    Martin Customs Thread

    I know.  I know.  I really am way behind and I feel horrid about these the last two orders I have hanging including gelocks order.  I really feel terrible, but he's been so, so understanding and I really appreciate it.     I have undergone a huge change in my life with my two young daughters...

    Hifiman HE-6 Prototypes

    Yeah, sorry matttcg.  Just the way it goes sometimes.  Look at it this way.  Apparently I could have got $1,200 if I had done a search before I posted.  But Tingc222 was at least gracious enough to come up alittle to $1,000 all in.  I generally follow the internet code of good sportsmanship and...

    Beyer DT 511 with box

    Bumped this old listing back up to the top.  Still have these sitting on my shelf.  They're pretty cool if you're a collector.  They don't sound bad either.

    Hifiman HE-6 Prototypes

    Picked up these last year here on the forums.  Not getting much head-time these days so want to send them to a loving home.  I had also planned to hopefully mod them, but free time is a significant issue.     These are the original HE-6 design with leather overlayed cups.  The rodblock...

    FS/FT: Denon D2000, Lantinen Cocobolo cups, D7000 cable (Liton USA 3.5mm plug)

    I'll add that the Coco that I used a bit more unique.  By and large, the majority of Coco is an orange'ish color and while I still very much like ANY Cocobolo out there regardless of shade/coloration, it is very difficult to find the deep reddish colored stock.

    Symphones Magnum upgrade for Grado SR325 and Alessandro MS2

    Anyone know how to get ahold of Rhydon?  His old email address (rhydon@symphones.ca) isn't working.

    For Sale: Coco DT880/600

    The hole is the same diameter as the stock cups.  I peeled and used the same dampening material from the stock cups and the screen has speaker cloth behind the mesh.  This is one of my most flaweless builds and put extra thought and time into these.  My Nova Pre-Amp ->Minute EL84 push these high...

    Beyer DT 511 with box

    Figured I may as well bump these.  These have been listed for-eh-ver, but I still have them on the shelf.     Will ship international but you pick up the cost.

    Koda-2 T50rp based headphone

    These are a pretty special headphone.  Only four are known to have been made by lokesen.   Please see the Koda thread.   I'm the second owner.  My friend Victor Halgaard originally owned them.   I've kept these the longest I could, but now need some money to fund a camera upgrade to...

    Audeze LCD2 wood versus Humidity

    It's not the humidity you should worry about, but rather the lack of humidity or dry conditions.  I work with many different types of exotic woods and most are pretty unstable (not completely dry), so if it's too dry (like in the winter for me) and the wood doesn't have a protective finish, the...

    Nice blog Keat.  I'll try to link it to my blog when I get a chance.  Those turned out so nice and to think those gimbals and blocks were my first ever set and came back to me all the way from Singapore (I think?) for repair and then all the way back to you.    Rodblocks/Gimbals are finally...

    Beyer DT 511 with box

    Hello, I've had these babies sitting around for awhile.  DT-511's are pretty rare not to mention with original packaging.  They basically look new.  The pads are alittle worn but not bad.     $125 $100 plus shipping.  So probably $10 to the US.

    Decware Appreciation Thread (MT review up on first page 2-10-12)

    Hey guys.  I'm really interested in the Mini Torrii with headphone jack.    Question 1: Can someone give me a total price paid including shipping to the USA?  I sent a message last Thursday, I believe, and I haven't heard back yet.   Question 2: Currently, my interface is a ASUS Xonar...

      Quote:  Typically greater bass impact, but if you're not careful, things can get echoey and muddy.  These were built at the request of someone who wanted the largest possible cups and deepest chambers I could make.  I had no idea how they would sound and neither did he, but they...

    Thanks guys!  FWJ #005 and now #006 are my favorites without a doubt.     I'll post more info on the blog as I get an idea of the price and finishing touches on the gimbals.  For one thing, the thumb screws will have shorter caps so they won't protrude quite as far.  I'm also working on a...
