    Sennheiser HD250 Linear Impressions Micro-Thread

    Yes! this is something i've noticed too. I think 20 to 30 years ago, they really did care about sound quality..and now it's more about making money. I've owned a few Sennheiser headphones and to me, the older models sounded better and where of better quality.

    How did you know when you reached your endgame?

    I didn't realize it at the time but it seems I reached my endgame setup with my very first purchase in this hobby 10 years ago when I bought a Denon AH-D5000. I then bought a AKG K702 and by the end of 2008 I had spent almost $2,000 building my first separates system. It seems I got it right the...

    Show us your Head-Fi station at it's current state. No old pictures please...

    Cassette deck is just a fancy term to indicate that it is part of a separates system. The system pictured is actually my fathers (he bought it in 1996 for $1,100) but he recently gave it to me lol. The cassette deck has Dolby Noise Reduction, even by todays standards, it is very good.

    Chinese / Asian Brand Info Thread (On or Over Ear Headphones)

    I strongly disagree that the T5P is "bad" for it's price.

    What are the most detailed headphone to hear details (audio example inside)?

    The most obvious path to being able to hear the difference between 320 kbps mp3 and Flac is to invest in a high end cd player and amp combination. This will maximize the performance of the HD650, although perhaps also invest in a headphone that is a little brighter sounding as this will also...

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    To be clear, what i'm basically saying is that in my opinion..the HD700 sound signature/tuning is seriously flawed. Like a broken/faulty speaker or an out of tune musical instrument, it seems to me that there are octaves/tones and audible information missing from recordings..no matter what amp I...

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    One thing I will say is that the drivers of the HD700 sounded good in a closed-back design..this is something I discovered when I took them out of their housing and put them in a closed-back Beyerdynamic T5P (the T5P developed a fault, so I thought i'd replace the Tesla drivers with HD700...

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    I did have a tube amp (albeit an inexpensive one) years ago that I used with my first K702 but the amp exploded after only a few months. After that happened I decided not to buy another tube amp. Fortunately there is nothing wrong with all my other audio equipment..the Cyrus CD player and amp I...

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    My dedicated headphone amp which has a high quality Burr Brown 384/32 bit DAC and output level of 80mW into 600 Ohm couldn't even make the HD700 I had, any fun to listen to.

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    I do have a very high quality Cyrus CD player and powerful class-A amplifier that I use when I really want to test my headphones/speakers. It works every time no matter what headphones/speakers I use..it totally transforms them..except the only thing that seemed to improve significantly with the...

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    The HD700 was one of the oddest most flawed headphones I've ever owned/heard..I know it's just my opinion but I honestly think the tuning was all over the place, akin to an out of tune musical instrument. At times I'd describe the HD700 as sounding dark, yet also times I thought it was too...

    What are the most detailed headphone to hear details (audio example inside)?

    If someone wants to hear every single detail in the music they are listening to, imo it is most important that the source device they are using has a really good DAC; at least 24 bit/192 Khz. In my experience, I find that CD players are better at retrieving detail in recordings than DAP's, PC's...

    Classical Music Headphone Shootout II: Mid-Fi

    Nice review but the Sennheiser HD600 and HD6XX are not semi-open headphones lol.

    Most comfortable headphones for under $400?

    Audioquest Nighthawk, Beyerdynamic T70 with T5P earpads (T5P earpads are about $40), Beyerdynamic DT880, Bang & Olufsen H9 (haven't tried the H9 but I used to own the H6 and I believe the H9 has the same earpads and design as the H6 and that was a very comfortable headphone).

    What is Massdrop?

    Yes this is true. I live in the UK and after having parted with $450 of my money for the Fostex TH-X00 Purpleheart, I had to pay an extra $100 in customs charges. I do think it was worth it for the overall price I paid, when compared to the price of the TH-X00 Purplehearts bigger brother, the...

    Sennheiser HD820

    There are many musicians who do record/mix and master their own music (myself included). It is a good thing to use speakers and headphones during the mixing stages.

    Sennheiser HD820

    IMO a neutral headphone should be one that has full spectrum sound. A headphone that can reach the lowest bass notes without sounding bloated, has warm mids yet no details are masked..and has no annoying treble peaks whilst being bright/clear enough to hear background details in recordings. So...

    Closed-Black Headphones!

    A cheaper alternative to the T5P would be the Beyerdynamic T70. The T70 is likely one of the best headphones anyone can buy in terms of price to performance ratio. Your Shiit Fulla and Fiio will provide plenty of power to the T70. One thing to note is that many people find this headphone to be...
