Okay boys, I got some DT 770s some time ago, and use them for gaming and some music. Only thing that I've realized is, the quality of video game sounds isn't even that notable in comparison to a random pair of headphones that I owned previously that WERE wireless ones. I honestly couldn't tell much difference at all. Can someone tell me if I just have pleb HEARING or is it because sound quality cannot be determined that well in video games?

I would find a material that dampens the prominent mids-highs of the back wave and shape/position it such that it reflects them away from the driver. That way it might sound more like an open headphone even if it's closed.

I will be getting pair of HD600s from a friend in few days. I will be using Burson Soloist SL mk2 heapdhone amp for them (also borrowed from my brother)

The question is: I have this DAC. I'm not very tech-savy: is there something wrong with this DAC perhaps?

I will be using the headphones mostly for some mixing, but plan to listen some records too in "analytical" sense just to get some neutral perspective on my own mixes of my favorite records.

>Do you have any recommendations for amps for when I decide to pick one up?

I would probably get a used one. The good thing with HiFI equipment is that once they are used they get -50% off from price...

So you could get $600 dollar amplifier for $300.. usually they are not that much used and I would be worried about the condition of your headphones rather than the amplifier.

I mean you could waste $2000 for amp but I don't see the point with HD600...

Burson Soloist SL (not the mk) has been given good reviews on pairing with the HD600 and HD650s. Used units can be around $300-350

I think the main concern would be so that you reach that 300 Ohm impendance so they get enough juice to hit all those freqs. There are lots of DAC/Amplifiers built in together too so maybe some used unit like that one would work too..

You can usually hear the breathing of pianists if the recording setup is good.

Here’s a strange one;
https://youtu.be/5BWOHlEyHcs
Go to 10:40 and listen very carefully.

Usually the most important parts of piano pieces (aside from the composition itself) is the way it’s played. The emotion that a pianist gives to a peice is all physical and that’s translated through various degrees of loudness. This is all a function of a pianist’s control over their playing. I bought these headphones specifically to listen to that.

So it is a thing, huh. Not that knowledgeable of classical, I just thought it sounded ridiculous considering the reviews where somewhat optimistic and I have a lot of skepticism when it comes to expensive hardware.

Well I don't blame you: at least your reasons are musically healthier than mine: I am addicted to some "imperfections" of the records I listen that are masked by lower end audio systems: get strange satisfaction when you finally hear some of the stuff you haven't heard before, something that perhaps was not supposed to be there...

OriGen (and OriGen G2) were found to have higher THD than specced for when analyzed by an independent analysis group. Plus it still has issues w/ drivers in Windows. Modi 3 + JDS Atom (Or Liquid Spark if you want nicer build quality for very very slightly different sound) is much closer to reasonably priced "endgame" because it's rare to have any issue with these two (despite what people say about Schiit, the Modi 3 is solid) and either of those amps can power damn near anything.
Also some people want open back headphones, to which the HD58X or HD6XX would be good (or an AKG offering depending on preference).
And what advantage does the MDR-CD900ST have over something like the MDR-V6 / MDR-7506? The latter are both about $100 cheaper.
>>
>>71391445
just buy a JDS Labs Atom and be done with amps forever (or a monoprice Liquid Spark if you want it faster, a metal construction and measures slightly worse but is sturdy and still sounds fantastic)
Both of these are $100 as well and have more than enough oomph to power the HD6XX. I just noticed another anon who mentioned the Atom & Liquid Spark and for good reason, they are both just too fuckin good for $100. And your DAC is fine.

it is actually audible retard. 120 is the limit of audibility for sinad. Everything lesser is audibly inferior. 100 is good enough for hifi and 110 is very good. 120 is the absolute limit of audibility. People who seek (perceivable) perfection will get it.

>>71395997
Why so angry because they're inventing better stuff? Every change I've ever made to my setup has had audible results. What's the price limit on improvement? To be honest, $3k for a setup that measures this well is a steal. Benchmark, Mytec, RME and Grace all make amazing gear around this price point that you can be proud to own. Sure a D30 sounds great for $200, but it's a cheap box that doesn't ooze high end. Of course you can also spend $130k on a DAC and $50k on a headphone amp. It might be better to someone. So if they can afford better than you they should be gassed? I'm just sorry you haven't heard better so you know it exists...

So around a couple of months ago, I purchased some tin t2 audios. They were great at first, but then the right side became quieter so I thought it was the cable that was broken. I recently purchased a new cable and tried them again, but now both sides are even quieter than before, I can't even hear them at max volume on my device. I cleaned the earwax off of them and everything so what's wrong?

Honestly these are great for the price, even the 10 dollar version of these are pretty great! Most earbuds have horrible muffling but these are pretty damn clear. The Jibs (cheaper ones) are also pretty great.

I somewhat do sympathize with headphone gear sluts: at least I believe them when they hear the difference

But check the 2nd guy in this video for example:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJJy6VJvSCk

What's the point of $100,000 monitors if you are using them in a small, acoustically untreated room?

Some "audiophiles", when compared to actual sound engineers etc. only stare at the technical details of the products and the scales: they do not understand how reflective surfaces play part in your setup, what are bass traps etc.

Of course, those who mainly use headphones for listening are in advance here: I might actually believe they DO hear the difference... but you get the point.

I would take the $500 monitors in a large room with acoustics rather than $10.000 monitors in a large room with NO acoustic treatment for my musical experience

Is it placebo or did I notice a change going from a DAC with just a line out 3.5mm -> L/R RCA to a DAC that's L/R RCA out?

Fiio e10k to Schiit modi3 -> O2 Amp

there are differences between dacs, they're not caused by 3.5mm vs rca though

Why the fuck stores do not have hardware they are selling on their respective sites? I have been buying some equipment past 3 days: 2 stores (some of them pretty close to I live)

>Sorry we do not have that, just a bit mistake on our site, would you like to buy this instead :)

>Sorry no, I rather order it from China because it is cheapier that way anyway.

No wonder all the (dedicated) hardware stores are going bankrupt to the China trade. Selling stuff you do not have. Only reason I would have bought from them is not to wait 2 weeks in postages

anyone have a Sennheiser GSX 1000 or 1200?
it seems a little overpriced, but the 1200 version has a niche use for me and my brother that no other dac/amp combo is going to have (the intercom link).
Curious how this thing sounds, reviews say the 7.1 simulation is good, but that it sucks for music/movies.

Yes. You should always use bluetooth headphones with bluetooth because these pieces of shit make heavy use of DSP to compensate for the shitty drivers and total lack of tuning. Ideally ditch bluetooth headphones and buy wired pair with a removable cable and plug a bluetooth adapter in it.

Knobs control them, toggled between by clicking down the knob.

I picked up one these NAD C326BEE integrated amp for a smoking deal (factory refurbished).

The thing is there is a popping/crackle in the right channel, maybe 5 or 6 pops. This only happens on a cold start. Once it's warmed up it doesn't do it anymore.

Is this something to be concerned about? It is a sign of things to come? I could still send it back. I know this isn't headphone related, but there's nowhere else to post.

You defeat it with Tone Direct. All integrated amps have those knobs, but you don't seem to understand. The problem doesn't have anything to do with a DAC. There is a right channel issue (some pops/cracks) in the amplifier that goes away after it's warmed up. Don't worry yourself about it, it's going back because I'm OCD.
