    Jumping from the HD650 to the HD800.

    I need some input from people that has heard both or own both the HD650 and HD800. I am very much enjoying the HD650 with the Modi 2 Uber + Valhalla 2 setup and I'd like to know if jumping to the HD800 can take the experience even further. If so, to what degree (huge/obvious or slight/subtle)...

    Swan M10 vs Swan M200MKII

    I am looking at these 2 Swan speakers. Is the M200MkII worth the price difference from the M10 (night and day difference?), or is the M10 the better bang for the buck compared to the M200MKII? Keep in mind the M200MkII is about twice the price of the M10.   I just need some nice speakers...

    Been over 2 months and headphones haven't arrived yet. Need help.

    Looking for different Audio Technica AD900 Pads.

    The stock AD900 pads really irritate my skin and makes it itchy so I need something else to replace it because I can't wear these headphones for more than 5 minutes, but I love them! I searched around and found that Audio Cubes has some solutions like the ATH-W5000 replacement pads, but it's way...

    Can I trust Amazon on my purchase of the AKG 240S?

    I just now found a "Just Launched" seller named "DJEquipmentStore" on and they are selling brand new AKG 240S for 49.99 + shipping. That's a STEAL! So I bought it right away. But since they are "Just Launched" I am really worrying if I made a bad decision because there is no reviews...

    Denon D2000/D5000 vs Ultrasone PRO 900

    I have been set on getting an Ultrasone PRO 900, but I've been looking around and found that the Denon D2000/D5000 also compete well against the PRO 900 within the same price range. I want to get one last pair of closed headphones that will provide a different sound signiture from the headphones...

    Sennheiser HD 600 with FiiO e7 + e9 combo.

    Has anyone ever tried these together? If so, how does it sound when playing a large range of rock music from indie to metal?          Also, would the FiiO e7 alone be able to work with the HD 600s? Or is the Fiio e9 definitely needed as well? Thanks in advance!
