From what I remember of Saturn’s design it should make the Peerless driver sound very bright. Large open foam pads being the major reason. Alex got the most brightness which might be best for some people. The large open foam pads probably have a couple other strong traits but I found the tone very dissapointing.

Dude it's a general term saying that I liked his headphones and what he does with those drivers. I don't care what you think about my logic my friend. My ears like what I hear... you can go troll somewhere else
I think general terms are too abstract for comparing nuances of headphones using the exact same drivers.

My poor impressions of Hyland tuning are sincere.

Well you took what I said out of context my friend. I was just basically saying I like how they sound. I wasn't comparing them to any other headphone. Go back to the original Hyland page and you'll find lots of people that like the sound. You can dislike the sound and that's fine but you definitely come across as trolling here.

I thought Saturn was really bright. Not sure if I tried one or two (?). Would have to look back at posts and private messages.

If I recall the early iterations of Saturn were bright as they lacked felt padding over the driver. In fact, I remember Alex sending me an updated tuning kit for the Jupiter that increased bass and reduced brightness if I recall. I much preferred the Jupiter over the Saturn, both for comfort and sonics. I believe Alex is learning a long the way and I'm banking on these newest offerings being better tuned than the Saturn for my preferences, but I'll find out soon enough.

Yes the Jupiter was better with the tuning kit. I also am interested on how his closed back will stand up!

The comments over there are quite interesting. People are expecting one man to be running a company the size of Sennheiser, using expensive manufacturing techniques and what not... when in reality everyone knows that Hyland Headphones always represented — handmade. Raw.

These look and feel like they are handmade because that's exactly what they are.

Someone's son didn't like these when compared to other high-end headphones and want Hyland to be making headphone like the other companies. Hyland is different and that's the whole point, that's why people buy them.

Hyland Headphones look like they have been made in a garage and that's what makes them authentic.

Yup, but that's usually what happens when you have a massive audience of folks from different places in life. I invited Alex to share his thoughts there and it's been fairly productive, although I did shut down the dumb comment about wood being too thick.

Ordered the Venus out of interest and will comment in due course. Will see how it compares to the HD800S and my Stellias.
Awesome I will be eagerly anticipating your thoughts.
