    Help! Schitty CLIPPING from the Modi, or.....?

    My problem has been 95% solved, and it's sort of embarassing as to how:  I simply had utorrent running in the background uploading 1.1MB per second.  I've listened to three 320 mp3s on Foobar thus far and only had ONE skip/jitter and I am using the comp the whole time, not just sitting here.  So...

    Help! Schitty CLIPPING from the Modi, or.....?

    @hypersonic - Thanks for that post, you've brought a couple things to my attention.  I'm gonna have to retest my Modi with another system.  I satisfy most of your points, brand new laptop, etc.  Modi does not have it's own powersource, but who cares??  It should work!  heh.  I'm a bit irritated...

    Shure 1540 headphone PRICE DROP

    How would you describe the bass impact?  Would you consider trade for like-new HD650?  (Not official offer, looking into 1540)

    DarkVoice 336e vs. Little Bear P8 - Near identical Chinese amps?

    Edited   Quote:   I have heard the 650 rattle in its frame at my friends house when plugged into a home receiver.  It had awesome bass suitable for club music.  I just got the Magni 2 Uber and it does NOT have the bass I wanted. Something I don't fully understand, though is that the...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    NooB here who just got the HD650's and knows nothing about amps.  Feel pretty lost.  A few questions/comments:   Given:  I desire fun, warm, dynamic sound.  That's why I got HD650 to begin with.  I loved my M-audio Q40's, for $100 range headphones.  I am upgrading from a Behringer HA400 amp...

    M-Audio Q40 Impressions (long w/pics)

    Cool, man.  Thanks for the post.  I posted about this in another thread and someone told me it was very easy to swap the pads and that they "pull over" - guess I'll find out b/c I got some silver pads on the way.  Hope they don't look silly, but the black pads are out of stock everywhere right...

    I tried the Beats By Dre...And I liked them!

    The beats are total crap. Only fools like them. I've not heard them.

    Melodic Death Metal and Trance Headphones

    Grado SR60 are a TERRIBLE choice for Trance. Very weak bass response. Also uncomfortable as fukc.
