    $500 Maximum for IEMs with sound signature similar to OPPO PM3

    I'm looking to upgrade from my Shure SE215s and get a new pair of IEMs for commuting. They need to have good sound isolation and work well with mobile devices. My two main sources are my iphone and Fiio X1. Like the title says I am willing to spend up to $500. I own the OPPO PM3s and really...

    my sources would be my fiio x1 and my laptop. I usually listen at about 40 on my X1.

    Would you recommend using this with the Sennheiser HD650s or should I look for something more powerful?

    The Revenant 6/10. Oh man this movie was beautifully shot but a huge snore fest! Nothing is wrong with a slow pace in a movie but something interesting needs to happening to justify it. I can only watch a man drag his bloody broken body for so long. The movie had a great opening and an awesome...

    Sony MDR MA900 Impressions Thread

    Did the pads change the sound at all? Why did you choose to do a double recable as opposed to a removable cable mod?

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Which portable amp/dac combo which you recommend to use with the 650s? It needs to be portable and include both functions. LESS than $300 would be ideal. Would plug into a Dell Inspiron.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    I have a laptop and wanted to know what portable amp/dac combo you guys use with your HD650? I would prefer to have a 2 in 1 in the $200 price range. I definitely need a DAC because the soundcard on my laptop sucks.

    Taxi Driver 7/10 I liked it but it was strange that at time I didn't understand why certain events were happening. The main character Travis seems mentally ill at the very least. The way he socializes and reacts to his surroundings is so unnatural. The cinematography was good but sometimes it...

    Sony MDR MA900 Impressions Thread

    I pulled the trigger. I ordered through Amazon but it is being imported. Headphones were $189 + $24 for express air mail. I expect to get them this Friday. I hope I don't have to return them.

    The E10K can be used with just an ipod right? Do you use the bass boost with the MA900?

    $300 Open Back Over Ears for Home Use

    I did verify with Gary. He said the HE-500 is harder to drive.

    Leon: The Professional 8/10   I just watched the regular version and then the extended version. I liked the extended version because it gave Leon a little more character. I love the stupid expression on his face whenever he isn't killing people. I don't know how the movie was received when it...

    $300 Open Back Over Ears for Home Use

    As the title says, I am looking for a pair of Over Ear, Open headphones. My budget is $300 but it can be stretched if it is really worth it. I am looking for a headphone that is really a jack of all trades. I don't want a master of a certain genre. That also does not mean I want a neutral...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    I saw a video that compared a headphone (cant remember), a denon, the Hifiman HE-400 and the Sennheiser HD 650. The reviewer picked the HE-400 over everything else. Has anyone here listened to both headphones raw and with an amp? How would you compare the two? I know this is the Sennheiser...

    The PA2V2 Thread

    I'm thinking about buying the Hifiman HE-400 and this amp. Gary said they would work together but the amp would struggle with the HE-500. When you say turn up the gain does that just mean opening up the amp and turning a knob? I'm new the headphone world and I've never owned an amp so I don't...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    I'm considering buying the hd 650s because I've read that they are the jack of all trades. Sounds like it matches my diverse music tastes. I also know that 300 ohms definitely calls for an amp. I want a portable amp and multiple users in this thread have mention the Cayin c5 or the Fiio E12. Are...

    City of God: 9/10 foreign action movie. If you haven't seen it, it is on Netflix. A dark and gritty movie set in the slums of Rio, you follow the story of a boy as he grows up and tries to avoid getting caught up in the gang violence.

    I'm buying the Sennheiser hd 650s soon and I know that I'll need an amp. I will be using it at home but I would prefer not to be tethered to my desktop computer. I am looking for a portable amp for under $200 that can support the 300 ohm requirement for the Sennheisers. The amp will be paired...

    If you want an even better movie with the same concept you should watch Limitless.
