    Headphone help

    I own a pair and find them very comfortable. They have nice quality bass as well.

    AudioTechnica ATH-M50 or The Philips CitiScape Uptown ??

    I own a pair of M-50's but have not heard the Uptown. If you are interested in other options, look into the Beyerdynamic dt-770. A nice quality closed headphone.

    Did anybody here "switch" from speakers to headphones?

     I bought the Auralex risers as well and they were a big help. I also installed some sound dampening window shades which also darken my living room. I have a plasma TV so darkening is necessary. The combination of the risers and the shades have made a huge difference. The cops haven't been here...

    Burson HA-160DS + HE-500 problem! Volume can't get high enough!

    I have the same problem powering my HE-500's with a Beyerdynamic A-1. Not a problem with my other headphones. The 500's like a lot of output power as do most orthodynamic cans. I recently purchased a Woo WA6-se and no longer have the problem as the Woo amp is much more powerful. You could also...

    need help buying new headphones (:

    For the OP, the Beyerdynamic dt-770 in 80 ohms is a nice option. Closed, nice bass, but well over your stated budget I'm afraid. Perhaps a used pair?

    need help buying new headphones (:

     I was listening to M-50's from a Fiio E-11 yesterday from a Sansa Fuze + while doing yard work. Sounded nice with good bass. The E-11 has 3 EQ settings so you can increase the bass if you like.

    Help this Newbie Steer Clear of Beats!

    Look into the Beyerdynamic dt-770. Closed, comfortable, good bass. They come in 250 and 80 ohm versions.

    Allen & Heath Xone XD2-53 vs Audio-Technica ATH-PRO700MK2ANV for DJ use...

    I have the ATH-PRO700MK2 and find it VERY uncomfortable and I find the sound muddied with bloated bass. I've never worn the Allen & Heath.

    Got my bro into hifi. What headphones and dac/amp should I get him?

    Not sure about the AMP/DAC but the Beyerdynamic dt770 250 ohm would be a good choice for closed headphones.

    head fi really is a wallet drainer

     I guess I'm guilty of buying and keeping many pairs of headphones and spending way too much money. But honestly, I enjoy all but one pair and try to use them all evenly. So now I've gone and purchased a tube amp .... a Woo Audio WA6se. At the moment, I'm running off a Beyer A1 ss amp but after...

    Woo Audio wa6se and headphone synergy

    Quote: I purchased a cheap 14 guage power cable ... Tripp brand. If I have a problem with it, I'll check out AudioQuest. In fact, my interconnects are a semi-high end Audioquest cable.

    Woo Audio wa6se and headphone synergy

     My WA6se will be coming with the Princess Mesh rectifier and the 6GL7/6DE7 tube upgrade. I don't believe the stock tubes will be included but I'm not sure about that. I'll be connecting the amp to an Oppo 95 using the stereo analog connections so the set-up will utilize the 95's Sabre DAC.  The...
