    V2 changes, anodized black frame, pad angle increased, and replace cable sleeving for annoying rubber tubing. 1k added to price for these improvements...

    Your description has them moving the tonality toward that of the 007? Do you think it retained the detail level and sound staging of the 009? It is looking like these will pair well with a BHSE :-)

    ^^ I feel like I have missed something.

    Are you talking about his reviews or actually dissembling things!
  5. HiFiMAN Shangri-la Jr. Electrostatic Headphones

    A case of better than crap is still crap, with regard to build quality? I liked the HeK v2 out of the GSX MKii and it was very comfortable to me.

    I assume the SRM-T2 isn't being counted because of its pension for self destructing?

    You would be shocked at the amount of companies do half assed in house translations.
  8. HiFiMAN Shangri-la Jr. Electrostatic Headphones

    Yea the pictures make the build look the same. I think we are long past hoping that hifiman will up the build quality no matter how far they escalate the price. The drivers for the big Shangri la look to be a fair bit larger and in a housing that resembles the HEK.

    Now I am not in anyway implying that they are worth the price, but this does make me hope that some of the fullsize Shangrila headphones make it into the wild for impressions.

    Between this and the t8000 you have been duped into over 10k worth of impossible to unload gear ;/ Can't wait to hear your impressions on their sound.

    Do we have a confirmation of these yet? I still see nothing on an official page or account.

    The alcohol content was meant to part of an overall theme of lack of sophistication about where I live. So apparently I swung and missed. Also believe it or not, even though both are 190 so pretty much pure alcohol. Gem clear is somehow hands down worse to drink.
  13. The Headcase Stax thread

    Best bang for the buck, my vote is going to 'Gem Clear' .. for those of us too cheap to splurge on 'Everclear' ! Special vote also goes to anything that comes in an unlabeled repurposed gallon of water or milk. BBW Well for myself, along with all the very sophisticated people living in small mountain towns across 'merica.

    I quick test on my system with BHSE and 007mk2.9 says this is a problem with a component in your chain. With hard diving edm/pop at volumes that made me cringe I experience no distortion. Fwiw I ride motorcycles all the time and my wife thinks I'm deaf. My normal listening volume is determined by her yelling across the house at me. Ymmv.

    I'd guess when the next flagship arrives it's a 50 / 50 that they keep the current 009. Their habit has been to discontinue the old flagship. The 007mkii is the exception.
