I wonder why I can hardly find full size headphones with multi-driver. As we know ,you got these good headphones balanced just like the mono-block trick in speaker systems. And those multi-driver IEMs from mainstream to flagship make me think this is another trick learned from speakers. But how about full size headphones ?

The main issue with full-sized over ear headphones is that the differences in positioning of the drivers would distort the soundstage and create imaging artifacts. You can do it in am IEM because the differences in positioning are canceled out when all the separate wavefronts are forced through the same tunnel into your ear canal. It's also helped that the drivers are very efficient, with much higher sensitivity than typical headphone dynamic drivers, so the lost energy from the crossover network isn't a huge deal. Many of the same parts used in IEMs would also explode if subjected to the amount of power that many headphone amps deliver, and replacements that can handle the stress are larger, and you'd need to figure out where to put them.

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 🎧🐼

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...

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.
