OK... I am going thru forums, reading and watching reviews for DAC/AMP combo for my pc and... seriously i do not know which one to choose. Here is my 'wish list'... maybe you can help... Main goal is to... like everybody i guess: listen to music / watch movies / gaming. Gaming is priority. I am not audiophile (sorry). But I do appreciate good sound quality. Wish List: will not 'break the bank' - preferable under $200... I would prefer it to have mic input but it is not a 'must' requirement. I would prefer it to be 'external' device. Not a must though. Need controls on the desk though. I would prefer it to work 'driverless'. So... hardware-based. I would like it to have some kind of hardware equalizer. I would like to be able to connect (computer) speakers and headphones the same time it does not need to be 5.1/7.1 etc. I prefer good stereo over these systems. Does anything like this exist? Closest to all checkmarks is Sennheiser GSX1000... i guess... not the newest technology...
Pairing up a gamer with the right headphone is a bit like playing matchmaker! In this video, linked at the end, I boil down over 10 years of community advice into 3 Personality types: • Competitive • Entertainment • Immersion I share a few keywords to look for, as well as some software and settings suggestions. I think everyone has a little bit of each type in them, but which type is dominant for you? Thanks to the sponsor of this video: DekoniAudio.com Dekoni is a headphone accessories company, unique for providing frequency response graphs on their website so you know what effect their various pad options will have. Thanks also to Drop for giving me permission to share here. I hope it helps everyone! The video: https://youtu.be/42SRsSlIj-c
Hello everyone! I’ve been here in Drop/Massdrop for a few years, also on Head-Fi since 2008, and I’ve seen a few common questions and gaps in knowledge over the years. So, to try answering them so that I (or you) can simply link a video when a common question comes up, I “rebooted” my YouTube channel with new videos to serve as a guide for new and intermediate personal audio enthusiasts! Thanks for accepting my amateur production with a “shrug” and a subscribe, I’ll try to upload 1-2 videos a week and add them here as well. Go ahead and leave audio questions you think others would also want answered! YouTube Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4bc2SQk0h2TrE0K07t2WI5by66ArtDAb
Order shipment problem that nobody it caring my support request at Drop
I ordered a headphone 4 weeks ago. Shipment is waiting at Germany to be send to Turkey for 3 weeks. I'm sending customer request forms for help from Drop but it looks like nobody is checking it or not caring, getting no response from Drop. Any idea to get their customer support's attention?
I know it's a dumb question because I know a 3.5mm to a 4.4mm connection takes more hardware than a simple jack to transfer a balanced signal, but has any "balanced" nut out there found a real adapter that actually makes this work?
I just got a pair of the Sennheiser HD-6XX and have been listening for a few days. The headphones seem very out of balance - most of the sound seems to be coming from the right cup. I did a reality check and switched the wire so the right terminal was in the left cup and vice versa, and the weight of the music was still on the right side. Then I did a reality check with my travel headphones (Bose Quiet Comfort 35s - don't judge - if you've ever been near a screaming child on an airplane you know how crucial a pair of these are) and did NOT notice the same phenomenon. Anyone else have this issue? Did I just get a bum pair?
