  4. 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...

  8. 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...

  11. 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...

    Chicolom's FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions Why are Gaming Headsets often said to be inferior to regular headphones? In general, headphones (especially "audiophile" or "hi-fi" headphones) tend to have better sound quality than your typical gaming headsets. This is due to a number of reasons, such as: a design more focused on maximizing sound quality instead of maximizing stylish "gaming" looks, an Open Vs. Closed design (most gaming headsets are closed), and simply having more experience...

    NO UNSOLICITED PRIVATE MESSAGES ASKING ABOUT GAMING HEADPHONES. PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS ON THE THREAD. This quick guide is for Headphone gaming WITH virtual surround. NOT stereo, so those looking at this guide as a headphone guide for stereo gaming will need to note that my reviews aren't based on stereo gaming. I play most games with virtual surround DSPs like Dolby Headphone and THX Tru Studio, so I CAN'T make suggestions to those who wanna play in plain stereo, as I find most headphones to...
