    2015 Southeastern Michigan Fall Meet - Impressions

    I'm so bummed I couldn't attend this event. And it was close to me too! Is there any appetite for having these on a Sunday? My Saturdays are generally too busy and I'd love to attend one. Looks like a good time. Thanks

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    I'm guessing he meant an external dac as opposed to the one built into the source device.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    I know it and I completely agree with it. I just wanted to point out that it's not absolute. :D It becomes extra sad when there are a lot of folks who love their HD650 or whatever, but head-fi messed with their head because they read 'dozens or hundreds of times' that they had to have an...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

      This is the kind of oft-repeated head-fi-ism that is not absolute. It is sometimes true, and sometimes not true. It depends on the particular computer and its hardware sound configuration.     That totally depends on the implementation of the dac inside the PC. ...Just sayin' ;)   I'm...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Well, nobody can tell you what sounds good to you, so you correctly need an additional device to drive them properly in a way that appeals to you. It isn't nonsense though. I've used my HD650 with iPhones, iPads, Microsoft Surfaces, Dell workstations, HP workstations, a 20 year-old A/V receiver...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    I recently entered the HD650 camp after years of using other cans including the HD555. I was nervous about a number of items because of what I read here at head-fi. Statements such as (I'm paraphrasing): The HD650 are 300ohms, so you won't get any sound out of an iPhone. If you manage to get...

    Here's one that I scanned from a comic book if you're into that sort of thing (I am). I tweaked it a bit and added the full artist and copyright info. Click on the image for the full size 1680x1050 version:

    help with mountain biking rig

    I mountain bike on a very regular basis, and in my experience, you do NOT want to be totally isolated from the environment. The audio cues fed into your brain help out the rider much more than one would realize, and being totally isolated doesn't bode well for people needing to pass, be passed...

    The $5.50 headphone amp ...and some questions.

    Not bad for your first post!!! So what you're saying is, that with the correct resistor, I could reduce the hiss and have a higher quality headphone out than the stock headphone jack on the front of the receiver, correct?

    Hey elmer dudd, that is some funny stuffs you posted there! I like the part about the snakes the best! and about the jogging comment, I jog with my receiver all of the time. It's not that cumbersome, although I get strange looks when people see the 10,000 foot orange extension cord leading to...
