    Deciding between HD6xx, HD58x or any other?

    I currently have the DT 990 pro which I'm very happy with (sound-wise), however, the issue I'm having is the earpads. When I first got them, my ears slightly touched the inside, but I thought it would go away when I wore them in, but they didn't, it has only gotten worse. I looked at some bigger...

    Malaysian buyers of the Massdrop x Sennheiser HD6XX, what's the bes route?

    I'm from Malaysia, and am intending to upgrade my audio gear to at least a "budget audiophile" setup. I'm a basic user at this point just listening PC>ATH M40X. I have not much complaints for my PC's sound card and the way it delivers it (Acer Nitro 5), though it may just be untrained ears...

    Looking for a DT 177X GO vs HD 598 comparrison

    I currently own the HD 598's and I have for a few years now, but I want something more expensive that's closed due to household background noise. Since I'm going closed I'm willing to pay the price for the 177X in hopes that the soundstage is even wider than the 598 or dt 770's. I've been mostly...

    Have Chord Mojo paired w/ Fostex TH-X00 @ home. Keep or change to Massdrop Liquid Carbon X or something else?

    So I currently have a Chord Mojo driving the Fostex TH-X00. One thing I notice that that while it drives it nicely, compared to my previous Xduoo xd-05 DAC, I feel the Mojo lacks a bit on the thumping bass end. So the question is this. Should I change to this Liquid Carbon X SDAC and sell my...
