        I did the search through google too unfortunately the info is very limited. I like the form factor too and the red bottom is cooler on V1 :)

        Probably worth unless price is not insane. No need to pay premium imo. Anyway v1 seems rarer than v2 though.

        @microCuts Google won't turn up much, the most useful source really is that 50+ page thread.

        The numbers of V1s in existence is tiny, not many people are going to have direct experience with one.

      Went to Canjam SG. Half of the IEMs & Cables easily cost more than 1k USD. >2K IEM stuffs are pretty common too & is actually a norm there..

        Not really sure how much have they invested in the R&D but man those prices are just unrealistically high, especially for those young companies which barely passed their 5 years mark! So sad to see big firm like Sennheiser with years of experience and proper R&D background offering great affordable products but have way lesser attention in the event.

        Did you try the new Alex Rosson rad-0 headphones?

        Yes i briefly did. I personally think it sounds good, less warmer than the Audeze that I can recall. Most importantly it is much comfortable to wear and lighter than the wood Audeze! The resin ring looks really good in person too.

      Thoroughly enjoying my lowly HD800/NBM/SDAC/Sonarworks setup.

      Any thoughts on the Meier Daccord in 2019? Looking to pair it with HD800 & NMB.

      Got a brand new HD800 after so many years. It responds really well with EQ! Surprised with the HD650 keychain. https://bit.ly/2z4GZEY

      Got myself a 3ds few weeks back. Blown away by the games quality. Got myself a Switch yesterday and I m still grabbing my 3ds sometimes.

      Lost my E3000 on a trip :( An excuse to get the E5000?

      Went to Canjam Singapore. The $55 Final Audio Design E3000 turns out to be the best thing of the show in my opinion.

        Sorry I do not have experience with the one you mentioned..It sounds full & is slightly on warm side. Bass is good being a DD and is not dry like BAs. Soundstage is decent too. Workmanship is great! To me it has unbelievable value at this price.

        TBH the E3000 is the best sounding product FAD made, and rivals more expensive IEM from other manufacturers. Their F series, crazily priced Piano Forte series, FIBASS are major let down for me though imo.

        The upcoming E5000 with removable cable is slightly better. USD300 and will be released in May according to the sales guy.

        E2000's better imo - less bassy, more balanced all around. Crinacle's measurements corroborate. Spent a whole afternoon at e-earphone last year and walked out with it only. Disagree on build quality though - cable is thin and strain relief is scarce!

      Rocking with KGST / L700 combo. No more Glare & Edginess from KGSSHV.

        Yup I got my used HV which was built around 2013. I feel the combo is abit dry for vocals. Very good with EDM though. How about yours?

        I got a used mjolnir HV (unknown year) and a new Mjolnir Carbon CC about the same time, about 3 weeks back. I found them both kind of dry with 007s and 009s, although I think my ears have been warming up to the sound. Definitely more edgy than my tube amp at least. About 1 hour into the L700s, they are more liquid but maybe lighter in the mid range?

        Wow, you have the latest CC! I am surprised that you still feel dry with your 007 playing out from both of the amps. I am pretty sure that you will not have such issue with KGST due to its warmness, only losing some resolution and soundstage. I used to have a SRM007tii too which works nothing wrong with my L700 too.
        So I will probably go for GG (Grounded Grid) in future due to positive experience with tubes.

      Gungnir Multibit or SR007? Which has more Wow factor?

        Based on the last status update @microCuts, looks like you might have a BH. If so, SR007. =]

        I dunno, the L700 is supposed to be a sweet headphone. Maybe the Gungnir Multibit is still the best choice...

        Thanks for all the kind responses. I just sold my 007tii so have some extra funds to explore more. I am currently using Kgsshv + L700 + Mojo. Seems like Gungnir Multibit is a solid choice to bring more improvement.

      Some one dumping his Headamp's KGBH at <2k locally. Should I take the plunge? Already have a kgsshv.

        Just a heads up, if you ever need to have that HeadAmp serviced, Justin has the WORST service in ANY industry I have seen. It took him eight months to fix one of my products. I had to leave him chain voicemails to eventually get my product back.

      Got an used KGSSHV which has not been fired up in 4 yrs at 1/10 of normal price. Plugged in my L700 and it works flawlessly! Best deal ever!
