    senn 595 bass vs. k701 bass vs. 325i bass

    This is going to be brief because I'm tired.... But the K701, while possessive of big and full ("natural" as said before) bass with the right amplification (I'm listening to "Alone With You" by Deadmau5 right at this second which has both big, round bass and shimmery highs in it, and the K701...

    k701, SR 325i, D2000, My Head is going to Explode: Can't Decide

    Wow, I haven't been to Head-Fi in ages... and to think my wallet was safe! I own the K701 and have had extensive listening experience with the 325i... based on what you describe as your musical tastes and so forth, between those two (as the ones I have actually heard) I would probably...

    What headphones are sexy sounding? Seriously.

    What headphones are sexy sounding? Seriously.

    Grado woodies.... bahahahahhaha..... I didn't even catch that until just a second ago. But really? The sexiest sound I have heard has been from HD650s... I don't own them, but I had a lengthy listen to a pair of them a little while ago. I found them very warm and intimate overall... plus...

    What Live concerts have you attended?

    This thread will be a challenge! Let's see... I don't think I will beat a lot of people here though! The Tragically Hip was the first legit concert I ever attended, some point in the late 90s, I think it was when Phantom Power was their most recent album. I've since seen them during the In...

    'hottest' album you own?

    Californication is exceptionally bad... also Kaiser Chiefs' "Yours Truly Angry Mob", an album which I have to turn down every time I listen to. The opening chords of "Ruby" almost killed my ears once as it came on the old Shuffle right after I finished listening to Rachmaninov. On the flip...

    Head-Fi Vinyl Geeks! Help!

    I was at my local record store today (Zulu Records, West 4th, Vancouver... woot!) and found a copy of Jaco Pastorius' self-titled LP, 1976 pressing on Epic records... aside from sleeve shelf wear, it's unplayed. CAT # PE 33949. I love Pastorius, so this was... Jackpot! Now... I looked this...

    Brick & mortar record store database

    Hey, this is not a bad thread... In Kingston, Ontario,there are a few neat stores: Brian's Record Option, in the Hub, Princess St. - This place is incredibly cramped and dusty and dark, but it is wall-to-wall with records of all kinds, an absolutely huge selection... mostly older stuff...

    Guys, K702 is coming. Be prepare.

    Stello DA100 (show-off/impressions thread)

    So... I've been reading this lengthy thread and some other threads, and have noticed the DA100 Signature... and my question is as follows. If I have no plans to be going to a Balanced system in the foreseeable future, is there any reason to drop the extended coin on the Signature?

    Yuin PK1-PK2 impressions thread

    I just received a pair of PK2 a couple of days ago and have been listening to them extensively through my iPod (they're going to be my main portable 'phones), and I must say I'm impressed! They kick the crap out of my old (now-dead) Vibes IMHO, very fun and involving sound, I would agree with...

    How close do you sit to your source?

    I am extremely tempted to answer "the Depths of Sheol" just for a laugh. But really, I don't catch any discernible noise at reasonable listening volume, and my computer sits about 2 feet from my DAC and a metre from my amp...

    Def Jux has single-handedly renewed my love for Hip-Hop:

    Hear hear, Def Jux is fantastic! I got hooked on them a couple of years ago when a friend of mine let me hear Loose Ends (the RJD2 remix tape)... recently listened to None Shall Pass which I thought was a stellar effort, and also I'll Sleep When You're Dead... El-P's sound still needs to grow on...

    Music That Makes You 'Shiver'

    For some reason "In My Place" by Coldplay... eegh, Coldplay! "Portrait of Tracy" by Jaco Pastorius Also, I agree with Binaural... getting the shiver is essentially why I wanted to find better audio gear.

    If you're into digeridoo and crazy stuff in general, look for Ganga Giri's albums. Having seen them live at Folk Fest Vancouver not once but twice, I can say that they're a pretty unique group.

    Koss headphones on sale at Radio Shack

    Hmm... I've been to the local radio shack ("The Source" now, I guess) a few times looking for KSC75s (need to replace the earclips on my recabled pair!) and they haven't had them in stock. Mostly lots of Marshmallows and low-end Sony stuff, and recently I noticed they carried Vibes... but no...

    M.I.A. is the ****

    I just downloaded "20 Dollar" and I am impressed! Huge drums, delicious vocal sound and the Pixies being turned into a gigantic (no pun intended) basshead dance tune? Oh yes.

    Higher-end Source Comparison Fantasies

    So... I've been sitting at my desk this morning reading posts, fairly bored, and thinking about my gear... I've been thinking about replacing my Beresford DAC for some time with a USB-compatible unit that'll really sing when combined with my amp, but I've got no actual money to facilitate that...

    Hip-Hop collection getting tired. Help.

    I don't think it's been mentioned, so try Pharaohe Monch - Desire. It's fantastic.
