New Headphones

Took the opportunity to also order the Audio Technica ATH-AD700. These seem to be reasonably cheap at around US$120 a pair and are open back. The only problem being a lower impedance. Reading a post on the Bottlehead forum, it seemed to suggest that the frequency response for f-1dB is still a respectable 30Hz with the standard build, and may get lower with a high coupling cap. Another addition to the arsenal. Made contact with a local Melbourne dealer of the Grado, and have lined myself up for a pair of the SR60i. With three new sets of cans arriving within the next few weeks, it will make an exciting time to compare how they all sound.

Another note is that I am trying to order the Yamamoto HA-02 headphone amp. Many suggest that this was designed for the Audio Tehnica, especially their higher end models (W1000 and W5000). Time will see how that pans out in terms of pricing and availability.
