    What are your favourite headphones for your OTL amp?

    Hello, I have two main amps currently, Flux Lab FA12 solid state, and SinusAudio OTL on OTL 6N13S and ECC82 (12AU7). They both nicely fullfill eachother. However I dont have higher impedance headphones that are most often suggested for OTL amps. Currently I mostly use Aeon 2C and AudioTechnica...

    What's wrong with my setup? Disappointing sound.

    Please do not throw any more significant amount of money yet. One thing about using Tidal settings to make sure you have 'normalisation' off and 100% volume set in your OS(windows/linux) is good advice as well. Try below in this order: 1. Overear headphones need to have good seal with your...

    The New AEON 2: It's The End Of MrSpeakers

    @mrspeakers Its not temporary, as it started few days ago, it still is in the same condition. I have few more headphones and more interconnects as well. I tried switching cables etc. No help, still same situation. I am from Poland so sending it on warranty may take lot of time ; (

    Closed Back Headphones with Biggest Soundstage and Great Imaging

    @inseconds99 Sounds like Sony Z1R for me. They will be perfect for gaming and are ultra comfortable. Also used you can buy for 60% of the new ones price. They would be great for positioning in games and watching movies as well because they create somehow the cinematic audio feeling. A2C also...

    Closed Back Headphones with Biggest Soundstage and Great Imaging

    @sfviahouston I also like Z1R, great HPs, but they were bit dark too my hearing, yet soundstage they had just excellent. Aeon 2 Closed are much much better with isolation than Sony. Has also very interesting soundstage (maybe not so all around your head but very nicely oriented as well) and...

    The New AEON 2: It's The End Of MrSpeakers

    Aeons are veeeeery sensitive to source they get, hence they scale very well with different amps and their settings/tubes/etc. Most probably the dac/amp you plug them in is just neutral like from my Aune S6. But when I gave them my hybrid tube output they changed drastically. Also such small...

    Closed Back Headphones with Biggest Soundstage and Great Imaging

    @audiobean Great post, thank you. I am very interested in ZMF headphones, and Eikons are one of them from what I have read in the reviews it would probably suit my taste. You've just confirmed it ;) There are also ZMF Verite Closed now, but twice as expensive, question is if the difference is...

    The New AEON 2: It's The End Of MrSpeakers

    @mrspeakers Little Dot mk3 SE is a hybrid not a pure tube, and Im pretty sure it has quite high impedance from what I remember, but it sounds good with low impedance HPs I plugged with it. All low impedance HPs I tried on it sounded better than from only Aune S6.

    The New AEON 2: It's The End Of MrSpeakers

    Aune S6 (lineout between 50and60 /100, yes it can make a difference) -> Little Dot mk3 SE with Amperex Bugle Boy 6922/E88CC tubes Also Little Dot is set to 'low gain' (it has 2 options, x4.5 or x9 gain).

    The New AEON 2: It's The End Of MrSpeakers

    In headphones (especially if you have big earlobes like I have) it is very important not to touch the inside part of pads with edges of your earlobes. If you touch the pad with the back edge of your ear then soundstage is hugely narrowed. Because the vibrations that your earlobe is getting from...

    Kaldas Research RR 1 Conquest ($500 Electrostatic)

    @TYATYA Do you maybe also own Stax SRM-252s? I have that one with RR1 + ifi iTube2 in between. I am curious what changes would SRM-353X/S make.

    Kaldas Research RR 1 Conquest ($500 Electrostatic)

    @kamikazeing I also have 252s, and iFi iTube2 that I can put between DAC and Stax amp to change sound and make it a bit tubey. But RR1 are tubey itself comparing to L300 :wink: Maybe tomorrow I will make a longer session of listening with iFi iTube2 in chain. ps. If you can adjust line-out of...

    Kaldas Research RR 1 Conquest ($500 Electrostatic)

    Edit. After few hours I can already say something more. RR1 are on darker side of sound than Stax L300, yet RR1 generates bigger, fuller soundstage. Contours of sounds are thicker, instruments become more realistic, the low frequencies are much better extended and very natural/organic. This...

    Kaldas Research RR 1 Conquest ($500 Electrostatic)

    My RR1 just arrived. Just started to listen them since several minutes ;) First thing I noticed: Position of ears inside the cups matters a lot! Make it as center as you can! Btw. @MrTechAgent do they need any burning?
