    Who here tried the Sennheiser Orpheus?

    God, headphones system for 16K$... If this doesn't sound good, then I don't know what does. How many were made? I saw some data that says less than 100 systems.

    Best headphones ever

    What would you say are the best headphones ever made, price-no-object. I know its subjective, but if you could have any one pair of headphones to use most of the time, what would it be?

    Question For Stax 009 & HD800 Fans Who Like Electronic Music

    I've been steadily upgrading my gear over the last several years. Currently, I'm running a Headroom Max into HD800s.   I went through several different upgrades on my way to the HD800s, with the previous step being the HD650s. Of course, both are awesome, but the HD800s are SO much more...

    What is your favorite sound signature (i.e. what kind of sound are you really after?)

    I think this might be a useful discussion. We all talk about our favorite headphones, but because we all hear in different ways we have rather different takes on them. So, let's take headphones out of the picture for a second and see what we're really after in a system. Then, we can put them...

    Is Sennheiser considering an Orpheus (HE90) revival?

    Given the fact that Sennheiser decided to showcase the Orpheus headphones at CES this year, this has got me thinking that Sennheiser could possibly be thinking of a revival in some guise as a successor to the HD800's and make it their new flagship headphone. To me it seems like the next step in...

    Margin of diminishing returns?? Do $200 headphones sound "the same" as >$500, or $1000 headphones? (assuming proper amplification)

    I've always been wondering this -- at what price point does the margin of diminishing returns hit the peak, for headphones?   For example, I'm listening to my Beyer DT880-600 right now and they hold a solid ground against my much more expensive D7000's. Though given I am listening off a pretty...
