    The New HD 560S: Linear Acoustics at a Breakthrough Value

    Thank you for the response. I'm talking about the cable input on the headphone itself. I can't see how a 2.5mm is more used by the Head-fi audience than a standard 3.5mm input? By using a 3.5mm input (preferentially without the locking mechanism), we could use a plethora of cables and easily...

    The New HD 560S: Linear Acoustics at a Breakthrough Value

    The 560S is a really good headphone for gaming. Too bad I had to crack my unit open and remove the lock inside, so I could use a regular 3.5mm mic cable. Why not use a standard 3.5mm universal input jack from the start?

    If you still love Etymotic ER4, this is the thread for you...

    Guys, what would be a recommended EQ setting to make the ER2SE mimic ER2XR's frequency response? Someone suggested +6db low shelf @125hz Q7.0, but I'm not sure it's right. Thanks

    Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7 Discussion Thread

    I got the Yaxi MSR7 Comfort pads, and they are indeed very comfortable and sound good. I'm just not 100% satisfied with the upper bass of this headphones. They sound kind of "cuppy". But I'm not afraid of a little EQ, so everything is good

    Very intriguing. Have you ever thought about researching this in the university?

    Thank you so much. This fixed the upper bass hump that bothered me so much!

    AKG K361/K371

    Guys, do they sell spare pads for the k371? I can’t find it. If not, it’s not a durable headphone. The pleather will eventually wear out, and i don’t want to use brainwave pads that change the sound.

    AKG K361/K371

    Yes, I watched all of them when they were released. Unfortunately, I can't do anything about it, I guess. The store I bought from won't accept it as malfunctional (my free return period has expired), and I don't believe Harman would pay shipment from Brazil and then send one back because of this...

    AKG K361/K371

    This is what I had to do to keep the hinge still. Now I can finally hold my phone without worrying about it messing up the adjustment. I can't believe someone designed such a bad hinge design for a headphone made to be used in studios. Now to think about something prettier.

    New Dragonfly Black and Red Discussion

    Guys, my DF black 1.5 is too loud for my current phones. is it ok to use it at very low volumes (5-15 range on windows 10)? Is there any issues like raised noise floor, channel imbalance or anything else that I should worry about by using a volume that low? I heard that the Black employs an...

    Out Of Your Head - new virtual surround simulator

    Thank you for your insights. I understand what you mean! I'm aware that there will never be perfection, and that every pair of ears will hear things differently. What I'm seeking is a bit of a consensus on what are the best practices regarding EQ when using OOYH, more about achieving the...

    Out Of Your Head - new virtual surround simulator

    Adding a bit to this: Regarding EQ (target curve), there is apparently no consensus here. This is what I gathered so far by reading most of this thread: - edwardsean and phoenixdogfan recommend the Sonarworks Reference 3 curve - Zenvota suggests that we do some "inverting EQ" to compensate...

    Out Of Your Head - new virtual surround simulator

    I see! But my dac still sees 44.1khz when playing music through OOYH

    Out Of Your Head - new virtual surround simulator

    Another question: is it really necessary to output 48.000 hz sample rate to OOYH (as recommended on earlier posts)? I use Spotify and it doesn’t have the option. Sounds normal, btw

    Question: can dragonfly red connect to amplifiers

    I would love to read some clarification on what would differ between, say, 1 ohm output impedance (headphone amp) vs 400 ohm output impedance (common line outs) when driving a separate amp. I can't find anything by googling (maybe I suck at googling). I know both sound fine, but I'm still...

    Question: can dragonfly red connect to amplifiers

    There is no such thing as a "dac only" mode. It still uses the amp section. The same amp section that would be used otherwise. But the max voltage is around the same as a fixed line out (2v), so it won't matter much for the external amp. The output impedance is different from a regular line out...

    To crossfeed or not to crossfeed? That is the question...

    71db and Pinnahertz are arguing since September 2017. It’s almost two and a half years. Consider that the average life expectancy in wealthy countries is about 90 years. That’s a considerable fraction of your lives

    To crossfeed or not to crossfeed? That is the question...

    (subjective insight): put early Black Sabbath material on the "better with crossfeed" list.

    To crossfeed or not to crossfeed? That is the question...

    I was thinking just that. In my case, I stumbled upon the term crossfeed about a month ago, reading an article about plugins for headphone mixers (specifically the CanOpener crossfeed). The topic grabbed my attention and made me abandon my faithful Spotify and start using Roon, just so I could...

    To crossfeed or not to crossfeed? That is the question...

    Thank you for the explanation. Indeed, the "1-15db feed value" on roon seems to be negative. When I set to "15" db, there is much less crossfeed applied than "1db". Black sabbath's first albums are so much better with xfeed! (i don't need to state that this is subjective evaluation, do I?)

    To crossfeed or not to crossfeed? That is the question...

    Could someone please indicate me a track that supposedly doesn’t “need” crossfeed, so I can see if, for my tastes, the crossfeed good or bad on it? According to Meier’s old article, crossfeed should be desirable even when there isn’t much stereo panning, because of fatigue.

    To crossfeed or not to crossfeed? That is the question...

    This is the implementation on roon: http://bs2b.sourceforge.net/ The custom settings lets you select Cut Frequency from 300 Hz to 2 KHz and "feed level" from 1 to 15 dB. Seems very flexible for a "mainstream" product!

    To crossfeed or not to crossfeed? That is the question...

    I have read almost half of this thread and used the search as well, but I haven’t found any opinions on Roon’s dsp crossfeed. Weird considering it’s popularity. It has a “default” setting based on something about Bauer (yeah, I’m that ignorant), cmoy and Meier presets and also custom. Works...

    Beyerdynamic T90 Discussion and Support Thread

    Wow, that's quite interesting. Until I get my hands on one of those, I'll try pairing them with my stereo integrated receiver (HK 3390). People say that these receivers have lots of output impedance, since the headphone outs are directly connected to the power amp circuitry. Don't know if it's...
