    Differences in soundstage and imaging in IEMs?

    I've been experimenting with EQ on a few IEMs, in particular the Dunu Zen Pro and the Etymotic ER2SE. For both, I have done my best to match (or at least get close to) the response of my other open back headphones by using sine sweeps. For the most part I've achieved very good results, as for...

    Headphone drivers and performance differences

    When looking at measurements of headphones with different driver types, I see many similarities between headphones with the same driver type, as to be expected. For example, we see dynamic driver headphones such as the HD650, DT880, and AKG K701 have a similar tilt in THD starting from about 100...

    Equalizing headphones to your ears (with in ear binaural microphones)

    I'm not sure where to post anything EQ related, as there are multiple EQ threads in many different places. Since what I am doing requires a computer and software, I thought I should post it here.   I want to share with everyone what I've been experimenting with, which is measuring headphones...

    Recommendation for over-ear or in-ear headphones ($500)

    Hey, so I have a budget for some headphones in the $500 range. I currently use mostly the Senn HD650 at home and the Klipsch X10 on the go. I really like warm sound with neutral non-emphasized treble like the HD650. So, I have been eyeballing the Klipsch X20i for a while, and they are apparently...

    IEM driver size: Does it make a big difference?

    I have recently become interested in IEMs due to their convenience and isolation. I currently have the Klipsch X10, which are very impressive sounding to me. I was curious about how the size of the IEM driver openings affects sound in general. With IEMs like the X10 and the Shure SE models, the...

    Sennheiser IE8 or IE80: both similar to HD650?

    I want to purchase some new iems that sound similar to the HD650s. I've read reviews that say the IE8s are too bassy, and that the IE80 fix this problem. However, I would prefer bass that is similar to the H650s, so would the IE8 be even more bassy than the HD650, or would the IE80 be less or...

    Cell phone interference with O2 amp?

    Hey guys, so I had something weird happen the past week I never noticed before. When my phone is sending and receiving messages, my amp makes an electric noise through the headphones for a few seconds. I know it's definitely interference, I just don't understand why it happens. Has anyone had...

    Anyone listen to Christian Contemporary?

    I am really big into the Christian artists and bands before the turn of the century and now. Independent artists such as Steven Curtis Chapman, Michael W. Smith, and Twila Paris who had their start in the 80s, and all at one point won the Dove award multiple times. They are some of my absolute...

    Can a mixer sound great with headphones? You bet!

    Yeah, you guys are probably rolling your eyes, but I kid you not, I'm having a blast with a Makie ProFX12 mixer my dad picked up for $300. It sounds just as good as my vintage Nakamichi CDP and amp, probably better. Tried the DT 880s and HD 580s on it. I'm also quite surprised at how neutral it...

    Need help understanding output impedance...

    Hey guys, So, even after reading this: http://www.head-fi.org/a/headphone-impedance , I'm still having a hard time understanding what headphone out level is supposed to mean. I have this old DAT player that has a maximum output level of 30 mW for each channel, and it says 32 ohms output. Here...

    Good DAC+Amp for a few headphones? (e.g. DT 880, Shure 940, HD 650)

    Hey guys, I'm currently saving some money for a good DAC and amp I can use with a couple headphones. I currently have a Beyer DT 880, Shure SRH 940, and I'm planning on getting the HD 650 soon. I'm kind of new to all this, so I don't have much experience with amps and DACs. In another forum I...

    Looking for new mid/high end phones

    Hey guys, so I recently got the Shure SRH940s, and they just blew me away! I love everything about them; the only complaint I have is the somewhat unbalanced mid-treble, making male voices and certain instrument sound slightly unnatural. They are forward sounding, and may have a bit of sibilance...
