    Size of SA6 in-ear?

    Oh no, i just received my SA6's. But they have clearly been used. The seal of the package (the one with the earphones inside, which was in an other package) was broken, there where scratches on the traveling case, glue on one of the earphones and the silcon's seemed dirty. Awww . Well...

    Sound card advice

    CPU usage is indeed an non-issue, especially with the speed of any modern pc these days. I am using the EMU0404 for quite a while (an year and a half I think) and its still putting an smile on my face every time I turn it on and listen to the refined, fully controlled sound its able to send...

    Poll: Date for Netherlands Head-Fi Meet 2008

    Okay, I finally voted . (both options are fine with me, i think, and it's "only" 2:30hr with public transport) Quote: Indeed! Been a while. What happened? Well, since I bought the EMU I can say that I am pretty satisfied with my PC-as-source rig, but still Head-Fi kept poking me...

    X-Fi Elite Pro w/ EMU 0404 - Questions!

    I don't know about you guys, but using the EMU-0404 for games and especially with movies is IMO very pleasing. I even threw my Soundblaster Live! out of my new pc into some random hardware box lying around, since i was only using it for some crappy speakers, and onboard will do speakers just...

    Poll: Date for Netherlands Head-Fi Meet 2008

    Hmm, long time no see all you headphone-loving people. At least not since "You last visited: 09-19-2007" according to the Welcome thingy. I see lots of things changed here (like, why all the smiley's are broken for one?), not so much in my 'audio rig' though, but ah well.... at least i...

    Can't decide what soundcard to order...

    Just my idea, but external devices have a edge versus internal devices, since there is no presence of any digital noise, radio frequency/electromagnetic interference and other undesired things that camp in the internals of a pc. With my E-MU 0404USB i'm not even thinking of getting a extra...

    DT 770 and EMU0404

    The E-MU 0404 USB will do 32Ohm fine, but you would be WAY better of with the 250Ohm DT. I would buy a Amp instead of the E-MU in your case, or try to trade the 32Ohm DT770 for a 250Ohm version.

    Is copper warmer because of signal loss?

    I always love these "YES" "NO" "YES" "NO", discussions. It is very easy to test if cables make a difference, just ask headroom to re-test the frequency (+ all other) graphs with a other cable. Until the day I see such results I think all is in your head. Btw, it is fun to see that a...

    the iGrado versus the akg k81dj!!

    The K81DJ aint worth 30 bucks if you'd asked me. I am pretty sure the ES7 are a big improvement. The K81 is just 100% bloated, undefined, artificial base. I don't like it one bit.

    Buy a amp with a 'Bass' and 'Crossfeed' knob. I cannot recommend any, but i am sure there are others who can.

    Soundcard and heaphones calibration

    Why not just wait for the stuff, listen to it 'out of the box' and remember it will be "the best possible". (unless you can configure it to be bit-perfect) EQ'ing is a bad thing (since the music has been EQ'ed more then enough already, thats why modern pop music sounds like Sh!t), and digital...

    Soundcard and heaphones calibration

    Sound isn't defined only by the signature frequency response, there are a 1001 variables which can make your rig sound different then a other one. If you can EQ a headphone to perfection, all headphones would have a little DSP integraded with the needed EQ-effects to make it perfectly flat...

    Best Speakers for Mac!!

    Why would speakers sound/handle different on a Mac? Same question for the C2D.

    Couple of EMU 0404 USB questions.

    You can always EQ the 'Ssssss' away. (says "he who dislikes DSP'ing")
