    Do you believe BURN IN for your Audio Stuff like Headphones, Earphones and Amplfiers?

      :D   Let us move on to Tyll Hertsen's fascinating set of articles on the subject! 1, 2, 3, last page for those who hate reading The fact that Tyll was able to reliably identify the headphone with more playtime is pretty convincing evidence that there are perceivable changes, to me at...

    Best high end headphones for AK240

      The manufacturer's figures aren't necessarily misleading, the way that you presented them is. P-P amplitude and RMS amplitude are completely different ways of expressing the voltage. The way that you stated the values was at best ignorant, and at worst deliberately confusing.   I took a...

    Sennheiser HDVA 600 headphone amp

    I could see if my boss will let me take one of the open box Black Cube Linears home... That would be nice.   First impressions, this is one really nice amplifier, I'm getting a fair amount more impact out of my HD650s when compared to the Glite+DPS. I was listening to Kurt Vile last night...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Quote:   Mmmm the HD650 sounds like a million bucks out of the Crack. The time I heard that combo it was out of a PS Audio transport/DAC system though.

    I figured that I may as well take a picture of my rig before I head back to school. Disclaimer: It is very difficult to take a picture with the Nexus 7's camera (which sucks anyway) EDIT: oh wow that turned out even worse than I had anticipated :o EDIT EDIT: resized to diminish crappiness of...

    Today, Curiosity Rover lands on mars.

    I highly recommend watching the landing preview on Eyes on the Solar System, it's such a beautiful and detailed simulation.

    Convincing your friends of your headphone hobby?

    Quote:   Surely it's an investment in your listening experience, but I've seen a hugely frustrating number of users here with really super setups that have the most pedestrian taste in music.

    Convincing your friends of your headphone hobby?

    Quote:   Precisely, audio enthusiasts have a bad rap because they're often stereotyped as pushy elitist snobs. If people are interested in why you put so much effort into your audio, feel free to explain your passion to them constructively. Don't put down their equipment or their music...

    Headphones More Engaging Than The HD650s?

    I only use my HD650s when I'm just listening for this very reason, they have great balance and a really mature sound, but if you're doing something else they do not draw you in. When I'm on the computer or something I pull out the HF2s, so perhaps check out a Grado? Really, most things are more...

    Should the US minimum wage be raised?

    I'm not saying that their own minimum wage is higher than the federal mandate, simply that the state has their own written law regarding minimum wage. Irrefutably most states have their own minimum wage laws. (http://www.dol.gov/whd/minwage/america.htm) Regarding the difference in cost of...

    Should the US minimum wage be raised?

    I agree completely, the goal of minimum wage is to prevent worker exploitation, not to create a living-wage standard.

    Why do my CDs sound bad?

    Are you using the Nuforce with your DVD player? There is no reason why using your DVD player as a transport would sound worse than using your computer as a transport. The youtube videos should sound like garbage regardless.

      Quote:   IIRC the paint chipping is more due to stretching of the headband than letting it lay on a surface. I've had my HD650 for 3 years having bought them used, and used them without a stand for 2 years. No chipping of any sort.
