    Is it true that modded T50RP's (specifically LFF's Paradox mod) is comparable to high end headphones such as the LCD2?

    Winamp or Media Monkey?

    I find iTunes to be very slow and not conducive to editing / categorizing classical music.  Mediamonkey works out of the box, so that's good enough for me.   I've played with foobar, and like it for playback, but it also is not great for editing / categorizing classical music.   Just my...

    What happens when. . .

    After using this highly modified K701, I can report back that the sound improvements are out of this world.  The purple soft headband not only helps to improve overall comfort, but the the soft cushion helps the brain to retain those low-level audio signals, thus improving the overall depth and...

    Winamp or Media Monkey?

      Quote: Yes - but it depends on the parameters selected.  For example, secure ripping will always be slower than a single pass rip.
