    Small concern with my beyerdynamic dt 1350s

    Hello,   I puchased these cans recently at one of the only stores that has these cans in my area.  I love every part of the headphone except from what I hear, both sides of the headband are supposed to swivel so do one ear monitoring.  My cans don't swivel which might sound weird but I don't...

    beyerdynamic dt1350 vs focal spirit classic

    which one do you think has a better soundstage and overall sq? I listen to ALL genres so perhaps i would want something that is relatively flat but has a low extension (not overly emphasized) bass.  These headphones should have a SLIGHTLY (not bass head sounding) bass boost.  I am looking for...

    Lossless vs. Lossy

    Hello   I am wondering if there is a noticeable difference between Lossless and 320 kb mp3s or 256 kb aacs with some of the lower end yet still audiophile headphones such Focal, Akg and Mr. Speakers mad dogs.  When I say lower quality I mean around 500-600 dollars and I know less expensive...

    Highest Bitrate AAC

    What is the highest bitrate AAC? Does an AAC with the same bitrate sound better than an MP3 with the same bit rate? Are AACs of the same bitrate as MP3s smaller in fille size?   The first question is the most important to me.   Thank you, Simon

    Akg k702 vs hifiman he500

      Let me clarify: I said portability not because I needed the setup to be portable, but because I needed a cheaper amp/dac and I assumed that portable was cheaper.  Are there desktop amp/dacs that are cheap and go well with either of these cans?  By cheap I mean around 150 dollars.  Are the...

    Mp3 to alac

    Thank you. I have other questions. AAC vs mp3? Will changing the bit of an mp3 in itunes improve the sound? Does a high quality mp3 have a notable difference with lossless files with a high end audio setup. Is it worth having expensive audio equipment with mp3 files?When you download a song on...

    Mp3 to alac

    Hello everyone. Will converting mp3s to alac/ apple lossless in my itunes library actually improve sq or will it be pointless and just make the file bigger? If it just makes the file bigger do you have any suggestions for getting the lossless sound quality. Thanks
