    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    I like the memory foam pads from the AKG AnniversaryK702/712. It ticks all of my boxes and mutes that low treble a bit.

    Audeze EL-8 Closed vs Mr.Speakers Aeon Closed

    The Aeon C is by far the best/ most accurate closed headphone I have ever heard and is the best headphone I’ve heard under 1k by far(open or closed).

    New audiophile, recently obtained an LCD2 and an HD800. Should I upgrade my Magni 2 / Modi 2 stack with a Gustard H10, or a Magni 3?

    I actually think the Magni 3 sounds more balanced then the Jot. It is significantly better then the 2, and has a similar sound to my Darkstar(my favorite ss amp).

    A Vali 2 would compliment all of the mentioned as well.

    Amen to this. The 400/500/6/HE-4 all scale to unbelievable heights with a better chain.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    IMHO the hidden gem in the ATH line-up is the ATH-R70x, the smooth mids of the HD650 with a more open sound and deeper bass. They do not scale like the HD650, but man they sound just great with movies and music.

    Chord Mojo vs Schiit Birfrost Multibit? Which one is better?

    Agreed, Yggy>>>Darkstar>>>HD800 is a thing of pure beauty. Those who say it doesn't scale, have never heard it scale with synergetic gear. There are countless folks on here that would agree with me! *wish I could give your post a double like!

    Best Planar Magnetic Headphones under $500?

    The 560 has better bass with less decay then the 400i. The 400i has more quanity of bass . The 560 has also a cleaner, clearer presentation(to my ears). This being said, I was an early adopter of the 400i, my statement is based on the version 1!

    Can Grace Design m9xx make Sennheiser HD800 sound good??

    Because it is abysmal with the HD800 is why, the schiit stack he recommended is has significantly better synergy.

    Am I just not cut out to be an audiophile?

    And I did not disagree with the first paragraph. The opinions expressed as facts are where any disagreements arose. I said my point, now get your last word in and move on. I'll go enjoy my gear, you go enjoy yours, the same pursuits of enjoying music is the goal.

    Am I just not cut out to be an audiophile?

    Nothing to "prove", not "trolling", just making a point that there is no validity to your definition of an audiophile, it is your opinion. I can respect someone's opinion (even yours). I sometimes use gear(tube amps)that you are obliviously unfamiliar with to achieve better sound to my ears...

    Thanks for clearing that up, I was lost by your description, it seemed like utter nonsense.
