    looking for neutral headphones

    hi acidx, thx for the suggestions: are the k phones akgs? what is the difference between the 240df and mkII plus aren't the newer ones the akg k242 and k272? i'm leaning toward the akgs as they have a good price/performance ratio in europe at the moment and look really comfy.

    looking for neutral headphones

    i just don't think they sound natural. i've not made my mind up yet. it's just that akgs are really cheap at the moment. i can get a new akg 702 for €220 ($305), but i am a bit worried if my turtle beach audio micro will cope.

    looking for neutral headphones

    are the hd25-1-ii and the akg k242 rubbish compared to the dt880 32ohm, as the latter is twice as expensive as the former two. i only want to use these to listen to voice podcasts when i'm in bed.

    Apple lossless glitch on 4g ipod when using dbpoweramp.

    why don't you just use itunes? there are no differences in the lossless files that itunes and dbpoweramp produce, by using itunes you are asking for less trouble
