Sorry for the late response. If you want to see someone do it, look for "diy cable coiling" by a guy named "CruzCtrl" But this is how I did it :) I looped it around a steel bar as tight as I could, securing the ends of the cable with tape so they don't come loose, then heat it with a heat gun at 150 °C and about 10cm apart from it, constantly moving the heat gun so the cable doesn't get burn, do that for about 2 minutes and leave it cool down. Repeat the process of heating and letting it cool 3 to 5 times, the final step is to just leave it for 12 to 24 hours, take the tape off and enjoy your new coil :D

An upgrade to my Little Dot MKII
I made the decision to upgrade my modest Little Dot MKII Tube Amplifier this past week and it just got here yesterday. This is a used piece of gear, it's the first generation Woo Audio WA6. I wanted to go with Silver as it would match my Solid State Burson Conductor 3 Performance Headphone Amp/DAC/Pre-Amp, as well as the Schiit Lokius I also picked up recently. I wound up with Black; it was in the best condition of those I saw available, it was priced better and it came from an audio dealership with a brick & mortar store which displayed a working telephone number and an A+ rating with the BBB so I knew that I was probably safe in dealing with the gentleman. The Lokius is brand new. What I've learned is that I am going to have to do some figuring out how to deal with all of this new stuff, including how to get it all onto my 6 foot desk along with my lamp and modem. Apparently the Lokius has to be connected between Amp and DAC, so it would fit in between...

Best imaging and soundstage headphones for positioning and immersion?
I was looking at He4XX and K7XX mainly, but I was going to use these mostly for gaming and some music, which means overall imaging is the most important, but I also wouldn't want a headphone that's too boring. Thank you for any help. Edit: My previous headphones were Sennheiser G4ME One's, I'd want comparable or better performance.
