    WTB: Sennheiser HD580 Precision

    I'm looking for an HD580 that doesn't have raised nameplates. The price depends on the condition. Needs to be shipped to Norway.

    Has anyone used Pro iCan with K1000?

    I have K1000, but I've barely used it. My most powerful amp is Lyr 2.

    Looking for warm tubes for Lyr 2 - $150

    I currently use stock tubes, which sound neutral or bright depending on the headphones. I bought Lyr 2 mainly for HE400i and HD700 because it was strongly recommended for these headphones and other headphones I was looking at at the time had low impedance. I have TH-X00 Ebony ordered and I plan...

    Looking for a budget amp to use with Astro MixAmp Pro TR to drive AKG K712 Pro

    I've read people use an amp with the MixAmp to power this headphone, and I'm on a tight budget, so I'm looking for an amp around $50. I'm thinking of FiiO A1 or Topping NX2.

    Over-ear, closed-back headphones for gaming - $50-70

    I'm looking for an over-ear, closed-back headphone for gaming. Soundstage, imaging, clarity, detail retrieval and separation are priorities. No bass or treble preferences. The budget is $70 if V-MODA BoomPro is compatible and $50 if the mic isn't compatible. The only ones I've found so far that...

    Wired and exciting sports IEMs - 300 USD

    I currently use Jaybird X2 and I can't stand them anymore as they sound flat and immensely boring to listen with. I want fast, tight and punchy bass and the vocals presented alongside the bass, not recessed. I'm not sure how much bass I want, only that it doesn't overpower the mids. I'm not...

    Looking for specific headphones

    I'm looking for over-ear, open-back headphones with a wide and deep soundstage, accurate imaging, neutral bass, and emphasized treble. I'm trying out headphones for gaming, so this is the sound signature I want to try out next. I'm looking for something cheaper than the HD700. I use Magni 2...

    Headphones, mic and DAC or amp for £100

    I told someone I know not to get a gaming branded headset and instead buy from a company that specializes in high-fidelity headphones, but at only £100 ($110), I'm starting to think that an all-in-one deal might be better by going with HyperX Cloud II, which is from what I've gathered, one of...

    Headphones (+ amp and DAC) for recording and editing

    I’m looking for closed-back, over-ear headphones for recording and editing. I want them to be transparent, not colored. They need to be durable. I'm considering Audio-Technica ATH-M70X and Focal Spirit Professional, but I'd like to know if there are other headphones I should consider. I've...

    [Gaming] Creative Soundblaster X7 or Schiit Magni 2 and Modi 2 for AKG Q701?

    I'm in doubt about which one I should go for, Creative Soundblaster X7 (not limited edition) or Schiit Magni 2 and Modi 2. Some have described AKG Q701 as a bit bright and the Schiit stack as a bit cold, so this combo sounds somewhat concerning. I haven't used the Q701s before. This will be my...

    Questions about converting Sennheiser PC363D's USB surround sound card to optical/S/PDIF/toslink

    Is it possible to convert Sennheiser PC363D's USB surround sound card to optical and use it with consoles? Would I lose sound quality? Are there particular convertors I would need or I should avoid?

    Looking for a particular mount for my mic (see pic) - any suggestions?

      I'm looking for a mount similar to the one in the picture so that I can position my mic, Blue Yeti, similarly, but I'm not sure what it's called. It's not a locking yoke mount, is it? They seem to only come with microphones, and, otherwise, don't show up in relation to mics much... I suppose...

    Any advice on choosing a good mic foam cover for reducing ambient noise?

    What should I look for when choosing a foam cover for reducing ambient noise? Do some do it better than others? There are huge price gaps, like, from 5 to 100 dollars.   My microphone is Blue Yeti, if that's relevant.

    Recommend a USB desktop mic on par with Yeti/Seiren that's much less sensitive and has a mute option?

    The Blue Yeti is way, way too sensitive. It literally picks up a pin drop and makes sounds so much louder, except my voice, of course... that's for some reason moderate, even with the volume at highest. I have the gain level at lowest to reduce ambient noise. The cardioid mode is a joke, it...

    Would this setup work: Console + DAC/amp + Y splitter + headphones and 3.5mm jack to jack auxiliary cable to Blue Yeti?

    I'm looking for a desktop microphone I can use with consoles while my headphones are connected to my DAC and amp (Astro MixAmp, Schiit Magni and Modi). I'm interested in Blue Yeti, but I don't want to connect my headphones to my controller or to the mic, so I'm wondering if this setup works on...

    RHA T20 or Sennheiser IE80?

    I'm looking for IEMs around 300 USD, and from what I've found, RHA T20 or Sennheiser IE80 seem to be the best ones. But I wonder which one is best for the music I listen to, which is mostly rock, metal, industrial, electro, and some pop and epic music. The bass, soundstage and high-resolution...

    Which Schiit amp and DAC should I choose?

    I'm looking for an amp or a DAC or a combination of these to use with PS3, PS4 and Xbox One, and I see many people use/recommend a combination of Schiit Modi, Magni and Bifrost, but I don't know which amp and DAC to go for. My headphones are ATH-AD700X and Fidelio X2.

    Recommend an amp/DAC setup (not Astro MixAmp) for console gaming?

    I'm looking for an amp or amp and DAC setup for games only, on PS3, PS4 and Xbox One, with main concern on positional audio.  I'd like to use it with a mic (I have Antlion ModMic). I'd greatly appreciate volume control (and chat control, but I don't think it's much of an option for me). I'd...
