    The Headcase Stax thread

    Not to mention cable entry durability as padam said. I'd just get an in-production model (MK2 or A, same thing but different colors and prices since the latter is from Japan). Sounds amazing, also less laid back treble response which I say is a good thing (I find it more natural). And it's built to last.

    Argentina and Brazil performances were disappointing. Maybe debut's anxiety? We'll find out soon.

    Thanks for the condolences everyone. Xavier and I are back on the trails, though. Went out for a father's day ride. Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk

    and now for something completely different part 3

    Got my Uberamp boards. Here's my version of BOM if it helps anybody: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1EIAvFJHqTJL5zzM43FIhz-wJhd_scJiClbLd24QNv9s/edit?usp=sharing Here are a few questions: 1 Power rating of the big .47 resistors. The best option for 10W seems to be this: https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Xicon/280-CR10-047-RC?qs=sGAEpiMZZMtbXrIkmrvidMioh4DscLtBmqbN3KPTLlY%3d Although the lead space is shorter than the length of the resistor. There are a lot more options at 5W. 2 What's the 5k trim pot for? 3 How to wire it for balanced setup (2 boards per channel)? Also what are +/- reg drvier for?

    3D Headphones Startup Shutters

    This stuff has happened before. https://domaingang.com/domain-news/soundfocus-to-file-for-bankruptcy-amp-audio-device-ditched/ I backed this project when it was heavily advertised. Safe to say I won't be backing any company no more. Unless they introduce new laws to protect the consumers.

    Watches

    I'm unsure of why the Kay Outlet had the Oris Thelonious Monk LE on clearance, let alone why they have Oris watches when Kay proper doesn't, but I had a bunch of Kay certificates that were about to expire (all those Bulova limited editions bought from Kay for crazy low prices, if you remember), so on June 20th, that Oris Thelonious Monk LE will be mine. I've always really liked this watch, but never pulled the trigger. For $600, brand new? Yes please.

    Brazil played uncoordinated. They're good football players individually, but they don't seem to build pressure and good goal chances. Did anyone watch how Germany lost?

    It's not just a question of Mk1 or Mk2. If I counted them right in total there are three versions of each (plus the 'Mk2' vs 'A' paint scheme) But generally they all sound like SR-007s, so just get one for a good price which you can resell if you don't like it. The cable entry can fail on the Mk1, but it's not something that can't be fixed. And if you need replacement head- or earpads, they are only available in black color.

    What are you listening to Part the Third

    Yeah Yeah Yeahs – It's Blitz! I haven't listened to this one for a while... this is one of the rare occasions where the music critics and I agree (it made almost all the Best Albums of the Year lists when it was released). A gorgeous, exciting listen with impressive polish throughout. Just epic.

    Gilliab Welch Harrow and the Harvest on vinyl. Not really into the whole folk/minimal thing but got this on recommendation and it’s fantastic. Sound quality is exquisite - Gillian essentially started up her on label specifically to cut and master the lacquer directly from the analog tape to her specifications, it’s incredible.

    I'll keep it in mind if I ever go the noise cancellation route again. Every once in a while, my office mates get so rowdy that even my headphones don't mute them out.

    Yeah, but the level of customization through the app is remarkable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    you don't even need the app. Hold the selector button for 2 seconds, and it does it in headphone. And Dusty, you have the choice between silence or just background noise elimination.

    I'm looking to get a pair of SR-007. Should I be searching for the MK1 or would I be better off getting the MK2 and doing the port mod. My main concern with the MK1 is the channel imbalance & driver failure. But I hear people say the MK1 offer better sound stage.

    What are you EATING right now?

    Ribeyes make everything better. Wine, not so much (for me, anyway).

    Sounds like you needed steak and wine therapy quite badly

    They are pretty good at customizing the level of noise suppression. There is an iOS app that pairs with the headphones and samples the air pressure around you (let’s say for airplane use for instance,) surroundings noise level and then applies your preferences. It is very good. Battery lasts long as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Fucking great set this week, Knucks.

    Unholy carp, really? Tell me more. My one experience with noise-cancelling headphones is that they seem to actually make conversations happening near me worse by eliminating all the background noise. That said, I'm happy with the isolating capabilities of the DT1770, so this will probably not lead to a purchase, but I am still curious.

    I have been lucky thus far with the airpods and doing laundry, but I have washed, unintentionally, the regular apple earbuds several times in different conditions and they remain. glad to hear they survived. I have switched to the sony WH1000XM2 for doing stuff around the house. Likely, it could be the zombie apocalypse going on around me, I would not notice.
