What exactly goes into designing the next best headphone/earphone? What is the real difference between different generations of technologies that go into different devices other than just small tweaks to design? What makes the next generation truly better than the last? Or is every improvement just trying to get more decimal points on measurements in the product specifications? Have there been anything that you would consider truly game changing/revolutionary breakthroughs in headphone technology recently? What are they?

CANS for METAL?
Cans for METAL? I have some Grado sr60e’s and AT ATH-AD700 but looking to upgrade. I’m not an audiophile (yet) but both of these I find “shimmery” and sometimes a bit harsh esp the Grados and a bit IDK empty? sounding. I mostly listen to metal/thrash but these will be probably my go-to’s in general. I’ve read a lot (probably too much..planar,dynamic, HE vs HD, etc) but just don’t know. I will drive with an amp (also would take a recommendation) and budget $300 or less for the headphones. Many thanks in advance.

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

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...
