    Greetings Head-Fi... from Larry (headphile.com) with a video...

    Hi Jude and Head-Fi,   Hope you are all doing well... been a long time since I posted. When I joined head-fi, there was only around 7,000 members, haha... Anyway, thought I'd share something I did today, a video with me... singing. Yes, you can finally see the guy who's built every headphile...

    What exactly Headphile does to 770 when it becomes Darth Beyers?

    What exactly Headphile does to 770 when it becomes Darth Beyers?

    I innovate, and would hope that others will to... As someone said, there's plenty of other headphones to mod, so get with it with your own ideas, not lifting mine. My art is like my kids, and noboby likes their kids fooled with. I'm proud of my kids too, whether that's ego or not, I'm not the...

    Rust-Oleum vs. Krylon

    I think I would first brush on a primer like Killz or Zinser123 at the least. I think it would seal the wood better than a spray on primer. You can get it in pint cans for pretty cheap. With that white primer as an undercoat, you will get a vivid red. I've always preffered Krylon, dries faster...

    Headphile site problem?

    My website host is making an upgrade/move... I have no control over this (other than changing hosts), so waiting it out for now. They thought it was only going to take hours, but has obviously turned into longer. Reminds me of when head-fi upgraded and all was not smooth, so I'm not shocked...

    "Elite" is a name I add based on a number of things... At a minimum, an Elite will have BlackGold, splitter, CJ cover, (all options basically), plus be more work and something special beyond a normal build. The "special" part of the equation might be a rarely used wood, refined or unique design...

    Darth Beyer Question

    Quote: Originally Posted by Jigglybootch I'd imagine the woody doesn't make quite as much difference as the cable. They both do different things, and together make a V3... that is if the woody interior shape, size, tweaking, materials, damping, and methods are my doing. None of...
