    Apple AirPods Pro And NEW AirPods Pro 2nd Gen (from 23 Sep 2022) - Impressions

    This is interesting. Soundwise, I like the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 better. The fit is also more secure because it has fins that you can attach. But the APP 2 has better software (3D audio, switching between different devices and much better transparency mode). Guess there is no...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    I personally like the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 for sports. The added fins makes sure it stays in my ears. The Apple Airpods Pro 2 is quite nice too. But the fit is not as secure as the Sennheiser’s, so Sennheiser is still #1 for me. Sony is crap though. These things fly out of my...

    Focal Utopia 2022 Review, Measurements

    Why did the price increase to $5000? These headphones are produced in France and since the Euro is worth crap and continues to loose value against the major currencies, it should actually be cheaper. Focal is getting greedy charging us more while their own currency is loosing value like crazy...

    Anyone else getting tired seeing so many different Focal Utopia threads?

    The amount of Focal Utopia threads is too damn high.

    Dan Clark Audio Stealth Review, Interview, Measurements

    My ears only touch the inside with the following headphones: - Sony WH-1000XM1 - Sony WH-1000XM2 - Sony WH-1000XM3 - Sony WH-1000XM4 - Sony WH-1000XM5 - Sennheiser Momentum 4 - $4000 Stealth The problem is not my ears, the problem is that the Stealth has the same design flaw as some cheap ass...

    Focal Utopia 2022 Review, Measurements

They are cheap...

    Dan Clark Audio Stealth Review, Interview, Measurements

    So I got my hands on these Stealth as I was interested in it as an office headphone since it is so hyped up. What a total piece of trash. My ears touch the inside of this headphone like some cheap ass $300 Sony WH-1000XM5 bluetooth headphone. How is this even possible on a $4000 headphone? This...

    Focal Utopia 2022 Review, Measurements

    Well, I got my hands on the Stealth and the Utopia 2022. Must say the Stealth is an overhyped piece of crap. How can a $4000 headphone not have enough room for ears as my ears touch the inside of the headphone. This only happens on $300 ANC headphones from Sony usually. This is an automatic...

    Introducing MOMENTUM 4 Wireless

    I didn't try the app to fix the MW4 with EQ as I wasn't interested anymore in them due to my ears touching the inside of the headphone, just like my Sony's do. But then it will be more in line with how the APM and the HD 650 sounds. I did the same with my Sony's and it is much better when you...

    Introducing MOMENTUM 4 Wireless

    I have both the Sennheiser HD 650 and Apple AirPods Max and they are pretty close. The Apple AirPods Max has more bass and a bit less treble with a scoop in the mids. But they are not far off from each other. So really, the Apple AirPods Max cannot be bad. What you are saying is that one of...

    Introducing MOMENTUM 4 Wireless

    Probably the Sennheiser HD 800S is the most comfortable headphone.

    Introducing MOMENTUM 4 Wireless

    Btw, I'm just providing feedback so that problems like these gets avoided with the Momentum 5 next year. Because there not a chance I am buying these headphones. I was interested in replacing my Apple AirPods Max due to comfort issues, only for both Sony (not a surprise, they do this every...

    Introducing MOMENTUM 4 Wireless

    The Sennheiser MW4 plays at the level of Sony, not at the level of the Apple AirPods Max. It's a different class of ANC headphone. I was interested to replace the Apple AirPods Max with these headphones from Sennheiser, yeah ..... that was clearly not going to happen.

    Dan Clark Audio Stealth Review, Interview, Measurements

    Dude, how can you listen to these headphones using that? You need atleast a nuclear fusion reactor powered headphone amplifier that delivers 1.21 gigawatts for these headphones man.

    Introducing MOMENTUM 4 Wireless

    It's not just about the depth, it is in combination with the super soft pads which causes the problem. People with small heads will less likely have this problem as the pressure will be lower and thus causes the pads to compress less. But it is a design flaw. There are only a few headphones...

    Introducing MOMENTUM 4 Wireless

    Very disappointing headphone. I had such high hopes after they recently launched their amazing Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3, which is arguably the best bluetooth in-ear on the market. I guess Sennheiser looked at Sony and basically tried to copy them, including all the wrong things. Even...

    For those of us with multiple headphones, which ones are you listening with now?

    Focal Clear with a custom cable I created myself to lift the bass a bit and reduce the treble. But it lost a bit of "air" I think, so maybe I will make a few changes to it.

    MacBook Pro M1 Pro/Max - 3.5mm output

    Haha yes. I had the Chord Mojo 2 for testing and the 16" M1 Max MacBook Pro sounded better. I was laughing my ass off. So I didn't buy the Mojo 2 obviously. I never liked the Mojo line-up soundwise, so I guess it was not a surprise that I didn't like the Mojo 2 either.

    Dan Clark Audio Stealth Review, Interview, Measurements

    I have not read all 300 pages, but can't you simply use a $500 Chord Mojo to drive this thing? It works for the AFC 2 Noire, so I would be quite surprised if the Chord Mojo is "too weak" for the Stealth.

    Focal Utopia General Discussion

    Maybe people should stop using amplifiers with the Focal Utopia? I honestly have not experienced any reliability issues, but then again, I only used straight out of a Chord Dave and not a Fusion reactor. Even my 16” M1 Max MacBook Pro ”drives” the Focal Utopia just fine. Yes, just a laptop.

    New Tour! MOMENTUM 4 Wireless

    So let’s see if these can replace the Apple AirPods Max which I don’t like due to it’s too strong clamp force. I don’t know how Sony managed to do it, but they made their WH-1000XM5 less comfortable than the Apple AirPods Max due to a pain spot on top my head and my ears touching the inside of...

    Focal Utopia General Discussion

    I actually did a funny test. I took all the TOTL headphones, including $50.000 ones (like the Hifiman Shrang-La or whatever it is called), Hifiman Susvara on Hifiman their own $14.000 headphone amplifier, SR-009 on Stax their own TOTL amplifier, and so …. and compared to the TOTL Focal Utopia...
