    MF A3.5-esque cd player or a dac?

    Is linux really worth it?

    I've been hearing people upgrading their k501's with some sennheiser cables, but this is all i got out of it from searching the forums and online: soldering straight into drivers is necessary so um... my questions: how is it done without breaking the headphones? are there any...

    K501 a good choice for a replacement?

    I currently have the a900's and even though the detail overall is extroardinary, the highs are way too loud, ie it's so piercing that the 0404 + go-vibe combo literally deafens me if i don't have the eq turned on. I was thinking of replacing them with the k501's, but i don't know what it will...

    Foobar and WMA

    strewn in my music collection is WMA stuff (yes, so unfortunate). Is there a WMA input component for foobar i can use? I'd like to just get the plugin instead of converting them all, which is a hassle.

    You have this cool hairdo that makes you look great, but after wearing headphones for a while, you get the dreaded Headphone-hair!!!!! ARGH!!!! The a900's make my hair look... wrong. imagine a couple patches of hair on each side of the top of a head completely flattened while the rest of the...

    Where to get A900's

    The A900's look like a very good deal for me, wanting a good pair of closed headphones on the cheap, but the only place i can find it is at Audiocubes. I was wondering where else sells the headphones, hopefully for cheaper. Thanks.
