      I have the exact same mod as oqvist since I bought my pair from the guy who modded his headphones :)   ( Yes, that means he experimented on my headphones.. ;) )   I bought them modded and was curious hearing them without the damping, so I removed it.   I tried to listen to them for...

    Quote:     I´m not quite sure I understand how it would be easier to remove the cups?   To me, the scary part is removing the cups :o   The screws are sooo tiny, you're just waiting for them to gnaw of the fine threads in the wooden cup ^^

    Headphones that have more 'BASS' than the Sony XB500?

    Quote:     The difference is if you actually want to be able to follow a bassline as it was recorded or if you just want ear massage..

    Headphones you regretted buying the most

    Ultrasone Pro 900.   Didn't hate them or anything, it´s just that I've liked all the other headphones that I´ve owned better :)

    Do high-end headphones sound more speaker-like than lower-end headphones?

    The most "speaker-like" headphone I´ve ever heard is the JVC/Victor DX1000.   They have a really speaker-like bass and sound stage, I think thats why I can sit and listen to them for hours and hours and just enjoy the music withour ever tiring :)

    Grado PS500 vs Audeze LCD-2

    I think that the PS500 have more bass, while the LCD-2 have more refined and detailed bass. Both has good sub-bass, the LCD-2 might dig a little deeper, but i´m not really sure of that.   I don´t think that SanjiWatsuki has ever heard the PS500, it doesn´t have the usual "Grado sound", it...

    Question about amps in general (sorry, might be dumb)

    What does the documentation that came with the amp say?   If it says that you should unplug the phones, I´d do that. Otherwise not :)   But to answer you question; "Is it safer to unplug headphones before turning an amp on and off?" - Yes, it is, but it´s normally unnecessary.   If...

    Lookng for new headphones!

    BTW, a cheap setup to "get immersed into the music" in my experience is to buy a nice vintage receiver (in my case the Marantz 22xx-series) and the "new version" of Sennheiser HD650, and a decent DAC to go with that :)   / ChriG

    Lookng for new headphones!

    Regarding amp, I can recommend the Matrix M-stage. It´s a really nice amp for it´s price.   http://www.headfonia.com/matrix-m-stage/   There is also a version with integrated DAC, but I have read that the DAC doesn´t match the amp in SQ.   / ChriG

    Best Headphone for around $300

    I would also recommend the D2000. I have the D5000 and they sounded OK when I tried them in my desktop computer at work (on-board sound card), it should be the same with the D2000.   Its also possible to mod the D2000 when/if you get a DAC/amp if you want more hifi kind of sound :)   //...
