    SONY NW-ZX500

    Actually a buddy of mine whos a wiz with android OS stuff. Told me if you go into apps & notifications > google > disable. then re-start the device. it should be gone and the "default" system search will be displayed. and tbh its way nicer and less distracting :)

    Astell&Kern Launches KANN ALPHA Digital Audio Player

    I dont run IEMs, so that wont be an issue. i think my "portable" drivers are the B&O H6(Gen2) and Sony 7506. which the A&K SR15 was able to drive at around 60-70 volume. I'm assuming the Alpha Kann can easily drive them at a much lower volume? maybe 30-40 ?

    SONY NW-ZX500

    is the ZX507 powerful enough through BE to drive the Sony Z7m2? im a bit worried that it wont be, despite the images shown on the website of the z7m2 being plugged into it.

    B&O H9 Discussion and Impressions thread

    800$ USD is quite steep for a B&O can, id rather get the Focal Elegia at that point. i do love my H6gen2 but wished they brought another H6gen3 with the 95s look. would be awesome. i use a Dap regardless for my music and never use my mobile. so wired for me would be ok, however wireless also...

    Sony MDR-Z7M2 Headphone Thread

    So, i spent the last year deciding between the Audeze LCD-X and Hifiman Arya... in the end i bought the Sony Z7m2 and i dont regret it. they're fantastic! I know many people here and on audio discord discussion threads will say the sonys are rubbish but honestly, they're really not.I really do...

    Looking for successor for HD600/HD6XX – Auditioned LCD -X vs. HD800 vs. Arya vs. Ananda vs. SR L300 vs. SR L500

    honestly i think you should split your budget for a better amp/source + new headphones. instead of investing the entire lot on a pair of headphones only. That being said, it sounds like maybe a Focal Clear would be better suited for your taste.

    1 week review of Sony NW-ZX507 (NW-ZX500 Series)

    Question, I am considering the ZX-507, having the SR15 has been an interesting journey but i find that all astell and kern DAPs are more focused on an IEM front. Reading that you were able to run the DT1990 Pro.. gave me hope as thoes are currently my most power hungry headphones. I'm...

    Headphones for female vocals?

    I actually liked female vocals on the sony z7m2, dt1990 pro and on my b&oh6(gen2). I tried female vocals on a hifiman arya and they were pretty good too.

    ??? well we have but the k371 arent for outside use. its legit made for indoor use at a desk or something. i took them outside once, and they have like 0 isolation for a closed back. terrible.

    Sony MDR-Z7M2 Headphone Thread

    they both dont have amazing sound isolation. the Z1R from memory(demo'd in a store) is more... "semi-open" its not a closed back by any means. it has a very very laid back sound, warm, smooth, thick. but its quite expensive. the Z7m2 has better closed back design but also, feels semi-open due...
