    Introducing NightOwl Carbon & NightHawk Carbon. Next Generation Headphones from AudioQuest

    @GTMarauder46 I'm in the same boat. I love the headphones, most comfy ones I own, but good Lord I do NOT like the cable. Did you find anything decent for cable replacement?

    My bad, I meant that you were the new member who plays on PC. WC3 was my jam! I can't wait for the Remaster.

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    I had totally forgotten about JDS Labs amps. The original Element was my second fave amp that I tested at a meet in DC many years ago. Would the Element II combo unit be too much/ overkill for what im wanting to do? I know it's at the upper tier for what im looking to spend. I bought 2 sets...

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    The review was for the Magni 3+.

    You’re the new PC gamer, right? If so, I’m in the same boat. I just got my new cans yesterday and they sound anemic plugged into my motherboard. Strangely enough they sound a tad better hooked into my keyboard’s audio pass through, but it’s still pretty bad. Not sure what I’m going to do at...

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    So, yesterday I thought I was going to purchase a Magni+ until I read a single review stating that it can bring out some harshness, up top, in cans. I’ve returned more than one pair of headphones due to sibilance. I’m very sensitive to it. Maybe that’s why I liked tube amps so much, but I cannot...

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    I’ve owned two desktop amps before, but sold them off quite a while ago. One was a Valhalla and the other was a dockable FiiO (though I forget the model right now). I loved the way tubes sound for music, but not gaming, which was my primary usage. I sadly had to sell my tubes due to my kid...

    Would something like a Dragonfly Cobalt work for PC gaming with a x2HR? Or should I be looking at something more traditional like a Schiit stack?

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    How do these sound with an Audioquest Dragonfly Cobalt? Worth it, or should I be looking at something else?

    When I was demo’ing headphones a few years ago I had the chance to try the HD700. They were way, way too bright for my tastes. I sold all my gear a year ago (give or take). I didn’t love the dt770 either. The x2HR are on sale for 100 from Amazon right now. I liked the original x2 well enough so...

    Pulled the trigger on the x2HR. Any good amp suggestions? I want to keep them fun, but still give me access to the footstep bonus:)

    Well, thanks a lot MLE (@MadLustEnvy) this is the second headphone I've purchased from you (well sort of anyway). I've been looking for something wireless that would work with PC gaming, and well, after watching their videos and reading your p/review I backed the Mobius. I'm hoping it's what I'm...

    Are there any decent wireless headphones for PC gaming? Preferably without a Mic or with a removable Mic? Budget under 150.

    Thoughts on Logitech G613 and G903?

    I recently debated the same thing as OP. Got a G900 mouse (predecessor, without wireless charging) almost a year ago. Love it. Wish I'd waited a few months for the 903, but oh well. Got a G613 over Black Friday for half price, and I like it. It's a nice keyboard, but not perfect. I love being...

    Looking for Over-ear, closed back, for under 150. Suggestions please?

    So I'm purchasing these as a joint gift for my father's birthday. He is turning 67 and just retired. Budget is likely 150, and he needs an over ear design, with a closed back. That way he can drown out the super loud TV watching that my mother does, and not disturb her in the process with his...

    OFFICIAL: 2017 North Carolina Meet

    Ugh. I don't come to head-fi in a while and then do, just to find there was a meet mere days ago 15 minutes from me. Bah! I second the idea for a fall meet!

    Has anybody used the Nighthawk for gaming? If so, what do/did you think?

    Has anybody used the Nighthawk for gaming? How is it for clarity, sound stage, and positional cues?

    I have an Xbox 1S and a new Smart TV with Bluetooth capability. I'm curious about a Bluetooth headphone that could not only pair to the TV, but also either pair with the X1S or plug into the jack on an Xbox controller for audio/mic purposes. Is there anything like this that wouldn't require a...

    Sony's new flagship 2014 - MDR-Z7

    I'm about an hour west of Philly. I auditioned both at Worldwide Stereo. I didn't like the HD700, much too bright and far too uncomfortable for me, but I have large ears. YMMV.
