    Portable Tube Amps

    Hi guys,   I only have a portable rig right now, and that's probably not going to change anytime soon. I currently amp my headphones through an iBasso D-Zero. It works well, but I'd like to upgrade to better sound. I've never had a "proper" high-end amp before, so I'd like to see what I'm...

    Help?

    Hi guys,   So I've narrowed down my next set of cans to either the Denon D2000 or the Hifiman HE-400. Heard great things about both, but I'm honestly stuck. They both have their own great traits, and I just can't decide. I'll be amping them out of an iBasso D-Zero. Can some owners or...

    Decisions, decisions...

    Hi guys,    So I'm treating myself for my birthday with a new pair of headphones. I listen to rock, alternative, and acoustic. I have rock and alternative pretty well covered with my V-Moda M80s and Grado 225i, so I'm looking for something that does acoustic very well, but preferably not at...

    Looking to move on from my Grados.

    Hey guys. So about a year ago, I made my first foray into the land of quality headphones with the Grado 225is. They sound great, but I've been looking to experiment more. I listen to only rock; I wouldn't consider myself a basshead, but I do love my bass, which was one of my problems with the...

    Does the Total Airhead work on Android?

    Hey guys. I've been thinking about getting the total airhead dac/amp, but I don't know if the dac, the part that i actually need, works on portable devices. I know it says "portable" amp, but I've read articles that say that the dac only works through USB, which my android phone doesnt have? So...

    Replacing the headband on the Grado225is?

    Hey guys! I've had my Grado's for a while now, and I have to say, they're pretty fricking awesome. Excuse my lack of eloquence, but that's all I have to say about them. Anyway, I've replaced the earpads already, making it a lot more comfortable. However, the head band is still pretty stiff and...

    Is there any way to change mp3s into FLAC, AAC, etc?

    hey guys. So I've been reading around the Internet, and apparently, mp3s suck. Now that I've got a amp and some killer headphones, I want to make sure I'm getting the absolute best sound quality possible. So my question is, is there any way to convert 320 Kbps mp3s into FLAC or AAC, or...

    I'm new at this.

    Hey guys. So, I've recently purchased my first pair of headphones, the Sennheiser 438s. They sound great, but I've read a few things about " burning in". What does this mean, and how does it affect the sound? Also, what's a headphone amp? Thanks.

    Which Sennheisers?

    Hey guys. So I've been looking to buy some better headphones, and have heard some good things about Sennheisers. I was just wondering, which of their cans would you recommend, cause I'm having some trouble deciding. I've looked through their products, and I'm leaning towards the HD 438s or HD...
