        If memory serves, the selling point on this HP was that it had the same driver as the beloved Fidelio X2/X2HR, but supposedly with a "reference" (less fun) tuning. None of that seemed true or even made sense to me while owning it. Suffice to say I still have my Fidelio X2 (the very definition of fun tuning, for which I'm grateful) and not the A800.

        I liked the X2 when I had it. Fun headphone indeed. Even if it was not very popular here.

      Finally it has been released. The Osprey 12 (Eminence 12CX with Selenium D220Ti) by Michael Chua. Time to build some new crossovers...

        I've never seen a tweeter that threads into the back of a woofer. Do the highs just pass through the dust cap?

        Yes.There is a small throat that is covered with a acoustically transparent dustcap.

        I was wondering if it might have been a case of the yokes extending too far out of the rails or whatever, but yeah either way seems like the material they used there was just weak. You'd expect better of an expensive product, sigh.

        They have had build issues since the Spirit one days. I also thought that their premium HP would be more metal and less plastic.

        Thank you @zerodeefex for warning me off their Spirit line, was genuinely tempted back then. Still, you'd think that sensible repairs would mean they cost LESS than buying a new can altogether. Jeebus, more than other things that's what's disgusting.

        For home office?
        I got Rode NT USB mini condenser mic with a cheap boom arm and use Koss Porta Pro from its headphone out. Rode connect is a free software that comes with it. Works well for home office.

        For headphone with mic Jabra Evolve2 40 is good option

        I have the Jabra Evolve 65 and it is great. For music not so much, but meetings and such, it is awesome.

      Black Widow was a disappointing farewell. Was hoping for Winter Soldier meets Atomic Blond Spy Thriller, but no.

        Spikes in measurements? 8k is likely coupler resonance so you won't hear it, 12k might be driver resonance. I'd be dubious about anything beyond ~10k in measurements, better to listen (presuming, unlike me, that you can hear much up there!).

        Not spikes in measurements, but with listening I can hear some very strong peaks at about 8khz for me and another at 12khz.

        It takes Ironman to finish a story. He was the weakest character, just a man in a suit powered by will-power and science. The weakest character in the universe defeated Thanos. So in the end a PortaPro is enough to make you ditch the most expensive audio system. Oh well...

        I’m not surprised. I think they’ve mostly been monetizing their brand and failing to innovate for a long time now. I wonder if Axell leaving was an early indicator

        Their "pro" stuff is the broadcast stuff and it is good and priced high. I'm sure they will find a Chinese suiter to scoop up the name, kind of like what happened to Volvo and a bunch of hifi names like Quad, Wharfedale, Luxman, etc.
