    Next upgrade

    I'm looking for the next big thing to upgrade. Like my sig says I have an emu 0404(computer as source) to a glite(without psu), and using mostly the rs1 and 650s. I'm in a bit of a pickle as to what to throw my money at now, I'm leaning towards a cardas upgrade for the 650s, but whether that...

    Pondering new amp for the 580s

    HD-580's sound leak request

    I'm still a little erky on how much the HD-580's leak sound, although sadly it is impossible for me to try them out before I order them. Is it possible that someone could set up how much sound comes out of them from 1 meter away at at a couple different volumes?

    HD-497's and MINT

    I plan to order the HD-497's from I'm not sure where to get them in Canada, although I might give a call before I make my decision. I've never had a headphone amplifier before so I'm looking at starting with the MINT. It will be used primarily for my...
