    6.3 to 3.5 adapter recommendations

    Thanks guys! Got it and like it, although it does come unplugged easier than I wanted, bit it beats the hell out of those cheap ones I had.

    *Official Schiit Magni/Modi 2 ( Uber ) Thread*

    I've decided to purchase the Magni 2 U and Modi 2 U for my incoming TH-X00's.     Where's the best place to purchase them from?  Should I just buy them straight from the schiit.com website?  (I live in the US)

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    I'm just going to assume I won't be able to tell a sound quality difference between whatever combo of Magni Uber, Modi Uber, O2, and ODAC I end up choosing.  Taking into consideration that all the options I've listed here are considered mostly "neutral" and "transparent", and seeing how the...

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    So I read a review that said he thought the modi was "neutral to lean" and that the Magni was "a good reference for a neutral amp".  So that raises the question of Magni Uber + ODAC; would that work?       In your own personal opinions, if your only pair of headphones were the Fostex TH-0XX's...

    O2 AMP + ODAC

      What's your opinion about the pros and cons of the Modi 2 + O2 vs. the Schiit stack vs. the O2+ODAC combo for my situation?   (I'm not worried about price)

    O2 AMP + ODAC

      The only headphones I have are the ATH-AD700's and the ATH-AD900X's, and the TH-0XX's I have ordered.  And I have no idea how to use correctly use equalizers.       Is the Schiit Magni/Modi 2 Uber stack considered "neutral" sounding?  I don't currently have any external amp or DAC, so for...

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    Does the standalone O2 run only on battery power?  And if so, is the disadvantage with it being battery powered and not AC is that the battery powered version would have lower supply voltage, thus making the O2+ODAC combo superior in terms of maximum output power?     I don't have any amps or...

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Just ordered a pair.  I've been seriously considering purchasing the TH-900 for ~ 2 years now.  Got really serious about it a year ago, and then decided the TH-900 had been out for so long that they might release an updated version soon.  So I waited even longer until I heard about the new mods...

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    Which company's version of the O2/ODAC do you guys prefer?  I did extensive research on the O2/ODAC a couple years ago, and I think I was going to go with JDS Labs, but since time has passed I was wondering if anything has changed that I should know about?     Just purchased the Fostex TH-0XX...

    TH-900 vs ATH-900X

    Does anyone have these two cans?  What should I expect in different?  I have plenty of experience with AD900X.  What should I ve taken back by?  What should should different?  Are the TH-900's as bright as the AD900X's?   Also, will the TH-900's be able to completely take over the AD900X, for...

    Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread

    So I'm purchasing the TH-900's soon and want to know, is it possible to lay down while listening to these, or would it mess up the ear-pads?     I'll be transitioning from ATH-AD900X's to the TH-900's and was curious if anyone here knows what I should expect.  Will the TH-900's completely make...

    O2 AMP + ODAC

      @thecrow   Little confused about the sentence, "Having said that....I have found, for me, the odac is a fair/ok dac for its price but the O2 is a great neutral/transparent dac well priced too. I'd recommend it to my own mother easily." You said the O2 is a great neutral/transparent DAC...

    Purchasing an O2, ODAC, and TH-900s. Currently use ATH-AD900X and onboard sound. Need advice please and thanks.

    @PurpleAngel  -  Awesome, man, thanks for the responses and help.     I think I'm going to get the O2 and ODAC standalone units and the TH-900.  I think I'll get the 6.35mm headphone jack output on the O2 and the RCA line-outputs on my ODAC.  I don't think I'll be using my AD900X's much...

    Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread

    Thanks again, Sonic and earthpeople, you guys have been fabulous.  I'll contact JDS Labs about the gain, but I really love/appreciate reading y'alls opinions on the matter(s).     @up late - That is what I was originally going to get, but a couple of people said it would be better to get...

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    I currently use ATH-AD900X's for everything.  Don't have any other headphones.  I'm going to purchase a O2+ODAC today for my PC.  Questions:   1. Where should I buy it or does it matter?   2.  Was looking at JDS Labs website and there are different customizable options:   Rear mounted vs...

    Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread

    I've been wanting a pair of TH900's for a long time now, but I feel like I've waited too long, as Fostex might be coming out with an "upgrade" perhaps sometime soon?  Does anyone know if they have any plans on releasing a comparable or potentially better version of the TH900's, or should I just...

    The ATH-AD900 Thread

    Thanks for the info CAMCAM, and I've also read the X has more bass, but I haven't tried a direct comparison.   From the way you talk though about yours, I have a feeling the X has a little more bass.   Perfect amount of bass for http://youtu.be/mYKLvYGqaC0   Watch in 720p for best sound...

    Audeze LCD-3 vs Fostex TH-900?

    I see quite a few people still posting about having to RMA their LCD-3's because of failed drivers.  And of course there was the "veiled" issue and issues with balance.     Do the TH-900's not have similar problems?

    Audeze LCD-3 vs Fostex TH-900?

    Quote:   Doesn't adding non-neutral amps and DAC's make the headphone "something it's not"?     I would personally never EQ just because I do not have the patience to do something that meticulous, but I'm still interested to know if there is any type of coloration an amp or DAC can...

    Resonessence Labs Concero discussion/review thead

    Quote:   Thanks for the response.     I assume the HP will keep the same house signature of the original, which I read way back in this thread is pretty neutral.     I suppose I'll just have to wait for more reviews.    Thanks again.

    Resonessence Labs Concero discussion/review thead

    Could someone elaborate on the differences between the HD vs. the HP?    The HP is an amp and DAC and the HD is just a DAC, correct?  So why are they the same price?  Is the HD a better DAC than what the HP has?     Also, can anyone compare the HP to the O2+ODAC (technically...
