Heya,   HDtracks.com has higher sampled music.   I will state frankly that you won't notice hardly any difference going from 16bit to 24bit. Nor 44.1khz to 380+khz. It's pointless. Don't get caught in the "upsampling" trap.   What is your current gear that you're trying to "upgrade" from?   I'll recommend now, not knowing a thing, to spend your money on better headphones, rather than thinking you need differently encoded/recorded/sampled music. Really high quality...
Heya,   NVX XPT100 on sale for $80 right now. I'd snag it.   This headphone is a clone of the Fischer Audio FA003, and Brainwavz  HM5. All the same headphone.   Very best,
Heya,   Frankly it doesn't matter what you set anything to. Whatever you play back is going to be played at whatever it was recorded/encoded at. Nothing more. Taking something's bit rate, and sample rate, and raising it up doesn't do anything. It just changes a number in a piece of software. But the sound is literally the same. The whole "upsampling" thing is a huge gimmick and pointless. If your music was recorded at 16 bits and 44.1khz, that's what it is. Taking it up...
Heya,   Asus Xonar DG - $30. Dolby headphone, onboard opamp for amplification. Good to go.   Very best,
 Heya, All I can really suggest is to ignore frequency response graphs, especially comparing an open air to a closed back, and don't trust the bass frequencies as measured. What you hear and what you see on those graphs are quite different. I say that as someone with 40+ pairs of headphones and very few, a handful, are remotely close to what the graphs imply they "should" sound like. Very best,
 Heya, Correct. They're generic. But the headband works great. I use these on my Hifimans, Denons and Beyers. Fits them all just fine. Snaps on. Snaps off. Adds a whole new set of padding. Very comfortable. Takes pin point pressure off your scalp. Very best,
 Nope. Both will easily drive virtually all headphones. The NFB series will drive planar magnetics better, if that's in your future. The Vali will drive all other headphones just fine, except a select few (and of those select few, all of which happen to be planar magnetics). Very best,
Heya,   Schiit Modi Schiit Vali (very affordable total tube setup, hybrid)   Audio GD NFB 12, 15.32, etc (any version)   Very best,
Heya,   Very weird. Reference quality for rap/hip-hop, and a budget that is a factor of 9's. Just out of curiosity, Indian?   Anyways, look to: AKG K550 AKG K271 MKII SoundMAGIC HP100 Shure SRH840 Sony MDR1R AudioTechnica A900X   Very best,
 Heya, The "DAC" does not do this. At all. A DAC merely renders 0's an 1's to a sine wave. It doesn't do positional anything. What the signal is, and how it's processed prior to analog conversion is what's doing that. Positional audio is emulated by software. This processing is applied to the signal before conversion to analog and sent to your headphones/speakers. This literally limits you to using a soundcard, as that's the only way to have emulated surround sound. The...
