    Philips Fidelio L2

      The price difference between them is about a 100 dollars, though. I posted a question at the Amazon website inquiring as to why such a price difference exists, and someone answered it's because the more expensive "model" is "high-rez". When I read this kind of nonsense, my head hurts.

    Double post. Sorry.

    Beta testing the new Audeze Black-Box.

    Why not a crossfeed implementation?

    Better than the HD 598!? It must be a source compatibility issue.

    Review: Philips Fidelio L1 [Updated 5/14]

        Well, I use the Downtowns at work and they sound great for the money. Perhaps the Fidelios' price/performance ratio is not as good as the Citiscapes'.

    I've owned them for 10 years and totally love them!  :)

    The Sennheiser HD580 Impressions Thread

    After a decade of loyal service, I've replaced my HD580's drivers. Got the capsules from Custom Cable in the UK. Now they are ready for an additional decade of fantastic musical reproduction! Cheers to all!

      This makes no sense. The Citiscape line is a step below the Fidelios.

    Phillips Citiscape Downtown better than Uptown?

    AFAIK, they both feature the same anti-tangle cable. I've had no problems with the cable on my Downtowns.

    HeadRoom Total BitHead Headphone Amp / DAC or Fiio E10

    fcpchop88, You’ve owned the BitHead in the past and now you own the Fiio E10 for a little over a month. Do you still feel the BitHead is better? How are you enjoying the Fiio E10? You say crossfeed is pretty awesome. Do you mean there is a “wow” factor? Do you miss it a great deal when...

    HeadRoom Total BitHead Headphone Amp / DAC or Fiio E10

    tdockweiler, I’m afraid I don’t like the form factor of the Fiio E7/E17. I neither like the volume control buttons facing upwards nor the fact those devices hijack Window’s own volume control. I guess I’d feel drawn to that design if my primary need was portability. So, I take it that the...

    HeadRoom Total BitHead Headphone Amp / DAC or Fiio E10

    Thank you tdockweiler and fcpchop88 for the feedback! Sorry guys, for taking so long to reply. My vacations are over and I’m back in the salt mines, with little or no time for posting forum messages. Measurements indicate the BitHead DAC section has actual 14 bit performance...

    HeadRoom Total BitHead Headphone Amp / DAC or Fiio E10

    tdockweiler, thank you for the input! Very interesting. I see your experience is with the Airhead, not the Bithead, right? I do plan to use the USB at all times, though. Could the bass rolloff be inevitable, then? I also plan to use low impedance on-ear Philips Metro Downtown headphones, which...

    Antberg, I know you've started this thread over a year ago, but which did you choose anyways? Cheers!

    HeadRoom Total BitHead Headphone Amp / DAC or Fiio E10

    Dear Fellow Headfiers, Do any of you guys have anything to say in defense of the Total Bithead? Of it's "musicality"? Of it's Crossfeed feature? Has anyone found the Fiio E10 more fatiguing than the Bithead? I usually spend from four to eight hours a day listening to music at work, so fatigue...

    HeadRoom Total BitHead Headphone Amp / DAC or Fiio E10

    Greetings, fellow Headfiers! Like antberg, I hail from Brazil, where headphone amps are nearly impossible to find. I plan to order one from Headroom. I too am undecided between the latest iteration of the Headroom Total Bithead and the Fiio E 10. I need an amp/DAC combo to use at work, where I...

    Phillips Citiscape Downtown better than Uptown?

    Now, has anyone compared those to the Koss Porta Pros? Do the Porta Pros sound better, though without the isolation?

    Sennheiser HD 448 vs 280

    Optimus,   Quote:   To whom did you write the above message? I regard my HD 580s as very realistic, but I need some closed cans to use at work. The HD 448 seem atractive, but they are nowhere to be found down here. OTOH, the HD 280 Pro's are relatively easy to find, and so are the...

    Sennheiser HD 448 vs 280

    So, no one really knows how the 448 and 280 perform against each other?

    FLAC or Apple Lossless?

    I use Real Audio Lossless (.ra) 705Kbps. Sounds exactly like the CD to me. Real Player converts everything to MP3 when I download music to my phone. I've never tried the other formats.
