    What eq do you use for yours?

    Looking to upgrade from DT 1990 Pro - Focal Clear vs LCD-X. (Demoing them tomorrow) a few pre-listen / research questions:

    Agreed. Lcdx sounded better to me for the majority of songs I demoed, which were all metal/rock/edm. I'd imagine clear is better for more other genres

    Looking to upgrade from DT 1990 Pro - Focal Clear vs LCD-X. (Demoing them tomorrow) a few pre-listen / research questions:

    The place I went to demo actually didn't have the clear og, but had the clear mg instead. After demoing a few of the same songs on both (alternating back and forth between them), lcdx sounded overall better to me. At that point I was comfortable making my decision. Sure, it wasn't the og...

    LCD-X and XC Update

    Got my FR graph this morning. How does mine compare to most? I've found a few good EQs so far but I still can't seem to get set on something. Stock sounds really good too but I feel like it can definitely be improved with the right EQ that I haven't quite got there yet. Any ideas?

    Of course Beyer would have a reasoning for that with all their treble 😝

    I've used all my headphones with stock in the past, didn't like 1990 eq'd, but I'd be willing to use it if I got lcd-x

    Looking to upgrade from DT 1990 Pro - Focal Clear vs LCD-X. (Demoing them tomorrow) a few pre-listen / research questions:

    HD800 really has my eye, but isn't the frequency response similar to that of a Grado? I used an SR80i for ten years and liked it, but the lack of bass got really annoying at times.

    Looking to upgrade from DT 1990 Pro - Focal Clear vs LCD-X. (Demoing them tomorrow) a few pre-listen / research questions:

    About me: I LOVE energetic music. Listen to about 85% metal, the rest rock/alt/EDM. Some guilty pleasure pop here and there. As for my metal, it's a mix of new/old stuff, but the old stuff I love often isn't exceptionally well recorded. Older Metallica, Megadeth, Testament, Slayer, etc. I got...

    Looking for the best open-ear setup for under/around 500. (mostly listen to metal)

    Update: listened to a build from a friend of a friend (he's great) - I made my decision. Thanks everyone for the help!

    Looking for the best open-ear setup for under/around 500. (mostly listen to metal)

    After doing even more research, I was leaning slightly in favor of the sundara, but now the 1990 pro really has my eye. Sure, it's 600, but I can bend the budget a tad. Two main questions: 1. Is that pair a significant upgrade over the sundara / HD6-series? 2. How much should I realistically...

    Looking for the best open-ear setup for under/around 500. (mostly listen to metal)

    I don't mind spending a few to get a nice amp for the 6XX

    Looking for the best open-ear setup for under/around 500. (mostly listen to metal)

    Thank you again. After reading this description I think I prefer warm over cold. I think it comes down to 6xx vs sundara at this point for me. From what I hear (and the way the pads on it look), the Sundara will be uncomfortable on my ears (I have a large head + big ears) which I'm not a fan...

    Looking for the best open-ear setup for under/around 500. (mostly listen to metal)

    After getting a Sennheiser HD1 (wired) in 2017 and putting my SR80i away ever since, I finally knocked the dust off of it for the first time today and forgot how much I LOVED these headphones. After 2 hours I immediately remembered how uncomfortable these things are (even with the replacement...

    Recommendations for a pair of portable cans at / under $300?

    Also: I know the BeoPlay H6 are priced at $300, but this link (https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00VIPJCOG/ref=dp_olp_0?ie=UTF8&condition=all&qid=1480122341&sr=8-9) has them listed at under $200, so I'm assuming this is for the 1st generation?

    Recommendations for a pair of portable cans at / under $300?

    Hi there,   Trying to get the most value out of the best price. I don't want to go anywhere above $250-300 here.   I've had the V-Moda M-80 for over 4 years now, and they're wearing out. They've been pretty great, although I've always wanted something better to use.    It's time for an...

    Grado L-Cush pads

    Unamped Grado SR80i on PC, full volume, too loud?

    Just asking for anyone else who has similar headphones, is listening to them on full volume on PC OK? Mine is unamped, and honestly I don't find it that loud (then again, I do have a slight hearing loss).  Is it safe to listen that loud?

    Where to buy VMODAS ONLINE?

    Quote: I got my M-80 on Amazon for $160 with free one day shipping. Only downside with Amazon is that you can't customize shield colors, as you can only choose between white and black headphones.

    Everything I need to know about headphone volume levels?

    So, I've got a pair of M-80s, and was wondering the following things: 1. Does playing on maximum volume harm the cans, long-term?   2. Are my ears safe if I use this pair on max, or should I probably reduce the volume? 3. What is the best volume for audio quality (for good sound /...
