    Koss DJ100 - Bass Disappointment

      Don't get me wrong. Vocals sound great on these things, and I've found them surprisingly comfortable. However, the bass feels weak. I looked into it, and read that people had recommended an amp to drive them. If I get an amp, it's probably going to be portable, something like the FiiO E5...

    Do I really need an amp for my RE0?

    Hi Head-Fi,   I am going to buy a pair of RE0s as my first step into hi-fi sound, upgrading from the likes of EP630/C300, ATH-CKM50 and my current M9s. The ones I've used have all been rather cheap, all did not require or have any recommendations for amping.    I decided on the RE0s...

    ATH M50s flatter bass after burn in? Can the "subs" bust?

    Hi guys     When I first got the M50s, the bass was, full and accurate with a rich depth. Now it is flat, less forward with less rumble. The highs appear slightly harsher. I used them for dubstep at full volume with a Fiio E5. Are the cans bust? The sound seems night and day..Any ideas?
