    ​No - I only have the balanced Flow cable so I cannot hook them up directly to the QP1R.

    MrSpeaker lets people hear their prototype headphones at audio shows all over the world, long before they are released. Lots of "experienced guys" have heard them both pre-production and heard the shipping models and liked them a lot. I personally think that the Ether Flow C is the best closed-back headphone on the market at any price. The build quality is among the best too.

    Sitting by a crackling fire on a Friday night after work listening to Pink Floyd using some Ether C Flows and a Mojo. This is what dreams are made of... :D

    I remember reading awhile back that the Mojo didn't drive the Ether Flow C's adequately. Turned me off getting some... I take it you disagree and are happy with the combo?

    My C Flow arrived. The left bass port is open. The right closed with a screw. What about the other C Flow owners?

    Thanks for being a customer, hope you'll enjoy them!
    So you know the screws are used to balance the bass.  Most are mostly open, but sometimes one channel has a bit too much output, this is used to fine tune the response and match the channels.  As such, not every headphone will be symmetric in screw position.  The screws are Loctited in place; in the history of C and C Flow we've only had one screw issue.  
    Naturally if you HEAR a bass imbalance don't hesitate to contact us for support.

    Hell no! Enough said there :p

    Well I have only had them 2 day but seems to work fine to me. Obviously lacks a tad in a few areas to my main setup but comparing a £400 portable to an £1800 desktop setup seems a bit unfair lol

    Not even sure where the bass port is to be honest. Is it the holes at the top? If so I can't see any screws in them.

    I opened both and that is now right. Sorry before there was null bass on the right side. That's the same issue with my pair as before

    Not sure who said that but it's rubbish. Mojo drives my ETHER C and ETHER Flow with loads of headroom and pairs very well.

    Edit: My AK300 also drives both extremely well. Ether is not hard to drive at all.

    Also rocking my Ether Flow with a Mojo... Work very well together

    Oh dear. And with Christmas coming up and all...

    Say, while I have you all: how do you find sound leakage with these? As far as people hearing what you're listening to. I work in a generally quiet environment (typical office) and would prefer for my coworkers to not have to hear a tiny little version of what I'm listening to.

    At somewhat loud listening levels, how much do these leak out?
  14. x RELIC x Contributor
    For loud listening I can't be of much help. I usually listen at around 80-85 dB and at that level the sound leakage is not really noticeable at all. In a quiet office environment I suggest not risking hearing damage by long term loud listening, but that's my opinion.

    Okay. Now nearly a week into these HP's i think I'm getting to grips with them.

    They are very balanced HP's with a slight lean to bright. Especially the mids.

    They are excellent and keepers however last night I got my first case of brightness fatigue from them (I must point out I listen very darkly). I was listening to brighter music so it was not the HP's fault. I just had to switch to darker HP's. I see this as a good thing. Flows for darker music. Hawks for brighter. Best of both worlds.

    Only real issue I'm having is comfort. I have a big head. I'm a typical down under guy. See if someone can pick these lyrics.

    He was six-foot-four and full of muscles
    I said, "Do you speak-a my language?"
    He just smiled and gave me a Vegemite sandwich
    And he said
    I come from a land down under
    Where beer does flow and men chunder
    Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
    You better run, you better take cover

    Well that kinda describes me. I'm 6 foot 3 and big. Not fat. Big. I've always had problems geeting jeans etc. Legs are too big.
    Problem is I have a big head and the clamping force is too strong. They dig in below my ears and hurt after a while. Does anyone else get this or is it just my boof head? :D

    Also does anyone know how to stop those slide adjusters from moving? Mine keep slipping. Can that brace be moved to the sliders so the sliders don't move?
