    Headphones sensitivity, impedance, required V/I/P, amplifier gain

    Closed Headphone blues

    Hey everyone.    After listening to my crappy 2.0 Logitech speakers for so long, I've decided that it's time to buy a new pair of headphones. Over the years, I've owned a few decent headphones, which I use about 70/30 for gaming and music respectively. These were the HD598, HD555, and the...

    Good portable and foldable headphones under $100

    Hey all,   I am currently bringing my Sennheiser HD 555's to work every day and it's definitely less than ideal as they're quite large. I'm looking for a sub-$100 set of cans which will be very portable. I'd prefer a set that folds. A good reference set of cans for what I'm looking for would...

    Boomphones worth it?

    Thinking of starting a headphone collection slowly, but surely. They seem interesting in terms of the external speakers. I hear they are not bad, but i wanted some more opinions and i thought i might find a review here after using this website previously before i bought V-Moda's Crossfade M-80s...

    Removing foam "cube" - HD555 / 595 cable replacement

    In the cable replacement instructions for these series of headphones, the leaflet makes mention of temporarily removing (what I presume is) the black piece of foam that covers the area near the cable termination. Trouble is that the leaflet simply says to "remove" the foam, but the foam...

    Bought my first pair of IEM's. Is this not for everyone?

    Hi, I just bought UE 900's coming from my Sennheiser HD555's. I don't know if it's just me, but I can't stand them. It hasn't been a full 24 hours yet and I've already gone back to my Sennheisers. Is there something I'm missing here? Here are my gripes. 1. Given all the tips, I couldn't find...

    The headphones for movies thread

    I want awesome headphones 95% for movies. I've spent the past month reading countless posts on head-fi, and have found that music reproduction dominates the conversation. When movie audio comes up, there are often responses pointing users to budget-fi or low mid-fi models in the midst of...

    HD 555 headband replacement - will the one from HD 558 fit?

    Hey   My HD 555 headband broke few days ago. I nearly bought HD 598, but more rational approach would be trying to fix the current headset.   Although only the small plastic element (the slim plastic for regulating height of the right headphone) broke, seems I have to buy whole headband...

    Question regarding Denon AH-D1100 clamping force with glasses

    As the topic states, I've read that the Denon D1100s are fairly comfortable headphones, but I haven't found any information about their comfort level while wearing glasses. I've been using the Sennheiser HD555s for a while as I've grown to love their comfort after using them for so long. Sadly...
