    Sennheiser HD820

    No it’s not that power hungry. I can power it off everything I own including a Sony WM1A and even a few iPhone dongle DACs and even an iPod touch! It does perform better with a good amp.

    Earbuds Round-Up

    I know this is a strange question… but are there any high quality earbuds that are warm and don’t leak sound. I prefer the comfort and fit of earbuds but want no leakage.

    Cool. When you say the Utopia 2022 had great kick…do you mean more dynamic bass slam than the original? Also how was the soundstage on the 2022? Thanks. Glad you enjoyed the show and confirmed a good purchase. When you say the Utopia 2022 fixed lots of things…can you explain in more detail...

    Focal Utopia 2022 Review, Measurements

    It’s not fair to assume that just because an individual doesn’t agree with you and is excited about any product that they are disingenuous. Tyll was great but even he got excited about updates to headphones. No headphone is “necessary” these are all subjective luxuries. Buy it or don’t buy it.

    Focal Utopia 2022 Review, Measurements

    I wonder how dynamics/slam compare to the original especially considering that they supposedly widened soundstage and boosted the low end?

    Official Sony DMP-Z1 Thread

    I agree. Also do you notice that this approach to target Harmon is for younger listeners that don’t typically spend money on a lot of hi-fi. The bulk of collectors that I know are older and are looking for multiple products that are unique and tuned differently; if everything is tuned the same...
