    Concur, the new Turbulent Labs X definitely do look like the Symphones Magnum V8! Exactly so except for the V8 engraving that is!

    I have no idea but maybe some of the others might know.

    Hi, Jin from Turbulent Labs here. Our driver is manufactured and tuned by Symphones for us. Cheers :)

    Does that mean tuned as a V7, or tuned as a V8?

    Thanks!

    Neither, the driver is tuned exclusively for us and is an update on our previous X drivers circa 2012.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks!

    I am considering attempting my first build, and of course the drivers are the first consideration. These threads here on head-fi are a valuable place to read about what differences people hear between the different drivers. Unfortunately, I am unable to find anything describing your drivers, so I don't know what sound characteristics you are wanting to tune towards. Is there anyway you can describe what you are shooting towards? More laid-back? More technical? Bright Grado-type sound?

    Thanks again.

    Hi, I haven't been active on Head-fi for a couple of years now due to studies.

    I just started posting again and have reread the Member of trade rules; sorry but I would not be able to comment on the differences or the description of the sound signature without breaking the rules. That said I am looking forward to reviews from head-fiers. Thanks for all the support. :)

    Cheers

    I picked up a SR80e recently and wanted to improve the bass impact and warmth a bit, so I went with taped L cushions plus the venting mod (four holes poked for a total of six) and wow! I think four might be one hole too many, the upper bass can overshadow things a bit in some songs but overall I really like it. Impressive what these drivers are capable of!

    using dynamat around the vented holes can tighten up the bass a touch and solve some of the "muddiness". i also like to throw some on the back of the driver too.
