        Thanks, guys. I appreciate it!   I may call Signal Cable also. They did some replacement cables for my HD650's that were stellar.   Thanks again

      Hi   Even though my H9s arrived DOA, I did try them in my headphone cases. This one below fits perfectly:   DO NOT get the GoCase!!!!! I did - and so did lots of others - and we...

    B&O H9 Discussion and Impressions thread

    My H9s arrived today - DOA. Not happy about this. When you push the slider switch up, nothing happens. No lights at all. I ran all the usual troubleshooting steps.... - Did a battery pull, and re-inserted it - Checked the battery by plugging in a USB adapter - full green light. - Tried the...

      That was me, and your comments were very helpful.   The studio production is for a talk radio show, so I'm mostly listening to voices. They use killer mics - U87s - and with the Senns, when I recorded tracks my voice was like velvet. Lots of depth and baritone colors. Loved 'em. I'm trying...

    I've never tried a hybrid tube amp. Lots of solid state amps, but never a hybrid.   Anyone here have a favorite they they're using with the 400i?   One thing I hope an amp like that will bring out, is bass the way the artist intended it. I don't want the headphones to introduce bass on their...

          Thanks, drwlf & DavidA   As for bulletproof headphones, I do have a pair of Beyerdynamic DT48e, which are built like a tank. Trouble is, they sound awful with the board and amps we use at the studio....very muddy.   I'll keep you all posted. Thanks again.

    Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H8 (Wireless Noise Cancelling On-Ear Headphones)

      Just for the sake of experimentation, I've ordered a Plugable Bluetooth 4.0 USB adapter. Perhaps the B&O and the Dell just don't play together well.    We'll see!

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

    Hi,   I have the Momentum 2 Wireless, and I love the sound. With my 4K Samsung TV, they sound great. With my Nexus 6 phone, great. But with my Leckerton UHA-6S,MKII? They are amazing - as good as just about every pair of $1000 headphones I have ever used. Absolutely stunning sound quality.  ...

    Sony 9.1ch Digital Surround Headphone System MDR-HW700DS

    Talk about late to the party!   I listen to just about everything via headphones. So, I just ordered these, to use with the new Samsung 4K Blu-Ray player, which has two HDMI for video, and one for audio only. I figured I'd put the audio only cable in the back of the transmitter...

    Question for the Experts

    Hi... I have a question for the experts here.   I am watching Blu-Ray movies with an Oppo BDP-93.   Tonight I'm running the audio from its Coax output into the coax input of an Audio gd Compass, and listening with new HD650s.   My question is: am I guilty of overkill?   The Oppo is a...

    New Leckerton UHA-6S MKII Portable Headphone Amplifier Announced (Update User Impressions Added July 20th 2012)

    My Leckerton Audio UHA-6S.MKII arrived today - and I am absolutely astounded.   First? The build quality is top-drawer. This is a beautiful piece of gear. Gorgeous. I bought the silver edition, and I find it to have a really tank-like build, as well as a nice solid feel to the volume knob, and...
