    Finding Distortion Source

    I recently woke up one day and I could swear I noticed distortion that was not previously there on some of my tracks, everything is lossless but I know that does not absolve the recording or the track of guilt when it comes to distortion, its just it seems that there is more on songs I did not...

    Which would suit me.

    Hello Head-Fi!   I'm very new, I started following this forum around a week ago in hope of learning about headphones until the day comes when I will buy one myself. Nevertheless, the day of choosing a headphone has come and I need your advice.   I can begin with introducing my musical...

    Upgrading from.. *gulp* DT880's

    I'm afraid to ask. How much more money will I lose if I want a better DT880? By that, I mean.. I want a more engaging sound. I found out that I love midrange (after listening to Paradigm speakers) and I'm not a basshead afterall (learned after hearing the SRH840's, ick, way too much bass). I...

    Just picked up a pair of the "mysterious" Beyerdynamic DT811

    Well, actually I bought two pairs of them from a guy who was clearing his inventory... :) I got a bit curious since there doesn't appear to be much info to be found on these. Makes me think they must be relatively rare because there are none to be found on ebay either.   They are supposedly...

    What Over Ear To Get?

    Hi All,   First Post. I am a long time audio nut.  I have had the likes of Levinson, Classe, JM Lab and etc... for my 2 channel needs.  A few years ago, I settled in on my Revel Salon, Jeff Rowland, Transparent set-up and love it.  In that time, I found that having a wide/deep/accurate sound...

    Full sized headphones á la HD25?

    Hi guys,   So yeah, it's almost the new year. And with the new year comes a new job, and with a new job comes money to be spent on headphones!   Essentially what I'm looking for are a pair of full sized headphones for home use, so open or closed back is fine. In terms of sound signature...

    The wait for new headphones!

    I got a pair of Sennheiser HD 239s for Christmas and they were shorted out of the box! I placed an order for some AudioTech M50s in white and they shipped out Saturday at around 11 pm. They arrived in Ohio (2 states from me) over 12 hours ago. I think I should be receiving them tomorrow even...

    How to guide to replacing Beyerdynamic headphone adjusters plus massive Kudos to Beyerdynamics customer service

    I use my DT 880's a lot. Like in 3 years I've gone through 3 sets of the lush velour earpads. Enough that I wore out the headphone adjustment clickers. I tried to find replacement parts on their site but did not see that part listed, so I wrote an email to Beyerdynamic North America.   Mike...

    After searching still need some input

    A little back ground. I have the Senn HD650 and the Beyer DT880. Like the sound of the Beyer's more. They just sound a lot more clear.. However they lack low end for me. In any case both just didn't hit the mark for me. As it would stand I would look to get the T1 but the price is out of reach...

    Hi,   I’m seeking some help and advice in choosing an upgrade to my Sennheiser 598’s. One problem I have is that there are hardly any specialist retailers near where I live ( Cornwall, UK ) so I’m mostly ‘flying blind’.   I am interested in a home setup ( I mostly listen to audio books on my...

    Two Q's; 'loudness' + 'headphone comfort'

    Hi there,   had two questions for you guys.   1) I just bought Sennheiser HD598s (my 5th or 6th pair of headphones, I only keep one at a time though). I have a Cowon Z2. I have to have these at 45 (for loud music) or 50 (for quiet music) and it's actually still pretty quiet. Not quiet...

    LCD-3 (and other high end flagships) with Older Recordings/Lo-Fi Recordings

        I wanted to get some opinions on listening to lo-fi recordings, as well as recordings from the 60s and 70s, on headphones of this caliber. The general consensus of the LCD-3s seem to be: transparent, great bass response and impact, elite midrange, good (but not elite) soundstage. This type...

    Audiophile wanna-be looking for best over ear headphone for trip hop

    Hi, I'm looking to buy a new set of headphones, with possible a DAC and amp if needed.  The problem is, I can't really try out too many types at local stores due to limited selection where I am.  The main place I'll be using them is off of my pc, which has a Xonar DG in it, and I also have...
