    Were you referring to me? Haha. Sorry I'm confused.

    The best sounding over-ear portable headphones under 500$?

    My rig is iPhone 6 Plus -> Apple CCK -> FiiO E07K Andes -> FiiO Oyaide Copper cable -> H6. The E07k amps up the bass nicely which the H6 is quite lacking. Never looked back ever since. I think I've found the best sound signature ever. At least that's what my ears think. ;) Added: And the FiiO...

    Reply to review by 'alleggerita' on item 'Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H6'

    Absolutely agreed here. Details (especially in the highs and miss) are tremendous. When I first listened to it I thought it sounded fantastic but left me a bit cold at the same time. But I desperately wanted a replacement for my ageing ATH-ESW9. But I wasn't prepared to pay USD300-400 for it. I...

    Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H6 Discussion Thread

    It's never been moist or wet whenever I put it into the bag. Pretty bad customer service too. The receptionist was trying to convince me it's wear and tear and it will happen when the leather patinates. So I was trying to tell her it's black marks on the leather, it ain't patina. Haha. Should...

    Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H6 Discussion Thread

    I really do believe it does improve with burn in I too bought the H6 purely for the clarity and details it gave me. But on first hearing it was quite shrill and tiring on my ears But after just 10 hours of looping my playlist, things got better. Bass is slightly more prominent and trebles are...

    Fiio E07k connection with iPhone 5

    So is it a problem with the E17? Read a lot of people failed with this set up even with USB Charging turned off. And with this USB adapter that you suggested, doesn't it mean I can't bend the cables and carry my iphone and E07k as one piece? Haha.

    ios7, iPhone and Apple CCK

    Sorry just a question. Will this work: iPhone 5 (iOS 7.1.1) -> Apple Lightning to USB CCK -> USB to Mini USB cable -> FiiO E07k Andes (USB Charging off) -> Headphones Will this work or there MUST be a powered hub in the middle? Or will it not work at all?

    Fiio E07k connection with iPhone 5

    Sorry if this question has been asked a million times. But I just wanna confirm it beyond all doubt before I plunge in and buy a E07k. iPhone 5 -> Apple Lightning to USB Adapter CCK -> USB to Mini USB Cable -> FiiO E07k Andes (USB Charging off) -> headphones. Or will it not work?

    Audio-Technica ATH-ESW9 and ATH-ESW9A Thread

    I do notice a difference on my 2yo ESW9 after amping. Even with a cheap FiiO E6 amp. But I see a lot of people saying it's better with recabling? Especially with silver coated copper wire or pure silver cables. Anybody with ESW9 here recabled it? Care to share your experience? Very tempted to...

    Audio-Technica ATH-ESW9 and ATH-ESW9A Thread

    Been going around and auditioning some of the other supra-aural headphones similar in size and price to my ESW9s like the Beats by Dr. Dre series and even some of Pioneer's studio headphones, I still can't find one with a similar sound signature like the ESW9. They are either too bassy with lots...

    Headphone Buyer's Guide

    is the price for the ath-esw9 accurate? where to find a pair of esw9 for $280? I got mine for $350. And i think esw9 should be a "2-amp recommended".
