Can barely tell they’re there. With regards to cabling.

Do you have any idea how badly designed a cable would have to be to have an effect on the audio signal over three meters? With typical dome driver headphones, the sound source is very close to your ears, and the wavefront is still fairly spherical when it hits you outer ear. Earlier this year a new version arrived, the HD S, the main external differentiator being a change from grey to black for the skeletal shell of aviation-grade plastic that surrounds the gleaming silver inner cover.

You just need to do a blind test to confirm it. Innovative, ergonomically designed ear cup frame is crafted of Leona, an ultra-lightweight, non-resonant material with titanium like strength.


And like any of the best of the best they WILL sound like the entire audio chain that feeds them. Likewise for the treble distortion, which appears to have improved, is actually the same. Bottom line, if you think cable difference is a rinb, go right ahead, there are top recording and mastering engineers that have probably done more top rated albums than you have and THEY say THEY hear a difference enough to spend GOBS of money rewiring their studios.

Thank you Sorrodje, indeed Purrin’s measurements show that your mod does not affect distortion. Over-Ear Open Headphones Reviews. On the issue of EQ, I know you are aware of its phase, etc. This website started out with great promise and has delivered since day one. Science cannot explain everything, therefore my placebo-induced delusion must be physical in nature, “hehehe”!

At the top of the sine wave, high pressure enters the bottle, which then bounces of the inside of the bottle at the resonant frequency, and the high pressure returns to the opening of the bottle one half wavelength later. Guess curiosity and hs800 have to stop somewhere I suppose.
