    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    Can someone kindly explain to me how thing works like im 12? Is this meant to replace your amp/dac? Will you have to connect your DAC to it, what if it's not enough to power/drive headphones properly? And if you only have a headphone set-up without any 7.1 sound card virtualization, is it...

    Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (8/18/2022: iFi GO Blu Review Added)

    I just revived from inactivity, but big shout-out to the people like MLE and others who keep updating this thread and all the useful information that's out there. To me, its kinda funny, It's 2018 and nothing significant has been implemented (software wise) that with just 1 click of a button...

    Little Dot Tube Amps: Vacuum Tube Rolling Guide

    Gibosi/Mordi   What do you guys think about the 6HM5 Yugo and the 6N6P-IR Gold Grid Combination?   How would the Mullard M8100 compare to the Yugo? The Voshkod 6N23P are decent as power tubes, but i find them a little bright and too detailed.     I'm looking for something airy...

    Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106)

    ljoker. I really appreciate this thread.  I remember lurking those rainy nights and reading all about the iems that i wanted and was always glad to see a nice detailed summary of everything listed.     So I've been using the Visang-R02's for quite a long time, and i love em, but they...

    Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread

    Listening to Richard Marx - Touch Of Heaven   Absolutely incredible on the LD MKIII. Simply incredible. The lush mids. The sweet vocal tonality . The quality bass, the center-stage of awesomeness.     The loudness of the Senn's don't bother me anymore.  So what if these HD600's get loud as...

    New Hifiman HE-5LE planar magnetic headphone

    ye   that's the thing, on paper, The WA2 is supposed to be designed for high impedance headphones.  But there have been some reports that is works wonderful for low impedance as well. I skimmed through the Woo Audio 2 thread and some dude said that the ATH-W5000 and the WA2 amp was magic. ...

    Looking for a headset for Movies (mainly) music and games.

    Their soundstage isn't as wide as the HD555's (if i recall)   get either the AD700, HD555 with a logitech standpoint mic.  The rest goes on either a cheap dac/amp combo like the Zero .If you desperately need the 6 channel surround sound, get sth like the Omega striker. Xonar Essence STX also...

    Woo Audio Amp Owner Unite

    So the Woo Audio thread starter and our jolly ole' buddy ole' pale dannie01 has concurred all his demons and finally stepped his game up with the WA5-LE.   It may not be as strong as musicman59's 'The Black Beauty', it may not burn  with the same caliber as the B.B  , but it inherits the...

    The Beyerdynamic DT880 Discussion thread

    put the LD's amp gain to 3 or 4 ( i personally like 4 the best) People like Prickley_Peete say that you should follow it by the books and match your headphone impedance with the LD manual, but I've come to realise that it doesn't always work out this way. Low gain always works best on high...

    Rate The Last Movie You Watched

    tbh, I've always wanted to watch Kick-Ass, but somehow.. each and everytime I watch the trailers, the retardedness(mostly at the costumes/Macgyver wannabe  action scenes& stances), cheesy implicible instant see-through cliches(that hodjy mentioned) that looks like it's going to miserably fail so...

    Quest for Holy Grail of gaming sound!

    anything for slam = has DT990 written all over it.   TheWuss can vouch as well   Just make sure to get the 600ohm drivers since they take nearly the same juice as the 250ohm model. Also, I see that you're getting that Little Dot MKIII. Great sounding amp, but make sure you tube roll.  Only...

    Ultrasone Pro 750's + Auzentech Forte 7.1 ...... Do I need an Amp?

    you prob don't need it cause Auzentech already has a built in amp inside.  You could get something cheap like a Zero DAC/AMP. That is known to drive low impedance quite well + it has its own volume knob, so no more changing volume from windows volume panel !

    Quest for Holy Grail of gaming sound!

    Quote: I'm sure the HD800's would be terrific and have a nice eerie World War II feeling, but the DT990/600 trumps it in every regard.  Gaming doesn't necessary needs the most amount of detail, sure it helps.... but it's just way too overkill since Game Designers/Sound Engineers don't focus...

    Worth selling the 2005/6 DT880 250ohms to get the 600ohms version?

    me and MacadeneonHero both made terrible mistakes of purchasing the DT880/250ohm in the past ,  but in Macadeneon's case, he immediately got rid of his, and somehow I'm still stuck mine .   I noticed immediate differences and flaws from the DT880/250 when i switched the DT990/600ohm.  The...

    hd650 or hd800

    R.I.P to those audio technica a700.  Give them a proper burial, my friend   For wide soundstage, HD650 might not be the answer(but depends if it's properly amped), but this headphone should never be fatiguing since it has relaxing treble. If you game, I strongly recommend the DT990's.

    Even Amazon has them for $250 now.  I guess Amazon corp thought aloud "Heh, we can't beat B&H prices, so let's just copy what they do and try to hold our own"    It took Amazon 5 months to realize that with their DT990/600's when B&H was slapping amazon around with their incredible deals...
