    Interesting Ultrasone HFI 580 mod

    I didn't use my HFI 580 anymore so I thought I'd play with it some. I always found the highs to be too prominent and piercing. I didn't really understand the bass monster reputation these cans have, since I'm already deafened by the treble when I turn up the volume to try to hear any...

    Upgrading from Essence STX > Yulong D100?

    I've been enjoying my Essence STX for a good 2 years now and have acquired some nice headphones and an amp to go along with it in the meantime. Even though I'm enjoying my current setup a lot, I'm curious what improvement there is to gain in the DAC section.   I want to upgrade from my...

    Good DAC for max $150 to replace Essence STX?

    Hi fellow headfiers, I'm looking for a dedicated DAC to replace my Xonar Essence STX. I will be pairing it with a Schiit Asgard amp. The Musiland Monitor 02 caught my attention, as it seems to perform really well for the price. Do you have recommendations for a good DAC under $150 which will...

    iBasso Toucan or should I go full-size?

    Hi all,   I've been looking around for an amp to feed my HD 600 to finally unleash the beast within, I'm currently using it with an Essence STX sound card, i doubt this does any justice to the HD 600. (the difference between the Essence and my Fiio E5 is quite small, so this says something...

    New headphone to replace HD 555?

    Hi fellow Head-Fiers,   I'm currently using an HD 555, which isn't that bad at all, but i'm looking for a headphone which can deliver a much better sound quality.   I'm considering the SRH840, which is according to the reviews quite a bit better then the HD 555. The biggest advantage...

    SRH840 vs Pro 750

    Hi all,   I need a closed headphone for home listening out of an Essence STX. I read some good thinks about the Shure SRH840 and the Ultrasone Pro 750 seems like a very nice headphone as well. From what i've read the Shures have a more analytic and flat sound, while the Pro 750's are a...
