    High-End Headphones That Bring out the percussion in music.

    Hey guys, I've purchased a W3000ANV, and I'm going to be getting my other "dream" pair of headphones. I play the violin, cello, and percussion. So here's how I would like it to be: 1. A tight, punchy bass response; not too little, not too much 2. Thick, warm mids with a "fun" sound to them...

    OFFICIAL Headphone Aesthetics Thread - The gorgeous and the hideously ugly!

    Whether we like it or not, the aesthetics of our headphones can sometimes be a critical part in our choice in headphones. The extreme popularity of Beats headphones can at least in part be attributed to their particular looks. Since what you wear speaks a lot about you, the looks of your...

    Which High-end Cans Have the Crappiest stock cables?

    Just got a new HD700 and I wanna get some new custom cables.  Is the cable used with the HD700 crappy or is it of decent quality?  The cable on the ATH W3000 and HD800 are pretty nice and so I thought maybe Audeze is only one of the few that provides crappy cables  What are the high-end cans...

    Audiotechnica ATH-w3000 Aniversary or the w5000? Availability?

    I'm trying out closed cans now after a long time enjoying my trusty hd800's.  I've heard the m50Xs at my local store and I like the audiotechnica house sound.  I've come across two that I really want to buy, the w3000 anv and the w5000.  So my question is what are the differences (if any)...

    Hardest downsizing decisions you've made

    Three years ago I chose between my HD 650 and Grado HF-2 and that was pretty difficult. I regretted selling the HD 650s, but it had to be done. Today I sit here listening to my D7000s and W3000ANVs and ponder sadly that one of them might have to go. What is the hardest decision you've had to...

    Top-of-the-line headphones vs (C)IEMs

    Hi fellow head-fiers, Since I remember myself in this hobby (which goes back almost 2 decades) I always listened through 'standard' headphones (dynamic/planar/electrostatic/closed-back/open-back etc.). Recently I've noticed the IEMs market is growing (obviously due to the availability of...

    Cheaper headphones that do what high-end headphones don't

    Hi everyone. I've had a variety of fairly high-end headphones, including the Beyerdynamic T1, AT W3000ANV, Alessandro MS-Pro, HifiMan HE500, AKG K701 and Unique Melody Miracle. All of them have good points. Some have great detail, others great energy and dynamic response, others in theory a very...

    Which headphones look the most expensive to you (Regardless of price)?

    We've all been there: "Those were $500? They look like they were 50 dollars". Some headphones perform really well and are some serious cash, but they just don't look the part.   In your opinion, which headphones look the most expensive/impressive with no mention of the price. (They can even be...

    Need advice to choose between the beyerdynamic T1 and audio technica w3000anv

    Can a horizontal slider rating be done to assess the sound of these in different aspects. Is the treble on the T1 not a problem, as long as the source is good enough? which of these is scalable, and responds to upgrades in source components? Is the w3000anv's detail retrieval good, though behind...

    T1 VS W3000 ANV

    Pre-amble   The Tesla T1 and ATH W3000ANV arguably represent the flagship headphones for Beyerdynamic and Audio Technica respectively.  They have both retailed around $1500 and had street prices as low as $1000.  Although the beyer is open (semi open for the nit-pickers) and relatively...
