    Closed over-ear headphones Ultrasone Edition 9, Signature Pro and Signature Master - the vintage experts

    It was in 2008 when, after the good test of the Ultrasone Edition 9 in Stereoplay, I received a pair from my trusted dealer together with the headphone amplifier C.E.C. HD53 to test at home. Although I already had a rather warm and sonorous playing CD player with the Trigon Recall I at that...

    RS2e Driver 'Quick Fix'?

    Hi, Head-Fi! First time poster, here. I recently picked up a pair of used RS2e's for a really good price, with the caveat that the left driver is a bit messed up. It really can only reproduce the very upper end of the mids and treble. The lower spectrum is completely absent. I've determined...

    Any worthy competitors to Grado SR80x in that price range?

    Any worthy competitors to Grado SR80x in that price range? I have the SR60i now and also would like to know if the SR80x is worth upgrading to, or if they'll sound quite similar in terms of raw SQ. The source would be a laptop headphone jack - not sure if a DAC/amp is worth it for something this...

    GRADO sr325e + integrated amp: DAC or not?

    Hello, I'm finally the owner of a pair of GRADO sr325e, which I use to drive with my PC, connected to an old Harman/Kardon HK6300. I'm generally happy with the sound, but I'm wondering whether I should buy an external DAC (like a Schiit Modi or iFi ZEN) to gain more detail. I'm not quite sure...
