    Spring Toronto Meet - Saturday May 04, 2013 Impressions

    A big thanks to Jeff for organizing this meet and to everyone for bringing in your gear to share. There were lots of great setups at this meet and I wish I had more time to try them all. In particular, I would have liked to spend more time with the Koss ESP 950s as I have been bit by the...

    Beyerdynamic DT880 + Meier Headfive, Good Combo?

    This may be unpopular...but...

    The V150s sound incredibly muddy. There is no bass nor treble extension - all I hear is a midbass hump. I would much rather spend $20 on KSC75s.

    Do China lied about their gymnast age?

    Is there any need for a DT880 ('05) if you already have a K701?

    Quote: Originally Posted by DoomzDayz I disagree as well, it depends on where in the concert hall you are sitting. DT880's put you closer, where treble is less attenuated. Even with the violin next to my chin, the treble overtones are not as accentuated as it is on the DT880...

    Do not fly with your cMoy amp

    There have been instances in the past where DIY amps such as the CMoy have been confiscated at the security gate. If you must take the amp to your travel destination, put it with your checked baggage.

    Is there any need for a DT880 ('05) if you already have a K701?

    If you are particularly sensitive to sibilance and/or digital clipping in the treble, I would advise against getting the DT880s as they are significantly brighter than the K701. Due to its emphasized highs, I could understand why some find the violins to be very appealing through the DT880s...

    Well, hello there W5000.

    What headphones are you comparing the W5000s with? and on what equipment? Regarding the fit - it may be fine even if the pressure at the top is slight (so long as there is complete seal around your ear). Press the earcups against your head and check if the sound changes. If not, then they...

    Which phones best for female vocals, piano, cymbals!

    If you're on a budget, definitely look into the AKG K501. Female vocals, realistic acoustic instruments ... these are things that it was naturally bred for.

    Troubleshooting: computer makes noises in headphone but not on speakers?

    Please provide more details on what this noise actually is. Is it a hissing noise that you hear? Does it disappear if you don't use the splitter?

    Bass emphasised home amp/dac for HD600 (and maybe others down the track)

    There's an awesome deal on a headfive amp ($160 shipped worldwide) for sale in the amps f/s section. It hasn't been mentioned a lot on the forums recently, but it is certainly a very capable amp w/a slight emphasis on bass. Given your total budget, that should leave enough money for a good DAC.

    Buying audio technica on ebay - warranty?

    Does audio technica honor warranties on products purchased from ebay? More specifically, I'm thinking about buying a w5000 from a US seller on ebay.

    Cans that faded away

    The main reason is probably simply that the IEM market has bloomed with many many new offerings. What might also be happening is that older members who started off with the aforementioned headphones may not be interested in the "recommend me a starter headphone" threads anymore/may not feel as...

    Anime losers meet headphone geeks!

    just stumbled across this site: does anybody know from where the image with girl and the audio technica was taken from? I think I also see an R10, but the pic's too small to confirm.
