    Not redundant at all. Completely different presentations of music, they only overlap in their technical abilities such as large sound stage, detail retrieval, imaging, layering.

    @skhan007 . You can drive both fine at your desired listening volumes. Susvara just a slight bit more difficult. But honestly you can drive both to whatever listening volume you want with much lesser gear, but you’ll never know the potential you’re missing out on until you hear it adequately...

    What’re you even asking about? This is as vague as it gets. Technicality? Presentation? Ergonomics? Costs/performance? Requirements? They have 2 Different presentations of sound so that part is personal preference

    Even the WA33 non-elite is really good with Susvara. Btw, one of your old posts is the reason why I passed on Susvara for a while, ironic we both end up here 😂

    Hemoptysis is so subjective, and of course pneumonia can cause it. Do you know how many times I’ve heard hemoptysis and it’s just a few specks of blood in the sputum from coughing? I’m not even an ER, pulm, or family doc

    The Hardest hitting Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club")

    Wow, nice post, definitely appreciate the summary and brief history lesson of some bass head headphones. I can confirm the Massdrop x Fostex series is also very good. It’s as if they refined the original D7000 but kept all the good traits including the hard hitting bass.

    The Hardest hitting Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club")

    Denon D7000 (sounds better than 7200), but d7200 with EQ works (treble is rolled off), the D9200 are excellent, Fostex TH-900 mk2 also excellent. Focal Utopia 2022 are significantly better than Stellia.

    These have decent punch, but Denon, Fostex, and abyss 1266 all hit harder, are more energetic, and sound better IMO

    I might be selling my D8000 Pro LE soon. I really wanted to compare them with the Caldera but may not get a chance to do that before I sell

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

    Honestly the ergonomics of the 1266 and the stock cable are abysmal 😜. Its actually why I prefer to use the Susvara more often

    CanJam works well, you have audio enthusiasts of all levels. If you’re gonna detect a difference, you’d better get one from this population

    This is the point of blind controlled studies and double blind is the people conducting the research also don’t know which one the subjects are getting

    Creative SXFI or other VSS for competitive FPS games, yay or nay?

    What do you guys prefer for competitive FPS games like CS2? SXFi? SXFi Battle Mode? Scout mode? Or all off? Are HD800S still the king of competitive FPS gaming? Anyone ever compare them to the Denon D7000 for gaming?

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

    Appreciate all you guys faithful to the solo headphones, but I miss my dynamic bass side piece so I choose to switch it up 😜 Also there is something to be said about how well the Sus works for a cleaner presentation of female vocals, edm, and certain rock genres (faster complicated tracks)...

    Agree, would be pretty easy to do a double blind placebo / sham randomized controlled trial… but who would do it for headphone cables? 😂. I guess maybe a big manufacturer like audioquest would have the time and resources to do something like this.

    I’m using spring3 kte with Bliss and Susvara, but yes I’m at the exact same -10, will increase up to -4 max. Don’t have any recordings that go to + range

    Don’t really get why you’re dramatizing these discussions or even annoyed. There is some truth to high cost cables generally sonically being better than budget ones, but I think overwhelmingly people acknowledge it’s mostly about synergy. Nobody ever said not to roll pads or EQ 🤔 the discussion...

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

    I hear it too, the lowest Subbass is rolled off, and I agree it’s due to the loose fitting broken seal. People have disagreed with me in the past as well and said it was my gear. It’s not, the Sus, th900 mk2, and heck even DCA Expanse extends lower than TC. But other than TH900 mk2, nothing...

    I think this is generally true with all cables, it’s not just about $$$, it’s about synergy. As I test the Forza Claire HPC vs DHC Chimera for Susvara, I’m seeing pros and cons of both but don’t want to conclude anything yet since I’ve only compared the 2 a few times.

    Sorry to burst your bubble but I was the same as you, I refused to believe a USB cable could make a difference… I was wrong. I tried an Amazon $10 USB cable from my streamer to DAC and swapped it for a $150 Neotech one and it was a noticeable difference. I turned down the digital volume on the...

    How is the LCD-4 in comparison to Sus and TC?

    I own the D8K Pro LE but haven’t heard any other versions. The D8K Pro LE is very interesting and there is a special place for it alongside the Susvara and 1266 TC. It is definitely more similar to the Susvara than the TC. However, it stands on its own in that the mids are better than the...
