    VSONIC VC02 Thread

    Glad to hear that these worked out for you, Azat! Mine are fifty hours in, had a listen, these are indeed airy and bright, nice, still a bit sibilant, though.

    TDK IE800 Dual High-Performance Dynamic Micro-Drivers IEM

    Can't you cancel the order before they ship? Either way, that is still much cheaper and I hope you get a pair soon. Then you can compare them to the RE262, perhaps. :P

    VSONIC VC02 Thread

    Now I am getting a bit worried as I have a pair of these on the way. Hopefully they'll arrive next week. Funnily enough I have an unopened XBA-1 in the drawer. The plan is to only open them if I don't like the vsonics, otherwise they are goung back. As far as burn in, I did have sets with out...

    This is the burn-in patrol!  Put your phones down, and step away from your source!!    Leave them playing overnight a little louder than you usually do, and check back here tomorrow for impressions!      Boomy bass and some harshness usually disappear after the drivers have...

    Sennheiser CX985 Review

    Thank you for the very well written review. An observation: I found the text between the pictures harder to read as I kept referring to them only to find they did not pertain specifically to what was written (take it for what it's worth, not much). :-p  I had my eyes on these for a while...

    Anyone have experience with the new "Pro-ject Head Box S"?

    I have been looking into this amp and I also have a pair of HD 598's. If the Head Box SE II specs apply (I believe they do), this amp won't be suitable for these headphones, as it goes against the 1/8 rule. Which means it has too much output impedance to power the 598's (55 ohms): it is 30...

    List of Current Mid-Fi Closed Back Circumaurals?

    Quote: I didn't know that. Also I didn't mention the 80's because they are on-ear, if I'm not mistaken.   So, only the V-Moda Crossfade LP2 ($200) could be added to the list .

    Mid-fi Shootout - HD600 - HD598 - Focal Spirit One - Philips Fidelio L1

    Very interesting, detailed and documented article. Thank you for sharing. It should prove especially helpful for new audiophiles looking to make the jump to mid-fi. I don't know what you think about AKG headphones, but I would love to see the likes of them added to your experience and/or...

    Review! Fischer Audio's FA-004

    Especially if you only paid 12 euros for them!   Quote: Well, I received the pads today from (part no.: HPAEC750). As you said, they aren't flush but they don't come off on their own either. The main difference to the stock ones is the comfort, which is much, much better...

    Review! Fischer Audio's FA-004

      Quote:   Hey! Again, thanks for the tip. Wouldn't have done it if you hadn't shared your experiment.   Quote: Interesting! Could you give us your take on any changes to the sound with the Shure pads? Also, how much bigger are they? Were it be noticeable for someone who...

    Review! Fischer Audio's FA-004

    So, I finally got around to removing the foam covering the drivers on the Brainwavz on the HM5, and I have to say I am very pleasantly surprised. I believe I noticed the difference more than our guinea pig user FlySweep (thanks for the tip BTW). Not only have the mids opened up, they are more...

    Check for happy customers ...

    I ordered some sennheiser spare pads from them. No problems at all: fast shipping and original parts. I didn't spend a lot of money in the shop, but, from my experince, I recommend it.

    Amps for AKG K240 mkii

    Hi, I'm the previous owner of timjim33 's K240's. ^_^ When I bought these headphones I was just starting appreciating headphones but I already had the FiiO e10. Now, I was happy with this combo, but seeing as timjim33 is just starting as well maybe some of you could give him some more...

    Who else feels like the Sennheiser HD598s are unwearable?

    Anyone noticing a trend?   I believe this is the 4th recent thread about the 598's being uncomfortable.   I'm gonna bet AKG fanboys started these.

    Nice to hear.   So the comfies are working out for you but have you given any more thought to modding the headband?
