    Monolith M1060C Closed Back Planar Headphones impressions

    It's been a minute since I've sold them but I can probably sell you a set if you need them

    Not really, the sound signature's pretty different

    Schiit Fulla 2 Impressions Thread

    FWIW I have played around with blocking off the power pins from the data USB cable and running the second power input from a separate power supply. My computer's USB ports are quite noisy and this was reflected in the variable output I have which connects to speakers. It surprisingly helped a...

    Schiit Fulla 2 Impressions Thread

    You can just run it off with a single usb for the majority of devices. There is no difference in power output. It is an optional extra power input for when you're connecting the fulla 2 to portable devices which limit their usb output power.

    New release - the AKG K553 Pro - featuring a killer Massdrop deal

    As others have stated, the sound stage on these headphones is quite small. However, the imaging is great and incredibly accurate. Regarding pads, I can't recommend brainwavz pads as they are too thick and put the driver far away from your ear, killing what little bass response these cans have...

    Philips SHP9500 Discussion Thread

    There aren't any fake SHP9500s as far as I know. Other people have ordered 9500s of aliexpress without issue, so you'll probably be fine.

    A powered usb hub would be a better bet than the jitterbug imo and cheaper too.

    Monolith M1060C Closed Back Planar Headphones impressions

    I didn't want to take a hammer to my headband to get the pins out so I 3D printed some pins. Seems pretty good so far, we'll see how it holds up.

    Monoprice Monolith M1060 and M560 Planar Headphones

    Alright, so basically use more force on the pin and hammer it out. I'll try that next time around. I ended up reassembling everything just to play it safe. Hopefully mine aren't welded shut or anything lol. Actually, is there a groove for the second eclip on your m1060s? Or do the pins look...

    Monoprice Monolith M1060 and M560 Planar Headphones

    Hi guys, just got my headband in today but I'm having trouble putting it on my M1060C. I removed the eclips(just one per joint) and removed the headband. The joint has a plastic sleeve on it, leaving me with the peg which seems quite secured onto the headband. Any ideas on how to remove the...

    Monolith M1060C Closed Back Planar Headphones impressions

    It doesn't need to be that flat. Just scrape around the circle and try to get some loose plastic gunk out so that the screws will reach through. I should probably look into fixing that...eventually. Also sorry for the missed messages, as I've been busy at uni recently. I sadly am still not...

    Monolith M1060C Closed Back Planar Headphones impressions

    I pretty much only lurk nowadays. I can draw up other designs for sure if people really want them, but I got tired of babysitting my 3D printer since the thing really needs to be scrapped and rebuilt someday.

    Magni 3 Impressions

    Basically has inputs other than USB. Can be powered by a seperate USB port.

    The monoprice 1/4" adapter is pretty garbo. I recommend the UGreen ones on Amazon, since they also work with TRRS connectors intended for android + mic.

    Magni 3 Impressions

    I believe the Magni 3 uses an AC-AC adapter, not an AC-DC 9V. So yeah, it's unlikely you'll find anything like that laying around. Which means please don't plug random power adapters into the Magni 3 lol.

    Monolith M1060C Closed Back Planar Headphones impressions

    Eh I'd doubt it. QC probably still isn't the greatest since the drivers come from China. RMA took a little over a week for me. At least they paid for shipping both ways, so no complaints from me.

    Monolith M1060C Closed Back Planar Headphones impressions

    Yeah get that RMA'd. A semi-common defect, at least for the earlier units. My second unit has been flawless for...over half a year now?

    Creative Super X-Fi headphone holography

    I am in the lucky position to have obtained the SXFI amp and the bundled Aurvana Live SE. Sadly I'll have to wait until the US release of the app before giving it a full go. Quick thoughts: - Pretty nice aluminum build with clicky buttons. - Powered HD 6XXs in stereo mode to well above...

    Schiit Fulla 2 Impressions Thread

    Modi 3 is much better performing than the Modi 2 and 2 Uber. Otherwise if you have a use for the other features of the Fulla 2, I think the Fulla 2 would work okay.

    SF South Bay Meet - Saturday, November 3, 2018 Impressions

    Didn't take too many pictures, but here are two which look okay. The table was quite full. Cleers look great! I'll be sure to write impressions and my review of the Periodic Audio Ti later this week. Thanks again @jazzfan for organizing the event and @DanWiggins and @CEE TEE for the support!

    If you didn't look ridiculous enough wearing M1060s, well there's a solution... haha.
