Hi guys, I'm Aashrey, long time lurker and very recently the owner of a brand new ATH M50x which I selected because of all the good things I read about it them here. I would like to thank the community very much and wish everyone a merry christmas! I'll still probably be a silent reader until I feel I can contribute back to the community, but it's feels great to finally have a post up! smily_headphones1.gif
Welcome to head-fi, my first headphones were the ATH-50x and I still think there a lot of fun to listen too. Although I mostly use them with my portable rig. Are you using a amp with your ATH-50x's? I use a Fiio E12 to run them with my portable rig and wow, my cans sing. Hope your new cans put a smile on your face.

Hello! I've been lurking this forums since last year, looking for recommendations and opinions on heaphones that I could find here in argentina.

 

I used to own some Sennheiser HD-488s (although I suspect that they may have been fakes), but i got mugged and thus was left with some el cheapo headphones that i fixed, that once belonged to a friend of mine.

 

I'm interested right now in 3 headphones, a used JVC HA RX-700, a Superlux HD 681 (the one with red rings), and some Philips A1PRO,the budget model from the Van Buuren series. Right now, I´m leaning towards the Philips, but they seem to lack popularity, and I've only found some amazon reviews on them, thus i would love to hear what you Head-Fiers have to say.

 

I thank you for your time, and for hosting such a great community!

Hello Everyone,

 

I'm new to this site and to the concept of being an audiophile.  I was called that this morning at work by one of my superiors who said that I definitely have the makings of becoming one.  I joined this site because I delved deeper into the concepts of audio and I realized that I was out of my league.  Sure I had my share of headphones, my most serious pair (don't laugh) were Sony MDR-XD200 for just plain audio and I also have a pair of Logitech g930's I use with my PC.  Okay fine laugh. :p

 

Anyway, what got me kick started was my longing to discover something new and entertaining as my love for the silver screen or the tube was hitting it's, shall we say, swan song.  I've become fed up with it. Having a BA in Film and realizing years later that movies and tv are just the same thing over and over again.  Sure there are a few exceptions and I will still take time out for those but in the meantime it's time for something new.

 

So here I am.  My next post will bring more light into my plight. For the time being consider me essentially a total newbie.  

 

Thanks for reading.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

Well I'm a college student and I kinda blew all I money on these cans. XD

I'm planning to purchase a fiio e6 once I save some. Do you think I should get the e6 or just wait till I can get an e12 directly? I don't mind the wait. smily_headphones1.gif

I would go for the Fiio E12, it's a better unit. This hobby does drain the wallet, but to me it's worth it.

Hello All,

 

  I've been lurking for awhile and decided to join. My name is Eric and as far as cans go I have a pair of Grado SR80e to start out. I'll probably end up getting a Schiit Asgard 2 or Lyr 2 eventually as well as a dedicated phono preamp for my turntable (using an old Sony integrated amp right now for everything). I mostly listen to Metal and Hard Rock, but am expanding my horizons a little. I like physical media the most such as CDs and Vinyl. I'm also a guitar player and into tube amps. I like this site since there is a wealth of information and the people seem cool. I can tell that this hobby will be addictive as I'm already contemplating future add-ons and upgrades. Any and all equipment upgrade recommendations welcome.

Hello,

 

I am interested in buying an athW3000. That' it.

 

Have a nice holiday!

Hey everyone. I guess you could say I'm not totally new to the site; I did some looking around a few years back when I first discovered my interest in audio. Sadly I neglected to foster the growth of my hobby, and it died out for a while. But now I'm ready to jump back in! In the past I've owned the Sony MDR-XB500 and AKG k550. They both broke on me despite the best of intentions to take proper care of them, and for the past year or so I've just been using the Steelseries In-ear Flux for gaming and music. Oh yeah, and I also have a Fiio E11 amp. For my re-inaugural pair of full-size cans, I'm going to pick up the Audio Technica ATH-M50X sometime after Christmas. (Hopefully there will be a price drop.) 

post #956 of 5297

Hello everybody. I have been lurking in this site since perhaps 2006, never actually joining for any reason, since I didn't think I have something to contribute.

 

Around 2011, I ran into a huge financial problem, and sold the majority of my audio collection, totally nearly 15 grand. I also sold a camera collection, as well as my professional camera kit (which I used for photoshoots and as an assist in wedding photography), all for 25 grand.

 

Anyway, since around three months ago, my financial situation has improved and I have begun approaching this hobby more clinically and carefully.

 

Currently, I own HD800 (just purchased again), Momentum over-ear, Amperior, Shure SE535 and SE215 and RHA MA750, all of which were acquired during 2014, and a series of other under 100 dollars headphones and earphones I never sold or was gifted to me.

 

Due to being very financially troubled in 2011-2013, I did a lot of DIY audio and DIY headphone making, some of which resulted in pretty good sounding headphones and amps.

 

As for interface, I have the Asus Maximus VII Formula on-board sound card, as well as Audioengine D1 and D3 DAC/Amp.

 

I will use your knowledge to expand my ownership of quality headphones, earphones and DACs and Amplifiers, as I do not want to end up with a huge collection I never listen to.

 

Thank you for reading :)

Hey Everyone,

 

I've been lurking around here for a few weeks and finally decided to sign up recently. I don't know if I'd call myself an audiophile, I don't really have any high end equipment (yet) but I'm setting aside some money this Christmas to pick up my first entry-level headphones (either Momentum On-Ears or Crossfade M80s, haven't made up my mind yet). I'm a college student, 22 and just starting to take my music seriously. I look forward to learning more and just being around everyone on the forums.

 

-JD

Alright, E12 it is! I was also looking DAC recommendations. Also as I understand a DAC is a digital to analog converter and is not the same as an AMP. An amp is simply used to boost the analog signal, right?

Yes you are correct. I hope your new rig puts a smile on your face.
