    iFi audio iDSD Signature - The saga continues!

    Is this the general consensus for all audio setups? Am I going to have to get an upgraded power cable for my PSU? I was under the impression that having a clean usb connection and a transparent DAC/Amp mattered more...

    AirPods Max

    :purse::purse::purse: Yeah, Dolce & Gabbana, LV, and Gucci have some real competition! It’s only a matter of time before the APM comes with $300 case options. Oh and the handle will be a separate $200 purchase, which will require a $50 dongle to connect to a not-included power brick.

    AirPods Max

    Real disappointed on the price point. Apple still using the outdated lightning port and it doesn’t even have any next-gen features like LC3! Also, the name is pretty ridiculous... Like they couldn’t have come up with something better than Airpods Max? Next up: the Airpods SE, Airpods Mini and...

    DROP + THX Panda Announcement

    Bluetooth headphone-headset combos are always going to have crappy audio/glitches and issues when set to headset mode. idk why this is but headset audio and media audio are treated differently with the latter having the superior sonics, but the former has the benefit of being able to use a mic...

    A headphone tribute goodbye to Tyll from Innerfidelity

    Last I checked, IF became a shill blog for headphone manufacturers. Gone were the in-depth teardown and reviews... I miss the reviewer who would nerd out over the guts of a headphone and give a thorough analysis of the sound, but still be able to recommend “fun-sounding” headphones. If anyone...

    Challenge: The $300 endgame headphones

    Sivga Phoenix ($255) with the BW round pleather pads ($14). Total = $269. I picked this combo because for less than $300 and w/o a dedicated amp/dac (compare that to the other entries here) you can get a great sounding, bassy, v-shaped, stupidly efficient headphone that’s also comfortable to...

    The Beyerdynamic DT880 Discussion thread

    Seems about right... On Normal, I sometimes have to take my 37 ohm Sundaras to the 2 o’clock position depending on the music, but they also have a lower sensitivity than the Beyers so it evens out... All the 600 ohm Beyer DTs should power the same so I believe the BL should be more than enough...

    The Beyerdynamic DT880 Discussion thread

    I skimmed both product pages and I didn’t see any mention of balanced outputs.

    The Beyerdynamic DT880 Discussion thread

    Mmm... can’t say... My Micro iDSD BL, which tops out at 166mW 600ohms (another headfi member calculated theirs to 157mW) can take the DT990s to loud volumes upto the 1’oclock position without distorting (this also depends on the recording as I usually listen to loud Bassy music). This is plenty...
