I have no use for non-closed headphones. If I want other people to hear, I listen to speakers.

I've got a modded set of Fostex T50s, and some Pioneer DJ HDJ-2000s (I used to be a DJ, and still have the gear). I'm thinking about some Meze Classic 99s, or some Audioquest Night Owls (which are almost cheap now, after being discontinued). Maybe some of Massdrop's Fostex collabs.

DJ IN THE HOUSE! I love making playlists and themes, but picking music for other people is hard... and my efforts often fall flat unless I know the person really well (and even then, I can’t seem to appease people that like genres I don’t).
I also have modded Fostex T50RPs – the Dekoni Blue – I’m borrowing a pair of TH 900, I have Sennheiser GAME ZERO and PX480, Creative Aurvana Live 2, and a bunch of Closed back IEMs. I kickstarted the Audeze Mobius, which I quite liked when I got to demo them at a recent PGH audio meet (thanks @AlwaysForward !), but what I really want (and it will be awhile before I can afford it) is the Sennheiser HD 820. I also liked my demo of the Beyerdynamic T51p for an on-the-go headphone, but it’s been quite a while since I heard one and I don’t know if it would still be to my taste.

Cool! Talking about DJing, have you by any chance heard the Denon DN-HP700 DJ headphones? Heard they are good (around m50x good), I had a chance to get them but unfortunately decided to get their markedly inferior younger sibling instead XD

I haven't had any reason to update my DJ headphones, so I have no idea what else out there is good or bad. The HDJ-2000 was built well-nigh indestructible, and although the sound signature is not ideal for listening, it IS ideal for keeping track of where your kicks, snares and hi-hats are.
I actually think if I were building up a DJ rig from scratch, I would probably go with IEMs for the monitor 'phones.

Drop should make a DT88X
Throughout my time as an audiophile I've read quite a lot of positive reviews regarding the DT880 Pro, especially the 600 ohms version, I've seen it being highly praised for it's build quality, comfort and sound, however there is one fault I'd point out: no removable cables. As much as the DT880 Pro is marketed towards professional usage ( at least that's what I think, given the "Pro" in it's name ) it is adored by the audiophile community, thus I'd love to see a more audio-enthusiast focused version which only difference would be having a removable cable with a 3.5mm connector on each cup. I reckon the benefits would be quite sizeable : you wouldn't be confined to the 3m cable of the original version; it'd possible to run it balanced (which would help with the endeavour of properly amplifying the 600 ohms version); should the cable fail due to an accident or the throes of time dealing with it would be much simpler and , finally, if you are part of Team...

Drop + THX Panda -- Bluetooth Audio Clipping Whenever Resumed from a Pause of More than 2 Seconds
I don't have much experience with Bluetooth headphones and figured I'd ask here to help set my expectations a bit. I just bought some Drop + THX Panda headphones. They're well reviewed for sound quality and supporting higher-end audio codecs, some of which Macs support (eg: aptX) and some of which they don't (eg: LDAC). Anywho, upon unboxing them and pairing them to my 2020 iMac running Big Sur, I noticed that audio over bluetooth sounds totally fine until it's been paused for more than 2 seconds. When I unpause, it almost feels as if maybe the headphones are coming out of some standby or low-power mode and are rushing to start a new bit stream. The sound is clipped / distorted for a second or two until it "catches up". This is particularly annoying for things like notifications and other sound effects which, by nature, are essentially really short audio clips. I can't find anything online explaining if this is normal behavior or just a shortcoming of bluetooth or these specific...

DAC/Amp Combo for MASSDROP X SENNHEISER HD 6XX HEADPHONES
Hi! I am seriously considering buying the HD 6xx's, and I'm very new to advanced audio. I was wondering what is the best DAC/Amp combo for these headphones around $100. Thanks in advance! Edit: Would FiiO E10K work?
