    Sennheiser HD800 vs. Beyerdynamic T1 2nd gen vs. Klipsch Heritage HP-3

    If I can catch a great deal I may get it. The HDVA600 is specicifically designed for the HD800 by Sennheiser. If it only bring 70% of HD800 capability, I am not that sure about it. I am sure there are better amplifier but they might be more expensive. The HDVA600 has 4 outputs and is very...

    Sennheiser HD800 vs. Beyerdynamic T1 2nd gen vs. Klipsch Heritage HP-3

    Thank you Gambitek. I had read similar reviews. I am very satisfied with the HD800 and am just have the thought of "I want the Klipsch and T1 2nd" also. I guess I have contain my urge to get another headphone and spend the money on the lens for this time being..

    4 pin XLR male to 3 pin XLR male (or 1/4" TRS male) splitter

    Something similar, what I was looking for has the opposite male-female connector to the one at eBay. But right now I do not need it because I bought a new integrated amplifier NAD D 3020 and no longer need to use HDVA 600 to a powered amplifier. If I happens to see the right one I may try it and...

    Full size close-back inexpensive headphone driven by smart phone and PC

    Received ATH-M50X, sound is good. It does not feel comfortable to wear but tolerable. Ear piece is small. It's probably I got used to bigger ear pieces like HD800.

    4 pin XLR male to 3 pin XLR male (or 1/4" TRS male) splitter

    I searched on web and cannot find any such cable. I need it to connect the 4 pin XLR to the headphone output on HDVA 600 so I can put the two 3 pin XLR (or the 1/4" TRS male) to the input of a powered amplifier for bookshelf speakers. Btw, from DAC Audio GD-19 to the HDVA 600 I am using...

    Can I use DAC-19 from Audio-GA and HDVA 600 to power bookshelf speakers?

    Thank you Dulalala and ProtegeManiac, I think I will buy a new integrated amp or a powered amp. I love my current headphone rig very much and will keep it. Luckily, some decent amp to drive the bookshelf speakers aren't so expensive as those that drive the headphone.

    Sennheiser RS220 advice needed – possible problem?

    Something is wrong with your headphone, or the base or the transmission between them. I have HD650 and RS220. The sound quality of the RS 220 is so close to HD650 that I could not tell the difference. My Only problem with the RS220 is that if I walked to a different room that there are two...

    Can I use DAC-19 from Audio-GA and HDVA 600 to power bookshelf speakers?

    I am using DAC-19 from Audio-GA and HDVA 600 to power Sennheiser HD800 and the set is pretty good. But Sometimes I don't like headphone hooked on head. I want to get the Klipsch RP-160M bookshelf speakers. Can I use the same DAC-19 from Audio-GA and HDVA 600 to power the Klipsch RP-160M...

    Reply to review by 'hiaudio' on item 'FiiO X7'

    Nice. Thank you very much. It's very helpful. I planned to get this one. All I need a DAP does for me is to output Digital signal with high quality to dedicated DAC to Amp to headphone. X7 is still only list but I am open to alternative for my current needs. Maybe the 2nd generation of X7 or X9...

    FiiO X7 preview world tour--tour impressions rolling in

    In that case I may want to look for a cheaper digital music player with digital output. My main use of it is to output digital signal (lossless play) to DAC-19 (only take in USB, Optical and Coaxial) to amp to headphone, I will not carry the digital player around. So X7's built in DAC and amp is...

    FiiO X7 preview world tour--tour impressions rolling in

    The Coaxial is the only digital output from the X7 (and many other DMPs). Is there better way to take out digital signal from X7 other than using the Coaxial? No?

    FiiO X7 preview world tour--tour impressions rolling in

      OK, with the two setup and how the comparison is for the sound quality   play music from PC or Mac --> DAC -> Amp -> headphone     play music from FiiO X7 --> DAC -> Amp -> headphone

    The Sennheiser Orpheus 2? A First Look At The Sennheiser HE-1 (The New Orpheus)

    I had read that a few members had mentioned investment. I don't know who, if any, really had the thought of investment on a headphone. I bet it's just some casual talks here. For me, if in a day that I could afford it my only purpose would be enjoying music with it.
