I don't know about other 'mallus' here, haven't come across any yet. But I'm sure as they say, since there was a mallu on the Moon running a tea shop when Mr Armstrong and co landed there and tried to plonk their US flag onto the ground, there are more of them here as well!

diyaudiocart.com is one of the most amazing sites for all things audio in all of India. Check it out. Owned by a Malayalee as well.

They also do a lot of custom work like building speakers.

 

Nice! I would like to pay them a visit when I pass through Cochin.

Comparative Review of the Titan 1 with the R-50 up. Review page does not allow more than 10k words so had to put it up in a thread.

Has been reading about DTS Headphone X.... Lenovo A700 has dolby atmos.... 

I have tried these things in past and now settled on process-free sound. Honestly, you should try the very true to bit, raw sound which the musician produces. He wants you to listen to it in its true form and which I think pleased me the most. EQing, Dolby, DTS, SRS WOW, THX, Virtual Surround, BBX... been there, done all of these. These get tiresome after time.

 

There are some cool tricks that you can make to bypass any sound processing performed in your laptop, or sound card. This is possible when actual file data is directly sent to sound card's DAC. For example my Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Pro sounds a lot better when I use these tricks. Nothing difficult in it, just get Foobar2000 player and load any one of two plugins, WASAPI(event) or Kernel Streaming. For me WASAPI is providing better SQ than KS, and a whole lot than the default output without KS/WASAPI.

Complete agree with you on this. There are some people who like these software-based so called "listening experience enhancers" and some who absolutely despise them.

Anyone on here using an android app to control foobar?

 

The Oppa HA-1 app took my laziness to a whole new level, the only thing it cant show me is my current playlist. Although it allows me to switch songs, I can't pick the specific one I want from a playlist. That's the only thing it misses really. The Oppo app functions via bluetooth which makes pairing very simple. I think android based foobar controllers would need to be paired/setup in a different way with a pc, right?

I use this one : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cav.foobar2000controller&hl=en

 

I recommend you to try this, it shows current playlist as well as other playlists, lets you play any file on your PC (can navigate to any drive and path) and also the album art. Almost feels as if it's the native player on your phone. It doesn't pair over bluetooth though, it uses wifi.

Hello there, what source do you use for the HD650? And what was the previous headphone you used?

Thanks

Had the hd598 before that. 
Sold it cause it sounded like garbage, what a waste of money the HD598 was.

Welcome. The Senn 650 is anything but harsh. Its warm and very forgiving and definitely darker than its sibling the 600 or the 800. As Shreyas asked, I am also curious to know about what upstream equipment you are pairing with the 650.

I have a very old Pioneer AV System but I just ordered a Schiit Magni and Modi last night.
