Not true. I actually used to have a Toshiba laptop with harmon/kardon branding on it and the speakers were actually really good considering they were laptop speakers. Much better than a lot of those cheap 2.0 speakers. The headphone out was also pretty good as well. Decently amped, could drive my HE-400 and sounded fairly good. I have a Xonar ST as well and while the difference is apparent, I don't think the Toshiba laptop sounded bad at all.
That's like saying i feel sorry for you for thinking that (insert headphone) is the best headphone because people here on head-fi says it sounds good. Audio is pretty subjective so different people have different tastes in sound. Don't understand why we can't all just respect each others' opinions.  On topic though, i always let my friends try my stuff out when visit and they usually don't have much to say, other than "how do i wear this without ruining my hair"
does it have to be headphones? i've tried apple earpods and i remember them to be not very good at noise isolation.
well from the criteria you've laid out, it sounds like you're looking for some supraaural (on-ear) headphones. they tend to not create that good a seal (for me anyways) so they should leak sound in and probably not too much out, though to be honest i don't have a single pair of supraaural headphones so i don't really have much to recommend
I had originally said that the G2 sounds like crap, but I've finally got it to sound actually really good (well i guess i should say that i got it to sound like most other normal DAP's). Normally the soundstage is super compressed sounding making the G2 sound very terrible, but i played around more with the settings inside Neutron and i found that disabling the Generic Driver (under the Audio Hardware section) makes the G2 sound much better and more like my ipod video. The...
First video the guy claims equalizers kill headphones and that you shouldn't colour sound with software. Second video he's all for equalization... This guy....
I'm going to assume you're using apple earPODS. Those aren't actually that bad. The slightly older apple earbuds aren't that bad either actually. The M-50 are also slightly over-rated headphones because they're so popular and most headphones that are popular are going to proportionately have more good reviews. Of course, the M-50 being popular headphones also increases how many fakes there are out there, but since you carefully examined it, I don't think it's fake. Maybe...
If you're looking to get the DT990, you should also look into the DT880. There's been many a debate as to which is the truly better, and they're both around the same price. The E10 is probably enough for most 250ohm headphones, but it doesn't have a microphone-in socket so you'll have to run the ModMic all the way to your computer.
you should consider what your priority is first. do you want really good sound with a mic attached for occasional use? if so, then get a nice pair of headphones like the ones mentioned here with some form of dac/amp and get something like a desktop mic or a ModMic. however, if you're going to be using the mic all the time for voip during games and etc, you should really just get a dedicated headset. you don't REALLY need a dac/amp to get really good sound; i believe it...
I have a G2 and i have to say i think it sounds like crap. Soundstage is pretty compressed as OP noted and it just overall has a kind of weird sound signature that I'm not fond of. I wouldn't exactly describe it as cold/analytical either. Guess i'm sticking to my ipod video. Also why does everyone hate plastic? I mean yeah the iphone and HTC One use metal and it feels and looks industrial and solid, but the LG G2 by no means feels cheap, WITH EXCEPTION OF THE BACK. I don't...
