    Sennheiser RS160, 170 ,180... Anyone?

    I LOVE my RS 185, jump from RS 180 when it comes to improved clarity, cosmetics, comfort, and construction.   It has more solid feel than the RS 180.

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    I completely agree.  I thought I could sell my HD 800 and keep my HE400i for budget reasons but HD 800 destroys the HE400i out of the water.  It completely outclasses it in every category!

    160 and 170 are leatherette, 180 is velvety.  I just bought the RS 180 and I love it! :)

    Sennheiser RS160, 170 ,180... Anyone?

    Could you tell me performance in detail between RS 180 vs RS 220?  And you had no signal loss issues with RS 220 which many Amazon reviewers had?

    Sennheiser RS160, 170 ,180... Anyone?

    More I think about it I am happy that I chose RS 180 for $200. RS 220 has issues and RS 175 or 185 is not discounted and there is no performance jump. I thought about RS 170 being closed ear not to disturb my family for night movie viewing but went for performance and price difference was minimal.

    Sennheiser RS160, 170 ,180... Anyone?

    I also thought about RS220 but if you read reviews at Amazon, it has lots of bad reviews for dropouts and bad digital optical connection. That's why I chose RS 180 and am happy with it.

    Sennheiser RS160, 170 ,180... Anyone?

    Due to new RS line just coming out, RS 160, 170, and 180 are in great prices for clearance.  Just ordered RS 180 for $190 new.  I was torn between RS 180 or the all new RS 175 for $240.  Ultimately I chose 180 because it was $50 cheaper but assuming it has better sound quality than 175, although...

    Uplifting Trance reccomendations

    This is not an Uplifting Trance, but just picked up DJ Tieso Elements of Life Bluray Audio(no pictures), recorded in LPCM 2.0 24bit/96Khz and DTS-HD 24bit/96Khz. This is the best sounding trance recording I've ever heard so far.   BTW, I am a big time techno fan.  I own hundreds of techno CDs. :)

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    I owned HD 700 and Beyer T1, and last week I finally got the HD 800.  As soon as I put it on and played a CD, I was in another world!  What a piece of gear!  I am in heaven! I just ordered Sennheiser HDVD 800 Amp, I hope it's a good match for it!

    Looking at the Sony UDA1/S amp/dac

    So it can drive 600ohm load.  Loud enough?  I was very tempted to buy it last few days.  One seller at Ebay has it for $420 including shipping new!  But got little greedy and ordered Sennheiser HDVD 800 Amp instead today!

    Should the HD 800 factory cable be replaced?

    So I barely have enough to purchase a used HD 800 and 6moons audio review of it does state that stock cables doesn't do justice.  As a semi-audiophile, I think cables have limited improvement.  I'd rather spend money on better equipment than buying these costly high end cables.  If it does...

    Rank the Headphones that You Own.

    I strongly agree with you HD700 is a great headphone. Far better than HD600 and light years away for comfort. It sounds slightly dark side but I think it's a great set of cans. Underrated.

    Looking for closed headphones

    I also am looking for closed headphones from not disturbing my family.  Looks like your budget is higher than mine :) I have read good things about Beyerdynamic T70.  I am a big Beyerdynamic and Sennheiser fan.  I own the T1, but it's open.

    Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread

    HD 600 was my beginning journey model of this hobby.  Loved the details, price, and quality(although a little too plastic).   Only minor gripe is that I have a cone shaped head and it becomes uncomfortable from the center of the headband pressing top of my head.   Now I see that some models have...
