    How's this plan look?

    Starting from near naught (budget boy AKG k240 and Fiio e10k), so I'm looking forward to implementing what I've learned in the past couple months into purchases and gold sounds for my ears, via headphone listening...

    I bought a pair of AKG K240 like 2 years ago and I'm not satisfied with the sound, I regret investing in the whole open back thing. I always used cheap closed back headphones so I thought open back weren't going to be such a problem for me, but I was wrong. I can't focus on the music and every...

    Looking for recommendations - USB DAC/Amp under $250

    I just bought a set of 58Xs here on Head-Fi and I want to get a DAC/Amp to hook to my laptop. Things that I want: - USB input - Dial/wheel for volume control -- not buttons. - Ability to boost the bass (not a deal breaker). - On the smaller side because my desk is small (max width around 7"-...
