Curious what everyone thinks of the Fostex T50RP MkIII headphones.
They image much better, way wayyyy better. But they need to be modded. Mayflower 1 is the modified version that sounds better. I have a set on the way.
So far im pretty happy with the HD6xx. Just curious what other cans would sound like compared to it. The Dekoni Blue cans look pretty good. They sell for 229 here on Massdrop when its up.
So what's your overall impression of these long awaited cans Snake? Was it worth the months of torture?
I just ordered the Jubilee 58x to compare against the 6xx and I'll only end up keeping one of them after I decide which one I like better. I love my 6xx when I have it plugged into my Audioengine D1 DAC/Amp which is probably borderline or slightly deficient in being able to drive the 6xx as it is, but most of the time I find myself listening off of my iPhone because if I'm near my Audioengine D1, I prefer to listen through my nice set of desktop speakers which still sound better to me than the 6xx's. It's mostly when I'm away from my desk that I want my cans and I don't want to haul around extra stuff if I can help it.
So I'm hoping the 58x with the lower impedance will be the answer for getting 6xx-like sound without all the extra gear. I'm not going to plop down thousands of dollars on DACs and Amps so I might never experience the 6xx at it's true potential.
