    Looking for an open and very comfortable headphone for home theater and gaming use (Thinking Senn HD 558, AT AD-900, or BD DT-990 250ohm)

    I'm in the market for an open full size headphone for home theater and gaming use. I'd love it if it sounded great when listening to music as well but that is a secondary and less important concern (I listen to rock, pop, and electronic stuff mostly). Above all the most important thing I'm...

    Sell my Ultrasone Proline 750 for Sennheiser HD 598?

    So awhile back I was considering adding my second pair of cans to my Head-Fi collection. I've had my Proline 750s for four years and I love them. They're the cans that got me into the whole Head-Fi thing and arguably the first piece of high quality audio equipment I'd ever owned. So I decided it...

    Amps the size of the Fiio E5 but... better

    So after a long hard fought internal struggle the HiFiMan RE262 beat out the Fischer Audio DBA-02 for my future IEMs. My original plan was to use these with my phone and a Fiio E5 with services like Amazon Cloud Storage and MOG (and pretty soon Spotify *girlish scream*). The phone/streaming...

    Battle of the open back cans in an overly broad price range for a lost and confused little man

    Seems my plans keep changing. Originally I was going to look for a nice pair of open back cans I'd be content enough replacing my Ultrasone PROline 750 with. Then I couldn't part with the 750 because I love em so damn much. Currently I've decided I want to go drop more money than I should on a...

    Best universal IEM for $100-$150 to be paired with Pandora/MOG/Spotify and amped by a Fiio E5

    Pretty much what the title says. I've no interest in carrying a pair of headphones around with me when I'm on the go but I'd still like something that sounds good and isolates well. My primary source of mobile music these days is Pandora and MOG (MOG is apt to be replaced by Spotify when it...

    Do I need a sound card?

    Here's my, soon to be, new setup: Sandy Bridge PC outputting audio, via HDMI, to my AVR (Denon 1712) output to my speakers and headphones (Ultrasone PRO 750 and probably a Sennheiser HD 598), and video out of my SLi graphics cards, via DisplayPort, to my monitor. As far as I'm concerned this...

    I need a very comfortable, open, pair of headphones for around $150.

    So after four years I'm ditching my Ultrasone Proline 750s. These days I find I'm spending longer periods of time with my headphones on, instead of using my speakers, and the 750s tend to get uncomfortable after 2 or 3 hours.   My budget is around $150. I've only two requirements. First of...

    (Sold) Ultrasone Proline 750; Very good condition; Free shipping

    Comes with original box, demo CD, both cables, 3.5mm adapter, and spare ear pads. I bought these in 2007 for audio work at school and post-graduation I'm finding they're spending most of their time on the shelf. They're still in great shape and sound fantastic. The only noticeable wear is in...

    I need reccomendations for places to do headphone research

    My 5G iPod bricked, what can I do?

    My fifth generation iPod bricked last week and I've run out of ideas, I'm out of warranty, I'm not gonna pay Apple $130+shipping to fix it, and I can't find any 3rd party firmware that will install on it. I was just listening to music doing my laundry and it froze, I tried to reset it and it...

I'm writing an analytical report comparing the Bose QueitComfort 3, Ultrasone Proline 750, and Shure SE530. I figured this would be an excellent source of information and anyone's...

    Hey everybody, I was sent here by the AVS Forum folks who claim this is the place I need to be for headphone inquiries. Here's the deal, I'm a freshman studying Audio Engineering and need a solid pair of headphones for my lab work (my cheapy $15 earbuds just ain't cuttin it) and I'd like to...
