Are you implying that @Jonathan c’s head is screwed on too tight?
I wasn't implying, no :D

If so we can probably help out if I donate my Koss ESP9 vintage electrostatic which must weigh 3 lbs. minimum and can squash a standard size orange with its ten lb. gripping force.

Then I think what we need to do is cross a jaw-grip-of-death pair of HD 600s with your ESP9s. That would be the ultimate Skullcrusher Candy (TM). Probably need to bolt on a headstrap from a pair of TH900s or old-style HE6. Then you get the duo-mohawk hairstyle at no extra charge :p

Do not try this at home, this can lead to permanent damage to: (fill in the blank bank)

FTFY :)

Sometimes I read that the RS2x doesn't work for electronic and rap.

I'm listening now the album "Doris" by Earl Sweatshirt with the RS2x.

I'm jaw dropped. When RS2x decides to show its magic there's nothing like it.
I think it is quite the performer overall, especially in regards to price and value. Mine did take a lot of time for full break in as did the RS1x.

Have Fun!

Selling my Hemp on CAM because they really get no headtime from me anymore and I can't justify keeping both the Hemp and the GH4.

I’m looking to soon replace the pads on my ps500e soon, as they’re starting to degrade. I was wearing them yesterday, when I took them off, I was left with black powder around my ears from them.

Looking at aftermarket alternative’s , what would you recommend for these, bearing in mind I’m not keen on getting another pair of the sponge type…

JerseyD's Frankenpad! (AKA - Beautiful Audio's Grado pad plus the sliced-out faces of a Sennheiser 414 yellow foamie). Patent pending? :o2smile:

Yep! I had them years ago when they were released. I don't have them any longer, but remembered that I was disappointed coming from SR60, SR80, and SR125. Long time ago though...

To me the sound was fine, everything considered. But they were so uncomfortable......

Just wanted to say that I'm blown away by my Hemp v2. It's been several months since I listened to it. RS1x, 325x, GS3000x, not to mention the HD600s2 were getting 100% of the head time. I put them on today, and it was a breath of fresh air. I love having many different HP's to rotate in/out of listening. When I eventually come back to a dormant headphone, it's like experiencing the wonder of a fresh sound signature for the first time.

+1 To night, I had exactly the same wow experience - although with v1 :dt880smile: Thought I was about to sell them - but now - hemp no......

Try including free postage to uk. They sell for £400 (680 CAD), used, here.

You might be asked to under-declare value on export form though :) Import tax is a bitch here.

ps I don't want them, love my rs2e's :)
