Have been debating on a closed back set of cans but not sure which way to go. Considered the HD820 or maybe the Audeze LCD-XC. Have a set of Oppo-PM3, but they aren’t really in the same class. I also sold my Audeze LCD-2 once I got the Senns, as they just couldn’t match up, so not sure the LCD-XC would scratch the itch either. Anyone have any recommendations?

Those two you‘re considering are hard to beat. Consider the Ether Flow C also. I heard all of them and for my ears and sound preferen I like the LCDXC.

Will sennheiser and drop continue to make this set? It’s one of my favs by far and would be a shame to see it go out of production.

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...

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!

Headphone System Suggestions
Hoping for some opinions and guidance from the headphone crowd on what is possible with improving my setup. For the last couple of years I have spent a few hours on the majority of nights listening to music in bed before sleeping. The setup was an iPad Air (which still has the jack) and a pair of V-Moda Crossfade M100s. I also have a pair of AKG K240s but have not been able to drive them effectively with the iPad or another device, a Hiby R3. The R3 is mostly used in the Jeep but I have dragged it upstairs to try. The content is my main library which is all FLAC but mostly I listen to Spotify Premium. I like higher volume, mostly rock content. But I do have a decent collection of jazz and some other things. For my main room I run an Anthem AVM 60 pushing into a Krell KSA 150 and a pair of Klipsch hybrid designs. I don't really listen to music much down there, but I spend hours with the headphones. When I do listen on the main system I stream into the Anthem with a...

PC38x headset mic not working
I just got my PC38x and tested it out on my laptop. The headset sounds great but I can't seem to get the mic to work. In the settings, you can see the mic but no sounds can be heard. I've tried the mic in multiple different orientations. I believe it might be the cable or the headset but I'm not sure. I have asked multiple discord servers about the problem and tried many solutions but it does work.
