    New Head-Fi Update

    A few complaints about the new editor... It's missing a proper "edit source" to use html for complex formatting. BBCode is weaksauce. The textarea isn't freely resizable and its auto-resize seems flaky.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

      The Groove's current drive is going to add some extra bass to both of those Senns which you may or may not like.  OTOH, at the price of that bundle you could always sell the Grove if you don't like and not loose any money on the deal.

    Stax SR-009: Best Headphone Ever Made? - Head-Fi TV, Episode 008

      You will need speaker amp between the Phonitor 2 and the Woo WEE.   The Woo WEE is an just an adapter that goes between a speaker amp and a Stax electrostatic headphone.  The Woo WEE is not an amplifier itself.  The Phonitor 2 will not be strong enough to power the Woo itself either...

    hfb - Bounce House - chat aka shtpost central

      Damn "console" exclusives.   I'm still waiting for them to die or go back to actually being consoles instead of low end PCs.

    KOSS ESP-950 Thread

      I'm not aware of any.   If you're up for a little DIY you could make some yourself though.  I've had good results with Ultrasuede and memory foam pads I've made for my Lambdas.

    Mid-fi Challenger: Phillips Fidelio X2 Vs. Sennheiser HD650

    I heard the X2 briefly at a recent meet and was initially very impressed.  They seemed to have a nice relaxed sound and I thought they’d make a good pair of “rainy day” headphones to use when it was too humid to power up my Stax (or my hair’s just wet from the shower) so I obtained a pair for a...

      Very interesting.  I hope They tighten up the QC as well while they're at it.

    Official HIFIMAN HE1000 Impressions Thread

      That matches pretty well with my opinion of the HEKs.  After spending some time with them at a couple of meets I decided I preferred my Lambda normal bias.   Although it's heresy around here, I'd say that the main advantage of the HEK is that it gets you fairly close to the sound of a 'stat...

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

      Grados are about the farthest thing from flat that is somehow still considered hifi.  IMO the HD700 already sounds like a much cleaner Grado.  Besides all that, there are tons of headphones with are much flatter than the HD700 but still have great soundstage.   In headphones, basic changes...

    MQA: Revolutionary British streaming technology

      You might want to rethink that logic a little bit...   Since it's also impossible to compare 2 sounds by playing them at the the same time, that only leaves memory.  If memory is also invalid for comparisons then there's no way left for humans to compare any sounds at all.  Therefore it's...

    what is the best portable music player to have?

    Maybe if you could come up with a better argument than "Price=Performance" you wouldn't look like a troll.
