    HiFiman HE-500 (HE as in High End) Proving to be an enjoyable experience in listening.

    I found a great alternative to the stock velour pads, the Beyer DT series pads. I took them off my TYGR 300R. They sound very similar to the stock velour, just as good bass and dynamics, maybe a little less bright, which for my tastes is perfect. But more importantly, they are much more...

    HiFiman HE-500 (HE as in High End) Proving to be an enjoyable experience in listening.

    Yeah I did try those velpads, excellent midrange and treble but they lack that last bit of sub bass extension I'm looking for. Still, I may just use those and experiment with EQ in the sub bass, the HE-500 does take very well to EQ in my experience.

    Earbuds Round-Up

    I've been experimenting with some EQ on the VE Monk (Plus) and wow... I'm actually extremely impressed by how much you can improve the sound. I made an EQ profile that raises the sub bass, gets rid of the upper bass bloat, reduces lower treble/upper mids forwardness around 4kHz, and increases...

    Focal Clear Mg Review & Measurements

    Yes I do EQ the MGs a little, mainly to address the very slight hump at 1.3 kHz and reducing the small peaks at 5.5 and 10.5 kHz, which are far less present than the original Clear. I prefer slightly recessed upper mids than Harman, so I leave the 2-4 kHz region as it is on the Clear MG. But as...

    Comment by 'DivineCurrent' on listing 'SOLD: Custom Paracord Braided Cable, 3.5mm connection (Choose your own termination)'

    I'm not sure if these 3.5mm Amphenol connectors will fit the D9200, they may be too wide for the opening.

  10. Hifiman HE-500 XLR cable (Original)

    This cable came with an old HE-500 I bought second hand. I believe it is the original silver plated XLR cable that came with the HE-500. It is pretty thin, but not the most flexible cable in the world, so keep that in mind. It is however very durable feeling and pretty light. I am pricing this...

  14. Audio Technica ATH-R70X

    Up for sale is a good condition Audio Technica ATH-R70X. I got it in a trade about a year ago. There are one or two minor scratches on the metal headband, otherwise the condition is excellent. Excellent sounding headphones, but I have moved on and need to get rid of stuff. Asking $170 shipping...

    Under rated Headphones?

    That's really interesting about the V-Moda. I'm actually not surprised since according to innerfidelity measurements at least, the bass is clean and very low distortion. Those open back headphone often struggle very much with sub bass. Even some of my IEMs have cleaner sub-bass than my Focal...

    Focal Clear Mg Review & Measurements

    The Clear MG renders piano in such an amazing and unique way that I have not heard any other headphone do, aside from other Focals like the Elex and original Clear. It retains the subtleties and dynamics of the real piano itself, you can feel the percussive strike completely uncompressed. The...

    TOTL disappointments

    Beyerdynamic T1, 1st Gen. After using the HD650 for so long, switching to the T1 sounded super metallic and unnatural, with literally all music genres. That's when I realized I much prefer a warmer, more laid back speaker-like presentation. I was also disappointed by the 8XX, but I realize that...

    Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee Review & Measurements

    I'm curious about the Dekoni Fenestrated Sheepskin pads, I like the stock pads sound but I always wanted just a bit more sub bass extension and detail. Do you think those Dekoni pads help with that?

    LCD-5 is emh, interesting…

    The A90 is more than plenty to drive the LCD-5. I have an RME ADI-2 DAC that pushes my HE-500 (89 db/mW sensitivity, 38 ohms) to absurd levels, and that is less powerful than the A90. I suggest trying out some EQ. If you don't have it already, try Equalizer APO and use some kind of Sine wave...

    Moondrop in-ear monitors Impressions Thread

    I have smaller than average ear canals, so the Spring Tips M size fits me perfectly. In fact, I'm using them with my other IEMs at the moment, Zen Pro and FDX1, and they fit me just as well if not better than Spinfit. I just got the Kato in this weekend, and I am very impressed! They fill the...

    Drop + JVC HA-FDX1 Dual Carbon IEM...available in the US!

    That’s great to hear your positive thoughts on the Timeless, I want to try them soon. I already thought the bass was very clean and controlled on the FDX1. That supposed soft presentation was the only thing keeping me from trying it, and I use EQ a lot so the other complaints about sibilance and...

    Drop + JVC HA-FDX1 Dual Carbon IEM...available in the US!

    It’s not necessary because they are interchangeable. Since the nozzles rotate, you can make the left one the right, and vice versa.

    Drop + JVC HA-FDX1 Dual Carbon IEM...available in the US!

    I have a question for all FDX1 owners. How many of you got the FDX1 from the first (or maybe second) drop when it was first announced in late 2019? The reason I ask is because I decided to pick up another pair earlier this year, and it seems like the metal body is not as smooth as my original...

    Etymotic Ear Tip Options

    Commenting on tip options for the ER2 series, I'm getting the best seal from the Spinfit CP100 (Extra Small size) with nozzle adapters from Azla eartips. I happened to have these adapters that came with SednaEarFit tips, so I put them on backwards (on purpose) on my ER2SE. That thick part is a...
