    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    Replacement unit from the dealer or from the manufacturer, is based on national laws of the country. For example in germany, it is the dealer first you have to contact and ask for a replacement; not mandatory for the manufacturer to provide a replacement unit. If it was only the paint damage...

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    Luckily my model is overall fine, regarding build quality. A model from around may, with the longer hinge. It does squeak a little bit when moving the cups and the right cup could be cushioned a bit more even. They still haven't replaced the stiff cable making microphonics? Will be interesting...

    Likely less distortions in that measurents because audio level is not cranked up to the max. For 99 % of the listeners the distortion should be absolutely unhearable. Your measurements also shows no such heights in the 600 - 900 Hz region. Only a bit. As explained above, that sudden change in...

    I manually tweaked and compared Oratory's peq with the one preliminary frequency graph from Judes here on head-fi and amirms. Tweaked and compared for 4 hours, listening to the differences. What displeases me personally, that with my model, simply by applying amirms P-EQ, it completely changes...

    That change must be do to audio level he applied. He basically applies +5 dB < 100 Hz to almost every headphone, be it a dynamic driver, ribbon, planar or AMT. Everyone knows the bass regions of the heddphone sound very different to that of a dynamic driver. Even when the graph in that area...

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    Just search for some Programs on the apple store. Pairing the heddphone with an smartphone? Well ;) I'd recommend trying it first out with a proper amplification and something like APO + peace equalizer, to make changes on the fly and turning it off/on consecutively. The heddphone has no...

    DIY Cable Questions and Comments Thread

    Hello everyone ;) I soldered some simple speaker cables some time ago, now I want some headphone cable. A few quetions: I'm unsure between taking the neotech stdct 24 awg or the NECE-/NECH-3001. All of them only use teflon- or pvc-insulation. Is that a problem in 99 % of the use cases...

    No problemo :relieved: So you listened for a longer period now? Try using the equalizer, you will see the AMT driver does really well with that and can go even deeper. I have not listed to those woo 5k € amplifiers, but I don't think a totl-product needs to cost that much any longer; especially...

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    Really, the Focal clear? For the more enjoying-like music and movie presentation I guess? I personally like the rumbling bass of the planar and the amt transducer more for movies^^ Though I haven't listened to the zmf lineup yet. It is different from the heddphone, Clear compared to the Utopia a...

    Thanks Rayzilla :thumbsup: So putting this headband under the normal headband? I think they cushioning of the headband is very fine, but it would be better distributing the weight if it were a bit wider, for more contact surface. This headband does exactly that? General: Tonal differences...

    Most honored and valued Sir Knight pataburd , no, I'm actually joking. No need to be sooo formal ^^ (i) Well, that is common knowledge as it is known by likely everyone who is mix & mastering music, or even laymen as me. The talk about that was starting (and ongoing) even in this thread, or...

    @youkeum Dividing the audio signal? Yes, the burn-in is real with those. Every headphone I tried so far, dynamic, planar or amt had noticeably changes after some burn-in. This is no phenomenon of bias, brain-trickery or the brain adjusts to the sound etc. I focused very much to net get tricked...

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    Looks like everyone needs a balanced cable for this headphone, xlr or trs and a lot of juice^^ What amplifier exactly for $ 300? Yep, and still they sell it only for 1700 €/$ 1900 as compared to the 3 - 5k other headphones. A small manufacturer in Europe, with higher costs as a for example in...

    SMSL M400 is coming around at a concessional rate! ---MQA DAC AK4499 Full Balanced aptX-HD Bluetooth5.0

    About the quality of the components: Would need an expert open them both and analyze the components. The measurement reviews on asr and other websites are a nice start and helpful, but don't tell complete unvarnished truth. Some things can't be measured with equipment and some forums members are...

    Or from one power outlet too? With that kind of equipment it makes sense! What about the quality of the power grid, outlet, noise, power surges. Living here in germany I've never had any problem with this kind of things and the quality is high. No problems = no need of such device? Or it is...

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    Maybe trying such things next live, being a millionaire, with equipment that cost x times the headphone itself, when 99% diminishing returns do not matter to me :smile: You mentioned it changes the way luxury $ 5k + equipment (big power amps) plays, so I guess equipment for 500 - 1000 will not...

    If your ego is shaken that hard right now and you're emotionally that upset, can't handle what others say, thus leading to such unnecessary derogatory comments "TL;DR. Please shut up.", then please shut up and move on yourself. You clearly have not understood what a forum is about - so move on...

    @Precogvision That is an accurate description of some of the reasons one reads reviews etc ;) You're pointing out the "extreme-thing" - both extremum. I'm not one of the hype trainers or the haters and most of the listeners of this heddphone or reviewing it by commenting it etc. aren't either...

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    Hmmm, yes, seem to be quite some different descriptions of the heddphone. I understand tonereefs side, the subjective and what he is looking for in a headphone, also his ears are not that good and the amp pairing could not be optimal, but at the end, some of the descriptions describe simply...

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    Yes, subjective, psychoacoustics and what everyone focuses on when listening. I read some write the stax sr-007 mk2 omega 2 really has not that much of a transducer resolution and perceived detail. But, well, no, it does. It is just the difference tonality etc. which makes it have lot less...

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    Good you replied and explained things :ok_hand: I've not heard the heddphone on a tube-amp; based on others comments it indeed does make a noticeable difference and solid state amps are said to be a better pairing to display the heddphones ability in resolution, perceived detail and...

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    Thanks for the impression, much appreciated. I think the culprit is probably the amp/dac. I heard both (the sr-009s, Mk Omega2 and lamba 700 Mk2, with a 1000 - 3000 € energizer and the heddphone with low quality and enthusiast amp/dac) and I can say this choice of word " run circles around" is...

    From 0 to pi? I'm not that good in math to calculate a specific circle line of a sphere :sweat_smile: But remembering how it fit me, I say an additional 1 cm on each side, depending on head shape and ears, could fit easily up to head circumference of 67+ cm.
