    Fostex T60RP

    Thanks for digging up that info! Seems like this is going to be a bit higher-end than the previous TX0RP models. The 4.4mm cable is a nice option, it would be nice for that to become a standard!

    V-MODA XS - V-MODA M-80s upgraded - Pictures and more! [Discussion, Questions] #FirstthreadtocoverXS

    It's safe to expect sonic improvements over the M-80.  I'm sure the update was to bring the on-ear model in line with the M-100, in terms of features and overall detail/clarity.   V-Moda does do pre-orders, and they're always fantastic! I pre-ordered the M-100 from them. Although it was $10...

    Is there a newsletter or society for people who believe that headphone amplifiers are largely redundant scam products?

    OP, two issues I can think of in your setup:   1. You're amping the HD 800 with a freakin' O2. Although some say that combo works well, and it should certainly be better than your laptop's amp, I doubt the O2 is driving the HD800 to it's potential (keep in mind, I've never heard the HD800)...

    Hifiman HE-400i and HE-560: From CES to Pre-Launch

    Off topic, but that's FREAKIN GORGEOUS    Also, thanks Jerg for finding the article on reviewed.com! I had just stopped scouring the internet for info when they published that.

    Show us your Head-Fi station at it's current state. No old pictures please...

    Nice setup. The Beyer DT models can go for miles with DAC, amp, and cable upgrades.

    Hifiman HE-400i and HE-560: From CES to Pre-Launch

    And Steve G didn't even hear them at CES; Hifiman gave them to him right before the show  But they are in fact demoable at the show. Seriously guys! Get over to that booth!

    Blue Microphones entering Headphone space with Mo-FI

    I definitely see switches and knobs in the teaser video.  Which likely means active processing in the headphones   Blue, I trust you guys so much, don't screw this up.

    Hifiman HE-400i and HE-560: From CES to Pre-Launch

    Thanks so much, Jerg! Those do look like the actual product rather than renders, and the headband looks significantly more comfortable than in the Cnet photos.

    NEW Vali Schiit AMP!!!

        And I'm guessing it would have to go on the top of the stack...... the Magni already got the air around it toasty after a while running, I'd imagine this'll get MUCH hotter.

    The Great Grado Experiment (4 tonewoods tested, more to come!)

    Good review! Interesting to see that the Walnut came out on top. I'd love to see how Mahogany compares.

    Bought Dt770's off ebay...

    A lot of headphone manufacturers just put the L-channel/R-channel wires into one of those wraps (Grado, for instance). Beyer could have done the three-wires on the older models, and this arrangement on the newer ones (or vice-versa). This, possibly, or...... this

    Bought Dt770's off ebay...

    B&H, so mine was definitely legit  That picture was not of mine, mine has since been sold, but why do you think that there should be three wires? Are you thinking left/right/ground?

    Why are my Shenneiser HD 518 so bad? Do i need a DAC + Amp?

    Whoah, haven't heard someone call the GNex that since before launch!      As for the headphones, perhaps you just don't like the sound signature? A good amp (better than your soundcard) is definitely needed to drive them to their potential, but keep in mind that you may just prefer a...

    NEW Vali Schiit AMP!!!

    I used those for my Magni! They worked well (still couldn't help the fact that the Modi was too dam loud). For the brief period of time that I used them, however, I never had a critical session, so I have no idea just how much it affects the sound signature, but for the few times I did use them...

    Electronic Music Exchange (House, DnB, Dubstep, etc.)

    Should have known that you read that thread  I have too. Where that article holds no water is that the sample rate determines how fast the bits are sampled. To add to your analogy that sample rate is like resolution, bit-depth is the quality of the media being played. (44.1 could be a DVD...

    Electronic Music Exchange (House, DnB, Dubstep, etc.)

    Yeah, it being 44.1 khz really defeats the purpose of the added bit-depth, but bit-depth is definitely important. It's where the actual added detail is. It just doesn't make a difference in this case because it's only sampled at CD quality :P still sounds pretty good to me though.
