Hi guys glad to be here I'm looking to level up my headphones.
Needed some help finding one but the thread I started almost 24 hours ago still is not showing up!!!! How long does it take to get moderator approval?!?!?!
I am happy to now have finally joined the Head-Fi community, this is my first post.
I am living in Germany and am using the following gear:
- Mac mini Mid 2009 (ML 10.8.5, 64 GB OWC SSD, 16 GB OWC RAM, PureMusic 2.02),
- T+A DAC 8 connected via USB 2 to the mini,
- Bakoon HPA-21 Headphone amplifier,
- Sennheiser HD 800 Headphone.
I could honestly not be happier with this set-up which makes me smile every time I am switching it on.
I'm new here, and basically not an audiophile but just aiming to listen to good sounding music!
-AudioTechnica ATHM50 (portable mode)
-AKG K550 (loving it being comfortable, and being less bass-y)
-FiiO X12 + LOD
-Ipod Classic 160GB
Hi guys :)
I have been on head-fi four couple of years now just reading many threads and head-fi helped me with purchasing my curren setup which is HD558 with e10 but i am currently looking into upgrading the rig so that means lot of head-fi again :D Anyway i decided to get more involved with the community here and invest more time and money into this hobby.
I've been lurking on these forums for over a year now and I finally decided I should create a login so I can participate!
I am the proud owner of some HiFiMAN HE-500 headphones which I think are just amazing. However, my perfectionist nature means I am always on the lookout for something better! I am currently using an O2/ODAC Amp/DAC out of my Hackintosh but have recently ordered an Audio-GD NFB-11 as I want to test out the theory that the HE-500's sound better with more power (> 1W). I also have on order some HiFiMAN FocusPads as featured on the HE-560 to replace the velour pads that I am currently using. We'll see!
Hello fellow seekers of audio enlightenment, I wish to join you with a few reviews and to chew the audio gristle awhile!
I'm firmly in the mid-end (?) category in terms of the equipment I own (HE-400, old AKG K240DF/Sextetts and various in-ears up to a PFE232) but have access to some top gear which I'm going to spill my beans over on.
I have some Dita Answer Truth Edition IEMs just now and will post my impression of the Hugo soon, if I can.
Cheers for a great forum!
Hello, I recently got a sound system in birthday present and after that I invested in a B&W p5, and became really happy with them, after that I was lost and wanted to learn more about high quality sound equipment, and ended up here! So hello! (Bought a FiiO e06 and sansa clip+ as well after arriving here)
My name is Andy. I am a DJ and a dabbler in music production and have been a lurker on head-fi for a little bit.
I hope to learn more by being an active member of this community :).
Hope everyone is doing well.

I am a middle school teacher, writer, and artist. And an audiophile!
I've been into audio, more or less, since the bug bit me in 1994. I haven't gotten into headphones, but have a pretty decent system that I'm about to change: A pair of Martin Logan reQuests, anchored by an old Mark Levinson ML-9 amp and using a Schiit SYS passive preamp (I sold my Arcam AVP700 preamp/processor to make room for funds for another preamp or forgo them altogether and just use the SYS in conjunction with a high end DAC I'm saving up for) as an interface between my Technics 1200 turntable (don't laugh) with a Ortofon 2M Blue phono cartridge and a phono preamp, my Roku media player, Samsung Blu Ray player, and Panasonic plasma TV.
The changes? Like I said, I'm saving up for a high end DAC to facilitate the playing of computer files into my sound system. I am also looking to sell the reQuests (which are gorgeous and sound great) with a smaller speaker, as my wife says they dominate our living room. I'm leaning towards Von Schweikerts, new or used, as their replacement (probably the VR-22's or 33's, although the VR-4 or 5 used might fit the bill!). And, I may eventually buy a tube preamp. All this on a teacher's salary! Oh well...
Anyways, it's a pleasure joining your group.
