    Just listened to some Fostex T50RPs today... WOW!

    Quote:   For practical reasons I did things slightly differently to BMF - my mod configuration with measurements is back on page 540, post 8093. We think I have different driver paper to BMF, and since my 840 pads were sans dust cover, and earside felt was removed, I ended up with...

    Just listened to some Fostex T50RPs today... WOW!

    mink70,   When I first got my T50RPs and listened to them, I was immediately struck by the muffled vocals you mentioned. The poblem with them, in their stock form, is that their frequency response is very midrangey, being pretty significantly rolled off through the upper mids and highs, and...

    Quote:   Measuring headphones with REW is surprisingly painless.   One clarification I wanted to give - there is a difference between providing phantom power, and providing microphone preamplification. Preamplification is needed to bring a microphone output up to line level, whilst...

    This is an interesting approach, symphonic. I was thinking of doing something similar before, but with the Roland Binaural mics (I forget the model name now). Unfortunately, I ran into the problem that they require plug-in power, which my audio interface can't provide (and the full beans 48V...

    Sennheiser HD515 vs Sennheiser HD558

    If it helps, I've got Senn 558s, which were around £110 when I bought them a few months ago, which is a very similar price. I thought for that much, they were very good value for money. A great all-round headphone. I don't think anything about their sound immediately stands out as exceptional...

    I'll sketch up something very rough, but of approximately the right dimensions and see if I can get a quote sometime in the next week and a bit. If it's not prohibitively expensive (I'm hoping for something of the same order of price as the stock headphones, fingers crossed) I'll start drawing...

    About a year ago, we got some optical grids (for focussed Schlieren - don't ask, was a total waste of time) 3D printed by an online company - Shapeways - we uploaded a CAD model of the part, and they printed it and posted it directly to us. The grids were quite small parts, about 50x70x5mm, and...

    I'm still hoping to get some cups made (3D printed) over the next few months. I'll go with an open design - probably something that looks vaguely like the HE500 cups with a large flat grille that I can later cover if I decide that open just won't work. I'll definitely keep you guys updated if I...

    Headphone crackling/popping noise

    Watched the video - sounds a little like what I hear when the sample rate is set incorrectly. I'm on linux at the moment, so I can't check, but if you go to start > type sound in the box on the start menu > advanced, then look for the sample rate and check it looks normal. I only mention this...

    I sold my pair of Beats Studio.

    Congrats on your 558 purchase. They're a fantastic little pair of headpones, with a nice upfront midrange to keep things interesting, as you've already noticed. Not so sure about your headache problems - I've never found my 558s fatiguing. Then again, I am a Grado owner, so maybe I'm more...

    Quote: Whoops - I skimmed over the last couple of pages and obviously missed that bit. I'm going to play around with some things a bit more over the next few days, such as paxmate on the cup side of the baffle, etc etc. Will report back if I make any breakthroughs (I think most of this...

    Why has Sony not produced anything similar to the MDR-R10?

    I always thought it would be an advantage to have a true flagship headphone. Not many people will buy it of course, and you won't make much money compared to the amount you get selling millions of low-end IEMs. But, it at least proves that you can do it, that if you really want to, you can make...
