    Replacement cable for HE-500?

    I have a pair of HE-500's that are still going strong. The cable I'm currently using, frankly it's annoyingly stiff and I'm looking for a replacement. I had been looking to see if Q-Audio cables were still a thing (I have one on my LCD-2's) but it seems that business folded suddenly last year...

    Need a new $1,000 CIEM recommendation

    I'm in the market for new CIEMs and was wondering what people thought of my options. Right now the possible lead contender is the JH Audio 16pro. My last CIEM was the 13pro and the Noble 4c before that. I currently own the Heir Audio 8.a and used to own the Heir Audio 4.a. In general, here were...

    Android HD audio playback issue, any suggestions?

    I'm kind of new to Android and so far the biggest pain-point has been pretty much anything to do with audio playback... I'm an iOS convert so almost all of my music is ALAC, including several albums I have that are 24/96. I tried PowerAmp (seemed to be the most recommended audio app out there)...

    CIEM that sounds like the HE-500?

    I have a pair of HE-500's for home use and they are, to my ears, perfect. They are exactly the sound I love... But I can't take them wherever I go! As a sort of exploratory question (aren't those the most dangerous, financially?) I was wondering what CIEM comes closest to the HE-500 in terms of...

    Office headphone recommendations?

    I'm considering getting a pair of headphones to leave at the office. I keep forgetting my normal IEMs and the result is a day like today: No music. My budget is less than $350 for these, since they won't be my main headphones. I currently have an HE-500 (sits at home) and my Heir Audio 8.A's. I...

    Relatively in-expensive closed-back full-sized headphone recommendations?

    I want to get my girlfriend a nice pair of headphones for Christmas. However, unlike me, she's not an audiophile. She does encourage me, though. Which is awesome, haha!   So what I'm looking for is a full-sized, closed-backed headphone that sounds good directly out of a laptop or iPhone...

    Looking to build a new neutral rig for home listening, could use recommendations

    My current setup is a set of Denon AH-D2000's, some Heir Audio 4.A's and a Leckerton UHA-6S MKII. Listening is done through my iMac with mostly lossless audio or 256+ AACs. My music tastes tend to the rock, jazz or soundtracks, but I listen to pretty much everything to some degree.   I love...

    Hanging vinyl album artwork?

    I'm starting to buy albums and I don't want to just stack them somewhere on a shelf. I really want to put them up on my walls so I was thinking about getting a sort of grid frame. Does anyone know of any good systems that are worth looking into?   I did debate just going to the hardware...

    Denon AH-D2000 repair or replace

    So my Denon AH-D2000 have started acting up. Basically, there appears to be a loose wire in the headphone plug that causes audio to cut out for the right channel. The headphones are less than a year old (coming up in December) but I'm having a hell of a time finding out if I'm covered under the...

    Stand-alone microphone recommendations?

    There are a couple people on these forums who are gamers so I figure at least one of them has come up against my problem: I love my headphones for gaming but the build-in microphone on my computer sucks. It picks up echo like there's no tomorrow.   So what I'd like is few recommendations as...

    A couple suggestions for improved usability

    Hello fellow head-fiers. I brought some of these up in another thread and it was recommended I make a list here so here, as it were, is my list:   1. Use "mega-menus" instead of "tiered menus". This is probably the biggest one. Mostly, because tired menus are horrible for usability. Stray...

    AMP/DAC for Denon AH-D2000?

    I know, another thread about an AMP/DAC fro the Denon AH-D2000's. Thing is, I have some questions that weren't answered elsewhere.   Before I jump in with my questions and requests, this is the setup anything I purchase will be going in to. Basically, they are mostly used while I'm sitting...
