    HE60 with rock and metal?

    I'm considering getting a Sennheiser HE60 with HEV70. To afford this, I would unfortunately have to get rid of all my other headphones. I listen to a lot of genres, but about 75% is rock and metal. So, is it worth it to get the HE60 instead of RS1 and AD2000 for rock and metal? EDIT: There...

    Salvage old electronic parts

    I was hunting for some heatsinks and had an old CRT computer screen in which I found some. Now the question is, what else should I salvage? The screen was made 1998, so rather old. Should I desolder caps, resistors, transistors? Are there any electronic parts that old worth keeping? What else...

    Best way to mod 414 yellowpads for MS2i?

    I have a pair of Sennheiser 414 yellow pads and want to make them fit my MS2i. How should I mod them for best sound with the ms2i? Regular or reversed? Large hole or small hole? From what I can see, if I use them reversed they will cover the outer part of the driver. I don't think this would...

    H5 left channel "scratching"

    I have had my h5 for a long while now, and for maybe half of that time, the left channel have had some "scratching". It sounds like a buzz but only for a short while (less than a second) at the time, but it continues irregularly. It buzzes even tho the amp is not plugged in to a source and it...
