    Best Studio Headphones

    My recommendation is ATH-M50x. It is not so expensive, but very good for monitoring. Bass is moderately strong. It is the newest cans among my headphone collection.   MDR-7520 is also my favorite. Its sound is not so flat, but you can hear very subtle detail.   My best favorite is K701...

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    I disliked HD700 because sibliance is very harsh. So I have thrown away HD700 into a junk box. Recently, I changed the cable to doublehelix's balanced Molecule OCC. Hmm, sound becomes very mild. Now HD700 is one of my favorites.

    Luxman New DAC : DA-06

    Quote: Yes, both are mine. I had reserved DA-06 last December.   The sound of DA-06 and P-700u combination is amazing. Very very transparent and clear. But DA-06 have an issue around USB that is controversial among japanese audiophile. When the music start through USB, you can hear the...

    Sony MDR MA 900 (new release from Sony)

    Quote:   I tested the MA500 at nearly electronic shop. Now I have the MA900. The MA500 has more bass and less treble than the MA900.  The MA900 is obviously clearer than the MA500. I will not recommend the MA500. If you do not have so much money, you should buy the MA300.

    Final Thoughts: Sony MDR-XB1000 vs. Ultrasone Pro 900. Who is the Bass KING? ** Pictures **

    I feel resonance sound like a cave at mid-high of XB1000. It seemed to be caused by its tubular ear pads.

    Beyerdynamic A1 Clone YS-A1

    I once had a similar A1 clone, Fang Audio FA-1. It came with 230V setup, so I must modify toroidal transformer (Noratel, 15V+15V 1A+1A). Of course, FA1 is not a YS-A1. But I imagine the sound is similar. It seems that the main circuit board of YS-A1 is almost identical to FA-1. YS-A1's...

    The "Lovely Cube" Headphone Amp (Lehmann Black Cube Linear Clone)

    Building quality of Lovery Cube is great, but I can hear slight hum noise anyway when I use low-Z and high sensitivity headphones. It may be designed for middle-Z or hi-Z headphones.

    Just announced: Luxman P-700u balanced headphone amp

    Very neutral and transparent sound without any excitement and stimulation. I feel especially DENON AH-D7000 works fine with this amplifier. LECUA electronic volume system is quite smooth. Someone says 'a stiff formal sound', I think so, too. Everything is within the limit of assumption. 'The...

    Just announced: Luxman P-700u balanced headphone amp

    Today, I've set P-700u to my bedroom. I can't tell any difference of sound between P-700u and other cheap amplifiers, lol. But I am really astonished by the super fat power cable comes with P-700u.

    Schiit Owners Unite

    I have Valhalla. Its sound is very high speed and wide ranged. I use Valhalla with HD650, and it works very fine. I was impressed by very nice looking and durability.

    Denon AH-D7000

    Urushi (not 'Urashi') coating with metal leaf is one of the traditional japanese handcraft. It is expensive, but not affect to sound quality. Unless you want to buy a folkcraft art, this elaborate finish does not have any value.

    If you had a $10,000 dollar budget.

    Crane Song HEDD192 ($3200) SPL Tube Vitalizer ($2400)   I prefer studio effects to enhance music. Vertigo VSM-2 Full Version ($10000) Weiss EQ1 LP ($10000) mmmm, too expensive.
