  1. I was really gutted to read about what happened. I don’t have a clue how some of you guys manage to disassemble these expensive toys with such nonchalance. I have the manual dexterity of a rhino and was sweating bullets when I did Spritzer’s port mod to my 007 mk2s.
  2. Same here. Initial impressions beginning to filter through all appear quite positive but I will wait until a real impartial description is posted by Birgir or someone trusted. I’m curious to know how they compare to the other Stax offerings and the CRBN, but not in a hurry to get them, working my way to a Carbon CC for now.
  3. The above is one of the better ones I had seen, it goes into details about removing the adhesive
  4. I have seen videos on YouTube explaining how to replace ear pads on their planar magnetic headphones and the comments were that the glue residue is not as difficult to remove as many believe.
  5. I was listening to them again last night and I really love what the 007s do, there is simply no comparison between them and the Audeze's I had before (which actually cost more, albeit without needing an amplifier to drive them). It is true that maybe they "harden" a tiny little bit when the volume is a bit louder, maybe its just my hearing. If only I could find a suitable amp to drive them to their full potential…...😜. Anyway back to the CRBN
  6. I was thinking the same thing but my worry (however premature) is that eventually Stax may retire them. If someone wanted to hoard them as an eventual replacement does anybody have any idea as to how long they could/would survive unopened in their box? Any ideas about the life expectancy of a pair in normal weekly use?
  7. I genuinely cannot understand why some people would even contest your and Spritzer's findings, especially with all the photographic evidence provided. I appreciate that a scammer feels the need to protect his imagine in order to continue making money but to come on a place like this (of all the forums) and peddle this moronic BS beggars belief. The more these things are reported the better off we will all be, however much these people/companies disappear and then pop back up.
  8. I’m using one of his modified SRM-717s and I’m actually really happy with it and the advice he gave me (especially considering it was initially going to be paired to an L700 and not the 007 mk2s as I was initially looking for an electrostatic alternative to my Audeze planar magnetics, not to actually replacing them, which is what I ended up doing because to my ears they didn’t sound as good as the Stax). But then as I got into it more and from what I have read here and elsewhere and discussing the situation with him I know I can do better and that is what I’m aiming to do. Fortunately I have started working again after a year of being stuck home so buying a carbon or a carbon CC is now much more than just a pipe dream and however good the X9000 may be the amplifier is my next upgrade. Hopefully by Christmas 🎄
  9. Thanks so much (as always) for your help!
  10. Thanks Spritzer, it’s not a huge change but enough to be noticeable on some tracks. So am I correct in thinking that on top of all the other benefits of the Carbon that we discussed, the increased current availability from it would also help resolve that issue?
  11. One thing I personally notice listening to the 007mk2 is that when I crank the volume a little higher than my usual they seem to sound a bit little bit muddier/lose resolution. Is this a physical limitation of the headphones or could it be that the amp runs out of steam at higher volumes?
  12. is there any news about reviews in English as I'm not finding much on google? I know they will all say they are the best ever but at least to get an idea.
  13. sorry to raise this from so long ago, but did a portable amp for the Shure's ever happen?
  14. Got it, thanks very much. Looking forward to seeing your additional posts.
  15. iStax X (in two different sizes) and a slightly cheaper version called iStax XR….🤣
  16. Thanks very much for the feedback. For someone having to decide between the 007’s and the CRBNs, considering the similarity of the sound signature but the difference in price, what advice would you give ?
  17. Could you let me know how are you finding the treble sound compared to the 007 mk2s (and would your comparison be pertinent to the modified SRM-717 I have?) Thanks.
  18. 10k$ or MOAR you mean...🤪 I must admit between this and the CRBN there seems to be interesting stuff happening from the more serious players in the business.
  19. I didn’t mean resistance from you, I meant from the shill called “Not Deaf”.
  20. Someone asked about JR Audio on “that other site” in the Audeze CRBN thread and someone else intervened in typical shill fashion waxing lyrical about them and how his “electrical engineer friend” or some such says they are marvellous. I wanted to intervene but had already deleted my account and only lurk there occasionally as a guest. Fortunately Paradoxper intervened and straightened the whole thing out, but not without some resistance. Looks like getting the truth to people has become a real uphill struggle in some places.
  21. Hi @spritzerDid they sound bright with the foam tips or the silicone ones? I found the foam ones (comply) or the shure yellow ones ever so slightly dark but the silicone tips from spin fit just a bit too bright on some types of music. I’m Wondering if there are any “Goldilocks” alternatives (using the kse1200, not the 1500).
  22. What exactly is the advantage of embedding graphene into the membrane? Does anyone have any idea?
