    Listening with speakers and open-back headphones simultaneously dramatically improved the soundstage!

    TL;DR: Played music through speakers and headphones at the same time; discovered that doing this yields soundstage and details that neither the speakers nor the headphones can produce alone.

    I've been looking around for a good budget set of tower speakers and I've noticed that frequently, they're sold as singles instead of pairs. Yet, in some cases, a better pair from the same company will be sold for the same price as a couple of lesser speakers that are sold individually. Is...

    A Youtube channel called "Tek Syndicate" made a video back in 2014 debunking audio myths and mentioned amps and headphones in the second part; they said that the point of diminishing returns for an amp is $300 and for headphones that it is $500.
