    Short lived rebranded version of German Maestro under the Charter Oak label. They had slightly different features; for example, this version had velour ear pads and closed backs. The GM version had open backs with velour and pleather with closed backs. Anyway, I got them from this weird music upstart called hellomusic.com that went bust. They would sell special buys and demo gear for cheap. $199 for these cans which came in the most beautiful piano lacquered box you've ever seen. Great for tracking and they sound really nice, like older Senn's from the 80's/90's. Made in Deutschland.

    Old photos when I was using my Total Bithead. I graduated to a Schiit Valhalla 2 and one of their DACs.

    The Wall of Cans I consult depending on the needs.
    Fostex T50RP, Sennheiser HD600, Realistic LV-20
    Obviously single, drilling holes in an oak veneered entertainment cabinet :crazy:

    And for when you want it full spectrum top to bottom, punchy & clear, these trial & error modified Fostex,' that for whatever reason, sound better on a little 12 watt, 1966 HH Scott 200B tube amp are Maxell Man Chair daily drivers.
    I don't know why, even dedicated headphone amps and decent vintage receivers don;t sound as good on these $10 thrift-store-rescue planars as a very simple tube amp.

    The ugly cable is being replaced, and the cans are on the bench as I type this. They are Phillips, and my friend is enjoying my Sennheiser HD 280 pro's.

    Since I finally have a pic worth showing off on here....

    As for any processing done to it, I changed it to black and white, and then added the 'Old Photo' effect in GIMP.

    The pic was taken with my recently-acquired Logitech C920 HD webcam.

    Great idea for the holder. May have to look into something similar.

    I heard the SE Master 1's about a year ago, tried to save up some money but was too late.... Far beyond any headphone on the market that i have heard so far!

    Superlux HD-330. Blatant Beyer ripoffs, but these are open-backed. Quite astounding in every respect, especially at the price. (And yes, they can still pinch your fingertips like the 770s!)
