    Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H6 (2nd Generation) vs. Sennheiser HD 598 Cs - A Newer & MORE POWERFUL Sith Lord Emerges??

    That's cool Martyn! I would've suggested if you like Sennheiser to get the HD 598 CS, but then I'd read that they look almost exactly the same as the 569, but more importantly that they sound EXACTLY the same as the 569 too! It's possible to find them the 598 CS cheaper new, but right now...

    Sennheiser HD1 Over-Ear Review

    Hey echoleaf, From what I can recall, the mic is built into the cable itself. See the original post above for more info.

    Closed-Back Planar Magnetic vs. Open-Back Dynamic Headphones: Which One Wins Out?!

    That's interesting. Wow, sounds like you've heard all the versions eh? Yeah compared to my old CD of their Live album, this newest Hi-Res versions sounds way better! The drums on "Don't Stop" for example make you feel like you're actually there at the show. I remember an interview with...

    Closed-Back Planar Magnetic vs. Open-Back Dynamic Headphones: Which One Wins Out?!

    YW! Generally speaking, if something is labeled Hi-Res, its master should be taken as close to or equal to studio quality as possible. That's my take on it anyway. I've compared enough of my Hi-Res purchases with previous Hi-Res, but more so CDQ and def mp3 copies, and as I'd said, the...

    Closed-Back Planar Magnetic vs. Open-Back Dynamic Headphones: Which One Wins Out?!

    Sure man! Glad I could help. Yeah, exactly. If I thought it made ANY difference at all, I'd prob still be sticking to FLAC to this day. But that just isn't the case. That's a good question. It might be, but one other thing I don't like about streaming is, if you happen to not have a strong...

    Closed-Back Planar Magnetic vs. Open-Back Dynamic Headphones: Which One Wins Out?!

    Oh yeah, it will for sure power your Sines........18 ohms means it should be over the 180mW limit (for 22 ohms), though not sure what the sensitivity rating is on the Sine. Yeah Shanling needs to share more info like others do. Haha yes, it's not tiny, but def on the small & thin side. Thx for...

    Closed-Back Planar Magnetic vs. Open-Back Dynamic Headphones: Which One Wins Out?!

    I C. Well if you've listened to plenty of planars vs. dynamics and came to that conclusion, then that's somethin' to consider as well. I will keep that in mind. For me though, I don't know if I'm at (or ever will be?) at a point where I could just randomly tell the difference b/t a planar and a...

    Closed-Back Planar Magnetic vs. Open-Back Dynamic Headphones: Which One Wins Out?!

    So if you don't feel it's the size of the driver or the distance to one's ears, then what dictates how wide a soundstage will be?

    Closed-Back Planar Magnetic vs. Open-Back Dynamic Headphones: Which One Wins Out?!

    Yeah. It's best to do your research first. Though I feel like at this point that you can use soundstage and headstage interchangeably.

    iFi audio xDSD- The Official Thread

    I feel like I had a similar connection issue with my xDSD a couple years ago. Someone I think in here maybe or else your customer service phone line told me how to hard reset it. I def didn't let the battery drain and try to reset. But whatever they told me to do I remember worked like a charm...

    Hifiman Sundara vs AKG K702

    Yeah I can see that happening. I def wouldn't bother using my amp/DAC on my earphones, unless I actually bought like $1000 earphones, which I'd NEVER do! lol Most I'd spend is prob $200 (like my wireless Samsung AKG Galaxy Buds+ lol). Yes, on more sensitive ones, you def don't want to use TOO...
