    Quake! Come on, you know you loved it! And I mean Quake 1 and Team Fortress too

    Oh yes, those were the days :D I played Quake 1, or actually Quakeworld, for ever and ever. I was decent at 4v4 clan play, but I was one of the top duelers and above all 2v2 players in my region (northern europe). Those crazy Swedes somehow always beat you though, the skill was just insane. I...

    Sony MDR-1000X

    Ok, that's very helpful, thanks. I was under the impression that you needed to use those radio things for multiple headphones. Looks like I have some research to do :)

    Sony MDR-1000X

    Hi guys,   Question on LDAC: Does anyone know if LDAC supports or will support multiple headphones for home theater? That's quite a bit of bandwith, should be possible…   I want to get a set of wireless headphones that are great for traveling but also works for watching movies with the wife...

    1964 Ears Adel IEMs

      Yeah, someone else told me already, thanks!   I guess I'm just used to think of a church like a serene, austere place. In fact it makes sense for traditional church buildings as well, since the extreme acoustic reverb can make performing more difficult without in-ears.

    Thanks! If you like a bit of bass and looking for something in this range, I'd much prefer the Fidelio S2 which has tighter bass, much better mids and responds well to EQ.

    I've read a lot of your reviews and I'm just stunned at the amount of work you put in, so I had to post a message to say thank you and you rock! This stuff is very helpful for anyone who owns less than 100 headphones and who is trying to make sense of the ever-growing earphone market.

    Shure KSE1500 Review - Shure KSE1500 Sound Isolating Electrostatic Earphones

      That would be Blue Hawaii SE, http://www.head-fi.org/t/439657/headamp-blue-hawaii-special-edition and Stax SR-009. Arguably the best (and possibly most expensive) sound out of a headphone south of the new $50k Sennheiser Orpheus.

      Are you saying that for JH Layla you prefer the MBP to the Mojo?

    ONKYO DP-X1 | Dual Sabre Dacs | Balanced | Sabre BTL Amp | MQA | DSD 256 | Android 5 |

    How do you guys reckon the dp-x1 compares value-wise to ak100ii for $460 over at massdrop? That's a pretty competitive price.   The drop ended now, was limited to 75 units that flew off the shelves, but there's already a lot of requests for another go.

        Take advantage of the potential HD800s/HD800S confusion, and you might get a good price for your HD800s :D

    The Astell & Kern AK240

    1699,- on massdrop. About 30% off seems like a good deal even in the now crowded high-end DAP market.

    Shure KSE1500 Review - Shure KSE1500 Sound Isolating Electrostatic Earphones

        I'm thinking along these lines as well, kse1500 or mojo+ciem. Though not sure about which ciem it would be.   From what I gather, the Chord Mojo pairs better with K10 or Layla/Angie, so I'm not as sure as you are. The Mojo+ADEL combo works fine apparently, but I haven't seen anyone...

    1964 Ears Adel IEMs

    Just something that ocurred to me...   Did someone try yet to exact volume match (with fancy gadgets) an ADEL iem to other iems, and compare the listening experience? To see if there's anything to the claims of increase in percieved loudness, I mean.

    Shure KSE1500 Review - Shure KSE1500 Sound Isolating Electrostatic Earphones

    Don't see why an iphone would be better than an android phone for transport? There are several viable alternatives. The Sony z5 compact comes to mind. In fact, you'll get to store a lot more high-res files on an android phone, since some allow you to use SD cards, while iphones are limited to...

    Shure KSE1500 Review - Shure KSE1500 Sound Isolating Electrostatic Earphones

        Maybe your money would be better spent doing something about your terrible commuting situation!   Life is short... I can't imagine spending 4 hours per day getting back and forth, sounds terrible :( Where do you work? Can't you live closer to your job?

    Audeze almost black-friday sale

    Guys, I don't mean to be a party pooper or anything, but how is 20% on B-stock a deal? It's the least I'd expect for a product with some kind of minor cosmetic defect.

    The cost is time

    That's another way of looking at it I guess.   If I buy the new Shure electrostatics, just as an example, and use them one hour per day on average for 5 years (both somewhat conservative values), it would cost me 1 hour of work to listen for about 20 hours. Or, to put it another way, I'd have...

    The cost is time

    I apologize in advance for a slightly philosophical post, given the inherent materialistic nature of this forum.       How many hours of work did you have to put down to get your most expensive rig? That is, how many times would you have to multiply your hourly salary, minus taxes, to arrive...

    LG V10 : New ESS Chipped Flagship Android Phone from LG

      But they're mid-to-top-tier IEMs, they should be more than good enough?

    LG V10 : New ESS Chipped Flagship Android Phone from LG

        Well, if we assume that Slaviola has critical listening skills, and that no technical error comes into play only with his IEMs plugged in (unlikely?), we must also assume that the v10s DAC is not making any difference. Right?   I can't find the error in my logic, please explain.
