    Ear Bud Recommendations

    The SoundMAGIC E10 sound great with my portable amp. They seem harder to drive on my Note8 when on a noisy bus. Any suggestions for easier to drive earbuds? Possibly even noise canceling? Budget can be higher considering noise canceling.

    Ear Bud Recommendations

    Thanks! I tried using my spares from my JayBird X2's but they didn't fit. I do a little digging for 400's.

    Ear Bud Recommendations

    I picked up the SoundMAGIC E10s. How can I figure out the size of ear tip replacements? I have fairly large ear canals so the large seem to fit ok. I'd like to check other tips if possible?

    Ear Bud Recommendations

    I have number of over the ear headphones (Beyer COP, DT990 Pro, AT M50, & Sony MDR1000X), but need some in ear headphones for work and my commute. What are your recommendations for inexpensive options (under $50) and higher end options ($150). I won't be using a portable amp. I'll be...

    Open Back Headphones for gaming

    Interesting. I don't thing of that. I figured open back would keep your ears from getting too hot.

    Open Back Headphones for gaming

    I am looking for comfortable open back headphones for gaming. I have a mic (AntLion ModMic) that can be attached so the design would need to allow for a small magnet to be attached to the side. Recommendations would be appreciated. Hoping to find something under $200. Thanks!

    CAL! 2 vs ATH-M50x vs HD25-1 II

    I own a pair of CALs and they are very comfortable, but mine had a buzz around 30hz and are no longer under warranty.  The CALs are extremely light but had a good sound.  I purchased a pair of V-MODA Crossfade LP which are built much better.  I haven't compared them to the CALs since they have...

    AMP/DAC Recommendations for DT990 Pros

    I just got the DT990 Pros a few weeks ago so swapping them out is not an option.  I like how they sound and enjoy the open style.  I already have a pair of closed headphones that are 32 Ohm.   Thanks!

    Looking for an all-round headphone

    Your list was a good start.  I haven't heard them, but I'd also include the DT770s.

    Looking for an all-round headphone

    Consider the DT990 Pro if you have an amp.  I got mine for $150 new.

    Looking for an all-round headphone

    Are you only considering closed headphones?  I currently own the Custom One Pros.  They are a very fun headphone that sounds well with all sorts of music types.  I just went from electronic music to Rush and they sound nice with both.  They are also very easy to drive.  Their build construction...

    Magni/Modi vs. O2/ODAC for DT 990-250?

    I'd be curious to comments on this as well.  Looking to upgrade my E17 after the holidays!

    AMP/DAC for DT 990

    True, but I will probably upgrade from the DT990s at some point so a higher quality DAC/AMP will be put to good use :) The main downside of the DT990s thus far is that they've opened my ears up to a step up in sound so that means my wallet will be opening up as well.

    AMP/DAC for DT 990

    I to would like to hear some suggestions for a DAC/AMP combo in the $300 - $500 price range.  I currently have the FiiO E17 but would like a desktop version.  I thought of getting the FiiO E09k but may not always have the E17.  I am open to either solid state or tubes.  I listen to mainly...

    DT880 vs DT990 for rock/metal?

    I just got the DT990s and so far really like them.  They are extremely comfortable.  I haven't been too critical of the sound since they haven't really broken in yet.  What I do notice compared to my Custom One Pros is that they have more extended treble and better sense of air in the sound...

    Peachtree decco65 Amplifier

    Has anyone listened to the Peachtree decco65 Amp? Its more than just a dedicated headphone amp and reasonably priced.  I don't need the full amp for speakers but its a nice option if I ever wanted to hook up my Wharfedale Diamond 10.1's.

    DT990 Pro Impressions Thread

    From my experience in the high end home audio arena, one of the things you watch out for was poor quality amplifiers.  They may have the same rated watts per channel, but the distortion and ability to keep the drivers under control at higher volumes could lead to damage.  This may not apply to...

    DT990 Pro Impressions Thread

    Just use common sense.  One thing I'd add, don't over drive your headphones, especially with lower quality source devices (iphone).  Higher quality amplification can provide cleaner and more controlled power.

    DT990 Pro Impressions Thread

    Do you care to share with us what differences you heard between the two?  Were you tempted to get the Premium version by any chance?  BTW, how does your O2 match up with it in comparison.  I hope to get my DT990 Pros this week.
