    How did you know when you reached your endgame?

    I didn't realize it at the time but it seems I reached my endgame setup with my very first purchase in this hobby 10 years ago when I bought a Denon AH-D5000. I then bought a AKG K702 and by the end of 2008 I had spent almost $2,000 building my first separates system. It seems I got it right the...

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    It was really easy to transfer the drivers, I just used a pocket knife to cut a little groove in the frame of the TH-X00. The only thing I will need to do is glue the disc holding the drivers in place, to the cups of the T5P. Also, I actually created bass ports on the T5P.

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    I ended up taking the drivers of out of my Fostex TH-X00 Purple Heart headphone and putting them in a A&K Beyerdynamic T5P. The T5P was faulty anyways so I had no problem doing this lol. The reason I done this is because I was dissatisfied because the Purple Heart did not sound as close to the...

    Show us your Head-Fi station at it's current state. No old pictures please...

    Cassette deck is just a fancy term to indicate that it is part of a separates system. The system pictured is actually my fathers (he bought it in 1996 for $1,100) but he recently gave it to me lol. The cassette deck has Dolby Noise Reduction, even by todays standards, it is very good.

    Chinese / Asian Brand Info Thread (On or Over Ear Headphones)

    I strongly disagree that the T5P is "bad" for it's price.

    What are the most detailed headphone to hear details (audio example inside)?

    The most obvious path to being able to hear the difference between 320 kbps mp3 and Flac is to invest in a high end cd player and amp combination. This will maximize the performance of the HD650, although perhaps also invest in a headphone that is a little brighter sounding as this will also...

    Rank the Headphones that You Own.

    Going to be buying the Sony MDR Z1R in May as it's the only headphone I don't have that I really want, i'm really looking forward to finally getting it. In the meantime (ranked in order of favourite): 1. AKG K702 - my favourite open-back headphone. I think the tonality of the K702 is...

    BeyerDynamic owners unite...

    I've been listening to my Beyerdynamic T70 today and I gotta say..the T70 is definitely my 3rd favourite/best headphone i've ever owned. I have T5P earpads on my T70 which makes the sound signature more neutral but even with the stock earpads, the T70 would probably be my 5th favourite/best. I...

    Closed-back Cans Complimenting DT880s

    I recommend the M50X. I've owned both the DT880 600 ohm and the M50X and the one major difference between the two (regarding sound quality) is bass. The M50X has more bass, I wouldn't describe it as "hyped" though, to my ears it's very accurate..it's just that it can reach lower frequencies than...

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    My dedicated headphone amp which has a high quality Burr Brown 384/32 bit DAC and output level of 80mW into 600 Ohm couldn't even make the HD700 I had, any fun to listen to.

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    I do have a very high quality Cyrus CD player and powerful class-A amplifier that I use when I really want to test my headphones/speakers. It works every time no matter what headphones/speakers I use..it totally transforms them..except the only thing that seemed to improve significantly with the...

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    The HD700 was one of the oddest most flawed headphones I've ever owned/heard..I know it's just my opinion but I honestly think the tuning was all over the place, akin to an out of tune musical instrument. At times I'd describe the HD700 as sounding dark, yet also times I thought it was too...

    Most comfortable headphones for under $400?

    Audioquest Nighthawk, Beyerdynamic T70 with T5P earpads (T5P earpads are about $40), Beyerdynamic DT880, Bang & Olufsen H9 (haven't tried the H9 but I used to own the H6 and I believe the H9 has the same earpads and design as the H6 and that was a very comfortable headphone).

    Sennheiser HD820

    Music production can be a very complicated and time consuming process..and requires allot of skill. There are many different stages and things to do to make sure that the recorded music sounds good enough on everything it gets played through. This does not mean that producers will only get good...

    Sennheiser HD820

    IMO a neutral headphone should be one that has full spectrum sound. A headphone that can reach the lowest bass notes without sounding bloated, has warm mids yet no details are masked..and has no annoying treble peaks whilst being bright/clear enough to hear background details in recordings. So...

    Looking for a replacament to my Akg K712 PRO (HD 660S, 990PRO, etc)

    The K712 doesn't need lots of power to work well, I think it's only 62 ohms or something..but the K712 is one of those headphones that improves significantly with better amplification. You might also want to consider the Sennheiser HD700..I used to own one and hated it for music, but I thought...

    Closed-Black Headphones!

    Hi What kind of sound signature do you prefer? do you have a dedicated headphone amp/dac or will you be using a portable device such as a DAP to power the headphones? EDIT: here are a couple recommendations from me, anyways :wink: Beyerdynamic T5P; Soundstage and imaging is the best i've heard...

    Well i'll admit, the HD820 does look cool..

    Ah well.. Criticism can be a good thing. Trust Sennheiser to be unconventional!

    Sennheiser HD820

    Yeah, but the glass part is directly behind the drivers. I'd imagine that listening to music at low to medium volume levels with the HD820, outside noise from the surrounding environment would interfere quite noticeably with the audio playback.
