    what's more important, a good DAC or a Good Amp?

    If what you want is a surround type sound. I think that you must start with the headphones, then the amp and source. For gaming or movies, if you want a large sound stage that has depth. I would say akg 702 on the cheap-ish or, go for broke and get some Stax. Simplifies the amp portion a bit...

    The older version of those. They have the XX branded on them. I paid $7 for them on clearance at kmart lol. I need something sooner though. I have lost the left channel.

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    Quote: That would be a yes. I had your sound card and even my simple Z model is better much less the ZxR. More of an improvement in gaming and movie sound than for music.

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    The Z is a card which you should get primarily for its ability to produce outstanding gaming sound. I will say that I have not heard better gaming sound ever. The directional sound and detail of this card is amazing.   If all you are doing is listening to music, I would always suggest an...

    Sennheiser HD 598 Impressions Thread

    Quote: Sometimes that is just a hair in the driver. Or something got loose inside the cup and is rattling about. Take a close look at it. Take off the driver cover if you need to. Otherwise, Sennheiser will fix or replace it under warranty usually at no charge.   Listening to some Live...

    VSONIC GR04 standard edition?

    Thanks! I thought they might be the ticket at the price point. Are they bulky? Seem to be square shaped? I listen in bed sometimes and need them to be a bit flush for that. If not, no worries. I can always grab some phillips 3850s or whatever they are nowadays for nighty night usage.
