    Suggestions for an open-sounding closed set?

    I was wondering if you all could point me in the right direction, please. I need a pair of headphones with as much of an open sound as I can get while keeping them pretty closed (at least as far as sound leakage to the outside goes). I'm looking for something with a bit of a V-shaped signature...

    Sennheiser HD650 - right speaker producing lower volume. Any ideas?

    It's been a long time since I've posted here last! I've been having some issues with my Sennheiser HD650s, particularly with the right speaker. I'm not sure when the problem started, and they're two years or more out of warranty, so I'm honestly not sure what to do. I've pulled out the cable...

    Modding the iGrado: Suggestions for a recabling?

    Hey all. I'm working on modding my iGrados to get them to sound their best. I've opened them up (despite being new, they seem to not have been hotglued!) and removed the foam backing, but I'd love to do a recabling job while I'm in here. I'd like to know what a good, decent cable option would...

    DT990: Tons of sibilance?

    Has anyone else has this problem? Nearly every song I play has such piercing highs that I end up having to tone down the treble pretty substantially. Admittedly my DT990s are pretty new (between 50-75 hours of break-in, typically with pink noise), but I haven't had this issue with the DT880s...

    Beyer DT 880 sans amp?

    I've decided to upgrade recently, and have been looking hard at the Grado 325is, but I'd like to make sure that I know exactly what I'm doing. My question is pretty simple: how does a Beyerdynamic DT 880 sound without an amp? More specifically, I'll be using a Denon home receiver to power...

    Closing in: A beginner's quest for the right set

    First of all, I would like to thank everyone here for being polite, courteous, and considerate in my various beginner questions. I believe that I am closing on my next (and likely last for a good while) pair of headphones, and I would appreciate any assistance I can get before I make the plunge...

    The next step: Headphones after SR-60

    All right, this one I actually blame on the fabled KSC-75s. I'm a very portable-oriented listener, using (most recently) my Cowon D2 with these babies everywhere I go. The result is that I'm fairly spoiled on their (for the price, I assume) great clarity and sensitivity in the high-end. Coming...
