    Oluv on Youtube proves we can't hear a difference between a free smartphone DAC and a $1000 AMP

    Interesting this makes me feel very bad about spending $210 for a Headphone Amp and DAC setup I feel very much stupid now and I should have stuck to my motherboard Audio and my Samsung S8 built in stuff.

    Hey anybody here has gotten a chance to try the new Asus Xonar SE? it says 116DB SNR and the Xonar DG says 104 DB SNR What I can tell you is in the past I once had a Xonar DX 112DB SNR and the sound was far better than my Xonar DG that I "upgraded" to only because the Xonar DG had a headphone...

    Are there any benefits to buying high OHM headphones?

    Like 300 ohm sennheiser or 250 ohm beyer or 80ohm beyer or 30 ohm   What exactly are the benefits?   If a company can make the same headphones in 30ohm why would they bother making it in 250 ohm?   Kinda like how the 32 ohm beyer on Amazon is cheaper than the 250 ohm version why would...

    Holy *** a quality DAC/AMP actually makes a big difference over the Xonar DG

    I asked this question for  years on head fi and on reddit and I never got a straight answer I was looking for, is it worth really upgrading a asus xonar dg sound card? how good could something else really be? what is the point if the human hearing won't notice it? guess what I got like a 20%...

    Who wants to help me understand Imaginary Noise?

    Top head fi members here have said the science behind SNR of 124db means it is essentially useless since you will become deaf if you actually listened to music at 124db and nobody does that. And that the only reason we don't have 200db snr chips is because we cant listen to 200db sounds, this...

    Is it really worth upgrading my Xonar DG sound card?

    Looking to upgrade my Sennheiser HD 555 after 8 years but WHAT TO BUY?

    The pads are deteriorated badly and can no longer connect, original pads are $34 USD. My HD 555 are hard to beat, they are modded with the rubber removed from inside the cups that now gives it a HD 595 sound quality. I was really looking to spend around $100 USD or less.   I also bought this...

    Why anyone would you choose a closed back headphone if leakage is not an issue?

    I am not talking about sound leakage I mean besides that?   What kind of sonic performance does closed back produce really? I listen to both closed back and open and honestly I don't see why anyone would choose a closed.   BUT maybe there is something I am missing.

    Why not just use an Equalizer instead of buying a more expensive headphone?

    I see it all the time people buy headphones for darker or brighter etc etc.   Why not just use the EQ to adjust the tone?   Now I am aware that in the case of clarity and soundstage etc its all about the headphone design. But many of the problem people claim to face with headphone seem to be...

    What makes a $1000 Tube Amp better than a $35 Tube Amp?

    So Amazon sells tube amps for $35, made with Japanese Capacitors etc. People swear by them.   So i really need to know what about the $1000 amp that makes it better? how does the sound change exactly? And are these changes noticeable in a blind test? by someone 40 years of age and older?

    Why do you hate Lana Del Rey?

    If you were to ignore pointless things like how many men she slept with etc or how rich daddy is. OR the fact that she can't actually sing, what is wrong with her?   Because her studio work is a masterpiece. Once she has her computer enhancements her voice is godly.   I especially like her...
