Alas I only have two pairs of headphones, my Beyerdynamic DT770 Studio Pro 80 Ohms (home use) and Sony MDR-XB950B1's (portable use) so you should already know which one's I'm going to choose. And it's not the Sony's. (Currently waiting for my new HE 4XX's so let's see what happens once they arrive). All three will be driven by an iFi Nano iDSD Black Label. Edit: Of course less than a week later the line out plug for the Nano stops working. (I only get output from the left speaker and changing the plug and line in jacks of my receiver didn't do anything.) Now I own the XDuoo XD-05 which holy sh*t it's like night and day. I'll be keeping the Nano but just as a really cheap DAC/headphone amp for my tablet. At least until the headphone jack breaks.

I have the Dt770 80ohm as well. It is sensational for the money and hard to upgrade from. I also have akg 701s which give a very different dynamic, and some final audio pandora hope vi which kind of bridge the gap. The Final Audios are amazingly exciting/ lively but tiring after a while. I keep coming back to the dt770s

I tried the AKG's which to me sounded a bit on the brighter side, before I decided on the DT's. The Beyer's also had a better sound stage and imaging than the AKG's, and for less than half the price at the time. Plus the build quality of the DT's is also IMHO a lot better than the AKG's. Glad I picked the right ones.

Yeah they're great. The AKGs are fab also, particularly for music with a broader soundscape, but they don't rock like the Beyer's.

Is it normal for HD 560s to slightly fade out then restore to normal volume when gaming with an occasional squeaky/static noise with it?
Recently bought the 560s and have been super pleased except for a couple of things. I use them for music, movies, and PC gaming. When gaming (CoD: Vanguard), the sound will occasionally fade out (not completely) for a couple of seconds then back to normal. Sometimes with a soft squeaky/static sound in one or both sides of the headphone. It is hooked up to my computer through DAC which is more than powerful enough to drive it. Has anyone had this issue? This is my first stint into the audiophile arena. Wasn't sure if this was normal or could it be the game? I have only noticed it when gaming, but I have also gamed a lot more than I have streamed music and movies.

Which headphone amplifier is suitable for Sundara?
Hi, everyone I'm a beginner, just started head-fi. DAC is iFi zen dac V2/Headphones have HIFIMAN's SUNDARA. The source device is a normal home computer (window 11). I use Tidal&Spotify and enjoy classical music, crossover music, and contemporary jazz performances and K-Pop. I'm currently using it directly to the zen dac V2, but I'm going to buy a headphone amplifier for better sound quality. I look forward to your advice on which of the two products, zen can signature HFM and DROP THX aaa 789, will suit my current situation. (The budget does not exceed U$300) Thanks!

Bob Surkein - an old audiophile
I have been a music lover and audiophile for many years. I hate to say for exactly how long. Let's just say that my first serious audio system dates back to the mid 1960s. My favorite headphones from around that era were Koss ESP-9 electrostatics, which had fantastic performance but were not very reliable. Then I had several sets of Sennheisers; and more recently Grados, for probably the last 20 years. I only became aware of Drop just last year; and the first thing I did was take the opportunity to buy a couple of popular, new models - the Sennheiser HD 6XX, and Hifiman HE-X4, mainly to check out what is available today at a reasonable (for me) price point. I have to say that I was disappointed with both, compared to my Grado SR-325Xs, or even my SR-80s and SR-60s. I seem to be addicted to the Grado sound. For what it's worth, and just as a point of comparison, I have also briefly listened to some multi thousand-dollar Focal headphones, which were awesome (and which my wife...

Drop x HiFiMAN HE-R7DX - Redefining Budget Reference
Preface: Hello. I am a fellow music lover slash audiophile who has been with the community for a while. I am lucky to have been able to experience a very wide range of headphones, and I have also had the opportunity to own some of them myself. After years of exploring the hobby and collecting numerous pieces of gears, I have finally settled with a Sennheiser HD800S and HD650 as my main headphones. So please read this review bearing in mind that my preference in headphone sound is toward a darker tonality with more bass, and more midrange emphasis without losing too much clarity and soundstage. I would like to thank my friends at Drop for providing me with the opportunity to check this headphone out. I honestly have too many open-back headphones and I have looked for years for a decent closed-back headphone to no avail. There have been some good candidates, but nothing got even close to the performance I can get from my open-back headphones. So when I learned that these headphones...
