Re: MS-PRO - Longevity

As a side note. I don't see another thread on this and don't want to make one. What is improved with the MS-PROe? I notice a solid $250 price jump.

Being that my phones are now close to 4 years old, still using the oringal pads, I've washed them maybe twice. but my ears are basically sitting on the divider between the cups and the driver.

Re: Source for MS-Pro

Thanks for the advice Marcus. based on this id love to buy the m-dac. i do have another question however.
