    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

      maybe you have very tolerant coworkers    they leak.  IMO, alot.  which was his concern.  i dont think its really debatable, as everyone seemingly is in agreement that they leak...the degree to which that leakage is tolerable may vary.

    so was waiitng out on hd800 for the S version...so is it worth buying?

    OR you can grab a used one on the classifieds and mod it to taste.  there is no plastic ring on earth they could have jammed in there that can justify what is realistically double the price.  Take the discount on the regulars IMO.

    The Official Grado 325i Owners Club.

      well I havent had the IS's that long yet, but i think i prefer them.  there's nothing harsh or fatiguing anymore.  they seem more balanced than before.  I often found myself EQing the I's just to soften it out because it was SHARP as much as i loved them.  I couldnt imagine the e's if they...

    The Official Grado 325i Owners Club.

    So I had a set of I's.....and they were every bit as sharp and high as everyone said.  but i loved them anyways, and sold them to try other things.   just picked up a set of IS's because i missed my grados, and theyre not anywhere NEAR the highs that the I's were.  so either the IS's really...

    Grado Fan Club!

    thanks for that.  seems people think that the ps5000 got away from the grado sound more than most of their others, so i was a little concerned on that end.  and yea, the gh-1's are out of the question at this point (unless i can find an absolute steal used i guess).  i do love maple in my drum...

      +1   comparing the two the past few days, the HE500's take it by a fair margin IMO

    The Official Grado 325e Owners Club!

    I think you guys just rekindled my love for my 325. I dont know if it tamed the highs so much as balanced the lows, but it sounds incredible. Electrical tape! Who knew!?

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

      maybe im a cynic, but has he ever disliked a headphone?  i watched a few of his vids, and he seems like he generally is a fan of all of them.  including the mad dogs he says the thx00 makes look incompetent.  seems pretty knowledgeable though.  just sayin...

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    has anyone been able to compare the thx00's to the fidelio x1's or 2's?  im seriously debating getting into the drop if it reopens on monday.  have the x1's, love them, but have an itch to try something new.

    Fiio e17 crashing windows 8.1

    So I know I'm not alone in this but I've yet to see a solution for it. I've been using my fiio fine for several years with my windows 7 machine. My new machine is unfortunately now windows 8.1 and nothing but again in my ass. Plug in the e17 via usb and it will eventually hard crash. Has anyone...

    The hate on beats, why?

      it sounds like you guys are surrounded by cartoon characters.  lol.     honestly, what did you expect though?  he dropped 300 big on these headphones, and you're intent to is to essentially show him he wasted his money.  people tend to get wonky like that.     Id be lucky to find someone...

    The hate on beats, why?

      please dont mistake my posting about for caring.  i dont care, and im certainly not "bothered". lol   i find this thread ; and the overall hatred of beats interesting.  especially because most of the issue seems to be taken with other people not getting value for money or other brands not...

    The hate on beats, why?

      and why does this bother any of you?  dont buy them then and be done with it :/ you guys are really bothered over sennheisers shelf space?   honestly, i wonder how many things you guys buy that get everyone else riled up because the value doesnt add up to them?     i hope you guys dont...

    The hate on beats, why?

    despite the hate on  beats, theyve managed some positive.  theyve gotten full sized headphones out of your dad's basement and into the public sphere.  theyve made it known that there can be headphones out there better than earbuds.  theyve gotten people used to the idea of dropping 300 on...

    d2000 crackling?

    thanks for the link.   so i tested them through the range, and there's no crackling.  so thats good.  i suppose that means it is the tracks then.  the noise didnt seem random, and was being reproduced each listen.  so that makes some sense.   i have a shure 840, but havent found the time...

    Non-audiophile reactions to high-end headphones
