    Looking for great EDM cans with detail and soundstage for $500

    USB and 3.5mm is all I really need. Anything else is just added bonuses for future upgrades or expansion.   Edit: 1/4" output would be great, obviously.

    Looking for great EDM cans with detail and soundstage for $500

    Thanks for the updated info. The Yulong D100? They do look nice, but might be a bit outside of the budget right now. Do you have any suggestions of a setup to look into (portable or desktop) under $300 for the D5000?

    Quote: The impact of the dac / amp I buy will have much more beneficial impact on these Denon's than the IEM's I might use them on. I see in another Denon-related post you had a list of dac / amps that you had listed, with the Leckerton UHA-6S being one of the better ones. Would buying one...

    Quote: Also, for the open vs closed debate, I do have some concerns either way. Now that the weather is nice, and the windows are open more often, I have to put up with birds, neighbors (apartment complex), and the loud fans from my two AC units. These issues, the rave reviews of the D5000...

    Looking for great EDM cans with detail and soundstage for $500

    Quote: My initial intention with the E17 was to use it with my current GR07's and whatever cans I pickup now. These IEMs don't really need an amp, but the portable USB amp / dac would be a nice touch to use with my laptop, phone, or my computer at work. For right now, I'm more concerned...

    Looking for great EDM cans with detail and soundstage for $500

    After doing quite a bit more reading around here, I think I agree with your choice WiR3D. I have heard a lot of great feedback about the D5000's, especially when comparing to the other popular EDM headphones. They also appear to be a great all-around headphone for other genres. They sound like a...

    Looking for great EDM cans with detail and soundstage for $500

    I have done a lot of searching here on HF, and the internet in general, but most of the results seem to tailor to a more basshead listener. The tracks I enjoy most are the ones that give you great detail, instrument separation, and depth through soundstaging. My listening is split pretty evenly...

    Quote:   I know how you feel. I've been eyeballing the E17 for a while, and am going to be pulling the trigger on one over the next couple days. I am really looking forward to it, but the price hike shocked me a bit.   - Woody

    VSONIC GR07 Impressions Thread

    Has anyone tried a biflange or triflange tip besides HiFiMan's? I am curious if anyone can lend some advice towards their thoughts on the sound on those. I like the detail of the bi-flange tips that come with the GR07, but I'm hoping to find ones with a more comfortable fit and possibly just a...

    Deeper seating foam tips for GR07?

    Quote: Have you noticed a decreased sound stage from those tips? The opening seems rather small and I'm curious how that affects the sound of the GR07.

    Quote: Oh yeah, I've been in love with the GR07's since I got them  Like I mentioned, I never experienced any issues with sibilance even out of the box. I have been playing around with the tips a bit more, too - adjusting the depth they're covering the nozzle, making sure the nozzle is...

    VSONIC GR07 Impressions Thread

    You, sir....       I thought the core would be too hard and would be uncomfortable in the ear, but I can't feel it once it's seated. I will give this a few hours of listening to see how this fares for long-term use.

    Deeper seating foam tips for GR07?

      I just received my Comply T-400 tips today, and have been listening to them for a few hours now on my GR07's. There are some aspects that I'm loving, some that I'm liking, and some I'm not too fond of.   Fit - First, the tips themselves only fit firmly when seated over the wider base of...

      Quote: You could always look into getting new tips, I know the TX-400 have a built-in filter to keep ear wax and other debris out of the phones, there may be other companies with similar ones.   And on that note... I just received my Comply T-400 tips today, and have been...

    VSONIC GR07 Impressions Thread

    Now that I've had a chance to listen to the GR07's for a bit, I think I'm pretty set on using foam tips. What are some recommended models people use besides the stock ones, and how do you find they compare to the stock foam tips? Are there any which don't require constant replacement?   - Woody

    Well, thanks to this very helpful (and incredibly long!) thread, and some advice on another thread I started, I am now awaiting shipment on my GR07's. This will be the first pair of decent headphones for me - I own a pair of Sennheiser HD201's, but c'mon...   These sound like an excellent...
