    AKG K340 Electrostatic Phones

    I recently acquired a minty K340 after selling my first pair several years ago. I remember really liking it at the time but ultimately sold it to try out other headphones but always wanted to give them another try. It was a bit of a shock to listen to these again and hear how fast and clean...

    AKG K340

    Quick Update: I had a feeling that current (not voltage) was the secret to unlocking the K340s abilities. I pulled out a Bacon HPA-01 which is a current based amplifier and has two outputs on the front. One is current based and the other is voltage based. I first plugged the K340 into the...

    DROP + HIFIMAN HE-R7DX CLOSED-BACK LAUNCH

    I wonder if the RD7X would have a larger soundstage compared to the Focals. It been awhile since I heard a closed back Focal so I dont recall where they sit in the spectrum. Your Denon would be an interesting comparison against the HIFIMAN...

    DROP + HIFIMAN HE-R7DX CLOSED-BACK LAUNCH

    The inner volume of the earpad is roughly 2.3"wide, 2.6" tall and 1" deep. They also have a slight angle. Id consider these pads to be fairly roomy compared to one like the 6XX which is narrower. The headband and sliders should be accommodating to those with larger heads, you can take...

    DROP + HIFIMAN HE-R7DX CLOSED-BACK LAUNCH

    As a brand HIFIMAN tends to do a lot of development and testing of new materials and processes. The dynamic drivers used in these headphones were an evolution of a driver originally designed for an IEM which was later scaled up to the larger 50mm version used in the R7DX.

    DROP + HIFIMAN HE-R7DX CLOSED-BACK LAUNCH

    Considering these headphones are dual entry Hifiman verified that the R2R bluetooth amp/dac is not compatible with these headphones. They do not have the wiring between the headband that's required for the adapter to work.

    New AKG headphones K175, K245, K275

    Looking good! Give them some time to settle in - I noticed the mids/vocals were recessed at first but started to hear more separation with a few days of break in. I'm growing fonder of their sound with time, looking to do some more comparisons soon now that they have opened up.

    New AKG headphones K175, K245, K275

    @RockSloth I would say they Isolate closer to a semi-open design. Putting on the K245 with nothing playing you can still hear a fair amount of ambient room noise, more than a closed back certainly.

    New AKG headphones K175, K245, K275

    I would say the K240DF is "brighter" in the treble range however they do not come off as sharp or sibilant, but rather clear and smooth in how they render treble details. I'm still formulating my thoughts on the K245 they certainly do some things quite well with regards to low end performance...

    New AKG headphones K175, K245, K275

    I also ordered 2 of the brainwavz round pads to see what impacts they have on the FR.

    Sansui Integrated with Headphones

    I did spend another $500 to have mine brought up to spec. by a qualified repair shop. I highly recommend doing so if the amp has never been serviced before otherwise you're not going to be getting the most from these vintage amps. I also love the amp has two phono inputs for both my turntables!

    Sansui Integrated with Headphones

    I recently picked up and refurbished a Sansui AU-517 integrated amp for my primary system. The amp is being used primarily to drive my speakers but I was surprised by how good the headphone output is this amp. I have owned several other integrated amps and usually find their headphone out to...
