    John, could you clarify which pads exactly you are referring to, I'm a bit confused with multitude of pads I had with Rognir / Rognir Dynamic )

    My objection was not about objective measurments, but about subjective listetning conclusions. ASR seems as good in measurments as deep and abyss-dark anti-good in real world listening conclusions )) So be warned! ))

    I have already been the owner of Stealth for a couple of months. There is no reason not to share my impressions in comparison with Rognir. Including analyzing the "comparison" on audiosciencereview. Let me remind you what it is, quote: “I was listening to my every day Dan Clark Stealth before...

    Best headphones for electronic music

    If you mean my threads on metal and jazz, probably there is a place for subjective bias ) But they're very, very good headphones any way. And I have to say, that my personal favorite first version of Abyss. Later incarnation could be more refined techmically, but taste-wise more sterile, alas fo me.

    Best headphones for electronic music

    Yes, at least every september this thread worth to be updated )) Many great headphones added. And I'm pleased to say that for now I have closed headphones (Kennerton Rognir), that I like no less, than many open rivals.

    Sennheiser HD820

    Probably one of the reasons I like my 820 - aftermarket price tag, that I had ) Never heard 940, but for many years proud owner of 840, great headphones for it's money. But with all respect - 840 no rival for 820. If I would look for closed cans really better than 820, my personal choice for...

    Sennheiser HD820

    For now mostly I use Chord QBD76HDSD + Beta22 by Hellium (in taste, one of most neutral sounding amps). This starmap in a way follows up to my threads about headphones on different genres ("best headphones for metal" is most vivid and discussed here). @Redcarmoose, I think we met in this...

    Sennheiser HD820

    In these terms you are correct. Men and women are the same - humans. 940, LCD-2, Sennheiser 800 and 820 also are the same - headphones. And not-audiophole person probably would find them the same, except for the looks )) But if we start compare headphones segments a bit deeper, we start to find...

    Thanks for your appreciation! ) I have some middle-end and entry level headphones measured by genre synergy here (and also in threads on jazz and electronic music): https://www.head-fi.org/threads/headphones-for-metal-music-ultimate-solution.715478/ For now first priority - to fill gaps on high...

    Alas I have just HE-6 - modded and worn, headband is almost dead now, but still are used from time to time. Missed Adorama opportunity, have middle medium-term plans to upgrade to 6SE and to add them on the map.

    My idea is that "best all-rounder" and "great price/performance ratio under 1000$" - not the same )) But if we are talking about "great price/performance ratio" + "best all-rounder" Perun probably really the best one - and that high in TOTL headphones group. (Not sure still that they're "under...

    Perun "Live sound" - extraordinary headphones for money (for headphones only price is groudbreaking, but don't forget - you need good electrostatic amplification with them and not so cheap amp to show all that headphones have to show). But I personally could not call them "best all rounder"...

    Nice thing to have - if you disgree with some headphone placements, you can see system and consistency in disageement and accordingly move fragments of big picture up or down on your personal taste )) ZMF - rare guest in Russia. For now, no ZMF on this map, alas. I have Atticus and will add...

    I was ready to finish experimenting with Rognir pads after the disappointment with Lawton Angle Pads. But I still decided that it would be not in a headphones-samurai way, so took a quick listen to the suede LCD-shaped pads. What can I say, comrades - it's worth it. For myself, I closed the...

    A little simplified - sound with accent on a treble, in extreme - also with a recessed bass.

    Headphones starmap

    I beleive the reason - in my HD 800 version, it's S/N 19xxx, later versions of HD 800 have less spacious soundstage and more bass, in result - much closer to 800S (at least that I tried) sound signature. I still have these 800. Never heard later 800 S, seems like worth trying if they're back to...

    Wood is good. Maybe a couple of spots with lacquer imperfections, but nothing critical enough to start exchange process (considering than it would be no problem at all in time or money for me now).
