    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Hmmm I grabbed some for $27 off AliExpress. Those are the original Denon style earpads, which God knows how long I've been tracking down for. Personally, why I preferred the Denon style ones over even the stock ones is because the inner openings are less conservative and a tad bit wider, and so...

    Reply to review by 'AT Khan' on item 'Sendy Audio Peacock Planar Magnetic Wood Headphone'

    Very nice review. Seems like an honest review. These look pretty nice and probably sound as good. Only complaint I really have is that "DESIGNED BY SENDY, QUAD FORMER yada yada". They'd look even better had they skipped this etching and kept a lower branding profile.

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Sound improvements. TBH I personally like the relaxed, airier and less fatiguing sound after opening them up. I also need to mod my M1060c as I've taken off the woodies off of those and feel the same way about them too, so more open cup mods for coming that too...

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Yes surely - emptier cup (like with a wider hole in the middle), mostly solid - then a mesh style grill slapped on with the grills (in the photo) and speaker dust cover filters inside (a bit of a hifiman 400 series look). I think prob will set just right. And the silver filament can really match...

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Hehe I would love to but I'm far out, and even then my printer's in my home country right now. I do have some more ideas up my sleeve, will bring forth my revisions on this, but these are what I did so far: (some folks just got startled by these vornoi pattern ones - I don't blame them, but...

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Finally I see what I'd been waiting to see... for years... kudos! I've been thinking of doing this since 2017 - but could never find spare 500RP cups or anything at least as a part to buy and slap on anyhow, so I bought a 3D printer (can't recommend any higher for any DIYer, for cans and all...

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    I have both of these. I think I have the 2016, prob the second revision of He400i (first single side magnet array ones). I have the 6XX too. They both sound different enough to me for me to keep them both. ALSO, I own the He4XX too lol. He400i - WHAT'S BETTER: Way Better Soundstage. Better...

    Which headphone stack is better: SMSL SH-9/SU-9 stack or Topping A30 Pro/D30 Pro stack?

    Thank you very much for the links. Well, I've bit the bullet on the SH-9 finally. Took a lot of thought, but seems to me that's prob the best choice for a balanced amp where I still have the flexibility of single. Will put up a review once I try it out. Maybe down the road I can grab a balanced...

    Which headphone stack is better: SMSL SH-9/SU-9 stack or Topping A30 Pro/D30 Pro stack?

    Yeah I saw this vid. I think SH-9 still makes more sense for lesser monies, unless you're not going all endgame here.

    Which headphone stack is better: SMSL SH-9/SU-9 stack or Topping A30 Pro/D30 Pro stack?

    Ok so well planars I have 400i and 4xx. But TBH I would be looking more towards dynamic drivers in my stable. Elex, EM-U Teak, 6XX, BDynamic, Denons and then some. Would you recommend the SH-9? And what is this thing with built-in power supplies vs external, where some folks suggest external ps...

    Which headphone stack is better: SMSL SH-9/SU-9 stack or Topping A30 Pro/D30 Pro stack?

    But here's the thing/ I was thinking of the L30, but prob the A50s would just be a better option. Now if balanced output can still do the trick, though really its not really balanced so not ready for some real balanced input, but if the circuitry can still pull of stunts at the output end, that...

    Which headphone stack is better: SMSL SH-9/SU-9 stack or Topping A30 Pro/D30 Pro stack?

    Hi, I've been reading into what you said here. I have a similar concern with choosing my next amp. I'm looking at the Topping A50s or the SMSL SH-9 or even the Topping A30Pro. Now I'm kind of leaning against the THX chipset amps as there's this feedback of them sounding a bit sterile, anaemic...

    Hmmm, interesting. I got these back in 2016, or so I think... I didn't like em. Something was very wrong about them.They were surely the most expensive cans I got at the time, around $400 almost. I never kept them. I found them to sound less res than even the M50x's. They were very fatiguing...

    E-MU Wooden Series Headphones

    Hahahaaaaaa perfect, perfect. Yeah you know where to find me lol. And yeah, enjoy them the way they are. Balanced is kind of... a more purity requirement yet it may involve placebo as well if you know, your equipment is no further than 2, 3 feet from you, or you don't have real long cables...

    E-MU Wooden Series Headphones

    Hahaha I understand. I guess they're still onto the original design, original configuration etc etc. Though I must say, there's a reason for it all. It's a tried and tested platform - I guess they figured people would not really have high demand for a balanced configuration. I myself don't yet...

    iFi audio Classic Revival

    Just a shout-out to you guys @iFi audio. Great stuff; keep doing what you're doing. Took me some time to bite the bullet on the iFi microDSD, iFi USB, iFi iRack combo. Gotta say, I've got an other amps and DACs but iFi is such a swissknife, I think you guys gave them Victorinox guys a run for...

    Review by 'AT Khan' on item 'Yincrow X6'

    Basically, BloodyPengiun covered all of it, and I second it through and through. This is a must grab for any earbud lover, and yes, a [constructive] upgrade to the Vido, which may just be the best buds out there. Though I must say, these will be better received for those who listen to modern...
