    iFi audio iDSD Signature - The saga continues!

    AirPods Max

    $549 HandBag lol w/ bluetooth They should’ve surveyed people who actually commute with headphones. We need more headphones that fold up or have twistable headbands. Also, we need more butt cases because apparently that’s the ChiFi trend.

    AirPods Max

    Sooo it seems like the only ppl that’ll buy this are rich ppl with cash to burn and planes to catch. Regular ppl will go with Bose/Sony and audiophiles have a whole lot more options.

    DROP + THX Panda Announcement

    No I don’t use any of those. Just typing out second-hand knowledge. The wireless Modmic only connects to its usb receiver—an aptxLL transmitter, it seems. PCIe wireless adapters can only transmit Windows’ ‘basic’ bluetooth codecs—SBC and aptx, if you have the driver. Additional bluetooth codecs...

    DROP + THX Panda Announcement

    There’s always going to be interference, especially if you live in an apartment complex, but moreso the closer these sources are placed next to each other. I would recommend that you plug the two adapters as far away as you can. Personally, I installed a wireless adapter (Wifi/Bluetooth)...

    A headphone tribute goodbye to Tyll from Innerfidelity

    Last I checked, IF became a shill blog for headphone manufacturers. Gone were the in-depth teardown and reviews... I miss the reviewer who would nerd out over the guts of a headphone and give a thorough analysis of the sound, but still be able to recommend “fun-sounding” headphones. If anyone...

    DROP + THX Panda Announcement

    I doubt it. We’d just have some janky Frankenstein of a headphone. Too many ppl reported buzzing in the left earcup. Imagine that as all one headphone? The buzzing would blow your eardrums!

    DROP + THX Panda Announcement

    Limits are not meant to be surpassed. Either your phone blows up or it rips open a hole in the space-time continuum... Lol jk I wouldn’t worry about it. If it says 8 devices then don’t use more than 8 devices. Simple :gs1000smile:

    Open back headphones.... where's the bass?

    One thing you can do is pad swap. Pad swapping my dt990s with Dekoni Choice Leather really tightened and boosted the sub and mid-bass. Whomp-factor increased tenfold, but at the expense of overall tonal balance. Honestly, like everyone else said, if you really want bass impact then get yourself...

    The Beyerdynamic DT880 Discussion thread

    1400 Ohms is crazy! I saw the graph though... and I checked the calculator and it seems that the BL should be able to power the T1s just fine... Even at 1400 resistance, the T1s are way more efficient than the 880s and will at most need around 5 Volts, while the BL tops out around 10V... Hence...

    Verum Audio - Exciting high performance DIY planar

    I’ve never tried the Verums but they should run fine on the Eco setting. If it gets too loud past 10 o’clock then I’d suggest adjusting the IEM match to Ultra Sensitivity. Best of luck!

    Verum Audio - Exciting high performance DIY planar

    I’m thinking of swapping out the Auteur Hybrid pads I have on my Sundaras, putting those on the Verums, and getting Auteur Perforated Hybrids for the Sundaras. I think that combination will compliment nicely (Sundaras for pure detail, Verums for warm body) but I’ll wait until the Verum 2s come...

    The Hardest hitting Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club")

    Yeah I suppose there should be a clear differentiation when people recommend bassy headphones. Do you want to feel your head rattle off your body, or do you want to feel like your’re being launched into space and your ears are going to explode! People ought to know...

    The Hardest hitting Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club")

    Pad swapping is also an option... it did wonders for my DT990/600ohm! Dekoni Choice Leathers brought up bass and impact to stupid levels but in a good way

    The Beyerdynamic DT880 Discussion thread

    Yeah... I’m not ready to jump into that rabbit hole... I’m happy with my single-ended setup and I don’t have the time or resources to test every combination of amp, tubes and cables for what might just be snake-oiled hoohah. I mean if balanced was truly better then why would manufacturers even...

    Verum Audio - Exciting high performance DIY planar

    I was thinking more on the lines of the actual shape of the pad like Audeze pads, TH600 pads, TX00 pads...I’m guessing the Audeze pads fit best but I’m not sure if the Dekoni pads come with a flap or if it’s only tape... EDIT: I guess it doesn’t matter if I can just stick the thing on but I...

    Verum Audio - Exciting high performance DIY planar

    My iDSD Micro BL disagrees! Also, I wanted to know what third-party pads (Dekonis, Brainwavz, etc.) fit so I can raise the bass.

    what pads should I use for the Verums? It comes with two doesn’t it? What third-party pads fit these?

    Hifiman Sundara (HE400i upgraded, around $500)

    If you want good bass and soundstage then I recommend the DT 990 600 ohms with the Dekoni Choice Leather pads or Elite Hybrids. I haven’t heard them with the Elite Hybrids yet but they theoretically should have bigger bass with em, at least according to Dekoni’s measurements... The only problem...
