    Monolith M300 In Ear Planar Earphones

    Yeah they are not the most portable earphones stock, more transportable if anything. I think one of the YouTube reviewers was saying that it seemed like they recycled the cable from rev 1 m1060s. I was kind of looking at the me-elec HiFi cable. A lot of people were saying that it is pretty...

    Monolith M300 In Ear Planar Earphones

    I never heard the iSines, sorry if I gave that impression. Honestly I am very content with the m300 at this point. The detail retrieval is pretty solid, its weirdly airy (kind of contributes to a hollowness I feel), and the bass is pretty extends a lot farther without sounding muddy (Comparing...

    Monolith M300 In Ear Planar Earphones

    Well I got mine. So far I think they sounds pretty good. The width that it has is definitely a surprise (not really since its supposed to be ripping the iSines off anyways rights?). I am comparing that to the se215s though so I don't think that is very surprising. Space Oddity was definitely a...

    Havi B3 Pro-1 Impressions Thread

    I got my B3s earlier today from Penonaudio, took about 6 days including the day that I actually placed my order. I have to say that they sound great so far. Powering them out of my DX50 or S5, they don't have any problems just having such a great sound.

    ***Earbud Guide - 22 Earbuds compared***

    A set of earbuds that are coming with the new Amazon phone that was announced yesterday. Might be promising, might not be. Though it might be worth mentioning as a lot of phone makers tend to throw iems with their phones nowadays instead of earbuds. Looks inspired of the earpod from Apple a...

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    Is he using a virtual surround dsp? If he isn't, that is probably why there is that "deadzone"... I noticed that in some games when you have 5.1 sound on and no virtual surround on the sounds are oriented very left, right, front, and rear. There isn't necessarily a front-right or front-left...

    Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (9/21/2020: Sennheiser PC38X Review added)

    To get virtual surround out of a ps3 you would want a Astro Mixamp or Turtlebeach DSS, if I am not mistaken.

    Basic way to stream Spotify to my stereo?

    I might be missing something but couldn't you just use the headphone/line out of your computer and be done with it? I know for the windows version there is a add on for Spotify called Equalify that adds a equalizer to Spotify as well as the ability to push Spotify sound to any audio output on...

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    Wow didn't even know that existed, then again I was like ~9 years old and didn't have an interest in computers back then other than my Dreamcast.

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    Yeah, it is what I have been doing for a while now, outputting to my e07k, comparatively I find the soundblaster z much brighter then the e07k. It wasn't my discovery. It was a guy in MLE's thread, goes by the name of SniperCzar I believe.

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    Don't know what soundcard you have whether it is the Z, ZxR, or omni, but on the Z there is an option in Windows Recording devices that allows you to actually push audio that is processed by the sound card to a usb dac. It is called "What U Hear" and all you have to do is "check" the "Listen to...

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    Dang, if the software works through optical on that motherboard, that would be really cool for those who want itx builds. I recently ordered a D03k to check out how optical works out with my SB Z sound card before I get my feet wet with more expensive optical dacs, got it for 16 bucks too.

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    Yeah, DDL/DTS does change the sound quite a bit, not sure if for the better or not SQ wise. I remember I had configured DTS a certain way, unfortunately can't remember the exact settings, that really increased pinpoint accuracy in games I felt like it really enhanced the sound of foot steps so...

    The Nameless Guide To PC Gaming Audio (with binaural headphone surround sound)

    I was using some older ones because I didn't want to download the music server thing, which basically disallowed me from downloading any future drivers. So now I am on what I assume to be the most updated drivers via their website.

    The Nameless Guide To PC Gaming Audio (with binaural headphone surround sound)

    Man, I have no clue what I am doing wrong. I think I am going to reinstall the SBZ drivers and see if that will help. It seems people usually have problems with turning it off, I am having problems turning it on...     EDIT: I've uninstalled, then reinstalled the SBZ driver and "What U Hear"...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Hey, I was looking at some earbuds for a friend of mine. He says that he really likes the Apple Earpods, I was wondering if there was a sort of "direct upgrade" from them with a better build quality. He was looking to spending around ~80-90 USD on them, but going up a bit more isn't a problem...

    Havi B3 Pro-1 Impressions Thread

    Can anyone compare these to Etymotic Research HF5? Interested in nabbing of B3s, but if they are similar I probably wouldn't put the money down on them.

    The "IEMs That Significantly Perform BELOW Their Price Point" Thread

    Might just be fit, but to me the R3s aren't all that great. They lack a lot of clarity, sound distant, and a PITA to put on and keep on.

    Found these "Do-It Yourself" Yuin PK3's on eBay and my question to you is: sketchy, or legit?

    I imagine in this context DIY refers to the fact that he popped the earbuds open and changed the cable himself, rather than him just sending everything to you and have you assemble it your self.

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    Yeah they are 62ohms so they don't require TOO much power, have the Z/Windows Audio Panel hovering around 40% most of the time. But a lot of people on the Q701 appreciation thread always make fun of the sensitivity of them and howthey require a power plant for them to be driven well.

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    That would be quite unfortunate if it needed to be low sensitivity as I have switched to the AKG Q701s. My understanding is that it they are pretty insensitive.

    Q701 impressions thread

    I received my Q701 and have been listening to them for a while now. First impression? I can definitely notice the bumps on the headband, but they have yet to cause my pain.    Comparing it to my AD700 they seem to feel more like a closed headphone as they are not as airy and don't seem to let...

    Q701 impressions thread

    How's it going all!        After much deliberation and "blood, sweat, & tears" spent working, I have finally ordered my Q701s from Amazon. I first went to Fry's in Manhattan Beach, but left empty-handed. For those that don't know the Fry's in Manhattan Beach, CA, you're pretty much on your...
