    Don't worry it'll be like, a touch less mid-bass.  The magnets in the production Atticus drivers will be stronger than what you heard at RMAF, so it will actually "feel" as strong, just with better THD and control!

    I love you man. In like, that not weird kind of way.

    I worded that poorly. Haha, haven't had much sleep. He said "a touch less midbass" (as he confirmed above) and my brain seemed to have wrote "tone down the bass" even though I was thinking I was typing that first part.
  4. ProfFalkin
    It's all good.   I didn't actually have a teenage-girl-omg-freakout-lifeisover moment.
    Not at all.

    Just think of the mid bass cut as a better mid range proper. Its gonna be great!

    ughghgh... these are gonna take too long...I miss the Eikon. I am also eager to hear the Atticus production unit. 
    I postponed my purchase of the Milo and picked up a modded he-6 and cayin iha-6. The 650 is just not cutting it for me as my "only headphone". Shipping the Eikons back left a big hole.

    Same here, though I'm using the THX00 atm. After being completely disappointed by the Ether and only slightly disappointed with the Ether C, I have rather high hopes for the Eikon/Atticus. I'm most likely getting a Cherry Eikon, but who knows.
  7. ProfFalkin
    Really looking forward to experiencing it!  I'm sure it will sound epic!

    I'm hoping for a more refined THX00 less V shaped,with Zack's tuning ie the TH-900 done right.

    What's the difference between the woods for each model, and how do you think they would respond to EQing (max output)?
  11. felix3650
    The woods differ mostly in the weight and note decay speed. Cherry is the lighter of the two with a bit longer decay while Padauk is slightly faster (you hear the sound reaching sooner your eardrum) and heavier. Both are tuned to the same frequency responce however.
    About EQing them..only @zach915m knows [​IMG]

    Yeah, I hear you...the HD650 is a wonderful headphone, but I could not cut it as my only headphone either....but I tried for awhile.

    Qu'est-ce que c'est "only headphone"?
    This stuff is going right over my head!

    Ha ha. Welcome to Head-Fi, and...
    I still keep trying to get it down to two: one for classical (most of my listening), and one for everything else. OK, maybe three: one for jazz, one for rock...
  15. sq3rjick
    I heard both of these are RMAF and I still can't decide which I'm going to order.  I think it'll be the Eikon in cherry, though.  They're really both even more gorgeous in person, and they're oh so comfortable!
