Still waiting for my HiFiMANs, this company is terrible with shipping, even if it is coming from China or New York or wherever.
Any place where I can find trustworthy people who could buy my shit on the US and ship it to me? Seventyfive dorrah is way too may
Got these :) [B]Dunu Hephaes[/B] (too bassy for my taste but the build quality and looks are awesome) [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/psygeist/6856029061/][img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7205/6856029061_861b8176c6_z.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/psygeist/6856030935/][img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7061/6856030935_1cd6f16da9_z.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/psygeist/6856031385/][img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7205/6856031385_0827597af5_z.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/psygeist/6856032151/][img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7195/6856032151_6b5efe9f48_z.jpg[/img][/url] [B]Digizoid ZO2[/B] (miracle cure for missing bass punch in IEMs, totally blown away by the synergy with RE272 while playing Killing Floor) Low gain to high gain transition indicator: [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/psygeist/6856018677/][img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7043/6856018677_efb29afece_z.jpg[/img][/url] High Gain (for headphone out): [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/psygeist/6856020137/][img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7183/6856020137_74147e2226_z.jpg[/img][/url] First level contour (less bass), total 32 levels: [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/psygeist/6856021607/][img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7201/6856021607_2918f851b4_z.jpg[/img][/url] Medium level contour (less bass): [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/psygeist/6856024561/][img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7038/6856024561_b113beb8f5_z.jpg[/img][/url] Last level contour (less bass): [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/psygeist/6856027655/][img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7195/6856027655_e33fcb62b2_z.jpg[/img][/url] Multipurpose switch (on/off/gain switch/contour switch): [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/psygeist/6856012849/][img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7187/6856012849_dee6710fac_z.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/psygeist/6856015743/][img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7198/6856015743_686bdbcfb0_z.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/psygeist/6856014841/][img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7039/6856014841_3cd5cbf5ac_z.jpg[/img][/url] Accessories with Hephaes [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/psygeist/6856030105/][img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7181/6856030105_c566eb2b76_z.jpg[/img][/url] [editline]11th February 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=latin_geek;34648902]Any place where I can find trustworthy people who could buy my shit on the US and ship it to me? Seventyfive dorrah is way too may[/QUOTE] Head fi. I got my ZO2 that way, though I did buy Dunu Hephaes from him as a token of returning the favor.
Tempted to buy one of those ZO2.
i'm clearly very late to the party but what the hell do those things do
I believe they're some kind of amplifier with EQ functions.
I thought it was a mood amp. When you're banging your head it's black, when you're banging your gf th light turns red.
[QUOTE=Rusty100;34659153]i'm clearly very late to the party but what the hell do those things do[/QUOTE] Quoting from ClieOS review: [QUOTE]As far as my own opinion goes, ZO2.3, like the original ZO, is the miracle cure of poor bass response first, then an amp in second. Unlike most bass boost on portable amp that tends to add a bit of muddiness into the mix when it is over applied, the ZO2.3 with its SmartVektor has no such problem. Even on the max contour, the music retains its overall cleanness [url]http://www.inearmatters.net/2012/01/impression-digizoid-zo23-bass-deluxe.html[/url] [/QUOTE] [url]http://www.digizoid.com/zo/[/url]
I forgot to mention somthing. DO NOT GET THE SONY MRD-NC6'S. I got a free pair from my sister and i have to say they suck shit. They have bass, but they just sound like they don't.
I've been interested in the HD 558, but my dad told me that the cheaper HD 518 is adequate for my needs. I'm mainly gaming. Which one should I go for?
tell your dad to fuck off 558 foam strip mod get near 598 quality
So my shitty $10 headphones broke today when I accidentally pulled on the cord. I'm not sure what even broke, but the left speaker doesn't work. What is the best circumaural headphones that I can get for $30?
goddamnit, my JVC's were supposed to come on saturday, which the university mail room office isn't open on. Hope they don't dissapear into some amazon warehouse failed delivery black hole :(.
Oh my god my fucking ears. NO headphones in existence fits them. I've tried over 7 pairs of in-ear earphones and various normal earphones and they all just plop right off. My ear is small is shit. I've even tried the curvy ones where they wrap behind your ear. Nope still falls off. What else can I buy that fits me, thats also cheap? I have to resort to a behind-the-head headphones now, but I can't bring it along with me to school cause it takes up a fuck load of space.
[QUOTE=Odellus;34668954]tell your dad to fuck off 558 foam strip mod get near 598 quality[/QUOTE] But 518 is nearly great as 558 and 598.
I'm looking for a pair of headphones, under $25, that are comfortable enough that I can lie down in bed on my side with them on and sleep through the night. Quality is not as important as comfort in this case. Besides, it's only going to be plugged in to my phone.

Budget: $100 eBay: Yes Country: Australia Isolation: Closed Purpose: Music 50%, games 50% Music Tastes: Any form of techno (DnB, electro, house, dubstep, drumstep etc.), game OST Previous Experiences: Plantronics Gamecom 377 (fucking horrible), Logitech G35 (also fucking horrible) Comments: Looking to stop using this stupid headsets and all this 7.1 surround sound bullshit. I may be able to spend a little more dosh if it's worth it, but I still need to get a separate microphone.
HE-6s:
Holy shit you lucky bastard
Dear god that was awkward to watch. Congrats though, they'll be totally wasted if you're just plugging them into your soundcard though. (also don't send them back wtf bro)
Not effecient at all, speaker amplifiers are often used.
Why did they send you those exactly?
[QUOTE=SataniX;34692493]Why did they send you those exactly?[/QUOTE] Accident, I'm guessing.
I assume someone bought the HE-6s.
Get this [url]http://epiphany-acoustics.co.uk/our-products/ehp-o2-portable-audio-headphone-amplifier/[/url] and whatever else needed and never look back imo [editline]14th February 2012[/editline] Wait, if someone ordered those HE-6's and they mixed it up, then yea, return it, poor guy. If they just sent you those by mistake though fuck 'em and keep it. :getin:
If the guy who ordered HE-6s did get the 300s, HiFiMAN will send him another pair of HE-6s, I doubt me keeping these (if I do) will affect him at all other than waiting another few days for HE-6s.
