    How many of you still have your first pair of good headphones?

    I have sold my first great cans igrado 2years ago. I still remember how I thrilled by this tiny cans. But After doing some journey with the grado and audio technica gears(see my signature), then I realize that they don't suit my preference and taste of music so I had to let their go. Not best...

    Is an amp worth it using AAC 256kbps tracks?

    I think it is more to headphone you using right now, the source (bitrate) at minimum 128 is good enough for music.

    Denon AH-D2000 or Grado SR325i

    try hybrid amp w/ d2000, the imaging and the soundstage is wonderful. The greatest strength of the d2000 is the bass, bass has more impact and space which I don't hear when paired with my portable amp d3 phyton

    Denon AH-D2000 or Grado SR325i

    I agree that d2000 sound so horrible when not properly amp, I prefer Yuin PK1 than d2000 when no amp use, or with d3 phyton. But when amp properly the music live presentation d2000 can be so beautiful. But I think with this price range sr325i and d2000 need to have a good amp to optimitize their...

    What's your Audio Nirvana?

    Ipod5thgen-D3phyton-Starquad LOD-YuinPK1 even not so good with isolation (I sometime use it to go to my office on a bus, hiding the ipod and the amp in myjacket ) I am still very happy with the result. This combo always be my standard when comparing other gears. ToshibaM300-D3phytonDAC-IC...

    New Headphone Suggestions

    I am very satisfied with my d2000, it is better for me than previous hp I own (see my sig) but d2000 definitely need an amp to sound with good imaging and bass. For comparison about grado the d2000 more dark (alot of bass) and great soundstage and i think a little more laidback cmiiw

    Tube rolling recommendation for EF1?

    with rca cleartop the imaging is superb. I hear the song autumn in seatle by Tsuyoshi Yamamoto, and very surprised, It is like someone playing piano in myroom!! in front of me. But maybe all tube sound like this eh? But I still feel the rca cleartop feel boring in guitar acoustic...

    AD700 midrange

    I never try ad700, but i think they share the benefits with a900 such as huge soundstage and clean bass. it is opposite of the grado with so laidback sounding, and thin mid, nevertheles it is the fastest headphone I try so far When i tried ad900 + ibasso d3 phyton, I did not really hear some...

    Everyone on Head-Fi can't be wrong, can they? Dissapointed with Grado SR-225's..

    I want to share my experience as well. When I first bought my first cans in audiophile jungle, igrado, it had some wow factor to me, yet I still remember how it feels right now. Then I eventually get some serious illness, which I guest all the gentlemen around here also have it. The upgraditis...

    D2000 praise/discussion

    For me the d2000 is for day listening, it is fun cans but not really suit for night listening. For that I am still like Yuin PK1 more because more laidback and smooth

    Help me find a pair that suits me

    some people say grado must be recabled, do it and get some modification on the earcup , use wood housing > I believe sr60 with proper mod will become more spasius and get more bass impact

    amp recommendations for denon d2000

    the d2000 stock to my ear is lacking of space definition (not natural and compressed ambience/soundstage) and uncontrolled bass. And always have uncomfortable high I have found the ttvj millet hybrid is really great to pair with, it improves all I mention above, and excel in midrange(articulate...
