I made a similar change and it sounded horrible. Immediately put the JRCs back in and everything sounded much better.

 

Are there any good op-amps replacements for the stock op-amps on the Ti-HD?

There may be some good combinations out there, but I haven't bothered experimenting because I like how the Titanium HD sounds in its stock configuration already. I'd likely find myself disappointed again and again and again.

Hey guys can someone please tell me if there anyway to send gameplay sound out of the ps4 via optical and do chat thru the ps4 controller? If so what cable do I need?

I was just reading the ps4 3.5mm x2 thread and I couldn't find d a definite answer.

Thanks

Have you guys read up on this new Cayin C5 portable amp? It supposedly has similar juice to the E12, maybe a little more? I'm also reading that the sound quality compares to that of the iCAN, which was noticeably better than the E12 to me.

Very interesting...

I am definitely happy with the OPA2111AM swap out of the 2114's...essentially followed this guide HERE. They were expensive but love them.

What did you like so much about the change?

I can't speak for OPA2111AMs, but putting LM4562/LME49xx0 variants in place of the stock JRC 2114Ds is a total no-go for me, never again. Everything sounded kinda raspy and shrill on top of the extreme V-shaped response.

It's simple he'll assign the HD800 a perfect score all across the board

I want to buy a pair so bad but I'm too worried I'll get them and not like them or decide it's too incremental of an improvement for the cost. I live in a big city with no high end headphone boutiques. First world problems :P

I'd buy them in a heartbeat if I had a money for them and an amp powerful enough to drive them to their full potential

One thing with the Skullcandy SLYR headset, the earpads are really poor quality. Mine fell apart from normal use after ~7 months. I contacted Skullcandy to try and get earpad replacements but they keep telling me "they haven't received any shipment for them."

The Gold... I can't say. Don't have a reference to what it sounds closest to.

 

The Pulse Elite reminded me of the DT770, with less kick on the bass but smoother, more upfront mids.

And how was the positioning?

That may be a while. I offered him my T1 for review before, but now he's on sabbatical and taking a break for a bit before he comes back to reviewing. Can't blame him, now he can actually play and enjoy games rather than analyze and critique the sound of a pair of headphones. And since the T1s have been sold he won't be able to borrow mine anymore.
