Just bought a pair of ATH-M50-S-LE yesterday, they'll be 'hear' Tuesday. Got the Modded HD555s for movies and tv and the M50s for my senseless taste in punchy bass techno and for just private listening at night when the monitors aren't needed

Been listening to my Corsair Vengeance 2000 headset review sample for 2 days now. They really don't sound bad at all. Sounds much better than the rest of their headset line up.

Review to be posted in a day or so.

Man, I read a post a couple weeks ago here about FLAC format songs. Thought I may as well redownload some stuff in FLAC format even though I can't hear a difference, but after a couple weeks of listening, my old 320kbps MP3s sound like crap thumb.gif

Placebo, all things cet. par.

Lossless is mainly for file integrity reasons (important for things such as file transcoding) + FLAC for it's tagging capabilities, greater compression (say over the likes of WAV) and royalty free use and with the cheapness of fast broadband internet connections and digital data storage, it isn't an issue like it was in the past.

Try an ABX test (foobar2000 has a plugin) and see if you can still notice the difference. wink.gif

I have a pair of Sony MDR F1 headphones that are very rare these days. I Bought it several years ago and have used them ever since for movies and gaming. I have tried other "high end" headphones and always come back to the comfort and sound of the MDR F1. Yesterday I decided to dust off an AKG Hero 999II that I had been given as a gift some years ago and never used (the wireless feature was just not needed). Since it is a preamp/dac with built in headphone amp I thought I would connect it via my digital out and see how it works with the Sony headphones. After a little fiddling with the settings I sat back to listen to a movie. Honestly I was not prepared for the amazing sound through the Hero. I know these Sony headphones well having used them for years, but they were reborn when played through the AKG preamp/dac. Yes it has a built in headphone amp and what a job it does! Vintage equipment I know, but what beautiful sound! Perhaps this might qualify me for this club?
