    ASUS Xonar Essence STX II

    I started having "screeching" problem with my STX II all of a sudden so I started researching ways to solve it. I came across new "official" drivers from ASUS and decided to try them out. I put "official" in quotes because they're still not signed - you still need to put your system into driver...

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless

    IMO other people may disagree, but I think earpad swap for something that seals better is a must. The swap is very easy, no modding experience necessary, the earpad pieces are being held in place by pure friction, you will probably need something plastic to pry them off, but they come off pretty...

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless - New ear pads to improve bass?

    It's not just an improvement. The aftermarket pads is what made the difference between keeping these headphones and sending them back. That's how awful the stock pads are. As I said, I cannot believe folks at Beyerdynamics listened to stock pads in user testing and thought yeah, that sounds good.

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless

    I get that. I think it's reasonable to expect a few stumbles when creating brand new product line of wireless headphones. However, I think it is unacceptable that Beyerdynamic decided to not provide firmware fix for Amiron Wireless power button issue. I believe they provided firmware update for...

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless

    That's a real shame. Their MIY app is super buggy as well, which shows how much Beyerdynamic cares (apparently very little), but at least I don't have to use the app on a daily basis. With the headphones, switching on and off is a basic function, it's astonishing they couldn't get such a basic...

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless

    Late reply, yes, you can, but it's really awkward because of the USB port positioning. It's positioned on the right cup facing back, I kid you not. Take a look at the photos in this review to see what I mean. I like how these headphones sound, but I'm really baffled by pretty much everything...

    SOLD: Audeze Mobius

    For sale practically brand new Audeze Mobius. These are from the August 23rd shipment. I got them late last week and have been testing them over the past few days. Overall I really like the way they sound, and turns out not being bound by a wire is actually very nice. I bought these...

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    5xx from US, got my shipping email this morning. I did chuckle when I realized that SFC stood for "Send From China". Hope it gets here soon, it's been long and very stressful couple of months.

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    ANC white noise is not due to the circuitry. It's due to microphones doing their work and picking up outside sounds that need to be cancelled out. The cancellation is never going to be perfect, hence the white noise when ANC is active. As many pointed out if you turn off ANC (thereby turning off...

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    Yeah, I remember reading that, and the quote clearly stated Audeze was looking into the problem. My understanding was that Audeze would fix it. Unfortunately, based on the early owner feedback the hiss is still present.

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    No need to be afraid. I know what I'm getting. I'm getting closed planars with integrated microphone and bluetooth wireless. That's exactly what I want. I know these won't sound like your hypothetical $20K rig, but so long as these are in the same ballpark as my modest $600 Asus Xonar STX II +...

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    Pretty sure you won't be able to return these since we technically crowdfunded the campaign. Audeze might be able to cancel and refund your order if you contact them directly and ask them nicely before these are shipped out. Once they're shipped out and you receive delivery you're stuck with...

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    @KMann Thank you for the update. As anxious as I am about receiving my pair, the audible hissing is concerning, and I would gladly accept another shipping delay if it meant fixing the hissing issue.

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    An update from Audeze is definitely in order.
