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

    The following table is based on measurements, not manufacturer specs.   Target SPL is 110 dB SPL. The source is assumed to output 2 V. The amp is assumed to be a voltage source (0 ohm output impedance). Voltage, current, power are RMS figures.   What do the columns mean? S@1V is the...

    Do you guys feel COMPELLED to listen to music since you bought nice headphones?

    Hi all,   I've spent a lot of money on headphones (at least relative to income). I somehow feel like this compels me to use them everyday. Does this happen to you? How many hours a day do you end up listening to music?

    Sennheiser PX 100-II vs. Koss Porta Pro = Can someone help me compare earpiece size for in-helmet installation?

    Guys, I already know the Koss PortaPro ear pieces can be easily removed and placed into a Motorcycle helmet.  But I prefer the specs of the Sennheiser PX 100-II better.  Could someone who has both headsets please compare the thickness of the Sennheiser ear pieces against the Koss to see if it's...

    Who still has their original Sennheiser PX 100's?

    I have been floating from phone to phone lately...I brought these back out of my dresser where I keep most of my cans. I forgot why I stopped using these to begin with.    They still work! No problems with the cords or anything. I will say this...I know they get compared to the Porta Pros (I...

    The PX 100 and PX 100 ii. Is there a difference?

    For a while, I have been searching for a portable can which would help me with my metal (Death, Tech Death, Black, Post....) listening needs. Due to the speed, complexity and bad recording/mastering techniques prevalent in  this genre, it is not exactly suitable for every other headphone. Since...

    Will Sennheiser PX 100-II fit the PX-100 case?

    Hi! Has anyone tried fitting the PX 100-II (comes with a soft "bag", as far as I know) into the original model PX 100 hard case? I suspect they might not fit, as the headband appears a bit wider on the PX 100-II, but firm info from someone who has tried it would be nice to have. Anyone? Thank...

    What is the size of the drivers in the Koss Portapros?

    I'm in the process of buying new headphones.  I searched the web, stumbled across Head-Fi, and I immediately became interested in the world of Hi-Fi music.  I've found rave reviews of the Portapros and settled on them for the price, claimed sound quality, and bass (I listen to a lot of hip-hop)...

    best sounding compact upgrade cans over my sony mdr-a10 headphones?

    i just got my first mp3-player, and found that it has an anemic amp that cannot properly drive my sennheiser ovation hd560s [plus the senns are very bulky and not suitable for travelling], so i searched through my odds and ends drawer for a pair of cans that were more sensitive and found an old...

    Finally got the new PX 100s, decided to compare them to the old ones

    I still have my old PX 100's. They still work and pump out great sound.    I kept reading comparisons between the two. It seems pretty equally divided as to which one is better.    Differences I notice (I should note that all of the listed differences are very subtle. I had my sister try out...

    Cheap headphones with good soundstage

    Hello guys!   I am looking for some headphones with a good soundstage and rather cheap. I live in Europe so the AD700 isn't an option (because it socts about 200$ or more) and the Senn HD558 didn't really do it for me. Any suggestions?

    Portable Comparison: Koss Porta Pro vs Sennheiser PX 100-II

    Introduction Koss introduced us to the Porta Pro in 1984, long before I ever start embracing this hobby. It was one of the first headphones developed specifically portable use. Who knew it would be around 30 years later, relatively unchanged, and still popular as ever? Competition has come...
