    Finally ordered my first real pair of cans!

    Nice; do they loosen up after a few days? From what I've read, they have a pretty tight clamp force initially, and I don't have a very small head...

    Not bad at all; seeing that as of last month I am a college student!

    Finally ordered my first real pair of cans!

    How much per month? (Assuming it is a monthly fee)

    Finally ordered my first real pair of cans!

    Thanks! I'll give a brief report of my first impressions tomorrow! (After a decent burn in, of course)

    HD 598 vs DT990 w/fiio e11

    Do you think my specific mobo audio chip will hinder the dt990s significantly?

    HD 598 vs DT990 w/fiio e11

    D3 or D5, sorry   Yeah, i've put a few out there, but i've also learned an extensive amount regarding headphones in the past week.   I have an e6 by the way; would change much if I ran that with the bravo 2 for eq adjustment/enhancement?

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157378&cm_re=asrock_h87-_-13-157-378-_-Product   That or I could just purchase a cheap external one; the fiio e5 and e3 are $30

    HD 598 vs DT990 w/fiio e11

    I ordered exactly that a bit ago. I am worried that I will need a DAC; is this the case? or will my pc's on board audio suffice? The system was built this year.

    Finally ordered my first real pair of cans!

    I have, at long last, decided to get myself a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 990s! They seem like top of the line build and quality, but rather hard to drive. For that, I purchased the Bravo V2 $70 tube amp. That little bad boy has some solid reviews and enough juice to power the 990s. I may end up...

    Amp for the dt990 pro 250ohm

    I may do just that... Thanks for the info... Look into that bravo v2, though; I bet you'd be surprised at how well it's been reviewed (with a higher quality replacement tube that is)... Also, do you think a decent amp and the 990s would outperform the infamous 598s? They would end up being very...

    Stuck between hd598 and hp200

    I think you may be right about the 598s... My other option as if now is the dt990 pros with a nice little tube amp for the same price. Do you think the beyerdynamics a would outperform the sennheisers?

    Amp for the dt990 pro 250ohm

    That was my plan until I found the bravo v2... I can't post the link, but it's $60 on amazon, and is apparently a nice sounding tube-amp that is powerful and looks nice

    Amp for the dt990 pro 250ohm

    From what I've read, these can be used with a mere iphone, but will be hindered without an amp. The $140 price tag has coaxed me to consider purchasing them with an amp rather than a 32 ohm pair. I own the fiioe6, but understand that I will need more. I have a $75 limit for the amp and was...

    Stuck between hd598 and hp200

    This will be my final amateur, monotonous thread regarding my audio dilemma, I swear... I would simply like to know from someone with more "hands on" experience to recommend one of these two pair of phones to me. Working with a budget around $200... I initially wanted an ADxxx series, but the...

    HD598 or AD900x

    Thanks for the sound magic can recommendation! I thought I had found every decent 200 dollar pair of open ear phones out there, and I've looked into the he300s, but many say they're nothing compared to the he400s, which is discouraging; also, they initially have a tight clamp. How would the...
