        Any more info on this headphone you could link to? How does it sound, regardless?

        I think the headphone is only available in China, and I guess it only appears on Taobao (Amazon-like site), not even Ali Express.

        I found myself getting worse comparing headphones so don't trust me on this. The sound is ok, the vocal could be a bit tinny, and I think there's some missing about lower-mids, treble can be a bit bright but definitely bearable. Bass is good, could use a bit more sub-bass but good enough.

        The sq was compared to LCD-4 on Ragnarok, which is currently my favourite, so the bar is quite high. I can say I was just picking, as there's no major problem.

        I'd describe it as better Hifiman house sound, a little bit of unevenness here and there but better than old Hifiman. Come to think of it, my night need to compare it to my modded HE6SE, I'll do this tomorrow.

      OK, I tried another pair of closed-back Hifiman headphones: Audivina, and it's a meh.
      1. Ti_Leo
        Ti_Leo
        It's like the typical round shape Hifiman is back: plasticky vocal, spikey treble, somehow artificial depth, but generally not as bad as before.

        They are really comfortable to use. The there's this bass boost, like TH-X00 PH? But with definitely weaker sub-bass, so the bass can keep me happy but it can't bring violence and pain, not good enough.
        Feb 21, 2024
      2. Ti_Leo
        Ti_Leo
        They still have Hifiman's thin-string-of-sound effect, with the artificial depth, and snappy-ish speed, they could sound empty, but the boosted bass filled in some blank, so it's ok. But generally the sound just feels disjoint.

        They are technically better than my modded SJY Moonlight, but Moonlight just sounds better as a whole fuller thing. And it can be leaky for Audivina?

      My favourite Hifiman could be BW600, it just sounds good, for ~$6, and it's sensitive to EQ. But I don't know if it's available abroad

      My medium volume headphone impression: Lcd-4, meh, plain and boring. It shines when ears nearly bleed.

        The only way I like the LCD-4 is with @rhythmdevils mods. It goes from “meh,” to “I want to buy one.”

        I'd say that the "suspension headband"? That both Hifiman and Audeze currently using are fine, and the latest ZMF and Meze (IIRC) headbands look even better.

        But hey, guess who's been struggling with this on-head weight problem too? Apple.

        I thought the weight would bother me, but it's been basically fine. I wear them for at most an hour to an hour and a half at a time, as I just listen in short sessions to pretty much all HPs. So, I can see them getting uncomfortable over longer periods. But I've not felt any discomfort for myself.

        One thing I find myself is that I'm OK with heavy headphones, IF the headband is alright (not old Audeze ones ugh). I guess it's just me wearing headphones a lot and play VR games (mostly Beat Saber) sometimes, and I think these two actions helps with each other

        Just what happened to me a week or so ago. And I checked a heap of things before getting to that damn plug.

        What I don't understand it's that it sounded ok with YouTube speech content: it was only when I switched to music that it turned crap.

      This is stupid: ear pads for Ananda BT are different from the ones for normal Ananda and other egg? kidney? shaped Hifiman headphones.

        It's like there are even more mounting clips on BT. Yep, I counted them, 12 vs 9 on normal ones. Maybe they went for better seal on BT, if taking off the pads were not a PITA...

        Do the 9 clipped pads fit in the other? Because you can use other stuff to seal the pads better.

        Nope, first look was like the arrangement of the clips were flipped upside down, but due to egg shape of them, I couldn't force the smaller end into the bigger end, then I found the numbers were then different.

        Maybe it's the PCB, chips and batteries in BT made the mounting screw holes moved a bit, then some of the original clips hole were too close to some screw holes causing structure vulnerability, maybe?

        Maybe Ananda needs more power to drive, as it just sounds a bit off. Deva Pro sounds much better timbre-wise.

        And maybe it's better detail retrieval, or just more pronounced in that frequency, I think Ananda is "good" at picking up low level electric noise, I guess it might not be wise to pair it with some noisy Bluetooth source. Oh, wait...

        And it's my current No.1 "speaker-like" headphone, it's so transparent, I can hear everything outside and it sounds the same listening from the back of the headphones... (Reminder: I took all the back damping material off (A PCB window with black cloth mesh))

        Anyway, it should be great for PC use, like gaming? 3D printing cat ears now!!!!!

        I applied some sound damping material and some felt in the cup, solved the treble peak (I think), then changed the headband, since my pair is V1, the OG headband sucks...

        Oh, I forgot, also, pads swap...

        The good thing about these headphones is that they have some bloated bass, making music fun, kinda reminds me of TH-X00 Purpleheart, not to that much bloated, but they are just more fun than HE6SE V1 (and I think I've made HE6SE a bit bloated already)

      It's strange: applying sound damping material to the inner wall of the back of HE6SE V1 muffles highs in vocal
      1. Ti_Leo
        Ti_Leo
        I was playing around with my recent-found dynamat-like material, I applied some strips of it to the inner wall, but I just didn't like the metal sheet of the material, so I put some sound damping foam on in, so I made two layers of rings.

        Then I found that the vocal was quite muffled. I didn't think my boring mod would make any sense, but after taking the foam off, the liveliness of vocal was back.

        It's a great experiment to me, because I did want to tune down the highs a bit, so now I left 1/3 ring of foam in, and I'm happy. (other changes to my HE6SE: ZMF suede pads with bassports, 3D printed grill. Yes, I'm sensitive to treble peaks)

      Why do I always feel the vocalists sound more moving and nuanced in reaction videos?
      1. Ti_Leo
        Ti_Leo
        Ok, 13 minutes later, I came up with a theory: because the treble was compressed more in reaction videos so relatively, mids got more pronounced.

        Warmpoo FTW!!!
