  1. Astro A50 for gaming. Love it. HD800S does give a better sense of positioning supposedly, but gaming headsets are very good.
  2. The headphones I own are the best headphones 😉 D8KP and Abyss 1266 all that's missing from my collection to fill every gap one could possibly find. Susvara is amazing but hard to justify at it's asking price. 1266 seems like a shorter leap. D8KP still the 'own only one' headphone that does the most with the greatest forms of music. Also I think we're talking about categories here rather than Tiers?
  3. Very tempting. My all-time favourite headphone (even though I don't own it). @BlueOceanBoy is right though, it's the perfect 'own only one' headphone.
  4. Unsure yet. Listening to headphones less with a new baby. Thinning the herd let’s say and trying something new down the line. The Empyrean is still one of the best headphones money can buy.
  5. Further information: Meze Empyrean (Gunmetal) with case and receipt Includes the stock 4 pin XLR cable 14 months warranty remaining The Meze Empyrean is the product of two passionate companies coming together to explore what is possible beyond their individual capabilities. The result is a no-compromise headphone embodying Meze’s daring aesthetic and user-centred design approach and Rinaro’s experience in research and development within the field of planar magnetics. Rinaro, a progressive audio company, has at the heart of its technology an R&D
  6. For what they deliver, surely just chucking them in the bedroom, the kitchen or the garage is better than selling them. If not, GLWS. They’re a great speaker ?
  7. Thats why Hugo 2 + Stellia is my daily office rig. Nothing beats it for a high-end closed back solution.
  8. You are probably right. I should really looks at tubes for my WA2. I haven't dabbled yet.
  9. It’s really good and an honest contender for those who like the HD800S.
  10. Agree Ray. I’d likely buy it to go alongside my HD800S for a difference flavor. Really love this headphone.
  11. Well I’m glad I paid $1450 new locally for my HD800S then ? I still think it’s the best value headphone period.
  12. Is that in reference to using your Empy on your Violectric? If so, I’d agree hence my comment above. However on Hugo 2, I can’t see this being a problem - I may be wrong but we will see. At our recent meet at Peppy’s I tried both copper and silver Meze cables on the A&S Encore and while I preferred the silver, the copper just sounded different, not ‘worse’ as such. Pairing the copper on a device like H2 should marry well. If not, the cable can be easily sold on.
  13. Red leather would have looked awesome I think. ?
  14. Considering the material changes used on the Celestee at that price point, i'm surprised they stuck with fabric over leather on the Clear Mg, though it likely has a lot to do with the sound signature achieved using those fabric pads. They just get too messy with the pilling and dirt for me to ever consider. Love the new aesthetic though - those grilles looks great.
