    Closed back choice-HD280 vs K171 vs AH D1001

    I have K701 for serious home use and Proline 750's for closed home use. My other cans are D1001's and HD280's I dislike the sound of the 280's so much I gave them to my daughter. I use the D1001's for my close environment (office space) closed can listening. Much better IMO than the 280's amp'ed...

    Where is the little country love?

    I spent another couple of hours with the LC3 last night. Trying different headphones. Different media CD/SACD and MP3. I find the amp to be pretty neutral, but will reveal a bad source pretty quickly. I listen to my AKG 701's Ultrasone Proline 750 and my old Senn HD-280's. No problem driving any...

    Where is the little country love?

    Mr.C I just got a LC3 yesterday. You HAVE to get the power supply, as the amp section alone does not have an means of converting AC to DC. I bought mine used from a Head-fi member I've been researching and wanting one of these for about 9 months now, Finally came across a good well taken care of...

    Anyone have one they are thinking of selling. Please feel free to contact me. I've been wanting to try this amp for a while now, and finally have some play money to do so.

    Can someone confirm likeness ah-d1001 & Aurvana Live?

    +1 $210 for Denon AH-D1000/1001 WAY WAY WAY overpriced. I got mine for 83 shipped. I've been looking into D2000's and 200 seems to be about the going rate for them.

    Denon AH-D2000 vs. Sennheiser HD580 vs. Sennheiser HD600!

    Very good review..but for the record..Donald Fagen really isnt Jazz. Pop would be a better Genre, but certainly not jazz.

    Headphone choice, can't decide

    Ultrasone makes some excellent cans. Unfortunately there 100 dollar(ish) are two models, and dont seem to be much to write home about. The 780's suggested MSRP around $280 ish (off the top of my head) again Sub 100 dollar cans Denon 1001's AKG K81 Dj, Audio Tech's ATH-Fc700's or The Sen HD280...

    Headphone choice, can't decide

    Denon AH-D1001's are a good set of cans in that price range that will work well for what you want. IMO. The K701's NOT a good choice of cans for a work if noise Isolation is a concern and the Fiio wouldnt drive them (well) anyway.

    AKG's Made In China Question

    While mbd2884 did answer your question he was rather blunt about it. Yes AKG's are designed and engineered in Austria. Parts come from Austria,and some parts from China. It depends on the the can in question. The Final assembly point is really nothing more than a business decision made to cut...

    Denon AH-D1001...OMG

    Burn in is real.Just ask any AKG K701 owner.Or Ultrasone 780 or 750 owner. It's a PITA to me now. 300 Hours for my 701's and 250ish for my Proline 750's And now another 100 or so for the D1001's..

    Ultrasone PRO900

    All this fuss about what headphones look like. When I have My Proline 750's on my head I dont care what they look like, and I cant see the faces of the people gawking or laughing around me, because my eyes are closed enjoying the music. Same with my K701's
