I'm looking to replace my aging HD600s. I could purchase replacement drivers, but thought I might get a different pair of headphones that don't need amplification instead.   Budget - about the same price range as HD600, comfort is very important. I have the Audio-Technica ESW-9 which I love the sound but is not comfortable to wear for more than 30 mins. I'm looking to get the same kind of sound signature as either the HD600 or ESW-9.    Any recommendations? 
Hi,   I bought the Topping NX1 headphone amplifier, it is my first portable headamp. I tested it with the Sennheiser HD600 and it sounded terrible. When first powered on, everything sounded compressed, there was no separation and sound stage. It also sounded slightly muffled.   At first I thought there was something wrong with my Sennheiser, but plugging it into my Soundblaster ZX card it sounded fine. The ZX has a built in headphone amp rated to 600ohms. I left the...
Hi,   I have a pair of 10 yr old HD-600 that I hadn’t used for a couple of years when the sound gave out on the left side. Recently I opened up the grill and cups to check, didn’t see anything wrong and put them back. Voila, the sound came back. However, the cans now sound very constrained with zero soundstage, and clarity has suffered. I am playing them amped with the iphone as a source.    With the iphone and same amp, I then compared it to the Audio-technica ESW-9....
I bought a pair last week and I'm loving it. Not sure how durable the BA-200 is, can previous owners share? Should I buy another pair since this seems to be heck of a deal?
Hi guys,   I live in a small apartment, and I need a solution to enable me to watch TV or movies at night with my wife without disturbing the sleeping children.   Should I just get a splitter that lets me plug in two ¼ in headphone jacks? Or is there a dedicated box I can buy with two headphone jacks, that I can connect to my receiver?   I’ve used splitters before with 3.5mm jacks and they were terrible, often losing sound on one side of the headphone or...
I'm currently using IEMs when I run, but the seal isn't great and I have to keep adjusting them to get decent bass. I'm thinking maybe over-ear headphones would be better? Any recommendations, with remote for apple devices? By the way, I'm using MEElectronic M6P currently.
I agree with you that the classic LOD connection works best. However, I currently use my ipod touch for a lot of stuff other than music. I don't own an iphone, and I use apps heavily on the touch. To downgrade to a classic just for music is going to be tough and carrying two devices around is not appealing. I'd rather live with an ungainly LOD/adapter connection than lose all my apps on a classic.   The reason I don't own an iphone is the same, I don't want to carry...
I just bought an LOD cable and an amp a month ago, so definitely not. My current ipod touch battery life isn't great, so I may get a classic instead just for music. 
Hi,   I'm looking for a set of headphones small enough to be put in a carrying case, but I won't be using them as portables. I want Open headphones to be used indoors, but I will need to carry them around in a bag.    I am sorely tempted to get the ESW9, but it is a closed headphone. I love the warm sound signature of the ESW9, an open version of that would be perfect. I've auditioned the Grado SR225i and find it very detailed, but too bright and fatiguing for my...
Hi all,   I'm looking for a set of headphones that I can fold up, put in a carrying case and bring with me on business trips. Supra-aurals and IEMs will not be as comfortable for extended listening sessions, so circumaural would be best. However I don't know any that can be stored easily in a suitcase or bag.    You guys are a lot more knowledgeable. Please help a newbie. thanks!
