Quick update: just hooked up the Mogami 2534 with Rean Neutrik jacks.   I think that these are the best 25USD i have spent for a long time. Initial impressions are clear gains in separation, sound stage wideness and depth, quieter background, fuller bass. Everything sounds more organic, defined and alive.   1 step closer to having the band in front of me (if there is one). Very happy!
Happy owner of a red pair for a couple of weeks and probably 60hours of use. Most of these through PC running spotify premium, using a split usb cable to power my Fulla amp from an external powered usb hub. Also used my Audiolab 8200CD as DAC (foobar2k/Asio, usb in, rca to 3,5 out). A lot of different styles thrown at them (classical, rock, metal, blues, hip hop, electronica etc.).   By the way, a lot of it found through this huge database of reviews. Even if you don't...
New FS owner since yesterday. And a happy one at that!   My current set up is an Asus netbook streaming Spotify (premium at the moment) or playing wav/FLAC/MP3 320K through Foobar/Asio combo. Phones are HD 558 slightly modded using Dynamat. Previously I used a cheap external USB sound card and Fiio E11 amp.   My 'reference' set up is 2 way tower speakers fed by Audiolab 8200CD / Hedo preamp-amp / using XLRs / mogami speaker cables and furutech power cables, all set up...
I have a relatively 'young' system (less than 100 hours played). Having been bitten/beaten by the improvement 'bug' and reading mostly good things about the SBH, I went ahead and bought it.   To *my* ear it has brought something into the sound. I *think* it is for the better. But what is it?   Overall I perceive it to be (I am quoting the OP. I am not quoting the last part of the passage simply because I probably can't discern these qualities in music (yet?).)     I have...
Writing as I am listening to the E11 at the scenario low V / HG /EQ 0. I think I will give this setting some time to grow on me. The result vs the high V / Low G / EQ 1 is better tracking, seperation and an airier feeling overall. I am working on the iPod EQs to see what sounds better (to me). Piano seems to be doing the trick (for now).
Let me add first that indeed this is a very readable and down to earth review. In a lot of points I cought myself thinking 'I couldn't have said that better my self'.   I recently got my E11 reading the overwhelmingly good things about it. I battled it out with E7. I already had E5. Basically my decision was to go for the portability of E5 with my KSC75's and the power of the E11 with my (to arrive soon hopefully) 668Bs for home listening.   I subscribe 100% on...
1st & 2nd pic is my most portable setup. Bluetooth connection through a simple receiver.   3rd pic my portable at home setup (meaning no pc soundcard used)      
Attempted it on my ksc75's.   Using JRivers parametric equaliser. Results below.   Sounds somewhat muffled, but definitely easier on the ears. I will play around a bit to see the outcomes of different parameters.   Electri-Q format not suppported and I can't get NWEQ to customise.   Many thanks to the original poster!  
Bigshot, thank you for the clarification on the 'flattening' approach to remove as much colouration as possible. So what you are saying, if I read it correctly, is not about EQing the music, but about 'neutralising' the headphones prior to listening anything.   Any hands on tutorial on how to do that? Would this be the way?   http://www.head-fi.org/t/413900/how-to-equalize-your-headphones-a-tutorial
On the amplification part (being less intrusive on the original sound) I understand it more, I think, than EQ. My question about EQ is this.   If the sound editor/mixer has already EQed the sound to the point that the artist is happy with the overall outcome, what are we actually trying to correct? The obstacles/alterations that our equipment has brought in the mix? And if so how do we actually lessen these obstacles? Is it through better or even perhaps less...
