Any love for electrostatic headphones?

Unread post by Ithilstone » Mon Dec 02, 2019 10:34 pm

Some moons ago I applied and was accepted to take a part in review tour of Hifiman Jade 2 system
Those arrived today. If anyone is interested I published my initial thoughts on Jade 2 on head-fi but the thread itself has a lot of info about those as well if any one fancy a long read ;]

I have got a pair of old Audio Technica electrostatic cans, they don't get enough use but I remember them as being very neutral if a tad bass shy

I also had a set of Audio Technica ATH-7 electrostatics. Sound was very clear and I wore them to destruction.
Great headphones.
