Digital Coaxial carries a SPDIF signal. I've used it myself and many others use it successfully.
Carries or can carry?

Can carry, they can be used as phono cables for analog signals too. The same can be true in reverse, some phono cables will carry a SPDIF signal but the SPDIF standard states a 75OHm cable should be used.

Hey guys, im currently looking for some headphones to buy. I have the dr. Dre studios, Tours and bose AE2 and i had the ae1. i love the dr dre because of the base, im kind of a bass head. i love the ae2 because of the sq in the mid and highs.

is there any headphones with bass like the dr. dre studios and clarity in the mids and highs like the bose ae2? will buy asap.

also i was looking on buying the bose qc15, are they worth it based on my likings which you already know with the info above?

Any of the high-end beyerdynamics are known for their excellent bass (not just loud, but accurate) and will blow the beats away. I've listened to both btw, i'm not just recommending a product that i own.

Do you have an amplifier?

I bought a portable headphone amp and i'll be honest, i barely use it anymore.

If you don't have a very strong amp i'd recommend buying a pair of low-resistance headphones. I know beyer do an 80 ohm version of mine (DT770) which are supposed to be easier to drive.

Sadly i've only ever owned 3 pairs of headphones, so i can't tell you much other than the Beyerdynamics have excellent bass.

i mean, the amp is not that bad lol. i think it could amp the headphones fairly well. which are the ones you have? i'll buy them from amazon and if they are not to my likings return them and look for others .....do they leak noise a lot?

I have the older (last year i think) DT770 Pro 250 ohm. They're too quiet to use with my ipod but they're incredible with my amp.


They don't leak a lot of noise because they're a closed design. They're also comfortable to wear.

Amazon.com: Beyerdynamic DT 770-PRO Headphones: Electronics

Thanks for the help again lol just ordered these and +rep as well
