    These are just so underrated! They're stylish af, light, great sound for the price and closed back. The fact they're out of production is a travesty! Damn your progressive approach b&o! We need to start a petition, better yet we need to write local politicias the world over! Make America H6...

    I've not heard any of the first grou I've not heard the first group of you mentioned, I've heard all of the second group (assuming you're talking about wired momentums) and I prefer the h6 gen1 and gen2 to all of the second group you mention.

    as a pure monitoring can to listen as you track they'd be fine imo but pretty much anything closed will also do   if they're the only thing you'd be listening to your mixes with then I wouldn't recommend it, yes they have a boosted bass but thats not really the reason I wouldn't recommend it...

    I personally didn't like the deckard I bought an oppo ha1 instead of it. As an audio-gd nfb-27h owner who has never heard his h6's sound better that from that unit it pretty easy for me to say buy the master 9! BUT if you're only going to be using with h6's it's WAY overkill, the h6's at a loud...

    New Audio gd NFB-27 Sabre ES 9018 DAC and Headphone Amp

    Has anyone spoken to Kingwa regarding swapping in the ess es9028pro dac in for the 9018, I've read they're easily interchangeable at least in the physically sense but unsure if it will work?

    MrSpeakers ETHER Flow and ETHER C Flow -- Inspired by Electrostatic Headphones

    Don't be afraid to ask at the post office, tell them replacing this these puppies would cost you 2.5k and you need them insured to cover that amount just incase, they should be able to help you out and tell you exactly what things cost. and don't feel bad about telling them what it's worth the...

    I would strongly suggest getting insurance, if in transit something heavier falls on your box or someone drops it, sometimes packages go 'missing' code for stolen by courier or mail handlers, if you don't insure you run the risk of losing 2.5k

    I work from home, sometimes it's hard to get work done at home, all kinds of things might be distract me from getting work done. Sometimes my only chance of being productive is to grab the macbook and head to the local library for a couple of hours. If I had a coffee shop near by that offered...

    So for at tonights meeting I'd like to share the story of the worst coffee I've ever had... twice Twas the day after my birthday a couple of years ago.   I'd had these tabs of LSD in my freezer for months, I'd got them from a guy that looked like the singer from Alice In Chains Layne Staley...

    Oppo HA-1 Impressions Thread

    but does have a balanced headphone out, and a bunch of POWER!     I've not heard the tt or the ps directstream, but the hugo's dac was superior to the ha-1, maybe consider buying a hugo and feeding to the ha-1's amp section, I'd imagine that would be cheaper and more powerful than a hugo...

    I'm in the same boat I used to have the brown v1's which matched my brown frame glasses and my brown leather watch band, then I got black framed glasses so I decided to sell the v1's and get the black v2's now I often think, the brown & black v1's would go well with my black glasses n brown...

    AUDEZE LCD XC

    From a 20 or so minute demo of the m50x while my main set of cans was 2015 XC's my comment at the time was these are a poor mans XC's, the quality is on very different levels but the strengths, weakness's and general presentation are in line mostly I thought, the B&O H6's were also in the middle...

    MrSpeakers ETHER C Review / Announcement - A New Closed-Back Planar Magnetic Flagship from MrSpeakers

    From my point of view I think paying more than the price difference between c non flow and c flow models which is $250 (4pin balanced dum cable model) + shipping is a bad move from the consumers perspective, now understanding a little about the challenges and cost of changing or introducing...

    I suppose the fact you can't hear a relay switching when you plug or unplug a headphone in is also a sign it's outputting to all at once.

    A common question people (like myself) ask about amps with multiple outputs is 'can I plug 2 or more headphones into this at once?' when I got the 27h I wondered, but was too scared of blowing stuff up to try it!   by accident I have come to the find you can indeed plug into the 4pin and the...

    ah thats good news! I can't really help much on powered monitors, personally I'd just save up thousands needed for the event opal's, and during the time it would take to save enough for them I would address where the heck I'd be putting them!

    I'd suggest reading back through this and the master 11 thread, I imagine in the master 11 thread people would've compared the 11 and the schiit gear given they share a dac chip, maybe even email Kingwa and ask him which might suit you

      yep that basically the process I went through to buy. I emailed stating the product I wanted, I told them which power rating version I needed (the 240v in my case) if you want a mod like hdmi to replace rj45 like I did, mention that too, I gave my country and post code (thats called a zip or...
