 I've PM'd James and Joe to ask if they changed anything affecting SQ.  Hopefully should hear something back, and then we can put this one to rest one way or the other.  There's been no mention in the changelogs anyway, and I personally haven't heard any change. Curious why/how are you so sure of the change.How long between testing? Did you back and forth several times? Did you volume match (with an SPL meter and a test tone)? Did you use same track? I'm simply curious as...
How the headphones sound: 1 How the headphones feel/comfort: 2   Accessories: 3 How the headphones look: 4 How the headphones were priced/value: 5   How the headphones are packaged: 6 How the headphone packaging looks: 7   1 and 2 are really the things that matter most.  3 (accessories) not a deal breaker - but things like spare pads, spare cable, adaptors can be very helpful. 4 (looks) depends on whether they're being worn portably or not.  5 price and resale...
If you're looking for a lot of sub-bass - give the Tekfusion Twinwoofers a look.  They surprised me.  Not really my type of IEM SQ but might be exactly what you're looking for .....   http://www.head-fi.org/products/tekfusion-twinwoofers/reviews/11420 http://www.head-fi.org/products/tekfusion-twinwoofers/reviews/11474 
Thank you gentlemen - that makes more sense to me now 
Stumbled across this in another thread. Doesn't sound right to me .......  Why would dropping sound output from Windows (to amp) drop the bitrate?  Can anyone please help me understand this?  Thanks in advance.
Owned all 3 - sold DT880 and HD600 recently.   This might interest : http://www.head-fi.org/t/727739/comparison-review-beyerdynamic-s-siblings-the-classic-dt880-vs-the-flagship-t1   HD600 and DT880 (or T1) are IMO a wonderful match together - both reasonably neutral, but the HD600 more natural sounding with better timbre and overall tonality.  The DT880 (and T1) are more neutral, with more speed and detail.   The good thing about your Xonar is that if it's not quite...
 Ummmm - if you actually go back through what Arcright00 was asking - it was actually about replaygain (which I thought was a pretty legitimate comment even though its inclusion doesn't bother me).  He didn't mention anything about last.fm or scrobbling.  I think you've got your wires crossed. 
Used to love the Shure Olives (when I had my 425s and 535s).  As I allude to in most of my reviews, I've never been treble sensitive, so I find the S5's tonality actually pretty good.
 Agree - they work well, fit well (T400s), are extremely comfortable - and definitely my tip of choice.
 At the same time - all that's really happening is that a digital signal is being changed to analogue.  Even if the CPU was under more load - it shouldn't change the actual signal delivered by the DAC.  If it's overloaded, it might glitch - but it shouldn't actually change the frequency response. Once again - Joe / James - we know you follow these threads - it would be nice if you told us one way or the other please.
