    Any interest in doing a local head-fi small gathering in SF?

    We could find a rent out a library space (free and definitely has outlets for amps etc. I know some of the libraries in my area (Walnut Creek) are nice, but not familiar with the options in the city.

    Why the Beats Hate?

        Forgot about that. I do expect apple will release a better product, but I doubt it will be to the same level as a dedicated audio company. I don't expect the beats to have anymore increased durability. Apple is the king of planned obsolescence.

    Campfire Audio - Introducing 2 new models Hello Andromeda and Nova

    I'll just leave this here... ;)     Not my headphones, but I really like how the Eidolic pins match up with the matte aluminum shells. Also the silver plated wire doesn't hurt either.

    What wire gauge to use when making cables for IEMS?

    Tips from a pro. 26 AWG 1mm OD is good enough for almost every headphone I got my hands on. but if you're working on Etymotic's you might have to get some 32 AWG litz which is really no better than a stock wire. Good luck!

    Bose QC35 Wireless Noise-Cancelling Headphones

    I actually had a pair of these on my desk about 2 weeks ago. Really surprised at how well the canceled out noise. I've never dealt with active canceling before. Also figured out that this little gem lets you use aftermarket cables.  ...

    Grado sunflower pad mod

    This could also help with debris on the driver. I've seen a lot of that on the grado headphones which can attribute to buzzing. Not sure how acoustically transparent that is though. I feel like the foam in front of the driver could cut out the treble that Grado's are famous for.

    Q Cable Impressions Thread

      Thanks Arb233! I've heard the stock cables being described as "garden hoses" before. I couldn't imagine why a $2000 headphone would come with a garden hose for a cable. ;)

    Q Cable Impressions Thread

    Thats a long time! I think Steve and I have changed quite a few aesthetic things about the cables since then, but glad to hear the design is still holding up!
