    Woodworking audiophiles making our own stuff

    Wow that's an awesome table!!!!! The leaves out there make me miss VT and NH where I grew up, although we are in the mid-west I vow to get back to that area as much as I can when I find time. What type of finish did you use? I plan on building an acoustic guitar when I find some time -...

    I guess it's probably best to think about our releases this way - and I've obviously thought long and hard about this to make it work for the price-point we're trying to sell our headphones at. I think the main thing to understand is that we're not a "custom headphone manufacturer" but a...

    Soft cloth is best unless some substance is on the headphone, than a simple guitar cleaner with little or low wax works well. We always recommend the MoHawk Penthouse but Dunlop or Martin guitar cleaner works great too.

    Honesty I've stood in front of a lot of people who will go back and forth between woods and see what they hear, and many times at a headphone show with the exact same two headphones. Some people hear the differences and some don't. Even though I can immediately hear the difference in attack...

    Typically owners who find the auteur pads too warm will like Be2 solid or verite solid or universe suede. The pad chart from our site can be helpful:

    So glad you got them safely! 1. We are super short on wood cases, and haven't been able to offer them to anyone on the Olive sets yet. We're sorry for that and working on our supply chain. 2. I personally QC every set, we have new QC cards and I'll make sure closer to the QC area is...

    The magnesium chassis are painted - and more fragile than the aluminum which is anodized, but this amount of damage is more environmental than anything. There is something happening during use that is causing this. We have 20 to 30 headphones that we keep at the shop that have magnesium...

    If you find the mids too warm/fuzzy - even though I realize you don't want to pad roll, you'd really be missing out if you don't try the universe pads. The will bring the ear closer, make the sound faster, and lessen the "boom" and thickness in the lower mids. Changing the pads isn't too hard...

    Yep were staining it! Here's the text from the product page: The current stock wood for the Vérité Open is Sapele. The sapele is finished in a vintage mahogany stain for a darker appearance. When paired with the optional copper grille and rods, the copper will be pre-oxidized for an aged patina.

    We have been asked that before - and when pricing it out the cost would come to about 500 usd per Salire as the wood cost is about 10x as much. I just don't know if anyone would be interested in that but who knows maybe we will do a couple at some point but we have no plans to now. I honestly...
