Amazing Value/Great sound!
Would recommend to a friend.
Is their a noticeable difference in sound between the TEAK and the BAMBOO ?
Idk I was too much of a cheapskate to get both, and too scared not to get the teak... my understanding is that bamboo is different according the the producer of these...
so he didn't describe the difference between the two ? but in any way i prefer to go with on safer side
There is a comment somewhere in the discussion where he talks about the differences... i don't remember what they were exactly, sorry. If i ever get a hold of the bamboo cups I'll let you know my thoughts... i was too cheap to buy them both.
Many thanks for your help
How do these compare to ZMF Aeolus/Auteur?
They're better imho. Aeolous is more intense and intimate than these are... less relaxed... teak has better detail imo. Aelous is more aggressive and lively. Auteur is boring... people say neutral, but i didn't find it neutral... just boring. Teak has more of a noticeable mids dip though... so you have to be ok with that... it is done well though. Now, that I have Teaks I wouldn't waste my money on ZMF unless I wanted Verite.
I would say Bamboo do sound closest to Teak compare to any other wood cups, but there is still a noticeable difference.
Obviously preference is at play here but I actually like Bamboo over Teak. So your mileage may vary but it's worth trying in my opinion.
I wrote a sorta review here in case you're wondering:
Yeah I finally switched mine around. The teak is definitely my preference. The bamboo is a little V and gets rid
of the liquidity of the headphone the teak has a bit. I definitely think the teak is worth the upgrade, but would understand that some like the bamboo better... but will have to put up with the V, rather than the U...
Lol yeah I think bamboo is half way in the middle between the E-Mu Teak sound vs the TH-X00 sound. To my preference I like the vocal better on Bamboo where as Teak the female vocal is too recessed for my taste, but otherwise I can totally see why people would go either way depending on preference and genre of music.
I also prefer it on the TH610 ear pad as oppose to the E-Mu ear pad so might not be exactly apples to apples here.
But I think I'm probably the only person that I know that prefera Denon D2000 the best follow by TH-X00 Mahogany so maybe the I'm the odd ball here LOL.
