A very good sport - Friend, Male, from Seattle, WA

Just received the Fluance RT85 in the hizzie. This is my first foray into the turntable world. So far i'm quite impressed with the sound. Apr 24, 2020

      I have the HiFiMan Sundara in house. It sounds pretty good, however I am surprised to note that the bass seems a tad light. Anyone else?

        Eikon pads were a recommendation just off the top of my head - haven't pad rolled on the Sundara specifically, but from what I know of how the pads affect the sound and the response of the Sundara I was thinking those might be a good fit... now that I think about it Ori pads might be better though. I don't bother with the rings, they're too hard to deal with. I just cover the housing with double stick tape.

        What's your take on Ananda relative to Sundara? Those are creeping down into the $600-$700 range now.

        I liked the Ananda a lot. I would have kept it but for me it didn't fit on my head/ears comfortably. It's slightly better than Sundara.

      HiFiMan Ananda in the hizzie. Dang, I know I am very susceptible to new toy syndrome, but these really sound great so far.

      I have a question. Would a bottlehead crack + hd650 = warmpoo? Is that what is meant by warmpoo?

        Righto. The jot is a little on the forward side for these cans. The Valhalla 2 seems to tame those daggers a bit, but i don't know if it is the right pairing yet.

        Granted, I'm saying this as a Clear owner (but pretty much same treble problems), they need something to smooth or lack any flaws in the treble for sure. My preferred sub-$1k pairings so far have been the MCTH+LPS and the T3; Jot and LCX have been painful.

        I liked Clear and MCTH. I think Elex and BW2 should be great as well

        No, more seriously, IEMs are very hot for one reason or another, and like others said, very cheap to ship and IEMs are niche enough that the manufacturers are probably much easier to work with than Senn or others who don't really need Massdrop.

      I have to admit that I think the HE4XX is really damn good. I think it holds up to the HD650, although they present differently.

      I'm probably going to pick up some wireless active noise cancelling HPs this week, either the Bose qc35 or the Sony 1000xm2. Any thoughts?

        1000XM2 is not worth it if you don't have sources with LDAC imo. Actually if you have LDAC, buy MUC-M2BT1 and pair it eith mmcx iem instead

        Active noise canceling I'd have to say the Sonys. Thankfully their app has EQ now, too.
