Msb Analog Dac - Appreciation Thread - Review - Page 3

Thanks Dan! Great review.
This Dac is top of my hit list. Part of me is thinking if i really need balanced outputs, the other half is deliberating whether or not the upgraded power supply is really worth the coin and my wallet is most displeased with the whole thing.
Kidneys are just not worth that much anymore frown.gif

These aren't witty or clever comments per se, but they're honest descriptions of crappy headphones that sound absolutely hilarious:

SEVEN.

One was broken upon arrival

One broke before I could listen for more than 10 minutes

I personally broke two of them after I reviewed them because I hated them that much.

Gave two away.

Still have one.

Yeah? Well, the Bluetooth model they sent me didn't even have the 'on' button attached to the circuitry. It just wasn't there. It's like they forgot to put that part on during the manufacturing process.

He's keeping every single pair as punishment.

 

Lol why din't you introduce him to good cans? I'm sure Beats have a high resale value, with all 6 he can get some really nice stuff, and why 6? does each Solo sound different from the other? That's how bad their Quality Control is?biggrin.gif

Sometimes after a long session of Licensed to Ill, I swap it out of the CD player for a little bit of Ludwig Van's #9. I think some of the Beastie Boy flavor gets on the Beethoven disc, and I swear there's a little bit more syncopation in the 2nd movement, and about 3/4 of the way through the 3rd movement there's a little bit of brass monkey. Seriously, who doesn't want a hint of girls during the Ode an die Freude finale?

Also, be careful you don't accidently clean off the green sharpie markings on your CD that make it play better. If you do, you'll have to redraw them. Don't use a regular black sharpie either---it has to be green for best results.

This is my first post so a warm hello to everyone !
I have been gleaning info from this forum for years and have bought amps/headphones/IEM from recommendations. I hav been happy with suggested buys such as my Ety 4S and also a pair of Senn 580.....Different sound granted but happy none the less.
I upgraded my portable amp to a desk based tube amp and seperate DAC, both of which were hand built by enthusiasts and have a great sound.
I know longer have the Senn 580, only use my Ety's un amped withh an ipod classic and the desk amp/DAC were stored away.
Now......
Im working from home on a permanent basis via a laptop in the spare room so descided to dust off the tube amp/DAC and look for a set of full sized headphones to make the my shift less boring.
After reading reviews I bougt a pair of Audio Technica ATH-M50S and plugged everything up.....Not happy:(

To me the sound has no mids and very narrow soundstage which is not to my taste.
So hopefully I will be returning them for a refund very soon !

What I am looking for is a full size headphone to match up to my tube amp and seperate DAC combo. I am looking for a warm sound and nothing too analytical but must have a detailed sound with a realistic and not overblown bass very good mids and trebble but without sibilance as I really really hate that. A large soundstage is also important with instrument placement easily identified.

My music taste is wide and varied from rock, blues, pop with some classical.

Could you please suggest a headphone that would fit the above criteria but be within a £200 price budget.....
Not too much to ask then !


Kindest regards
Gary.

This was in response of how to clean the pads on the HE-400, the name has been omitted for obvious reasons.

 

 

 

 

Do you take the pads off the headphones first or do you keep them on and just dip the heaphones in the water?

lolol was that a serious question, or sarcasm? :D

Nothing says hi fi like getting an aneurysm while getting your head pounded in with dank bass.

Totally worked btw. I'm vain like that. *sniff* 

Watching one of your videos I thought you were good looking which came as a surprise as I had pictured all headfiers as being ugly 50 year old virgins for some reason...
