A little constructive criticism / Thoughts

Id love to see you go into more detail in the mids and highs. While these are obviously bass centric headphones, I would like to know more about the weaker areas as well, to have a more detailed overall picture.

The pictures were great, well taken, and gave a good presentation.

These sentences made me cry.
"EQ'ing these headphones can really help improved the Mids and Highs greatly. After EQ'ing these headphones the Mids are more articulate and the Highs improved greatly."

They're kinda redundant.

The observations you made for DJing were very useful, and made a good point.

There you go, my unsolicited opinion. tongue.gif

Anyways, +Rep for the review, well done, i would just like a bit more detail in the actual musical characteristics and sound signature next time

Well, my Clip+ and Yuin Pk3's were just a tad short of where I wanted my portable setup to be. I ran the Yuin's through my E9 so I knew what they were capable of. I decided to splurge a whole $18 on an E5. We're not talking a huge difference here, but it did just enough to get the sound exactly where I wanted it. Bass is richer and the soundstage improved. These Pk3's can do wonders with vocals. $110 for the whole setup, I couldn't be happier. Portability took a hit, of course. It looks wacky but it fits in my pocket for exercising so it does the job. I also dropped $7.99 on a banana stand to hold my DT880's. And another $67 on Fostex T40RPs and will mod the heck out of em, pairing them with an O2 amp eventually. Supposedly the driver is top notch and they can sound hella good once modded. Should be a fun project.

I finished modding my T40RPs using info from this thread http://www.head-fi.org/t/452404/just-listened-to-some-fostex-t50rps-today-wow
The modding transforms these $67 orthodynamics into a viable mid-fi.
edit: these are past mid-fi and intruding into flagship territory.

Hey guys I have a quick question,

I just purchased a XONAR DG and I was wondering if I have to plug the HD AUDIO plug into to the sound card for the front panel headphone/mic jack to take effect of the sound card or could I just leave the HD AUDIO plug plugged into my motherboard.
