Excellent! Look forward to it. And later in the year is good. 




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Awesome!  Thanks, I look forward to it.  The site is now taking up some of my bookmark realestate ;)

NZtechfreak:
hamstring: Slightly off-topic but I saw that last year there was an Auckland Headphone Meet.  Are there any plans to have one this year?  I'd love to get a chance to look at a few different headphones and HPAs.

More on-topic the Audeze EL-8s are looking very interesting.  I look forward to hearing how they compare to other closed back designs.


Yes, there will be another meet this year (I was the organiser last year, and plan to arrange this year's also). If you keep an eye peeled here you'll see more on the meet once the time is nailed down. It'll be a bit later in the year this time around.

Regards the site there, I mostly made it for the meet, but I'll soon have some more regular content going up with gear reviews and such like.

Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Over-Ears arrived this morning. These are quite the improvement on the old ones.

Anyone able to lend first gen for direct comparison? And/or NAD HP50? :)

Yeah, I'm in Auckland. It would be fantastic if I could borrow them a few days. That's the over-ears of the first gen?

Yep.  Over-ears not on-ears.  And can do!

Hey,

I'm new to this forum. I'm currently looking at the Hifiman HE-560, Audeze LCD-2 (fazor) and Sennheiser HD 800.

I'm hoping to try these headphones out so that I can make a decision on which one to get. Is there anyone who owns one of these and would so kindly lend them to me for a few days or so?

I'm also looking for a used or refurbished or open-box pair of one of these headphones, so if there's anyone looking to sell, lemme know.

Btw, I'm currently using the Hifiman HE-500 paired up with an Objective2 and ODAC combo unit from Mayflower Electronics. Other headphones I own are the Sennheiser HD 598, Audio Technica ATH-M50x and Sennheiser HD 429.

Thanks!

That's nice toys you are looking for. Computer Lounge probably has most of those available for Audition though I am unsure if they allow overnight with them for obvious reasons.

I'd imagine you'd want a Amp upgrade to power HD800's unsure about the others.

Ben, welcome to Geekzone. You haven't said where you are, which would make it tough. I'd think it's unlikely someone will lend $1000 headphones to someone they don't know. I think there's a store in Auckland who has many of those headphones, go back a few pages and you may find the name of it.

Hey, thanks for the quick response!

So that means I'll have to the Computer Lounge headquarters to test out a sample?

Call them to check if they have a pair or so. I know they have the HD800's and LCD-2's

Thanks for the quick reply! I'm currently in Auckland City.

I'll check it out.

Definitely check out Computer Lounge, they will have most of the those to audition (they did stock HiFiMan previously, but last I checked they weren't listed on their site any longer). Also, there will be a headphones meet later in the year where I would hope almost everything will be available for auditioning.

For the HD800 you will certainly want an amp upgrade, and even the others (including your HE-500) will sound better from a more powerful amp.



As an aside, I have some PM-3 coming to me now to compare to the Senn Momentum 2.0, they are basically the same price so a good head to head comparison is needed!
