    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    For sale is an excellent sounding pair of Dan Clark's flagship Ether 2 headphones, $1,400 net to me, available only because I'm finally moving to a Raal system. These are extremely good sounding planer-magnetic headphones, one of the most lightweight and comfortable headphones made today; for under $3K I haven't heard anything I like nearly as well. Superior condition; I have a bit of tinnitus and listen at low to medium volumes so these have not been taxed at all. The second headphone cable is slightly different, not necessarily better, than the black DUM cable Dan Clark designed specifically for the Ether 2s; for $500 more you can do better but both these cables sound really good; it just depends on your tastes and what type music you are listening to. For a detailed description and more photos, you can go here to view my listing on Head-Fi. In addition, I have a Pass Labs HPA-1 amplifier/pre-amp for sale; really versatile and also in superior condition, view detailed listing here.

    1,400.00 USD

  3. Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere, but my question is fairly simple. Here is my setup: - iMac 27" 5K 2015 with mostly lossless music (ALAC) on iTunes/Audirvana; - Marantz HD-DAC1 DAC; - Denon DRA-F109 amp/receiver (connected to B&W stereo speakers and Planar turntable). I am about to purchase new (most probably open back) headphones, probably the Beyerdynamic DT-1990, or the closed back B&W P9. I could not find the exact answer on Google, so here it is: WHERE should I plug my wired headphones, particularly if they are of high im
  4. Giant Killer Headphones? Please list the models you think fits this phrase?
  5. I enjoy listening to music rather loudly and that holds especially true when I plug my headphones into my amplifier. I currently have Bowers and Wilkins P7 headphones. While absolutely spectacular, they distort when I push them to the volumes I'd like to listen at. I wonder if there are headphones that are particularly adept at blasting out rock and roll at volumes that will lead to hearing loss. Please advise based on the relevance of the headphone, disregard price. Thanks one and all.
  6. Good Morning Everyone: Let's just say that I have a friend who has moved into a shared housing situation, and he wants to have a high quality high-end audio rig, but he's not allowed to have any loudspeakers on the premises. He wants an analog, computer based nas, and dac based headphone rig. He has an overall budget of about $2K to about $4K. What would you suggest?? I suggested the following: Headphones -- Sennheiser HD-650 Preamplifier -- NAD (any model... used.... I suggested a preamplifier because the preamplifier has a headphone amplifier and a phono stage built-in, minimizes sp
  7. Greetings Audiophiles! Having not been able to find what I want through my own research online, I have come seeking recommendations from those in the know. This is the first forum I came across. I'm guessing you are mostly US-based judging by the default timezone it wanted to use? In which case, greetings from the UK :-) Many years ago, while I was studying at University I used to have a PC that had a Soundblaster card with a breakout box. It was particularly useful for inputting midi and a mic and monitoring with headphones. Now, in the coming months I will be doing a new PC build
  8. I use wi-fi speakers with sound from my computer or NAS. Is there any news of headphone manufacturers releasing 2.4MHz or 5MHz wi-fi versions? Ian
  9. OPPO was "nice" enough to post a peek into what they are working on at the OPPO Digital Future Products page. I think they would like people to be aware of it as they apparently can't pull it in before the holiday season and hope some fan base to hold off of purchases from other vendors by posting the planned hardware. And that is my question. I may be considering exactly this new combo (DAC+AMP+HF) for the holiday season in up to the 2.5K range. What would be an (un)educated guess of this respectable community - has OPPO a chance to best current offerings and so the wait is warranted?
  10. Its official. The Z1R is awesome!
  11. I have PC which I built for both gaming and music listening purposes. For headphones, I have two pairs of the Audio Technica ATH-M50X for music and Logitech G430 for gaming. I am currently shopping for a sound card and 2.1 desktop speaker solution for my computer. For the sound card I need it to handle surround sound in gaming, do well with music listening and have proper shielding from electrical and electronic interference. I listen to film score, classical, new age, electronic, rock, and pop music. I am currently leaning toward the Creative Sound Blaster ZXR, but I am open
  12. So honestly when it comes to hi-fi headphones I'm actually pretty inexperienced and don't really know what I'm doing, anyways I got a pair of HD650s for Christmas and have been using a little Fiio portable amp for them but I know it's not nearly good enough and want to upgrade for better sound quality. The only problem is I have no idea what to get. I know I don't want to spend over $500, but I don't know if I should get a tube amp and DAC, just a tube amp, or an amp/DAC combo thing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  13. Finally got a hold of pair of these and must say they are a worthy upgrade, although, it probably won't be as significant of a difference to those who have not owned or experienced the original HD800. The build quality, I feel is better - partially due to the black, I just think it will be less prone to paint chipping. It almost looked like rubber at first. It fits slightly different than the original. Secondly, it comes with both standard 1/4" cable and 4-pin balanced XLR cable. Now that is something that every company should do. Sonically, for those that felt the HD800s were t
  14. I live in the Denver area. I have three hi end stores and between them they carry HD800, Nighthawks, and Audeze and that's all. I'd love to hear or buy locally the HiFiMan 560, Mr Speaker Ether and the Oppos. Most Denver stores don't carry headphones at all. I'm reluctant to spend more then $1000 on something I've never even heard. There threads are full of audiophiles talking up these brands. Do you all live in NYC?
  15. I would like to upgrade the (detachable) cable on my AKG K7XXs with something shorter than the standard 10 foot cable that came with them. I probably only need 4 to 6 feet. It has the AKG three pin connector. I looked online and their a quite a few available on Amazon, etc. Anything in particular I should consider for these particular headphones? (62 ohms) Any suggestions based on experience to help me narrow down the choices. I don't think I want to spend more than about $75 (it looks like there are quite a few well below that - but again, looking for something tried and true).

