    Sony MDR MA900 Impressions Thread

    Has anyone removed the padding over the driver yet? I'm curious what purpose it serves. My friend casper said the ma900's sounded a little like his beyers except sounded muffled like there was a sweater over the drivers.

    Best reputation for In ear monitor durability?

    I'm currently looking for an in ear monitor that is durable. I've tried countless IEMS before and either the cord gets ruined or the solder joints fail. At this point I don't really care how they sound, I just need something that won't break on me. I plan to use them @ the gym, biking, hiking...

    Sony releases $160 64 GB SD cards marketed for 'Premium Sound'

      It's a hybrid design with "flux capacitor" technology. When all 5 channels are engaged it makes a vortex of subterranean banana calls that will produce the ultra-low frequencies.

    What is a closed headphone upgrade that is leaps and bounds above the Ath m50x? Lets make a list of the step ups in quality help me out my friends!

      The thing that makes 1540's special is there is isn't any drastic spikes. It's a bass cannon that also has a smooth decline into the higher ranges. Because of this you can listen to them for a while without it fatiguing.    That day I heard over 60 headphones and none of them compared to...

    HiFiMAN Focus Pads durability concerns

    @Airwolf You got lucky with your pads. I used mine 3 times and the plastic mount completely tore off. I took aftermarket pads off to do an a/b comparison with the stock pads. When I put the focus pads back on it completely tore off when I locked it in.  Worse part is the pads were bought late...

    Sony MDR MA900 Impressions Thread

    These are the most comfortable headphones I've ever listened too. I just got a pair and i can't get over how light and awesome they feel.   I wouldn't think they would need an amp but they really do. When I first listened to them they sounded really slow. The bass seem to linger giving the...

    The Takstar, Technical Pro, Gemini Greathon, CyberX, Qpad Thread

      I personally don't like the 880's. I'm a huge fan of the 990's which has a more open design. The open design makes voices shine, although at times a little fatiguing. The 880 sound a little lifeless for me.

    Shure 1540's in my mind are the Beats by Dre done by an audiophile. My amp runs -10 to +10 and I had to turn it to -7 to listen to them. Their comfort and build quality are top notch. Unlike the beats you can hear the other ranges with good clarity. If you are a bass-head that doesn't want the...
