    Just bought a pair of Audio Technica ATH-M50's, Worth it?

    The e17 is very nice unit, clean small and adjustable.  I like the M50 for all round dance, hip hop and house. Just test out the amps in your price range and as i always say " if you cant hear the difference don't spend the money"    happy listening.

    **Best amp/dac for $400**

    Quote: With the Bifrost and the Valhalla, I found that even though it was warm and full in the sound. when it came to the sound more so in the mids and highs, the sound blended and you lost the little bits of detail that I personally love. Having now listened to what I think is a crazy...

    Non-audiophile reactions to high-end headphones

    Headphones + dac/amp help please

    Might be worth looking at an audio gd nfb-5. Well worth the money. I personally started with a set of sennheiser hd 25 and a fiio e17 and e9 desktop. I love the sound of the bt880 and have now bought both the DT 880 and the hd 650.

    Review by 'Ds79' on item 'FiiO E17'

    What can I say, I started my headphone audio journey with an E7+E9 combo. Now let me add that I have been into audio for a long time mostly cars and home. Butter amps and focal speakers, so we aren't talking beginner here. I do know what I like the sound of, and understand that audio is very...
