    I like the plastic covers you put on the headphones! I could do with some too for that dust protection ... Where did you get them from?

    Which cheap and portable dac/amp?

    I had the sundara, with the BTR5 i would be near max volume from the 3.5mm. The sundaras sound much better from a more powerful amp. The BTR5 is very cool and handy device however! I still have mine

    Rank all the headphones you own + with descriptions -> don't type a paragraph

    Thanks for your thoughts! They are similar to what I think. How much extra to spend to eek out that last bit of performance from the headphone can be very costly. Definitely a consideration for the serious enthusiasts, but not sure I'm on that level yet. I think I'll go try the TT2 , they are...

    How are you finding the 1266 with TT2?? I'm tempted to either get TT2 + Mscaler with mine, or add the Formula S + powerman to my RME ADI2, neither seem cheap to do :disappointed_relieved:

    Diana: the second release by Abyss Headphones!

    I would say opening it to look is fine, but once you start moving the small magnets behind the plastic cover, they get hard to put back into place as they are very strong and start sticking to rest of the unit

    Diana: the second release by Abyss Headphones!

    Update - dismantled the headphones. You can see how the slide mechanism works - its rows of small circular very strong magnets in a socket covered by a plastic covering. The plastic had cracked and the lowest magnets were pulling themselves towards to actual headunit part and were out of its...

    Diana: the second release by Abyss Headphones!

    It definitely sounds like a magnet piece has dislodged. I've ordered a ifixit kit, I assume taking the screws off the back and realigning it will work. Can't be toooo hard!

    Campfire - Solaris

    I was thinking the same about upgrading the solaris to the next level... I've been looking at the Odin too. From what I read the bass is similar, but what about the rest? Also how is the comfort? The OG solaris is ok, I just got the spinfit CP145 tips because the final audio E ended up hurting...

    Audeze LCD-4

    Great thanks - I use it on my Abyss Diana which are power hungry and on high gain its only around 10 o clock and those are power hungry too. Good to know I wont need to upgrade amp for now

    Audeze LCD-4

    My personal motto is "buy nice or buy twice", I think if I get a 4z I'd only just crave for the original 4 lol. Hopefully someone can chime in about the A90 ability. Otherwise get an LCD4 and upgrade amp later, get that wow factor now, then more wow factor if I need to upgrade amp again

    Audeze LCD-4

    I have a topping ADI-2 --> A90 chain, do you think that would be suitable? I only got into the audio game in the last year because UK has been in lockdown for almost a year.... Trying not to spend tooo much too soon tho!

    Audeze LCD-4

    Interesting interesting.....they have a free trial so if and when I eventually get round to some LCD4, it would be a good test to see the EQ difference. Thanks!

    Audeze LCD-4

    Just googled - so Roon is a media player (subscription based), can link Tidal to it, and then Roon can apply EQ presets to the headphones. Is that about right?

    Audeze LCD-4

    That sounds promising! I'll keep an eye out on any good deals for an LCD4. I don't find the weight of the Rad-0 to be a problem and never typically wear headphones for hours on end anyway. I listen to Tidal - not sure what Roon is, are these able to link up? for free?

    Audeze LCD-4

    The amount of people saying that you need to EQ the LCD4 has put me off buying them, it is good to know there are people who like and use them as they come. Makes me reconsider selling my Rad-0 for them , think it's a worthy upgrade?
