I second the Nighthawks recommendation (listening to them right now) Gorgeous sound, supreme comfort. Just dropped to $350 due to launch of new model. Well worth grabbing at that price. Would also second the Fidelios - I was close to buying them when looking for new headphones, but then I demoed the Nighthawks and it was all over.
Would also say the Final Audio Sonorous III is pretty damn nice, though I find the high end to be a little too sharp for my tastes.
I would not describe the HD650s as boring.....they are not my sound signature of choice but they give a very honest presentation of the music, and a nice soundstage.

Sorry - just saw your musical preferences, 650s are not for you.

Best Headphones under $300
❓❓❓❓❓ What are the best pair of headphones available thru Drop that are UNDER $300? I already have the Drop + THX Panda headphones which I love but would like a touch more punch to its base and am looking for a second pair of headphones. Looking forward to the different opinions and options thrown out there. Thanks in advance for all your suggestions. StaySafe & HappyListening Boomer 🎧🐼

Is it possible to use the Topping DX7 Pro headphones dac/amp as an amp only, bypassing the dac and feeding the amp from an Audioquest DragonFly? If possible, what cable would I need from the 3.5 mm socket of the DragonFly to what input in the DX7 Pro? Thank you all very much.

Question from a book I'm reading
Hi guys, First time post here. New audiophile. I'm reading a book (Harley, Robert. The Complete Guide to High-End Audio (p. 343). Acapella Publishing. Kindle Edition. ) and noticed the following statement: Briefly, inexpensive portable audio devices tend to work best when driving headphones of high impedance (i.e., higher than about 100 ohms). Low-impedance headphones perform better when driven by a more robust amplifier, such as those found in portable DACs and dedicated headphone amplifiers. Is it correct? Based on my knowledge so far, it should be portable audio devices for low impedance headphone, and amp for high impedance ones. TIA! CJ

Do i have to have a DAC to use my speakers with an amplifier?
I'm very new to this audiophile-stuff, and i have theese old Sony speakers, so i was wondering if i would be able to use an AMP with the speakers, without a DAC? Can anyone explain how it works? Thanks in advance.

Any Focal Elegia owners (or of other headphones) that noticed more bass and louder volume with another cable compared to the stock one?
I suspect my Elegia's stock cable came defective. I just plugged both my beyerdynamic Amiron home and HIFIMAN HE 5XX cables to the Elegia and on the same volume on the MIYO DAC (12 of 100), they sound a bit louder and unrestrained, and also the bass sounds big and finally level with the rest of the forward mids and well-blended highs. They're no longer bass shy and bothersome with the showty mids and overall anemic presentation. It's not a small difference. Waddaya guys think? You can still chime in if you've experienced this with other headphones. Is it cable impedance? Cable material? Is my stock cable defective? Is it not defective and that's how the headphones should sound? I want to mention that the horrible, poor excuse of a stock cable is terminated in 3.5mm TS earcup plugs. The HIFIMAN and beyerdynamic cables have 3.5mm TRS earcup plugs. I don't know if that plays into it. I don't think it matters, but I'm not a cable enthusiast. I live the stock cable, single-ended...

I replaced one tube, tube rollin. The large tube is an original RCA tube from the late 60's. Sounds so delicious!

My Equalizer APO Presets for the Sennheiser HD 6XX
I like the HD 6XX as is, but even more tweaked to my taste. I have no golden ears nor am I a sound engineer. I'm just your regular audio-loving dude. Just wanted to share my frequency response files (for the 15-band graphic EQ). They are just moderate tweaks that my ears like. While not big adjustments, maybe they're too much for you. Decongest gets rid of the stuffyness, honkyness and brightens up everything a bit. LivenUp is the same as Decongest but with some bass kick added. Lite versions have smaller tweaks. Some music tracks already have too much lows and highs. Make sure the Preamplification is set to -6.00 so you don't clip. https://www.dropbox.com/s/v7gg8mqgws5uxga/HD%206XX%20Equalizer%20APO%20Presets%20%5BSFOG7%5D.zip?dl=0 You don't need an account. Just click the download icon besides Sign up and choose Direct download. Enjoy! If you're curious about the choices I made, I've been noodling in computer music since 2002. Those tweaks are in the most common...
