    Will a headphone amp get rid of the 'hiss' noise?

    Noob here, please bear with me.   I have the Roland Duo Capture (UA-11) USB, which works perfect in every respect except when the volume is turned high, at which point there is a noticeable hissing noise. The noise is gone at slightly lower volumes. I am wondering if this noise is present at...

    Logitech UE 500 IEM - Micro Review

    A few beginning points. I am in my mid-50's and have never used any device with IEM or ear buds. Never owned an iPhone or all that. Always listened to music with 'on' or 'over' the ear full size phones. I had a portable rig with an original Sony Walkman in 1980 but I only used it on the bus with...

    NEED ADVICE: Looking for low impedance, sub $100, over ear headphone that can run properly amp-less.

    Models like the k240 (55ohms), mdr-v6 (60ohms), senn 595 look to be too high impedance to run off my laptop. Could I get some recommendations that fit my criteria?   Thanks

    Noobie needing some experienced advice

    I've been using an fairly decent headset with my laptop for gaming/movies/music which I've had for about 5 years now.

    Received AKG K240s...

    Received my AKG K240S today (55 ohms). First impression... they sound nothing like what I was expecting. From certain posts, I was expecting a muddy/loose bass (ala Portapro-ish) along with plenty of coloration, but there's nothing of the sort to be found. They are much closer to neutral than...

    Recommendation for something similar to AKG K240 Monitors...

    Hi, I am listening to my AKG K240 Monitors 600 ohms (NOT the Studios) from both my ODAC+O2 amp and my vintage Nakamichi receiver, and I must say I am impressed by the sound considering it's relatively old and cheaper than other headphones. I actually prefer the sound to the Beyer DT 880s as it...
