I'm actually considering boutin Creative Aurvana Live Headphones for gaming and music, and been told that it doesn't make sense to buy these without a proper DAC (it was in a YT video so it might be bs). Is it true and what is a sensible price to buy this device for? I'm from Eastern Europe and even though I'm not too poor, I don't want to blow a shitload of cash on it.
What are some open-back alternatives to something like MDR-V6's (what I currently own) that are in about the same price range ($80-120)?
Are AKG K240's good? What's the difference between the MK 2 K240's and ordinary one?
I have a year old pair of 250ohm DT 770's with a detachable cable mod and swapped out 250 drivers for 80ohm drivers the other day since I fucked up the 250's modding the cable and I had bought 80ohm cans from Guitar Center to steal the drivers and ear pads. They are decent, but I'd like a NEW pair of 250's. Returned the 80ohm headphones back to Guitar Center for a full refund -$18 tax. But paying $18 for 80ohm drivers isn't so bad I guess.
Order a new pair of 250ohm DT 770's from Amazon, swap out the good pair for my old ones (With the original coiled cable attached), and return them for full price claiming it was a false purchase.
I'd only spend how ever much it is to ship them back to Amazon.
Would this work? How well does Amazon check their returned shit so much that they dissemble the headphones to see the insides? I doubt it.
I just got HD650's and Dragonfly 2.0 (only [paid 70 for it)
Right now the cans are directly plugged in the Dragonfly is it true though I can some kind of external amp to make them louder?
I tried using my 25 year old Onkyo but I think it's starting to go bad cuz I get major crackling noises.
I wanna spend around a $100
So, /g/, I'm curious, how's the AKG situation? i read multiple times that they're pretty good and pretty neutral, which is something I'd like in contrast to my DT770. But I also read that quality of AKG went downhill somewhat because they started outsourcing their manufacturing or something.
At particular, I looked at the K272 (a bit expensive for my tastes, is it worth it?), K612 & K551. The latter two are extremely cheap in Germoney so I'm somewhat tempted. The K551 say something about microphone and Apple controls, so that scares me off somewhat. I would like some
I'm curious, how different are these from the V6? I got a pair of V6 and am just wondering whether I should treasure them like a newborn or if they're easily replaced by a pair of 7506?
You'd be fine with even a $60-70 DAC (price of decent parts and reasonable build quality). Anything beyond that is just placebo. Or you could listen to shills that honestly believe there's a difference in sound between a $1000 DAC and a $60 one.
What's a good headamp dac combo? I don't plan to use USB interface on the DAC, not a fan of proprietary drivers or finnicky USB audio in general.
So, I got myself a pair of DT880, the 250 ohm version. If I plug them directly into my motherboard I can get them to ear-bleeding high volume levels, usually, in Windows I usually stick to ~35% volume. Would I still profit from an amp and/or dac?
MDR-7506 -> MDR-V6 -> MDR-7510 -> MDR-1R MDR-7520 -> MDR-1A -> MDR-Z7
Also from 7506 to 7510, not too hard make same:
An earphones guide that is less out of date than the one that constantly gets posted. Comments appreciated.
There's a lot difference between the v6/7506 and the 1R and Z7.
I have MDR-V6 and got MDR-7506 for xmas. They sound a lot more different than I thought. I honestly thought I would not be able to tell just for being a retarded. But, I got the velour pads, the soft kind not the plastic shit, when it came apart.
Do the pads effect the sound at all? I rather just wait untill these pads start to come apart cos i'm jewish
also I can never find the pads on amazon, and it's no longer in my order history. a nice anon once linked me to a soft ones and sheepskin ones. if i find them i will link, still looking.
no, normal amps take up space and the resolution improved compared to my previous setup
i had a denon pma520 and pro-ject usb box s before
the maia all in one amp is great for my needs
It's so sad people don't post their setup more often.
How do you like the X2's?
i had x1 before. they broke on me on the hinge and i sent them in for guarantee repair. X2 came back, man i was happy as fuck.
other than that, it really is noticably improved, soundwise and builtwise
but the downside on the hinge still remains, it's a plastic screw which is connecting the cups to the frame
other than that, it's a really great headphone, just don't drop it ^^
the cable is from amazon:
You can buy MDR-Z7 ￥42000-45000(about $320 - 350 from japan) but sadly I can't find at this momet cheap than 49000 http://kakaku.com/item/K0000698868/ is it little over your buget?
Ok, I'll post my poorfag setup.
No noise at max volume, btw
What does everyone think of Marley headphones? I like their construction with wood casings and fabric but I'm not sure they're the best bang for my buck. After all, audio quality is the most important thing when it comes to headphones.
Anyone own them or try them out?
The people with actually good setups tend not to post because these threads are generally shit.

neutral, with good soundstaging
what would be best upgrade?, currently have Shure SRH440
1. Audio-Technica ATH-M50x
2. Sennheiser HD 598 Over-Ear Headphones
3. Sennheiser HD 558
problem with current headphones is volume is low even at MAX.
I need a pair of bluetooth headphones for the gf. Refuse to buy shitty beats or skullcandy, but running out of options with it this close to the holidays. Don't mind something showing up after, I just want to make sure they aren't fucking pathetic.
