    Post your computer specs!~

    Picked up an Asus XG17! It’s a bit (very?) overkill, but I figure I’ll get enough use out of it.

    Jomo Audio has been around for a while though...? Unless your concerns are with MMR specifically.

    DAC under $300

    My setup is kinda(?) similar to yours, and I also think you should stick with the e30. If it ain’t broke...

    New to headphones

    It doesn’t mean you can’t still try out different gear. If you’re in the US for example, you can reach out to headphones.com where they have a year-long return policy and let them know about your situation (or other distributors that’ll let you borrow gear for a fee/deposit). Personal...

    IEM Recommendations - Sub Bass/Bass - EDM + Hip Hop - Any Budget

    EDM? Z1R, CE-5, and Legend X are all pretty good for that.

    New to headphones

    $5000? Audition the hell out of everything and figure out what you really want unless you want buyer’s remorse.

    ATTICUS and EIKON, the new dynamic driver headphones from ZMF

    Just goes to show how important personal preferences are - Atticus should be right up your alley

    Open headphone recommandation

    I omitted the HD580/600/650/660s because of the clamp. Not something I'd want to use if I still wore glasses - the 5xx/7xx/8xx are all more comfortable IMO.

    Dissapointed with high end headphones... what am I doing wrong?

    Just spend an amount you're comfortable with and buy gear that you like at/below that price point. There isn't too much to it - personal preferences should be dominating purchasing decisions over all else. (For example, I think the HD820 is hot garbage even before factoring in the $2400 price...

    I also went for the cocobolo. I know some people prefer harder/softer woods, but differences are pretty negligible - imo to the point where once you’ve picked out the specific headphone model you want, aesthetics should come before sonic differences.

    Yeah the Blackwood/brushed aluminum looks nice. I had the opportunity to get a Blackwood/black one before, but that was a bit too dark imo.

    ATTICUS and EIKON, the new dynamic driver headphones from ZMF

    Might be worth trying a lighter wood and/or mag chassis. Personally, I wasn’t too impressed by most of the higher-end closed backs available - the ZMF dynamics being the exception.

    Just a demo unit, but VC is pretty fantastic. Probably wouldn’t go for Monkeypod on my set though

    Aminus hates everything (Or, Aminus rants and reviews stuff)

    The average IEM might be better subjectively than what’s portrayed here, but there’s plenty of crap out there. I disagree with it being an issue of glass half empty vs. half full. Unless you’re of the opinion that most/all IEMs are worth buying, a reviewer who’s averse to putting out negative...

    Aminus hates everything (Or, Aminus rants and reviews stuff)

    If anything, isn’t “overly critical” preferable to “praises everything”? At least with the former, you can calibrate your own preferences to those of the reviewers, even if that means “do literally the opposite of what the reviewer prefers”.

    I mean the Hyla is basically a better executed Valkyrie

    Rank the IEM's you've heard

    The M3 is really bad, but I think it’s still a marginally better IEM than some of the other atrocities that have been (or are currently) available for purchase. That said, “it’s better than Obravo Cupid” is probably not what you want to be getting for $600.

    Rank the IEM's you've heard

    With the Noble M3, the first thing that really pops out at you is how offensive the mids sound - it’s like trying to listen to voices through a giant wall or something. It’s an IEM that I was looking forward to trying but was hugely disappointed by when I finally did. Muffled, distant, no thank...

    IEMS and Diminishing Return

    Yes, diminishing returns apply to IEMs. That depends on the flagship IEM. There are plenty of good IEMs under $500, especially when you also start to look at used products, and there are lots of failed flagship IEMs.
