    Thoughts on a bunch of DACs (and why delta-sigma kinda sucks, just to get you to think about stuff)

    Adorama is an authorized dealer and a great place to buy the MA900.

    "Mad Dog" by MrSpeakers, modified Fostex T50RP review

    I like to think of the MD as pixie dust and the 650/880 as fairy dust.

    Comfort from AKG K240 Studio is absolutely terrible

    Check out the Sony MA900 - FWIR it's extremely lightweight and comfortable with sound close to what you described

    So a great deal of people prefer the Q701 to the HD650?

    Audio Technica updates their open headphones "AD" Series: AD2000x, AD1000x, AD900x, AD700x and AD500x

    If I buy the O2 amp from JDS Labs, what gain settings should I request? (Q701)

    Q701 impressions thread

    The Q701 does seem to have cheap construction.  It is entirely plastic and feels like a toy a compared to the aluminum and magnesium AD900.

    Q701 impressions thread
