    Pretty spot on on the bass and well... most of what you talked about the Fostex. Coming from a Fostex and an... Elex, I agree. Haven't tried the Vali, but was interested in. I guess your impressions settle it. Thanks but no thanks Kennerton!

    E-MU Wooden Series Headphones

    Hahahaaaaaa perfect, perfect. Yeah you know where to find me lol. And yeah, enjoy them the way they are. Balanced is kind of... a more purity requirement yet it may involve placebo as well if you know, your equipment is no further than 2, 3 feet from you, or you don't have real long cables...

    E-MU Wooden Series Headphones

    Hahaha I understand. I guess they're still onto the original design, original configuration etc etc. Though I must say, there's a reason for it all. It's a tried and tested platform - I guess they figured people would not really have high demand for a balanced configuration. I myself don't yet...

    E-MU Wooden Series Headphones

    Yeah unfortunately they'd have to be rewired, the fixed cable one. I gather even the now removable cable ones (the ones with 2.5mm) will need a different cable too. Stock EMU and even the Fostex I believe have only three wires inside that vacuum cable or even the new EMU thin braided cable...

    E-MU Wooden Series Headphones

    Hey Todd! Well I think I'd recommend either the XDuoo - that thing's powerful enough from what I gather, or the iFi. I myself have the Micro DSD but I do here the Nano is powerful enough for these and a lot of others.

    Interesting enough, opaque and darker shells have better bass response than transparent, see thru shells. That's why the VE Monks lack in that area.

    Ah bass, sub bass... Go for Vido or TY Hiz. There's Yinkrow Y6 or something, sounds the same as Vido (which means great sound) and comes with a better cable. 150 ohm TY Hiz is even better, darker though. Want even better subbass, the more laid back 32 ohm Benjie BJ49 is the one. Remember, its...

    iFi audio Classic Revival

    Just a shout-out to you guys @iFi audio. Great stuff; keep doing what you're doing. Took me some time to bite the bullet on the iFi microDSD, iFi USB, iFi iRack combo. Gotta say, I've got an other amps and DACs but iFi is such a swissknife, I think you guys gave them Victorinox guys a run for...

    Fostex TH900 mods

    Thanks for the feedback. Yes I still have the Fostex. Love it. Yes the same mod is still in effect. Yes I'd recommend the same connectors.

    Review by 'AT Khan' on item 'Yincrow X6'

    Basically, BloodyPengiun covered all of it, and I second it through and through. This is a must grab for any earbud lover, and yes, a [constructive] upgrade to the Vido, which may just be the best buds out there. Though I must say, these will be better received for those who listen to modern...

    Win a SUSVARA

    I want a SUSVARA because it's like Hifiman has condensed all their learning, design and performance in this one; it looks like an absolute masterpiece, and so it's a must have!

    Fostex TH-500RP - Stock Metal Ear Cups Only (WTB)

    Does anyone have or know about the possibility of grabbing a pair of those Fostex Metal Mesh Earcups from somewhere? Or someone selling for repair or something? I tried Foster/Fostex directly. No luck.

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Lol. Well good that I helped you in some way. I don't know but I just like them with my new mod better. More airy, more natural now. The sound isn't as tight you could say... anymore, for me. I can still feel the same subbass cuz I A/Bd them (usually, I can tell if there's any balance off on...

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Why are some of those Dekoni pads the same price (or maybe even cheaper for US local shipping) on Amazon? Massdrop often doesn't make sense to me. The X00/HD6XX are the only handful few sensible things they have. Others are just... better bought elsewhere.

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Man I tried it, yes. This will be ideal. But I mailed Fostex and to no avail. If anyone here finds these cups, do tell me. Took me a lot of time to arrive to my mod otherwise, but I'd still be up for grabbing these cups, yes.

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Yeah to be honest, you'd be surprised. Something always felt to me that these biocellulose drivers are quite something. Guess what... there's MORE bass now lol. Try it. Try urs without cups; just naked. You'll know what I'm talking about. That's why I talked about the Kennerton Vali.

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Not yet... they're on the way... I would prefer the most open ones... Even though I could go for those pricier leather ones, I'm gonna pass. I only like the Lawton pads, but they're so pricey. I'm gonna skip the ZMFs as they will increase the driver distance like my HM5 leather ones did, and I...

    WHATSAYYOU bout my latest mod? Hopefully my final rendition of all mods... there's too much going on in there (dampers and stuff) which I just can't list here... Anyhow, it's semi open.   Despite how much l loved them, in longer sessions, they sounded veiled compared to say the Hifiman He400i...
