    Comparisons: 36 of the Top Closed/Portable Headphones Around

    Is the difference between the first and second gen big enough to warrant the second gen? This is mainly for the mids.

    Comparisons: 36 of the Top Closed/Portable Headphones Around

    Warm is fine, but they should be nothing like the M50x, after listening to an orchestra piece that had a part of cello/double bass plucking the strings, my head just felt dizzy. On the bright side I did notice less of coughing sound from the audience. lol!

    Comparisons: 36 of the Top Closed/Portable Headphones Around

    I am a classical music lover, recently I got M50x because of its portability and popularity, but to my disappointment the bass was too overwhelming, while the mids sounded a bit recessed. I like the neutral sound on my DT 660 (plus the mids have more detail and larger soundstage than the M50x)...

    Just Ordered the Hifiman HE-560's-Love My Senn. HD-650 and Hifiman 400i's-Am I Going to Like These the 560's?

    Tell us how the 560 compares with your HD650, I've also been thinking about those two headphones.

      Thank you for the comment. Yes, he prefers the sound from headphones to be as close to the instruments as possible.

    Best gear for listening to classical music...

    I have a friend who plays in a symphony orchestra and is looking for some advice on headphones. So how would you rank HD800, HD600 and HE560 for classical music? I understand the HD600 gives the most bang for the buck (like the recent $250 deal!), but how much improvement will the other two bring?

    Review: Violectric HPA V200 amp

    Has anyone listened to HE-560 or HE-6 through the V200/V100 amp? I am trying to decide between the Violectric and Burson soloist, please post your impression.

    = HiFiMAN HE-560 Impressions & Discussion Thread =

    Sweet! My source is Shiit Gungnir and I listen mostly to classical music. I was looking at EF-6 but wonder if anyone use RAGNAROK as the amp. Please let me know if you have any other musical amps to recommend too! Thanks!

    Would you guys consider the HE-560 to be a top contender for the best cans under $1000? HD800 is over my budget so I am looking at others.

    Stealth 6 vs A7x vs LSR305

    Has anyone heard some of them? I orginally set my eyes on the JBL LSR305, but since I listen to classical music, how much better will the Stealth 6 or the Adam A7x be? I know price wise JBL is not in the same league as the other two but it's something my budget can stretch too. If the difference...

    How to switch from analog setup to digital setup?

      That's a great question.    I am thinking that a sound bar would provide a better virtual surround than my current 2.0 setup (right now I use ffdshow audio decoder to create additional virtual channels), but that could just be my misconception.

    Speakers or monitors for audiophile experience?

    I want to build a 2.0 home theatre. Is it true that speakers like Adam F7 can beat pretty much any sound bar out there?

    Speakers or monitors for audiophile experience?

    Thanks for all the support here!  Right now I have Bx5a which I use for both music and movies, I want an upgrade but not sure if I would stick with studio monitors or so-called speakers (Hi-Fi was misleading so I won't use that term again), lol! I was considering Yamaha HS8 (really good at that...

    Better than BX5a for $700 or less?

    I have a pair of M-Audio BX5a, so far it's serving me good. But I am wondering for $700 or less what would be significantly better than that? The New M3-8?   p.s. Active speakers preferred. My DAC is Yulong D100, room size is 11' by 11'

    Review: Yulong D100 DAC/amp - reference quality with a reasonable price

    oh no! it looks like my laptop only supports 48k, so is USB better in my case?

    I have set upsampling to 192k in foobar, but I don't see any similar settings for Windows 7.

    I've been using D100 for movies like Dark Knight, LoTR and KungFu Panda. Everytime it was one helluva experience.

    HD 600 vs HD 650

    I used to have a HD580 and I could listen to them for hours and hours. I tried AKG 701 for a while, kinda liked its bigger soundstage but I found it a bit fatiguing. So later I sold the 701 and 580 was destroyed in a fire. I have had Beyer DT 235 for a year now. But recently I moved to an office...
