Z1R hurt my jaw after a while, just sat wrong for my head shape. Sounded ok though.
is Snufkin no longer present on OCAU? I'm in need of a spare part for my DT250's, but Beyerdynamic US and EU are telling me I have to source my spares from an Australian source
Syntec bud. Australian distributors, have all the Beyer and parts. Good to deal with. Google their website
Otherwise Minidisc or A2A can probably order then in too for you.
Cheers mate. So, I got in touch with Syntec...
Cost of part = $6.50'ish
Shipping (from Sydney to Brisbane) = $16.50
What on earth? it's a 5mm thick plastic part, with a length and width no bigger than a credit card
Ask nicely again for them to stick it in an envelope.
They have sent me $80 earpads before for free because I asked if they had any other options...
Had no luck. They told me the shipping cost is standard, and if I don't wanna pay the cost, I can try find stock elsewhere.
I did find stock locally in Brisbane, but alas, the cost is $16.50 for me to pick up. Cheaper than Syntec's price, but obviously inflated above cost price...
Find an OCAU member to buy and send it to you.
Best airport style headphones for the wife?
I've found that sound have a nice pair and so do senheiser? Spelling...
But I've ran audio technica gear and loved it, so I'm leaning towards their model.
Looking for a upgrade from my Denon D5000 which have served me well for 7 years. Looking to take it to the next level and noticed that Denon have picked up their game after the meh D7100 with the new D7200.
I'm looking for something between $1000 and $2000.
I'm currently running a Marantz HD-AMP1 for headphone and speaker duties.
Right now the contenders are the Denon D7200 and the Fostex Th900mk2.
Any others I should be considering that have a closed design and less aggressive treble characteristics?
Aeon Closed / Ether C Flow (not bassy)
The tH900 is probably a suitable upgrade over the D5000. It’s been about 6-7 years since I’ve last heard a D5k, open back modded and ones with Lawton Audio mod + cups.
I hadn't considered the Sonys, I'll definitely have a look at them.
Interesting that they converted them to a open back design, I would expect they lost a lot of bass response with that mod.
Z1R is a decent option. Definitely try them if you can, and if you can try for a good amount of time.
Very hard to find places to demo such high end cans. I am going to japan in March, already have a place in mind to do some listening. Not ideal conditions but better than nothing.
Japan prices aren't that great atm, AUD to JPY is bad, Japan is good if looking for rare or old stuff.
Conversely aussie stock is pretty good, if can find similar as a DEMO, having local warranty is a bonus
Came across this, it's FREQ graphs of IEM's, and they have alot of latest gear tested, like 2019 CANJAM products too.
I checked a few things I was thinking about getting, turned out that one which is $650 and graph looking like a $3k one, so I picked well before even reading a stack of reviews, jus general chatter.
Found a aussie distro for RAAL headphones, I have no amp but the hardest bit is buying them first right..
RAD-0 ex-Audeze guy builds his own headphone, great idea, shame about the execution......2600 USD...677gm
Anyone know of HE-5 earpads with a bigger ear hole, factory is too small on me.
Black Friday sales should be soon...
Dudes, my son is looking at upgrading his headset (currently G933) so what would you guys recommend as an upgrade from that level (mostly gaming, so he needs a mic)? Do we need a sound card, amp, DAC? Im sorry I dont know what the are needed for as usb just plugs in and works, so is the extra investment worth the gain?
Audio noob here so go easy on the replies.
At ath dg1 the current models.
Almost anything would be an upgrade form the G933, could always go with a separate mic and then your free to use whichever headphones the user likes. I really dislike the clackity noisy G933's, they do have pretty RGB lights though lol. Mine stay hanging lonely being unloved.
As to the Audio Technica current range mentioned above : ATH-ADG1X (Open) or ATH-AG1X (closed back) both around 50 ohm, If they have to be wireless like the G933 then ATH-G1WL 45 ohm.. The models down from those would be the ATH-PDG1 (open) or ATH-PG1 (closed) both around 40 ohm in Audio Technica's gaming range.
Beyer MMX300 MK2
Added bonus of being closed, so don't leak, and they are actually a good musical headphone (DT770).
Well. Just ordered a pair of Elegia. $599 delivered, hard to pass up. Do the job as a decent closed back for when I need closed.
