French press coffee and some Prestige Filled Biscuits with Plum marmelade :)
PortaPro Classic -especially after some mods and earfoam-recabling stuff- still sounds very very good to me. I love its retro style too ;)
New photo, but with some retro effects using Snapseed and some lighting effects using Photoshop ;)

DIY hybrid ear tips
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 necessary for...

Looking for OPPO PMs -- Do you want to sell your pair?
Hi There, I lost my Steel Blue OPPO PM-3s in a tragic event a few months ago. (Car got stolen, got car back, headphones were gone, only thing I really wanted back). I'm interested in finding a new pair, and I'd really love the red ones or the blue ones. You can't buy them new any more, but if anyone has a used pair they'd be willing to unload, here's a buyer for you...

Massdrop x Sennheiser HE 0X Electrostatic System
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,...

Amp to Pair with Focal Elex
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 Vali 2 Valhalla 2 Liquid Carbon X Lyr 3 My budget is 300 dollars, and I'm very willing to look at used items!

Question: Why can't I ship the Sennheiser 6XX to Australia?
When I go to Checkout with these Headphones, or any others, Australia doesn't appear as a country available.

USB DAC with stereo TRS outputs + Headphone jack
I've got an MBox Pro driving my KRK Rokit 8 monitors via TRS cable, and it's great, but there haven't been new drivers in ages and it has to be restarted frequently at best (because the sound will cut out or just not come through) and the drivers cause BSODs occasionally at worst. Since I don't really use it for recording anymore, I'm hoping to find something much simpler that uses USB instead of firewire and would hopefully be more stable. Everything offered on Drop so far seems to be RCA and I'd much prefer to have a balanced connection. Any suggestions for what I'm looking for? Thanks in advance!
