Hi !   I am in the same situation as the OP.   I have a Schiit Bifrost on the way, along with a Schiit Asgard to amp my HP. I already have a Tivoli Model Two radio station in the house (ask the wife ... *sigh*).   I want to be able to use the Bifrost DAC as a source for both my private headphone listening sessions and for outputting through the Tivoli.   Basically I would want directions as to how to optimally set that up. Is it by splitting the signal...
Thanks for the hint.   I'll see if I can get PMX 680's with remote control.
I finally got the CX680i.   I ran with them on yesterday. They are well in place and the sound quality is ok, but I wasn't overwhelmed at all. Only thing is, they're my first IEM pair and I find it too isolating at the moment. I'd rather have something a bit more "open to the outer world". I'll try them with the smaller earplugs.   Regards
    Some food for my reflexion. Thanks !   The Astro Mixamp seems difficult to find in Europe ? I haven't seen it for sale at my usual online retailers.   I came across Mad Lust Envy's and Audioholic's famous posts but not those ones.   More often than not, the Denon AH-D2000 is not included in these reviews ;-(   I'm mostly gaming, but not competitively gaming - so SQ and immersion are more important than positional audio. Also, I think I need closed headphones, as the...
Hi again you wise guys. I'm still pursuing my quests for quality (closed) gaming headphones, and I have narrowed it down to those 2 options :   - DT 770 / 600 - Denon AH-D2000   It seems I can get them for approximately the same price (200 - 230 EUR).   Which one of those 2 would you advise me to get ?   Would any of those two be a MASSIVE improvement over - say - a Senn PC350 headset ? I mean, like worth a 150 EUR difference in price (cause Xense is...
I am right in the middle of my local media store. I have seen the following models that might match my needs : Sennh. Cx680i or CX880i Audio technica ck400i Bose Mie2i jvc or ifrogz earphones Which one would you advise me to get, sound-quality wise ? Thanks !
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that important criterion. Budget-wise I don't want to put too much restriction.   I'd say anything below 100 EUR will do.   Is that way too much or way insufficient ? I have absolutely no idea. Hence this thread.   Thanks !
Hello guys,   I am once again calling upon your knowledge.   I am looking forward to buying a new pair of headphones / earphones for when I'm running outside. I currently have the basic Apple earphones that come with each iPod / iPhone. So I guess about any new ones will basically be an upgrade.   I want top quality sound Not too isolating head- / earphones because I need to hear what's happening outside (cars coming by, etc.) Something that's going to...
I'll write those voodoo numbers down. I'll come back to them when I am an audiophile initiate    I'll start with the default soundcard. I think I have just decided to go for Essence ST + DT770 / 600 (need closed cans). What do you guys think ?  
As a reminder, this quote is about Beyer DT770 / 600 @ 250 EUR.   250 EUR is the official price on beyer's official website, for the consumer edition.   Pro model starts indeed @ 179 EUR for both 80 and 250 ohms models. What would be the major difference between  the pro and consumer version apart from the "clamping force" I've read about around here ? The Pro's can be customized with either a limiter and / or headtracking (wth is that ?)   Thanks for all that input, it...
