If you own the Emu Walnuts try the Brainwavs perforated oval pads for the Sony MDR 7506. I had a pair lying around because they came well after I sold my 7506s so I threw them on my Walnuts on a whim and they are a great match. They tighten the bass up a bit, give the treble a little more air/extension, and the soundstage widens noticably. They're also very comfortable which makes these pads a great pick in my book. I edited my review to include my findings about these pads and a link, which I will include below, but you can also hit Amazon and search for "Brainwavs perforated sony mdr 7506" and you'll find them.

Wow, I can't believe that the CAL!/D1001 has yet to die. Practically the Fostex equivalent of the Koss KSC75/Portapro in that respect by now. Those wooden cups look great, too. I like the Denon D1200 better, though. ;P

Man I've been staring at this for 3 days now, anyone with the bigger brothers (E-Mu Teak, TH-X00.....etc) can comment on their experience? I want something lighter and more comfortable to use than my Denon D5200, but would the sound quality difference be really noticeable? Also I'm reading conflicting reviews regarding comfort. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Yup, the mids were just too recessed for me. With bass that heavy and treble that bright I just found myself missing some presence in the mids to bring them together, you know what I mean? I tried Lawton TH900s with both type 2 and type 3 cups as they are supposed to be the two that offer the most balance and recovery of the mids. The type 3s in particular did a decent job, but it just wasn't enough for me. Don't get me wrong though, on the right tracks yhe TH900s can be killer and I definitely get why they have a loyal following. Keep in mind, I'm not a basshead by any means. Most of my headphones don't stray very far from neutral. The Teaks and the various Fostex and Denons and such before them are basically my only truly bassy over ears because I like to have a solid bassy option available. And yeah, audio time is several times faster than regular time. Kinda like dog years lol!

jbcalbears5150lol oh yeah I can totally see what you mean about the mids, though I think ear pad helps a lot. Smaller ear hole = more mids. So the stock big hole TH900 earpad is bound to have sucked out mids. And yes I remember Teak being the Fostex with the most mids. I just couldn't fix the vocal recession no matter what I did otherwise it would've been good. It's ok different trade off haha. Also different taste for different people so it's all good!

QuadsI've had that question myself and looked all over the Internet, and I couldn't find not even a Made in China in the pictures I've seen, so I assume that means they're indeed made in China.
Why are these not more popular? Only 13 sales so far. Doesn't people like walnut headphones for some reason?

"biocellulose diaphragms"? Is there some inorganic, synthesized source of cellulose that's different than the actual real cellulose we get from plants that they want to differentiate theirs from, or is this more bullcrap technobabble that's supposed to impress the rubes who don't know better?

ReadWrytIt's moreso a way to distinguish a plant sourced diaphragm from the more common mylar/other plastics based ones. Or from the metal coated ones. It's not trying to differentiate itself from the generic term of cellulose used in other industries. These labels are in the context of marketing against other driver diaphragm materials. It's the only one from a biological source, so hence the naming. The average person may not be aware cellulose comes from plants, specifically when you're talking about buying headphones/speakers. Calling them biocellulose is a good way to differentiate that material from the plastics and metals of other diaphragm materials, as well as from the more common paper cones in speakers. In context, the term makes sense.

how do these compare to the Purple heart? My purple hearts lost one channel and thinking of replacing them.

Curious in general, but for these specifically...Does the use of Walnut wood make a tonal difference in playback? Guitarists always speak about different tone-wood theories (mahogany-dark, cedar-light tone) I'm curious if a similar principle is considered with headphones? What are your thoughts? Can anyone confirm/deny?

Yes I eagerly await to see how far you are willing to take your trolling and apparently the answer is even when you are proven wrong you are willing to continue even being diminished to the point of not being able to say anything other than insults in response

maybe you should finish learning English before you post here is a free lesson for you argument definition - an exchange of diverging or opposite views guess what that's what this entire discussion has been I hope you fix whatever is wrong with your life that's making you shit-post online and attack people for proving you wrong :)

I love how they have the "RRP" as $299. I literally ordered a set of these from the Emu website, for $99,($20 shipping), just yesterday, literally(My amazing CAL!s recently passed on). I was actually a bit annoyed, when I got the email, because it implied(to me, anyway), that they were available for shipping. But, then I saw it was just a pre-order, for delivery around Thanksgiving. I was glad I already purchased them, as I will have them on my head before the pre-order ends in 7 days. lol I just have to shake my head and laugh at Drop, more often than not. Especially, since they dropped the "mass". I just don't understand it, anymore. Why would anyone wait over 3 months, for something they want, just to MAYBE, save a few bucks. I can't imagine anyone would choose to save 20 bucks, and wait so long, they had forgotten they even ordered them, when it comes. Rather than pay roughly the same, and have then in a couple days. I guess the surprise factor, would be pretty cool. But, I would still remember I ordered them "way back in summer", after opening the box. I can't fool myself very long. Even though, I have to do the math to remember how old I am, sometimes... It's like I'm watching a company intentionally trying to bankrupt itself. Such a silly business strategy, this has become, in my opinion.

Basically, the only difference, is the wood cups, instead of plastic, on the CAL!'s. But, they sound virtually identical. Same drivers, same exact build, ect. They probably sound a bit warmer, and overall better, than the clackity CAL! build. But, that difference is not audible to me. Just the same bio-cellulose goodness, I got from the CAL!. The E-mu's mainly look and feel higher quality. But, looking closely, they are the same OEM design, down to the short 3ft. attached cord. But, I highly recommend, them, especially for the price! E-mu sent them via DHL, from Singapore, and I had them, in the US, 5 days, or so, after shipping. It was about a week from placing my order, to having them, in hand. I was impressed. I hope this helps..

shkdwnstOh it's just generally speaking plastic cup vs wood cup will change sound (different resonant properties). Since it's proven in TH-X00 Mahogany/Purpleheart/Ebony that different wood changes tonality. Was curious to the sound difference but you said it's not audible to you right? Or was it not noticeable unless you A/B them side by side? Otherwise yeah the Walnut version do look more appealing to me lol.
