    Well, you made me want one! :p

    In terms of light, I found that you have to pick a bright room and open all the curtains and do it in the middle of the day. I recently tried to film something with a bit of detail in it and used a couple of LED panel lights that go in office ceilings (something like the picture below), because they are a nice diffused light and don't make it too glary/focused:

    They would also be an option.

    I can second this. Takes the sound up a level. I would also add that the cable is so light and flexible that even at 2.4m in length, I barely notice it is there with the Diana Phi's, both while standing & sitting. Out of HMS/Dave, simply stunning.

    Well i received my own pair today and i was so psyched because i had listened to a demo at a nearby dealer, however i noticed that the XLR cable was packaged inside the plastic bag with the headphones and has likely caused some scratches on the inside of the aluminum headband above one of the earcups :triportsad: Now i have to play the waiting game again to see what the dealer will be able to do about it.

    They sound phenomenal, though! :L3000:

    Oh, that's a bummer! Glad that you like the sound though!. I'm itching to get my mittens on these things.

    What headphones give you the best out of head presentation? Listening to the Focal Clear on the Cma twelve it sounds like you have in-ears instead of headphones.

    The 1266?
    Or anything plugged into the Smyth A16 if it ever gets released...

    I havent heard the Mysphere but that could be a out-of-head-king-contester as well.
    Otherwise, yeah the 1266 for sure.

    "I was spellbound by Chan Marshall's sultry vocals on her latest Cat Power album, Wanderer, with a set of Audeze LCD MX4 headphones. The sound balance was warmer, mid bass was richer, the music was more "organic" than what was coming from the Diana Phi. The MX4 was my Headphone of the Year in 2018, but switching over to the Diana Phi, Marshall's vocals came through with more presence -- I felt like I was at the session. Thanks to the Diana Phi's superior dynamic punch, the music sounded more alive; cymbals sounded airier and more detailed. The MX4 was more relaxed -- it took the energy down peg or two. Both headphones have very potent, cleanly defined low bass."

    So... The MX4 was so much better than the Phi until I switched to the Phi which was much better...

    I think Steve Gutenberg was describing the difference in sound signature between the two, and not really saying that the MX4 was better than Diana Phi.

    Yes, now read the next sentence...

    Next sentence is "The MX4 was my Headphone of the Year in 2018, but switching over to the Diana Phi, Marshall's vocals came through with more presence"

    He picked the MX4 last year, yeah?
