  1. Ok, I don't understand. I deleted these tags. I don't know if tags make sense or not. I am quite a forum newbie and have no experience with forums and tags. So, I apologize if I did anything wrong. I was not aware by the way! I never posted this question at any other forum or place, grawk! TLDR? OK, I understand ... But I am really embarrased. No, it's much more , I am really dissapointed deeply in my heart, how unfriendly and aggressive the people in this forum are. What is going on here?? One posts a topic which could be of general interest (I thought it would be of general i
  2. Hi All, I would like to raise the issue on human ageing, with the special focus on the ageing of human hearing and the use of TOTL headphone gear, i.e. headphones for more than 2,000 Euros, e.g. STAX headphones for 5,000 Euros and headphone amplifiers within the same region (5,000 Euros). But this does not focus at Stax only, of course, as there are so many extremely expensive headphones (electrostatic, magnetostatic, dynamic) in the market right now. I don't know how old you are, of course all ages are represented here at the forum. But I also find old headphone veterans, here
  3. Hi tomislavkufrin, where can I find the schematic and a DIY assembly kit? Or a bill of material and the right circuit board for DIY? Do you have links where I can purchase a circuit board and maybe a DIY kit? That would be really cool 🙂. And how many bucks do you think such a DIY approach would cost? Thanks in advance, Cheers, Werner
  4. Hi Ranjan, thank you very much for your kind posting and your very kind offer that I am allowed to quoting your recommendation when contacting the 'Hifi Lounge' Dealer. Oh yes, maybe I will do this! Not right now (as being too absorbed by job at the time being, but this might calm down in the future, I hope 😉) but in some months it could really be an excellent approach. Regarding EQ to Harman Target, I really like this approach! As EQ'ing at upscaled 96kHz(or more) and 24 bits can be directly performed on your uncompressed digital music files without any loss of sonic qua
  5. Yes, you are right, listening, testing and comparing oneself is maybe the only real solution. And indeed reading through 500 pages of a huge forum's thread having run over years, costs a lot of time. Partly really interesting and well invested time, but of course not over the entire 500 pages. However, it is partly really good fun to read the comments at head-case or head-fi. Having said that, regarding ordering a headphone from a dealer, then testing it at home and sending it back, is something I do not really like to do. Because when you order it, you will receive a completely new
  6. Thanks a lot for that link. However, my two major questions are not tackled there (or maybe I oversaw it? Sorry, if I should be wrong!): 1) Is STAX SR-009s really better than SR-009 as Stax marketing claims? Golden stators, rounded holes for better airflow? I mean regarding sonic quality. 2) Frank Cooter's 845 directly heated amp (praised by Jude Mantilla / Head-Fi and others): How does it perform compared to BHSE, KG GG, DIY T2, Woo Audio WES ? Have these both questions already been tackled by your link? But on already mentioned topics: This is alwa
  7. Yes, Mach3, I fully agree with you. I hoped for some confirmation and backing by expertise for my pure guess. It was really only a guess because I never had any HiFiMan (or CheapFiMan , I like it .... cheap but very expensive...) in my hands. As Birgir already took HiFiMan headphones completely apart, I could now learn from his postings what cheap build quality is inside. And of course, I never listend to any HiFiMan, so any opinions and experiences like yours help me, here. And yes, how to test and compare when things are so extremely expensive and difficult to find as a demo devic
  8. ... Vegas ... ... slowly, I begin to understand the idea ... ... seems to be the purest fun, here on this channel. Cheers
  9. Thank you, grawk, for your kind reply. This makes "my world" right and perfect again 🙂 Because today, I was a bit shocked about the rude reactions and posts without answers but only playing jokes on me although I did not have had anything bad in mind. I am a novice with too little knowledge on this forum. However, I had read already many articles and posts on headphones, amplifiers, Stax and other audio stuff at head-case before, so I thought it was a forum like head-fi. So, it was only a misunderstanding by me. I also always enjoyed the interesting posts and
  10. OK, I have looked through this forum and found 90% things that have nothing to do with headphones, audio gear, DIY and all that what I thought would be in the scope of this forum. What I mainly found is: This is quite a weird topical scope ... So, I would expect the mentioned nude photos, indeed, at this forum 😉 Never mind, please forgive me bloody novice that I did not know that considerations on headphones shall not be placed at this forum .... 😉
  11. First of all thank you for this good hint! This helps a lot. I will search through that other forum (an maybe could also open such a thread there). However, I have a question: If this forum here (head-case) is not talking about comparisons between different headphones and on impressions on sound quality of headphones, on what is this forum about?? The question I rose by this thread was not only to ask for a personal recommendation but also to fuel the general discussion on Hifiman Susvara versus Stax. This should be a topic of general interest for headphone afficionados. Or am I wron
  12. Hi spritzer, hi blockader, thanks a lot for your postings, they put things into perspective. Especially, the concrete ranking of you with regards to resolution and imaging helps me a lot to putting this hype babbling around Susvara into perspective. And yes, I agree with you, "musicality", "liveliness", these are strange means for characterization, indeed "mumbo jumbo". @spritzer: What are your primary concerns against the stuff from HifiMan? It sounds to be a very strong opinion, and not only on small issues but quite in general. Bad build quality? Also concerns on sonic quality (at
  13. Hi guys, during the last five years, so many new TOTL headphones appeared in the market that I got totally lost how they compare. Because every brand claims that its own TOTL headphone is the best of the world. But also reviewers and people from the forums claim very different views. This is of course quite normal and maybe opening this thread might be very silly as things might have been said thousands of times already here. However, as a newbie on this forum I did not find real impressions especially on the HifiMan SUSVARA, especially when compared to STAX. And in additio
