  1. Yeah the T60RP version looks great hey, plus the recommended suede pads look comfy as
  2. Got some Yaxi Pads for my Portapros and KSC75s on a Portapro headband. The comfort took a huge leap and the sound hasn't altered much. If anything is sounds more extended in both the bass and treble. I think it's a must have if you own a Portapro.
  3. AKG K7XX have a wide soundstage so maybe they will sound spacious to you? HD58X is a great option. Also, on a budget the Koss Portapro with Yaxi Pads is really comfortable and punches above its price range, they don't really require an amp which helps if you're on a budget, although they do scale with an amp. I absolutely love the HD6XX if you can stretch your budget to about $330
  4. I just noticed you're using a CD player so you might need a hardware EQ like a schiit Loki or a JDS labs subjective 3. Software EQ is really precise in eqing particular frequencies though.
  5. I personally don't EQ because i don't feel the need with the headphones I listen to, but hopefully here's a helpful video for you.
  6. Hi, I'm looking for a Bluetooth transmitter to connect to my TV for use with wireless headphones. Just wondering if anyone has experience with the Sennheiser BT-T100? Are there any other devices that you would suggest? Sennheiser is a familiar brand to me that's why I'm leaning towards it rather than a relatively unknown brand.

  7. Item: Creative Aurvana Live! CAL! Biodynamic Headphones Location: Ulladulla, NSW, 2539 Price: $69 $49 + free postage ($99 RRP) Item Condition: Brand New Reason for selling: Doesn't provide the noise isolation that I am after. Payment Method: Postage - Bank Transfer - PayPal Extra Info: I recently purchased these directly from Creative AUS and was hoping to use these as closed backs to isolate myself from ambient noise in the house. As they isolate, but not enough to my needs I've decided to move them on. I listened to them for 2 hours after I received them yesterday and have decided to move them on, apart from that they are brand new. They still have a one year warranty and I can provide the receipt if needed. The CAL! uses the Foster (parent company of Fostex) 443741 driver that was in the Denon AH-D1001. Being a biodynamic driver it is a punchy little headphone with a slightly elevated mid-bass that can still reach down into sub-bass. For a budget headphone it's quite impressive and is fun for EDM and Hip-Hop. It has great imaging and even though it is closed back I was tricked into thinking that there was a sound in the room coming from behind me, when it was actually a hidden noise on the track that I was listening to. It's also fairly well resolving for the price range. In short, it punches well above its price range but doesn't suit my needs so I'm regretfully moving it on. Feel free to ask any questions.

  8. Watch from 6:10 I would personally use books because I would be worried that I would apply different levels of pressure to different points of the metal headband if you do it by hand so it would not be evenly stretched. If you use books its an even pressure, just don't over do it and be patient and give it time to wear in so it doesnt crack the plastic. Also, rest assured sennheiser have really good replacement parts for all parts of the HD6XX so if you snap a headband or whatever you can always get a replacement part if you're worried about that. A downside of using books is that it'll wear your pads in quicker but like I said you can always get replacements.
  9. Hey just try stretching it out over some books. If not the Massdrop K7XX had a loose clamp force
  10. That sounds like a great setup. Because I'm on a tight budget I currently use a 103 as a dac to my headamp for movies and I also use the hdmi in for my games consoles. It sounds great to my ears but I'm considering using a Topping D30 connected to my 103 or alternatively I have been considering connecting it to my TV. Not sure which setup to go with.
  11. I've done alot of research and currently use an oppo, thanks for sharing the link
  12. Actually I recently looked into the AKG K371, that might be of some interest to you. Quality control is an issue though. I was also looking at the Etymotic ER2XR, but that is an item.
