    Any difference between front and rear audio with the Asus Essence STX?

    Don't you have other cables plugged into the back as well (monitor, mouse/keyboard, etc...)? Anyway, I believe it depends on your case. I notice no difference between the front and back on my case, but I know others who did notice a difference. You'll have to try it out for yourself to see how...

    Looking for a decent, closed, portable headphone (sub-100 preferred)

    Well, I pulled the trigger on the V6. From the reviews it seems like for the price they are excellent phones. Isolation is mediocre (but improves with the DT250 pads, which I'll get later), and it doesn't leak. Easily driven from an iPod and doesn't need an amp (unlike my 770 which sounds...

    Looking for a decent, closed, portable headphone (sub-100 preferred)

    Reviews seem pretty good. I've heard it doesn't leak, but it doesn't isolate well (especially low frequency). Might be an issue if I'm studying in a cafe (which I do frequently). Also, I can only find them at $90, and every review I've read has people finding them at $60. Maybe the price just...

    Any difference between front and rear audio with the Asus Essence STX?

    I'm not to familiar with how to do this. Is it an easy process? Does it affect the warranty? And is the SQ drastically improved?

    Any difference between front and rear audio with the Asus Essence STX?

    Quote: That was my worry, since it isn't a direct connection to the sound card. Kind of a pain to have to keep connecting my headphones to the back, but I prefer the purest sound. Can I leave the adapter plugged into the back without disabling the speakers, or do I have to pull that out...

    Any difference between front and rear audio with the Asus Essence STX?

    I recently ordered the Essence STX and am still waiting for it to come in. I'm going to use it to power my DT770 (which I've had for 2 years now, and I'm excited to finally hear what they are fully capable of). My question is, if I install the sound card and use it to power my front audio ports...

    Will I notice a difference with a dedicated sound card?

    That Fiio e10 looks so nice, but the price of the Asus is pretty amazing. Also, it doesn't take too much away from my funds, so I'll still be able to get my 3D vision kit soon enough. So long as there isn't a major difference in what I would gain between the two, I'll stick with the Asus. Thanks...

    Will I notice a difference with a dedicated sound card?

    Well, I will have $100 left over after building my computer. I was thinking either save 50 more and get a 3D vision kit, or put it towards a sound card if it would enhance my gameplay. I absolutely love the 770. They sound amazing, and have tons of base, which is nice when I game. But someone...

    Will I notice a difference with a dedicated sound card?

    I'm building a new gaming computer and am getting this mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157264   I have a pair of DT770 Pro 80ohms I use for gaming/music/movies. Will buying a dedicated sound card make any difference in sound quality on these headphones (they...

    Amp for DT770?

    Thanks. I'm leaning most heavily towards the Sparrow. Does anyone know how long shipping takes?

    Amp for DT770?

    Did either of you find a decent amp to power your phones? I haven't really looked too much, and was planning on getting a Zero when I came back to the US, but it seems like they've fallen in popularity.   I still won't be back until end of April, so I have some time to do a little research...

    Looking for IEM's between $100-150 on Amazon for gym/library

    Currently I have the DT770, which I love, but they lack the portability I'm looking for. Also, it's kind of hard to work out with them on :) I'm looking for some decent IEM's that I can wear while going for a short jog, but I'll mostly be using them when I'm studying (sometimes in fairly noisy...

    Significant audio improvement with Zero DAC on my MacBook Pro?

    Haha, thanks for the clarification. I don't need to be able to tell the difference, but if I'm paying the same amount for a physical cd and a digital one, I want to make sure what I'm getting is the best sound. But if they're both gonna sound the same with what I've got, then I might as well...

    Alternative to my DT770's

    Well, a lot of people said for the DT770 you need an amp, otherwise they sound terrible. I run them from my iPod touch at only 60-70% and they are just fine for me. Keeping that in mind, would the 780 be fine? I'm not overly interested in sound quality when I'm studying in the library. The...

    Alternative to my DT770's

    I'm in med school, and I currently have the Beyer DT770 Pro with gel pads and I love them. I use them to listen to classical music in the library. Though they may not be the best for classical music, they block out noise phenominally, and better than any open-back headphones or the denon 1001k...

    Ripping audio from DVD

    I recently purchased the Killers live album. It includes a cd with their live recordings, and a DVD of them in concert. I want to rip the music from the DVD to Apple Lossless. Is this possible?

    Does Manufaktur ever ship?

    Yup, they arrived today. I take back what I said about them. Though I wish they updated the site a little more. Anyone have any tips on how to get the new pads on? I can't seem to get all of it to wrap around. NVM, Got it.

    Does Manufaktur ever ship?

    The issue wasn't how long it was taking, but the fact that it had been nearly a week, and they hadn't even shipped it out yet (although they took my money right away). Anyway, I called them and the guy apologized and sent them out today.

    Classical cans under $100

    I think I'm gonna go for the AD700. It may not be the best for the library, but it should be okay if I turn it down. Plus, I can easily listen to them at home. I have a great pair of closed phones, they just happen to be horrible for classical. Lol, I guess I'm just looking for an excuse to go...

    Is it very Important

    The cable will not make a difference considering you're using a cmoy. You would need some high-end gear before you think about high-end cables.

    Foobar for Mac?

    I have been using iTunes ever since I got a Mac. I use Apple lossless to rip my cd's. Do these other programs actually make a difference in sound quality? I mean, the sound card in my Mac is the same no matter which program I use, and Apple Lossless is lossless, so it should sound the same, right?

    Your Favorite Band of All Time

    Being part of a younger generation (i'm 22), I love the Killers. Their first album blew me away, and the way their sound changes with each album keeps them fresh. I also got to see them live a month ago at the Jones Beach Amphitheater and WOW! First band that I thought sounded even better in...
