    Nice. As I can see the grills are my design on thingiverse :) Where did you get the lcd headband from?

    Yep, those are your design. The beveled edge is so much cleaner than the thicker straight edged honeycomb grills, great work! As for the headband, I got it here. I posted a WTB (Want To Buy) thread here for an Audeze LCD series headband and I ended up getting one. Its a much more comfortable headphone with it. Monoprice needs to get on the ball and come out with a Version 3 M1060 with a much better headband design.

    I have started to plan a printable version LCD-2classic type headband with holes TPU is ideal material for that, but as I disassebled the headstrap saw that fixing it to the frame would be very complicated... :frowning2:
    About the grill i think its not the final version. Im working now on one that would be a little bit higher on the round frame, but that would contain only circular printhead movements so it would be super smooth.

    Can someone comapre subbasss extension of m1060 to that of MSR7? I want a little more bass than my msr7 digs.

    I never owned the M1060 but I own the M1060C and it definitely has a deeper bass than the MSR7. There’s also less distortion as the bass gets lower. The only pair of Audio Technica cans that can match the bass of the M1060C IMO is the WS1100is which is Semi-Open. I’m using both of these headphones exclusively right now but expect the M1060C to sound even better with more burn in. That’s assuming that this second replacement pair holds up. MSR7 is superior in the highs

    I own the M1060 and the MSR7. The MSR7 can't really match the planar, but with EQ (I use the Sonar True-Fi) the 7's can reach very low and with good punch and rumble. The 7's are very underrated cans overall I think. I don't play in the hi-end stuff as the bang for buck just heads south after about $300-400, in my opinion, and for my ears. The ESP's, 7's, and (modded) 1060's get most of my head time. I'm anxiously waiting for the Verum 1's. My gut is telling me that they are going to be winners.

    Me too, to both. I'm thinking they might take my #1 spot from the M1060.

    Some people say 5k ringing make m1060 fatiguing for long listening time, as is the case with msr7. If this is true, than i believe there is no point getting it.
  10. fpantalone
    There is no 5K ringing in the MSR7's. They are a bright headphone, lots of detail/resolution, and I'm certain not to 'everyone's' taste. But if you're not familiar with both, it's kind of hard to comment.
  11. OldDude04
    The 5k ringing isn't in all of them. I have no ringing in mine, and I just ordered a new pair as a spare since I got them for $200. I'll post back in here when they arrive as to whether or not they have any ringing at 5k.

    For longer listening sessions, does m1060 sound fatiguing? I'm driving my msr7 through lg v20 which is not a bright source, but for 2 hours of music, make me turn it off, bcz of fatigue.

    I listen to mine for hours at a time. Some people complain about a 5K ringing, but I've never had an issue until I took the foam behind the grills out. But this was easily tamed with the fuzzor mod.

    I listen to my m1060 in stock form and I can listen for several hours without fatigue. They’re a great sounding pair of headphones. I don’t have issues with a 5k ring either.
