    Good amplifier for AUDEZE LCD-2 Classic and MrSpeakers AEON Flow

    I have the AFO and I have two recommendations for you: A) the Schiit Lyr 2 or Lyr 3 if you what a desktop amp. B) the Cayin C5 if you want portable. All these pair very well with the AFO

    Looking for headphones with sound signature similar to HE4XX

    Thanks! I have an HD800 which is absolutely outstanding for my classical music, best headphone for that genre, and I was so lucky to find it for US$ 540. I prefer warm headphones, but the thing that caught me about the HE4XX was its vocal presence, which synergizes very well with some of my...

    Wives and the hobby

    Very wise words! I do believe in 110% honesty as the basis for any human relationship, more so in a marriage. Good to know about the wacky purchases tip :beyersmile:. My bride has her weaknesses in this regard (shoes and watches from AliExpress)

    Wives and the hobby

    Hi all, I'm about to get married and I'd like to know about the experience of fellow forum members with wives and the hobby. Tips, experiences, recommendations, all of them are very welcome. In case that it helps, one thing in favor of the hobby is that my bride loves music and I've given her...

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    What about without box? How much does it affect the value? Both are 120 or each one? The problem in Colombia is that we don't have any official representative, therefore getting these can become pretty expensive because of the taxes and int shipping

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    Hi all, I have the chance to get a used HD800 from a audio engineer for US$ 600 (headphones here in Colombia lose a lot of value second hand because of the reduced market). I'm a classic music fan and I'm seriously considering them. Based on your experience, could you please give a list of what...

    Massdrop x Focal Elex Review & Measurements

    The Elex is no slouch in soundstage, yet it it's not it's defining trait because its dynamic and details somehow make it less perceivable. @robo24 is spot on. The Elex and the HD700/800 are completely different headphones which give you different experiences

    Converter for Schiit Bifrost

    I indeed need an output. My computer has USB ports but the Bifrost doesn't. Unfortunately I'm not in the US and I cannot send it to Schiit for an upgrade. Thanks in advance for all your help. Any thoughts?

    Converter for Schiit Bifrost

    My apologies for not being clear. I intend to use the Bifrost as a DAC, so it'll go Tidal(PC) to Bifrost to Lyr2. The PC only has the 3.5mm in/out

    Converter for Schiit Bifrost

    Hi everyone! I got a second hand Bifrost for use at the office, but my computer there only has the 3.5mm input. Do you have any recommendation you can give me to use it? Maybe an adapter, an external soundcard, etc.

    In getting really intrigued. Would you say that they're warm like the AFO, with the engaging factor but greater in technicalities like soundstage and detail retrieval?

    Focal Elear - Impressions Thread

    It looks very interesting. Judging by their specifications it seems that They are aimed to portable use, seems they have high sensitivity and 35 ohms impedance. Furthermore, the pictures shows a 1/4 to 1/8 adapter

    Need help buying headphones Best Open back headphones for gaming, music and movies for $130 or less

    This is going to sound a bit odd but, is it possible for you to get to the forum and get a used AKG K7XX. I'm a gamer too and these are hands down the best gaming option I've tried. It is far ahead of any "gaming" brand headphone I've tried. Furthermore, it does it directly from the PC sound...

    MrSpeakers AEON Flow Open - Impressions Thread

    It occurs because the db levels of a given frequency is not the same on both sides. Normally, all headphones have some imbalance, though they are usually within a given dB range that is not perceivable. The objective way to measure it is by the frequency response of both headphone channels. One...

    MrSpeakers AEON Flow Open - Impressions Thread

    The AFO are a benchmark before comfort. They are more comfortable than any headphone I've had, including the HD700 which is regarded in this area. I think that unless you have a disproportionately large head, you'll feel like they press just the necessary to hold onto your head. I second that...

    Grado Gone Wild!

    I can see several uses: 1) listening in bed without cables, 2) when you travel and you're in a hotel and can't carry your amps, 3) For when you want to roam the house It would be ideal to listen to them; unfortunately, here in Colombia it is not possible to audition a headphone since there are...

    Headphones to feel and enjoy music with wide Soundstage

    I think the AKG K7xx suits your needs. It has a wide soundstage, good instrument separation and it provides enough bass. In case the bass is not enough, there's a simple mod that takes care of that. You can get it in Massdrop for 199. Also, you can get it in the sell forum

    @billbishere Thanks!, I think that is a key aspect, knowing the reviewer preferences and tastes, so it becomes an easier task to figure how much you'd like the headphone. @koover I hope you're enjoying your Lyr 3 with the AFO; after trying it with the Lyr 2 I can't stop wondering how it'll...

    Powerful portable headphone amps

    @moby1974 Remember that power depends both on current and voltage. After reading the specs, the LCD2 has a sensitivity of 101dB/1mw and 70ohms impedance and I feel confident that the Cayin C5 can drive them. See, I have the AKG K7XX which has 105dB/1mw and 62ohms and the Mr. Speakers AEON Flow...
