    RME Babyface Pro good for 600 ohm headphones?

    Yewps! Mis-typed, meant the 1/4” out! Corrected, thanks! That makes sense, as a 6DBu difference is non-trivial. I can’t say as I noticed a sound difference though, your ears are better than mine!

    RME Babyface Pro good for 600 ohm headphones?

    For the future searchers out there - the RME Babyface pro headphone out is very powerful. I have used the following at the following volumes which are comfortable to me (which are probably a bit louder than average, but not deafening) Hifiman HE4XX @ around 25% Beyer DT880/250 @ a bit above 25%...

    Need some new versatile Home 'Studio' cans with a bit more precision

    I ended up with the 840s. I tried the 940s, and they were more comfortable, but the construction seemed more delicate (perhaps not, but that was my impression). The sound of them, while also very good (they were my #2 pick) didn't seem quite as 'neutral' to me - they were more fun to listen to...

    Ok, lots of great opinions here. I'll have to try to track these down locally to give them the comfort test. Thanks guys!

    Need some new versatile Home 'Studio' cans with a bit more precision

    Thanks!   Lots of good notes here re:glasses, and driving the T50RP. Also, I was concerned about the m50x size - I've owned some ATs in the past, but my huge head is at the max. I'm going go to try some of these on!

    No one else? I'm leaning towards the Shures

    Need some new versatile Home 'Studio' cans with a bit more precision

    Interesting - when I used to frequent Head-fi years ago, that was considered a very bassy headphone, and not really associated with clarity. Am I wrong here?

    Need some new versatile Home 'Studio' cans with a bit more precision

    So, my trusty Beyer DT250-80's that I've used for years are finally starting to go :( and I'm looking for replacements to use in my very non-pro home studio. I do sound design for videogames & when I have time, make IDMish music. I do my critical work on monitors, but being a home studio, lots...

    Phonak Audeo (PFE) Thread

    Bought what I'm guessing is the non-updated version with the mic for the old iphone. Bought the GF the sennheiser canalphones and considered getting them as well. Glad I splurged on the Phonak's instead, as I was genuinely surprised at how good they sound and how bloody comfortable they are...

    Need decent cheap efficient clip-ons - IN CANADA

    Hey guys, Got a little project I want to try and hack together by the weekend. Need a KSC75-like clip-on and they need to be purchasable this week in Canada. I've never seen a pair of KSC75's for sale in radioshack/circuitcity, so any other suggestions of where to get some cheap Clip-ons in...

    Sony player kinda ruined the iPod for me.

    I was amazed that the clix 2 sounded better than my sony A3000 - I bought the sony knowing that I would have to struggle through mediocre software and a weak-sauced slow-as-molasses interface in favor of really great sound. It's a shame I find the clix 2 too small, because it's an otherwise...

    Review: ZERO 24 BIT/192KHz DAC/Headphone Amp/Pre-Amp

    Great review - did you get to spend any time testing low impedance/highly efficient phones on the ZERO?

    DJ headphones...are they (even) worth it ?

    Used to spin, but found more love in production, in my short stint with tables, and interacting with other DJ's, I have tried a few of these cans.. - technics RPDJ 1200 (great, if i needed a supraaural, bomb-proof portable, this'd be it - also the most capable "DJ" can of the bunch, but not...

    A decent 5 disc changer around 300$

    My father's beloved 5-Disc changer finally died (Teac I believe). The prized feature was the ability to shuffle tracks from all 5 CDs, with little to no effort. He's looking to replace his old player but hasn't found quite what he's looking for. How does the Sony SCDCE595 weigh in and does it...

    Quebecers - Denon AH-D2000 at Dumoulin

    After a bit more research, I suspect they may have been black D1000's, oh well.
