    Rupert Neve Designs Announces The RNHP: Precision Headphone Amplifier

      I'm also curious if anyone has a comparison of the RNHP to the Lake People G109? The balanced inputs are very appealing.

    Klipsch's NEW line of Reference X IEMs (X6i, XR8i, X12i, X20i)

    I can't recommend the X20i / Herus+ combination enough. I look forward to listening to it everytime--sounds perfectly balanced to my ears, with nice bass impact. I can comfortably enjoy tunes on the road without missing my home setup; can't ask for much more in a portable setup

    Klipsch's NEW line of Reference X IEMs (X6i, XR8i, X12i, X20i)

      Klipsch has never just been about the SQ, at least for me. I generally hate the feel of IEMs, but find Klipsch's super comfortable. That said, I tolerated the X10/X11i for their SQ due to comfort, while I actually really enjoy the X20i for music. They don't sound great directly out of a...

    Beyerdynamic DT 1990 PRO - Beyer's open-back mastering headphone

    Probably, by warmer sounding, I mean the 880 is more veiled and has a smoother presentation as compared to the 1990 (A pads). The 880 is not a warm headphone by itself. Unquestionably, the 1990 has more body than the 880 in the lows & mids.

    Beyerdynamic DT 1990 PRO - Beyer's open-back mastering headphone

      As far as comfort, it is a step down from the DT 880 premium (I haven't tried the pro). There is more clamp on the 1990 and they will be just as warm. For sound, they each have pretty different sound signatures. The 1990 is more detailed and layered and has considerably more punchy...

    The NEW ATH-ES700..

    I recommend that you purchase the pads directly from Audio-Technica's parts department instead. Just email and ask about purchasing a replacement set of ESW9 pads (don't mention they're for the ES700).They charge $36.26 + $4 shipping for them in the US.

      For an iPhone 4S with iOS 7, the iPad CCK works perfectly with the C5D. JDS Labs recently made a blog post covering all of the DAC connection methods for Android and iDevices:

    WOO-HOOOO... WA7 "fireflies"!!!

    Really looking forward to receiving the WA7 soon. I just have a question for those pairing low impedance headphones with the WA7, such as the 25 ohm D7000 and TH900: which jack/output do you use? I've read the 1/8 "IEM" jack has an output impedance of 23 ohms, so I'm assuming that suits low...

    Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro - Limited Edition, 32 Ohms

    Couldn't agree more. Blows the M50 and COP out of the water.

    Best Around-ear Headphones for office (with good bass)?

    I've had no issue driving the DT770 Pro-32 directly out of an iPhone 4S. The audio quality of the iPhone 5/5S is supposedly worse than the 4S, but it shouldn't sound as bad as you describe. Also, this wouldn't cause a problem exclusively for the iPhone, but if you are using velour pads, I've...

    Modding the Sennheiser pc350 headset

    Quote:   The volume control does seem to be overly fragile. My friend's set has popping in the output from the mic and left channel issues if the in-line controller moves at all and my set just recently picked up a volume issue as well. Seeing as this set is marketed for using at LAN...

    Modding the Sennheiser pc350 headset

    If you're wanting bass, the 555 pads won't do it for you on the PC350's. Check out the PXC 450 pads, I use them on my pair of PC350's and couldn't be happier with the comfort/bass response.

    I've been having some problems with the inline remote causing static/cut out on 1 channel of audio. Anyone else having these issues after pro-longed use?

    What song do you use for impressing the newbies?

    "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" - Eurythmics, the vocals really bring it home.

    The Beyerdynamic DT880 Discussion thread

         Quote: They are quite large, the cups fit completely around my medium-sized ears. They are circumaural rather than on-ear headphones. I was actually surprised when I received my pair, I thought the cups would be much smaller than they were.

    Modding the Sennheiser pc350 headset

    Dampening material is the best way to solve overextended/muddy bass. Add some cotton balls to the inside of the cup (adjust the amount to how they sound) and you should be good to go. I would think if you added more holes it would increase the amount of bass, not decrease it.

    open cans with clarity

    The DT880-600Ω have some incredible clarity, but they are a little cold. If you like the warm sound signiture of Sennheiser, check out the HD600 and HD650.
