    Show us your vintage headphones!

    This is a living legend of a product, kudos to the man who invented it (forgot his name). Gilbert Briggs and Wharfedale made several groundbreaking inventions, including the metal blade cone suspension.

    Thanks, but there's a lot of hassle with VAT and custom fees after Brexit, EU is preferable.

    Anyone know where original Sennheiser head band pad can be bought in EU? Bought a Geekria but it won't lock to the headband.

    REVIEW: Audiotailor “Jade” Vacuum Tube Headphone Amplifier

    Balanced discussion here: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/is-the-jade-really-a-balanced-amp.457047/ I only listen in "balanced" mode, to my ears it sounds better with bigger soundstage, more details in space and superior dynamics. As you get twice the output power I prefer driver tubes with...

    REVIEW: Audiotailor “Jade” Vacuum Tube Headphone Amplifier

    Let's not complicate things. You have one problem and two solutions, maybe three. 1. An adapter with two TRS plugs and one female 4-pole XLR gives you the freedom to listen to anode or cathode with your headphones ordinary 6,35 mm plug, or balanced with the adapter. And makes it possible to...

    REVIEW: Audiotailor “Jade” Vacuum Tube Headphone Amplifier

    Well, first you must confirm that four leads are actually connected all the way from the headphone to the 6,35 mm plug of your present cable. What does it look like, does it have a Y-split below the cups? If it's possible to open the 6,35 plug you can easily check this.

    REVIEW: Audiotailor “Jade” Vacuum Tube Headphone Amplifier

    A friend of mine made a precious find deep in the digs of his basement workshop: the original manual to Audiotailor Jade. The specifications page may be of interest. Note that the input/driver tube is specified as 12AU7, not 12AX7. Joe Lau mentions in this thread that this was a copy error...

    REVIEW: Audiotailor “Jade” Vacuum Tube Headphone Amplifier

    And it doesn't matter which plug you stick in which jack on the amp, you get proper L/R stereo anyway. The cable is the original one once supplied by Audiotailor/Joe Lau.

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    It's beyond criticism. I ended up with Geekria pads, not bad. The owner of Sennheiser goes where the money is, and it's not spare parts/replacement parts/service or a functioning web site. Look for other brands if you hope for sustainability.

    REVIEW: Audiotailor “Jade” Vacuum Tube Headphone Amplifier

    Switched driver tubes so many times that the socket wore out, irritating intermittent pin contact. Replaced it and all is fine. The amp still impresses, despite competition from a handful other very good amps.

    Comment by 'MDR30' on listing 'Telefunken TH700 orthodynamics in excellent condition'

    Planar driver, 120 ohms. You must differ impedance from sensitivity, stock it's 90 dB/mW but with damping even lower. Very hard to drive, need a powerful amp with ample gain.
