    Yamaha HPH-200 (Pictures and review) [Updated]

      I've given these a listen and a bit of a comparison to the ESW9's. The ESW9's appear to be more detailed, with more sub bass and a generally more refined sound. That's not to say the HPH-200's aren't any good - they have a benefit as far as comfort goes - much less "clampy". The HPH-200's do...

    Yamaha EPH-100

    I am still waiting on mine from Audio Affair to be received in Australia. I have checked the Royal Mail tracking code they gave me and it says the item has landed in Australia on the 7th of June but I haven't received it and if I had, I doubt that there would be any update to the shipping...

    HELP! My esw9 are broken. No no no! - how to repair headband ;-)

    I am thinking of super-gluing the part while I try and arrange for a replacement bit... and like others here, am wondering how the hell to dismantle the things. I can't undo screw 22 with the cup there in the way and I can't detach the cup from the hinge (17)

    HELP! My esw9 are broken. No no no! - how to repair headband ;-)

    Well, I'm going to join the 'ESW9 Broken Joint Case Club' as well. Anyone know the best way to get the replacement parts to Australia?

    Urgent: For working out and car-duty...anything I should look at besides iPod Nano?

    I'd be looking at a Sansa Clip instead... good for work-outs.

    To raise 8k frequencies on a 5-band equalizer

    If you got a player that is rockbox-able, you can set the EQ parameters in that as well.

    Please help - Best headphones for big beat music

    I like my Audio Technica ESW9's for psychedelic trance... would have generally the same musical elements with faster speed (130-150bpm)

    To raise 8k frequencies on a 5-band equalizer

    Sorry... you really can't do it... you'll have to just drop the bands around it. What are you trying to play through?

    iBasso D2 loses an output channel when USB.

    I reckon it might be the port sensor on the line input socket. I had the same problem with my Total Bithead. Plugging in/unplugging a line input a few times fixes the problem temporarily.

    Equipment for DJing

    Go either CD's or something like Serato Scratch... you'll save heaps on vinyl purchases + transport thereof... As for a mixer, DJM800 is nice, industry standard, good sound. Works well as a DAC too.

    Can't hear any sounds other than music with ASIO4ALL/foobar2k

    That is normal... this is because the software mixer is bypassed, leaving a pure clean audio stream for the music and the music only to pass through.

    Portable DAC and Linux

    I find I have less problems with my D2 Boa when I use the included USB cable, vs. standard A to mini-B cables. Maybe the included cable does some weird stuff with the power pins which makes it more reliable?

    HD25's on the go? what amp?

    HD25's are notoriously loud... I don't think you'll have much trouble driving them straight out of a DAP, as I have before

    Sound signature of ESW9

    I have both the HD25 and ESW9. I much prefer the sound of the ESW9's. They don't isolate much at all though... but yeah, the bass is nice and full without being overpowering, the mids are fine and I find the treble to simply shine... Plenty of detail
