    History of orthodynamic (planar-magnetic) headphones

    Some time ago when I was reviewing the Dekoni Audio Blue, I wondered about the history of orthodynamic headphones. To my surprise, I had a hard time finding it in one place. I had to research for weeks to extract little bits of information. Unfortunately, the history of planars isn't that...

    DAC/AMP Recommendations for HifiMan Edition XS?

    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.

    Darkest planar magnetic headphones?

    Hey everyone! I'm looking for the darkest planar headphones. Today I use Campfire Cascade which has huge bass and great details at the same time. But Cascade has a very annoying tube effect.
