    Stock Monoprice 8323 3.5mm chord question.

    I dont know about sound quality, I am sure its better, but will never ever A/B, but the vmoda cables are wonderful + let you control your mobile device with a 1 or 3 button remote built in. I just got the audioequip replacement headband and its a real increase in comfort. I dont know why those...

    Skullcandy Hesh 2.0 Review - Avoid at all costs.

    I got a pair that came with a laptop I just bought. Its very fun clear and nonfatiguing. Its signature is alot like my Hd25i-II. It might replace my m80 at work because of comfort issues.   Bonus... Hesh 2 with vmoda cables are great :)

    Philips Fidelio S1 and S2 - New IEMs with semi-closed back

    The S2 is what I think people mean they say musical. It is super easy to get lost in the layers of music. I really feel its the difference between open cans and closed cans, but in iem form. I really love the fit with the comply comfort tips.

    Schiit Magni Headphone Amplifier

    I am streaming iphone>lod>RCA>magni wih my q701, and for some reason eq setting flat is so much better than off. I think iTunes has preset eq on the file if you have eq off, which seems counterintuitive. I don't know if it's the volume decrease, but I've gone from overly bright to more much...

    LG Quadbeat 2 Impressions Thread

    Its like why do lumias come with such good cameras? Answer: they need to give people a reason to buy instead of the apple / samsung phone. Htc has sound, Motorola has battery life, Nokia has camera and LG has... headset?

    Philips Fidelio S1 and S2 - New IEMs with semi-closed back

    Comparing the Fidelio S2 vs LG Quadbeat, the S2 has a much greater sense of space and separation. Things that reverberate, like a bongo drum or deep, slow vocals resonate silky smooth.   I was surprised how capable the Quadbeat really is, its a wonderful value at $20. The difference between...

    Good phones and usb dac/amp or rely on my HP beats audio and get better ones?

    I just got a new HP laptop. I couldn't believe how muddy the speakers sounded when I was loading iTunes. Checked the beats audio on the bottom and it comes out of the factory with the bass boosted to max.   It sounds fine when you turn that crap off, I just find it ridiculous that people...

    Comfortable headphones at $50

    Creative Aurvana Live if they go back on sale (was $55 a few weeks ago)  JVC HA-RX 700 is suprisingly good for $35. Make sure you let them run for a day or two before you try them, its screeches for the first few hours > then sounds pretty good after a while. I think it must be gunk on the...

    Question on which Headphones are better.

    Quote: Soundwise they sound like they are up my alley, but I'm afraid of comfort issues with the m-80. Hoping the m-100 will sort that out for me.    edit: reason is cuz i have a large head, Q701 barely fit lol

    Question on which Headphones are better.

    Quote: M-80, HD25, DT1350 all look really good and I think its a matter of which one fits your style the most (shallow i know) between the three.

    Need Legit Headphones. Got $150

    Quote: I was surprised to find that "punchy" really accurately describes the bass on the HD25-1ii. Its like a tiny leprechaun boxing your drums, and I was surprised to find it quite enjoyable

    Need legit headphones. Got $150

    Quote: Bass isn't really my thing, but just for technical knowledge - can IEMs out-produce bass heavy headphones like say the sony XB series? I would have thought they would run into physical limitations.
