    SE535 for Classical?

    I need an IEM for classical music (large symphonic works), and I wanted to know how the 535s would work in this situation? These will be for on the go listening with my A&K Kann, which is loaded with 24/192 FLAC and DSD files. I'm not interested in the ER4s, because as a low brass player, I like...

    Sub $400 headphones+amp recommendations (Mainly classical music)

    My first headphone purchase was a couple years ago, with the Beyerdynamic DT 770 32 ohm. I've enjoyed it a lot, but I'm looking to get something open-back now (I've read they're even better for sound reproduction). I'm not entirely sure how to describe the sound of my DT 770s, but they're miles...

    Looking for IEMs ~£300 for classical/folk music

    I am looking to buy a new set of IEMs. Budget - at most £300, but fairly flexible here. Happy to spend less! Source/Amp - various laptops and iPhone XS. No amp and I would prefer keeping it that way. How the gear will be used - mainly office, so passive noise isolation is quite appreciated...

    Closed Back headphone for Digital Piano for under $500?

    What would be the best closed back for a digital piano(Kawai ES 4) for under $500? I've searched everywhere but I couldn't really find any clear consensus. I've found the DT 1770 and Shure 1840 to be worthy of consideration. I heard the Focal Elegia should be considered if I can stretch my...

    Classical Music Headphone Shootout II: Mid-Fi

    Last year I did a shootout of bang-for-the-buck headphones using classical music (which is the vast majority of what I listen to). Since then I've acquired a number of mid-level headphones that are generally well regarded for classical, so I thought I would update the shootout with these new...

    Earphone/Earbud/IEM Recommendations for Classical?

    Hey guys, newbie here. I've been a lurker for about a week now and it seems that the best earbuds for under $150 are the 1More Triple Drivers, however I've also read people saying that while they're insane value for money, it's been designed for more bassy, punchy music rather than classical...

    IEMs for Jazz, Classical, Acoustic...

    Finally got some IEMs and am finally starting to get what all the fuss is about. What IEMs would go best with natural, acoustic, music? For kicks, let's keep it under $200. Closer to $100 would be good. Perhaps an IEM/Amp combo? I like Jazz (Bill Evans, Chet Baker, Miles Davis). I listen from...
