    Headphones sensitivity, impedance, required V/I/P, amplifier gain

    The following table is based on measurements, not manufacturer specs.   Target SPL is 110 dB SPL. The source is assumed to output 2 V. The amp is assumed to be a voltage source (0 ohm output impedance). Voltage, current, power are RMS figures.   What do the columns mean? S@1V is the...

    What' a far price for the Denon AH-D2000?

    Since they've been discontinued, what's a fair price for the Denon AH-D2000 in the current market?  What are some reasonable price ranges for new and for used?   Going headphone hunting on Friday and there's a shop nearby that might have them new for $350 USD.  Thanks.

    Sub 150 dollar headphones.

    I recently had a thread like this... but it crashed and died, so im trying to make a new one to actually get some opinions. I honestly listen to Rock, Pop, Hip Hop, Dub Step, and Rap.  I like a prominent base and an overall clear sound.   Now all i usually hear is that the ATH-M50 is the...

    "Down-grading" to in-ear

    I've been using a pair of Beyerdynamic DT770 - 32ohm for the past few years.  They are the first pair of higher quality headphones I have owned and I've been extremely satisfied. However, I know I would do more listening with a pair of in-ears so I'm looking to "down-grade." I've done some...

    PERCEIVED Flat Headphones?

    Hey all!   Still pretty new here... I have a question regarding an issue that I'm surprised no one has discussed (or at least that my 'advanced search' skills were unable to find).   The issue I'm talking about is the perceived curve vs the actual curve of headphones in comparison to...

    $200 +/- headphones recommendations

    I'm a pretty average listener, using primarily my iPhone and laptop for my source most of the time, and sans amp. I've long been using my Grado 80s for home and my Sony MDR-7506 for walk-around cans when I'm not in the mood for IEMs. I'm waiting to jump up to a $200 pair and am looking at the...

    Which Beyerdynamic DT-770?

    I am after a closed can with sound signature as close to HD650 or Fidelio X1 as possible, under $300.   After months of looking the only thing I can come up with is Beyerdynamic, which is quite bright, I think I can stand it as I have owned the DT-990 250Ohm before and after burn in (not sure...

    Freak accident involving BD DT-770 and a vacuum cleaner o.O

    So as it happens, I'm pretty dumb. Washed my earpads. Taped away the crud from the driver covers. Thought it a grand idea to very carefully vacuum them off. Went around the sides on lowest setting. Was thinking: "Don't go over the middle where the driver is!" Went over the middle and heard a...

    Suggestions for a $200 over the ear headphone, mostly for EDM/Dubstep

    Hello everyone. I've been looking for a new pair of headphones since my IEMs recently bit the dust. The only experience I have with headphones is the Pioneer MJ51, which had terrible build quality - one the speakers actually broke off the headband :mad:. So I had to turn to some IEMs that came...

    DT770 80ohm vs 32ohm

    Can anyone directly compare the bass in the 80 vs the 32 edition of these phones? Mainly without an amp. I tried the 80 and the bass just wasn't there for me. Mind you the 80's had velour pads and most 32's have pleather.
