I guess you'd need to read his posts to know what he does then :p

Re: Same old song over at Head-Fi....

Just because it's hard doesn't mean we can say it's not measurable though.

BTW, doesn't nwavguy measure the amp's performance driving a range of headphones?

Re: Same old song over at Head-Fi....

Actually, I reckon if you measured the brain response you would see a difference between the two. If we feel it differently, the reality is that there *is* is physiological difference.

Whether the tools are sensitive enough to register the difference is another argument.

Same re the cups, although my ear semi-folds to fit inside. That sounds less comfortable than it is :)

Why didn't anyone tell me how good the DT250 are?

OK, so maybe it has been mentioned once or twice. Maybe. But damn, these things are great. I'm completely in love. Quite a lot like the 531 (which I still have to fix :(), but closed, which makes them completely awesome for work. Only downside is now I'm not sure what I'll use my (also recently purc...

Re: Is your playlist on Shuffle?

Polling seems broken.

I listen to whole albums mostly. The vast majority of my music sounds better that way. When I had an iPhone I'd let Genius pick stuff sometimes - it usually did a good job.

Re: ~$100 canalphones for everyday use

I've never used canalphones that don't have a microphonic cable. So far, these are the least microphonic, but I haven't heard the VSonics.

Re: ~$100 canalphones for everyday use

I've only just got them, but I'd recommend the M3. They sound excellent, are comfortable, and have ear clip things that will help reduce microphonics (the thumping sound).

I was going to apply for Official Beyer Whore status, but I think I've been outdone.

Re: Travel headphones

.. and I think you'll recall from that thread that I said I was pulling that number completely out of my subjective arse :-) The Pros are certainly better at everything. Better enough that to me they're worth 5x price tag. But I use the 1s at work all the time and never feel like they let me down vs...

Re: What have you just bought?

Brainwavz M3s and DT250s just arrived :D Really impressed with the quality and accessories for the M3 - nice carry case, tips and over-ear-hook things, and the cable seems like it'll last. Oh, and they sound pretty damn nice too. I need more time with them but initial impression is *very* positive. ...

Re: Same old song over at Head-Fi....

BTW, for those of you with the skill to understand/critique amp design, his is up: http://nwavguy.blogspot.com/ He reckons it'll cost somewhere around $100 to build and have enough voltage to drive DT880s and enough current to drive HE-6s. Interested to hear what the more knowledgeable folk think. Ben
