DITA I guess
There used to be a seller on EBay that was doing a wire mod for the Sennheiser 800/800S. He was putting in a pure silver wire in place of the stock wire that he claimed was creating a “sonic bottleneck”. He was only charging around $100, I think, for the work.
Yes, Abyss and Wells Audio do - two highly regarded brands
Yes, a fair number of companies carefully choose internal wiring and components, Wreckless. Shouldn't that be obvious in this obsession-driven hobby we're in? Anyway, I for one can clearly hear a difference with audio cables. If you just dismiss that, then we have nothing further to discuss, as we have no common experiences, and I'm bored.
I got my X's back from a right driver repair. Support was great.
My question: They sound different. Am I imagining that? I wore mine almost daily since Jan '15. I swear these are different headphones. I must assume that the drivers are different than before.
I believe they changed the drivers in 2016 partially to make them more reliable, but they also changed the sound too.
Mixman is right. Details here: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/aud...el8-ti-these-have-updates-as-standard.804186/
just listed my LCD X on local NZ platform,
hope they find a new home =)
If anyone has tried any of the Dekoni Audeze pads on the LCD-X, could they kindly share their impressions? Thanks.
I have the lambskin pads on mine. They are thicker than the audeze pads but are much more comfortable than the new pads that audeze is using. I had the 4z for a while and it sounded great but the pads were much more firm than the old style that audeze had.
I have the Elite Hybrid pads on my 4 and find them to be very comfortable. They are thicker than Audeze pads. I had the Audeze microsuede pads on my X when I had it. I would love to have those on my 4 but as far as I know they are no longer available. I find the Dekoni hybrid pads to be the next best thing to the microsuede.
Could you please say how the hybrid pads altered the sound of your 4 compared to the stock pads?
Overall I did not hear much change. Because they are thicker there is a small increase in soundstage at least to my ears. Tonally not so much.
That’s interesting because the Dekoni sheepskin earpads have made a huge difference, in a positive way, with my 4Z. So much so, that I’m very interested in hearing how some of their other options affect the sound. I actually have a brand new pair of Elite Velour’s for my 4Z, but I like my current sound so much, that I’m scared to even try them.
Very curious to see how the fenestrated sheepskin affects the sound. I suspect the thicker pads will be a good bit more comfortable.
