    Ultimate Ears UE 900 Discussion and Impressions Thread

    HELP! When trying to separate the ear piece and the cord the whole shell BROKE and the wire connecting the drivers and the connection SPLIT.    What do I do? Is this fixable under the warranty?

    Upgrade to the Shure SE215s

    So I lost my SE215s in a taxi cab and I bought the Brainwavz R1 as a replacement. They are kinda nice, but the bass is just way too overpowering and it's not clear enough, especially in the mids. So I need a suggestion for an upgrade to the SE215 - bonus points if it's a dual driver and on sale...

    FiiO Mont Blanc/E12 portable headphone amp, 880mW, slim design, full metal case. Bass boost and Cross feed!

    I've seen several E12s go for as low as 100 in the Selling forums. I sold mine for 105.

    It's Revision 2, which isn't the defective version. I tried to like it, but it was clear the pairing didn't work when I liked the sound better both straight out of the DAC and then even straight out of my laptop.

    I didn't share that positive experience. The E12 made my HE-400s sound brighter than they already are (to the point of fatigue) and didn't do much to improve the sound quality beyond increasing the volume. I eventually sold it in order to pursue a desktop amplifier.

    **Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    Whoa hold on I never said the D2000s were better. But they manage to sound more refined than the HE-400s, that I can say.    Also I have previewed the LCD-2, albeit not for an extended period of time. I can't really speak much about the musicality of it, but the treble rolloff is a welcome...

    **Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    You guys certainly do sound like HE-400 apologists, especially when claims that the HE-400 is as good as the LCD-2 are thrown around.    I'm convinced the HE-400 is a good, but flawed headphone. Vocals disappear behind the drums, hi-hats, and instruments when they clearly shouldn't...

    ++ FULL-SIZE HEADPHONE RECOMMENDATIONS THREAD++ CLOSED: Please post a thread in the Introductions, Help and Advice forum

    I have HE-400s. I hate the treble, and EQ only fixes it so much. Where do you suggest I go?

    So what should constitute most of the volume? The gain? My laptop volume? Or the amp volume? Which one should I use the most?

    **Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    I will second this post ^^. I had a Fiio E17 and I just got the Fiio E12. 3-4x more power, and somewhat close the Magni. I can barely tell a difference. Any difference is marginal honestly. Only thing that really changed was the volume. The HE-400 is still the HE-400.   So the best sound...

    **Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    So for the past week I was running the HE-400s out of a DAC only (no amp). Today I got my Fiio E12 which puts 850 mW at 32 ohms. I'm not noticing all that much change in the quality of the sound, but I am increasingly noticing the treble. The treble adds a lot of sibilance and sharpness to...

    What did you want when you first got into this hobby? And what do you have now?

    I wanted bass, lots of bass. Now I want almost no bass, I want clarity, fullness, richness, and transparency.
