    Headphone Adivce for a Metal Listener

    I also tested a lot of cans with metal, including Grado SR-225 and Alessandro MS Pro but I prefer the Grado SR 325i - they are very clear and detailed and have a great sound with electric guitars and also a deep punchy bass.

    Impressions Meet @ Hans from Qables 16-03-08

    I also enjoyed the Ergo very much but I thought that both Ergo's were the same and so I only tested the one that was connected on the front side of the amp - can anyone remember which one it was? I found the clarity and the comfort really impressive. Found some information on a swiss...

    What tube amp to buy

    That's a good point, thank you for your input. Do you experience a tubey sound with the Grado's or is it more subtle compared to a solid state amp?

    What tube amp to buy

    I think about purchasing a tube amp and I'm looking for what everyone calls a tubey sound. Would not like to spent to much money so I narrowed it down to Darkvoice 336i / 332, Little Dot MK III / IV or MF X-Can V-3. How does Yaqin-amps compare to the aforementioned? I will mainly use it with...

    Most "Moving" Guitar Solo

    Another vote for comfortably numb But also something different, I really love the solo in Iron Maiden's Paschendale ... and they have a lot of great other solo's, too, e.g. Afraid to shoot strangers ...

    The Mike Oldfield Thread.

    I really like the music of M.O., certainly not every album, but most of them. I also think the new one ist really great. For all the guitar-lovers you should really give the album "guitars" a try which seem's to be not so famous, but is really great and enjoyable. If you are into more...

    Meier Audio no more tubes?

    I have the same feelings, I'm also plannig to get a tube amp just to get an impression about what everybody calls "a tubey sound" ... I haven't heared tubes so far but I'm really curious. The Eartube was quite expensive and in the 400 -500 Euro range there are mainly Darkvoice and LD.

    Which Cans are best for Heavy Metal?

    I prefer the DT 880 (2003) with Tarja, Nightwish, Sirenia and Xandria with impressive female vocals and the Grado SR-325i with guitar based metal like Iron maiden and Dream Theater ...

    iPod Touch or Classic?

    I also thought about the classic and the touch and finally bought the classic. Why? More memory for a smaller price which means that I didn't have to make my mind about the songs I put on it, I can simply carry my hole collection. Furthermore the use of the touch has a "WOW-effect" at the...

    Corda Cantate or Opera?

    Has anyone compared the Corda Cantate vs. the Corda Opera? Is the Opera worth twice the price? I kno the technical details of both amps and since some preouts and a digital in would be nice I'm curious whether the Opera is much better soundwise or whether I could just be happy with the Cantate...

    Just in, Grado 325i's ROCK

    The SR-325i seem's be be a kind of "flavour of the month", there were a lot of threads about it in the past weeks. The positive feedbacks made me curios, I received my new SR-325i yesterday ... just spend about 2 hours with it, but my first impressin is: great detail and great clarity. I also...

    GRADO HEADPHONES : how much have you climbed the ladder ?

    I started with a SR-80 and loved the sound signature so much that I sold them an directly went forward to the RS-1's. While I really loved the sound signature, I only listen to music to maybe 1 or 2 hours a week (sometimes a little more and sometimes a little less) with headphones and so I...

    Iriver H10 / Rio Carbon and WMA-DRM

    Hi, I just made my decision to buy a DAP. I think, 5 GB will be enough for me. Important is, that the Player is small and has a very good sound quality (Iriver H10, Rio Carbon etc.), and of course, that the player is able to play WMA files that are bought from the internet and -DRM protected. I...

    NJB3 radio recording quality

    Hi Evo I'm also very interested in an answer about the sound quality of the recordings. But as far as I know, the NJB3 is also able to record up to 320 kbps. I hope that helps a little. If not it can record the wav-format, so you can change it into high-quality MP3's on your computer. For...

    Another headphone or an amp ? Need advice

    Hi gerG, thanks for your reply. My receiver has pre-outs, I looked it up in the manual. But only bass- and treble-control will have an effect on the sound then. There is no chance getting the DSP-modes out of the pre-outs. Maybe I'm a little bit discriminating ? The symbol for the euro is...
