    oh I meant revised rods + comfort strap to wrap around the seatbelt. I think they're slightly revising the angle of the rods so there's is less strain on it or something lol you should double check with Ruck and Eudis on the Aurorus discord!

    just the strap, not the rod lol

    haha I feel you on that. I actually think the chassis looks pretty cool with the open grill design. I just hate the way I look when I put it on my head lol

    Agreed! The chassis looks very nice. It's just the headband. It honestly does look like headgear braces. It might be one of the ugliest headbands I have ever seen on a headphone.

    Do you have a link to their Discord? I can't find it. Edit: nevermind, I found it.

    haha I'm not sure if the hifiman he 560 headband is going to get rid of that look? it's going to look similar but in black lol

    Anyways, I feel like we're deviating from the thread a bit so if you have further questions regarding the headband, feel free to PM me. Don't forget to leave an impression here once you get a good grasp on the sound!

    Is this white baffle printed plastic or some kind of fabric?

    I found a way to make them work beautifully. No special amp required, although we can say this one is quite special. But the point is that any decent neutral amp can work... with the right source.

    No issue with the highs at all. This is with the Shure M95HE MM cart, which is warm and full bodied. Franken TC-750 is used as the MM phonostage.

    Now using a solid MC, to take advantage of the transient response. Using RSA Nighthawk for phonostage (it's much better at MC than MM). Here is the Denon DL-103. Wow, fantastic synergy here. The tone is a bit more mid-centric, the bass is clearer, and the upper mids filled in. I've said this before, the DL-103 is such a good MC cart that we really don't need to spend much more - serious diminishing returns after this.
