Haha, I went into Best Buy and tried on the beats and monster headphones and loved how they sounded compared to like $10 ear buds and my father as well as the internet told me they were terrible, and he pointed me to good brands like AKG, Shure, Sennheiser, Audio-Technica, and a few other brands. With so many options came research, which gave me enlightenment. I picked up the latest AKG K553 drop, but my first decent ear buds were $60 Sennheisers with in-line remotes for my Samsung Note 2 (which was a requirement), and I currently listen to my beloved ATH-M50Xs.

Hi so i want to buy these headphones, they look great and i heard great things about them but i want to buy a usb dac/amp so i can use their full potential. Also this is kind of a budget i dont want to spend 400 dollars on an amplifier, i prefer it to be under 100 dollars but im willing to pay 20-30 dollars more if necessary. Thank you!

Drop THX AAA 789 updated version?
Received email that the THX AAA 789 "will be gone soon"... Does that mean they will soon come up with an updated version? I would like an updated model with the following: 1) More power 2) A preamp function with balanced outputs as well as SE 3) Balanced 4.4mm pentacon output next to 4pin-XLR and SE output. 4) Selector switch for SE / Balance inputs instead of toggle. 5) Selector switch for HP amp / preamp function An upgrade to use the AAA 888 chip would be nice too.

Hello, What is the Bitrate for these headphones? Also I am looking at the frequency chart on the official webpage, and it cuts off at 20hz - 20khz. There a way to see how this performs from like 10hz to 40khz? Thank you

TOPPING DX7 PRO DAC/AMP - Will Not Power On
Any suggestions on how to fix a TOPPING DX7 PRO DAC/AMP that will not power on? I bought the unit 3 months ago and worked fine until recently. I've already checked the AC fuse, replaced the power cord and tried a different AC power outlet. Thanks!

Don't head much of a difference between ATH m50x, HD 58x and HE 4xx
As the title says, I don't hear any big difference between these headphones. I originally had the ATH m50x for some time and was content. However, a few weeks ago, I read that a lot of people were saying that it wasn't that good of a pair of headphone and there were many better ones out there. 2 of which, were the HD 58x jubilee and the Hifiman He 4xx. So I ordered these 2 headphones and have been using them with my desktop for the last couple of weeks. I bought these 2 because I heard that open-back headphones sounded different from closed-back, and that the sound stage between these 2 were also completely different. However, if I am being completely honest, I don't head much of a difference between these 3 headphones. I am a little disappointed now though because after spending so much money I honestly don't think it was much of an upgrade. Are my ears just broken, or is there something that I am missing that make people praise these massdrop headphones and bash the ATH m50x?

Kinera released an updated version of their first flagship IEMs, Odin. The Odin 2.0 really caught my attention because of the beautiful faceplates. I haven't really heard any all-ba iems except the Dunu SA6. Wondering how it sounds. Any input/ feedback will be appreciated!

Sennheiser HD6XX or HIFIMAN HE5XX? or Other?
Hey all, Not quite an audiophile, but a music lover and creator and could use some advice. First open-back pair I'll have purchased in a while. Had a pair of Grados, but sold as I never found time to listen with them in the right environment. Now that I'm working from home, feels like the right time to purchase, but of course listening through speakers when I can too! This is my lineup today for context, so might be nice to find something that fits within: Meze 99 Classics Audioquest NightOwl Airpods (Not pro, never like deep in-ear and headaches w/ ANC) Audio-Technica ATH-M50xbt (Arriving today in the mail. For work calls and listening on-the-go, have always gotten headaches and nausea from ANC; these seem like the best solution w/o. I did order the Sony XM4s just to do one final test, but will likely get the same headache and I've read they don't sound as good with ANC turned off, or when used with a wire. High hopes for the ATs as they seem to maintain the standard M50x...
