    Final Audio D8000 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    I've never heard the original D8000. They seem to be pretty hard to find now.

    Headphone Tube Amps - The hunt for all 300B TUBE AMPS

    So far I am really enjoying it. The only thing I'm disliking is how light the bass is with the stock tubes. I did swap the input tubes which really helpd a lot. Just need to get something better than the cheapest PSVANE 300b you can get. I mean, I went from a sub $100 SMSL amp to the Kaiju...

    The filament supply on the Kaiju is AC. It can be upgraded to DC. I haven't don that yet. Elrog doesn't recommend using an AC filament supply for the Elrog.

    Final Audio D8000 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    I've been really enjoying the Bottlehead Mainline and the TorBalanced. Both sound great with the D8000pro. Get the Tor if you want to tube swap. Get the mainline if you don't want to tube swap.

    I've never had problems with the Rognir reproducing any of my wide variety of music.

    That is true. I sadly don't own the memory foam ecl-01 pads, the stock ones. I really like the ecl-02 mf on them.It isn't as warm as the 3 but still adds affair bit more bass and energy. Also on mobile so I can't really do a good write up on the differences between the pads sound.

    I would make sure to get at least the ECL-03 pads for the Rognir and possibly the memory foam ECL-02 pads.

    What he said. Though I find the D8000pro to be a lot warmer than the RP. Also found the D8p to be a more laid back welcoming sound compared to the raw energy of the Rognir.

    I wish I could get both but a of right now I can't afford either. This is going to be a "future" purchase. I will have to deal with the super cheap, and terrible, PSVANE tubes for a while.

    Thank you for the information. I am running a Bottlehead Kaiju. Which is really gentle on 300Bs, part of why I bought it. How would you say the Acme compares to the WE300B, Tak, and standard ER300B? I see you can occasionally, rarely, find all 3 for right around $1000 used.

    I've noticed that my D8000 Pros sound signautre has changed since I first got them. The highs seems to have mellowed out and the bass has really come forward on them. they went from being slightly bright to pretty warm and bassy headphones. Did anyone else notice that with the D800 Pro?

    My amp didn't even cost $2000, since it was on sale.

    It really seems like crinacle really likes super boring neutral headphones.

    Looks like they have the 300B/SE, 300B/CNE, 300B/c, 300B/n, 300B/c/+ and the 300B. The 300B/c, 300B/SE, and the 300B/CNE look identical to the Sophia Carbon Plate 300b and the Royal Prince 300B, respectively.

    I messaged Kennerton about the HP-Diamond. "The HP-Diamond were tuned as hedphone set of its own. However, if comparing to the range of Kennerton, I would say it stands more closer to the Kennerton Thekk. Also keep in mind, those have different membraine drivers, Thekk has carbon, and...

    So, are the Elrog Tubes considered the be-all-end-all of 300B tubes for this thread?
