I love those headphones I've tried them on and listened to music. They have such great comfort and noise isolation. But I dont know if its worth it for 450$ CAN Are they worth that much?

No they suck ass for that price. $450 gets you the Bowers & Wilkins P7 wireless and there is nothing on earth that compares to them in the wireless category. Nothing.

I would get those except for the price :( 650$CAN I could just get a phone for that much. I'm kinda surprised that no one has mentioned the Ghostek SoDrop 2 Headphones or the ones. Because I've heard that they are great.

I've owned a pair of QC35s for a couple of months now, and they sound just God awful. Are they comfortable? You bet. Is their battery life unbelievable? Yup. Is their BT super stable? Sure thing. But...if you care about sound, there is zero justification for spending that kind of money on those cans. The only reason why I have them is because I have a connection that allowed me to pay a stupid-cheap discount. Even with the discount, I'm very much regretting my purchase and will be selling these.

Yup they are nowhere near the competition at that price. Selling based on marketing not premium materials or audiophile quality sound.

Ya I probably wont get the QC35s then. I have heard great things about the Sony MDRXB950B1s though. Whats your thoughts on them? I was going to get them on the Amazon prime deal but wasn't able to they were 100$. I don't know if they are worth $250 CAN though.

JBL just released a brand new noise cancelling Bluetooth pair. I think Everest Elite. $300 at Best buy Canada.... Check them out!JBL is owned by Harman and makes great stuff. I might grab a pair to try out.

Do you have any high end audio stores within driving distance of where you live? Many of them have floor models for people to try on and listen to with their reference music of choice (bring in a CD that you are familiar with that sounds really good). I find that personal recommendations can only get me so far, because everyone has a different ear, and different tastes in terms of what's "good". For my part, I begin by looking at my needs, then I look at my budget to see if my needs are really wants in disguise. Then I look at specs and reviews on products that fit my criteria. Then I take my short list and go to a high end audio store to listen to them. The ultimate deciding factor--no matter the specs or the manufacturer, or the reviews and recommendations--is: what are my ears telling me?

How to pair Shanling player with Anker Soundcore IEMs?
I Can't figure out how to pair my Shanling Q1 audio player with my Anker Soundcore Liberty 2 Pro wireless IEMs. Can anybody help? (I actually didn't even know the Shanling had bluetooth - I don't think it said so in the description on DROP - until this morning when I went to the Shanling site to download the USB driver). Thanks in advance for any help!

Headphone amp with 80 ohm beyerdynamic headphones
I ordered my first pair of audiophile headphones, the beyerdynamic 990 80 ohm version because the nice man at audio46 said it wouldn’t need a headphone amp. My Q is although it wouldn’t need it, would adding a headphone amp to my iPhone make the 80 ohm sound better? Or is it strictly for the 250 ohms that they have to use a headphone amp . I mostly listen to hip hop and r&b music >

Pc38 mic issue on pc
So I bought the pc38s which sound amazing compared to all I have used prior, but no matter what I try, I can not get the mic working on my pc! It works fine when plugged into a controller for console, but simply wont on the pc. I own msi ge75 raider, it has two ports, one for headset, one for the mic! The cords that come with the headset are split into two, each is the 3 pin I think (TRS)... Maybe the port on the computer requires 4 pin or what else can I try? Thank you in advance!

Hello Handsome!
[image] Yes, I'm talking to you, you big black, nondescript, cylindrical-looking bundle of coils and magnets! I have to say, for a guy who looks like a can of Darth Vader brand coffee, you sound damn good! Actually BOTH of you sound damn good ;- ) Yup, I just added a pair of Echo Studios to my bedroom (one on each nightstand). Each Studio contains a five-speaker assortment, including a down-firing 5.3" woofer. And buddy, they WOOF! What made me finally decide to go this route was laziness; yes I could have found good Bluetooth speakers for less, and maybe even good WIFI speakers, but I confess to having developed a fairly serious relationship with Alexa--we have long talks each morning discussing the weather and the news, etc. And she always plays what I tell her too. Second reason is my on again/off again relationship relation with Amazon Music. With the advent of Amazon Music HD, we're back on again. One of the benefits of combining Amazon Music HD with the Studio is the...

Alright Drop, this is getting old.
I've had 4 packages ship for orders in the past year. Two of which have been outright lost by FedEx. Drop's customer support has then made it seem like they were doing me some kind of favor by replacing the lost items and not just taking my money without me actually receiving anything. Now one of my packages, shipped to the same address as the others (which hasn't changed), has a FedEx delivery exception because the "address or apartment/suite number is wrong." And as always, FedEx won't talk to me about it at all, only Drop. As I've done a number of times now I've fired off a Drop support request into the void and now I'll wait to see what response they'll give me. Hopefully they'll take care of this as they have in the past, but it's aggravating that I end up having to contact their support team with essentially every order I make. Especially given that they refuse to provide a phone number (though I can understand why if other people have as many issues as I've had). At this...

Douk Audio?
Has anyone had any experience with Douk Audio preamp/headphone amps? I have a variety of headphones that I use, from multi-driver IEM to closed and open back dynamic, including a few sets from Drop. But I recently picked up a pair of planar magnetic from Andover Audio and while they play reasonably well even with just my phone's audio output, I'd like to get a decent entry level amp for some extra oomph. I found a preamp/headphone amp from Douk Audio that seems to fit generally what I'm looking for, their P1; but I wasn't familiar with the brand and wanted to get some feedback if anyone had any experience with this brand or model.

A Brief History of My Life So-Far...
ABOUT ME I am a retired electrical/mechanical engineer. US Coast Guard graduate. Sailed the high seas as Merchant Marine for 13 years. Briefly worked with NASA for 5.5 years in Florida. I left to start my own Hi-Tech Computer company. My company did anything and everything with computers and computer systems. We were especially known for our Graphics and Gaming computers we built. We built to order Bespoke systems. We were very proud of our workmanship. My company was in operation for almost 27 years. I still build for myself and my family members. I am 74 years old now. Audio Visual has been my lifelong hobby. I love reading Hard science fiction; an example would be the Author Brandon Q. Morris. I like listening to books also. I play few games however, I am addicted to Star Citizen. I do try other games like Alien Isolation, Elite Dangerous, and EVE Online. TOP POSTS & COMMENTS
