    Sennheiser HD800 vs Audeze LCD-2 (Rev 2) vs Denon D7000 Shootout

      The HE6 sounds thin to some, the LCD series is a fuller sound overall, HE-6 being a more dry presentation.   I think all around HD800 is the winner, I would recommend the HE-500 back in the day for it's excellent value. I don't think the D7000 compares at all really, thats just me.

    SennGrado Thread

        Becoming a Member of the Trade is tricky. I used to DIY cables before I went commercial and you trade the ability to converse about the craft amongst your supporters with your personal pictures, stories, and product so that you can make some money for yourself.   My advice is to go legit...

    The Audeze LCD-2 Ortho thread (New)

      I actually haven't found that to be the case but yeah I mean Sabre is Sabre..   The different is faint. It's not huge and implementation and quality of components is much more important than a DAC chip choice. Burson makes good stuff.. could just be other stuff in the chain

    HiFiman HE-500 (HE as in High End) Proving to be an enjoyable experience in listening.

    I actually have no idea if it's ear-burn in, but on some days I perceive tone differently than others. The HE-500 doesn't have a HUGE range but it certainly can be really impactful some days, and even shrill on others. I do not know if it's because my amp needed to warm up, I'm going nuts, or...

    Need Advice: Dress Shoes for Interviews, Cost no Object

    A good fitting shoe with proper structure will feel better than a squishy padded footbed shoe. Padding usually makes up for a poor fit and for Alden, with it's many widths available, you should have the best fitting shoe possible. I'd like to tell you that Allen Edmonds does not necessarily do...

    Hey, everybody. I'm really sorry that a valued repeat customer like this one slipped through the cracks. He has been an avid supporter of my brand since the very beginning and it truly broke my heart that I've failed to make things right in a timely manner for one reason or another. I'm handling...

    Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2

      Quite well, it was basically made for it and the HE-500/HE-6..

    Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2

      1.4W, it would do it but it wouldn't be happy with it.   I would probably go have a look at some of Schiit's offerings

    Grado e Series

      Oh man I'm getting nostalgia from when I first joined Head-Fi and first knew of those.

    Grado Fan Club!

        The HF-2 was somewhat of a departure from the Grado house sound, by going even warmer, little less on the highs. It was a thicker overall sound, think Sennheir HD650, LCD-2 etc. I mean only in signature not in overall presentaiton.   PS500 is based on PS1000 with smaller aluminum...

        Very nice, thats the way to do it man. Once you go CRK, there is literally nothing else. I buy customs just because it makes me feel good but objectively that is the best folding knife in the world as far as were concerned.

    Need advice: noble K10 vs JH roxanne

    I find the 16's boomy as well, it's not just us being spoiled, I really thought it was a bit "much". I think you may want to look into the JH13.. thats why I got them. That being said I have a set of 8A's and they're on the warm side too but I really do like that sound signature. If you're...

    We're punched in. Gotta find out what these sound like, it's so awesome to see a new product from these guys. Lightweight is good.

    AKG K612 PRO on Creative X-FI Titanium

    You'll be fine. If you can adjust the volume to get enough volume without going beyond say, 80% volume you have enough power. Tonality is another thing but I think people really stress the need for a headphone amp a bit much. I just look at them as expensive volume knobs these days and not much...

    Fun, forgiving headphones

    Grado fan for life. If you wear them properly, they can be a great pair of headphones for extended listening sessions. A young Chris once took a listen to a pair of Kramer's Grado RS-1's and became hooked and later morphed into a terrible being of power on Head-Fi.. but thats another story.  ...

    Can the Akg 240 mkii be driven by my sound card?
