    What to get after LCD-2.1?

    Quote: I don't think your question is silly at all, i often ask myself a similar question. I am not made of money and as you said you are not made of money either. So your question of whether or not an upgrade is worth it makes perfect sense. I think IEMcrazy is just frustrated with the...

    Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread

    That sucks about your old headphones getting stolen. But at least it forced you to get an upgrade. It seems like a lot of people are against having more than one headphone, or at least having different headphones for different genres. I like having more than one pair, in the future i may even...

    post your grado mods....

    ^^^^ Thanks i am glad you think so. I think the color is growing more and more on me. But when i look at some of the braided cables that people make i am just amazed. But i guess its all in time. I think i am going to make an interconnect or something next.   As far as the headphones they...

    Quote: I can see why you might feel that way. But i am black, and usually keep a little bit of afro going. Its amazing how different they feel when i have hair and after i have shaved my head lol

    Non-audiophile reactions to high-end headphones

    Thanks for the words of warning, i think it is too late for me. I was just getting in Hi-Fi when we started dating. For our first Christmas i bought her some headphones. For our first anniversary we went to Canjam LA. And she still wants me to buy her some pro 2500.   She likes all my cans...

    Non-audiophile reactions to high-end headphones

    Quote: Yeah i definitely have to agree. She bought the headphones for me as an anniversary present. So the fact that she likes them too helps a lot. Maybe next year i can aim for the HD800s lol

    Non-audiophile reactions to high-end headphones

    My girlfriend heard my Hd-600s that just arrived today and said   "They just sound beautiful, everything is so clear, its like you have to listen to classical music with them"   I am finally getting to spend some time with these cans and can see why everyone likes them so much

    Pick my new Grado headphone!

    I have the Hf2s and i would strongly recommend them for your tastes in music. Unfortunately i have no experience with tubes so i cant speak for them. I have read that the RS1s are better than the hf2s but i haven't heard them.     And i find grados very comfortable i can wear them for 2+...

    Sennheiser IE7 Appreciation Thread ~~~

      Quote: I felt the same way when i first got the Ie7s they are very musical but not in a fatiguing way. Maybe its the lack of the piercing highs. But i find myself having really long listening sessions too with them. When i first got them i pretty much listened to all my favourites...

    what so special about Ultrasone headphones?

      Quote:   I totally agree that with ultrasones the proper placement on the headphones is crucial. It really can impact the sound. On certain cds when i have the headphones in the right place the music really does come alive. Sometimes i get scared that someone is standing behind me...

    Sennheiser IE7 Appreciation Thread ~~~

    I am glad that you Joey Russo think so, as i just upgraded from the S4s to the IE7s and i think that they are a world apart. I much prefer the IE7 to the s4. They are much more musical and detailed. Many say that the highs are missing that sparkle and though i agree with them in part i think i...

    Ed8 sounds different depending on head position

    Well i know with my ultrasones i hear a difference depending on how they are seated on my head. But turning my head makes no difference so i am not sure what the reason for that would be. If you hear a difference from just turning your head i guess it is safe to say that you don't use them...

    Black Dragon Cable installed on HD600 -- MAJOR differences in sound stage

    I have never been sure what to believe about the whole cable myth. So i just get the best cables i can afford which is usually the stock and go with that. But i am saving to get some nice senns and eventually i will want to upgrade the cable on those too.   But i am glad that the OP is...

    Do you prefer "fun" headphones or "reference" headphones?

    I thought that i knew what the difference between reference and fun headphones were. But after reading this thread i am not so sure. I think all the cans i have are fun but it depends on how i am feeling when i sit down to listen to music. I just got some IE7s and they are a nice change from...

    Are the Grado SR60s not very good for rap music?

    I would really recommend the 780s if you can stretch your budget or get them used...listening to murs for president is always a treat with that set of cans

    Portables and IEMs. Worth having both? When do you use which?

    I have portable and had some iems (lost my s4s)...but i think there is a point for having both. I prefer using my iems when i am on public transportation or need isolation when studying. But if i am just away from my setup like at work or at school i prefer to use portable headphones. But...

    My review of the Hisoundaudio ROCOO-A

    Thanks for the mini review. I saw the player and was about to start saving but i think i will have to take a step back and read and see how this device progress. As it is made by hisoundaudio i have no doubts that the SQ is amazing. But if the amp3 post taught us anything its that there is a lot...
