    ATTENTION: WALL OF TEXT, READ IT AT YOUR OWN RISK :P   Hi guys! I'm new to this forum and new to the world of audiophiles. Until now I've been using a pair of Koss UR55, they served me pretty well, but one year ago I accidentally cut the wire running for a phone call. I fixed it with my...

    Looking for Shure 940 sound in another headphone

    Hello all,   Based on all the great reviews about the clarity of the Shure 940's I overlooked the comments about build quality and purchased them. I figured that the "cheap plastic" wouldn't be a concern for me since I'm generally easy on my stuff and it had the nice hard case included. Well...

    Looking to upgrade for $300 or less

    I currently have the Sony MDR-7506 and the Grado SR80i.  I love both of these headphones but I am now starting to see the limitations of them both.  I love the fact that they both have a flat response and provide an accurate reproduction of what the artist intended the music to sound like.  ...

    Did I make a mistake? (AKG K 272HD)

    Hi guys, I recently purchased a pair of AKG K 272HS headphones. They arrived today and compared to my Koss Porta Pros they seemed a bit muffled. I understand they are closed vs. open headphones but I'm slightly disappointed.   I do have to set the volume much higher so I was wondering if the...

    Closed Headphones for ~$200?

    Hey guys,   I'm looking for some closed headphones to use at work. I would use my MS-1is but they would annoy the hell out of my co-workers. Currently I am using my etymotic IEMs, but they are kinda uncomfortable after an hour or so.   I primarily listen to indie, post and alternative...

    Does price determine how big of a jump I will get with sound qaulity?

    I'm looking to purchase a new headphone and I'm tempted by the Ultrasone edition 8. It is also expensive but I have no issues with that if it's going to have great quality. Question I have is how much better is the sound quality to something that's lower in price? Is the jump in sound quality...

    DT 880 PRO recommended for someone who loved the DT 990 PRO ?

    Simple enough, would you say that the DT 880 PRO would be a good recommendation as someone who loved the DT 990 PRO ?    I've heard people say it sounds same but less bass, but I've also heard people say it sounds quite a bit different after all it is a different headphone entirely.   ...

    I'm replacing my A900s with K272HDs. Will I be disappointed?

    My Audio Technica A900 headphones made it five and a half years of pretty much constant daily use (maybe 10-12 hours a day).  But in the last few months the arm holding the ear cup to the band has failed on both sides so I think it's time to retire them.  I wanted to try something new, and have...

    Looking for ATH-M50 alternative

    So the right channel on my ATH-M50's died last night during an online gaming session...guess my sweaty ears finally did them in. The heat and humidity so far this summer has been brutal, plus I tend to sweat more than the average person, which resulted in me constantly having to take off my...

    Can't deside, help me choose cans for ~150e

    There's just too many apparently good headphones on the market. The more I read review the more I'm lost. I listen to almost everything, tho I'm a bit rock/metal biased. I'm not bass-shy, but I like it tight and controlled rather than booming over everything. I don't know if I like neutrality or...
