Great job on the guide! Although this is tempting me to open up the ol' wallet for some new toys... :)

Definitely the guys at head-fi spent time creating this quality guide for us, thanks!!

Anyone else notice how the cover font makes it look like 2012 head-F1 buying guide? wink.gif

 

 

Appreciate the work that went into this guide. I echo what others have said about font appearance and size. Even on a fairly large monitor it was hard to read.

I really like my Denon AH-D7000, but, as Extra pointed out, I didn't see much point including it, given its status.

 

Also, my experience with the new (upcoming) line is still pretty limited. That said, a pre-production sample of the AH-D7100 Artisan just arrived, which I'm looking forward to spending some time with this week.

While I didn't write the guide for the purpose of confounding newbies, I definitely didn't write it for newbies either. Following is the guide's introduction:
 

From Guide's introduction:

After we published the first Head-Fi Gift Guide, some people asked me if I could make future gift guides more accessible, particularly for non-Head-Fi'ers who might happen upon it. And while I may think of ways to do that in future updates, the Head-Fi Gift Guide is mostly intended for the more diehard Head-Fi'ers--the ones who probably won't need to look up the definition of "IEM," "24/192," "DAC," "FLAC," "XLR," or "opamp." Of course, I'd be thrilled if non-Head-Fi'ers also find the guide interesting, but at its core, this gift guide is for us, the denizens of the Head-Fi community--the hardcore headphone audio enthusiasts...

That photo does sort of look like the MDR-V600, but it is the MDR-V6. I had to do a double-take myself.

Well, I am a huge F1 fan. And maybe it was an homage to the Grado HF2. wink.gif

Thanks for the feedback. We will take all of this feedback into consideration as we put together the next one.

Number of reviews for Skullcandy: 2 AKG: 0

I feel the AKG K550 really deserves a place there, as it's one of the best sounding, noise isolating, full sized cans in its price range.

 

Nice buying guide. Gave a nice insight into a few of the top picks in every category.

 

The page issue can be avoided by reading page by page which is what I did.

Not sure what your question is? IEMs aren't earbuds...the guide contains IEMs and headphones, just not earbuds.

As a newbie in the headphone world I found the buying guide very helpful!

Thanks for all the effort put into it!

Very nicely done guide.  No Ultrasones though.  Those Edition -10's are the prettiest headphones ever, imo.
