    The Qudelix-5K thread

    Meh, it’s good marketing to set aside 5+ units to generate PR. It’s basically an investment to drive future sales.

    ORA GrapheneQ - The world's first Graphene driver headphone

    That’s normal for most companies. The bigger players who are active on this forum will engage users and ask them to email their support team. I recommend that you do so instead of waiting on your post to be answered. I think that you probably received bad advice here, while it was good intention.

    The Bose NC 700 Noise Cancelling Headphones

    Yeah I’m sure going to be watching the Apple one. They hired a top notch audio team. The story and design of HomePod is something else. If anyone is going to pull off a leap forward with ANC, this would probably be the team.

    The Bose NC 700 Noise Cancelling Headphones

    Couldn’t agree more. After being in the community for a while and doing my typical heavy research that I do for all things, I’ve come to realize that I just really appreciate Bose products for their working approach to making useful headphones. When I consider my tastes and all the various use...

    So you prefer the Mobius. That’s ok!

    The Bose NC 700 Noise Cancelling Headphones

    Ehh, I don’t think a well calculated filter necessarily does anything other than adjust the frequency response. Whether or not the driver will be able to keep distortion low or break up depends entirely on it’s intrinsic acoustics structural performance. But yeah, I also prefer the Bose to the...

    URBANFUN YBF-ISS014 Impressions thread

    You know what, these do have a “wow” factor but I think it may be the “chifi V” that Cron describes. They are fairly bright/harsh up top and quickly aggregate my tinnitus in a way that Harman-esque tuning rarely does with my Audeze and Bose products. These are cool for $60 but I’m not sure if...

    The Bose NC 700 Noise Cancelling Headphones

    I think you're really missing the point here. I specifically said that DSP works well in Audeze because of their low distortion. They certainly don't have a monopoly on that characteristic. Bose is not an Audiophile product, I agree. But you are severely underestimating their talent level. They...

    The Bose NC 700 Noise Cancelling Headphones

    You quite literally contradicted yourself in this post. The reason Audeze cans take DSP so well is due to the vanishingly low distortion inherent in the design. It’s not the only way to achieve low distortion. ORA has it. I am quite sure Bose is one of the few who make their own custom drivers...

    The Bose NC 700 Noise Cancelling Headphones

    After the update, they’re doing the QC35 bass thing much better. You can turn it up and get slam going. They also turn into a massive bass sound when you crank the bass and turn the anc off .

    The ORA does not roll off even a millimeter

    My cans definitely sound better after the update in general. They now have a bit more “punch” when flat, which is great.

    URBANFUN YBF-ISS014 Impressions thread

    Ok mine arrived from Linsoul after 2 months as well today. I’m honestly blown away with these things for $60. I lived with the AKG-N5005 because I generally like Harman but the Bass was kinda weak for me and the filters didn’t quite do it for me. So I got the KXXS and similarly wasn’t super...

    DROP + THX Panda Announcement

    Interesting point. So far, the pass through has been enabled by multiple mics. I guess it may be technically feasible to explore this with a single mic. I’m very much watching for any/all DSP announcements on this product. Personally, I’m hoping for a parametric EQ and loudness curves.
