Hi. The library at my college has Sennheiser HD 545 and I really like their open airy sound. What headphone should I get under $100 that is similar to Sennheiser HD 545 Reference?   Also, what is the best USB sound card under $50?   Thank you
Hi. I'm looking for a FLAC to MP3 converter that does its best to preserve tags and folder structure.   I'm basically slimming down for my smartphone, so sound quality is not really an issue, I just want to be able to navigate through my music as painlessly as possible.   Any recs would be appreciated.   Thanks!
Hi. I almost exclusively listen to classical music, and I don't have any fancy amps or DACs. I want to spend $100 and the best sound I can get for that price range.   Browsing the FS section of the forums, I see Alessandro MS1i, Grado SR80i, and Sennheiser 555. Which would be ideal for classical music? I am looking for airy soundstage and clarity, though anything would be an upgrade from the cheap Sennheisers I have right now. What should I get?   Thank you
Hi. I usually listen to orchestral music on my ATH-AD900 and whenver the lower instruments play, e.g. cello, trombone, etc, there is a bit of a buzzing noise. It sounds like very grainy static.   My configuration right now is playing flac on VLC through Sound Blaster X-fi Go USB sound card.   Now, my old Sennheiser HD428 doesn't have the same problem. Also, when I use onboard audio on my desktop (and also my laptop) this problem solves itself, but the sound quality...
Hi. How do I take off the pads of the ATH-AD900? I might need to see if there are hairs stuck to the drivers (buzzing noise during loud low-pitched sections of music) and also I bought a replacement pair.   Thank you
Hi. I have a secondhand pair of ATH-AD900 and whenever there is a cello or double bass part, I can hear a certain buzzing. It's not unbearably distracting, but it is certainly audible. My cheaper IEMs don't produce this buzzing noise, which leads me to conclude that it's something to do with the headphones.   Is there something I can do to reduce the buzzing noise?   Thank you
Hi. I have around $250 to spend on a pair of headphones to replace my HD 428.   The contestants are ATH-AD900 and Sennheiser 598 so far.  I'm looking mostly for full-size open (or at least semi-open) headphones. I won't be carrying these around.   I'm leaning towards ATH-AD900 since a friend of a friend is trying to sell his after having it for a couple of months, but if there's something significantly better, please let me know.   Also, some...
Hi. I am pretty new to all this audiophile stuff. I have a Superlux 668 that I just picked up a few days ago and wanted to upgrade my music from 256kbps mp3 to FLAC. Besides, I'm moving out soon and don't want to carry all my CDs.   Now, I'v ebeen ripping some CD's using Exact Audio Copy. I write down the artist, album, composer, etc. With my MP3 files, I can see from Windows media player who the artist, composer, etc is but not with the flac files.   How should...
Hi. My current setup is Sennheiser HD428 (recently developed an intermittent buzzing noise, so want to buy a new one) and Sansa Clip +.   I listen to mostly classical music. So far, headphones that I might buy are ATH AD900 (if I can find them used), ATH AD700, Sennheiser 558, maybe Audio-Technica M50, but I am looking more for open end headphones, as I usually use IEM at the library.   I'm looking for something that reproduces classical music as performed in a...
Hi. I decided to stop using a smartphone and get a dumbphone. (Saves $360/yr, with which I can probably get a decent pair of headphones).   Right now I use the Sennheiser 439, and the audio quality from the phone (upgraded with a 32GB microSD) is pretty bad. There are statics, buzzing. The only way I can have decent music if I put earplugs in my ears and listen to some ambient music. Classical and jazz are no-go.   I currently have a micro USB to 3.5 mm adapter...
