    Hi guys. Ever since I scaled down my audio rig I have not posted here for years, but my HD590 which I use for my PC and movies is dead and the cheapo HD201 I got as its replacement is killing me.

    Why block the asking price when phones are sold?

    If I have time or if I can remember to do it, I usually delete the price after I have sold the item so that the buyer can price the item whatever he wants when he decides to sell it later.

In my case, having a power conitioner and getting a dedicated line for my audio equipment didnt help out, so im assuming I have relatively clean...

    All this amplifying of headphones degrade the sound quality and the life time?

    Using headphones with amps will actually increase the life of your cans. If you listen to your headphones unamped and you want your music loud, chances are you are listening to your headphones with some sort of distortion and if done for long periods of time, this is very harmful for your...
