First time buying. Which headphones would you recommend?
Okay TL;DR version before the story so I don't waste time: Which out of the 5 headphones listed here would be best for me? (first time open back buyer, but I know what I'm looking/listening for mostly but stumped on hardware). Based on your combined knowledge of the following headphones: Hifiman HE4XX Planar magnetic Hifiman HE5XX Planar magnetic Beyerdynamic DT990 PRO Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee Sennheiser HD 6XX //images at the very end, scroll to see. Would be very helpful too if an amp and/or DAC is recommended that goes well with the list above (combined cost of around $200 max) Thanks. Story (kinda) I've been looking at getting my first pair of open-back headphones for a while (for music, gaming and movies). I've watched many reviews and I seem to have decided on 5, but I'm struggling to pick one out of the five. I currently use ATH-M50x's (for years now), and they sound great. No complaints at all. But I would like to have a decent open back pair as well. However...
Preamp for volume control of left, right channels?
Does anyone know of a preamp-like device that can adjust the level of the left and right channels with either a pan/balance control or separate left/right volume controls? I want to be able to turn down the right channel a few DB to compensate for partial hearing loss. I'd love something with the footprint and pricing of the various JDS Labs, Mayflower and/or Schitt boxes but haven't seen anything on the market that can do pan/balance other than high-end headphone amps. Thanks!
This buzzing noise started to happen like a month ago. It was just static noise after being paired to the phone, then it getting louder and louder now, whenever I try to connect it on Bluetooth, it goes crazy buzzing sounds, for like five minutes and non-stop both earpieces. It also can't be controlled with a sound bar or anything, just goes loud so that I can't wear it at all. But, weirdly it stops when I connect it to my laptop using the bundle 3.5mm cable. What do you think of this problem? I'm gonna contact the customer support team, but this is so uncomfortable to use it. Sometimes it goes like 10 minutes. Did anyone have the same issue as mine?
