    Anything to improve in my setup? Music doesn't sound clean.

    Hey guys.   Currently, I've got FLAC files that I've directly ripped from CDs, running through an HRT Music Streamer II, into a Burson Soloist SL, to a HifiMan HE-500.   I've listened to a friend's Shure SE535, driven by a Nexus 5. The sound was as good as my home setup, listed above. It got...

    At a headphones crossroad. Need help

    Hey guys. Currently, I'm running FLAC files through an SRT Music Streamer II, through a Burson Soloist SL, to a Hifiman HE-500. The sound is very nice and I like it a lot. But I miss the comfort of my previous HD598.   I've seen that the HD600 is on sale for 229$ which is about half of what...

    Good microphone for voice use around $50?

    Hey guys. I've been wanting to upgrade my current, very cheap, microphone. Im looking for a desktop, cardioid microphone around $50, to look alright, and sound good. It'll be used for normal Skype conversations, as well as a little sound recording (but not enough to take it into consideration)...

    Senn HD650 as complimantry for Hifiman HE-500?

    Hello everyone. Hope you're having a good weekend.   I've had my HE-500 for quite a while now, and Im wondering if I should bring it a little sister. Im considering an HD-650, because the sound signature is suppose to be similar, and I always liked Senn's.   How will the HD650 compliment the...

    HiFiMan HE-500 left cup stopped working

    Not at 2 AM. I will try tomorrow, tho. Just check for continuity? In case that I do get continuity, it means the driver is alive but something else might be breaking the line. What could it be?

    HiFiMan HE-500 left cup stopped working

    Hello everyone. My HE-500 are a couple months old. I went downstairs to get some food while I left my amp on with nothing playing. When I got back, my left cup wasn't working. I tried re-plugging everything, to no avail. I switched out the headphones cable from left to right, and it still only...

    HE-500 amp suggestions for my price

    There is literally no place anywhere around me that specialises in audio. No place that sells amps, dacs, or high end headphones or audio at all.

    HE-500 amp suggestions for my price

    I'm not sure about the future, but I want something that will be more future proof than the A2. Im not sure about the kind of amp I want, Ive never used a SS amp, and my little dot Mk3 isnt really good enough of an amp to be a deciding factor, when it comes to deciding between SS and tubes. I do...

    HE-500 amp suggestions for my price

    Not as loud as to hurt my ears, but sometimes you just need a bit more. Is the Burson a good choice overall? Should i pay a bit less and get a brand new Lyr? I like the idea of the burson.

    HE-500 amp suggestions for my price

    So you say the Burson Soloist SL is a good, or a good enough (atleast better) amp than the Lyr?

    HE-500 amp suggestions for my price

        Hey guys. Thanks for the reply. I've read somewhere that the Headamp GS-X is a good amplifier; any opinion on that, given it costs $700? If I can find a Soloist, used, for the same price as the Soloist SL, do I want to pick up the Soloist?   Also, I've noticed they are solid...

    Just received my HiFiMAN HE-500 to replace my HD598. Kind of disappointed

    Thanks alot guys. I feel much better now.  The HD598 was a tiny bit underwhelming as well, and now I understand why. Thank you guys, alot. I'm going to save up for a decent amp now, and enjoy my setup. Do you think I should save up for a better DAC as well? The Music Streamer II gets really...

    Will  it marginally increase the sound quality?

    Just received my HiFiMAN HE-500 to replace my HD598. Kind of disappointed

    Thanks for the reply. The bass seems to 'cut out' when it gets too intense. But overall, there isnt much change, moving from the HD598 to this. Im planning on getting a Lyr, soon.

    Just received my HiFiMAN HE-500 to replace my HD598. Kind of disappointed

    Hey guys.   A week ago, I ordered my HiFiMan through Headroom. Yesterday, I received them, and eagerly plugged them in to my Music Streamer II ---> Little Dot Mk3, and I was sort of overwhelmed.   Music doesn't sound much better, the bass (yep, bass!) is a little bit worse than my HD598...

    Quick help needed, please

    Hey guys. I am just about to press the "Pay" button on the K702 65th, but I just want to make sure its right for me. I am currently using an HRT Music Streamer II > Little Dot 3 > HD598. This gives me pretty much exactly my taste in headphones. How will the K702 65th compare? Will the bass be...

    Is the K702 65th Ann. any different than the Q701\K702?

    If it has more bass, and is any different than the K702, I am pulling the trigger and buying it, if it can compare to the HD650! Is it? Should I?! Thanks!

    Which headphones are better for me?

    Quote: The D2000 is quite hard to find right now, and costs more than the HE-400. Is it worth the difference? It HAS got, mostly, the best reviews ever.. Is an up-step to the HE-500\D5000 worth it? Is there enough difference in the sound to invest in higher priced headphones like those?
