Maybe someday I'll have a boatload of cash and settle for the ZD as a preamp in tandem with my main amp .

I haven't heard the Zana, which is probably a good thing for my wallet.

yea i have been listening to them for about 6 hours now... sounds a step up from my old ATH pro700 but yea think an amp should do it more justice... but i have to say its really comfortable so far.. 10/10 for comfort..

Thanks . No one knows what they look like just yet but we'll get to see them at Can Jam. I'm really looking forward to getting them. It's times like this that make the long hours I work sooo worth it.

****e... just placed an order for asus essence to tide me over till i can buy a proper amp... my wallet is dying. audio is expensive lol.

Congrats Julian, if I had the spare cash I'd have probably ordered as well. As it is, $429 is a tough pill to swallow for a headphone that doesn't guarantee refinement matching the reference series (RS1/2). Hopefully it's worth the additional cost over the HF-1's original price, I guess everyone will find out in LA.

HD600 arrives tomorrow, looking forward to blasting some metal, which I've found is the only genre that really shows the leanness of my speakers in the low end. Double bass rolls are a tricky little devil to match up with my preferences.

And yes, that's a Woo stand... new version with the curved headphone rest at the top as opposed to the pole that they used to offer.




Thank you! Yes, I am sure Joel will be by soon to either confirm or disown me.
WOOT!

Joel must like spending your money for you. Bringing you to OCN is just makes the "hobby hole" in your wallet get even bigger!

I found a good deal on a pair of Audio Technica ATH-A700's, as well as a good deal on a pair of the Denon AH-D1001's, so now I'll think about it, and buy one.


Just out of curiosity, does anyone know of a (Or Few) decent IEM's that can reproduce [Comfort Levels/Sound Quality/Bass] of a good pair of headphones? (Under $130 USD inc shipping)

Cheers, and thank you very much for the help so far.
Computing is one thing, but good Audio is new to me, it just makes sense, so I want to learn and acquire!

P.S In case you didn't know/read, I'm Australian, so some links are useless to me. (NewEgg/Amazon etc...)
