Just a friendly reminder that Stax headphones are audiophool garbage.

$4000 SR-009 was rated lower in blind tests than a $200 K701
http://www.aes.org/e-lib/browse.cfm?elib=17441

Even best Stax headphones sound objectively worse than mid-fi, kek

how much better are dac's with worse signal/noise ratios with balanced out vs better s/n without balanced outs? if they aren't any better then shouldn't best s/n determine everything? (assuming it has the inputs you need)
>>
basically smsl su-8-v2 dac $212 vs schitt modi3 $100, modi3 is nearly as good for much lower price. if balance really doesn't make a difference then why would anyone ever consider the smsl su-8-v2?

i'm not even gonna listen and if there is any difference you can hear (in a fucking youtube vid) whatever setup the guy has is flawed
however there is zero reason to pick optical over usb
>>
>>
>>69768606
oh ok. well i thought the difference was really balanced connection vs unbalanced not usb vs spdif although i don't think that was the authors belief
>>
>>69768630

>>
>>69768738
dude. if there is a difference, the setup is flawed. there should be no audible difference, even though optical would technically be worse than usb.
balanced output and cables are nothing special, are super cheap and used for speakers/monitors to remove background interference and noise.
>>
>>69768762
what about crosstalk tho

doesn't it increase total harmonic distortion which changes the signal-to-noise and distortion ratio which lowers quality?

You’re absolutely going to get harmonic distortion from a cable. Is this what you wanted to hear? Are you happy now?

i'm not referring to outside interference, what i'm afraid of is the signals bluring together like an rc coaxial connection for nintendo vs scart

Maybe you should google “unbalanced vs balanced connection audio” instead of spamming /hpg/ for 3 days straight with stupid questions.
>>
>>69767925
Doesnt the smsl also have things like Bluetooth and a remote? Its actually really handy for a budget home theater. Set it by your tv and plug a pair of powered speakers via xlr and control volume with the remote control. I guess if you just plop it on to your desk and connect it to headphone amp then yeah its a waste.

just remote. if xlr connections aren't needed then is there any reason to buy a dac better than the modi3? the graphs i read showing "signal-to-noise and distortion ratio" between different dacs show that there isn't much of a jump at all to the $250 smsl dac vs $100 modi3 dac besides the balanced connections.

Nice, you cherrypicked a DAC designed around balanced inputs.

>>69770382
Pick ANY measurement, there is always difference. At least in crosstalk.

You still get better results with balanced if both are implemented properly
>>
>>69770394
>there is always difference
Assuming your DAC even has balanced inputs, which it hardly needs to.

8 days,
dt1990 - better sound, bass is amazing (you almost feel it in your neck or teeth sometimes), almost like having speakers on loud with these with volume up
hd660s - comfier for wearing longer, probably staying as casual for when just browsing or gaming with voice chat etc. sound is also great (bigger/beefier than hd600/hd650, but NOT brighter). on loud volumes they kinda go into sounding almost mushy

So does this prove that the 252S is all I need?
I have not got around to buying a lambda yet but I've been thinking about snapping up the first used/stand-alone 252S that I see so I can buy a l300LE or L700 instead should I want to.
don't bother talking me out of it btw headphones are a hobby for me and I want to hear/play with an estat.
>>69771309
No, that's actually more ideal because it places no stress on the headband/hinges. Some headphones will be more prone to failure if hung up(looking at you hifiman).
If you only have one headphone then yeah don't buy one but if you have multiple the chinks make nice acrylic or wood ones for $10.

Ah man, did you post here before buying? The khadas tone board would have been an objectively superior choice.
The 789 doesn't care weather you input balanced or not because the balanced outputs come from the SE circuits on the inside of the thing.
The SMSL is still good but the khadas tone is better for $100. Also you have basically nothing to gain from upgrading to the 789 from the atom unless you're using like a -15db pre or an he-6.

Why not both?
LCD-2 classic is dark at the same time, pushes enough details that doesn't make the treble sound grainy.
>>
>>69773430
The null is a measurement error on the 307. Other than this, they are not DF oriented cans. You can EQ them to DF using ED-1 but the result pleases very few.

LCD2 is a sidegrade and really does lack detail compared to even dynamic headphones in its price range

/g/, I need some cheap and as comfortable as possible headphones. They have to be closed.
What are my option in general?
For example, what should I pick out of those:

AKG K52
Axelvox HD271
Axelvox HD242
Axelvox HD241
Audio-Technica ATH-AVC200
Sennheiser HD 205 II

Honestly, I don't give a shit about sound quality that much since I don't have a good output at work for them.

I'm sure this has been asked a million times before. And I don't mind being flamed.

But does anyone have honest reviews of shit off of massdrop. My ath-ad700's have shat themselves after 6 years of happy use and I was looking to replace them with something similar. Massdrop seems and interesting and cheap service and from what I can find the only real downside is the waiting game.
Anyone used them before or have any honest experience on their products vs the identical from a manufacturer?

>>69776543
prilosec*
the reason is honey has an enzyme that acts as an antacid.
acv is good to take every few days, just a table spoon of it. what it does is it keeps your body producing alkaline materials cause it thinks its being flooded with acid, and if ur ph drops below 4.1 u catch a bug and get sick. so it prevents you from doing that.
one of my reps cant take it cause it can thin ur blood, though. so ymmv with acv. ive heard it being good for gerd but ive never had success with it.

Doctors generally don't fight each other on anything.
The acid alkaline thing is a fucking meme at this point. Housewife bullshit. Your body has a very sophisticated system of regulating pH so there is no reason to worry. If your blood was too acidic or basic you would have a literal disease and would probably already be in a hospital.
The only real difference high pH food does is fuck your teeth up.
