    Philips Fidelio X1 VS Creative Aurvana Live. Looking for the ultimate at home all rounder value!

    I've had a few headphones, mostly driven by my UDAC 2, but have also played around with various Chinese amps, from the top of my head: AKG 700 - Great soundstage, but too lacking in bass. Denon D2000 - Overall great, but a bit cumbersome and not the best value for money. Sennheiser HD600 -...

    Creative Aurvana Live! vs Sennheiser Amperior

    Narrowed my choices down to these two. I listen to everything, but I lean towards rap/hiphop and edm. I'm looking for accurate sound, punchy, exciting bass, and wonderful highs and mids. Comfort is important. Which one should I get?

    I lost my M50s...

    So I was in the process of moving basically halfway across the U.S., and I lost my all-time favorite headphones, the Audio-Technica ATH-M50 (Looked through all the boxes, those headphones are goners). As it is not currently in my budget to just buy another pair, are there any headphones with 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...

    JVC S500, disapointed with all the Hype.

    Paid 70 usd with taxes and shipping fee (50 usd product + 14 usd shipping + taxes). I really don't think this is worth 70 usd. I would pay something like 30 USD plus shipping on them (compared to my other headphones).   My other headphones: Sennheiser HD-25 Creative Aurvana Live KSC-75...

    Sony MDR ZX-700 vs Creative Aurvana Live!

    Which one has the best detail, clarity, instrument separation and soundstage for rap/hiphop music and vocals only? Also, which one sounds more neutral?

    How is the bass of the Creative Aurvana Live! in your opinion?

    Is it more on the loose side or is it kind of tight?

    Will the Xonar U3 take away the sibilance issues with the AKG K540?

    So the sibilance and over exaggerated highs on the K540 is a big problem for me. Will the Xonar U3 get rid of those problems?

    Wanted Creative Aurvana Live! and Sony MDR-V6 or MDR-7506

    Hi guys....   I am from Portugal and i would really love to buy 2 of these 3 headphones for a good price (40 euros a piece tops).   Of course they have to be in very good conditions, preferably they must still be within warranty time and must have purchase certificates. In case of the...

    the other 19800hz. bass isnt everything

    We've all seen it. For some reason the uninitiated seem to think loud bass is the only thing that makes a good headphone. Even the bassheads among us will admit that bass volume isn't everything; texture, impact, clarity, seperation, coherence, and PRaT all matter greatly, often more so than...

    Quality headphones under $80

    What I'm looking for: - costs less than $100 - Decently stylish, but not necessarily glamorous (used both in public and in privacy of home/room, so willing to sacrifice some sound quality to get decent style) - Great overall sound, with emphasis on bass (non-muddy) - Decent sound leakage...

    Looking for £60 headphones

    The usual: I've got about £60 to spend and I'm looking for headphones, I would like something with a decent design (I'm a sucker for shiny plastic and LED's), decent comfort but foremost good sound quality (for the price ofc). I'm not an audiophile and good bass is usually enough to make me...

    The Very Best Headphones at $100???

    I'm in the category of listeners who are 'treble sensitive.' I love my details, hanker for them really, but simply can't listen for extended periods to any 'phones with a treble boost. I'm wondering what headphones offer the best compromise, ie offer clarity and detail while allowing for...
