    IEM in $400 range

    Hi guys, I've been away from these forums and the hobby for 3.5 years and don't own any headphones anymore! I want to finally get myself a good pair of IEMs. Though it has been a while I remember that I enjoyed the LCD 2's sound signature the best among the numerous headphones I used to own...

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    I wonder if the HE 560 might replace the LCD 2 on the wall of fame. The HE 560 does appear to be quite interesting, a relatively lightweight/comfortable (apparently) planar magnetic headphone without the acoustic drawback of large magnets.    I hope it's good, some fierce competition between...

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    Ok let me get this straight, He Who Must Not be Named  "believes" the ES9018 or ES9012 can't improve the sound quality even though they measure better! Surely that statement goes against everything I thought he stands for.

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    I had a question about the ODAC. How does the ES9023 chip objectively perform compared to the ES9018 chip? I know the latter is much more expensive and is used in high end DACs. Any thoughts?

    Sorry, my mistake. Unfortunately, I can't seem to edit the poll so just vote as though it was in the $1000-$2000 category.
