    PRESS RELEASE: Bang & Olufsen announces BeoPlay H3 and H6 headphones

    I use H6 on nexus5/iPhone5, ipad and macbook pro with no issue. You won't get them to play at ear piercing level but casual listening level is no problem. And of course this is without any amps.

    Audeze LCD-2 Orthos

    Quote: I have heard many headphone and I think LCD-2 has proper bass IMO. Maybe a bit too much for my taste. I don't know if it is your source/amp or your ears that are too used to IEMs/headphones you have owned. Try hooking them up to better gears. It doesn't require arms and legs to...

    Same Old Schiit? Balanced Research and Valhalla Amp Giveaway

    Do you have balanced headphones? If so, which ones? No.   If not, are you looking at balanced headphones or a balanced amp in the future? I am planning to purchase balanced cable for my HE500 soon. I am very interested in purchasing Schiit balanced amp.   For balanced headphone...

    The Stax thread (New)

    I would still keep my O2 + 717 rig over any other dynamic/ortho rig I have had. Price difference isn't that much compared to good solid dynamic rig anyway.

    Review: Audeze LCD-2 (r1 & r2), HiFiMan HE-6, Stax SR-507, Stax OII MKI/BHSE, et al

    Great review! I bet a lot of time and effort were put into this. Thanks.   I agree with most of the things mentioned here regarding LCD2, HE6, HD800, JH13, O2 but one thing I disagree is that HE6 lacks bass compared to HD800. HE6 produce plenty of bass even with my not so impressive rig. I...

      Quote: Like Aflac already mentioned, I was referring to someone else's headphone stands. I guess those posts were deleted and made the confusion. I have seen many of your stands and always thought that they were great. Wish I had skills to make one like that.

    Recommend me some good $800+/- complete rigs for home use

    I would personally recommend Matrix mini-i (~$300) + HD600 or DT880 or K701 (~$200-$300). You would have to read reviews on these headphones to figure out what kind of sound signature you want. But personally these three headphones are best bang for buck headphones in this price range (HD650...

    Where do the Ultrasone Edition 10 fit in to the ranking of high end headphones?

    I am reluctant to say that Edition 10 will be the very best of high-end headphones. However, I believe that it can compete well with other high-end flagship headphones that are currently in production. I won't be able to write a full-review on them but when the time comes more people will get...

    What are your most comfortable cans for all-day use?

    I have tried many headphones and O2 and HD800 are the most comfortable headphones. T1, HD600/650, K601, D7000, AD900 are very comfortable as well, but not as comfortable as those two I mentioned. Headphoens like K701, most Grados, HE5, LCD2, K1000 were uncomfortable on my head.

    Audeze LCD2 vs Sennheiser HD800??

    I see your point. I did not dislike the sound of LCD2, I actually liked it. It was just that I liked HD800 and O2 more. Also, LCD2 was very uncomfortable on my head and that was the major deal breaker for me. HD800, O2 and Edition 10 are all very comfortable and can wear them for hours. But...

    Audeze LCD2 vs Sennheiser HD800??

    All these praises about LCD2 makes me wonder if I should give them a second chance. When I compared LCD2 with HD800 side by side, I preferred HD800 over LCD2. Maybe I was too quick to make the decision to let LCD2 go. Maybe I will buy them again later.    I often see people consider HD800's...

    Ultrasone edition 10 "THE BUTTERFLY" initial impressions

    Received two pairs of Edition 10 today (long story) and opened one up for listening. These are serial number 4XX and I don't hear any exaggerated high frequency sound. I only hear sibilance on the bad recordings. However, it seems like I can hear sibilance more clearly on Edition 10 when...

    The Stax thread (New)

    I have received SRD7 that I have bought from Spritzer a couple days ago. This little amp connected to a cheap vintage integrated amp sounds really good. I am actually quite surprised because many people here said SRD7 has its limitation when used with 007. Now, I haven't heard BHSE or WES or...

    K-702 is better than Beyer T1 in a number of ways…

    Quote: I had the similar experience with T1 + Phonitor set-up. I liked it more than T1 + Apache combo. I didn't think K701 sounded good on Phonitor but I don't really like K701 in general so I don't know if it's a good match or not.
