    I disagree. Even the stock pleather pads sound worlds better than velour. Velour destroys the bass and does wonky stuff to the treble

    A hot but very satisfying week in SoCal...

    my HiFiMAN's finally racked 1,000 dedicated hours inside the listening room. A session filled with wax (45's) - Astrud Gilberto; Getz/Gilberto; Bill Evans Trio.

    I finally hooked my HE-6 to my Klout. The Klout's dark nature suites the HE-6's character.

    I won't be able to compare the HE-6/Klout against the Stax 007 Mk1/KGST 'til tomorrow. 007 transparency against the HE-6 immediacy.

    If you want the best of both worlds plus more, you can get it with an SR-009 or SR-009S and a KGSSHV Carbon.

    009 magic on BHSE, it wasn't even close IMO. There were others there, they heard the same I did.

    I'm pretty much done with my setup. A Bel Canto Pre2 preamp feeding both Klout and KGST and an Exogal DAC. The Duelund ICs are excellent, not too expensive. And Cabledyne power cords. Oppo 95 for transport.

    Stax/BHSE/Carbon, not even close with my speaker setup back then. Oh well.

    Real audiophiles don't listen to headphones, oops! I take it back, sorry, we're on Head-Fi!

    Yup--they all carry a boombox.

    Ah, what's a boombox?
    My speakers were Apogee Scintilla, like this. What are yours? Scintilla.jpg

    ^ Were? Lose them in a poker game?

    Mine are relatively modest bi-amped Monitor Audio Silver 8's.

    No, lost interest after I heard these.

    ^^ Wonder if the headband fits the old HE-6.
