It's been a while. Thought I would chime in again. I double checked the model number against the original review and it's the same headphones. Also checked the Monoprice website. I see they have many model headphones but there are only a couple that one might use for studio/client use. The 8323 mode...

Wrecking Crew story May/June 2015

Kind of an odd interview and story. Not your usual type of in-depth interview/discussion. Was something left out? Was looking forward to some insider insight into the making of the film and the people surrounding it. Anyway, can't wait to see the movie. I remember Tommy Tedesco's Guitar Player colum...

I can see how this problem might have escaped attention - especially in a live situation. The guy I spoke with at ART hinted that it was related to the blend control on channel 2. I supposed they'll get around to fixing it but I didn't really want to wait for a solution that might be months away. I ...

ART Pro VLA II fiasco

If you own an ART Pro VLA II compressor - especially a newer unit - you might want to test it to see if your unit has a channel leakage problem. I recently bought a brand new unit and as soon as I got it in the door I set it up for some preliminary testing just to make sure everything worked as expe...

I have a dbx 386 here in my studio. It's nice. Typical 12AX7 starved-plate design. Mine is over 10 years old and still working great. I don't use the digital out option anymore (just use the analog outs). My only complaint about the digital output feature is that when you shut off the unit, it doesn...

lol I used to work for Radio Shack back in the mid-70's as an after-school part time job (yes I'm that old ha ha). I agree - it used to be a pretty cool place for us nerds/gearheads to buy decent quality parts and accessories. Even their stereo gear wasn't bad. I have a Realistic receiver I bought i...

Win 7/8 Bit depth & sampling rates

I'm just now making the leap from Windows XP to Windows 7 and one of the features that seems to have gotten lost in the transition is the ability to look at WAV file attributes such as bit depth, sampling rate, mono or stereo, etc. All that info was included in Windows (XP) Explorer but I don't see ...

I have been using Audio Technica ATH-M40fs phones for a number of years now. I know you can find better phones than these but I'll explain why I like them. The "fs" reference means they are field serviceable. You can buy all the parts directly from AT and the piece prices are very very reasonable. T...

thanks guys - I guess I'll do the right thing and just make some type of custom solution - perhaps non-foam based since I'm not really moving the mics anywhere.

I think I've done more damage to gear just from opening it up to see how it works than actual operating/performance damage lol Replacing tubes in some of this stuff can be a headache lol.

Microphone carrying/storage cases

Just curious - I have enough microphones here with the original storage/carrying cases. Some I've had for over 10 years now. The problem I'm seeing is the foam interior to these cases - the foam material is starting to crumble apart just from reaching into the case and pulling the microphone out rep...

Actually I think I posted a comment once before about Monoprice. I bought a pair of their headphones based on a Tape Op review from a year or two ago. I am still using the phones here in my studio. I personally didn't like the way they sounded. In fact, in my opinion, they were the worst sounding he...

Always interested in the topic of studio headphones. I've had a number of drummers in my studio over the years who've used those VF phones. I don't recall any of them complaining about defects but maybe they didn't say anything because I didn't ask. I tried a pair on one time and couldn't stand to w...

As a follow up to my original post - I went ahead and put the headphones into combat and ran about a half dozen sessions with them. Just to get client feedback. Mostly they were used by either drummers (during tracking with a band) or lead vocalists doing vocal overdubs in various styles. To date no...
