    Newbie need help choosing child's (11yr) headphones.

    I'd consider something like the Sennheiser HD350BT and just go bluetooth. I've seen em as low as $80, but it looks like they're $99 now. I'd go that route just to eliminate the need for a long cable with a kid. I've got the HD450BT's and while the sound isn't all that great for music, it's...

    R E C E N T - Purchases Thread

    Within 60 days for me: LCD-X - 7/10. Kind of a "jack of all trades"; good at just about everything...but unfortunately not great at any one thing. Not quite regret, but disappointed in that they aren't my endgames (which means I have to spend more $$$ now to find it). Was hoping these would...

    E-MU Wooden Series Headphones

    No worries, ordered through Amazon so easy returns :) Just gotta keep looking till I find something that works I guess. I did try the other suggestions to stretch the hell out of the thing and got it closer but not quite. I noticed that to even get it to that point I was compressing the...

    E-MU Wooden Series Headphones

    Good to know. I'm gonna steer clear of BD ones then since my headband is still new. Any other headbands that are similar in size to the Teaks that you know of? I'm browsing Amazon but I find that most if not all the listings fail to include any type of measurements for the pads :(

    E-MU Wooden Series Headphones

    Just a heads up, but anyone who is looking for the headband pads should avoid the Vever/BD one linked above by amoeba. Just got it in today, it isn't even remotely close to being the correct size. I guess the BD headbands must be 1/2 the width of the Teak. On to the next one... *sigh*

    E-MU Wooden Series Headphones

    Yes, I'd say so. I have big ears and a pretty big head too so the stock pads just weren't a great fit for me. They were super soft though, but ergonomically they just weren't right for me. Smaller heads/ears would probably like them.

    E-MU Wooden Series Headphones

    Just an update since I wasn't having the best experience with the Teaks a couple weeks ago: It seems like a "sealing issue" was the crux of the problem. Ordered the ZMF Ori pads and finally got them in a couple days ago and now after listening for a while I can say they're much much better...

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

    Probably more to do with the fact that most people get paid on Friday so weekends are probably going to be the days with the most activity sales-wise.

    E-MU Wooden Series Headphones

    Are there any other off the shelf/ready to buy options for wooden cups other than Lawton (too expensive for a $500 HP) or EMU (their communication is terrible)? Not 100% sold on these just yet and want to try some new cups and maybe some ZMF pads.

    CSGO and quality music... Do I need 2 headsets?

    I don't play CS:GO, but I do play R6 Siege all the time. I used Sundara's for ~9 months and thought they were amazing for gaming. I basically turned into a sound-***** overnight and could get the drop on most people just thanks to the better sound awareness I suddenly had. There might be...

    E-MU Wooden Series Headphones

    Ordered mine on the 8th, got an email from Chan 2 days later saying they got the payment/order and would be shipping within the week. FedEX (blah, I hate them so much) have had the package for 6 days now (it hasn't left the first facility in Singapore). Dunno what the holdup is but I'm trying...

    CanJam SoCal 2021 (September 25-26, 2021)

    Gotcha. I'll check that thread to get a better idea, thanks! Looking forward to getting to attend one of these, now if only September can hurry up and come :)

    「Official」Asian Anime, Manga, and Music Lounge

    So I'm not really big into anime but I have watched some of what I imagine are the cliche popular ones and enjoyed them: Akira, Ninja Scroll (my absolute favorite, although I didn't like the tv series), Beserk, Vampire Hunter D, Ghost in the Shell, and Fist of the North Star. The only one I...

    CanJam SoCal 2021 (September 25-26, 2021)

    Interested in attending in Sept (it's like one city over from me so that's cool). Would be my first Can-Jam, so what can I expect? From what I understand you can test HP's and other gear correct? Is there any method to this? Like if I wanted to test Focal Clear MG's and Sennheiser HD800s...

    Rate The Last Movie You Watched

    Finally got around to watching 2 I've heard recommended yesterday: 12 Years a Slave - 8.5/10. Was just a rough watch. Even though I'm usually able to watch films without much emotional investment this was the rare exception. It was just non-stop dread just knowing that something else bad was...

    Rate the video games you're currently playing

    I'm in a RE binge right now. Just finished 3 yesterday. I loved the atmosphere and visually it was perfect. I'm torn between whether I liked 2 or 3 more, I'm leaning towards 2 though just because of the pacing. 3 was better looking and had better boss fights, but it was also more action than...

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

    Problem is no one has heard directly from Sennheiser about this. Will says one thing, then contradicts himself 10 minutes later. He has literally said "Sennheiser wants nothing to do with this" and that they won't under any circumstances repair. Drop says for example that HD6XX's are covered...

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

    Knowing what we know as far as warranty (or lack thereof technically as far as repair is concerned) and no balanced cable...if it isn't an HD820 level tuning and they succeeded at improving the 800s...I'd pay $800. At that price worst case scenario: I can consider it a potentially expensive...

    Drop ordering - question

    Chargeback? They literally just told someone in the discussion thread for the 8XX that you can in fact cancel an order up until the date they ship the headphones, and only after that are you stuck with them. That's been repeated a couple times by Drop reps in that thread, so I'd go over there...

    New at Drop: Sennheiser HD 8XX

    The issue isn't that repair won't be free outside warranty...it's that Drop literally said "Senn. wants nothing to do with this" and "Nah, we (Drop) don't offer repairs after warranty". I was all set to order one this morning, but when neither company can be bothered to offer any form of...

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

    Yeah, I've noticed that. Been keeping an eye on their boards and the initial response last night from people there was very very negative...but it looks like they're deleting everything that isn't glowingly positive and ignoring any valid questions that would put light on the issues with...

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

    Yeah, reading up on that now. Looks to be an option (assuming I can find a used pair that cheap...I always see them for like $900-1000)

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

    Meh, definitely not for me. That Will guy (Chief Product Officer for Drop) finally responded to the question about support after warranty/after warranty repairs with simply: "Nah we don't offer out of warranty repairs." lol, like totally blasé about it no less. I would've hoped they'd have a...

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

    What exactly is the point of "drop points"? Like, I read the description on their site that said "most things can be purchased" with them, but browsing the site I don't see anything with a "drop points" price...just plain $$$ instead. I assume there's some silly logic of pricing normally $400...
