    Thanks Warrior!

    Sure:
    Wooseasy was the seller and Senfer was the brand. I hope you are friendlier over here. I just wanted to help another Head-Fier. Reasoning: Wooseasy allegedly manipulated reviews.

    Here a tacit cooperation with @james444 and more so with @Biodegraded...I just posted this but could not mention them or HF:

    "...Mentions and references to SBAF will be removed.

    Thank you for understanding.

    Best Regards,..."

    Um - unless things have changed over there since I was moderating, there was never a ban for mentioning WooEasy - simply a message advising why their products weren't allowed to be reviewed on Head-Fi (and subsequent review removed). And the reason was because they were actively shilling (paying people for positive reviews), and then they lied about doing it. Eventually the deception was untangled ( A LOT of proof). They never made any attempt at apologising for what they did - so their products were black-listed.

    No-one I know was ever banned - and i'd be genuinely surprised if they ever would be. The only reason you would be removed from a thread would be continuing to mention them after you'd been advised not to. Then thats on you.

    But thats there - welcome to SBAF.

    Hi everyone. Been lurking here for a while. I began my audio hobby early 2016. So far I have lived with roughly 40 headphones and iems and have settled on HD650 (2013), ATH-AD2000, ER4SR. I also have E-MU Teaks on the way.

    My HD650s are my favourite cans, and I prefer them over HD800s (lived with for over 4 months) and HE-500s (bought twice) for its smoothness, tonal balance and cohesiveness from mids to treble. I have demoed other high end cans but haven't had the urge to upgrade. From what I have heard, the Susvara (25-30 minute demo) and HE-1 (demoed 2 tracks) were the only ones that I would consider a direct upgrade path to the HD650s, but cannot justify the prices for those.

    I'm mostly interested in nearfield monitors now and looking to eventually upgrade my LSR305s.
