they're also destroyed by 15 minutes of use in a room with more than 5 specks of dust, requiring hundreds of dollars in repairs sent to china

no. first of all, dust affects estats and dynamics in the same way. it weighs the driver down, it's just that estats are so light it can actually make a difference. a driver's weight affects it's efficiency not its "speed". it gets quieter and is easily corrected. not like you need to correct for channel imba considering units that have been used for 20 years rarely need to be.

Massdrop x nuforce edc

They should make a 600 ohm version and call it the hd666

Crack with or without speedball?
I've read the dt1990 also pair quite well with the massdrop kcx

electrostatics attract dust while they're running... from electrostatic force. I see you don't know anything about them and why they have a dust problem.

hi, I just answered why dust is not a problem if you had read my post. dust does nothing more than cause channel imbalances which is easily correctable. 20+ year old units have no issues with channel imbalances.

Attached: allout.png (625x626, 63K)

Causes discharge and arcing. Sometimes heard as squealing. Dust is naturally attracted to charged plates.
Not something that happens with coil or planar dynamic.

fucking hell /hpg/ is going totally 2d degenerate very fast....


no. those issues are prevented by the dust filter which prevents large dust particles from entering the field. if you end up with a unit that buzzes it mostly a manufacturing defect or other issues like a previous owner overvolting his shit.

Good if under $130

Narrow but wider than MSR7s. Great detail and imaging for a portable. Easy to drive. Contrary to the name it isn't a particularly bass heavy headphone. Maybe for audio technicas which are generaly bright. Bass is smooth and good quality. Not muddy at all.

Can you please recommend good earphones for £50 or less? Pretty pls...

I like mine. Have had ZS5's for 6 months now with no issues whatsoever.

In my opinion, the sound signature of the ZS6's is practically perfect, although the mids could be slightly more pronounced.

Not really. You need more money senpai.
You might be able to find some Philips SHP9500 or Audio Technica ATH-AD500/700X on ebay for a little over 50 burger bux.

Holy shit, I thought this board despised Audio-Technica. I stumbled across them while looking at M50Xs and they're $129.44 on Amazon, but it says they'll ship in 1-2 months. Are they a better alternative to M50Xs?

At least he's not "garbage" user or "based" user.

avatarfagging is against the rules.

m50X is shit though

so is your face

human garbage

how much cat posting do I need to do to bring back beoplay cat poster

Yeah I was tempted to buy them though since anything would be better than my IEMs but this is my first pair of cans and I want to get a good first pair.

I want Stax 009S.

i can get the Fidelio X2HR for cheap

is it worth it or should i get the ATH-AD700X?

both garbage

X2s are wonderful. Pretty reminiscent of speakers + sub.


Discords don't kill generals but circle jerk faggotry that leads to discords do, just look at /vrg/ on /vg/ I used to be so good now it's full of drama mongering "VR" Sock posting faggots who need all the attention they can slurp

Last thread I asked about crackling in my HD599s and anons suggested to check for hairs on the driver. I cleaned out everything on the driver cover behind the ear pad as well as in the housing behind the driver and I thought it helped but there's still a crackle, which makes me think there must be a hair actually inside the driver itself. Is it possible for me to access the driver to get it out without ruining it? It seems to be held on with glue but I don't know if it's safe to remove it or whether I could glue it back in properly. I tried blowing compressed air in from the back but I think it made it worse.

I've been able to temporarily fix it before by running the bass shaker test on here and jiggling my headphones around a bit:

Might be a waste of time, but you could give it a shot. Your headphones are probably still under warranty though, and you could just send them to Sennheiser.

You are supposed to check for hairs in the driver, a stuck hair rubbing onto the voice coil.
Are they not held in by tabs? Take a picture if you can.

I was under the impression the warranty only covered defects which I don't think I can claim this is.

Okay maybe not that...

What are some good RCA cables to hook up my schiit stack together?

I bought some Ghentaudio 6 inch RCA cables but I'm mad as fuck, they keep falling out of the jack to the slightest of movements, and they have to be extremely still in a certain place, otherwise I'd either keep hearing feedback or they fall out.


Yeah unfortunately the 599 looks nothing like that inside.


>spend a gorillion dollars to listen to 60 year old music

The cables cost less than $25

You can just claim it's a defect.

I'll try it if I have to but I'm not sure they'll buy it since it's towards the end of my warranty and I'd rather not have to send it out to them. I'd prefer to do it myself I just need to know whether it's reasonably possible to remove the driver without ruining it and how.

Idol trash here. I approve of OP.

Does anyone own wicked cushion ear pads?

I realized my replacement earpads by another brand were ridiculously hard and not pliable enough to make a good seal

Wondered if these were going to be softer or equally shit. Using MDR-v6.
