    Best "open" headphones under $40 ?

    Will be used mostly for movies, plugged into my receiver's headphone jack. I prefer on ear, as long as they are lightweight and comfy on the ears. Over the ear are fine too, but if the cups are not deep and large enough, and touch my ears, I hate that. Thanks.

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

    Need help with Superlux 668Bs and pairing them up with a soundcard.

    I currently own a pair of 668Bs which I use through a Creative Sound Blaster X-fi HD (USB one, though using it on a desktop).   And boy are they hissy on highs. And I believe that the Sound Blaster might be part of the problem. The highs can really be annoying, and cymbal sounds for example...

    Sub $100 cans with best design/build quality?

    So I am basically looking for cans that have good sound stage and are very well built. The last few sets I've tried had problems with noise from cheap plastic design/hinges and the cord making ticking noises when moved. At this point I am now willing to sacrifice sound quality and comfort for...

    Reasonably priced over-ear headphones for the gym?

    I'm looking to get the ATH-M50's because I keep hearing so many good things about them from around the forums, but I can't find any information on whether they'd be able to perform well at the gym. My main concern is that non-durable headphones can't put up with that kind of "abuse".   I had...

    Post your EQ settings!

    Hi guys! I'm curious as to what kind of EQ you have on. I know most of us don't have it (I don't have on most of the time) but it's still interesting what kind of sound signature you exactly want.     For example, I just made this EQ according to Tyll's data on the HD668B to give it a flat...

    [Review] Meelectronics Atlas

      Pros: Multiple designs to choose from, in-line microphone, removable cable, overall fun sound, good imaging and level of detail. Cons: Likely will not fit large heads, clamp might be loose for some, build quality doesn’t inspire confidence, isolation is poor, recessed mids and slightly...

    Would like to be able to watch blu-ray movies from my blu-ray player and computer with headphones and good virtual 5.1 sound.

    I live in a small space that will not be able to have true 5.1 speakers in or positioned well.  Plus I'm sure my walls are not sound proof enough not to bother others should loud sounds like explosions or gun fire happen.  Reading online I read about a device called MixAmp Pro that takes the...
