    I guess my posting is limited as a total noob on here, so I'll start here (btw, what's the policy on that, one must post X amount, mod approved, then they can start threads?)   Sorry, bit confused, and yeah, I'm sure it's explained somewhere but was hoping someone could give me the quick and...

    X5 / E12 / O2 Combo for DT770 80-ohm?

    I have a Fiio X5 with Beyer DT770 (80 ohm). Two Questions:   (1) FOR PORTABLE: Is adding an E12 amp total overkill for 80 ohm cans? Or how noticeable will the benefits be?   (2) FOR DESKTOP: If I'm currently using the X5 as an external DAC for my desktop, how would the O2/ODAC combo from...

    Fiio e12 or other for Senn HD650?

    Hey guys! I'm eventually going to buy a Bottlehead Crack for these phones, but I also want something portable that will hold me over until I have the funds. I will likely end up with either a Modi or E17k DAC, so amp only. I'm just looking for a good sounding, under $200 amp that will drive...

    Do I need a better amp for Hd650?

    I have a last generation if e7 portable amplifier that i use with my hd650. With the e7, the headphones easily play very loud without seeming to tax the amp, but i wonder from more experienced audiophiles if a better amp will make a discernible difference. I listen to 320kbps mostly with some...

    FiiO E12 v1 vs Cayin C5 brief comparison

    I've had just a couple days comparing these two but I think I've heard enough to make my decision. Source is FiiO X3 LO (wma lossless files) and headphones are Senn HD600.   I have had the Cayin for a few weeks and the whole reason I even considered the E12 is that for most recordings the C5...

    More bass and power of e12

    Am looking for rec's of portable amps with max outs of around 800mW @32  and bass boost   sub $200.   These are part of basshead kits so under 200 is a must. Any suggests would be appreciated

    Calculate Power required to drive

    I know this is embarrassing to ask and though my graduation major is in computer science and asymmetric algorithms, I should not be forgetting basic physics, but here it is:   How can we get the power required to drive the phones to a standard "loud" level, like 105 Db, given the sensitivity...

    New full-sized headphone to get the best out of my Fiio X1 ( and Fiio E12 )

    Hi, I currently using a SHR840 right now. I like the cans a lot, but I want to spend more for another headphone. My max budget is like 500 to 650 dollar. As the title said; I like to get the best out of my Fiio x1 player, and E12 amp.    I hope you can really help me out with this.   (it's a...

    DAC or portable amp for Etymotic ER-4S?

    Which DACs and portable headphone amps provide the strongest signal and clearest and cleanest sound for the Etymotic ER-4S? Would be nice for it to be compatible with iOS, Android, Windows8, and latest OS. :)

    Looking for Sub-$200 IEM with a Few Requirements

    Hi all,   I recently purchased Klipsch X10's. They were okay, but not very analytical and a bit bass heavy, so I am returning them. With that being said, I am looking for IEM's and have a few requiements:   1. $200 and under 2. Very analytical. I loved listening to music and finding new...

    Would appreciate some suggestions for 300-400 budget, over the ears cans, that are to take out in the world! (clamp/leakage)

    Just bought the Sony XB500.. need some advice.

    First of all, I have the JVC HA-S500s and I've been burning them in overnight:     They sound fantastic. A lot of the music I listen to sounds great with these headphones.   However, I also listen to a lot of electronic, rap, glitch, acid jazz and drumstep, and this is where I find...

    Possible simple bass mod (especially with AT ADxxxx series)

    When I was playing around with my Somic MH463, I noticed that in the pics posted by Boris there were vents around the driver on the side facing the ear: (above and below the driver)   If such vents were not present, the driver should make an airtight seal with the ear (to the extent...

    an upgrade from sony xb500? (180$ budget)

    Hey guys i just joined head fi and was wondering what a suitable upgrade would be for my xb500's.   I love the bass in them but the treble is really lacking, and i was thinking the ultrasone hfi 580's would be a good enough upgrade as people say they have really 'full' bass and the treble...
