  1. Audeze EL-8 Open-Back

    4.00 star(s)
    So I treated my myself to a pair of EL-8 OB for Xmas and had really high hopes given the Audeze pedigree.   There are many really positive aspects to these headphones. They are beautifully put together (I experienced no issues with the connectors), very comfortable to wear for log periods and fold small and flat enough to be reasonable travel companions, even if not really being suitable for use on the move.   The bass has a wonderfully depth and speed, typical of planer-magnetic drivers. The mid-range an vocals are also nicely full bodied and...
  2. AKG K 702 Headphones

    So I have essentially re-p[purchased a pair of K702s, in as much as I previously owned and sold a pair of K701s   I had got rid of the K701s because I just wasn't using them much, due to the fact that I'm basically bald and found the bumps on the underside of the headband quite uncomfortable.   I came back to these after a very disappointing experience with a pair of Beyerdynamic T90s - I know some folks love them, but they did absolutely nothing for me.   With the smooth, non-bumpy headband and removable cable, the K702 is pretty much my...

I know personal preferences will be a huge factor, but I found the T90s...

      So Chaps I just wanted to spend some time putting down in words a recent purchase and experience which has been 100% positive, even with the amount of money involved. First a picture of the little blighters. b Sorry but I nabbed this picture from a review because Susy's out with the camera at the moment. Besides, this is far batter than I would do anyway, but I will and some real ones of mine soon which are all-black in finish with the ACS logo in white on one and blue on the other to ID left from right. So why have I bought what look...
