    Focal Clear headphones

    Agreed. I'm seriously considering getting another set of new (discounted) OG Pros just as backups. I just love clears. I haven't heard the MG though.

    Kennerton ODIN, MAGISTER, VALI, Magni, Gjallarhorn, Rögnir, Thridi, Wodan, Thekk, and Thror Discussion.

    I'd never head of that band before... They're amazing! Time to fully dive in to everything they've done.

    Focal Elear - Impressions Thread

    I bought 2 pairs elex pads from the last drop and they were great. Going from stock Elear pad's they would be an upgrade.

    Focal Clear headphones

    Use them for 1 to 2 weeks then change back to your 560's. I'll bet you notice a LOT more of a difference.

    Icon Audio HP8/MP 3

    Grant Fidelity Treasure Glove 6SN7-SE's with a Sophia Electric 12AX7. Crappy 3 year old phone pic. I need to take some better shots with a DSLR.

    Dito. Also using the Elex pads on my clear right now. My old ones were falling apart.

    Burson Soloist 3X Performance Head/Pre Amp - 8Wpc XLR with MUSE72320 volume control

    Interesting. I don't think I've every head someone refer the RME as a sharp DAC before... Despite my scepticism, my curiosity got the better of me and mine shipped yesterday.

    Burson Soloist 3X Performance Head/Pre Amp - 8Wpc XLR with MUSE72320 volume control

    That's on the shop page of the Burson site. On the product page it's listed as 200 x 250 x 60mm. I'd say 35x30x15 is shipping dimensions of the box.

    +1 for Yaxi's on the Hemp.

    Burson Soloist 3X Performance Head/Pre Amp - 8Wpc XLR with MUSE72320 volume control

    Call me crazy... But isn't above the hearing threshold, above the hearing threshold. How does taking it even further beyond that help?

    Burson Soloist 3X Performance Head/Pre Amp - 8Wpc XLR with MUSE72320 volume control

    Yeah, I've been told I'll be getting one sent out but also no updates. Not sure if I'm going to get tracking, or it will just show up one day.

    Could be while you're charging? That normally causes heat. Not ideal though. I was very close to pulling the trigger on one of these and now I'm not sure.

    Focal Clear Mg Review & Measurements

    I don't have an RME ADI-2 or the MG's but for your situation I think the RME would be pretty much perfect. Especially with your desire to add studio monitors later on.

    ZMF Auteur Thread

    I certainly think the metal aspect is real. Somedays I'm completely content and satisfied. Audio nirvana. I feel like my gear is exactly to my tastes and, "it doesn't get any better than this". I can completely sink into the music. Other days, things just seem off. No matter what...

    Not in my opinion. I'd love to get mine done.

    Focal For Bentley Radiance Headphones

    I've switched to the Dekoni LE Stellia pads. My pads weren't uneven, they just crumple to nothing. I took some pics with both pads with my iPad Pro 11 with keyboard case (~1kg) sitting on them below. It makes the Dekoni's look stiff, but they really aren't.

    Some pages back I mentioned I bought a PS500e, but I ended up pulling out when I was told they weren’t new and had been returned. I’m finished with these two for now though and I think they look pretty sweet! One day I might get the courage to do something about the cables.

    Focal Stellia Review, Measurements, Interview - Head-Fi TV

    I've just got the Radiance and I'm noticing the same thing. I've generally always been using open backs, and the Clear is no problem. It's exactly as you described. I'm using LQI cables and never had a problem before. I get the feeling it wouldn't matter changing cables, it's just the design...

    Official Unofficial 8XX Discussion Thread - UPDATE SENNHEISER HAS BEEN SOLD!!! GT(heck)IH

    Yeah. Personally, as someone who often debates picking up some HD800s's they're just not that compelling (the 8xx). Nothing about the drop makes me want to impulse buy them. I would personally just get the proper HD800s and enjoy: Better looks (preference), probably better resale value and...
