    E-MU Wooden Series Headphones

    Just got the teaks from drop yesterday, so far so good. I used to have a d5000 until its cable broke, but these teaks seem way better built by comparison. just sturdier and smoother overall. also the sound is much more refined overall. The only thing that I'm curious about is that these new...

    iFi Audio Nano iDSD discussion + impression

    Just got the Nano today, plugged it into the macbook, and the LED color is like a white/magenta (if looking at it from below its white, if from above its magenta). This is just playing youtube, so is this the new default color for pcm? I see there have been firmware updates over time, so I...

    Fir Audio Thread - Discussion and Impressions

    Wow, thanks for that impression! That helped clear up some of my concerns about the bass on the m4. I'm not a basshead, I actually like neutral bass tunings generally, as long as its full and weighted rather than thin and brittle. For example bass on my alpha prime is great, but bass on an hd800...

    Fir Audio Thread - Discussion and Impressions

    So I was looking at 64 audio A12ts for a while now as a change of setup after I sell my current one. I managed to stumble across FiR audio after some people mentioned the atom modules, and now I'm buying into the hype after learning everything about FiR. Looks really promising to me, but since...

    The Official 64 Audio Thread | apex & tia Technologies

    Tl;dr - A12t vs zmf Auteur, dont have experience with high end iem, do have with high end over ears. Need help picking the one solution that will last me years, and can be used for hours everyday. Ideally I need comparison information, rather than just telling me to buy one or the other. I need...

    MRSPEAKERS ALPHADOG OR PRIME

    I have an original alpha prime in black, as well as a norne audio cable for them. Was going to list them next week once I get the pics edited. I am also in California so shipping isnt too bad lol. What price were you willing to pay for them? mind you I was going to list them a tad bit higher...

    ZMF Auteur Thread

    Yeah I expected the verite to be faster overall no matter what, but at that price point we're talking about one notch up in headphone perfirmance overall from other brands too. I just try to get the best I can within that 1600 dollar price point. I prefer solid state overall, so tubes...

    ZMF Auteur Thread

    Thats good to know, hearing is so subjective sometimes its tough to know to what extent one person hears something over someone else. Thats why I like asking a lot of specific questions and see what the general response is. Anyways thanks for the help again! Time to look up some auteur vs...

    ZMF Auteur Thread

    I was replying to the other user about the verite, since he suggested it is much faster than the auteur and thus much better suited for metal genres. Sorry if that got mixed up in my quote replies. I do enjoy my detail, but not at the sacrifice of overall enjoyment. I like a warm tilt or at...

    ZMF Auteur Thread

    I have read this in a few places, but since the verite is just too far outside my budget I can't really include it as an option. Alternatively there is also the ether c 1.1 as an option? But I dont know how that compares to zmf. Yeah I was worried the aeolus would be too close to lcd 2 for me...

    ZMF Auteur Thread

    Tldr; I'd love to come away knowing: auteur or aeolus? cocobolo or maple/do they matter that much? How my music examples (Periphery and Phaeleh) sound on both, and ideally compared to the alpha primes. Thanks for reading my long winded way of asking one sentence worth of questions lol. More...

    Headphones for metal music - ultimate solution

    Yeah after doing some more research and also finding the frequency response graphs for both and alphas and the zmf lineup, its obvious to me that the auteur is exactly what I'm looking for. It really solidified my choice honestly, as did your input. I feel like thats a solid headphone I can use...

    Headphones for metal music - ultimate solution

    I will be getting a new amp entirely for either headphone choice. Basically selling of my current setup and reallocating that money towards the new setup, so if i go auteurs then slightly less expensive amp, if I go aeolus pricier amp. In the long run I'll upgrade everything regardless, but for...

    Headphones for metal music - ultimate solution

    Gotcha, as far as I can tell the bifrost uber is relatively neutral. Its flaws are more to do with detail than with warmth/neutral/bright. It basically does its job without imparting any color really or getting in the way too much. If you had very detail sensitive headphones, thats where it wont...

    Headphones for metal music - ultimate solution

    Thanks for the input! Yeah my equipment wont be as high end as yours, so I'm taking that into account. I'm also not that sensitive to bright or harsh sounds, but many hours a day over multiple years got pretty fatiguing eventually. Really as long as its easier on the ears than the alpha primes...

    Headphones for metal music - ultimate solution

    Yeah I will be buying a new amp, dont worry haha. Wont be as high end this time though, but I would rather put the money priority towards the nice headphone this time and less towards the super nice amp (for now). Overall I think I'm leaning auteur, mainly because of its seemingly good...

    Headphones for metal music - ultimate solution

    Hey guys, I've been out of the forum for a bit just content with my setup until recently. Basically my alpha primes are just not the most comfortable to wear for my head (its the lack of earcup tilt of all things, and its sound signature while great has gotten more and more fatiguing over the...

    MrSpeakers Alpha PRIME: Impressions and Discussion Thread

    I'm using the bifrost uber, and it's using the same output stage and dac chip as the gungnir, so they wont be all that different in sound aside from the gungnir having 4v output instead 2v because it's fully balanced. So getting either one is up to you, and how much you wanna go balanced/save or...

    MrSpeakers Alpha PRIME: Impressions and Discussion Thread

    depends if you consider the old Denon line (d2000, d5000, d7000) similar to the TH line. I have used the d5000 for years now, but have not ever heard the TH line aside from one website that tried to record it as an attempt to show how it sounds (obviously it's not the same as actually listening...

    MrSpeakers Alpha PRIME: Impressions and Discussion Thread

    Yea thats why i dont feel any need to mess with things right now. I just know one day in the future i might get curious or maybe even slightly worn out by how they sound stock, and just use the tuning guide to change them up a bit. Could be a cool way to kinda refresh their sound, and then just...

    MrSpeakers Alpha PRIME: Impressions and Discussion Thread

    I look forward to that tuning guide, even though I dont really feel the need to change how they sound right now lol. Still good to have on hand.   Also just another quick cable suggestion since a bunch were mentioned above, the new Norne Solv cable is a really great match with the primes. And...

    Norne Audio (Was: Norse Audio): Feedback & Impression Thread

    just got the Solv for my Alpha Prime today, so far everything has been great with it. It's a bit smaller in diameter than I thought it would be, but who cares, because it's built beautifully, super extra lightweight, the new Eidolic TeCu connector is really awesome, and of course the sound...
