    Hello my name is gibosi and I'm a tube addict (group says Hello gibosi). That looks great but I'm looking for a amp that can run my Planars also. Still looks quite nice as does the Felix just wanting something that can run all my cans for now but that has me wondering .

    ahaha... Yes, with well over 1000 tubes, and more on their way to me at this moment, I think I am beyond help. lol :)
     
    Well, some planars are very difficult to drive while others are pretty easy. So if you want to run a pair of HiFiMan HE-6, some find a Glenn OTL to be acceptable, but for others it is borderline. It just can't push enough current into them to keep them really happy. On the other hand, a good OTL can drive the Fostex TH-X00 very well. I know one guy who prefers his Glenn OTL over his Ragnarok with the TH-X00. So again, it all depends...

    Finally got my HD700 after a 2 weeks wait. Time for burn in and I have a feeling I will be getting an aftermarket cable though

    I'd be curious to get a good <$100 cable myself.
     
    EDIT: btw they're down to $419 on Amazon. This is CRAZY.

    Hmmm... wouldn't silver brighten the sound though? I'd imagine you'd want copper to tame the highs a little.
     
    That price range isn't hard and fast, just an "if possible it'd be nice" kind of thing.

    I thought so too but after reading a few reviews I decided to go for their silver cable instead. Reason being that even though it is a silver cable, there's a hint of warm with improve bass with it. Here's the review quoted from hardwarezone :
    Part of the reason was also me wanting to try something new since all of the custom cables/cable mods that I own are all copper cables.

    These HD700 definitely need to burn in. Its was meh at first listen. After a week of non-stop chesky pink noise it open up, output is captivating now, very easy listening through mimby.

    Found this listing for Sentey headphone cases on the Deals thread:
     
    http://www.head-fi.org/t/692119/the-deals-discussion-thread-read-the-first-post/21900#post_12900356
     
    And there is some discussion regarding the GS-1401 and GS-1402 cases.
     
    For the price either of these could be a great buy, but does anyone know if the HD700 will fit?

    I have been using the non sleeved version of this cable for the past 2 years, without any issues.

    It's great for portable use and gaming on my PS4 connected to DS4
