    Burson Soloist SL MK2 Appreciation/Impressions Thread

    If I remember correctly, the sound is normal. I had questioned burson about this and was told that this is normal with their amps operating in class A. If anybody knows different correct me.

    Looking at multiple amps and dacs, and still quite unsure.

    I dont own the TRX00, so cant say for that specific headphone. I do own the Nighthawk which uses similar driver technology, and a similar impedence and both my amps drove it well. I have the Burson Soloist SL and the Massdrop Cavalli Tube Hybrid (CTH). I prefer the sound of the CTH by a pinch...

    Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee Review & Measurements

    Got mine on saturday. Have them playing music and listening periodically every now and then. Other than the HD497, this is the only Senn headphone that I own. It did surprise me with the bass. I didnt expect the extension or the quantity to be honest, and while not having the quantity of the...

    Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee Review & Measurements

    Well u could argue that the 58X cant be bought new from any other retailer and the price seems to be really low already. I am also guessing that if you could get it now from massdrop, then that means that they have been produced and now have extra stock available.

    Massdrop x Alex Cavalli Tube Hybrid Amp (CTH) - Dropping Monday

    Just received this little fellow. I am burning it in, but I am not at my main setup, so its running straight from the laptop headphone out for the time being. So far, I am enjoying it. Cant compare to the Burson yet as I am not next to it. It is powerful and my cans are pretty efficient, so not...

    Headphone system for a newcomer

    Hello, I am not anywhere near to the summit-fi headphones that you are talking about. But for me, if you intend to spend that much, then I would suggest find somewhere that you can demo and do just that. if its possible with music you know. That's a lot of money to plunk down there and spending...

    Sennheiser HD4.50BTNC

    Hello my fellow forum members. I have been looking for a blue-tooth headphone for a while and this one has caught my attention. The usual caveats for me. I cant try anything unless i know someone who owns them.... which i dont. I have heard the P7 wireless and while I found it sounded good. I...

    Just feel bad for not able to tell the difference

    to be straight forward with you, from my point of view, the differences between equipment such as dacs and amps are not huge noticeable differences. I will be honest and say I was hard pressed to hear the difference between the on board of my mac mini and the modi 2 uber and Burson Soloist SL...

    Anybody figured out the new site yet?

    I just plain dont like the new layout. Its cumbersome and not user friendly. When logging in it seems i have to log in twice.... Its harder to find things.... Its just not conducive to my normal sit and scroll through and research. It was soo easy before. Now its a PITA

    Corrupt a wish

      Wish Granted, But global warming melts the solar icecaps and your cycling trail and house are all under water forcing you to live on a 20 ft boat with no room to ride your bike. I wish I was wealthy enough to buy Hawaii from the US Government
