    SubPac for Sub Referencing

    Hey all!  Ran into this yesterday and was wondering if it might proof useful in terms of referencing/level mixing sub bass into DAW based music?  I live in a 800 square foot apartment in Downtown Denver; cranking up my sub woofer isn't the best decision in sake of maintaining my residency.  I...

    JBL LSR305, any good?

    I currently own a pair of KRK Rokit 8's and I've come to realize I'm really not too impressed with KRK; I find that my mixes come out WAY too bright and digital sounding. Believe it or not, but I've actually been getting some cleaner mixes with my Logitech speakers and that's a bit concerning...

    IEM's around $100

    I'm currently in the market for a pair of portable IEM's that I can grab for around $100.  I listen to anything from Liquid DnB, Future Garage, and Hip Hop, to Indie, Jazz, and Classical.  Bass is certainly a priority to me, but I also don't want to sacrifice a wide soundstage just to get that...

    Sennheiser vs. AKG

    Quote: I mainly scared of low end muddiness from roll off.  I don't want to hear my speakers crackle as a grenade blows up.

    Sennheiser vs. AKG

    Quote: Wow...  This is an incredibly tough decision.  Those AD900's seem like they sound incredible, I'm just worried about the low end.  I did mention that bass isn't too much of a concern for me, but I'm also a little worried that these headphones don't have enough.  I really wish I could...

    Sennheiser vs. AKG

    Also, what is your guy's stance on headphone amplifiers vs audio interfaces?  Lets say I were to buy something like this http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/KompAudio6/, then would a headphone amp even be necessary?

    Sennheiser vs. AKG

    Quote: I'll take your word for it, but I'm a little worried about gaming with these since they are closed back.  Now correct me if I'm wrong, but I was told that open air headphones tend to create a wider sound stage.

    Sennheiser vs. AKG

    Quote: Sorry, I should have clarified that a bit better.  I don't need anything with alot of bass, just something that is going to give me a really flat and accurate response, also something with an extremely wide sound stage for gaming.  I pulled up a frequency response chart for the...

    Sennheiser vs. AKG

    I currently own a pair of Sony MDR XB-700s and I love them, but I want to invest into another pair of cans that are going to give me a much clearer response.  My budget is around 300 for headphones and I want a pair for gaming, studio reference, music and movies.  I've been looking into AKG...

    SONY MDR XB700 vs Beats Pro vs Pioneer hdj 2000

    Quote: Very!  I have stepped, dropped and sat on mine for 2 years now.  Really surprised they have held up.

    SONY MDR XB700 vs Beats Pro vs Pioneer hdj 2000

    Quote: I beg to differ.  Look at those frequencies on the charts i posted, the MDR is pretty on par with the Pioneers aside from the boost on the bass.  Plus you have to consider that this guy is posting headphones generally used in the world of Electronic Dance Music, chances are he is...

    What happened to Sony MDR XB-1000?

    Does anyone know what happened to Sony's MDR XB-1000s?  I remember seeing these at the Sony store and they sounded incredible, at a bass heads perspective that is.  These headphones were VERY short lived, I now notice they are discontinued.  Do you guys think the price scared away the market...

    SONY MDR XB700 vs Beats Pro vs Pioneer hdj 2000

    It really depends what you are using these headphones for.  To start, we can completely elminate Beats because these headphones aren't within the same ranking as the other two pair of cans.  I own a pair of Sony MDR XB-700s and I have never heard a set of headphones with more bass, besides the...

    Headphones vs. Room Treatment (Sound Reference and Production)

    Quote: Yea, I'm not a big fan of the Rokit series.  I'm looking into Yamaha HS80's which are running for 250 a pair now.  Thoughts on that? What's the best way to calculate where I should place the reflection points if I were to set my monitors at a 45 degree angle?
