Longest... three... months... ever...
Maybe I'll just hibernate through the winter.
Ahh, thanks. I don't see the point going beyond 50mm either, unless there was a magnet that can remain small yet powerful enough to drive it, otherwise, you're better off going planar magnetic route for a diaphragm that big. Thanks.
It's KSV material with CCAW (Copper Clad Aluminum Wire) and it's underhung!
Ah yeah, I put 1/8" for the single ended option of 3.5, I should just list both. I'll make the change.
I hope I ordered early enough for a first batch delivery as it would arrive potentially on my birthday.
I need headphone help (lots of other kinds of help, but just headphone help here!):
-- for months I've been planning to get a pair of Omni's, probably in 1st quarter of 2017
-- then the Atticus/Eikon launch seriously distracted/confused those plans. Now I can't decide between a pair of Atticus vs pair of Omni's (Hobb's dilemma, for sure)
-- then I get my daily Massdrop email and there is a drop for E-MU Teak, a headphone I've been jonesing for months, but kind of "on the back burner," behind, not ahead of the ZMF fixation. But because it's a real drop, a real price, vs a stupid $999 list, all of a sudden I'm in headphone turmoil...
Other background is that I bought the Massdrop TH-X00's (mahogany) earlier this year, but was disappointed by them. Despite that hard-hitting sub-bass, I found them to be overly bright and relatively lackluster in design/construction, so sold them. After that, I vowed to stay away from the various Fostex iterations of that basic design--the only one of which really appeals to me anymore is the E-MU Teak.
Can someone here w/experience of both the Omni's & the E-MU Teak talk me down and tell me which is better, and why?
I have a gut feeling that the E-MU Teak's would just be kind of medium-step (but not all the way) towards the very same sound qualities the Omni's can fully deliver. But I never heard any of these 'phones...only going by descriptions.
Yeah the 1/8 single ended come with a 1/4 adapter.
We're working on them today! Shipping starts monday next week.
I have the Teak. I don't have the Omni, but do have the Vibro. I've demo'd the Omni, Atticus and Eikon.
If you didn't like the TH-X00 because of the treble, I can say the Teak are better and less bright - but not by much. They're more similar than not. This might be a detractor for you.
I have never heard a bad or bright treble note out of a ZMF headphone. This may be a case where you have to apply giant amounts of willpower and save up for the Atticus or Omni. I think you'd enjoy that more, to be honest.
I can easily understand you, I had sort of the same doubts as I was looking after the EMUs as well and I was one of those that "clicked" to get the option again... However, after reading a lot on the ZMFs I opted for the Atticus/Eikon that are a completely new project form the ground up instead of a modification of existing products. I prefer to pay a full price for an Atticus rather than saving money on a product that is repriced somehow somewhere and listed at full price on the manufacturer's site as well. At the end I do not know what I am paying for if I may say.
Not to mention the possibility of dealing with the manufacturer directly. So I made my choice on the Atticus.
Good luck for your decision.
Woah! No way! That's fantastic!
Eikon Cherry,thanks Zach for the help.
Now to find a good used Jotunheim between now and Feb/March.
I meant the PH Vibro's....sorry if I wasn't clear!
Ok. It's ok. It's alright. I'll be fine.
What amp does everyone plan to run the headphones with?
Omgosh I feel emotionally abused lol. I thought you were saying shipping on Monday for the eikon too. I typed lol at the end of the sentence so I didn't come off as brash but In all reality my brain feels like it was heated up with scorching amounts of heat then dipped in ice water. Wrecked...
Yeah I should have been more clear about my response lol...
