    Audeze LCD-X

    They're accurate. The good the bad and the ugly all gets pumped into your ear holes mercilessly. It's a good idea to listen to a lot of recordings that you aren't familiar with to get your bearings. Mastering jobs that are loud are grating are completely offensive to the ears and will cause...

    Audeze LCD-X

    I would say that there's no need to keep a spare set on hand at all. I've had mine since early 2021 and no signs of needing a new set anytime soon. I would describe the condition of the pads as "broken in" rather than showing wear. The only issue I had was that the leather got dried out the...

    Rupert Neve Designs Announces The RNHP: Precision Headphone Amplifier

    Thanks. That is a great detailed description. I haven't heard those amps and wanted to know the differences. I am also curious if the soundstage widths are sometimes intentional for something made for audio engineering to make the imaging more precise and audiophile amps might make it wider for...

    Rupert Neve Designs Announces The RNHP: Precision Headphone Amplifier

    What is your perception of the strength of the stereo image of the Asgard and Burson vs the RNHP? Is it just as defined or slightly more diffuse? What about the strength of the center of the image?

    Rupert Neve Designs Announces The RNHP: Precision Headphone Amplifier

    No problem! I am here to put my own experience forward. I am trying to understand your rig. I might not completely get what you are doing. After googling what gear you have, I would actually think that the NAD as a DAC via XLR->RNHP would be the best configuration that you could run for a...

    Rupert Neve Designs Announces The RNHP: Precision Headphone Amplifier

    If you are not liking it, the power supply probably won't give a radical enough of a change to change that. My impression of the RNHP is that it is really accurate. It was made for audio engineering and it is mercilessly precise like it says on the front in a really good way when the recording...

    The New HD 560S: Linear Acoustics at a Breakthrough Value

    I bought a pair of these used for $120. The treble peaks are intense. I find them unlistenable without eq. After eq they improve a lot. Very impressive detail and imaging. However, I find that in exchange for all of that detail and imaging the way these present certain textures is quite...

    Audeze MM-100

    I don't see how changing the pads would pressurize the diaphragm as long as you press around the edges. If you put your palm on the center of the pad to make a seal and then pressed down like you were trying to operate a toilet plunger then yes. The things that should be avoided with planars...

    Audeze MM-100

    That is completely unrelated to changing the pads.

    Audeze MM-100

    Those have aluminum yokes and a steel headband which is similar to the MM-100. After seeing both of these in a row it looks like Audeze is done with the plastic. That's what I am getting at. Before that came the LCD-1 and the previous gaming headsets. My LCD-1 developed hairline cracks from...

    Audeze MM-100

    From the specs and looking at the design these have the potential to be Audeze's best headphone yet for a lot of people because of the down to earth weight(the unconfirmed weight), a down to earth price and the aluminum/steel/magnesium build. Adjustable headband. That is a good move too. If...

    Audeze LCD-X

    There's a bit of a language barrier, but I will try to cover everything. The metal screw on the bottom of the post is what holds the post on the bracket and the plastic or nylon screw on the top of the post is to keep the bracket from slipping all the way off when you adjust it all the way to...

    Rupert Neve Designs Announces The RNHP: Precision Headphone Amplifier

    As in 24/7 365? So I would take it that you noticed too! Another tip for anyone that it may concern. The volume pot becomes linear at around 10 o'clock. If you can adjust your gain staging so that your average listening level is right above that at least, you will have better imaging and L R...

    Rupert Neve Designs Announces The RNHP: Precision Headphone Amplifier

    If anyone wants to upgrade the sound of the RNHP for FREE you can increase the soundstage width, stereo imaging, detail, and dynamic impact by.... Letting it warm up for as long as possible before you listen to it. I have been testing this for a while now before I decided to say anything...

    Thanks for your response. I am going to explain why I am asking in a private message.

    Audeze LCD-X

    I really want to know what the curve of the LCD-2021 roon DSP is. I know it can be reverse engineered via a sweep and some loopback recording and measurement. But before I decide to learn what it takes to do all of that. Does anyone here already know how to do that or does anyone at @Audeze...

    Rode NTH-100 - Mini Review

    "They're non repairable." "We can't send you the part." They wanted me to send the entire headphone across the country to get a replacement where the defect in the very brittle plastic had not been addressed. I see that as a way to simply provide a solution that acts as a deterrent. Shipping...

    Rupert Neve Designs Announces The RNHP: Precision Headphone Amplifier

    I shaved them right before and applied some gold leaf for audiophile grade conductivity. We shouldn't doubt each other's subjective experiences. I have sound methodologies.

    Rupert Neve Designs Announces The RNHP: Precision Headphone Amplifier

    I found two 12 volt car batteries totalling 24v and connected them to both of my nipples with an old set of jumper cables while listening to the NEVE RNHP and now I can smell the color of sound. But seriously. I'm going to watch this space. If something reasonable in cost gives an upgrade, I'll...

    Audeze LCD-X

    I've used the LCD-X A LOT. For listening and production. The only time I have noticed a pressure type of sensation is when they are underpowered or when running a bass boost shelf over or around 5db on a bass heavy song, which is something I avoid. I run a 2db boost which makes it somewhat...

    Rode NTH-100 - Mini Review

    I bought them from Adorama. 30 day return period. I was just past that so they directed me to go through the manufacturer. No one I talked to took ownership of the fact that they were defective.

    Rode NTH-100 - Mini Review

    I talked to RODE and they offered to replace if I pay to ship my pair off to them at my cost, but I have been too busy. I'm going to make time to send them off soon. But I definitely got frustrated realizing the next pair could do the same thing. But I am an early adopter. If they made a...

    Rode NTH-100 - Mini Review

    Since I shared my positive experience with these. Here's an update: The locking mechanism broke. It actually happened only shortly after my last posts in this thread right after I got them. One day I grasped the earcups and lifted them off my ears just enough to remove them and it snapped...

    Audeze LCD-1

    I listed my LCD-1 on ebay to finally pass them along since I upgraded to the LCD-X. They've been just sitting in their case untouched for over a year. Looked at this thread and then I now realize that mine have a hairline crack in them, not a scratch. I had to revise my ad and probably need to...

    I am selling my LCD-1 for $200. I figured someone on headfi might like to get a chance at them because they are priced to sell. I haven't used them since I got my LCD-X. They are in good condition except a scratch or hairline crack in the plastic which I have taken a photo of with a macro lens...
