    Quote:   It totally depends on the bitrate of the music - higher bitrate may have less hiss, especially if you're using more revealing equipment. I use an iPod and to me even the line out output is not hiss free (either line out issue or the issue with the iPod DAC itself). So I think at...

    [REVIEW] Logitech Ultimate Ears UE900 - It Does the Triple Fi 10 Proud

    Great review! The only thing that prevents me from taking these is probably the price (and yes I do agree with your comment about the airiness). Just interested how'd you think they'd shore up in the soundstage department against the BA200s, I might have gotten a bad fit when I tried them out.

    AKG K 271 MK II or Shure SHR940?

    Same Headphones, 3 Different Devices, 3 Different Results

    The DAC probably makes the difference. The EQ setting may be different so to accentuate the differences - try listening on a flat EQ (or eq off)

    Travel Case for AKG K550 (and high quality cable turtle)

    I just tied the cable up to a desired length: maybe say around 1.8m. That works if you have a lack of cash :D

    Looking for Closed back, neutral yet lively, not needed to be amped headphones under 300$. Help please!

    AKG K550/Beyer DT880? If you already have an amp these will probably scale very nice

    Help!!!UE700/600 which should I go for?

    Personally find the 600 to have muffled treble. The 700 scale beautifully with an amp though. I picked the 700s over the 600 as i don't think the price difference is worth the difference in sound.
