    Capacitance of the ESL diaphragm (questions about how the ESL works)

    From another thread:   Can anyone elaborate? As I see it the capacitance of the diaphragm must one of the determining factors of sensitivity.

    Spiralling towards end-game, recommendation on hi-end home setup, budget 1-2k$

    Hello there! I'll try to keep it short so feel free to ask further questions.   I own a crap-load of different semi hi-end/mid-fi-ish headphones as of now (see signature). I want to sell most of them and make my move up the ladder.   I am considering HD800, HE-560 and the new Jade 2. I...

    Good, cheap and flexible coax cable wanted!

    I need a coax cable to go from my new fiio x3 to my DAC. The thing is, it should be flexible and light! I don't really know where to find such cable.. Preferably it would have mono 3.5 mm jack on one end, and RCA on the other, but that is not important at all.    Thank you! Hopefully I'm not...

    Headphones for a friend :D (recommendation)

    I have a friend wanting to spent some 100-150$ (max 200) on a headphone (yay!).   They'll only be used in his home, unamped. I have a feeling he would want a somewhat neutral, leaning towards warm, headphone.   I have suggested him the CAL!'s because he can get them for only 55$, which...

    How good is the built-in DAC in fiio e17?

    I am debating with myself whether I need a new DAC, probably at a budget of approximately 200$. For now, I am using the DAC in my e17. Now I am wondering how good the DAC is, compared to other of the well known DAC's.   At the moment my main can is the HE-500, and my amp is the Musical...

    Fiio e17 Voltage Output (ear-roast or not?)

    How can i calculate, or maybe estimate the coltage output of my fiio e17 if connected via either usb or iPhone LOD? I really want to know this, since I want to know whether i play too loud through my 250 ohm DT-880.   If it helps, i usually go for around 27-30/60 on 6 dB gain. Hope you can...

    Like the ety sound, want some cans!

    For now i have the eytmotic hf5. I like them a lot, but now it is time to step up, and get some full size cans.   My budget is around the price of the sennheiser hd650 (to not mess with price and currency diffs...) The sound sig could be anything but V-shaped, and most importantly it must...

    Advice for new head-fiers?

    Just got some thoughts i want to share about audio sources. I have got my computer, iphone, and finally heard a couple of amps.   First off the computer is an awful source with its built in headphone amplifier/dac. Very little bass, and the bass that might exist seem to be unaccurate and...

    Etymotic HF5 amping tip?

    Saw a review some days ago on the hf5, which i have also bought. Especially following quote seems to be interesting         I thought about building my own amp. Anyway adding the attenuator before the iem's what does it do? To me, it makes sense that it would make the static noise...
