    Hifiman HE1000-SE

    Please can someone here help me find a replacement leather head strap and ear pads for these, preferably from an EU source. I couldn't find much on eBay and they seem to be sold out elsewhere. Thanks:-)

    Stax 404 system longevity (and ESL cans in general)

    I bought my Stax Lambda Pros in 1988. A couple of years ago one of the drivers developed a mild squeal(which probably wouldn't bother most people) so I sent them in to a Stax specialist in Germany and they were replaced with a new old stock driver. I also recently replaced the pads and headband...

    Neumann NDH 20

    How do these sound compared with Ollo Audio's S4s? I had these, but they were too dark for my taste. I have seen a review on YouTube which compares the Neumanns with Ultrasones Signature Pro. The latter I own and love. PS I asked the same question on another thread, but this one seems more...

    Best closed-back for monitoring in 2020?

    How do these sound compared with Ollo Audio's S4s? I had these, but they were too dark for my taste. I have seen a review on YouTube which compares the Neumanns with Ultrasones Signature Pro. The latter I own and love.

    Upcoming Ultrasone edition 11 and pro 1480i

    How do the Edition 11s compare with the Signature Pros which I own and is one of my favourites? How is the treble on the 11s? Once I tried the the Edition 10s and it was terrible. And what about the Edition 5 unlimited, which I liked, but the treble also seemed off, metallic?

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    No, the Heddphone itself. Previously they said they were expecting stock within a few weeks.

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    I guess the conclusion is, its not worth faffing about with! I'll just continue enjoying them just as they are:-)

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    Thanks, I had the feeling it wasn't as simple as I first thought.

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    Well, I run my Sennheiser HD800s and Beyer T1s with balanced cables via my Oppo HA-1 connected similarly with balanced cables to my Oppo 205, so you would presumably call them balanced? Pardon me if I'm a bit dense, but what would be the difference with these headphones and the Fidelios apart...

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    Is it possible to drive these balanced? I have found a cable with a 4 pin XLR termination on eBay intended for the Fidelios, but I thought it required an internal modification in the headphone to order to run them balanced.

    Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread

    I used to own the HD580s many years ago. Are the HD58Xs basically the same headphone? I own both the HD600s and the HD650s and enjoy them but find the latter a bit dark for my taste and might sell them. I really like the HD600s(even though I also have the original HD800s), but I wonder, how do...

    AudioQuest NightHawk Impressions and Discussion Thread

    I need a 3 or 4 meter cable for my Nighthawk Carbons as the stock cable is much too short for me. Please can I have some recommendations for a good, not too pricey alternative, preferably from Europe? Many thanks!

    Questyle QP2R

    I have recently bought one of these on eBay in very nice condition. When I connect it to my Mac and control click on the QP2r ikon for info it shows that only 28.5 GB of internal memory is available, which I assume is the previous owner's music. However, the only music shown are my own few...

    AKG K812 Pro

    Does anyone here have experience with Ultrasone's offerings compared to the K812s? I am interested in the AKGs but would like some opinions on their treble performance, eg high violins, flutes etc. Almost all the Ultrasones I have tried (with the exception of the Signature Pros which I found...

    The other cable is just a cheap Chinese one I bought as I needed a longer one, no difference in sound I can hear.

    Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H6 Discussion Thread

    This is definitely one of my favourite headphones, but I have problems with the cable. The fit is terribly fussy, and unless it sits just right, there is only sound in one channel. I only get sound in both channels by fiddling with the plug, and pushing it as far in as possible doesn't help...

    Meier Audio Corda Soul - TOTL DAC/AMP/DSP

    What a pity there will be no analogue inputs-:( I have long been a fan of Jan's products, and I am saving up for a high end amp for my Sennheiser HD 800s, however, I have a large collection of classical sacds which I play on my Oppo 105, and unless I'm mistaken, I wouldn't be able to play them...

    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

    Having recently bought the Lyngdorf TDAI 2170 digital amplifier with room correction to drive my Harbeth Super HL5 plus speakers, and been delighted with the results, I wondered about the feasibility of using it to drive the HE-6s via an adapter XLR to the speaker taps. I did try hooking up my...
