Quality of electronics in signal path 900x over. 16 Bit FLAC on a phone is plenty for me.
I sold my Galaxy S3 and Htc One (M7) because of a hiss at low volume. Has anyone heard the hiss on the M7 and can verify it has been eliminated on the M8?   Although the nexus 4 didnt have as great measurements as the above units, It's hiss was significantly less.
I had the XB1000 and XB700. Still have the XB500 and XB920. In my humble opinion here is a short description of each...  The XB500 are a muddy mess but don't fatigue. (I'll sell these) The XB700 are much cleaner than the 500 and dont have the midbass hump and lots of fun subbass, still a bit of fatigue in the mid treble. The XB1000 have two treble humps and no sub bass... These were really bad and had two treble humps that weren't cool. The XB920 are my fav sounding,...
 Keep me posted with how you like the Shures. Very interested too!
The Shure SRH-1540 look very interesting based on their freq response. I'm a bit worried vocals wont be very "lush" and perhaps a bit recessed. Mad dogs are also something i've considered, I've read some negative comments about their bass being a bit too flat. I'm looking for a bit of a boost.   Has anyone compared the Shure SRH-1540 to the LCD2 directly?   I also want to toss out there that these will be use mainly for stuff like Minimal and Vocal Trance (Female...
Thanks for another suggestion Mshenay! I've tried the HE500 before, they were alot more comfortable than expected (Bonus). However the vocals had no "meat" to them, the subbass digs deep however it was merely flat, I'm definitely looking for more. NZtechfreak I agree with your above statement, the Audeze offerings are much more what I am looking for.
Thanks for the input, any other suggestions too add to this list? I'm unsure with how I feel about open cans.. which leads me to the closed Audeze but I've heard it has a bit of a treble spike. Also unsure about the comfort and weight of these cans. The LCD-2 I almost purchased about a year back but didn't due to the poor connectors on earlier revs breaking and poor comfort/weight. The LCD2 always did seem like it would be the "ideal" for this. I've read that the pro700mk2...
I have tried so many cans... nothing does it for me. I *really* love the sound and vocals of my ASG-2 but want more subbass and in the factor in a pair of cans.    Let me emphasize again... I want butter smooth vocals, *NEVER* fatigue, loads of sub bass. I've tried quite a few cans with no avail...   DT770/80 - Nice sub bass, massive treble spike Countless sennheiser 5xx - Vocals are nice but can sound nasaly, no sub bass. M100... Nice, but vocals aren't there, bit...
plz del
Dont you worry about Damping factor with such a high impedance inline? (There is a general 1/8th rule in engineering) I could see this really messing up your bass.......
