    Geek Pulse: Geek desktop DAC/AMP by Light Harmonics

    I have been told again and again by their representative that they are waiting on a response in regards to my problem from their office. I am essentially being told my $1000 DAC is not worth making an actual call, instead we wait on a response email for multiple months, even as I reach back out...

    Hifiman Sundara (HE400i upgraded, around $500)

    Very interesting, thanks for sharing that! I didn't know DEVA was also asymmetrical design. Since this is their big, new tech that they market, maybe Sundara is the last isodynamic they will produce, at least for a while. I think Sundara is actually isodynamic, if I understand some online...

    Did you mean Z7? don't think there is a V7, this may be affecting the attention this post gets. Edit: I was wrong, free bump

    Hifiman Sundara (HE400i upgraded, around $500)

    I am not asking if they are planar, I am asking if they are ISODYNAMIC as opposed to ORTHODYNAMIC and whether Sundara is ISODYNAMIC. I would not ask such an ignorant question as you are suggesting

    Hifiman Sundara (HE400i upgraded, around $500)

    So they are isodynamic? Not sure I get the "Yes. No..." thing. I am aware HFM is heavily involved with planars, but the rest of their current line is orthodynamic as opposed to isodynamic.

    Hifiman Sundara (HE400i upgraded, around $500)

    Hey guys, just came here to ask out of curiosity, is the Sundara isodynamic? I can see magnets on the outer driver side but haven't seen/found pics of the inner side. I'm wondering whether Hifiman is generally moving away from the isodynamic designs. also curious because earlier models measured...

    Geek Pulse: Geek desktop DAC/AMP by Light Harmonics

    Still no response as to the issues with my X infinity DAC. It seems to have some issue with the software, as the display shows "ovf dB" instead of "-33 dB" for an example of volume. The volume cannot be adjusted and it is so low it is just slightly audible. I basically have a useless box here...

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    +1 on the functionality of the Forza cables, I have them for my 400i (SMC connector), my Elear, and Oppo PM-3. Beautiful, flexible, basically nonexistent microphonics.

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    There is also a reflection off of the hard inner surface of the back of the earpad. You'll notice it is quite hard and unforgiving. Cover that as well and it'll be even better

    Geek Pulse: Geek desktop DAC/AMP by Light Harmonics

    attempted with a power-cycle, same issue persists. I wouldn't take to the forums without a power cycle. I can get the serial number, but I thought the firmware was identical for all Xinfinity in chassis 2.0

    Geek Pulse: Geek desktop DAC/AMP by Light Harmonics

    Haha, no problem. Better to laugh about it, right? Really have no idea if firmware can even save this but if anyone has it I'd be happy to give it a go. Unfortunately I don't think LHL is servicing units.

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    Yeah I think this is fair, but I've had mine modded so long I can't speak reliably to stock sound, however I don't feel like they changed massively. I feel the same way about my 700's, I love them, and I don't agree with the haters. HOWEVER I also get why they got such a bad rap, and...

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    400i are a gem, I feel much the same way. Apparently Sundara are very similar from a FR standpoint, almost identical, but has the thinner driver and more open grille. if you want more fun under 1200 I'd say maybe some pre-fazor LCDs would be a possibility. Personally I love the Elex (mine is...

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    I am using the mod as well, I think the most polarizing thing about the HD700 is obviously the treble. The headphone is similarly revealing with the mod, and resonances should be less present, I love the sound of these after the mod. To me these are probably in my top 2 headphones, and my stable...

    NEW Schiit Lyr 2: Impressions

    I just used generic black bakelite 9-pin sockets, can be bought online. If you're concerned about SQ you could also remove your tubes, look at the part Schiit uses on the PCB, and get those

    NEW Schiit Lyr 2: Impressions

    FWIW I use tube socket protectors since removing and swapping tubes with the given height makes tube removal a real chore, with the socket savers they stick out far enough to grasp and pull firmly. I would recommend getting some anyways, I can't image the SQ would take a hit, as they are just...

    = Hifiman “Fuzzor” Mod = (Driver backwave felt damping modification)

    I did something similar to the fuzzor mod with the old HE-400, though I used closed-cell foam for more high frequency absorption, it really did keep the treble from being as sharp.

    Focal Elear - Impressions Thread

    This is the maximum excursion problem the Elex was measured as having. I can push my Elear to at least 90 dB, no clipping. I'd rather not go further for my ears, probably listen about 75, so that's quite loud for me.

    Focal Elear - Impressions Thread

    I have elear with original and Elex pads. I like this, since I can change the pads to get the Elex tuning, but I have a focal-made product rather than Massdrop build quality. Members on a certain other forum have measured an Elex that reaches its driver's excursion limit and buzzes in normal...

    Focal Elear - Impressions Thread

    anybody got recommendation for a cable replacement that is flexible and relatively non-microphonic? I have Forza Audio Works for my 400i, but I'm not sure I want to spend quite that much. single ended is fine too. Just want something that isn't this clunky nightmare Focal sent
