    Still looking for the right pair of headphones: advice?

    I recently posted this thread: http://www.head-fi.org/t/640363/a-beginner-question-never-had-amped-headphones-before   However, after doing my research, the K701's and K702's appear to be possibly weaker on the bass than I might want.   Is there a next-best option in that price-range, or...

    Upgrade from or to my Denon D5000

    After having the denon d5000 for nearly 2 years and buying cheaper mid fi (such as the AKG K702) cans along the way I have decided I like the denons sound the best.

    What are the most overpriced headphone you ever bought ?

    The title says it all. I recently got a pair of AERIAL7 A-List absolute royale used (paid 100$), but they are selling at 300$ according to multiple retail website.   These cans are fancy, they look good when they are on the table but once you put them on you head you like like an idiot...

    Best IEM's for gaming/music

    So, I was looking to get some new headphones. IEM's hit the marks when it comes to portability and being able to listen to in public/working out, but can they match/near match the performance of my AKG k702 annies?

    DAC/Amp for AKG K702?

    I plan on getting a pair of these cans in the next couple of months. I know that they need an amp/DAC to perform well, and I just wanted to see my option. My first choice would be a Schiit Modi/Magni combo, but honestly that costs more than I would like. Would it even be worth it to just buy a...
