    Audio-Technica debuts three new pairs of headphones ATH-R70x, ATH-M70x and ATH-M50xDG

    Headphones with low impedances need amplifiers that can provide high electric current and headphones with high impedances need amplifiers that can provide high voltage. R70x's 470 Ohm driver needs less electric current than a typical low impedance A.T. model [batteries of portable amps thus last...

    New Audio Technica Woodies: ATH-W1000Z announced

    Currently I am talking to a guy to make a version of hybrid transportable amplifier with internal battery, tailored specifically for T1. If something that is worth and fit for T1 comes out of it then I'll let you know. It will cost you around 1200 USD, if you are interested.

    New Audio Technica Woodies: ATH-W1000Z announced

    A new one ? 1500 to 2000 dollars if you are lucky. There is one in Tokyo available, or was a few weeks ago, but I did not check since. It is either a new one or a store demo unit. There are also some available in China, if you can spare 2500 to 7000 dollars. The used ones on this side of the...

    New Audio Technica Woodies: ATH-W1000Z announced

    In Asian fora it is stated that W1000Z is an improvement over W1000X and not a departure from W1000X sound signature. It is also stated that W1000Z need to be paired with either tube / valve amplifier or at least with hybrid [ tube / valve + solid state ] amplifier. W1000Z has, reportedly, a...

    Yes, the strength of the field required to levitate a substantial mass would be scales of magnitude bigger compared to the strength of the field generated by a motor. The E-M field of the stylus is very small and on the top of it its fluctuations are actually the manifestation of the...

    Wouldn't the strong electro-magnetic field cause interference of the electro-acoustic signal in conductors ?

    Sony's new flagship 2014 - MDR-Z7

    That is not true. Most people do not need to undertake blind testing whatsoever to make correct judgments. The expectation bias is not extremely strong in all who are in a process of  making a judgment on sound, not everybody is a subject to effects of expectation bias, there are exceptions...

    New York mini meet : Hifiman He-1000 Impressions thread

    Fool! I say you, ask your self "why is it a niche market in the first place?!"   Yes, why ?     That said I think many head-fi-ers are EXTREMELY desensitized to money when they been in this game for too long. They feel it is the normal or better yet, justified to spend thousands on head...

    Non-audiophile reactions to high-end headphones Part II

    The reference tracks to be used to evaluate the performance of audio equipment, headphones included, are tracks of music which was well recorded, mixed and mastered, all to an exemplary standard. These kind of tracks of superior audio quality are maybe 1% of all music tracks done. Maybe even...

    Non-audiophile reactions to high-end headphones Part II

    A - Junior, one headphones do not make a solid reference anchor for judging quality of sound. You can only COMPARE any other headphones to your good quality headphones, and make a RELATIVE assessments of sound. To do more than that you need more than one superior headphones, I'd say three of...

    Sony's new flagship 2014 - MDR-Z7

    Quote : "I'm not sure if getting the enclosure right will make the Z7 an R10 successor.  The two headphones actually sound the world apart.  The R10 for instance is very sweet and transparent sounding headphones with the only weakness is in its bass output.  It possess some of the most...

    Sony's new flagship 2014 - MDR-Z7

    Sub-bass is 40 Hz and lower. A Wikipedia entry stating that the sub-bass begins at 60 Hz is wrong. If it were up to me to decide I'd say the sub bass is 35 Hz and below. The 40 Hz tone still has the cohesion and integrity, it holds well and is not breaking up yet

    Sony's new flagship 2014 - MDR-Z7

    I do not think PHA-2 can do it. Maybe somebody who has it can try.  PONO player/amplifier was designed to have this balanced mode driving ability. On the PONO thread they talk about it. [Towards the end of the thread] There, you can have a player and an amplifier with a choice of using single...
