    Monoprice Monolith Desktop THX Amp/DAC (#24459) - Impressions Thread

    Has anyone tried the Monolith with Windows 11 yet? I did a clean install of it and the drivers from the Monoprice page don't appear to install on Windows 11.

    New Beyerdynamic Pro X line: DT 700 Pro X and DT 900 Pro X

    Thanks for confirming my suspicions. It’s a bit disappointing as without this ‘issue’, I feel that these could really be excellent do it all headphones. That’s not to say they aren’t good, I really do like them. I just find it hard to focus on the sound signature sometimes when I notice the...

    New Beyerdynamic Pro X line: DT 700 Pro X and DT 900 Pro X

    I’ve had the 900 Pro X for a few days and I really like how they sound. The usual Beyer treble peak has been tamed while still retaining plenty of detail. The mids are nice, I have no issues with vocals and I really dig the bass in that it does seem to extend quite deep while not being...
  4. Drop + HIFIMAN HE-4XX

    I am selling my Drop + HIFIMAN HE-4XX headphones. These headphones are in great shape and work perfectly. I just don't use them much anymore so I have decided to sell them. These headphones come with all of the original accessories and packaging as well as a longer aftermarket cable. I am...

    Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H6 Discussion Thread

    I just received my H6s yesterday and it has a sound signature that I fell in love with instantly.  I'm really digging the detail, imaging and soundstage.  The mids are clear and the bass is near perfect to my ears.  The only thing I can fault is the travel bag.  A flimsy microfiber bag? ...

    Yes and to add to this, it looks like you have to purchase a separate AC adapter to get the full 100w for external speakers as well.

    I don't know if the $280 deal is still available.  It irks me a little that I missed that deal, but to me it's worth the $400 I paid for it.    I should be able to recoup most of the cost by selling the gear that it will replace.

    Yes, there is an impedance switch on the back.  It's 4ohms or 8ohms.   Here is a closeup of the switch:

    I'll give that a shot later to see.  Thanks again for the help.   Here are a few pics I took when I unboxed it yesterday.  Yes, almost all of the cords in the last pic are power cords.  You can also see the headphone 'stand'.  I tried it, didn't like it.  It's pretty flimsy and not quite tall...

    My X7 is due to be delivered tomorrow. I will post impressions as soon as I get it.

      I too will be comparing the X2 with the K7XX.  I am going to have a 3-way shootout so to speak.  The X2, K7XX and the SRH-1840.  My guess is that the K7XX will win just based on its price to performance ratio.    Round 1 begins today when my X2 arrives and goes head to head with the 1840.

    I just bought a pair of TH900s from the FS/FT forum, should have them before the weekend.  I will be using them with my ODAC - Burson Soloist setup.   Can't wait!

    Yamaha hph mt220 thread (Merged)

    Ok, I've done some comparisons between the MT220, MDR 7520 and HP100.  Below are my impressions.   MY setup is Foobar 2000 FLAC -> ODAC -> Burson Soloist   Note that these impressions are not super-detailed, I mainly just jotted stuff down as I was listening to each one.  So this is going to...

    Yamaha hph mt220 thread (Merged)

    I received my MT220's yesterday, and while I've only had a short time to listen to them straight from an iPhone they are very promising.  Comparing them to the Sony 7520s from my iPhone the MT220s are less peaky in the treble while maintaining excellent detail.  The bass on the MT220s also...

    Charlotte, NC meet April 19, 2014 <> meet impressions

    Had a great time guys.  A lot of excellent gear to listen to, good music and friendly people.  Couldn't ask for more.   Although I couldn't stay for the whole time, I was able to finally listen to the Stax SR-007 Mk1 and Stax SR-009.  Both amazing headphones.  Other standouts were the LCD 2s...

    = HiFiMAN HE-560 Impressions & Discussion Thread =

    I'm very excited to read all of these great impressions about the HE560, especially the treble and soundstaging/imaging.     I don't want to derail anything but can someone who has placed their pre-order tell me if you were charged the full amount when you placed the pre-order or are you...

    AKG K601 & K612 Pro Owners... UNITE!!

    I use WASAPI through Foobar.  Thing is, none of my other headphones (MA900, X1, T1) exhibit this harshness with my setup.  So, that rules out any sort of software issue IMO.

    I am having similar issues.  I would like to continue to use my Turtle Beach DSS with my PS4 through optical out for surround audio to my headphones.  However, I want to have a separate mic for chat audio.  Would something like this work...

    Philips Fidelio X1 | Review & Comparison

    I will do my best to compare the X1 to the MA900.   First, let's get looks and comfort out of the way.  I absolutely love the look of the X1.  It looks and feels like a pair of high-end headphones.  It just gives the impression of luxury, to me anyway.  As for the MA900 - well, as expected...

    Philips Fidelio X1 | Review & Comparison

    Sorry, I haven't done the comparison yet.  I have a head cold and my hearing is a bit off due to all of the congestion.  I don't think I could do an accurate analysis until this clears up.  Which will hopefully be soon... :(

    Philips Fidelio X1 | Review & Comparison

    I like to think that most of the people on this forum try their best to explain how a headphone sounds and if it sounds good or bad to them. This is so they can help other people make educated decisions. After all, one cannot fully judge a headphone without listening to it. I have personally...

    SoundMAGIC HP100/HP150 Review and Impressions Thread

    Well, I received my Denon D600 last yesterday and did some comparisons between that, the HP-100 and my MDR-MA900.   I will just briefly touch on the D600's packaging, it is quite nice.  It reminds me of some higher-end headphone packaging I have seen.  However, I can't speak for anyone else...
