They're all recorded in high-resolution format with all the same samples so I think this might be pretty un-biased. The point is, for some reason, when gear gets past a certain point of perfection, it starts to shoot itself in the proverbial foot and this fact, even though it appears to contradict our seemingly strict flawless logic, may be real and for who knows what reason and explanation. I paid 530 for them, used them for a bit and stopped using them after I got a pair of campfire Vega items. I have used the hifi-m8 and auralic taurus for my listening. In reference to your entire letter , I suspect my Wife would agree with you entirely , so there probably is accuracy to what you say. It's likely an inherent issue with the planar technology as compared to a dynamic. This is a reminder to ensure your post in follows all of our rules, which are visible in the sidebar.
When we got home my wife called you and ordered the Senns. Hey Rafe, Long time reader, first time commenter here. I'm just getting into this hobby and kind of overwhelmed to be honest lol. These headphones are not expensive , people keep on that pricy idea but it's kinda wrong in concept. I ordered a cable from Audeze but with the Thanksgiving holiday it won't ship till Monday so I won't be able listen till middle or end of next week. Having found and fixed this issue, we are restarting production and will deliver replacements to our customers who have experienced problems. I also enjoy your youtube reviews as well.
This information is used to contact you about the products and services on our website in which you have expressed interest. A company would be dumb not to have a culture of ongoing product improvement. The other billing information is stored for order fulfilment. Unauthorized sales Unauthorized dealers may provide confusing information regarding their lack of official status with Audeze and the nature of the warranty coverage they offer. It sound like somthing I'd want to do as soundstaging is important to me. BernardPeru , you definitely brought something important to the table. Your comment, or was it a question? See his article on this very topic, burn in, for what I'm talking about.
You maight be able to do it with a less expensive can. Would you mind sharing some favorites? What I do know is my personal reaction to something like this, which I'm sure is shared by many of your viewers. It honestly disturbs me how many people these days are so adamant to deny that a human could ever observe something not yet theorized or measured. Big lulz, that particular guy seems to be stalking me. Once again, this review matches exactly what I hear with my own setup.
I'd been thinking quite a bit about planar magnetic cans and how they might be improved and had a couple ideas I wanted to run by Alex. However, I'd like to think that a website devoted to headphones and ancillary gear would allow for the expression of rational critical and yes, contrary opinion, without summarily despatching the dissenters to a virtual gulag. A place to put all your used or un-used Audio or Video gear up for sale. Our company is owned and run by audio enthusiasts like you, and we deeply regret the problems any of our customers have experienced. Please feel free to correct me, Rafe, if I have missed the point.
Clear is not the same thing as transparent. If that's something you agree with, what's planned to be in yours? By the way, i am a young audiophile who apprecites good recordings. This site uses Google Analytics which is one of the most widespread and trusted analytics solution on the web for helping us to understand how you use the site and ways that we can improve your experience. There have been some driver failure problems, which Audez'e seems to have been quite responsive in addressing. It is the sort of experience that informs and inspires good inquiry. Most of us probably don't listen at 90 dB or 100 dB as that is painful. The result will likely not be as good as that which can be achieved in a dynamic however because the opposite phenomenon is going on over there.
The distortion produced, however, tends to be strongly even-order which tends to sound good and may be preferable to the acoustic problems associated with a bulkier magnet structures. I can't tell you how to run your site, nor do I pretend I know what's best for it. I was wondering if you've thought about shaping the magnets so they present less acoustic impedance around the diaphragms and maybe clean up the leading edge of the impulse and square wave response? Please, don't let that rhetoric fall into the past tense. The way to tell if your Audeze headphones have a Fazor is to rub your finger on the inside of the ear-cup to feel the ridges of the Fazor through the grill-cloth. The main idea is that I should have a pretty good guess about how the headphones will sound to me if I ever get the chance to listen to them, just from reading the review.
It looks to me as though the earpad on the right cup is substantially thicker. I should not care why a particular technology or design sounds good. Rafe, I was trying to inject a little fun with my question but in a way it's possibly relevant. This, in my opinion, is a good thing. I had the exact same experience.
When they are completed, will you adjust your impressions? Will you please continue on the great work done by Tyll and continue his legacy by also providing video reviews on the YouTube channel? Their phones are entirely metal or synthetic meaning a near perfect match for every headphone. Obviously I had struck a chord with their developments at the time. Frequency Response Let's first look at the frequency response data. No collection possible, I also update the tracking details after dispatch. Then I started to understand that there was a crowd who could have saved me the trouble. I don't see how any musician of traditional instruments can hear the Planar as being accurate in terms of presence when compared to a good dynamic.
About The Author Stuart Charles Black Stu is determined to help you make sound decisions, and strives to deliver the best and most in depth content on the internet! The bass is overwhelming and these headphones seem geared towards movie watchers and non-audiophiles. As I like the bass music too from Munich High-End Show music I remember how they play Will. In fact, I can think of no other identifiable group of people that I would call more enthusiastic about audio than the people responsible for bringing us the products we hobbyists enjoy. With today's high end music player software one need no longer worry about phase shift and other nasties. Nice to see something similar does actually work in practice. This is especially true if you don't use other headphones or sound sources as reference. And then we have the frustrating variability where the product reported on is not the product the consumer reading the review is listening to.
