Hello everyone!

I thought I would start a thread about headphones, since I've become a bit of a nut for audio this year, and headphones in particular.

Any other headphone crazies in this place? I've been wondering about organising a headphones/audio meetup for here in Auckland at some stage, would be a nice chance to meet others interested in the area and also to audition headphones and things that otherwise tend to be buy-before-you-try in NZ.

Anyways, musings on setting up meet-ups aside, this is my present collection of gear:

Grado GS1000i and RS1
Audeze LCD-2
Audio Technica ATH-W3000ANV
Beyerdynamic T5p
Ultrasone Edition 8 (ruthenium)
Sennheiser HD251-II

...hoping to get some Ultrasone Signature Pros soon too...

Sources (all playing flac encoded files):
Desktop: PC connected to ASUS Xonar Essence One USB DAC/headphone amplifier
Portable: Rig has been Galaxy S3 (US edition) --> USB OTG --> HeadAmp Pico USB DAC/amp, however the Pico doesn't work with the International S3, or the Galaxy Note 2 which I presently have, so will be getting the Leckerton UHA-6S.MKII and Ray Samuels Audio "The Intruder" USB DAC/amp to try out in my portable rig going forward...

Yourmomm: Hi. Does anyone in Auckland/tauranga/hamilton area have mrspeakers ether c flows? I'm thinking of getting them, over the ether flow (open), so I can listen to them in bed, without waking SWMBO up, but really need to hear them before taking the plunge... Ive currently got open ethers (pre-flow), which I love, but don't want to take advantage of the mrspeakers trade in deal, and swap to the closed, if I lose the sound I love...If this was the case, I would prefer to upgrade to the open flows, and carry on not being able to listen to them in public places...

So, I really need to try the closed ether flows, before I buy!! i'll bring beers, if you let me visit, and have a quick listen to yours?

Many thanks





I had a feeling @geektastic has some but he isn't in Auckland as I understand?
