    V-Moda Crossfade Wireless versus V-Moda M-100 - sound quality difference?

    I know this is an old thread but I couldn't find a dedicated Crossfade Wireless thread.   I've had these headphones for about 2 months and I'm really impressed.   I had the v-moda LP2 previously and ended up selling them to a friend because they were too uncomfortable. I wear glasses and...

    Awesome or Gimmick ? Sonys MDR-1ADAC

    I just got my pair yesterday. I paid $399 from JB Hi-Fi in Australia. They were on sale, down from 499 which is their standard price. https://www.jbhifi.com.au/headphones-dj/headphones/sony/sony-mdr1adac-hi-res-headphones-with-us-dac-black/646636/   Previously to getting these I was using the...

    PSB M4U 2

    Thanks gav007 and jess70. I have ordered 2 cables for the nad Viso hp50 from eBay. I tried contacting PSB about the battery compartment cover, but they just told me to contact a store here in Australia, and I did but they never got back to me. I'm thinking about getting some full size...

    PSB M4U 2

    I'm starting to hate these headphones and this company because no replacement parts are available. First I lose the battery compartment cover, that was over a year ago and I've never been able to locate a replacement. Now I have accidentally wrapped the cord around a door handle and snapped...

    Help me decide!! HipHop/RAP BASS LOVER!!

    Try the JB Hi-Fi store in Pitt St Mall - i have been in there before and they have a full headphone listening section. The Sydney Westfield store might also have one, but I haven't been in there.   In regards to where to purchase from, I live in Adelaide and have bought plenty of headphones so...

    JDS Labs C5/C5D (pg96) portable amp/amp+DAC

    I'm blown away by the improvement the C5D gives to the SoundMAGIC HP100 headphones.   The bass is so clean and tight and on the highest bass boost setting, the C5D gives me fantastic sub-bass lows without bleeding it anywhere else across the spectrum. My headphones only cost $250, but the C5D...

    JDS Labs C5/C5D (pg96) portable amp/amp+DAC

      I'm not sure if the ringtone plays, when I received a call on the bus this morning my phone was on silent.   1. is not necessary because; 2. is what i would normally do if the headphones were connected direct to my phone but this doesn't happen. You are misunderstanding me.   A call...

    JDS Labs C5/C5D (pg96) portable amp/amp+DAC

    Just got mine today, i'm pretty happy with it.   It made me do two things immediately. Uninstall the equalizer app, and turn off beats audio in the phone settings. What I found is that whilst your equalizer app may work at first, the second or third time you plugin the amp, it will completely...

    JDS Labs C5/C5D (pg96) portable amp/amp+DAC

      Thanks - I wasn't aware of that. That's good to know as the Note 3 is supposed to work fine with the C5D so the HTC One should too. I'll find out tomorrow or Friday when my unit arrives :)   I'm not sure what the amp specs are either, but it makes a massive difference. Using stock...

    JDS Labs C5/C5D (pg96) portable amp/amp+DAC

      Just an update to this, after having a chat with my headphone supplier of choice, they will correct the incorrect dimensions of the C5 on their website.   After further chatting, I am definitely sold on the C5D and happily paid extra to upgrade to the new model. Plus by using the DAC with...

    Comparisons: 36 of the Top Closed/Portable Headphones Around

    I've only just read the first post of this thread today, but haven't read all 74 pages!   Out of MacedonianHero's list I have the PSB M4U2 and the Bose QC15.   The Bose QC15 is what I use when travelling, as they really do have superb comfort and isolation. I have 2 gripes about this...

    Looking for comfier headphones than ath-m50

    Quote:   +1 make sure you get the 80 ohm or 32 ohm version instead of the 250 ohm version though. What's the difference?  The 250 ohm will be virtually silent without an amp - designed for home use so that's out of the question.   The 80 Ohm version sounds great and can be driven ok...
