    Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless

    I disagree, they sound completely flat with stock pads, no bass whatsoever. It's easily fixed with aftermarket pads however. This is what I purchased (except from US store). https://www.amazon.co.uk/Brainwavz-ROUND-Replacement-Memory-Earpads-Black/dp/B072PPPWBF/ You'll have to cut excess...

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless

    I had both, I sold the Sony 1000XM3 and kept the Amiron Wireless. For my use Amiron was a superior choice. Caveat - I had to switch earpads on Amiron to Brainwavz memory foam pads, and I also had to bend yokes a bit for better fit to get the best sound out of Amiron. Without those mods Amiron...

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless

    I got this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B072PPPWBF/ The earpad opening was a bit too small, so I had to carefully trim extra pleather with pedicure scissors which took me all of 5 minutes and I was good to go. To be honest, I would not recommend Amiron Wireless with stock earpads. I...

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless

    I've never listened to 1770's, but I found Amiron Wireless to have exceptionally poor seal. With aftermarket memory foam earpads they have plenty of slam down below. Brainwavz earpads are like $25, totally worth it if you want more base IMO.

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless

    I wouldn't use either Amiron Wireless or Sony 1000XM3 for the gym. Amiron Wireless is heavy and has very loose fit, I'd be afraid of them falling off my head, Sony 1000XM3 would be secure enough to stay put, but they get very warm even when not exercising, if you're going to be breaking sweat in...

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless - New ear pads to improve bass?

    Well, I couldn't wait so I ordered Brainwavz regular size memory foam ear pads from Amazon for $23 yesterday. They came today, I installed them and I'm pleased to say they bring much needed improvement to Amiron Wireless. Isolation is much improved, I can finally hear the base, they actually...

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless - New ear pads to improve bass?

    Anybody? Just got Amiron Wireless today and noticed the same problem. They sound really good so long as they have a good seal. Unfortunately for me they do not seal very well, a) the yolks do not allow enough movement so there is too much pressure at the top of the earpad, and a rather large...

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    I did some more testing, the static/crackling noise only happens when 3D mode is in Manual/Auto. With 3D mode off in 2CH there is just regular background hissing, but no static/crackling. Off to bed, yawn...

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    Well, I spent a few hours listening to music and gaming comparing it to my HD650. Gaming Personally I did not find 3D feature compelling, so I switched it off. Compared to my HD650 these have a lot more treble, and to be honest I simply get too tired playing games in these, the amount of treble...

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    Well, I had the most pleasant surprise waiting for me at home - a package Audeze with the new copper pair of Mobius. I gave them a quick spin, and I like the sound so far. Unfortunately, the dreaded hiss is there and it's very noticeable when nothing is playing. To be honest I do not notice it...

    More than likely SFC will be responsible for getting the package into the US at which point USPS will take over and deliver domestically. This is actually very common when shipping internationally.

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    Every piece of sound equipment, especially with amplifier in the path, is going to have some kind of noise floor. My primary desktop headphone rig has an active amplifier in the path - an Objective O2, and it has inaudible noise floor. My living room speakers are being driven by an active...

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    Yes, I do. When I turn on my O2 I hear nothing from my HD650. They are completely black. And every single setup I have had in the past 15 years have been like that. I expect the same from any headphone in 2018.

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    Eh, what is active headphone? Most audiophiles here use some sort of DAC (dedicated USB or a soundcard like Asus Xonar), dedicated amplifier, and then headphones. The only difference here is that Mobius managed to integrate all of these components (DAC, AMP, Headphones) into a single package. I...

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    LOL I'm bummed about these reports of white noise/hissing. My last setup that had a background noise was portable cmoy 15 years ago. Every setup I have had since then which includes PPAv2, O2, Fiio9 E17+E09K, cheapo Monoprice desktop headphone DAC+AMP were all hiss free. They were all dead...

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    Regarding mic, I really wish Audeze went with retractable boom mic on Mobius. I'll be using Mobius at work with 80% music and 20% skype calls usage. While it's better than my current setup, having boom mic in my face when I'm just listening to music is incredibly distracting, and while I could...

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    I get that. What I meant to ask, can I plug in the cable into USB 2.0 port in the motherboard and get full 7.1 surround sound? Or do I need the bandwidth of USB 3.0 port?

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    If connected to PC through USB cord, do these headphones need an actual USB3 port, or will USB2 port work just fine?

    Axpona 2018 Head-Fi Meetup + Discount code

    Are these events good for auditioning headphones? I'm looking to get a pair of closed over-the-ear headphones that are going to be as good or better than my HD650's with similar sound signature. I was looking at MrSpeaker AEON Flow Closed and Audeze LCD-XC and both will be at the expo. However...

    [No longer available] Sennheiser HD650 BRAND NEW (Only available for a few days read inside)

    Did not realize they're sold for less than $375 online. I'm curious are you talking about ebay/shipped from Hong Kong kind of thing, or are you talking about authorized Sennheiser resellers with full warranty?
