    A very simple question

    A friend of mine is looking for some headphones, I know there is a thread on the forums with a lot of headphones in comparison (about 50?) I would like to ask you if you know the thread where all those headphones are compared.   Thanks =)

    Audigy 2 compatiblity

    Thanks for your reply, There are quite a few Audigy 2's for sale on 2nd hand sites. Since I don't want to spend to much money, the Audigy's seem pretty good quality for that price.

    Audigy 2 compatiblity

    Hey Head-fiers,   Since I've got a new computer without a soundcard I would like to get a proper soundcard. I've been looking for the Audigy 2 soundcards. But I've got one problem, how do I know it's compatible with my Motherboard? The motherboard I"m using is the GA-790FXTA-UD5.   And...

    Sony MDR-XB500 vs Sony MDR-XB700

    Quote:   Will the Sony HST-471 or the Grundig V4200 have enough power to give the xb700 enough power? I hope one of them does!

    Sony MDR-XB500 vs Sony MDR-XB700

    I don't really think the XB500 is "uncomfortable", but I haven't compared it to the XB700. I might ask the XB700 for my birthday, haven't got enough power to make the XB700 better than the XB500 atm anyway. Also, I use my iPod a lot because I travel a lot, I think the XB500 is better straight...

    Sony MDR-XB500 vs Sony MDR-XB700

    Hmm.. sounds worth looking into a bit more. Do sound cards grant a lot better SQ than the usual comp output?   I think Snow Patrol is awesome! One of my favourite bands. The song "Run" is very good, especially when you compare it to the version Leona Lewis sang. The original is just better...

    Haha, WOW. Looks pretty basshead indeed! How to get the kX Audio?

    Sony MDR-XB500 vs Sony MDR-XB700

    I turned the preamp slider down a bit already, the 250Hz does make quite a big difference. Turning it up a lot makes the voices a lot warmer but more unreal, turning it down makes the voices a lot colder but more real. Especially when listening to Snow Patrol the difference is quite big.  ...

    Sony MDR-XB500 vs Sony MDR-XB700

    Not noticing any distortion atm, I'm going to make an XB500 EQ for some different music genres I guess. Listening to Coldplay now and I love the way it sounds, just as nice as my sony stereo set, but now I don't upset my neighbours. Do you've got a more aggressive EQ setting suitable for Dance...

    Sony MDR-XB500 vs Sony MDR-XB700

    I'm using my computer atm, going to check out my sony amp when my jack extension piece is in. I'm using the iTunes software EQ atm with these settings:

    And the XB500 is in! Love it, gonna try EQing it to my likes. I really don't know where to find a hardware EQ though.. Never needed it before, anyone that can help me?

    Sony MDR-XB500 vs Sony MDR-XB700

    Yeah.. Apple is the best (to me) with designs, apps and other features. But one thing they complete forgot, the iPod is designed to play music and should at least have all the features that have anything to do with playing music. A fully customizable EQ is one of those features..   Just...

    Sony MDR-XB500 vs Sony MDR-XB700

    Quote: Looks pretty sweet, but there is not an option of EQing on your iPod when on the move? I would love to try and get some right presets which I can vary between. Got plenty of time to seek the right EQ's when travelling.

    Sony MDR-XB500 vs Sony MDR-XB700

    Sweet, that's what I wanted to hear! I am going to run them straight out of my iPod too, thanks! I'm ordering the Headphones right now, I'll post my experiences in this very same thread.
