    Relatively in-expensive closed-back full-sized headphone recommendations?

    I want to get my girlfriend a nice pair of headphones for Christmas. However, unlike me, she's not an audiophile. She does encourage me, though. Which is awesome, haha!   So what I'm looking for is a full-sized, closed-backed headphone that sounds good directly out of a laptop or iPhone...

    Suggestions to upgrade from ES-7

    Hi everyone, noobie here. I've recently got into the audiophile world and my previous gears are ath-es7 and m50s.   I have listened to the m50s for awhile and sold them as i do not like the m50 sound signature. Find it to have a bit of recessed mids and i like my es7 more.   So...

    ES7 and ESW9 ear pads, interchangeable?

    Hi guys! Quick question, are the ES7 and ESW9 ear pads interchangeable? I think that they are, but I just wanted to be sure. Can anyone who owns BOTH confirm this please? Thanks a lot.

    Beats or Skullcandy

    Yeah I want to buy some cool looking headphones. I'm looking for something with a 40mm driver. I can't figure out how big the drivers are on the Beats Solo if someone could help me with it.   Basically I'm going to tear into these puppys and remove the crap driver in them to just have a bad...

    Audio Technica ATH-ES7

    Hello,   I have some questions about the ATH-ES7. How good are these phones? Are they any "fun"? I know they aren't meant to be a desktop type of headphone but I have read some comparisons against the ATH-M50(which I currently own) and they seem to be fitting the portable choice. Anyway...

    Good headphones for techno,EDM,trans, just anykind of electro

    Hey, my friends wants a headphone for electro music. I suggested the ATH-ES7 but he didn't like the looks of it. Any other cheap headphones around $100? (with good looks of course)

    Do ES7 sound more natural than W55?

    Someone knows the truth?   Have W55 but although they sound nice, I am sometimes bored by not strong mids and strong bass.   Would ES7 fix that?    Are they more natural and strong in mids and highs as in the bass but natural sounding?   Regards

    Apple Earpods specification

    Hi guys, I'm now exploring the sound frequency and I think it's pretty important to understand the frequency range of the headphones/earphones. I have started with my own headsets like creative EP-630, Audio Technica ATH-ES7. However, I couldn't find the specs for new Apple earpods (iphone 5)...

    Second headphone

    Hello head-fi,   My first headphone is an AKG Q460, which to be honest is pretty good choice for a first headphone.  Now I would like to buy a better one and my requirements are the following: I'd use it mostly at home and during travelling so it shouldn't be super portable. Music: techno...

    Bassiest headphones ever, which?

    This might sound very shallow, but I really like bass, so I started wondering: what are the bassiest headphones there is? Also, which ones are bassiest ones that desn't require a headphone amp (to be run off the D2 in any case). Oh, and headphones, not IEms or plugs ^^

    Pictures of headphones being worn?

    Hey there Head-Fi, I finally got brave enough to post for once instead of lurking as usual. I've been doing quite a lot of reading here trying to scope out several different headphones for various uses. However, I'm not gonna lie: Looks are important to me. Seeing headphones by themselves is a...

    Is this site legit? E4c's for 70 bucks...

    Shure - Mobile-Blue Store This site is in Hong Kong, but I figure I would rather pay 70 bucks for E4c and whatever airmail they offer, than 200 bucks. The prices they have on these IEMs are ridiculous.

    New Ultrasone zino impressions (with some pics)

    I got new Ultrasone zino that is apparently a successor to iCans.     Comparing zino to iCans, zino looks better than the toy-ish look of the iCans. (lower: iCans) Zino sounded better than burned-in iCans without any burn-in. zino is more clear, more crisp and richer. The bass is...

    The other day, the I finally got round to recabling my ATH-ES7's.  The reason for this, the cable was getting too short, after being breaking a about 20cm away from the plug.  There was nothing fancy used in this, as it is a temporary measure (although will be keeping the headphones still, I am...

    The cap that secures the wire to the can is cracked and the wire is loose, it can be pushed into the can a fair amount. If I manipulate the wire with my fingers squeezing and pushing it up a bit into the can I can get audio. I'm wondering if this is an issue that can be fixed and if so does it...
