    Raal Ribbon Headphones - SRH1A

    It’s the trade off you get for the headphones being so good at everything. It’s pretty easy for me to get the driver to clip with any modern electronic/pop/hip hop. For this reason I run the headphones crosses over to a sub for sessions where I want to listen at louder levels.

    My experience with different music players.

    Thanks to @manueljenkin for introducing me to yet another obscure music player. Did a little ABing of PlayPcmWin to winyl and musicbee. PlayPcm is definitely a step up in terms of incisiveness and textural rendering. Images are more solid than either of the other players. The edges on...

    FS: WyWires Platinum Headphone Cable (1/4 TRS to mini-xlr) fits Audeze, ZMF, Hedd w/hd600 adapter

    I am selling this beautiful 5 foot long WyWires Platinum headphone cable, as my main headphones are not compatible. The cable was made late 2018 and is in perfect, like-new, condition. The build is fantastic and I would not hesitate to purchase from Alex again as his work is fantastic. This...

    My experience with different music players.

    Hey Manuel, thanks for the detailed reply! The Jot R does indeed have a baffle compensation switch that makes up for the lack of bass with the OB design. The main weakness with the Raals is the lack of headroom the driver has in the low end before it clips. I listen to a good bit of...

    My experience with different music players.

    Getting this thread back on track... I've been doing more experimenting since I've gotten new headphone/amp combo. I'm using Raal SR1As with a JOT R now. Every time I make changes to my system I feel like my preferences for setup change. Is this an effect of more accurate equipment showing...

    My experience with different music players.

    I’ve been messing around with HQ Player this week and I really like it as well. When upsampling to 32/768 or dsd256 I think it clearly sounds much better than winyl. But with no oversampling I don’t think I could tell a difference. But that is the entire point of hq player. How much...

    My experience with different music players.

    There’s a thread on the Jplay forum about it, that’s about all the info I could find. It’s just a utility that makes some registry tweaks that supposedly makes things sound better. I don’t think the author goes into much detail on how it works.

    My experience with different music players.

    I agree with OP. I tried out winky recently and I really like it. Cleaner and easier on the eyes than foobar Sounds substantially better to me than foobar as well. And I’ve used foobar for years with every possible combination of drivers/settings/oversampling. Winyl just sounds better...

    WyWires - Can I Change Connectors?

    Yessssir. The Wywires cables are amazing, and being able to use one cable with all of your headphones makes the value that much better. I think double helix and Norne do something similar. Hell I wasn’t sure if it was an option either until I asked Alex about it.

    PRAT Speed fullbodied unamped: YAMAHA 220 or Shure 1540 or Fostex 600 ?

    Can't speak for the other phones, but the Yamaha's do perfectly fine without an amp, and they have great bass.
