    The Brise Audio Japan Cable Thread

    Wait, which cable? They clearly do have pictures of their earphone cables with right angled plugs. I'd just think it'll depend on how many wires you go for - i.e. Yatono Ultimate 8-Wire with large gauge may be difficult do that on a L-type plug, but Yatono Ultimate can have right angled plugs.

    Stax SR-X9000

    I don't have the x9000 nor do I have the BHSE. I have the SR-009, used to own the SRM-727 and now have the Electra. I've also borrowed @arnaud's and listened to the BHSE for a few weeks. It's been many years now but at least in my experience with the aforementioned headphones/amps, but at least...

    The Brise Audio Japan Cable Thread

    Probably best to go through whoever you bought it through ( assuming you bought it new - I don't know what the policy is for used). I've not had anything repaired before (but I did ask them to change connectors as I repurposed my cable for a different pair of headphones) but I believe they...

    Vintage 70s or 80s full sized headphones recommendations?

    Thanks for the suggestions folks. Will convey the message and keep an eye on both the aforementioned AKG & Sennheiser models. I don't know the full parameters around the interest in the vintage 70s/80s headphones but I gather it's part nostalgia, aesthetics, and probably sound would be a factor...

    Vintage 70s or 80s full sized headphones recommendations?

    Thx for your response richard51. I didn’t realise the K240 had been around that long. You’ve provided a lot of info for further digging! I’ll convey the message to my friend.

    Vintage 70s or 80s full sized headphones recommendations?

    Asking this on behalf of a friend, does anyone know of vintage 70s or 80s full sized cans they would recommend? In addition to that, aside from the obvious eBay, know of any places where where they can be sourced?

    Pictures of Your Portable Rig (part XVI)

    V-Moda I hear you say? No it's a V-Modex by Armaegis which I picked up from Maxx134 9 years back. Still have this in my headphone stash after all these years. The power of the Woo Audio WA11 Topaz drives this well.

    Sony WH-1000XM5 Wireless Noise Cancelling

    I’m at the airport and they had 1x XM5 left. I was very tempted to buy but I haven’t (yet? - 50 mins to flight :D). Picking it up in my hand, felt rather plasticky but I appreciated the weight and comfort in comparison to my Airpods Max. They really do feel very much lighter and much more...

    Cypher Labs AlgoRhythm Solo - Discussion and Impressions Thread

    That is very strange as my iPhone 12 Pro Max (iOS 14.7.1 still) is working with the original Cypherlabs Algorhythm Solo from 2011, as well as the Solo -dB. Both CLAS worked with my iPhone X and iPhone 7 too (and presumably with my iPhone 6 which I'm sure I've tested in the past but that's going...

    No, but I'm nostalgic. And I have a lot of cables 30-pin LO for it too!

    Woo Audio WA8 Review - Head-Fi TV

    There's a chap in Japan's Yahoo Auction that has a variety of tubes for the WA8 that's all ready for plug 'n play. I think it goes without saying that try at your own risk and I'm guessing that if anything goes wrong with your WA8, don't expect any warranty to be honoured in this case.

    Unexpected background noise recorded onto music - What have you heard recently?

    Necroposting my own thread here. So on The Bangles' Greatest Hits Eternal Flame (Track 10) at around 03:28-03:30, there's "something" that like a stack of books or horse hoofs that's trotting from the right to the left channel. It's bugging that I can't work out what it is!!

    What pair of headphones do you regret selling the most?

    I have to say it's my Fostex TH-900, I actually regret letting this go much more than the Focal Utopia's. Many years later, I have the Stax SR-009 and Hifiman Susvaras which are more desktop-level headphones, or the V-Moda Crossfades and Dali iO-6 which are my fun headphones. Would have been...

    Eddie Current Zana Deux owners

    Hi @streamline I have to say I don't remember. Going by memory, I had the original Zana Deux which did not have a switch. I enquired with Craig Uthus about how to make it into the ZDSE and found a local modder in Japan who could tweak it based on some instructions I got from Craig. So AFAIK it...
