    Woo Audio WA2 and the PDPS "mod"

    It is good to see quite a few more WA2's getting out there. I have a maxxed 6X4 version with all the blackgates etc etc etc. I would be interested in a comparison with the newer EZ80 version. Anybody heard both?? cheers Simon

    Admit it, you love the DT770

    Bloody awful headphone. Almost no redeeming features that I can recollect besides being comfortable. I still struggle to see how headphiling them could save them. cheers Simon
