    Interesting, I wonder if it’s not source related, or track related. My Wenge Auteur is many things but sibilant isn’t one of them. I’d therefore never expect to hear sibilance on a Blackwood or Coco, which is an even harder wood. I use the Auteur pads, a custom Canare cable and a NOS R2R dac/amp.

    Not even the least sibilant on my Blackwood model and I have a R-2R dac/amp too.

    Exactly the same for me too even down to the the wood choice.

    In fact it is! It's the Crackatwoa, BH's upgraded Crack with a shunt regulated power supply and larger transformer. I added their stepped attenuator and some Mundorf output caps. It doesn't get a lot of press on HF, but with some killer tubes it's a fantastic amp, well-paired with ZMF's.

    Is it weird to smell your headphones every time you put them on? Asking for a friend.

    My friend loves the smell of cocobolo, by coincidence.

    The placement (my desk is a disaster) and lighting (shadows, weird light sources) were terrible where I took these, but thank goodness for full frame sensors, image stabilization, and adobe lightroom.

    Very nice! Which Woo amp are you using?

    Normally I go for blackwood over any other wood for this HP--but these coco's are flat-out stunning. Color me green with envy!

    I do believe we have a marathon runner in our midst...

    Coco is the most visually stunning wood I’ve ever seen (including Brazilian rosewood imo).

    I’ve seen some Cocobolo guitars at Rudy’s here in NYC that were almost painful to behold.

    Judging by your avatar, I think someone beat me to it :wink:

    I have a set of coco Atticus and every now and then I take them off just to look at them.

    ^^^

    Do the same with my Indian Rosewood Froggy Bottom P-12 Deluxe!

    When I brought her home 14 years ago, she smelled like the flower of her namesake.
