    Headphones Needed To Fit System

    Hi people. I'm using a Pure I-20 dock and iPod 160GB to feed a Schiit Bifrost DAC and Asgard amp. My headphones are the Grado SR325is. It sounds pretty amazing but never happy I've decided to upgrade my headphones. My budget is £700. What do you guys suggest?

    Here's some background on me/Story time!:    It was during the summer of my senior year of high school when I decide I needed a new pair of headphones for college since I'm a big boy now.  I browsed the web looking for headphones and at first I was going to buy an Ath-ES7 black.  It had...

    looking to replace my B&W P5. suggestions?

    Hello. I've been lurking these forums for quite a few months now and have learned quite a bit from you all. I have to say that the community here is great, respectful, and very knowledgeable.

    Looking for IEM's, don't like cans. Spending max $1k.

    Hi everyone,   I'm searching for some IEM's. I currently have Grado SR 325is's. This is going to sound strange, but I have oily skin and wearing the cans kind of gross's me out. I shower twice a day, so that's not the issue.    I listen to primarily EDM music, trance, electronic, techno. I...

    How many hours a week (on avg) do you listen to your full-size headphones?

    I generally listen far more to my IEM's during any given day (music or Audiobooks) than I do to my full-size headphones at my office or at home. I bet I probably listen to IEM's at least 5-6 hours a day and some days maybe even more...sometimes I wear them to bed, listening to music as I fall...

    On Buying A Headphone More Than One Time

    I'm just curious to hear if any of you guys have bought a headphone more than once, after selling the original purchase. I'm also curious about what caused the re-buy.   For me, I really wanted to like the HifiMAN 400. Bought it, was disappointed, sold it, then a few months later, figured I...

    Audio Nirvana Moments

    Partially inspired by the Non-audiophile reactions to audiophile headphones thread.  Basically, I thought it would be cool if we could all share moments of audio nirvana that we have: after all, that is ultimately what we chase, those "awesome" moments!   I'll share two to start off. The...

    Sennheiser HD600 + Grado SR325is = ?

    I have recently acquired both a Sennheiser HD600 and a Grado SR325is.  For the time being, I am likely going to have to figure out which one I want to keep and sell the other, which is going to be a challenge.  I listen to about 90% rock/metal, although most of it is not "hardcore," for lack of...
