    Looks great, Doug. Goodbye, torpedo shape!

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Bol sans, kardesim. Whatever you're selling, I'm buying.

    Love it! You're a lifesaver. I just got an HD800 and a Focal Clear cable. I'm far past listening to different cables for differences, but Cardas is like the Le Creuset of their industry. I don't have to worry about whether it's the absolute best or whether it's going to break.

    K1000 successor Mysphere?

    I have fond memories of the old K1000, but I remember when Headroom couldn't sell them at MSRP, and was blowing them out for $500 a pair or so. The market for expensive headphones has grown since then, undoubtedly, but I don't think they stand a chance at $4000. It feels like a transparent cash grab, not a real product.

    Happy Birthday Spritzer

    Biggy, I'm woefully late, but a quick happy birthday from my wife, my daughter and I. We loved seeing you last month, and look forward to many more meetings.

    Happy Birthday Sherwood!

    I appreciate that, and appreciate the opportunity it afforded me to explain Dolan to my wife.

    Happy Birthday Sherwood!

    That America Mohawk is something to which I can aspire, Grahame. Thank you all for the well-wishes. My wife got me an appointment in a sensory deprivation tank for my birthday, which is a phenomenal present.

  11. I've been putting in a lot of hours with the Focal Clear on my L2 -- reasonably good match on low output impedance, very poor match on high impedance. I can't remember hearing another headphone so sensitive to high output impedance before, but it screws the bass all up. Understanding now why you make a DSHA-3F version, Doug.

    Hey Head-Case, what's your bandwidth like?

    Edit: I posted a very fast speed, then realized I already posted here months ago. Mine is still not the fastest, so who gives a shit.

    Post what you're watching

    I'm with Dusty, love the show. I have a longstanding affinity for Joel Kinnaman, though, so I'm biased.
  14. Agreed on both. I was listening to "I Won't Lie to You" for the second time in a row when I came to this thread. The Peter Gabriel feeling never goes away, but as Dusty alluded to it never feels bad either. No one can really "live up" to Peter Gabriel, but Francis gives it a respectable go.

    Sennheiser HD 820 closed-back flagship

    At the moment I work in a SCIF and can’t bring in a phone, Fitbit, etc. When I stop working with classified stuff I’ll be able to bring in whatever, but for the time being we’re pretending to stop the Russians from spying. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
