    Audeze EL-8 Closed Version Impressions Thread

    I ended up removing the padding between the drivers between the earpads and the drivers. It sounds much clearer to me and doesn't make my ears pop as much. I'm contemplating looking for earpads that might fit these headphones and modifying them.

    I like tasteful RGB personally. My newest KB, unfortunately, doesn't have the best speed or brightness options. I picked up the dk61e since it's on sale.. Definitely going down the KB rabbit hole like I did with Headfi. Now you just need to lube your switches and get the butter smooth thoccs 😂

    The Sennheiser HD580 Impressions Thread

    Finally broke down and replaced my earpads on my near 20 year old pair of hd580s. I lucked out and got these cans used from my favorite local audio store. They were from one of their older regulars that had an insane speaker setup supposedly. After he passed the shop helped his wife appraise and...

    Whisk(e)y inflation is nuts. I feel eventually the market will flatline and there will be a glut. Hopefully prices will then fall back to a respectable level. I don't suppose we'll ever get back to the days where you could get Weller Reserve for $17/handle or Yamazaki 12yr for $30 :deadhorse:

    Wonderful! I visited the Edinburgh's with a group of members nearly a decade ago. It was one hellof an experience. Fun malts, I do hope they come stateside one day..

    I fully support this! Killer pairing. I've seen some crazy mods on the BH to really push it. The craziest was in Chicago, fully balanced!

    When I was living in Chicago, there was a downtown 7-11 that would carry the 10 year for $23, an obvious pricing error. Needless to say, I went through their whole stock. Good juice and makes a killer Blood and Sand.

    Smokehead is some killer Ardbeg. I'm friends with the US importer and they love mixing it with Coke. "Smoke n Coke". I personally prefer Ardbeg 10yr, but this can sometimes be found for half the price..

    I would ask for an RMA and swap for a new pair. It could be the cable, but why risk it? Adorama is pretty good with customer service, I hear. I have the same "suction" issues if I don't put them on in a certain way at times.

    I adore Ardbeg. I stopped picking up Day releases a few years back, but a buddy of mine is the Regional brand ambassador for Glenmo and Ardbeg so I usually get the opportunity to sample. I'd say Alligator is still my favorite but I do love me some Galileo and Rollercoaster. As for Japanese...

    Costco usually snags these values at a killer price, not because they are junky, but rather good juice that doesn't fit the flavor profile of the distillery. The low price usually comes from a distillery's desire for a quick flip and respect for anonymity. Indy bottles like G&M have been...

    That's awesome, I was curious about the wine makings I keep hearing about. One of my favorite brewers here is Chicago exports limitedly into China.

    Beyer T1s sound outstanding with a SPL Auditor/Phonitor. (Not too shabby with the HD650 or LCD3, honestly...)

    ^Sick. Also, does anyone have an extra source with optical or coax out? I have my Bushmaster Mkii I can bring, but nothing to feed it, as my main gear is currently in another state.
