    Quote:     Obviously a problem somewhere in the chain, and not a problem with the amp itself.   Your first hint should have been when you plugged into a system with an extremely well reviewed, high-priced amp that you had every reason to expect would make any pair of headphones...

    Any old fart head-fi'ers still around?

    I still belly up to the bar for a beer every now and then.  Lots of new kids in town, but it's the same old neighborhood.     The place where you grew up will always fell like home no matter how much it may have changed.  You just have to look around for a while, and you'll be bound to find...

    Larry at Headphile is selling a "like new" condition Sennheiser HE90 that the going rate?

    Quote: Funny you should say that, because I'm in that market at the moment as well.  I've got an '08 Monster S4RS Tricolore that I keep in the US, but that big beast scares the crap out of me.  So I'm thinking about getting a lesser powered, but still pretty powerful, Ducati to bring to...

    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    Quote: I think you've named yourself correctly, headphone addict.  With all of the high end headphones you have, you're worried that if you sold one it would leave you with a "hole" in your lineup!  Too funny.

    Official: New York Area Meet, Nov 20, White Plains, NY

      I'll probably be square, although there is actually a chance that I'll be in New York that week, in which case I'll be there.     Not sure if that trip will happen in November or December, and unfortunately I don't control the timing of it.  At the moment, it looks like December but...

    Ultrasone Edition 10 announced!

    Quote:  Chances are pretty good that it's just poor artwork.  Can't imagine the folks at Ultrasone haven't yet figured out the difference between open and closed.  Wonder if there's a Wiki we can refer them to, just in case.

    DIY Charity Raffle - Twisted Pear Ventus

    Great idea, Nate, and a wonderful gesture as a friend, and particularly as not a particularly good friend of Zach's dad (although I suspect that may change soon).  PM sent.

    Pinpointing custom IEM "fit" issues

    This was a long time ago, and there is more to the story now.  I think the answer is no.  I'm not sure though.  I gave my UE-10s to a UE rep (who no longer works for the company at this point) who as in attendance and working at their table at the San Jose CanJam.  I didn't get his name at the...

    Ultrasone Edition 10 announced!

    Quote: I know that this is probably a strange thing to say at a headphone forum, but it would just seems dorky (to me) to wear a t-shirt like that.  Maybe because it's product specific.  I like the AKG t-shirt that someone gave me at one of the CanJams (can't remember which one), and I've...

    Ultrasone Edition 10 announced!

    Interesting thread.  I just now stumbled across it.     I quite like the look of the E10, and although I know that the looks add significantly to the price that they figure they can gouge me with, they're probably a lot wiser than I am.  Why?  Because if the E10 sound as good as they (and...

    Quote: Not really controversial.  It's just that it's been done ten million times.     Oops, I mean ten million and one.

    HD800 and T1 too similar to keep both?

    Yes, you need more headphones.  Get them all and be happy.

    REVIEW: Audez’e LCD-2 Planar Magnetic Headphones

    Thanks for the well balanced review, Rob.  It was nice meeting you at CanJam as well.     I've been thinking about getting a pair of these puppies, and should have given them more head time when I had the chance.     Given that I've got such a huge noggin, the comfort issue may well play...

    My one headphone to rule them all (LCD2, 007MKII, ED8, T1, JH-16)?

    You have to listen for yourself. That's all there is to it, really.

    Banning Policy

    The system wouldn't allow us to set up accounts this way, but even if it did, it would be kind of pointless. Just human nature, but the fact is that almost everyone becomes sorry for what they do after they get caught and are then facing the consequences of their actions. So most apologies at...

    Beyerdynamic T1 vs Sennheiser HD800 (with poll)

    I own both, and like both very much, but haven't listened to either of them enough to have drawn any firm conclusions, so I haven't voted yet. Just got the T1's recently and haven't heard them on my home sources and amps yet. I'll be on the road until the end of August and have the T1's with...

    How old are you?

    47, so almost in the >50 and therefore irrelevant category.
