    I do not think that Hifiman has the same fate as Cavalli. Maybe they give up electrostatic headphones but I doubt they will disappear from the headphone business.

     

    No but they may continue to mass produce unreliable or quickly outdated garbage. When they announced the HE1k with v2 and so forth, they pissed off alot of people on HF.

  2. Thanks @Anna

     

    I know Guillaume and the owner George at A2A, they're good blokes but again its his opinion what he thinks of the Hifiman headphones and I know the top end models don't sell alot. 

    Aside from reliability and QC issues Hifiman headphones exhibit the second biggest issue with there headphone range is the sell and dump scheme they've adopted. None of there headphones hold value because they release revised iterations shortly after a headphone is announced and sold to the general public. 

    Same concept Cavalli Audio had with there amplifiers and it pissed off a lot of early preorder adopters who paid full price. Now Cavalli Audio is no more. 

  3. Sounds promising. But the proof in the pudding is the final product when they start flying off the shelves to the customers heads. Anyways I'll be putting down my interest for a unit when they are released. 

    You've nailed quite a few good points about the headphone industry (actually the audio industry in general). 

     

    Cheers

    Flippers like wkitor will never have enough money to win such an auction facing Chinese collectors like the one this time who have bought the two omega and the t2 all by himself.

    He said he would like to have a comparison on omegas from two era (early and late version perhapes) on a t2.

    How would you know wiktor doesn’t have enough money to win such auctions? He’s been flipping many HE90/HEV90’s, Stax Omega/T2’s and other stuff for a very very long time even before he was a registered user on headfi. He is the only person I know who has owned more than 6 sets of HE90 and HEV90’s and many pairs of Stax Omegas etc. The collectors from Asia have nothing on him in comparison is what I’d say.

  5. Very sad to see IP theft going on here and one which does not even make reference to KG as the original source.

    I think its time to make these threads, pictures and content registered user viewable only and only for those that have 100 + posts.

  6. First off fuck Jude and head-fi, if you really want a good reception for your electrostats, talk to folks who are very intimate with e-stat gear, Birgir (aka spritzer), Kevin and Wachara, if you pass the test and take on feedback for any constructive criticism (feedback) from them, then I'm sure people will like what they will hear. Before any of this happens, you have to cut the bullshit first followed by facts.

    Though I have to be honest, the headphones do look kind of cheaply designed and built.

    Well they are wood and what looks like coat hanger so that will have the hipster crowed locked up. It also looks like he has a diy stats amp/stand made of wood. 

    Looks like they just copied what Wachara did when he made his Omega and HE90 clones years ago.

    Smells like they will be a piece of shit and suffer some driver problems as they look very cheap and DIY'ish.

  8. Considering the original K1000's fetch from anywhere between $1900-3000USD nowadays on popular auction/audio sale sites I'd say it's not that big of a jump if one is selling to one to buy the new successor. It does look like a flimsy piece of shit though.

    He can't, because they've already established relations with HF. HF hates SBAF to the core. You can't even link to SBAF in HF threads. I did it once and I got a pm by a mod saying I can't do some things. Imagine hating another forum which has I think less than a quarter for your traffic, and then seeing your good friend go there to market his products. HF is gonna do a temper tantrum.

    They salty as fuck.

    Nah it's not really about hate and the whole censorship with prevention of linking to other headphone related audio sites and prohibited to do so on HF has been around for many many years, if you make links to this site, changstar and sbaf (both sites owned by purrin aka Marv) you'd get a warning. Apart from maybe a small handful of people HF whose opinions, ideas and experiences I respect, everybody on here and sbaf know that the majority of popular posters (esp ones that start hype trains) on HF are clueless fucking morons and that is the way Jude and Co. likes the site's audience to be comprised of.

    Sucks that dshill84 and shillchu were once part of the OG ortho crew along with wualta, bjarne, jadeeast, ericj, Faust, me, etc. I feel mildly guilty by association. Shillchu was already flipping orthos back then, come to think of it. 

    Funny thing is NoNoNoNoNoNo used to trash ortho classifieds because people were selling them at high prices, this was circa. 2012-13 or so. There's probably a good reason why those ortho crew guys are rarely on HF at all.
