  1. We came to possibly the lamest conclusion, all three are pretty awesome. We had way different rankings I preferred the lcd5 of the three amd Mike the he1kse. The lcd5 to me was the most revealing of the three and had the wettest midrange. When a headphone out details the HE1kse that's impressive and the lcd5 did just that. I love the other two as well and could easily and very happily live with any of these. Hifiman wins for comfort and least picky of sources while holding its own in every audio category we compared them in. I do think the adx5000 is the mofo steal of the century at almost half the price of the HE1kse and less than half the price of the lcd5. Very very fast sounding extremely dynamic but can be slightly thin sounding. Both the adx5000 and lcd5 improve with eq and take eq well the HE1kse doesn't need much.
  2. Steel cage match between the Audio Technica ADX5000, Audeze LCD5 and HiFiman he1kse
  3. So sad to hear about this, Steve had a big impact on me with his generosity with his knowledge and friendship. His love of tape got me into needle drops as he explained some of the editing tools he used. He was also extremely funny, he had a great low key wit. Rest in peace Steve.
  4. Thanks folks just had a great dinner with friends from the UK that retired to Spain. Slightly jet lagged but still got my drink on.
  5. @screaming oranges lmk if you want to check it out? We can arrange to meet up if you'd like to give it a listen
  6. This makes the yggy GS model a no brainer
  7. I am absolutely blow away by the Matrix Mini pro 3. For $1000 or under you get a streamer (Roon, airplay), decent DAC and HPA. I currently have the Sonnet Morpheus and when I subbed in the Matrix, yes there was a different presentation IE the Matrix maybe having greater perceived detail and the Sonnet being more layered. It sounds like the Sonnet is deeper back to front and the Matrix is wider side to side. All in all if you blind compared them I am not sure you’d say one smoked the other. Used there are going for $750 or below if you get a chance try one. I would suggest using the LAN or I2S with the matrix x-spdif as the preferred way to feed it a signal. Anyone else out there try these? I’ve used the HE1000se, Grado old school sr125, HP1000 and some JH IEMs and in all cases the sound is pretty pretty good.
  8. Todd huge thanks for getting the site back up and running!!
  9. the other solution is to wear a pair of JH13 under the headphones that will solve the poor bass response as well as general crappy sound quality
  10. oddly I found the utopia to nor remind me of the OG 009 as the utopia didn't have that airy mist in the upper regions I got from the 009. Still a favorite of mine eve though my pair is now with Raffy
  11. well if you want to be that way πŸ™‚ super detailed with to be accurate tone and timbre, extremely fast. I liked the bass in that is went low enough for my tastes rock and jazz but was tight with detail (think being able to tell the difference between a fender jazz bass of p bass) I regret selling these to Raffy but you can't own all the headphones they were not peaky to me but one persons detailed is another peaky. Also F these new fuckers they also sound like this
  12. while not Bryan they are like super hot (you pick the gender) angels licking your ears and caressing your brain all at the same time

  19. has anyone fully built his amp up and would be willing to put together a second one for someone that is totally inept with a soldering iron and schematics, asking for a friend πŸ™‚
  20. soft sound, leading edge of notes are muted and to my ears lacks dynamics
  21. love the concept of Zu to sold on the endpoint of the Zu speakers. Not great all arounders, I had the soul superfly and great that it worked with my 300b amp but it really did impose its sound on the music anyone in Europe should check out System Audio or Amphion as a better value and more accurate sound. SA is more pleasing sounding Amphion in more studio monitor like
