    If someone knows better than me on this topic, please correct me, but based on what Zach has said about the woods, statements like the above imply a much greater difference between woods than is reality.

    Hi PacoTaco, first of all thank you for your interesting impressions on these headphones. I found particularly interesting the parallel between the 600/650 Senns compared to the Atticus. I am pleased because one of my favorite HPs is the HD598 that is an open one. But I need more and more to use a closed one and that is why I never upgraded to the 600/650s, therefore my choice of the Atticus seems the right one indeed.
    Thank you.

    Yea, I thought we already covered this before. Zach said there are some very slight differences, but they're only noticeable if you directly A/B the units.

    Even with the Fostex TH line I've personally found that the wood type usually only makes a very small difference. Especially when the cup sizes are the same. The exception is the EMU Teak cups, which actually have different internal dimensions than the other available cups.

    Nah, Padauk has a slightly deeper soundstage and decays slightly faster. It doesn't effect the warmth at all.

    It's no coincidence that Zach's new headphones have some of the sonic characteristics of the 800S and 650 as he owns both. They were used to help shape the sound.

    I have the heavy LCD-3, and also don't get any such issues, I'm starting to think it was my long time habit (now dropped because of how bad it is for your back) of doing crunches, which also work the neck. But really it does come down to posture.

    Anyone have any comparisons against some of the newer summit headphones available to the market?

    Sorry to hear about your ailments. Tendinitis is a debilitating condition. I've had it twice in my life, but was able to overcome it. I'll send you some links, one of which is a studio recording (a record) that was released throughout western europe many years ago. Take care!

    Sonics of the various woods have already been discussed at large in the Vibro, Blackwood, and Omni threads. Let's not make this thread mainly about that, especially since even Zach said the differences are less noticeable than with his planar lineup.

    Arm wrestling has brought me tennis elbow and an even more painful tricep tendonitis. Not fun to deal with that's for sure but what I've found is that there are specific movements that inflame it and once you can directly target those movements and proceed to stop doing them, the pain will go away rather quickly.

    Just some quick questions... why is the Eikon having more discount on pre-order than Atticus?
  13. zach915m
    The Eikon driver was extremely expensive to create with the new moulds, R/D etc, to recoup that cost I ended up building it into the list price instead of the pre-order price, so the pre-order prices more reflect the difference in cost of the drivers, vs the difference in mould fees, although some of each is built into each price etc.
