Instead a FOSTEX 6301B. The ones that sound like god whispering in your ear Originally Posted by dustydust the fourth dimensions fucking confusing. A little under $300, open-backed (so they leak sound like crazy but sound so much clearer for it), bass is really deep (down to 5hz) but not prominent so they really I have checked out the AskMe questions about headphones and the various recommended links (like this one) but I haven’t found anything that really jumps out at me just yet.

If this is your first visit to our community, please familiarize yourself with the all content in this sidebar - as it will make your stay more pleasant. Many computer audio inputs don't like to see a DC bias voltage on their input. No Dynamic punch, bass or treble. However they are hard to drive and you'll need an amp.

By the way, what is your opinion of the magnaplanar type, and of the HE-400i, if any? September 27, 2012 Why so much leakage? I will report on the Pangea HP 201 performance once it's up and running. I also restarted the scanner, restarted the computer, swapped out the USBpre2, and connected audio to internal sound interface instead, all with no improvement.

I can't game knowing that this is happening. :(   Any ideeas ?   Thank you. I listen to a wide variety of alternative rock (Radiohead, Mars Volta, Rage Against the Machine, etc) as well as some classic rock and more “ambient” rock (M83, Sparklehorse, Mercury Rev, The output of the phone jack is monaural, but you will hear it in both headphones of a stereo headset. It’s a great value and no slouch vs the higher ups in the line.

Regrettably, the sound I get from the Sennheiser leaves much to be desired, at least to my ears. Although, The Grado SR60 is probably the best set of headphones for under $100 they're open so don't meet your subway requirement but I freaking love them. I work for a company that tests headphones, so please excuse the shameless self publicity of a link to, which writes long reviews of headphones.posted by baggers at 6:22 AM Maybe it's time to order an audio isolation transformer. #11 (permalink) 09-21-2014, 9:14 PM fxdscon Member Join Date: Jan 2007 Posts: 3,147 Quote: Originally Posted by dhoffman83

They boast specifically of it essentially being a double-mono design, with separate transformers and whatnot for every channel, plus separate power supplies for pre- and power sections, which is great, I

Should I perhaps get a dedicated headphone amp? That's not bulky at all, if anything you're more likely to have problems losing the thing than trying to transport it. It also doesn't explain why the inverted signal wasn't there to begin with.

It all sounds fine to me on these headphones.

P.S. The key phrase is "you will hear it in both headphones of a stereo headset". For headphone listening, the dedicated headphone amp is superior to the padded down design from the power amp section. They sound a lot better than they look and, most importantly, FIT.

Headphones work well to determine certain Stereophonics spatial balances. It's actually better if I only connect tip and no sleeve...
