    A solution for running (player + headphone) < 200$

    Hi , My old earbuds for sport died because of broken cables (ksc 75 & pmx 680). That's why I thought it might be a good idea to switch to something wireless . But my old sansa player doesn't support Bluetooth (also it's probably outdated) , and I don't want to run with a smartphone.(Mine is...

    Below 500$, upgrading the srh940 (closed headphoone)

    hi, the headband of my srh940 has cracked, and I'm looking for something better in built quality , and that keeps some "aspect" of the srh940 sounds.   What I really liked on the srh940, is a bit some "aggresivity" on the  sound, which seems perfect for some fast-paced psytrance (or...

    How to “create” a crossfeed (the steps).

    I didn’t like much the existing crossfeed solutions (software-based only).  I found they damage transients and when I listen with my hd800 it becomes obvious.  Curiously when I try to perform the crossfeed myself, using some high qual  eq , the result is more convincing. I will explain here how...

    mx980, for the bed , worth it ? missing my k317.

    hello, I'm really missing my akg k317 ear buds ( broken ) .  I  loved their treble, and wide soundstage.  In the online store I plan to buy, I only found the k318, and that doesn't seem a good replacement  : the k318  look thinner, so I  guess the driver is smaller; also I don't want an apple...
