DIY Planar magnetic heapdhones in details

    I really want opinions of at least one top reviewer before taking money from anybody. Believe me, I don't want to take 300$ and leave a person with something he'll never use. 300, 3000 and even 30.000 won't change anything in my life. Making headphones that will be highly appreciated - will change much more.
    I think that my experiment is successful, but it's only my opinion. I want to check whether experienced head-fe'ers share same opinion.
    Contacted Tyll Hertsens from Innerfidelity.com a week ago, but unfortunately still no sign of interest from his side. I bet he receives such emails too often :wink:

    Its a new blog started by @Hawaiibadboy that I'm a part of. I'm still a newbie to reviewing, my opinion wouldn't help you further your product to be fair. If you want to contact HBB you can do that on this site, or he has a YouTube channel that he does reviews on, you can see that HERE. I'd love to hear what he had to say about your headphones.

    Ideally you would want someone who is reputable and has had good experience with high end gear such as the he-1000, lcd-3, ether flow, hd800s at minimum with good amps/dac so that they can make a valid evaluation on it's performance within the market.

    This is why Tyll is the obvious choice, since he also has published experience with a wide variety of DIY modded headphones and various prototypes from bigger companies too.
    Being familiar with flagships alone isn't enough IMO. It's the sheer volume and variety of experiences across the spectrum that allows one to make justifiable evaluations.

    Definitely interested. Can't wait. I've been lurking for a while.
    Could you tell us with what range of amps + dacs you've tested them so far. Would be awesome if you could give us some insight into your preliminary observations on what would be needed to power them properly before the reviewers give us their take on it.

    Hello SoniMax, first of all let me explain - I'm not a head-fier. I never had headphones and headphone amps\dacs. I'm a "stationary" audiophile :wink:
    At home I listen my headphones from the speaker output of my Exposure amplifier and I like what I hear :wink: So I definitely recommend not to use headphone amplifiers with low sensitivity planar headphones - just use usual amplifiers for speakers.

    But for sure I've tested my headphones with dedicated headhone gear.
    What I can say - almost ok with Iphone. Rather well with Hifiman HM 603 and the best results with Flux Lab Solid One http://www.fluxlab-acoustics.com/Products/19

    p.s. How to get in touch with Tyll?
