    New Head-Fi Update

    Hi guys, I haven't been back to head-fi for awhile. Imagine my surprise when I got back. Hahaha. I used to get daily emails with a list of subscribed threads w/ updates but those seemed to stop now. Now I get an email every time someone posts something so its really annoying now. How do I get...

    Thanks for the review. Is there a bluetooth option in the ak70? (For wireless headphones) If so, how is the sound?

    Audeze SINE Series

      Damn. That sucks man. Hope they find it. Maybe you could ask Audeze for the Sine pad specs?

    Great review! I've had mine for a year now and yes they sound really good. Best purchase I've ever made.   Have you tried upgrading the cable? You'll be surprised how bad the stock cable makes the A3s sound compared to a custom made or even the upgrade cable sony provides.

    Audeze SINE Series

    Hi guys, sorry if this is coming out of nowhere.   Based on the contributions here, I've finally decided to order one (without cypher cable). That was weeks ago. I ordered these directly from Audeze (at the time, they weren't backordered yet).   Has anyone ordered SINE directly from Audeze...

    Audeze SINE Series

    Hi, been following this thread lately. I've been looking for a reason to replace my Sennheiser hd25 w/ the Sine as my main on-ear headphones. But so far, I'm still on the fence buying these. Anyone compared these to any existing on-ear headphones (not the over ear ones like the pm3)? Thanks.

    Hi Fungus,   Where did you buy these from? They might be an older version but I'm not sure. I'm not aware any fake hd25s.   My hd25 are also rough in the outer cups but has a 3.5mm headphone jack.   As far as I know, there are multiple versions of the hd25. I think the one you got is for...

    Forza AudioWorks Impressions Thread

      Same here. I might ask Mat to make me a similar cable soon. I have a B&O H6 and the cable size is the same as yours (3.5 to 3.5 but insert plug is like 6mm).   Has anyone ever requested this type of customized cable before?

    New ALO Rx - IEM only - Portable Amplifier Impressions and Discussion Thread

      Hmmm. Thanks for the input, Relic. Really appreciate it.   I agree about the X5ii HO being flat for some reason. Coming from the original X3 + E11K, I knew something was missing and was considering buying an external amp for my X5ii, like the ALO RX. Neways thanks again. Really helpful.

    New ALO Rx - IEM only - Portable Amplifier Impressions and Discussion Thread

      Hi Relic, I was wondering how does the ALO RX improve upon the FiiO X5ii sound signature? I was actually planning to buy the RX a month ago but decided to wait for more reviews. Neways thanks!

      I'm not really sure if I should be amused by this. Maybe explain so that we can all have a laugh.

    Headphones you regretted buying the most

    Beats Studio v2: Don't get me wrong, they sounded great but moved on to something better after I discovered head-fi. It would be unfair to say that these suck because the sound is actually pretty good...but not worth the pricetag.   Also the active noise canceling is annoying. Lots of hiss...

    Sennheiser hd25: Need advice on mods and cable recommendations

      Kraken, thanks for the comment. Sorry but I have to disagree with that.   The reason I'm thinking of changing cables is because I've done it before with my SE215 iems. I changed the cables to steel and it did change the sound dramatically.

    Sennheiser hd25: Need advice on mods and cable recommendations

    Hi Steve,   Thanks for your suggestion. I find it interesting that copper and steel affect the sound like that. I will definitely look into copper cables. As for Zomo, I checked their website but they only provide valour pads though.

    Sennheiser hd25: Need advice on mods and cable recommendations

    Hi guys,   I just bought the Sennheiser HD25-II and I've been reading up on mods and aftermarket cables.   I'm not exactly new here on head-fi. I've been a member for at least over 3 months now and been lurking around here for way more than that.   Reason for buying - HD25 vs V-MODA XS  ...

    Hi cleg. Great review. I already have the x3 but I'm still looking for something more portable. I find the sound of the x3 a little dark & warm for me. Will the x1 be a little better in terms of brightness and clarity?

    budget dac?

    Hmmm...I heard great things about the odac. Like others said here, it is hard to beat under 200 dollars. Not sure about the combo with little dot mk2 but I think it should be fine.

    2014 Model SMSL SAP-5 Portable Headphone Amplifer Introduction / Impressions

    Hi! First time posting. Great review. I was actually thinking of buying this a month ago but I wasn't familiar with SMSL. Anyway, I was wondering how does it compare with E11 with regards to bass?   I'm thinking of using this headphone amp for my pc at work. Since I already have a hifimediy...

    Beats studio or V-Moda M100 or V-Moda XS for bass

    Hi hvking,   I own both the Beats Studio v2 and the V-Moda XS and I have to say that the Studio has better bass. If you are a bass head, you won't be disappointed. When it comes to sound clarity, I'm leaning more towards the XS since it is more balanced.
