    Audio Technica Upgrading Product Lines?

    I'm unaware of any new products, either. And even beyond mid level, the past 4 years or so has seen a lot of new high end products from many of the other big name manufacturers. Sennheiser has had the HD800s and HD700s, Beyerdynamic released the T1 and the T5p and others, Audez'e's LCD2 and 3...

    Most ridiculous album ever

    Quote: This just reminded me of a quote: I'm addicted to placebos. I'd stop taking them, but it wouldn't matter.

    Rate The Last Movie You Watched

    I went to see Drive tonight, I was very pleasantly surprised. Honestly, it felt a little like Taxi Driver to me at times, which is by no means a complaint. I had never really given Ryan Gosling any thought, but I felt he did a spectacular job in that movie. Honestly, I'd give it a solid...

    Real Hip Hop recommendations!

    I've never been a huge Hip hop person, but there are certain artists that I've liked a lot over the years. That being said, I have to throw a pitch in for Blue Scholars. Their most recent album, Cinemetropolis, is the first hip hop album that I have ever gotten "hooked" on in my entire life. I...

    Most over rated genre (major boring) Your experience.

    Honestly, I'd have to say pretty much any Techno music for me these days, and in particular dubstep. And it's not actually that I dislike techno or anything, I simply think it's way overrated by so many of my peers. A LOT of my friends and people around me at my point in life seem to think of...

    Who is "Your Band"

    The only artist for me would be Bruce Springsteen. Not that I can say I followed his whole career or anything, given it started long before I was born, but it's a familial thing for me, and I love damn near everything he has done. There are so many bands that I could list as a tie for second...

    Show us your Head-Fi station at it's current state. No old pictures please...

    Quote:     Haha, I feel your pain there my friend. The only time I get to go to any kind of hi-fi store or anything of the like is when I'm down in Chicago visiting a friend, luckily that is frequent. I live in La Crosse, south west WI.

    Show us your Head-Fi station at it's current state. No old pictures please...

    Here's my living room (I live alone ):     And a close-up on my actual equipment:     Sorry about the crappy quality, I haven't used my camera in a long time and couldn't find the power cord for it, so had to use my phone.

    K701 Headphone rattle??

    There is one very very bassy song that I have heard a slight rattle on, but only at high to very high volume levels, and turning it down to a moderate level makes it disappear. Really has caused me no stress with my pair, but like I said it's really only been the one song that I've noticed it on...

    More choices ...when will it end! Pacific Valve Ming DA MC 84C07

    So I've been thoroughly enjoying this amp for 3 months now, and am looking to the future some. My next purchase will most certainly be a new DAC, but after that I'm looking at some new headphones. For the DT-880s, would you recommend the 250 or 600 ohm version pairing better with this amp? And...

    Technics Quartz turntable

    Hey everyone, I'm pretty young myself (21) and don't have much of any idea what I'm looking for when it comes to turn tables, so I'm looking for a little guidance. My grandfather on my mothers side had a Technics Quartz SL-1200MK2 Direct Drive Turntable System, and when he died my parents...

    Headphone recomendations for my teenaged daughter

    Well, since you have AD700s you know the size of them... I'd still probably toss a vote in for A700s (closed back version). I haven't heard them myself, but I love my AD700s and I actually used to bike to class and work with the headphones on with almost no problem, and toss them in my backpack...

    Best Gaming and Movie Headphone AD900 or DT880 or AKG K701

    Without an amp I wouldn't go for the K701s. You can use them without an amp and plenty of people have mentioned that they find them to be fine without an amp, but they aren't the most bass heavy cans to begin with, and without a dedicated amp I feel like you will be under-whelmed by them. I have...

    K701 unamped still better than most?

    I don't have a huge basis for comparison, but I gave my K701s a shot unamped just to see, and I much preferred the sound of my Audio Technica ATH-AD700s with no amp present. Personally, I think the AD700s sound just fine out of my iPod or just straight out of a computer, but my K701s are...

    I tunes- what is peoples beef with it?

    I've disliked iTunes for quite some time. I tried it when I first got my iPod (I'm still running a 4th gen. black and white screen 20 gig that I wish would die so I could justify getting a new player) and back then it's sluggishness was ridiculous, and not all of my music was uniform so I hated...

    Enjoy Porcupine Tree; what else?

    I cannot agree more with the King Crimson sentiment. I had actually been listening to a ton of KC and a friend mentioned Porcupine Tree to me. I'd definitely check out In the Court of the Crimson King and Lark's Tongue in Aspic if nothing else. Fantastic albums. Outside of KC, I think The Mars...

    What You Think is The Best Intro in a Song!

    Bruce Springsteen - Jungleland Tool - Lateralus Femme Fatale - At The Alter King Crimson - 21st Century Schizoid Man Ratatat - Nostrand (Well, the "intro" I take to be the first minute and 52 seconds)

    Beginner questions

    Hey again, Thanks for the input you two, and I'm definitely looking into the EF1. Probably a really dumb question on this, but what amp would I want, the 110V or 220V? I really don't even know what the difference would be, but I live in the USA if that is part of the picture. I was also...

    Beginner questions

    Hello everyone, first post here although I've been lurking for a month or two at this point. I spend probably 12+ hours a day on a computer between work and home, and for the most part was using crappy headphones at both until about a year ago when I started looking into a better and more...
