  1. Trying my chances here too. I'm a reputable trader on Head-Fi where this ad runs in parallel In from a trade just a couple days ago. I'm rating condition at least 9/10 because of a few tiny imperfections. Invoice specifies 14 months young and will be shipped together with its original box, 3.5mm cable and booklet. Discovered today that store warranty is actually still valid for another 10 months. Nice plus for the future owner! Willing to split shipping to the UK and also throwing in a spare mini to jack adapter. Price is €249. PM any time Gallery
  2. HIFIMAN HE-560 Over Ear Full-size Planar Magnetic Headphones. The Headphones in excellent condition and perfect working order. These are the original type with the wood trim. They have a high quality upgraded cable and sound wonderful. Only selling as I've gone over to Stax and I'm selling all my other headphones and stuff to pay for them. Bargain £325.
  3. In pristine condition with display box and all cables. Sennheiser HD 600's Emsworth £300 + postage. I've tried uploading photos but even one of my pics is over 2mb.
  4. Sennheiser HD800 Headphones. Late ones S/N 39000. I'm only selling them as I have now bought Stax. The headphones are perfect as new condition and boxed. £600. Collection welcome. Can be posted.
  5. Hello All, I have bought a set of Sennheiser HD650 for my son for Christmas. At the moment he is living in student residence studying classical guitar at the Royal Academy. He has a Mac Book Pro and a Samsung phone to deliver music. Can anyone advise me on a DAC/AMP combo for up to £200 max. Everything keeps returning to Chord Mojo but its just too much cash. Could be a desk top or portable. So far looked at. Oppo HA-2SE Schiit Fulla 2 And loads of other leads and youtube videos and only one that grabbed me was OPPO HA-2SE. Any advice welcome. Refine sound out of PC and just headphone amp?
  6. SOLD Well after countless years I now have the dedicated room that I dreamed of, so no kids or Mrs are affected. So I don't really use my H/P rig anymore and I'm thinking it's time for a new home and someone who'll get the use out of them. The Utopias (£3.5k new) are in excellent condition, no scratches or dents or dings. Bought from a UK retailer and not used for the past 8 months or so. Comes with the standard cable and also a (6metre) custom made cable with Furutech cable and connector. The custom cable is more transparent and detailed, while the standard is bigger and warmer sounding. Comes with all boxes etc in mint condition I'm thinking £2200 for the Utopias. PM me if you would be seriously interested. Silly offers will be politely ignored. Cheers
  7. As above. Wanted..pair of hd600 cans. Must be immaculate. Boxed. Etc. I am in Liverpool..please reply by p.m. initially, with contact details. Many thanks for looking.
  8. As new, in black. Comes with remote control and original power lead. Would prefer buyer to collect £370
  9. Hi Anyone else have one? I have a V1 Aune T1 with an aftermarket tube - the original tube was too cheap and I had to get a couple more since the second I got was out of balance on the channels. I'm not sure what tube I'm running now but it's not particularly fancy or NOS. The tube here is only used in the DAC stage, somehow, I'm no expert but it's not an output stage tube afaik. I really like it! My comparisons are a Z906 headphone output (pretty crap) and a CA Dacmagic XS v2 (good but I believe held back by the USB based power). It's got body, it's got highs, I'm driving 600 ohm DT990 Pro and it's just amazing. Such a full bodied sound. I'm experiencing occasional channel imbalances when using it to drive actual speakers, but with headphones it seems just fine, it's quite old now so I don't mind this so much (and the 'phones sound so much better anyway). So - just curious if you also have this "cheap" DAC and how you rate it?
