Do you listen facing the speakers and/or standing between them facing the room?

A Hi-Fi dealer I visited (and got my current speakers from) thought I played in an orchestra as orchestra members often stand between the speakers to listen, because that is how they hear the music they play....

Definitely a very light and open space - and not full of other things....

I too thought it might be the panorama pic that made the speakers look so far apart.

Is there not a 'blank' or 'empty' space between the speakers or how far away are you able to sit to listen?

Part of The Trilogy set by Vidna Obmana.

Beautiful music, calm, serene, glasslike splendour

New release on Bandcamp



Inspired by the following BBC image - particularly at 20,000,000,000 years in the future....

(I did try to attach the image but too wide....)

Yep - that's the G cushions and they came with my headphones. The L ones are less comfortable than the G's.

However on one forum someone said the L's give a better sound as the headphones were designed to be a certain distance from the ear - something the G's don't (apparently) maintain....If you get the G's let us know how they compare - if you can hear a difference I would consider changing myself.

I can definitely wear mine for longer than an hour - on the comfort side I think slightly padded headband would help....

Seren these are what original came with my Grado Prestige SR 325's and what I recently got to replace the fluffier on ear ones.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0006GCCO0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

These are uncomfortable, being over ear,  the headphone mechanics so to speak does make contact with the ear and after long periods, for me about an hour or so I begin to notice it.  Grado users seem to put up with this because the sound quality is worth it.
Mine has the newer g cushion shape and debating which to get - and do I get cheaper versions available on the internet?

Re Grado's - I did see a forum comment where somebody advised that the change from on ear to over ear also affected the sound quality, and that the on ears were much more uncomfortable.....so unsure what to get now...
best of luck getting the HD800's fixed

PS. what I'm actually doing is looking for somewhere to live where I can set the studio and music up properly so I can really relax and enjoy listening and recording music....

Moved house a year ago - have a room just for music 8) 8)

Have really enjoyed listening to music with enough space to give the sound air.

Started recording again about a month ago....

oo...sorry to hear about that - not nice.

I lost my previous Beyers when I got a feedback loop and had to choose what to turn down first - VS2480 or headphones....

I still have the beyers, but they buzz on one side if the bass frequencies hits a certain note or presence or tone.

Hope you get the amp fixed and replace the headphones with something that excites you.






had these 2 years now - still think they are fantastic. Though those Focals look very, very nice Julio

and still using them......though may need to get replacement foam pads - 25.
