    Monolith M1570 Over Ear Open Back Balanced Planar Headphones

    I discovered something this morning. I was fscking around with Windows 11, and checking out various audio settings, because you can't access the quick setting options off the taskbar like you can in Win10. I then noticed this "Enhance Audio" option, which is different from the Spatial Sound...

    The Tygrs and AKG should be ok, the DT-990 at 250 ohm, no.

    I did that with a G6 and my Asgard 3. Then later I got a SMSL M300 MKII, and compared. That's when I learned that the analog out rolls off the bass response, and the audio sounded grainy compared to the M300.

    Having had both the G6 and DT-990 Pro 250, you will discover that the G6 can be maxed on High Gain and still be listenable. aka it's underpowered, and you stress the G6 amp. Also, the analog stage will roll off the bass response on your 250ohm cans. You should consider a DT-880 model, or a...

    While I would be interested in a balanced amp, the Asgard 3 really does a great job, and I think the gains of going to something like a Jot 2 would be only incremental. So I'm not in any rush. Plus, I'd have to find a balanced tube preamp, or get a tube hybrid balanced.

    First, watch this video by Crinacle: Then, after being illuminated by Uncle Crin, you will dispose of the notion of a headset with a mic. It's only for convenience, :) Now, you can get a nice desk mic, a condenser one, so it only grabs audio in a single direction. As for the phones, how...

    FYI - the pads of the M1570 / M1070 are leather pads, and not pleather. Any online review or source (like Zeos) identifying them as pleather is seriously incorrect. My recent conditioning of the pads proves they are leather. :)

    If you read this thread, you would have your answer. The Ebay link is for the item, and sold by Monoprice. So yes, it's safe.

    isn't the problem with that is the fact that the headphones purchased have no warranty since it's not authorized by Hifiman? Also, with open box pricing at $639 @ Hifiman, doesn't this demonstrate just how much markup Hifiman is inflating the price?

    Schiit Asgard 3 - Impressions Thread

    Passing current through the amp is enough. Using a pink noise generator is irrelevant. I like to break in equipment using audio loops from pornos. Makes the drivers break in smexy.

    The HE6se @$600 is a bit of a blue moon price, or if you get lucky with an Open Box @ Hifiman.

    I learned a couple of things: 1) Do not try and calibrate your audio rig at 3 AM. Your brain is disabled. I got more accomplished in the morning. 2) These headphones are dark when no EQ is applied, and I am not a fan of the signature. 3) Your tube selection matters. I used the GE JAN 5654W...

    Copy the settings to a txt file. On the config.txt tab of EQ APO, add an Control...Include, and from here, load the txt file you saved. You can open the txt file in EQ APO to adjust the settings. (You can probably also do it in Peace, but I don't bother with that, since I learned how to do...

    @Malazan In regards to replacement cables, and other components of the M1570: No, Monoprice does not sell replacement cables or pads, and do not offer a balanced cable for purchase. Hopefully, as more of their product gets around, maybe this will change as demand increases. Demand = profits...

    My friend in Australia was asking me about these headphones, and I checked, and Monoprice's Ebay front ships to Australia. Current pricing is $537.30 + $58 shipping from US. Damn! :) Seems they ship worldwide, which means you don't have to buy from the EU store...

    Wow, that's a solid recommendation. Having both offer a similar enjoyable experience makes the M1570 a stupidly good buy value-wise.

    Closing the Redscape app causes the output to go silent. Leave it minimized.

    Try forcing the CPU affinity for Redscape to not use Core 0/1. You may be hammering the first core while gaming.

    I've never had an issue where any of my VSS apps introduced latency or lag/stutter to any game I've played. FYI.

    The thing that grabs me about these is that they sound like a set of speakers. I'm finding it hard to find faults in the sound, except maybe the no-EQ tuning. Did some movie watching, Skyfall with it's DTS-HD audio track, and using DTS Sound Abound application. One thing I noted is that with...
