    HD650 fan. Like dark sound. Better "end game" for dark/veiled sound?

    So I have been on headfi since 2004 and the way I tend to do things is buy a bunch of crap, then use it for years till it breaks. I rarely upgrade.   I am getting a promotion at work so I was thinking about the Sennheiser HD800s since they are "end game" for Sennheiser.   However I really...

    Sonarworks Headphone Calibration software, anyone explain how I can get this working with foobar/musicbee?

    Perhaps I have just gone dumb this Labor Day but I got the 21 day trial from here:   I have tried copying the VST plugin to the foobar directory and musicbee but it doesn't show up anywhere in the options.  ...

    My 10 year old Little Dot ii+ has developed nasty distortion in the right channel. How can I tell if this is the tube or internet circuitry?

    I am amazed it still works and the tubes have not burned out. Since it has developed this distortion it has sat unused. I wouldn't mind buying new tubes but if the problem persists then it is a waste of money.   I always thought the tubes would just die some day. Not develop distortion.

    Why do companies make headphones hard to drive(300+ ohm) is it a conspiracy to sell more amps?

    Got to thinking. I have been on Head-fi since 2004 and heard my fair share of amps/headphones. I have been laptop only for years now and recently the headphone jack died. I picked up a Dragonfly v1.2 which sounds amazing considering it is only $150.   However it doesn't quite have enough power...

    Shiit Asgard 2 vs Objective 2. Convince me.

    So I have been using my Little Dot tube amp for years. I sold a Gilmore Lite 5 years ago and I find myself itching for solid state again. The discrete design of the Asgard 2 interests me but the Objective 2 is extremely popular.   so t houghts?

    What current amps have a similar sound signature to the Gilmore Lite?

    So I quit the headphone hobby in 2008 when the economy crashed and I had to move across the USA for a new job. I sold everything headphone related I owned with the exception of my Sennheiser 580s, 590s, and Little Dot tube amp.   Sadly I also sold my Gilmore Lite which I am still kicking...

    [POLL]Is it ok to question validity of "audiophile" claims/equipment?

    After a discussion I had last night in another thread, just started me thinking. People take this hobby very seriously, as do I. One of my personal principles I live by in my day to day life, is No Sacred Cows. I highly support critical thinking about absolutely everything. Basically...

    Welcome to PARADISEA+ !!! ( pics of DAC :) )

    Since I recently came into a nice chunk of change I decided to break my 2007 resolution of "No new headphone stuff for one full year" One aesthetic difference is the Paradisea+ has MHDT LAB cut out of the top of the box vs the original which had PARADISEA on the top. Let me start off by...

    Does the Foobar resampler DSP do anything to a file at the target sample rate?

    Messing around with Foobar again for the first time in a few months. So if you have a typical 44.1 file, and the resampler is set to 44.1 does it even do anything or no?

    Current or ex-SA5000 owners that switched to a different "main can", question

    Feeling the urge to expand my headphone collection again I was just curious, I know the SA5000 was popular here for a while, but many people have also sold it off. I am curious, what headphone did you switch too, and why specifically do you like it better than the SA5000s? What is it...

    Thinking of entering Grado town, recommendations for first Grado?

    Since I have a nice new tube amp on the way, I was thinking about how it would sound paired with Grados. I was thinking about The SR-60s naturally, but some people like the SR-80s more, should I get the 80s? What is the biggest difference? I considered the SR-225s but I would hate to drop...

    I just got a phone call today, after 3 interviews I got my new job making a nice chunk more than at my current job So I am thinking of rewarding myself with a new amp, in addition to recabling my SA5000s. My budget is $500-$1,000. I am not sure where to go. I am interested in Tubes, but...

    Which cans have the widest, and airy soundstage?

    Thinking about picking up yet another pair of cans :P Have very warm thick cans(akg 240) and very fast (SA5K). The Senn 457s aren't bad either but don't really accel at much besides smoothing sounds out and having thick bass. So I was thinking of picking up some cans with a very wide...

    I got my X-Fi Elite Pro yesterday and I was lucky enough to have TerryMX make me a 1/8" mini to 2 Male RCA cables to hook to my Gilmore Lite. I have been debating trying a silver cable or something to satisfy my curiosity, my limit is $150 though I would like to spend less if possible. I...