Dharma D1000 Hybrid Electrostatic Stereo Headphones ($1190) – NOW SHIPPING "Dharma D1000 has a realistic and trustworthy soundstage that competes with the best of them...The soundstage is large and in charge. Each time I shut off the surrounding world and found time to enjoy a dedicated listening session, I found myself enveloped and immersed in the sound signature, and was pleasantly surprised to see how capable the Dharma was at taking on all of the music genres that I could throw at it, and how incredibly at-ease it was, in co-existing with any source material and component that I

  18. Hello everyone! I have been trying to piece together a setup to output to two HQ headphones simultaneously on my PC and have been struggling to find the correct solution. Basically i want to be able to be playing a game, enjoying great audio while being able to offer a friend the same audio experience. I do a lot of co-op working as well where we would be listening to music while working, and it would be nice to be enjoying the same song at a HQ level. Not to mention Co-Op Oculus gaming The headsets i have had my sights on are these: http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-Performance-Su
  19. I am very surprised by the lack of discussion RE: STAX headphones. So many people discuss Sennheiser HD-800's, Beyer and Audeze. But, when I heard an "entry level" STAX 2170 ($895) system at a www.hifiheadphones.ca location in Canada compared to all of the other top models I was shocked! To me the sound was sooo much more "HiFi" with the STAX, more open, uncompressed and the bass was had the best tone and definition by far. And that was just the start. Each model represented a significant improvement over the next all the way up to the SR-009 model. Is it just me? Are there just ve

They have an amazing selection and ship for FREE. I wanted to pass this code along here to the CA members if you are looking for anything new, promo code: KHM55OR1MH67 Enjoy:)
  21. I am in the market for a new set of headphones. Now, I am not a full audio expert, so I am going to use pretty much plain English for my requirements. I am looking to replace my Audio Technica ATH-M50X with something else. I will be using the headphones with my iPhone 8 Plus, iPad Pro, and PC using a Creative Sound Blaster ZXR sound card. I am looking for around-the-ear closed-back headphones (studio, DJ, home, I am not specific on the type.), works with various genres of music (classical, new age, rock, pop, dance, etc.) and priced somewhere between $100 and $200. I recently
  22. I am looking for a new pair of headphones and I am confused with either going with the audiotechnica ath m50x or the Harman Kardon HARKAR-NC. Some might say the HK is more priced but funny enough they both are $180 at amazon.in I mostly listen to Metal/Hard rock also anything thats good
  23. We recently conducted some controlled double-blind listening tests and measurements on six popular headphones to study the relationship between perception and measurement of headphone sound quality. The question we posed was can listeners agree on what headphones they prefer based on sound quality? And can their headphone preferences be predicted based on a set of objective measurements? I've post a summary of the paper with a link to the slides we presented at the recent AES Convention: Audio Musings by Sean Olive: The Relationship between Perception and Measurement of Headphone Soun
  24. I've been looking around for about 2 months and I've come up with some good suggestions to what I could get, but I'm not completely sure yet ofc. Idk if it affects anything but i mostly game when using headphones I've been looking at the AT2020 for the microphone (XLR version), and maybe the Scarlett 2i2 with it. Then I've looked at many headphones and can't come up with anything, i know i like some bass (but that is also the only I've ever heard from headphones other than cheap earplugs) PS. I dont have a specific budget, and if you have any other suggestions please le
  25. I cannot find a way to stream music using my Teufel Raumfeld app to my headphones. Android devices allow streaming from router to Wi-Fi speakers but not streaming to the Android device for 3.5mm wired headphones. I guess that Bluetooth headphones would also not work when streaming?
