    Recommendations for headphones upgrade

    I’m addicted to headphones and amp/dac setups.I had the “hd 58x” for about year and half and I like them in gaming, but in music listening it doesn’t give me that high detailed sound or separation between the instruments that I prefer. I decided to keep them for gaming and look for another pair...

    Opinions: Best headphone under 1000$

    On the market for a headphone under $1000, done a lot of research but curious what some of you guys/gals would recommend. For added info I currently have modded M1060C's (open) as my primary headphone and love the extension into the bass/sub-bass bass, but would like a pair of cans with more...

    Amp/Dac combo for Monolith M1060

    I'm looking to run the M1060 off an external amp. Currently it's being fed by the onboard audio of a Clevo P775DM3 laptop. It does have an amp, but it sounds very mediocre(my LG V30 drives other headphones better). I'd like something with a relatively small form factor. It will be always plugged...

    Monoprice M1060 Amp Pairing

    Hello All, I recently purchased a Monoprice M1060, and am curious about amp pairings. My current desktop set-up is a Fiio e10k as a DAC into a Massdrop O2 (I picked up both used, and relatively cheap). I'm wondering if there would be any noticeable benefits to getting a more powerful amp with...

    Do M1060s sound decent on a tube amp (Little Dot MkII) compared to solid state?

    I'm looking into getting M1060s as my first true hifi experience and I was wondering if they would be significantly hindered by using on a tube amp (Little Dot MkII) and if so, how exactly the sound would change. I've heard planars don't work best on tube, but I found a good combo deal and would...

    M1060 Modifications with Measurements

    So I did a video recently showing how to mod M1060 with Fuzzor and Vegan pads also providing measurements to show this improvement over stock. I had a lot of people telling me to take the foam disks out of the back though so I decided to do some experiments and take measurements along the way...

    iSine 10 as good as M1060?

    So I just watched a review saying the iSine10 sounded as good as the Monolith M1060 and would be more flexible since you don`t have to wear only at home. I found some contradictions regarding sound leakage also, some saying is not a big deal unless you blast sound trought them which you...

    Stax l-300 vs Monoprice m1060

    Hi, help me to choose! I know, they are really different, but I am switching from an HE-400i and can't decide. Both are about the same price (with amp and dac). I'd like to go with the L-300, but I fear it doesn't have enough bass (at least 400i quantity). As for the M1060, after listening to...
