  1. I've got some pliars, a hammer, and some glue what's the workflow for repairing your teeth?
  2. They sound very similar but don't have that ridiculous spade connector that starts going intermittent after a while that the HD25's have, for that alone HD26's are worth it for me. I've found HD26's to be much harder wearing than I thought they would be, nothing is showing any signs of weaing out in over 18 months of heavy use, which is also excellent. HD26's are a liitle heavier and bulkier than 25's so putting them on with one hand is slightly less easy, but more confortable once they're on. I like HD26's and I've finally escaped that fiddling with spade connectors that used to drive me nuts on the HD25's (five pairs, I tried hard with HD25's!)
  3. Hmm nice, quite a lot of flex, more than I thought looking at a still photo....:)
  4. How much does it flex please? Video?
  5. Thanks John for all the detail, one small step for the internet not becoming a giant seething mass of lies....:)
  6. So the idea that DAD3057's have the ground connected to the shell and the DAD6003's don't, is just hearsay?

  8. Thanks for your report, good to know, but 'off axis rejection' on an omnidirectional mic?
  9. As I have both c and b preamps I did a quick comparison and like Constantin I get the impression that c is noisier than b. Must do a proper test at some point, any suggestions about how to conduct this without testing equipment? I'd guess that you could see how the gain compares for both pre-amps by playing a fixed tone from a speaker with the mic in the same position and see whether you need more gain with one rather than the other pre-amp to achieve the same level, and having established whether there's any difference in base gain, then cover the mic with a very thick noise baffle (sound blankets etc.) and wind the gain up a comparable amount (depending on the results of the base gain setting test) record the results and compare the noise on a clear level meter perhaps in a DAW and arrive at a rough comparison of self noise? The self noise of the recorder pre-amp itself would be roughly the same? Would that work for a rough but practical test?
  10. Fixer, any good fixer can smooth your way, including through customs, no problem. Mandarin are very good. http://www.mandarinfilm.com/en/film-production-services
  11. https://www.amazon.com/MoKo-Apple-Leather-Carrying-Samsung-x/dp/B06XQXM89Z/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1542205231&sr=8-4&keywords=MoKo+Holder+Case+for+Apple+Pencil They are PU leather ie. synthetic, which is good. Firm re-inforced sides not all squishy. 3 pin Lemo adapters in place or XLR phantom adapters too...
