These headphones are made for listening to modern extreme genres of loud brickwalled poor-quality metal. They smoothen out spikiness and make drums sound so powerful and quick as if your head was...
Greetings, We all know it's coming, whether we like it or not. The wireless wave is upon us. Pretty much every major earphone manufacturer has a wireless option, and there are countless others...

Whee bit out of the $500 range ;) If it's for the F1J... passive would be hard to do. 10K input means a passive in the 1K range which aren't common.
You could buy fixed attenuators to bring the PWD2 into the 40+ range for pretty cheap.post #1023 of 16681/31/13 at 6:17pmQuote:

I've been really loving my rig and having to force myself to go to sleep since I got the PWDII in and swapped the caps out in my Super 7.
Will check out the Stratus on the 17th, have heard it is fantastic...post #1027 of 16682/2/13 at 10:48ampost #1028 of 16682/15/13 at 12:16ampost #1029 of 16682/15/13 at 12:40pmThread Starterpost #1030 of 16682/15/13 at 5:51pmpost #1031 of 16682/15/13 at 5:58pmpost #1032 of 16682/15/13 at 9:29pm
Direct from PS Audio. It's $1000 off with free bridge but you got to trade in a DAC of any make/model/value.
