    CHIFI LOVE Thread-A never ending IEM-Heaphones-DAP-Dongles Sound Value Quest

    One of my biggest issues with iem's is either having bloated/amped up bass or simply lacking and feeling very thin.. anyone know examples in between these ranges?

    I'm looking at getting some cheap iems, thinking around $20 but don't mind going over a bit if it's a considerable jump up in SQ Was looking at the shozy zero for example, but isolation is important to me as I will be using them in louder environments, so it can't be overly open I don't care...

    ...of mine. I have looked at some popular ortofons, ATs, shure, and even a couple of higher end carts. Something in the mids of the 2M bronze sounds ****ed up to me, but the 2M black sounds dull and closed in compared to the bronze. I certainly prefer the OC9 to the 440MLa. The nagaoka's I...

    Anyone got any suggestions on a good entry stylus/cartridge? I don't want to put an emphasis on any one group, but I really don't want slow/sloppy and muddied lows. I'm not too fussy about the mids so long as it doesn't sound unnatural. I like detailed highs, I dislike the laidback sennheiser...

    ...current before running out of voltage. I mean, you can't put more current through headphones at the same voltage. Ohm's law is [voltage = current * resistance] as it's the same headphone resistance, the voltage and current will be the same.   Then again, I don't know how Ohm's law sounds...

    First mid-fi headphone

    Can the O2 drive a HE-4 (not HE-400) well? I have read it will struggle, but it doesn't add up to me..   I'm also considering the DT880, which I feel the O2 will be great with.. I have more research to do

    First mid-fi headphone

    I'm tossing up between the HD600 and the HE-400 at this stage.   It's hard, because I can't say I'm mainly worried about lows or highs or mids, but I know how to appreciate the lows/highs more than mids.   I'm not a basshead, but I need good bass. Not overpowering bass, I like decent...

    First mid-fi headphone

    Appreciate your input man, has given me a bit to think about. I have some T50RPs that I badly modded and one of the speaker wires disconnected, I haven't been bothered reconnecting it. HE-500 is more than I want to spend.   My main headphones are sennheiser 448? There was tape over three...

    First mid-fi headphone

    I was thinking about the HD600/650. The impression I've got from other peoples impressions' is that the HD600 is fairly even (if lacking in bass), and a reference headphone most people seem to go to, whereas the 650 is a tad warmer?   I've heard good things about the DT880 (600ohm) but I've...

    I thought there was a headphone rec sticky? oh well   Alright guys, so I'm in the market for some headphones. I'm not quite sure what I'm looking for in a headphone: I don't care for the soundstage all that much. I like natural highs; I don't want them boring nor pronounced. I don't it...

    O2 as preamp

    Appreciate the reply mate, very clear.   With that in mind, can I use an RCA to 3.5 from a TT directly into the O2, or do I need to go TT>phono preamp>RCA to 3.5 into O2>headphones? I'm assuming a pre-amp is needed.   Thanks again :)

    O2 as preamp

    Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting into vinyl. From my understanding, I'm going to need to go through a phono preamp into a headphone amp. With this in mind, does going from RCA output (preamp) into a 3.5 jack (amp) degrade/lose any of the source?   I started this thread with the intention of...

    Yes, I meant using pins or the red/white or something that isn't 3.5 jacks on both ends.

    Just listened to some Fostex T50RPs today... WOW!

    The only reason I can justify doing this is if you're going to do something like wje. If you're just doing 3.5/3.5 I wouldn't bother with that.

    I don't think the angled plug will fit. I just tried one of those 90 degree plugs (not neutrik) and the plastic above the plug had a larger girth than the hole. The v-moda cord works wonderfully, and it's only $10 USD+postage (only $5 postage for me)

    Well I opened up my T50RP's again and the white wire attached to the driver came off and I don't own a solder. I was going to ask if anyone knew how to remove sound deadener and that really sticky blue tack stuff but that doesn't seem to matter at the moment any more..
