    Recable the Ultrasone DJ1?

    This is probably a long shot, but I recently got my hands on a free pair of Ultrasone DJ1 closed cans! The problem (for me) is that the cable is coiled, long, and unfortunately non-removable. I'm not looking for a recabling that increases the quality of these headphones, because I honestly...

    “Beats by Dr. Dre”

    I just bought some beats (got them half off, or else I wouldn't have even considered them). I saw them in person first and liked the aesthetics, so I decided to drop what was necessary to try out a pair. I've only had them 2 days, but here's my impression so far. This is with my ears being...

    Posthardcore/Screamo/Metalcore Discussion

    It Dies Today would be exactly what you're looking for. You would like Sirens the most, because it is mostly singing, but Caitiff Choir is a really good album. For those of you that like Unearth, check out Arise and Ruin, they're a canadian metalcore band that had their latest full-length...

    Ultrasone HFI-780 or PRO 750 - Final Verdict?

    Quote: Originally Posted by kevenz For the look, I certainly prefer the 780's black over the 750's blue.... I think blue and gray is ugly to be honest. Yeah, they can be ugly. Just make sure if you wear them in public that your outfit matches the color scheme, or else they will...

    Phones for College

    I used a Beyerdynamic DT770 my freshman year of college when I lived on campus, and it really helped to have closed cans for a number of reasons: 1. Isolation: If you'll be studying outside, in the library, or at an on-campus coffee shop, it will really help to have closed cans both for the...

    How many CDs / Records do you own?

    I outgrew my 125CD binder this past summer, so I'd guess I have closer to 250 by now. I've been averaging buying 5 new CDs per week for a while now, and that really taps into a poor man's paycheck.

    Places in Cincinnati to try headphones?

    A fellow native of the nati! Nice to know you! There aren't many places I've heard of where you can check stuff out, but a place called ICB Audio might have a small selection. They major mostly in audio production and DJ equipment, but give them a call, they might have some headphones...

    Ultrasone PROLine 750

    Elluzion, did you survive okay without any hi-fi headphones while those 750s and livewires were away from you?

    Best recorded albums of 2007 / 2008 ?

    Rosetta's Wake/Lift was recorded entirely on analog tape, and it definitely sounds good if you're into that style.

    Do you think wearing full-size headphones in public makes you look like a spaz/geek/weirdo?

    I'm 20...and wear Proline 750s out in public. I've worn my Sr-60s outside too, but my DT990s have never left the apartment. However, the only reason why I was wearing them is my SE530s were stolen and I didn't have anything better to wear. I don't think that the 750s look bad when worn with...

    mobile phone for music?

    The n91 is the only current available Nokia phone worth considering for audio quality. Read this article about new Nokia phone coming out that will have a "dedicated audio chip." It sounds promising. We can only hope that since they're advertising a dedicated audio chip as a feature, that it...

    Ultrasone PRO-750, HFI-780, Denon AH-D2000? Grado Fan Needs Closed Cans

    I have personal experience with the Grado sound (from a set of SR-60 I've had for 3 years) and the Proline 750 which I have had for 2 months and use almost every day. The biggest difference to me is the bass presence that the 750 brings forth. It's HUGE compared to a Grado can! Not huge in a...

    Sharing your music one album at a time

    Livewires - California Dreamin'

    I know this suction seal you guys are talking about, and I can sometimes achieve it, but it seems to create too much air pressure in my ear canal, which to me degrades/distorts the sound quality. My Livewires sit nicely in my ear and isolate great, but there isn't a huge amount of suction that...

    How to listen to sync albums?

    I finally ordered Galilean Satellites, an album by the art/post/astro metal band Rosetta, which I have been meaning to do for quite a while. It is a sync CD, with one sludge metal disc and one ambient disc meant to be played at the same time. So how do I do this? I imported the entire discs...