  10. I have recently been looking, with help from a couple of Wammers, at using headphones. Some years ago the headphone amplifier was a bolt-on goody put into proper amplifiers or a cheapie box. Their sound quality varied from below awful up to average. During this time I bought a set of Stax headphones having heard them at a bake-off and they sounded really good and ultra clear without being clinical. They did not have a high impact sound on rock and big orchestral music but the detail, clarity and naturalness was superb. It was beyond what I could get from most systems I heard. However, they have become much more popular recently which has spurred on some companies to make dedicated amplifiers that sound very, very good for not a lot. I have heard the Schiit Magni2 which sounded great for a solid state amplifier and only cost a ton. Although I preferred the Little Dot valve amplifier. The Audeze Deckard was great with the Audeze headphones and a real step up in quality but somewhat more expensive. We had a superb sounding set up with a Little Dot and a set of BeyerDynamic 770s. Some people are finding them a real alternative to using an enormous amplifier with huge speakers. The experience is not so visceral but you can get stunning sound quality. Obviously, the sound is not impacted by the room etc. and you do not need a large thermal bank of an amplifier with two vertical coffin-like box speakers.. But some of those Woo amplifiers do look huge and as they run big valves they do heat the room a little. But maybe not as much as four 845s. What is others' experience? Does anyone use them as a real alternative to speakers? I appreciate that for late night listening there may not be an alternative but I sometime prefer their sound.
  11. Firstly a big thank you to Paul at Highend Headphones for the invitation to attend the day. It was well worth the trip from Ireland! I'm not currently a Stax owner but I was interested to hear the 009's with what was promised to be an energiser that performed better than Stax's own. For all you Stax owners it is well worth looking in to, due to be retailing around the £5k mark to compete with the amps you would have to import from America. I'm surprised it's taken this long for a British company to get something out really. It should do well.
  12. Bought as a big surprise for my dad's b'day yesterday....the biggest surprise being he'd chopped in his headamp and 560's for a Stax set up as a selfie b'day pressie....hey ho. Bought from Highend Headphones on Friday past and delivered to me on Monday, never been worn (I plugged them in briefly to check all was working), booklets/warranties etc. unopened. Paul will stand over the warranty. Photos are pretty pointless as they are new, but added for decoration. Cost £1199 (receipt included) Asking £925 inc. next day UK delivery.
  13. SOLD Ultrasone Edition 8 Ruthenium headphones for sale, completely as new (no marks at all), only 25 hours use max, they wouldn't be broken in yet and have only been used for 1 week last October. Packaging as new also. These are the best 'on the go' headphones I've come across, way better than the offerings from B&W, Oppo, B&O etc.....I tried them all before buying these. The only 'easy to drive' closed back headphone that was slightly better was the Ether C (£1400), but those were way too big and heavy to use on a plane etc. The Ultrasones can be driven by iPhones and media players with ease. Only selling as I bought the Focal Utopia's which can also be driven by my Astell & Kern.

  15. Anyone heard them? They're supposed to be very good....
  16. Morning everyone, I recently invested in some Sennheiser Momentum headphones to go with my TiDAL subscription (on my laptop) and iPhone 6S+. I went for the Bluetooth model as I listen at work and I am often in and out of my seat. I use them wired most of the time though. They sound great and a massive improvement over my Sennheiser in-ears. I'm a bit intrigued by headphone amps like the Chord Mojo. Does anyone have a dedicated amp / DAC and do you find much of an improvement? My logic was If I wanted further improvements I would go for higher quality headphones in the first instance but I'd be keen to hear your experiences.
  17. I was so deeply impressed with the Smyth 'realiser' demonstration at the recent London 'Indulgence' show ,I knew we had to have the Smyth 'realiser' here at Purité Audio. Especially as the Smyth brother license their upmixing tech from Christof Faller of Illusonic whom we also represent. We will be able to offer the full multi channel and measurement service, and we may be able to visit individuals home with our multi channel rig.

  20. Hi guys. I am looking for closed over ear headphones. for use at work with my iPhone 6s Plus. I work in a noisy environment, driving a large diesel forklift, been using Shure 4/535se in ears, with over the ears safety phones for some years now, but that gets tiring after a while. Bought the Sennheiser HD 380 Pro earlier this year to try at work, but unfortunately they let too much noise in, also the iPhone has problem driving them without amp to satisfied levels. My question to all you guys is this, do you know any better closed over ear headphones to use with my phone than the Sennheiser HD 380pro ? I mostly listen to podcast while working, but sometimes music too. Hopefully I will get some suggestions from you guys. Thanks.
