    What cans are good enough to compete with the B&O Form 2 Headphones? (Up to $125)

    What cans are good enough to compete with the B&O Form 2 Headphones? I was at an Apple store today listening to lossless songs on my iPod with them and they sounded better than my KSC-75's. But for $100 bucks, I dunno if they are worth it. What cans compete with it up tp $125??

    I need help formating/customizing my Foobar. (Please Help!)

    I have no coding experience. I am using the latest version of Foobar, not the .083 that everyone is using in that foobar gallery thread. So far I have Columns UI installed and do not know how to make my foobar look and act like some of the examples I have seen in that thread. I want my...

    I didn't know that Foobar supported mp4 / m4a (ALAC) decoding!

    Even though the plug-in is unstable at this time, it hasn't crashed on me yet!! http://foobar2000.org/components/index.html

    Listing your equipment in your sig: Attention seeking or helpful???

    I made this thread because a few weeks ago I read in a thread where someone thought someone was bragging because they had all their equipment listed in their sig. Well, to be honest, I don't think listing one's equipment in their sig to be bragging at all. In fact, I think this practice is...

    What is the best music player for Macs?

    I mean, is there a Foobar for the Mac? Ones that also play ALAC? I only have iTunes, VLC player, and Realplayer on my iMac. Is there a better app?

    How does the Corda Aria do with the HD 650? (looking to buy one)

    How do the HD 650's sound with the Corda Aria? Is it a good amp for the price? Are there better amps/DAC's in that price range? I just did a few searches and didn't find any specific info related to a review of the HD 650's with the Corda Aria. Will it make my music (ALAC lossless) from...

    Can someone post the thread link to the "official" HD650 review please, I can't find it by searching. I looked through the review forum and didn't see it. Thanx.

    Ahhhh K1000 and STAX owners please don't beat me up for saying this but, why not just get two small speakers (audiophile quality) and just put them really close together and listen to them that way? Please wait, don't light up your flames yet lol! This is not a disrespect to the "Earspeaker"...

    I have a HP Pavillion PC (HP752N). What sound card do I have?

    I have a HP Pavillion PC (HP752N). What sound card do I have? I can't find the specs or where to find out which sound card I have. Also, I often read that PC's are do not have enough power to power the high end cans properly. The reason I bring this up is because the sound card I have...

    Need advice on burning-in HD 650's without an amp.

    I get my HD 650's in the morning and I want to get started on burning them in right away. The thing is, I do not have a headphone amp. All I have is a small bookshelf cd player, an Intel iMac (17"), an HP PC, and my 60 gig iPod video. Which one of these pieces of equipment would you suggest...

    Is there an "Official" review/comparison that's been done for the old & new DT880's?

    Just been wondering as most of the threads here mention the old versions. I am curious as to how the new DT 880's are., specifically compared to the old ones. Sorry if this has been covered and I missed it.

    If the Sennheiser HD650 is in the same league as the Beyer Dynamic DT880, then why such a large price difference? Is the extra $200 bucks really warranted or is Sennheiser charging a little too much for the cans? Do the Senns have better build quality? Do they have better parts? Whenever I do...

    FLAC/Apple lossless does not sound as good as original CD. Why?

    I have done a few searches here on the forums on ripping to a lossless format using EAC. For the FLAC songs, I used EAC (configured with one of the online guides), and for the ALAC, I used iTunes to rip the songs. So I do a quick audio quality test to see if there is a difference between the...

    How do the Grado SR-60/80's fare with you guys?

    First let me say wow! You guys have me addicted already! I just ordered my DT 880's yesterday and bought 2 pairs of KSC75's today (broke on of the grilles trying to do the Kramer mod so I picked up the 2nd pair). Was thinking about sneaking over to the place in my area that sells Grados and has...

    Wonder what you guys think of the sound quality of a Technics SL 1200 turntable

    I used to DJ and stopped a few years back. One thing I noticed when I first started spinning was that Vinyl could sound better than CD's a lot of the times depending on which type of music you were listening to. I used to spin mainly hip hop at parties/clubs but spun everything at home. I...

    Geez. Now that I narrowed down my search, I have no where to try these headphones.

    The nearest Sam Ash is about an hour away from me and does not have none of my choices in stock, neither does the nearest Guitar Center (about 5 minutes away). I live in south NJ (near Atlantic City, NJ) and want to try these headphones out first before making the decision on which I like...

    I need to be schooled on FLAC. (Help me understand)

    Okay, before coming here I thought I pretty much knew all there was to know about MP3's. Maaaaaan was I wrong. I usually rip my music at 192 or above (320 if I REALLY like the music) CBR. I use iTunes to rip. I always thought (without actually testing) that CBR sounded better than VBR and that...

    I need help picking out the right set of headphones. Got BOSE QC2 but may return.

    Okay, I just bought the BOSE QC2 (pictured below) earphones cause I wanted some great sounding (open or closed doesn't matter to me, neither does noise cancellation) earphones. Now, I am an audiophile that has been out of touch with the new technology for the past 8 years (got married, had...
