    Sound leakage in Monolith M565C

    Hi, so I got a new M565C from Amazon. My friend was sitting next to me and told me he could hear the music I am listening to. Does this mean I got faulty headphones? They are closed-back so this means that they should not leak sound. Should I return them? Do all M565C suffer from this? I could...

    Your thoughts on the Monoprice/Monolith M1060 Headphones?

    There are definitely mixed opinions about this set of headphones, but what do you think about them? Are they good in terms of build quality, sound quality, and comfort? I am looking into these headphones because they are "cheap" planar magnetics.

    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...

    Monoprice Retro

    Hi :) I want to know if those headphones will work good in PC/phone without an amp (with decent volume) because they seem to be perfect for what I want but the low sensitivity worries me, that's all. Also, what is the difference between Monoprice Retro / Superlux HD681 / Presonus HD7 in terms...

    Noise Cancelling Recommendations

    Hey all, I'm a long time lurker here, always found great advice over years but found myself with a more specific question I wasn't finding much on so here it goes! I'm looking to get some noise cancelling headphones. It's not in the budget this time around to get the Sony 1000XM3 I've had my eye...

    Thought I was losing my hearing...

    I feel so dumb. I bought 3 XL Brainwavz Earpads, one Sheepskin, one Dark Red Pleather and used them both for a week until my newest a Velour Earpad. The headphones I own are an Open-Back Audio Technica Ath-Ad700x, and a Closed-Back Monoprice Retro Over-Ear Headphone. Today I received my newly...

    Monoprice m560 headphone owners thread.

    Having had it brought to my attention that Monoprice is clearing out the m560's for $119 open box (free shipping, no tax), I decided that for under $200 cans, this is the game changer. Let alone being planar and on the $100 side of the category...

    Monoprice Stage Right Rookie Review

    I had these for about 3 weeks. I sent them back. I tried them with the brainwaves sheepskin XL and with the brainwaves hybrid synthetic pad. The image is the XL's with the stock pads next to them. The stock pads where just small for my ears but otherwise great. The XL didn't fit the can's...

    [SOLVED] DAC Not working for just one pair of headphones

    Hey everyone I just got a Monoprice DAC/AMP 11567 and I'm playing it through my Lenovo Laptop. I'm streaming music in high quality from Spotify (320kbps) and outputting it at the highest quality (24-bit, 96000 Hz). For some reason when I plug in headphones (Logitech UE6000's) the singing / mids...

    Monoprice Monolith RCA Cables

    Haven't seen any specific thread for the new Monoprice Monolith RCA Cables, so here we go. I noticed these cables being offered by Monoprice a few weeks ago as their initial entry into the "ultra-premium" arena of RCA cables. Usually these kinds of cables are exorbitantly priced, but Monoprice...

    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...

    Prefer them on Amazon. I'm looking and torn. I don't want to spend alot, I mean, they're earbuds, I plan to use them with a Handheld system, maybe a MP3 player while I'm on the go, I do not need super high fi 100$ ear-buds. I got expensive audio equipment at home for that.   I was looking at...

    Are amazon's Monoprice 108323 the same that Monoprice 8323?

    Well, might sound like a very dumb question but I'm thinking of getting them because of the price and the great reviews and I've been cheated tons of times with fake articles...  Also, for someone who lives out of the States, how does amazon's free shipping service work? Is it free all around...

They are a bit expensive for me to pull the trigger blindly but I figured someone must have taken the plunge. I haven't been able to...
