Have been following my headphones to Germany through the DHL tracking though they are said to have failed delivery. When I contact DHL parcel here in Berlin they say that the tracking number provided by Drop and DHL global is invalid. Even one collegue said that they were sent to a completely different address. However after calling on Skype DHL global back in the US they said that the address is infact correct and the headphones are laying in transit somewhere in Germany , but have no way of sending them themselves out to the correct address. Anyone have similar issues and resolve for such situations ? Would be great if Drop would offer a DHL express service for international shipping as that customer support is much better.
I've noticed a rather lot of blind enthusiasm on these forums where people just drop a single link to an ASR 'review' without commentary as though Amir offers any authority on the subject.
Amir is an ex software engineer, 'retired' Microsoft money (EDIT, Amir has corrected me, he is not a software engineer, this is my bad, his background is linked in his sig on ASF); he larps as though he understands hardware but a quick trip off the DAC reservation shows his ignorance very quickly. For instance, here he is needing to be told by one of his forum members that he can simply add a balanced cord to his HD650 to test balanced lol: https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/so-what-is-a-common-balanced-headphone-for-testing.4949/ Dude seriously thought he needed an entirely new pair of headphones! LMAO.
More fundamentally, he makes all sorts of commentary on spectrum shape at sub -110 dB levels, but offers no precision gauge in the form of repeated measurements...
I've been using the SHP9500s with the vmoda boompro for a few years and love the combo. Figured it was time to check in on the latest and greatest.
What's the communitys favorite headphones for gaming that now? Built in mic, compatible with the boompro, or < $20 mic attachment preferred.
Lets make this happen, a baby Orpheus for the modern audiophile world. We have the Sennheiser HE 1, but no other electrostatic from the company for the audiophile that's looking for the Sennheiser sound at an (way more) accesible price. The system should be based on the HE 60 project, an electrostatic with price-consciousness in mind, as the then HE 90 (Orpheus) was too expensive just as the HE 1 is actually. And just like the 600 series it should have a good build quality but using the famous plastic that Sennheiser is known for, which we still have from the 580 Precision and it is still rock solid. And most importantly, great sound quality paired with an energizer that can deliver (more than) enough power to drive the electrostatic driver. I would suggest the name to be HE 0X (Zero X), as it's a baby HE 1 and an 'X' has always trailed on Massdrop x Sennheiser collaborations. I had previously seen that Will from Collaborations said they had already pitched Sennheiser for the HE X0,...
I listen to music pretty much from internet stations like spotify, youtube music etc using wifi phone/laptop and using wireless headsets. But looking at various comments on drop, I feel I am obviously missing something. I do not think I want to go back to CDs and wired systems.
What are the some really good wireless music systems I should look at?
I am ok with cost in few thousand USD.
Hello. I'm the proud owner of a Focal Elex and I'm wondering what amp pairs well with it. For reference, I currently own a Schiit Magni 3 and JDS atom, as well as a topping D10 dac. I'm looking for something that will smooth out the sound a bit, bring vocals forward somewhat, and increase the bass quantity. I'm considering the following amps:
Schiit Asgard 3
Cavalli Tube Hybrid
Liquid Carbon X
My budget is 300 dollars, and I'm very willing to look at used items!
I’ve never really liked foam tips, because I find it a pain to roll, insert, then have to hold the IEMs in place, until the foam expands. I like using silicone tips, but do miss the isolation of the foam tips. I’ve been looking for hybrid foam/silicone tips for a while, and haven’t found any readily available. I do like the isolation provided by multi-flange tips, and find the Shure triple-flange tips the most comfortable (not too sticky) for repeated use. I do cut off the smallest flange because it’s more comfortable, and doesn’t roll off the highs much. Well, I was experimenting with tips for my Etymotics, and found that the stalk of the triple flange Shure tips, perfectly fits snugly into the center of the Mercury (4.9mm) Dekoni Bulletz foam tips, thus making them hybrid tips. You do need the large size foam tips to fill out the Shure tips. Using the hybrid tips is the same as just using the Shure tips, but the isolation is quite a bit better. No modding...
Someone is making a "better mousetrap for sound"
I got a set of their protoype MEMS IEM's to try out... you will be able to hear a mouse coming... one clawed paw softly scratching after the other... mouse claw detail...
Wot he said,, well this is partway there...
