    Looking for a new amp? sound? dac?

    I've been long debating the "upgrade" to a Schiit Valhalla 2 for my Senn HD 650's.. But I'm just not sure it's worth the money currently. I have no issue with the price tag of the Vallhalla 2, I'm just not sure I'm gaining much.. Current setup is Schiit Modi Uber 2 from my PC, and into my...

    How and why should I spend more than $200 on reference headphones?

    I like my sound balanced, neutral, and detailed. I'm not an audio professional, just a listener, but that's what pleases me. At home I listen with a pair of Genelec 8050 monitor speakers and adore them. Now I need closed headphones for office use, and am looking at options. It seems AKG K371 is...

    Headphone Recommendations under $600

    Hello. I want to get a pair of headphones for around $600, but couldn't find a recommendations list anywhere. I am looking for a closed-back pair of full size headphones.

    Hey all, I've been searching for new headphones to replace my second pair of ATH-m50s for months now. I loved the things but the second pair just broke and I think it's finally time for an upgrade. I record ambient music, so the more neutral, the better, though I'm far from opposed to more...
