    Best IEM tips?

    Wow,. literally double the price of most tips out there. Is this the new pricing for them? I remember that they were easy to find, and about $15-20 for 4 pairs

    For 6AS7G tube rollers here .....

    Nope, it was untested and I took a chance... It's running fine now, after it was popping, I recleaned the pins, and tested it with cheap throwaway headphones - still a bit worried. I've had many 6080s pass through my hands, and I've never seen the flashing flake like that

    For 6AS7G tube rollers here .....

    I just bought this tung sol 6080 and the getter is flaky? Also popped a few times on start up, but I cleaned the pins and it seems to be okay now, but is it signs of a failing tube? First pop scared the life out of me - I thought I damaged my HD600s

    Ahh, that's leopard wood Zach mentions there maybe some wood tear out from the machining on the site - what property of wood causes it to be more prone to tear out during machining?

    You can order the firmware upgrade from them (send email) - $30+- and shipping, they send you an 8 pin DIP, you open it and swap it

    The Entry Level Stax Thread

    The T1/006 and the new 700t are basically the same with slight modernization - consensus is to go aftermarket or do a constant current source mod to replace the loading resistors to get more power

    Grado Fan Club!

    The SR80e I bought have a bunch of hours on them already I should try and audition the rs2e again - I casually listened to them at canjam at schiit's booth and didn't think too much for them, but they weren't so thin, reverby (shouty?) with female vocals, and dry with the treble. I know the...

    Grado Fan Club!

    So I picked up a cheap pair of used SR80e and a new pair of s cush - the sound is a little wonky for me - highs are in your face and pop alt rock cymbals are a rude awakening - vocals are thin-ish and have a reverby effect. Should I spend $58 and change to get ttvj deluxe flat pads on a pair of...

    Grado Fan Club!

    Looking to try grados again With the ttvj flat/deluxe flat pads, how will the sound differ between the sr225e/325e/rs2e? How different are the sound signatures between the 3? Also, are there any current grados that sound like the old Joseph grado models? Were there Joe grado models besides...

    HIFIMAN HE-R10 Closed-Back Headphones Discussion & Impressions

    It's one thing to make an actual homage, and to make a headphone inspired by an out of production past product, but this is like making a stax sigma clone called the gamma, and then saying, "oh the original sucked", this is much better and charging some crazy pricing for it

    ZMF Verite

    If your tube amp has output transformers, and there's no load on it (assuming there's no circuit to load it with headphones unplugged) - you risk damaging the tubes and the output transformer - especially true if your source is playing Now that it's hot and sweaty, has anyone encountered...

    Stax SR-L300 Impressions Thread

    You'll get some severe impedance mismatches using the output of an amp into the input of another amp - why would you want to introduce more distortions and unneeded gain? Maybe a tube preamp at most

    The T1 series and some 006 had normal bias - I think you can get custom amps with normal bias too
