    If you still love Etymotic ER4, this is the thread for you...

    I have a question for Etymotic connoisuers: Is the ER-4S EXACTLY THE SAME TECHNICALLY as the ER-4P with ER-4S adapter?   I'm not talking about 'sonic differences', but electrically. I've seen a guy saying that the differences between the two are more than just a resistor/adapter. I don't...

    JVC HA-SZ2000/1000 Impressions Thread

    I think I have a defective pair, at this point.   I'm using my SZ2000 with M55x pads and a Magni 2 and some EQ. The first month the headphones thumped HARD, it was incredible, now it clips and distorts at the same volume level/gain setting/EQ and hits less than the EarPods. Also, it's not that...

    First of all, I LOVE my ER-4S, but...   I find them too bright. The treble is nicely extended and detailed, but there's something about the upper-midrange/treble that causes a weird sibilance and some instruments have too much bite, more than what they have in real life. It's not a recording...

    Are there any real sound differences between the ER-4P with the ER-4S adapter and the ER-4S itself? I really love the ER-4S and I need to know if I will get better sound with just using the ER-4S itself or it will be the same as the ER-4P with the adapter. Thanks!

    ER4S Anniversary Edition with the new detachable cables upgrade + balanced cable for desktop use.   ...A man can dream.

    JVC Customer Service always sucked. Thanks for your honest review, will stay away from them.

    I think it can be fixed, but you need to have knowledge about recabling or how cables work in general or hire up a technician. Or, if you have a warranty, contact JVZ.

    Didn't know you liked the ER-4, man. It is one of the best headphones ever. ;)

    Sennheiser HD 598 Impressions Thread

    Mmm, poor drivers can't be considered High Fidelity though. Well implement Balanced Armature and Electrostatic drivers never distort, even when playing a 20 Hz sine wave at 120 dB SPL. The friendly and inviting tuning of the drivers is just an excuse. Sennheiser just goes the cheap way with the...

    JVC HA-SZ2000/1000 Impressions Thread

    Funny thing is that they charge $400 for it. LOL!   Also, if they are based on the M50X driver, I bet they will distort easily.   From a value standpoint, SZ2000 + M55x pads cannot be beaten. If the Kannon was a 70mm subwoofer + electrostatic for mids/highs hybrid, then it will be...

    New Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)

    I trust this one. Better stay away from the T1 V2. I HATE when a new version of a good headphone come and just ruin the sound. Same thing happened with the STAX SR-007 and the HD 800 with the added distortion in the bass.

    Felt a little woozy after that song, LOL! What are your headphones? Thanks for the suggestion though, I've enjoyed it! This one will be my test track from now on

    Hi. Any sound differences between the original T1 and the T1 V2? Sorry if this question have been asked before, didn't find anything. Thanks.

    At that price point, I'd buy an JDS Labs ODAC RevB. It's usb powered, works with any computer, is completely linear (which is important for basshead cans. You wouldn't want a huge bass roll-off of the like of some boutique audiophile DAC), and is just plain amazing.   For equalization, use...

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

    London Bridge - Fergie (My favorite. Absolutely insane sub-bass. Makes my SZ2000 go nuts). The Building Is On Fire - Lewis (May destroy some subs). Boom Boom Pow - Black Eyed Peas (The original talking intro go lower than 20 Hz and is just a very good tester overall, IMO). Basshead -...

    JVC HA-SZ2000/1000 Impressions Thread

    Can confirm that the rattling/distortion of the SZ2000 is caused by a lack of power. Just connected it to my LG G4 (a low powered device) and I got no bass at all. They wouldn't take my EQ and the useless little current/voltage wouldn't move the SZ2000 subwoofer. This is good news for anyone who...

    JVC HA-SZ2000 for gaming

    They are marvelous for gaming. Decent imaging and soundstage size, amazing immersion. Flawless extension in the bass and pretty good treble extension. SZ2000 are my favorite headphones by far FWIW.

    Hey Hawaiibadboy, my SZ2000 distorts/rattles when reproducing very low bass at high volume, about 75 dB and above with EQ. Other users have experienced this. No amp. Stock pads. Is that normal? Will a good amp fix that problem?

    These have the most crazy sub-bass I've ever heard. Out of the box, they sound pretty balanced but not that impressive. But give them a sub-bass boost and man, you wouldn't go back to flat, 'reference headphones' for those bass-heavy albums. I LOVE my pair. <3   By the way, that EQ looks like...

    Hello. First, I don't want to offend anyone with the following post. I'll try to explain my polarising experience with the ER-4P/S:   I find the sound not that good. Sure, they are very detailed, but in a monitoring way. In my experience, they weren't detailed in a musical way: I can't hear...

    Sennheiser HD 598 Impressions Thread

    The HD 600 is a great all-rounder. Well, if you don't like the Grado comfort and you have the 'one headphone for one genre' mentality, then we're lost. Screw Grados and the X2, and go for the HD 600. They aren't boring at all, they don't lack 'musical' at all. The HD 598 is infinitely worse than...
