I woke up before I could put any of them on.



I think I might be getting too into this.
Dude! That's just freakish! I had a dream last night that I left my duffle bag full of headphones on a sidewalk!

LMAO. I went back over to my grandpa's house today, only to discover that he wanted to seal them before doing the wax and polish. Sealer takes roughly 24 hours to set correctly, so I/we must wait until tomorrow for the unveiling. My apologies .

Awesome . You're only getting too into this when components costing a couple grand seem like a reasonable deal.

Nicely mixed considering it's a Metal album indeed. Not really a benchmark though, IMO.

I still plan on keeping them as backups ... but if someone offers me a decent USB DAC in trade ... then I might consider not having them for back up any more.



(I mean ... they're just sort of hanging off my shelf and all ... and although I do like them ... and don't want to sell them ... I would consider trading them for the right DAC).

wow, you paid way too much for those cans man. $600 for a $250 pair of cans... that cable isn't worth that much. I coulda gotten you the same thing with a solid silver cable for less... much less.


just found this:
http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f5/any...49/index2.html

dude, it's one thing when people have money to blow, but I hate to see noobs get taken advantage of like that. I've had people come to me asking for a recable on a good pair of cans and a suggestion on a $100 amp, I've told them to put their recable budget with their amp budget and come back when they'll be able to fully appreciate the new cable.

I don't always agree with a lot of head-fi'ers, but this time they're all correct. Send those cans back, buy a unmodded pair for $250, buy a $300 amp/DAC, then for the extra $140-240 if you really want modded cans send them to a DIY'er or someone who has more reasonable prices. Your rig will sound better and you'll have more, much more for your money.
