    Thoughts on the KRK KNS 8400?

    Hiya, new member here! Just curious on everyone's thoughts on this pair of cans before buying them, particularly on the reliability side of things. I've previously owned the Shure SRH940 and been burned on the reliability of the headband (broke after ~2-3 months of usage) and the AKG K845 BT...

    Best headphones under $100 for gaming/music/movie

I want to enjoy game's soundtracks and I mostly listen to hard rock/heavy metal musics mostly at home so i don't need portability and I'm ok with open/semi open options. I don't have any Amp/Dac...

    Headphones sensitivity, impedance, required V/I/P, amplifier gain

    The following table is based on measurements, not manufacturer specs.   Target SPL is 110 dB SPL. The source is assumed to output 2 V. The amp is assumed to be a voltage source (0 ohm output impedance). Voltage, current, power are RMS figures.   What do the columns mean? S@1V is the...

    I took the first step. Please help me finish.

    This should be called "Newbie's first impressions" but I need help more than need someone to read my impressions.   After so much research, I finally found at least two places to freely listen to display headphones (I'm in South Korea).  I didn't have my notes with me but I knew the models...

    Just can't decide on headphones/cards; suggestions appreciated.

    Okay, so far I have come across the idea that I'm pretty much screwed since I do not live anywhere near an audio store (with the nearest Best Buy being 2.5 hours away), so I have to rely on reviews, forums, and suggestions to decide which headphone/set and sound card would be best for me. Let me...

    Undecided and a Bit Overwhelmed

    Hi all, I'm looking into getting my first pair of decent over the ear headphones.  I currently use a pair of Klipsch Image S4s for listening on the go, which sound decent to me.  Since I'm a gamer, while at home I use a pair of Steelseries Siberia V2s, which while being extremely comfortable, I...

    ATH M-50 vs. Onkyo ES FC-300 vs KRK KNS 8400

    Hey all! I'm narrowing my choices for my next set of cans to replace the old garbage I'm using now, and I'd really like the input! The first contender is the ever-popular ATH M50. I know they're the go-to set for most people who are just getting into the game or looking for a nice pair they...

    Looking For Some New Cans

    I'm trying to find some new audiophile cans. I don't have a lot of requirements, but the ones I do have will be deal breakers. I'm looking for over-the ear, preferably closed back. Comfortable is helpful considering I'm always listening to music at class and at home. (Well and in the car but...

    Headphones for about $150

    Hi, mi starting to produce electro house/dubstep, and I need a new pair of headphones. I can spend up to $150, and I need them to be neutral (flat). I'm going to use them on a studio, so I dont care if they leak sound or dont block outside noise. What headphones do you recommend me? I think they...

    Please help me choose a headphone.

    I've ultimately had no help from the recommendations thread, so, I'm turning to both Supremeus members and the general forums. Copy-paste of my post  I listen to a lot of EDM and other misc electronic genres, such as breakcore, speedcore, noise, and happy hardcore. Sometimes some rock...

    Best Headphones for SCIENCE

    I'm in an auditory perception lab at MIT, and we're looking for the most "objectively flat" headphones for doing experiments: that is, the headphones that by objective measurements have the flattest frequency response as measured at the eardrum. We also want to minimize any colorations like...

    Portable Headphones Questions

    What would you say is the most comfortable, best sounding portable headphones for 150 dollars or less? 200? Would prefer over ear.  I have been looking at a lot of headphones around that price range but many do not get good reviews for comfort.    1. Ultrasone Hfi 580, 780 and pro 550  2...

    HFI-780 or KNS8400

    I've been doing obsessive research on what headphones might be right for me, for I travel quite a bit. Both of these headphones fit most of my criteria so I was wondering what one you would suggest (feel free to suggest others too). I listen to pretty much everything that is between classical to...
