    Studio Monitors vs Studio Headphones

    It is also much easier to work with speakers as opposed to headphones. Your ears will take much less of a beating and your not confined to the room.

    Conversion and FLAC quality.

    I think we should explain why... Think of music as a something under a microscope. When you have 1/100th of an object under the microscope can you see the other 99 pieces? No, why? Simply because it is not there. When you have low quality music, there are parts of it that are "missing"...

    Computer- should I upgrade to 4GB?

    Why not just overclock your GPU and RAM to get a bit more? I've overclocked my CPU by about 8% and my GPU by about 20% and I have an increase in preformance for free.

    Ipod LODs

    Do Ipod LODs work without an amp? For example if i was to use a coupler and my headphones would the LOD work ? Or would this just be pointless.

    Headphone technology

    The audiophile market is very small. I mean how many of your friends are willing to part 400-1000+$ for just a pair of headphones when they can listen to the exact same music with free earbuds. Many people buy after market headphones but its safe to assume that a 50-60% of people don't until...

    Skullcandy Headphones

    OKAY Guys, we are humans WE ONLY HAVE 1 pair of ears (THAT MEANS 2) now.... I don't understand why people would go out and ruin their single pair of ears ( THAT MEANS 2) with cheap earphones, which go stright into your ear canal and project sound into your ear drums directly. I see too many...

    Do earbuds need Burn in too ?

    Yea earbuds definately do work better with a burn in . I burnt in my shure E2C and they definitely sound better. I used classical pop/opera to burn them in due to the wide spectrum of highs and lows.

    Grados SR325is?

    Okay, well I've done a bit of research on the two headphones and WOW I cannot believe how cheap they are. On headroom the AKG 702 and 701 are only 310$ and the Grado SR 325is are even cheaper at $295. However my biggest interest is which one is better for classical and vocal music. Other...
