    Interesting, I've read that before but never anything more.

    I'm really looking forward to hear more about them.

    THE AMAZING thing is this forum is like a free R&D team all over the world. :D
     
    Yesterday I learned that TEAC uses TASCAM H-02?? H-2000... something like that and they're like $10-20 U.S . One would think you need Brainwavs pads for most of these :p except maybe the 2050 like Z said. The DIY shells and kits are also amazing! but these Chinese bargain let me sleep easy at night knowing there will ALWAYS be an ok affordable with one click of my magic mouse, while chillin in da house :D

    I've seen them compared to Denon MM400 both in looks and sound - I think there's a review on here somewhere, that's what prompted me to buy them in.
     
    I can't say anymore (again) because of the MoT rules.

    I've just bought some HD598 shells and some 40mm drivers, I'm going to build my own and see how they turn out.
     
    I was going to use the drivers in some carbon fibre grados style DIYs I was planning to make but when I saw those shells I thought that might be a quicker option.

    Awesome Possum!
     
    Please keep me updated how those shells work out and ease of mounting drivers etc. Koss Ur40 (made in china) make good shells for projects, and I like them as well incase you don't want to wait China shipping. Ok I will keep everything China brand from now on. I saw the China grado copy shells, but wish they were cheaper.
     
    Good Luck

    I bought some carbon fibre tubes that's the right diameter for Grado shells, just need the time to do the cutting.

    I was recently looking for cheap n' chearfull headphones for mixing/mastering purposes. Just something that would get the job done.
     
    I found these on Amazon UK

    They're called Marantz MPH-2's.

    They only cost £54 ($68 American)....but they perform like $100 - $250 headphones. I read on another website (can't remember the name) that they are a rebrand, so they wheren't designed by Marantz. Definitely a hidden gem. Highly recommended.

    How do the Takstar TS662 sound? They look small, nice and comfortable.

    Just a heads up anybody still considering the LG V10 or even the V20. After less than one year my V10 had died due to boot loop error. Even after a few months my finger print scanner had stopped working. The rubber backing peels way too easy at the edges. I got a refurb for my dead device and upgraded to the Galaxy S7 Edge. DAC is of course not as nice but never really used my phone for music anyways.

    They're quite small and well built. Unfortunately they're also one of my least favorite headphones with boomy bass and an extremely small soundstage for an open headphone. I'm planning to transplant some other drivers in them one day and see if it turns out any better.
