    Beyerdynamic DT990 - 32 ohm different than 250?

    +1 on using a portable amp. as stated it is a cheaper way to go compared to buying a new set of phones. Is it worth it? Well that depends on you and how you want to listen to music. You might not want to carry around an extra amp. If money is not an issue and you dont care about spending it...

    Wolfson DAC confirmed for Galaxy S3!

    Not sure if anyone has tested the HRT Music Streamer II with the S3 yet, but it works for me via USB.

    Monster Turbine Pro Gold/Copper w/ Controltalk Price Drop?

    For the price they are still worth it in my opinion. That being said would i buy them for 400, no. This past holiday season the monster turbine coppers w control talk went for 220 on amazon. i would wait for them to go on sale. Same opinion with sennheisers top iem as they did the same also.

    What next? Where do I go from here?

    @gwarmi: I am not looking at a price standpoint but more so searching for different audio experiences. I definitely feel like I may not appreciate a high end system (if price had a factor in audio quality) at this time when there are probably so much inbetween. I would take any considerations. I...

    What next? Where do I go from here?

    Basically trying to figure out where to go next? Should I get new headphones or invest in amps or sources? I've been itching to find new headphones that may open my ears to the next level with trance/electronic. At the same time feel like I may be missing out on different aspects of audio with...

    Your recommendations for my Headphones! First buy ever < 220$ USD

    I haven't listened to them personally but being these would be your first headphones, more than likely you'd love them. Assuming you are just entering the world of quality sound that is. Just enjoy the headphones/music, you can't go wrong with those IMO.  ...

    Your recommendations for my Headphones! First buy ever < 220$ USD

    I breifly listened to the Skullcandy Aviators (BestBuy), and did contemplate on purchasing them also. Imo most retail stores are going to priced higher than any major online retailer. You would have so much more better options as you already know. One good thing about best buy is that if you...

    Sennheiser ie8/ie7 or Klipsch image S4

    I'd get the IE8's if money is not an issue. I personally would even prefer the Senns over your studios. To me they are built with two different objectives.   I feel most (not all) reviews regarding the S4s come from the average non-audiophile consumers. 5/5 stars because it was the best bang...

    Samsung galaxy S2 vs IPhone 4

    I am reminded daily of the disappointment in sound quality coming from my Galaxy S2. Not a picky listener but it just feels lifeless.   Ended up carrying my JDS ClipZip Copper Pro around...

    Monster Turbine Pro Gold/Copper w/ Controltalk Price Drop?

    Honestly I rather have the non-controltalk if I'd be able to get it for $189. The mic controller quality is just horrible and flimsy. You can just hear the plastic parts moving around while handling the headphones.
