  1. A properly fitted qualia😀
  2. Speaking of measurements, just how much roll off are we talking at 20kHz and at what SPL?
  3. The email I sent you some time back should have pretty accurate dimensions. Birgir, how can you tell the diaphragm isn't gold plated? The sputtered coating should be so sparse as to be almost invisible in order to get really high resistance. Did they use graphite instead?
  4. Happy bday have fun with those drivers
  5. It'll be interesting to see how people take this Durant has been pampered by the media his entire career, westbrook has always been the fall guy. If people turn on him, I don’t think he’ll take it well. He has super thin skin. This is 10x worse than what people got mad at LeBron about. You just joined the best regular season team of all time AND it’s the team that just took you out of the playoffs in heartbreaking fashion. A large part of the reason that even happened is because Durant played like crap. I feel bad for OKC fans. This would be like Karl leaving my Jazz in his prime to join the Bulls after the 97 finals. An MVP joining the best team in the league after losing to them. I’ve always said that it’s the players’ right to join any team they want, this is just kinda sad imo.
  6. Thanks for the EtherE impressions, that's pretty much how I heard them too. They remind me much more of the KingSounds than Stax in terms of sound signature.
  7. Is there anything like that available for a small DIY Stax amp? Say, +/-200V
  8. Which doesn't really mean anything on its own. So are most of the PCBs for parts inside your cutting edge computer or cell phone. Just because something is made in China doesn't mean it's low quality, it's more about what you're willing to pay. In many (most) instances now, China actually has the resources to provide superior manufacturing, you just can't expect rock bottom prices. The 80s are over.
  9. Does he have an accent?
  10. The only way using a new set of plugs makes sense is if they plan to release a line of amps themselves or planned along with other manufacturers. I'm not sure how many amps they'll be able to sell considering they'll only be able to power Dan's stats. Seems like even a noob entering the stat game would be much more likely to pony up for the adapter and use a normal Stax jack amp to open up the possibility of using other stat HPs as well. I'm not seeing how changing the connector (by making it a different dimension or using wood etc) will make much difference in the overall capacitance of the headphones. The length of that bit is miniscule when compared to the overall length of the cable and the total capacitance added by the stators, and the dielectric constant of Teflon is already very low (2.1) and comparable to wood (1.4-2.9 in general).
  11. Great game, lebron is ridiculous.
  12. I dunno, I only hear about how injured Steph must be after he has mediocre games. All the injury talk disappears after his very good games. I think the physical style of the playoffs might not mesh so well with his game. He's getting held and bumped a lot more than he did during the regular season and hasn't really been effective at beating his man to get to the rim.
  13. Well there's also some guy working for LH Labs or one of those companies that's claiming to have designed the SR-009. I think when I looked into it, his time "working with Stax" was about 1-2 years after the 009 was even released.
  14. I don't think this is solely preferential treatment for the Cavs, rather the NBA trying to make more money. It was BS when Green didn't get suspended for that obvious nut kick when just 24h prior the NBA suspended a noname player on the Cavs (Dahntay Jones) for doing much less (grazing nuts with his hand). Of course, the NBA couldn't risk their cash cow Warriors to lose that quickly to OKC, so they didn't suspend Green since they were losing the series. Now that this looks to be over in 5 the NBA gives Green a cheap flagrant so the Cavs can hopefully prolong this series too. Really disappointing, I thought this kinda stuff was gonna go away when Stern retired.
  15. astrotard got a BHSE? I remember for months he'd post about how his KGSSHV is possibly as good as the BHSE (typical 'great in different ways' cop out) and that the BHSE may not be worth the increase in cost. Now that he's getting a BHSE, suddenly he wants to tell people their HV won't come close to the BHSE? How predictable and insecure. That thread is a steaming pile of crap and has been since the mods decided to protect the likes of astrotard, eric65, and Musical Alchemist from being shut up. I don't even know why purk and mulveling bother trying to help people there still. When the cargo is worthless, you may as well let the ship sink.
