    Four cans in my cart: DT990, SR225, ESW9, D2000

    I have sold my HFI 780 (sounded okay, miss em slightly) and ES7(honky mids).  I retained my SR60 and HD485, half because they're not worth much and half because I like them.   I just got my first IEM, the UE 500, which oddly enough I really enjoy with the long untouched PA2V2 for flavor...

    Been out of the game, need some hind/in-sight

    Hey guys,   Years ago when I got into headphones, the top cans were the K701, HD595, HD650, RS1, etc.  I get in and out every couple years and my last purchase was the HFI 780, which I'm quite pleased with.   I just noticed how dramatically the price has dropped on the 595 and 701, and...

    Impressions: a week with the HFI-780

    Seven days ago these phones were delivered. Including listening time, I think they have over 100 hours of burn in. From various CD players to the Penguin Royal, or the Sansa Clip, these things deliver exactly what I wanted plus more. I'm noticing new things in music I've been listening to for...

    I've had enough low end cans.

    I have some praise and some complaints. SR60 have great energy but not enough bass. ES7 sound good but comfort is a problem. HD485 are comfy with big bass but it swallows the treble. PortaPro (probably my favorite flavor) need precision. All of 'em do, really. I have a couple cans in...

    a tale of two pcdp's

    Today i went to circuit city and put down $40 for a psyc (d-ne320). sound's all right with eq, but distorts at higher volumes. this sound normal to anyone? does a pcdp need burn in? i have an old aiwa xp-r220 which sounds great, never distorts, and has defeatable EQ but i was fearing at five...

    New boy with some new toys

    A couple days ago i got a delivery from J&R, my new sportapro's and portapros. I've been using the Ports, they have between 25 and 30 hours of burn in em. They're pretty good, but do have deficiencies. No harsh tones, like the 75's had, and more bass, but it seems to have less articulation. The...
