    DT-880, straight from the factory

    It's possible, Argon is a brand made by(for) a swedish franchise called hifiklubben.se, I strongly doubt they make any of their stuff themselfs, and has companies that know what they are doing make them after their desired specs. Thank you. Yeah I know! It looks nothing like that in real...

    DT-880, straight from the factory

    Well I went downtown and I bought this. Argon HA1 I consider it a temporary solution =P It isn't bad though, very sturdy construction, very compact, I am quite tempted to take it apart and have a look at it. It's too small to try and have a soldering/engineering party and make it balanced...

    Help me decide

    The qpad phones probably needs an amp as well, but they come with some small usb thingy, I'm guessing that is supposed to drive them properly. It would make the auzentech dead plastic though.

    iPhone replacement headset

    Allthough, I'm not an apple expert (in fact I despise them), there are 3 iphones right? and only the latest support stereo BT 'high-q' sound I think, I can never remember the name of the standard. HDSPA BBQ something.

    I don't know where you are from, and if they are even for sale there, but there is a swedish company that makes a headset called Qpad QH-1339, they are essentially one of Beyerdynamics aviation phones custom for pc gaming. With worldwide shipping they are 340 euro. You should look into that =)

    DT-880, straight from the factory

    There are no official distributors in sweden, and all the places that sell them don't have the right picture, or specify which edition it is. So I ordered them straight from Beyer in Germany. It turned out to be a wise decision, the price with shipping was the same as in sweden (305 euro total)...

    Harmony Design EAR 90

    *bump* So has anyone tried it yet? I'm looking for an amp and I don't mind being patriotic and buying a handmade swedish one =P Especially if it comes cheaper then it would as a commercial product.

    X-fi fatal1ty front (is it a amp?)

    Well if you are speaking from experience then it pretty much settles it =P Now comes the ardous progress of choosing a damn headphone amp. My first decision would probably be if I'm gonno trust the X-fi DAC and go for a wholly analogue amp (which is probably alot cheaper/resultwise), or buy a...

    Bluetooth headphones

    Let me fill in as a long time BT50 user, if someone is considering buying them and can't make up their mind. No they are not that high-end, and as said, no BT phones will ever be. So in the BT genre I'd say they are top of the line, for various reasons. The earpads, as said, barely covers...

    X-fi fatal1ty front (is it a amp?)

    Hello boys and girls, this be my very first post. I was looking around google for and answer and found this place, and has now spent the last 6 hours reading various threads about all sorts of stuff. Which is usually a good indication of a worthwhile forum. =D I've had all sorts of...
