    Bought K171 today: First impressions

    Today I went to give the AKG K171 a try. In the shop they had a used pair and I tried it and it was really comfortable. I also liked the sound directly from my Zen so I bought them. Now I got mine here at home and they really are quite nice. There still is strong clamping force but I now that...

    New portable headphones: K171 hard to drive?

    Now that I have a cable issue with my E2C I thought about buying some new portable headphones in the future. I don't have/want an amp, it's just too much of a hassle to carry around. I don't want inears again because I think that bigger headphones provide better sound for the money. I looked...

    Bajofondo's new CD: Mardulce

I'm on my second listen and I really think it's great and worth a try if you like either Electronic music oder Tango or both. Bajofondo is a group of South American artists and their music could be described...

    Headphone stand

    Cantate's DAC

    I've picked up a Darkvoice 332 and a Super USB DAC from diykits.

Was it a bad idea to get the DV332+SuperDAC and...

    Linux and Super Pro USB DAC

    Anyone know if the Super Pro USB DAC will work with Linux? Is it just plug-and-play or do I need special drivers? On the website there's nothing mentioned concerning drivers.

    Super Pro USB DAC or Fubar II?

    Sound card/Portable player => DarkVoice 336i

    I plan to get the DarkVoice 336i since I heard it works well with K 701, HD 650 and DT990 and I'm going to get one of these (going to try them on Saturday). So what I wanted to know is if I could just use a cable or an adapter to get the 3,5mm out of my sound card or my Zen Vision:M to the dual...
