ROTFL. Congrats on the equipment they tried them with. Layering IMHO is the field where no today's headphone might equal with the K1000 but each component of the system must be of decent quality, including interconnects.

It was one of the reasons why I rate Headphonia so low. Thanks for reminding.

They even deleted my comments regarding the DX100. Seems like since they have to pay to demo the unit they are not happy with ibasso. They want their free hand outs. Someone was trolling saying everyone prefers the Hifiman 801 to it when that is totally false. Not everyone loves rolled off treble and a requirement to buy a game amp to be able to use it as a portable DAP.

Headfonia's layout is cluttered. Categories overlap and you find yourself using the search engine rather than just browsing in a natural way like on Tyll's site. I'm a web developer so messy redundant interface design drives me insane.

Headfonia has more reviews more often.

 

Not too keen on the lack of updates from Inner Fidelity lately.

Yeah, sorry about that. Been having troubles finding headphones I'd like to review. Also doing a lot of amp measurements lately to develop the measurements routine that don't show up as posts.

 

 

 

On another note: While I'm thankful for all the nice comments here, I'm not really comfortable being in a "Deathmatch" with Mike.  It's not really a competition, it's not really a zero sum game.  With the ease of flicking around between websites these days, there's plenty of room for various opinion.  I like the fact that a person is able to get many points of view quickly on teh web. Each has their own style and flavor, and readers can get multiple points of view from which one can get a pretty good perspective. It's not limited to publications either: lots of good info on Head-Fi, Changstar, Hoffman forums, etc. that's a win for all, IMHO.

 

I'm also a bit jealous of Mike's photos.  Really nice work there.

 

Alright, I'm out. I'll try to post more often.

Whatever happened to that HE-400 review?

post #67 of 108

Love Innerfidelity. Like Headfonia's pictures but don't really read the reviews.

 

GoldenEars I love as well, and since I can read Korean I can appreciate the site a lot more in detail.

Enjoyed your post.

 

Thanks. I noticed in your sig you are using the g-cush. Extremely comfortable. But if you still have the stock pads, you should try them again - I think they can recover some of the sub bass. It did for me. Try a bit of bass boost, too. I definitely get a rumble in the 20-40 hz.. quite amazing for an open back. I can achieve it with the Q701, too.

AFAIK Tyll doesn't like it due to the tizzy treble, so he's holding it off indefinitely.

Headfonia makes for an interesting read but I find some of the statements conflicting. I do enjoy the Headfonia blog but feel InnerFidelity to be more subjective.

Tyll, i saw a post with different headphone amps. Are you going to post the measures for each one? i saw only the O2 graphs. 

 

I think both (headfonia and innerfidelity) do a nice job. One site provides objective reviews, and the other subjective points of view. It depends.

To me, it's all pretty subjective.

I've gone back several times.  No matter how much boost or bassy pad, if I can't stand wearing the d*mned can for more than thirty minutes, there's really no point, is there?  Had the Q as well.

Tyll seems to love the Denon D2000/D5000/D7000 series but haven't mention much about the D600 yet. Makes me wonder if it is the same case as the he-400, in which he did not review because of the tizzy treble.

Did Tyll got the he-400 with the rev 1 drivers? I remember one website that mention that the rev 1 got many flaws so Tyll might did not like it.
