Discussion in 'Loaner Programs' started by purr1n, Mar 27, 2017.
I'm concerned about being Grado'd out (really is Hemp all that different from HF-3, RS-2, SR-225 with flat pads?) However, please state if you are interested for the Hemp as a loaner. Want to make sure a loaner is worthwhile. I also think we should revisit DT880-250 or DT880-600 possibly with Solderdude's adapters. I can make them and provide them. Another would be a T50RP / T60RP tutorial how to get the LFF Paradox sound.
I may do a Patreon thing like ASR to get more funds in to make things more interesting.
That's what I am wondering, too. My gut says at best subtle difference (betting much smaller difference than hd650-660 delta). It does sound quite different from vintages from the memory, but so do e-drivers (as hinted by measurements). I digress.
By the way, I originally planned to offer a short loaner to Chacha once I get bored with my Hemp (it would eventually happen months later). Maybe I can expand the original plan and make it a small and limited tour. I am highly unsure whether LTD Grado is resellable outside sbaf.
Never heard a Grado, so I would be game for a Hemp loaner. That said, I'm not sure I'm pumped about spending over $400 on any Grado. If you can get an HD 600 or JVC HA-FD01 for < $400, then why pay a premium for a Grado? How close can you get to the HF-3/RS-2 level while keeping the all-in price (pads, whatever) under $400? I've also always been curious about the DT880-600, so I think that's also a good < $400 loaner option. The super custom eq/filter solutions (e.g., built into an amp, or in-line filters) don't get my juices flowing. Maybe include a Loki with the DT880-600 loaner instead?
Interested in that. So many T_0RP mod variants out there, so little time to try them all...
I'd be interested in the hemp.
Also, I have a beyerdynmaic DT770 I don't use if there are good mods for it that someone wants to do, then use as a loaner.
Bumping this suggestion up. There's a great promotion going on through end of the calendar year ($1,000 off for existing owners of certain Focal headphones). @Bloom, any open box or demo units in the shop? Anyone with other contacts with Focal dealers that might be amenable to a loaner?
I have a new one coming out, the dac2541, a successor to the dac1541, interested in one for a tour ?
Most definitely if you wouldn't mind arranging this. Lots of folks have been asking me of this.
Send a PM to @ChaChaRealSmooth and me.
