    Welp, found a use case for a pair of ZMF Classics I bought from here last summer.

      With the winter we’re having, riding outside is pretty rare, so it’s usually 3x/week in the basement on the trainer. Most of my headphones are open back, too much trainer & fan noise comes through. Didn’t really like the Classics, too bassy for me. But I tried them this week, and damn if they don’t sound great on the trainer. Not sure why, but I’ll take it. Music is all that gets me through longer sessions.

    Gaudio Nair. Satisfying. Thought to myself, "Not sure why I'd ever get rid of these." Mostly classical so far but very promising...

    I'm not saying it's @Azimuth's fault I have a package of ECC84 tubes on my desk, but if anyone asks, the blame is going that way.

      Amazing how many high ohm or power hungry headphones sound very nice out of the RU6. The good synergy goes far beyond what the designers intended.

      BP800. @Bill-P said he'll send one on loaner tour, but I can send you mine if there is much delay. I'm no lvl42 mod wizard so I'd suggest waiting for his.

      @E_Schaaf Fair point. And I've never been able to real apple to apple comparison. But a series of bad memories discourage. Maybe I am more skillful now than before, but wasn't happy with anything I eqed. On non-eq front, all the mods I heard or owned could not pass sibilance and shoutiness tests.

      @Philimon Tour will be interesting. I'll definitely join. As of now, however, I don't regard its comfort any higher than Eta Genesis. 6x0 headband is what I'd immediately avoid for now (hate pressure points on top). No matter how great they may sound.

    I still think 800's ergonomics is way better than 6x0's. The former fairly comfortable while the latter unacceptable. Might be the only guy.

    2. Ksorota
      I agree with this to some extend. 6X0 eventually gets to a great comfort level with some stretching of the band. The 800 starts off very comfortable and disappears on your head faster.

      6X0 clamp is strong and the pads are pretty stiff as well. So yes, very uncomfortable when new. Needs break-in. Cup articulation is good but maybe you need more?

      Hopefully not the wrong place to ask but there's no thread yet so: I'm assuming this is the evolution of the same supra-aural you guys had at socal meet. Are there any plans to make the same sounding headphone in a HD600 series compatible headband + cup?

      Apologies in advance if this is addressed elsewhere and I missed it.

      SilentPC a great option. I built a fanless PC in a regular case using the Nofan CR-80EH with some quiet fans that are basically silent at <400rpm. I'm using the recent Intel temperature throttling to control temps. If there's just music playing I can shut the fans off completely without issue.

      I use Wise (nee Transferwise) to send money from GB to India. They changed their name quite some time back.

      Yes, it is a good service. But it is aimed at financial transfer only, and I don't think there are any buyer/seller mechanisms or protections built in.

      Wise has worked well for me with international xfers both coming and going; I don't think they offer paypal-style buyer protection.

      thank guys. I'm trying to sell something to the US buyer hence that's why i'm looking for mutual protection. I did have good experience with Wise though (unless Paypal who charge me $30 on a $300 transaction lately and is just douchey in general)

    After hours of iterative eq experiments, 8xx finally begins to sound awesome. The best sounding Senn to say the least. Out of non-uber amps!

      Maybe they can come up with a new bad name every year, then abandon it 2 games into the season and go back to Football Team.

      I don't think they reveal the new name until early Feb... but I guess someone could have leaked it to see what the reaction is. Personally, I'd go with the current WFT, because I'm sure a lot of their fans go WTF WFT?!?! after their games.

      Should have called them the Comanches because the Comanches were fierce bad asses and prevented western expansion for so long.
