    Monoprice Monolith M1060 and M560 Planar Headphones

    I just noticed my M1060's (rev 2) have cracks on all sides of the hinges. Anyone know Monoprice's policy on RMA's on items bought through JetCarrier?

    I would be very interested in a comparison with the M1060!

    I enable prevent clipping to avoid distortion. I guess it depends on your digital volume levels?

    Monoprice Monolith M1060 and M560 Planar Headphones

    I finally applied the Vegan and napkin mod, had to use the bundled adhesive rings for the Vegans since there was so little residue left from the stock pads. It didn't look like my rev2's had recieved much treatment to the inner part of the wooden cups, if any. After modding there's still...

    Monoprice Monolith M1060 and M560 Planar Headphones

    With a 61cm (24 inches) head circumference, the headband is just barely large enough to fit on my head with the stock pads. I have the adjustment maxed out. I find the headband creates a hot spot after half an hour or so. Would prefer if it was with a straight material like the X2 instead of the...

    Damn it I already ordered a MMCX balanced cable and I can't find any that looks like that connector on Venture Electronics / VECLAN, https://www.veclan.com/engappliance_sel_one?eng_ApplianceVo.eac_id=8  , the HE-400 / PM-1 connector seems to be the closest but I wouldn't think it would fit?

    Man if they cancel my order and sell it to someone else after I've already ordered pads and a balanced cable and need the headphones to arrive to Borderlinx for joint shipping within 30 days, they're gonna get hell from me!

    Hm, so I have the opportunity to buy a set of second hand pre-fazor LCD 2.2 for the same price as the M1060+tax/shipping/mids will cost me. Warranty is basically down the drain for both options, considering the hassle of international returns for the M1060's and that the warranty of the LCD had...

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    Heh to each their own I guess, to me they don't sound much different driven straight from my Xperia Z2 vs. from my Jotunheim, and I certainly think it's bass overkill if driven from my tube amp.   I've fallen out of love a bit with the X2's after listening to the HD650 with a balanced cable...

    Schiit Jotunheim Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    I was really surprised by the quality of the internal dac compared to the Mimby, yes the latter is slightly more resolving but I really have to pay attention to hear those differences. In retrospect I probably wouldn't have bothered with the Mimby. Initially the Jot+HD650 had fatiguing treble...

    I doubt it's including taxes, as the sales taxes alone in my country is equal to the shipping fee. BTW are you sure you didn't add the m560/amp combo? That has around $30 higher shipping cost than the plain m560.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    So I bought this balanced cable for my HD650's from Venture Electronics, the spec says "For HD6X0 2-pin", but the connectors seem bigger than my stock HD650 cable connectors, and I'm afraid to use any more force than I have already tried to connect them.   Are there different size connectors...
