    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

      Seems with a good seal the bass smoothes out flatter along with very slight increase in treble energy around the 8-9khz region. But what could be the reason for -5dB decrease in FR Mag with a good seal between the 5-6kHz mark? Is something being cancelled out?

    = Hifiman HE500 & HE400 Jergpad Mod v2.5 =

    @jerg Are you still sticking to the angled jergpads. Any negative remarks on the angled mod now that you've had them for a short while? Those photos seem to suggest you also removed the vents as well?     Cheers nk88 (modded 2014 version)

    Speaker amps for headphones

    An amp which I followed a year or so back was the First Watt F6 JFET (I believe) amp - any of you FW aficionados know or have had experience with this particular amp. I stopped following the F6 DIYaudio thread a long time ago though, but all this recent talk regarding Nelson Pass' work kinda got...

    = Hifiman HE500 & HE400 Jergpad Mod v2.5 =

      With regards to the Jergpads - do you mean the pads with holes pre-cut and whatnot...     Never heard of him.

    HiFiman HE-500 (HE as in High End) Proving to be an enjoyable experience in listening.

      Just to add to this comment for anyone else reading that output impedance does not affect planar magnetic driver frequency response if folks are trying to decide on amps for their orthos. Therefore low or high output impedance amps should do well with either low or high impedance planar...

    Do I smell a comparison between the upcoming Tralucent DAC/AMP and the upcoming UHA760...? It will be an interesting new year.

    Tralucent T1 appreciation thread - post your experiences and questions here

      Thumbs up I guess. It is a very nice amp for the price!     Perhaps a new thread can be started for this at a later date. I see a few guys have tested it on the Tralucent 1Plus2 thread.

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

      A splendid photo. Perhaps you could also try one with just the glow of the tubes lighting up the HD800s?

    HiFiman HE-500 (HE as in High End) Proving to be an enjoyable experience in listening.

        Quote: Speak for yourself. I for one wish to hear more about the aforementioned amplifier.       Yes, indeed. Will never get rid of speakers. Spent quite a few weeks just on speakers for that reason.

    HiFiman HE-500 (HE as in High End) Proving to be an enjoyable experience in listening.

    A couple used ones currently on head-fi. I do wonder if the advantage over the HE-6s is lost when you 'upgrade' (i.e. the HE-500's versatility with all types of music). How versatile is the HE-6?

      Very interesting music! Thanks for the heads up.

    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

      Don't you worry - I am keeping an eye on a less than outspoken one's G-22000...or a 919 that I recently saw on ebay...   Quote:   Very nice. Is that a wood on the front faceplate of the pathos?

      They didn't charge you anything extra for the mishap did they?

      As the official Brunk 'creations' tester I will PM you my address. I noticed a few people trying to cut in line. Anyway, be sure to send the HE-6 along with it...Peace

    Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (24-bit/192KHz)

    I don't believe there are ANY Note 3 variants utilising a Wolfson DAC. Even the Korean ones. No news yet on XDA or any other tech forum...

    Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (24-bit/192KHz)

      I don't believe any of the Note 3 variants have a Wolfson DAC. Or it hasn't been confirmed. IIRC the s800 and the n9005 (LTE) has the Qualcomm or at least the Qualcomm DAC 'drivers' are installed. The N900 (dual quad core) uses a Yamaha? The GS4 Dual QUAD Core variant has a Wolfson DAC.   EDIT
