    Not actually buying headphones is addictive... Help!

    So I've been saving and saving for a mid/hi-fi setup for a long time, and now that I'm finally here, I don't know which direction I want to take it. Originally, I was going to get the Mad Dogs and the Aune T1, and call it a day, since that was all I thought I'd be able to practically afford...

    Final Budget Amp Selection - Project Ember vs Musical Paradise MP-301

    What are the different components to a home audio setup?

    Just curious to see what components one can add to a home headphone/audio setup. By components I mean things like: headphones, amp, DAC, computer, CD player, turntable, or an equalizer. What else could you add that might make a difference?

    ***CLOSED*** Back, and in need of help - setting up a system, and the Topping TP30

    So, I've been away from head-fi for a little while, but I'm "back" per say. I'm looking to build both a good portable system and a good desktop system, both on a small budget as I'm 15. I'm new to this whole amping thing. I'd like to acquire at least a good portable and desktop amp, as well as...

    This really IS bad for your wallet. o.O

    Just today, I spent $25 on 2 cases, and a line out cable for my itouch. Also, my mom bought me M6’s. And hopefully, if the Pro Alpha deal lasts, I’ll be ordering those tomorrow, too. Did I mention I got my RE2’s YESTERDAY? /end rant about this never ending hole begging me to throw money into it

    Amping my IEM's

    Will it produce better sound quality if I turn the volume up on my itouch all  the way, and keep the volume all the way down on my E5? Or if I turn it up on the E5 and down on the itouch? One thing I have noticed is that if used the first way, there is no hissing at all.

    Detachable Cables

    Are what I'm looking for in my next IEM's.   I have Kicker eb141's, Metro Fi 220's, and Super.Fi 5's. As far as sound signature goes, I'm open to almost anything that has a good sound QUALITY. The only catch: the IEM's must have detachable cables, and preferably be under $50.   I have...

    Super.Fi 5 Initial Impressions

    THE BELOW-MENTIONED (IS THAT GRAMMATICALLY CORRECT?) THOUGHTS ARE MINE, AND ONLY MINE. YOU MAY DISAGREE WITH THEM, AND THAT SUCKS FOR YOU.   Well, I haven't listened to them for long, just got them, but here what I think right off the bat:   Packaging: Quite nice, gets the job done...

    Question about the Meelec ht21's?

    Does anyone think they'll be on sale for under the pre order price ($35) anytime soon?  Or should I just bite on the pre order savings?

    beyerdynamic dt 235   How are they for the price?   I'm a bit of a basshead, but really, I don't care about the quantity so much as the quality. Mind you, I would like portables that are "fun" sounding. How do...

    SoundMagic PL-30 + Fiio E5 vs. Brainwavs M1

    Which one is a better deal, the PL-30 with the amp at $45, or the M1's at $40? Note that I'm a bit of a basshead :P   And no, I can't get the M1's for $30, I'll be getting these in like, 3 months.
