    About Sound’s ”Attack, Tightness or Punch”

    Hi All :) I’m sure you all have experienced different sounding media players. Some music players produce a ”warm, soft, open” listening experience. Other players sound more ”analytical, hard, sharp, thight, attack, snappy”. What determines this? 1. What factors of the software kan be tweeked...

    What would be a significant upgrade from Beyerdynamic DT 1990 Pro for music?

    Back in June of 2019 I bought a BD DT1990 Pro with some random audio cables for 450 euros. I am using the headphones with an internal PC sound card, Creative Sound Blaster AE7. But as of yesterday I've starting having issues with audio cutting out on right channel, maybe faulty cable from a lot...

    DT 880 from 2017 sounded different than the one I own now

    I had the DT 880 250ohm back in 2017 right after getting the K702 after asking for recommendations here. I found that the DT880 back then was very bright in comparison to the K702 and had way less sub bass as well. I also thought it had the hardest hitting fastest bass I have heard until then...

    Best Produced Classical Album

    Now that I have a great set of headphones (Focal Utopia), I have been listening to more and more classical music. I am finding that albums released after 2015 have far better sound than those prior to that. In fact, I am finding that I am listening more to the sound of the instruments than...

    Hey, I would like to hear your recommendations for the best sounding headphones for around $350. I'm NOT looking for a flat-reference sound, so I don't think I'd like something like the Sennheiser hd 600's. I'm looking for a wide soundstage and present and punchy low end. What I'm currently...

    Astell ak380 – EQ sliders on AK380 having no effect on Mojo sound signature

    I have managed to acquire my dream audio player second hand in the form of an Astell & Kern AK380. I’m finding the bass and overall ‘oomph’ in the music played to be missing e.g. Sting, INXS and modern soul and funk. A friend of mine connected his Chord Mojo to it using a Micro USB to Micro...
