    Sennheiser HD660S... Finally a successor for the HD650?

    Hi everyone....I have a question so basic, it's embarrassing. But here goes. I own the 660's as well as the 650's. As you know, each has a cable leading to each driver. The question is, do the cables need to be plugged into the socket in a certain way? Like, with the "L' and 'R' facing out, or...

    A Shout Out to Sennheiser

    Hi again.... I'll admit I'm tough on headphones. I do a national radio show, and I'm always on the road, in and out of professional recording studios and top radio stations. My beloved Sennheiser HD 650s, which I love in the recording booth, give me pure 'velvet' in my voice. Using a Neumann...

    B&O H9 Discussion and Impressions thread

    Having a bit of fun before I watch the Superbowl.   In Starbucks, doing a wireless headphone shootout. Testing overall ANC as well as musical qualities.   Disclaimer - I do like a good hard-hitting bass. If the artist calls for a sub hit - I want to hear it. As much as I enjoy my HIFIMAN...

    B&O H9 Discussion and Impressions thread

      Thanks for the reviews.   But I wouldn't pay any attention to them, good or bad. None whatsoever.   Because you can read reviews of any Bluetooth headphones on the market....and some reviewer will hate them, while another loves them.   Just today, I read a review of the Sony 1000x...

    B&O H9 Discussion and Impressions thread

    My replacement H9's arrived today....(my first set was DOA)   AMAZING!   I love 'em. I have been a happy H8 owner since they came out, but the full ear cups of the H9 are awesome, and the sound is beyond good.   Listening via Bluetooth to Google Play music on a Sony Xperia Z2 tablet, with...

    They don't fold into a 'football' shape, like the Sonys, Bose or Senn Momentum.   But they do, in fact, fold flat. The earcups rotate so that they provide a relatively small footprint.   Great for backpacks or laptop cases.

    I wish I could verify, but I no longer have 'em.....the H9's are en route back to the store where I got 'em.....another set will arrive soon!   Thanks

    B&O H9 Discussion and Impressions thread

    Well, I tried to reset the headphones, and nothing. Still dead.   I plugged them into a/c power, though....and tried again. Eventually, while holding the power button all the way up,  the light turned from blue to red....   But when I released it, it started a cycle of green - orange - green...

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    One more question.....   Really enjoying the 400is....incredible clarity. I'm hearing things I've never heard before, in music I've listened to many times.   So, I have a pair, with the 1/8" pin connectors, not the screw-in connectors. Anyone have a recommendation for a replacement cable...

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

      Thanks for the reply. Yes, these won't be living room headphones. The Senns lasted about a year. I appreciate the other suggestions.   As for the Leckington, no changes. Using it just the way Nick sent it to me. I just got the 400is a few minutes ago, so I won't be able to try the...

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    Hi again, Replacing some broken HD650's with the 400is. I need something that can take daily travel....pack 'em up in a backpack, take 'em out at a recording studio, put 'em away when the session's finished. I'm careful with my headphones but it was apparently too rough for the Senns. The...

    Sennheiser HD650s Going Bad

    Hi again,   I use Senn HD650's daily in a professional recording studio. Love 'em.   But a few months back I started hearing big problems - sound cutting out of one earpiece, and the other....distorted sound, etc. Not all the time, but enough that I had to look into repairs.   I thought it...

    Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H8 (Wireless Noise Cancelling On-Ear Headphones)

    Just bought these - thinking they might be better than the Definitive Technology Symphony 1. Used them for hours last night with my Samsung 4K UHDTV...phenomenal! Today, tried them in Starbucks with my brand new Dell XPS 15...they would connect with Bluetooth, then their status dropped from...

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

    OK, after experiencing that disappointing Bluetooth failure using the Momentum 2s, I decided to get serious.   I'm having a Bluetooth headphone shootout.   Sennheiser Momentum 2s vs. Definitive Technology Symphony 1s vs. Denon AH - GC20s.   As I write this, I'm in a Starbucks, right next...

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

    Thanks again for getting me up and running with USB audio. I appreciate it!   And after listening to it all day, gotta say, it's wonderful.   OK...the Leckerton amp seems to be a perfect companion. It gives the Momentum depth in bass, and a clarity unlike anything else.   The only reason I...

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

    Thank you!   Thanks to you, as I write this, I am listening to the Momentums via USB audio through my laptop. And they sound excellent.    Your instructions covered every single step, which is what was so helpful.    Turns out, I had done everything but one step...   - I had turned off...

    Denon AH-GC20 Headphone Discussion Thread

    Finally.   I am wearing the Denon Globe Cruiser AH-GC20 headphones right now, after a month of trying other bluetooth headphones. And finally, I have the right pair.   Before I get into the others - these are by far the most comfortable. I have a big head, and big ears. The earcups cover my...

    Question for the Experts

      Thank you! I appreciate the guidance.    So the Oppo BDP-93 is set to LPCM, at a LPCM rate limit of 192k. It's connected to the Compass using coaxial cable. And with the headphones, you are correct - it sounds excellent.    Again, many thanks!

    Xperia's Z2 noise cancellation system & Sony's in ear buds

    I have the Xperia Tablet Z2, with Verizon 4G LTE, and bought the noise-cancelling in-ear headphones, the MDR-NC31EM. I did not get them free, as the first 1000 Verizon customers did. I was too late, but I bought them online anyway.   In short, they are surprisingly good.    I usually use...

    Audio-gd Compass - trouble with audio droputs

    Hi    I bought an Audio-gd Compass back when they first offered them for sale. About 2 years later, I noticed an occasional audio dropout - like a quick 1 second blank spot...but then the sound would return.   The Compass was being used exclusively for PC audio, fed to the Compass via...

    Beyerdynamic MMX 300 or Sennheiser PC350

    Using the MMX 300's right now, and they are truly excellent. Sound just like the Beyerdynamic 770's...which I always liked. I'm coming straight out of my work PC, a Dell with the stock sound card. The MMX 300's, plugged straight in, are nothing to write home about. Thin bass, ok sound. But...
