    Portable Over ear Headphones Recommendations circa 2021

    I've gotten out of the portable over ear headphone market for 4-5 years now, last time I was invested in it was when the v-moda m100s were hot. I'm open to wireless headphones like the sony wh-1000xm4 but I need a wired backup and something decent. I need a pair of headphones that fold flat...

    Topping DX7 pro vs D90/A90 stack?

    I’m interested in changing my Sony UDA-1 that I’ve had for nearly 5 years now. I’m wondering if there’s much of a difference between the topping DX7 pro vs the A90/D90 stack? Does it merit the 700 price increase or not

    Open back headphones with minimal heat build up recommendations?

    I’m speculating that Focal line of headphones will dissipate heat more readily due to the all metal build. The he-400i features an all plastic build so the headphone must be insulating all the heat.

    Open back headphones with minimal heat build up recommendations?

    I’ve had a pair of hifiman he-400i for about 4 years now and while they’ve served me well the biggest problem I’ve had with the is the heat buildup that occurs after not all that much time. The detail is great, low end is meh but very wide soundstage. I was looking at a pair of seinheiser hd...

    Looking for Music Recommends:

    So I'm looking for music recommends and I'm gonna compile a reasonable sized list of songs that I like and see if anyone can see a similarity between the songs I like.  I have a very hard time finding music that I really like, but here's the list.   Chicane-Offshore Chicane-sunstroke(disco...

    Sweatproof IEM's for working out

    I'm looking for a pair of sweatproof IEM's for working out.  Up until recently I had a pair of v-moda m-100's that I used for working out, but they were just stolen so now I'm looking for something to replace them.  As for the sound signature that I like, well I appreciate good bass, though I do...

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    Now that I've had my he-400i's for a week now, and gotten many hours of listening they have changed my perception of headphones.  Every other pair of headphones that I have owned now sound lackluster compared to these.  I put on my v-moda m-100 on after putting these on and vocals sounded wiry...

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

        I'm still at the first picture, and I've had them for more than 3 days now.  They have loosened up a bit, but not by very much yet.  The headphones have grown on me, so I won't be returning them even with the build quality flaws.

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    I just found out about that deal and I think i'm going to bite.  Might end up keeping the 400i's, I'm liking them the more I listen to them.

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    I have listened to the audeze lcd-2 for around two hours and I really did enjoy the headphones.  Now that I've had my 400i's for 3 days I am seeing the headphone shine, but there are other things that piss me off and it all comes from the build quality.  I did feel that the LCD-2's had more...

    V-MODA M-100: Discussion/Feedback, Reviews, Pics, etc.

      When I first got my pair of m-100's over a year ago they sounded terrible out of the box, but after I broke them in which took like 2 weeks then I really started hearing their quality.  Same thing happened with my beyer COP, beyer DT-990 pros, and also with my hifiman he-400i that I just got...

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    The 400i's seem to be able to just absorb juice.  My sony UDA-1 needs to go much farther on the volume when compared to the DT990 pro's.  This doesn't really make much sense as the beyers are 250 ohm while the 400i's are 30 I believe.

    What are the best IEM's under 1000$?

    I don't really listen to classical music very often, based from what I am hearing I would like the se846 more than the W60's.  Thanks for the input!​

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    I do like to have a bit more emphasis on the bass, as I like the v-moda m-100's and other headphones with more bass emphasis.  I do appreciate powerful bass, so I'm thinking these headphones have the sound signature that I'm looking for.  I plan on keeping the phones for a very long time, that's...

    Westone W60 Impressions Thread

    So I'm trying to decide between the se846 and the westone w60, but considering the review it seems that I may like the se846 more.  I have listened to the Audeze LCD 2 for an extended amount of time and really liked the headphones.  I feel that I would then like the se846 too because they seem...

    What are the best IEM's under 1000$?

    Now I'm considering of getting the shure's se846, westone W60 or possibly a UE product.  Can anyone tell me the difference between the westone W60 and shure se846?  I have just been unable to find any bad reviews of the shure's and from what I read they have a similar sound to the Audeze LCD-2...

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    So I am highly considering to purchase these earphones as I only hear great things about them, but I am also considering of getting the Audeze LCD-2.   From some of the research that I have done apparently both products have a similar sound signature.  The thing is that I don't any pair of IEM's...

    LCD-2 vs LCD-x not sure which to buy!

    Now I have a new problem, I was just gifted the hifiman he-400i's, so now I am still deciding whether I want to get a LCD-2 or wait and get the LCD-x or LCD-3.  Now that I have this hifiman he-400i, I am now debating whether I should get the LCD's or the shure se846 as I don't own any IEM's...

    LCD-2 vs LCD-x not sure which to buy!

      I found both headphones to be very comfortable so that is not a problem to me.  I will definitely have to try the Oppo Pm-1 and he-400i's somewhere.  I have doubt that there can be headphones that are faster than the LCD-x, but that remains to be seen.  Not sure where I can give the he-400i's...

    What are the best IEM's under 1000$?

     I did switch to optical, and it did help but I still do hear it.  I have tested this hissing without any cable plugged into the unit and it is still present.

    What are the best IEM's under 1000$?

     My experience of over ear headphone listening experience ranges from, Audeze LCD-3, Audiotechnica m50, Beyerdynamic Custom One pro and DT990, and the my v-moda m100's.  M50's lacked soundstage with me, decent detail in sound not the greatest and didn't have much distinct characteristics. ...

    What are the best IEM's under 1000$?

    So a full size headphone amp will not work with IEM's.  Can these IEM's sound good on the go or is that just not the case.  I want something more portable but to still have some epic sound quality.
