    What's the best amp for HD800

      That's a very good point.    But to me this is a very complicated issue. In short, the path from an original musical event to us hearing it in a sound system has, in the middle, the media into which it was recorded. The problem is that we can only control what happens between the media and...

    History of the AKG K1000?

    It's incredible to have one of the developers of a headphone that is arguably among the greatest (and most adventurous) ever made here! I hope you feel proud to see so much love for your creation here, Heinz!

    Reply to review by 'leonardo drummond' on item 'Sennheiser Orpheus HE-90 '

    Very nice!   I'm curious as to how the Orpheus sounds with the HEV90, especially since the two complaints that you have are, at least to me, not issues with the HE90 paired with the HeadAmp Aristaeus that I lived with for a month (and reviewed, btw). The bass on this combo was by a significant...

    ECP Audio - DSHA-1, L-2, Black Diamond

    Why on earth did Sennheiser go with silver for the HD800? It looks absolutely incredible in black. It's just something else.

    [Multi-Review] Hifiman HM901, Fiio X5, Sony ZX1, Hisound Studio 3rd Anv, iPhone 4

      Have you read the whole thread? The number of people agreeing with Eke is not small. I'm definitely one of them. I just got my ZX1 and my impressions are pretty similar to his. While I can say that the sound is overall warmer and fuller than that of my iPod Classic, it's really not a large...

    New JH Audio flagship! "Siren Series Roxanne"

    It's been a long time since I've seen this thread, so I'm sorry if this has already been discussed: I see from the last picture a different nut, is that the new metal one? Or just a different plastic?

      I see, then.   Note, however, that I never said anything about 256kbps VBR. As I said before in this topic, I find the difference between lossless and anything below 320kbps to be detectable; I can consistently differentiate a 256kbps from a 320kbps or lossless file. But if you're saying...

      Well, in my opinion what we regard as "truth" is a representation of a certain state of reality, so there can be only one if we're talking about a condition of physical things, which is the case here.   Regardless, my question stands – I ask because you may have used a badly encoded mp3 for...

      How were these tests conducted, and where did you get those mp3s? Have you conducted a test using a lossless file and an mp3 encoded with a good codec taken from a CD that you own?     There you go! Couldn't agree more.     You mean when I spoke about skepticism? If you do, then...
