    (SOLD) Busted HD800 Balanced cable

    FS: Busted HD800S balanced cable - $10 My Sennheiser HD800S cables didn't like the LA summer. The cables split and the connection failed. I thought about fixing them or just cutting off the ends to save them for later.... but maybe someone else can use it and make a cable for themselves. I'll...

    Schiit MJOLNIR 2

    You can always try asking the seller for pictures of the unit in question. You can PM them or do so in this thread. As for "OEM" parts. In this case, that'd probably be a pair of tubes, the amp itself, and a power chord(?). You can look up what's "OEM" by looking for the manufacturers web site...

    (SOLD): Byerdynamic T1 $350

    Two more pictures of the flaws on this headphone. There's a weird shiny bit on the left cups mesh I missed before... Though it sounds great... ...In fact, look at the flaws and decide you don't want this headphone. Lowball me or go bid on a Grado so I have an excuse to hold on to them.

    Byerdynamic T1 (version 1) SN# 5780 $350 total (shipped/insured/paypal included) No trades, Con US shipping only. I bought this headphone back when I was living in Korea around 2013.

    SOLD FS: Woo Audio 2 (WA2) with two sets of tubes.

    Thanks, I'll update the post with that... I remember paying about that much for the Tung-Sols, though I'm not sure if the 100-200 hours on them after purchase knocks them down a little or a lot. I really liked this sound. I priced it this low despite the tubes... because if someone needs the...

    VENI-VIDI-VICI! V-MODA's new IEMs - Zn (formerly Alto) + FORZA - Crowdsourcing, Reviews, Discussions Thread!

    "Forza" with the rectangle box.   "Forza" fits in both name and definition for the sound of the V-Moda products I've heard than "Alto."  The rectangle will be easier for me to store, and it'll also be easier to ship. If the in-ear is over 1k, then I can understand something that looks like a...

    free gifts of RE600, HM700 and RE400

    I've done all three... though my nickname is different on each social service! I have the RE400 and am very satisfied with it. One of my favorite 'sounds' in a $1-300 range. (The Momentums take over at $300+.)

    「Official」Asian Anime, Manga, and Music Lounge

    I don't post much, but I figured some folks here might want to know about this. (I have no affiliation with it, but I used to be into anime and I like headphones, so...)     It's a Kickstarter project with 50 "cute" anime pictures with 6 different headphones. I was a bit sad to not see...

    Reply to review by 'sursumcorda' on item 'JVC HP DX700'

    I don't have the Mad Dogs around (though I'm eying the Alpha Dogs with a certain gleam in my eyes...) so I can't comment on that. In the future I'll sit down again with the HD650/LCD2/DX700 and check the separation on a few different genres. ^^

    Review by 'SursumCorda' on item 'JVC HP DX700'

    DISCLAIMER: I don’t have ‘golden ears.’   TLDR; Strong points: Some isolation. Bass/energy. Soundstage is GREAT. Good attack/delay on notes. “Fairly” controlled bass. Nice non-forward mids and crisp upper mids-lower highs. REALLY easy to drive ,you can plug it into your iPad (with an adapter)...

    Papadosio on Sound — a UE interview about how artists use in-ears on stage

    Nice. Thanks for doing that interview, it's pretty cool to see how in-ears are used "in the wild." Some folks I know are slowly headed towards in-ear monitors over stage monitors...   Currently one or two of them use wireless sets with universals plugged right into the mix board...

    Fischer Audio FA-003Ti official announce.

    Quote: Isn't wood more absorbing of sound than metal...? Or do they not put sound-absorbing material on the inside of the wood? Anyone with the wood version care to weigh in...? I have a pair of wood Victor DX-700s that sound great to me. (Though it is also the driver, I know.)

    Quote: It does! Thanks. As to the defnition of well.... Hmm. Generally a circular construction where the builders make a hole deep enough to reach groundwater in the area, then reinforce the hole with stones or other material. In this case, I would say that well would be "making it...

    Quote:   Hey, where can I get.... Seriously though, two questions; 1) Is this on-ear or over-ear? 2) Does the stock cable come with a 1/4th or 1/8th plug? I'm browsing for a friend who needs a good isolating neutral can for editing videos and the like. He mostly works at...

    19 custom IEM/TF10/Shure/IE8 cables reviewed (Effect Pearl, Apollo, & Odin added 3/20/13)

    Quote: Hmmm. I know Chris has different color options on his cables, is the stranded silver clear only?

    19 custom IEM/TF10/Shure/IE8 cables reviewed (Effect Pearl, Apollo, & Odin added 3/20/13)

    Quote:   They have a really nice silver stranded wire that works well with IEMs that need a bit more extension. It sounds best with my JH16, not so much with my NT6. The build quality is quite good and it arrived quickly with no fuss. (I have one custom wire that is finally on it's way...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    I enjoy my HD650, and I thinking of getting a 4ft cable for portable use... (For a quiet office, etc.) I don't want to pay "too much" for a cable since I already have "better" headphones.... yet I really enjoy my HD650s and want to use them more! I'm thinking of getting an 8 strand BTG audio...

    The Stax thread (New)

    This is totally unrelated to any recent posts in this thread, but....   I recently spent 5 days in Tokyo visiting parks and various headphone shops (Dynmaic Audio, Fujiya Avic, Yodabashi Cammera, etc)... [Side note: the Yodabashi Camera in Akihabara had by far the largest selection of...
