    The Official Sennheiser IE800S thread!

    +1 I had the same initial experience with mine. Demo sample sounded great in a shop but the new pair sounded exactly as you described. Put them somewhere and let them sound for a couple of days on above average volume. Play something meaty, like a black/death metal album so all frequencies are...

    Beyerdynamic DT 150: Bloody Brilliant!

    Fair question. To answer it, I must dwell on my personal approach to identifying the sound. The very first thing I notice while auditioning is not down to earth pragmatic parameters like lows, mids, treble etc. For the most part I don't care about them with the exception I don't like warm sound...

    Beyerdynamic DT 150: Bloody Brilliant!

    I'm afraid my opinion will counterbalance yours. I had the opposite experience pairing them with Chord Mojo in the distant past and I didn't like the sound at all.... After all, I think I wasn't happy with Chord Mojo sound signature altogether in the first place. I know a lot of people like it...

    Beyerdynamic DT 150: Bloody Brilliant!

    Here we go (in mm): However I would strongly recommend AGAINST changing stock pads if you care about the sound quality of these wonderful headphones. Been there, heard there.

    The Official Sennheiser IE800S thread!

    Today, I'd like to express my utmost disappointment with Sennheiser IE800s quality control. As I already have and have been using IE800 for over a year I thought it would be a no brainer to upgrade and get a fresh pair of IE800S to couple with my newly purchased AK SP1000M only to find out that...

    Does anyone know where is it still possible to find and buy iBasso PB2? Not much interested in any other amplifier on the market nowadays.

    If anyone have been wondering about new Burson V5i opamps, I tested them in my iBasso PB2:     I also did a little review of them which is available at http://www.head-fi.org/products/burson-audio-supreme-sound-opamp-v5i/reviews/16822

    Review by 'privilege15' on item 'Burson Audio Supreme Sound Opamp V5i'

    Intro   I still remember that day when I received Burson V5i Dual Opamps in my mailbox.     It was 3 days prior to passing my 8 hour long engineering lab exam of my life to finally get certified under the CCIE program. Before passing the exam I could hardly do anything else but to sit in...

      I'm running with MUSES01 opamps and LT1028ACN8 buffers with 8-pin DIP heatsinks because the buffers become pretty hot.   I read on some other DIY forum for hi-fi/hi-end electronics that LT1028ACN8 go really well with MUSES01. That's how I tried this combination which eventually appeared to...

        It’s been quite some time since I retired from searching for the right sound that would soothe my ears after spending thousands of dollars on various buys and tries. Since I found the right one I rarely pay visit to head-fi, only to scan through interesting updates on the market. Non...

    It is a DIY amplifier. It will sound as good as you make it. If you mean how good it is in stock, I yet to find out. It's still in transit.
