    Hmm, ah well, I soldered the AD797ARZ's in my Corda Meier Move just now and they make the Grado SR80 sound amazing!

    Quick question guys, has anyone noticed a difference between the AD797ARZ and the AD797BRZ? I requested BRZ's, but got ARZ's..

    Grab some HD414 pads, cut a hole in them and put them on reverse. Sounds great!

    headphone stands?

    No idea, but why not DIY one? The cost will be based upon the wood you use.. I went with expensive wood. This is how I made mine, using Wenge wood

    DIY Cable Gallery!!

    Thanks for the kind words It's Canare starquad with a weird kind of Techflex over it. It's thick but very flexible. I love it! Sound also greatly improved with the recable and the Dynamat mod Pyrokid, if you ever get a Grado, you'll be amazed at how easy they are, it's crazy! All you need...

    What kind of cloth do Skullcandy G.I. (winter camo, pre '09) use?

    Why not take a pad to a respectable clothing repair store/fabric store? They'll be able to help you with it, I guess

    Which iBasso can push DENON AH-D5000?

    I got the D10 here with a D2000 (the same as D5000, but without the wood) and there certainly are improvements. The highs are more profound, the bass extend way lower, sound better and overall soundstage improves greatly. And the sound is clearer and cleaner. In short, I love it.

    I think he was referring to the gauge. But it looks like 22awg to me. It's Vampire CCC and Qables silver.
