    Master & Dynamic MH40 Over Ear Headphone

    Does anyone still have the guide for rewiring the MH40 for balanced? The blog entry is no longer available and I'd like to try my hand at it since I just picked up a backup pair cheap off eBay.

    Sennheiser HD820

    Really funny how much different people hear things. I owned both and thought the exact opposite as you. Couldn't sell off the Stellia fast enough once I got the HD820. Heck, not only the Stellia, I sold off the Empyrean and Hifiman 1000SE, too... Seeing all the comments on how seal dependent...

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    The Zeus was a good purchase at it's original price, which was more than double the Massdrop price...provided the sound signature is to your liking, of course.

    The Empyrean is impeccably built, there is no doubt there.

    Meze EMPYREAN - the First Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone

    I have the SE, not the v2. Empyrean has a thicker, darker sound. Greater bass presence. Mids are more forward. Overall, it's the more musical of the 2. SE is thinner, brighter sound. Wider soundstage, highs are more prevalent than Empy. Nothing is particularly forward, everything is equally...

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    Very, very strong emphasis on bass. Too much for me, but I think the Zeus R bass is right on point, which many feel is light on bass.

    iBasso SR1 semi open Headphone. Limited production.

    Thank you for your thoughts. With the talk of the SR1 competing and replacing some of the most highly regarded headphones on this thread (haven't heard any of themself, btw), I was obviously very curious about them. Good to know take atleast one person believes the Empryean is in another. Hope...

    RAI Penta -- Meze Audio's Flagship IEM with Penta Hybrid Driver Technology

    So I'm led to understand (never heard any of Meze's line myself outside of Empyrean). If the Rai manages to fall somewhere in the middle of the Meze house sound and the Zeus-R, that would probably hit the sweet spot.

    RAI Penta -- Meze Audio's Flagship IEM with Penta Hybrid Driver Technology

    Interesting. I suppose that could be a good thing. No real reason why they would need to share the same sound. Will be looking out for anyone's first impressions.

    Meze EMPYREAN - the First Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone

    I've got pretty big ears and the Empyrean is plenty big and comfy. I usually have fit issues with most. Not these.

    Meze EMPYREAN - the First Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone

    Just dropping in to say the Empyrean even sounds awesome from a meager LG V30. And, prefer the alcantara pads. Better balanced sound over the leather, which condenses the soundstage somewhat and pushes the midrange forward. From the sound to the aesthetics, the awesome case and overall build...

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    Haven't heard the Phantom. CTM Jokoma (copper 8 wire) works very well with the Zeus R. Expands instrument separation and soundstage in comparison to the Aries II. CTM Okol (silver 8 wire), brightens it too much. Better with Legend X. Tames the bass a bit. CTM Juba (hybrid 8 wire) splits the...
