    Denon AH-D9200 - 2018 Flagship - Impressions Thread

    My suggestion for anyone looking at a single-unit DAC+AMP would be RME ADI-2. That's what I use, and it will be perfect for anything but the most power-hungry headphones. In-built EQ is also a differentiator and a game-changer IMO.

    Mid Fi - General chat for all discussions and general chat a Thread for all.

    With full-sized headphones I feel that adding EQ into the mid-fi segment can get you very special tunings that are very difficult to replicate as a whole package with any other headphone, has anyone here been taking mid-fi IEMs and messing with EQ to see if something great they own is actually...

    Head-Fi Basshead IEM thread (lists page 1)

    This may be kind of a weird question but if I wanted DD bass in a musically neutral/balanced presentation with pressure venting/relief for $1.5k and under used/new, I feel like the IEM market has many contenders in this bracket and I want to be inclusive of the options - what would you folks...

    Bravo @MidnightSun this is exactly what I was looking for when it comes to giving an in-depth crash course on IEMs, thank you so much!

    Headphones to IEMs knowledge check and help

    Hey folks I think I'm going to move from headphones to IEMs due to general comfort issues with glasses and full size headphones, been years of telling myself I don't need to do that but looking at the list of headphones I've sold at this point... reality bites. What do I need to know about IEMS...

    The Hardest hitting Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club")

    Send them an email to clarify, their contact info is on their website. They basically have 2 main products which are called EMu-Teak and EMu-Walnut, with the Walnut being the 40mm driver and Teak the 50mm driver. They additionally can make extra cups from different woods for you so I imagine the...

    The Hardest hitting Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club")

    I use regular. I won't disagree that different woods can impart different qualities to sound, but my controversial take is that it's largely irrelevant. If they're the same price, get the one you prefer the look / physical weight of more.

    The Hardest hitting Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club")

    I would echo the advice to go for EMu-Teaks, IMO they are by far the best Fostex-based including Fostex's own headphones from what I've heard. I haven't listened to the Shure SRH1540 but they would be a different sound signature that should still be able to reproduce bass well from what reviews...

    JM Audio Editions XTC Headphones

    Looking at the XTC-2.5C vs XTC-2O, is the choice just whether you need isolation or not? I generally expect Closed backs to have better bass quantity but with the tunings and reviews I've read it seems the Open can be more than sufficient, though I am a bass head. I also can't wrap my head...

    Meze Audio 109 Pro

    What are headphones that follow a similar sound profile to the Meze 109 Pro either as sidegrades or upgrades? I feel like Meze Empyrean 1 might be an upgrade/sidegrade and looking at this thread I've noticed the QUAD Era1 might be a sidegrade, what else can folks think of? Doesn't matter to me...

    Fostex TH808 :: Impressions Thread

    Fostex TH808 :: Impressions Thread

    I've only heard the th900mk2 White Anniversary so I can't compare to original tuning th900mk2 but they did not leave a good impression on me. I felt the bass was lacking without significant EQ and I couldn't help but feel that they were pointless outside of a collector's item because IMO a D9200...

    Fostex TH808 :: Impressions Thread

    That's what I mean, if they're just applying 900 Anniversary tuning to 909s then I'll be sad.

    I hope it's not the anniversary tuning, I found that lackluster.

    The Closed-Back Headphone Thread (Plus Comparisons & Reviews)

    I think what you're describing is a used ATH AWAS and I crossed off the ones on your list that I know are particularly bass-oriented. In regards to bass though, if you want sub-bass then the ATH AWAS may not satisfy and I might uncross the D7200 and EMU Teak in that case though it's important to...

    The Closed-Back Headphone Thread (Plus Comparisons & Reviews)

    9200 has small ear openings in the pads, if they don't bother you then sonically you're good but isolation will still be questionable and comfort can be improved with a headband wrap. I haven't heard the Liric or the Stellia from that recommended list of 5 but the Radiance imo doesn't belong on...

    Beyerdynamic T1 3rd Gen out now

    I picked up a new pair of T1.3s to try out recently and have been enjoying them with some EQ tweaks, however I think I've just realized that they're the source of the minor headaches I've been having lately. I'll keep adjusting the headband dot system in the meantime to see if that can solve it...

    For those of us with multiple headphones, which ones are you listening with now?
