  2. 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...

  6. 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.

  7. 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...

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.
