        Sennheiser rep said they had something interesting for Canjam NY. Looks like this is what they were talking about ?

        Costs the same some modifications of HD650. It's not really that bad ~$600 it sounds like, the 650 were something like $400-500

      Piety makes a better preamp than IEMagni. Deeper and more holographic. No image blobs between my X-Omni's

        I’m really dense, how would one evaluate the Piety as a preamp?

        You'll need to put your source RCA's into the "In" on the Piety and then connect a set of RCA's from the "Out" of the Piety to the "In" on the LAuX. I'm using mine as a preamp into a stereo setup though, with an amplifier that has preamp in's.

      Just noticed - IEMagni is on closeout. Just hooked mine up as a preamp in my 2.1 work setup. Versatile!

        They should have made the Magni 3+ the iemagni. It's' such a better amp than the heresy. Maybe it's not quiet enough though or something.

        Haha just to be clear I was poking fun at the (probably not fake but yet-to-be-confirmed) recent Audeze redesigns with the rounded edges and sliders that go through the bands. Not a fan. Genuinely didn't catch that in the vid though, good eye!

      Pad Roll Suggestions? - LFF Paradox - (Tighten / Reduce Mid-Bass thicc-ness)

        These are a bit smaller than the Brainwavz pads; you'll need to cut a slit in the skirt from edge to seam to get them over the baffle. They're a more supple pleather than the Brainwavz, maybe also softer foam, and are a bit less bassy. Smallish openings, not good for big ears.

        What pads are on them now? He used 3 different pads over time AFAIK.

        I believe they are the HM5 angled pads currently. I have old Mr. Speakers pads, but I have no clue what any of them are at this point. The paradox has some good traits hindered by some closed-back type struggles.

      Can't find a thread for LFF Paradox - What pads are everyone using? I'm using what came on them and I think also the Code 6

        Angled Brainwavz are the same exact dimensions as the LFF pads that come on the Code-X / Code-6 / etc. He just stretches them to fit the plastic rings and then tapes them down. Not my favorite on the HE6 personally but it does help to tone down the treble and bring a bit of presence to the mids.

        I think that is what is currently on mine. There is no Left/Right pad. The seam is at the top on one pad and the seam is on the bottom on the other pad. Good to know for spares. I never tried any of my Mr. Speakers pads, but I did love my Mad Dog / Alpha dog for what it was.

      Dear Focal, please make a massdrop style Clear/Utopia (Cost / Look) with an Organic or Composite cone. Start with pulp and then get silly.

        People always mention the "sound stage" of the Utopia - it has always reminded me of being a kid and taking my bookshelf speakers and laying directly between them and messing with the toe angles.

        I use their cable with the adapters with my Andromeda Gold. I believe Mee is the collab partner on those. I know it isn't "fancy", but it does the job just fine.

        If it’s the cables I beta tested a while back, the premium cable is very supple and pliable. It was good stuff.

        I ordered one of the simple black cables for my Plus + (gym use) and the copper cable to see if it works with my LCD-i4. Hopefully the heatshrink can be molded or removed.

      How long are HD800 pads supposed to last? I feel like they rot out even when I'm not wearing them.

        It's because you're doing it wrong. You have to sell and rebuy the headphones so often the pads don't have time to rot.
