    All around headphone advice (Gaming, Music, Movies)

    Thump in bass is known as sub bass. The problem with sub bass is that it's not particularly well produced on headphones. Even with speakers, it typically takes a sub to really get any feel of realism. Personally i prefer more punchy, upper  bass. Which would be more suited to you rock tastes...

    Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread

    I would agree that a standalone amp is you best bet. I have found that some amp/dac combos lack a little extra umph. It makes good sense that this is simply derived from a lack of voltage. Many praise the driving ability of tube amp, but I honestly can confirm or deny that. But what I would like...

    looking for my first pair of "proper" headphones.

    over the ear will sacrifice a lot in the ways of looks in most cases. Um, in that range though i'd go for the shure srh 840.  It's a personal favorite of mine. Decently balanced, a touch of mid emphasis, a nice sound stage. Theyre easy to drive. As well as isolate well. though they are a touch...

    looking for my first pair of "proper" headphones.

    Id say the phiaton ms 300 just based on you need forgood looks. Goodness. They are like headphone supermodels. Bass wise they should be good for you. Theyre a touch on the bright side. Bass is incredily tactile. Perhaps a touch to much so for some. And il admit it can get a touch overshadowed at...

        Hidden amidst an array of confusing sister models, the Vsonic GR04 Pro Flagship Edition is one of the best values in IEM's. The Pro Flagship is second only to the much acclaimed GR07 in the Vsonic lineup; however at about half the price proves a far better value. Coupling intuitive...

    Review by 'thecansmancan' on item 'Phiaton MS 300 Premium Headphones With Double Shelled Carbon Fiber Enclosure and Closed-Ear Type Rear Enclosure For Concert Hall Quality Sound'

      Bright and aggressive, these cans certainly aren't for everyone. However, they have this euphoric presence about them that draws me back time and time again. As well, their small size and low impedance make them the ideal portable...if only they isolated just a little better. At the $67...

    Review by 'thecansmancan' on item 'Sennheiser HD 600'

        After over two decades of service, the HD 600 is still going strong. Since the early days of its introduction, the HD 600 has grown to become something of reference point within the audiophile community. Furthermore, its neutral, airy sound has made it a favorite among audio engineers...

    Quote: I use ebay all the time for my stuff, great way to get deals. Also, check out this little company called massdrop. They're pretty awesome, they buy in bulk, kinda heading the group up if you will. Essentially you get a new product for a great price, and the run headphone related gear...

    Sennheiser Amperior: The Rivals?

    Quote: You're definitely right, they aren't the can for everyone. They have been commonly compared to Grado. Now I can't personally attest to this, as I have limited experience with Grado. But from what I've read they do sound very similar. It's such a unique sound signature.    The...
