com

    Thanks to @Todd for putting together the loaner tour and for including me. @Todd’s contributions to the community are considerable. I bought one of my first higher-end headphones from him – a Grado PS500 – when I got into the hobby.   For a while now I’ve been looking for a headphone that...

    Audeze SINE Series

    That's more or less how the first-gen Momentum over-ears fit me. I'd thought from pictures that the Sine might fit this way. Of course, as @FlyingFungus points out, pictures might well be deceiving. While the Momentum over-ears weren't terribly comfortable headphones, they weren't terribly...

    Audeze SINE Series

        I've wondered just how "on-ear" they are. The opening looks bigger than, say, the opening on the first-gen Momentum over-ears. Those headphones weren't really over-ear but still kept the pads mostly off the ears. If the Sine rests in the same way, then I don't think I'd have any issues...
