  1. Dekoni Audio Sennheiser HD600 Pad Frequency Analysis

    Ok, here it is. The long-awaited Frequency Comparison charts for the Dekoni Audio HD600 Ear pads. Careful analysis and hours of listening go into our ear pads and we stand by our models as the best of the best as far as replacement ear pads go. I’m going to just jump right into it. I will say, before I continue, that you should always give new pads a few days of listening to get used to them before issuing any judgements for or against. A pad swap is probably the quickest and most...
  2. Sennheiser HD800 Dekoni Audio Ear Pad Frequency Analysis

    Dekoni Audio Sennheiser HD800 Ear Pad Frequency Extravaganza!! So here we are again everyone. It’s time to inspect the Dekoni Audio HD800 Ear Pads and see where they lie in the “spectrum” of things. This is a pad we’ve been working on for a long time and I’m personally proud of the way they sound and the way they feel. The first thing I will say is that the Sennheiser HD800 has a peak at around 5khz that has always bugged me. It seemed out of place and when listening to certain songs...
  3. Multiple iem cable impressions

    Linum Super Bax Connection: 2pin, 3.5mm TRS Source: AK380Cu+AmpCu Iem: Zeus-XRA (XIV set up) Pros: Small size, flexible, performance/value ratio Cons: 2pin connectors look cheap and bended. Only available in 3.5mm TRS, would be better to have memory wire. Sound Stage and Presentation: The stage is just the right size. It’s not too huge nor too small. However, the depth of the stage isn’t on par with TOTL cable. The sound tends to go a bit to slightly warmer than neutral (Zeus is kinda...
  4. The many cables of the ifi iDSD Black

    The many cables of the ifi iDSD Black Having owned this since late April, (thank you so much Pat for the opportunity to use and review this product!)

Therefore I will show you this DAC and the cables used to connect to the following items: Cayin i5, Pioneer XDP-300R, Astell & Kern AK...
  5. Better Audio Quality for Crossfade M-100

    Hear is an audio fix to get cleaner audio for M-100: 55Hz -1 77Hz 1 110Hz 0 156Hz -1 220Hz -2 311Hz 0 440Hz 2 622Hz 3 880Hz 3 1.2kHz 2 1.8kHz 1 2.5kHz 0 3.5kHz 1 5kHz 3 7kHz 4 10kHz 3 14kHz 2 20kHz 1 Frequency file - [URL]https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1h9rzzhe4siSHhfX0NNOGRXTDg/view?usp=sharing[/URL] This works with foobar200 default equalizer. I recommend keeping the volume low and a break every 30-40 minutes so you don't hurt yourself. Please let me know what you think and enjoy.

  7. Superlux HD661 Anti-Sibilance and Comfort Mod

    Introduction: Superlux HD661 is Superlux's cheap clone to the Sony's legendary MDR-7506(Minus the Audio Technica Wing-Type headband). Due to Superlux carelessly aiming for the MDR-7506 frequency response(Since they could also aim for Balanced Frequency response because Sony designed the 7506 with refined mids), you will have to deal with the "Treble Cannon" nature of the HD661. Songs that has a very forward treble will be unbearable with this cans that you might throw them away. People are...
  8. FiiO X3II DAP firmwares with custom themes

    The last regular firmware version of the FiiO X3II digital audio player is 2.0 at FiiO's site. An interesting previous version is 1.4, the last with OTG support (adding storage on the USB port, which is not officially supported but works for most).   FiiO allows the firmwares to be customised with alternative images and graphical properties (colours, font sizes...). FiiO shares instructions on how to customise a firmware, how to install a firmware, and its own large text font firmware....
  9. Flawless Album Suggestions

    Well, I think it is safe to say anyone reading this article is an Audiophile, Audiophile wannabe or somewhere between the two. I also think that the threads on this website are a great resource for any grade of audiophile to mine for new and excellent music to discover. One of the threads I found to be interesting and very helpful is the Flawless Album Suggestion thread. What is a "Flawless Album"? Well here is the definition as laid out in post 1 of the thread "The criteria is simple:...
  10. The Audiophile Scene in a Third World Country - FUN READ

    This will be a cathartic experience on my part since I haven’t written for a while after leaving The Huffington Post.   A little background, I live in NYC but was brought up in Bangladesh (used as a representative third world country among many others). Those who have not heard of the place – open up a world map (do they still have those – or has Google Maps killed it already?) – and look to the right side of India. I sort of proudly say to all that I am Bangladeshi even though...
