    Behringer DEQ2496 Ultracurve Pro DSP Review

    Oh man, I had one of these years ago and loved it. I used mine to store my Sennheiser HD-600 EQ curve -- instant sound improvement with every source and amp!

    Audioholics goes off the reservation

    FWIW (anecdotal evidence alert!), I'm very happy with a ~$50 Auralex Subdude isolation pad purchased years ago. I did not do this to improve sound quality or "lift a veil" or any other "magic." Instead, I did it because my subwoofer rattled objects in my room. See, we have a wood floor and a...

    Looking for a suitable amp recommendation, and maybe a DAC?

    Hi, Aerizon! I've been where you are, and I commend you for not hanging on to tons of gear or collecting. You're smart. My first recommendation would be to EQ your Senns. You'll find a huge difference by doing that. I'm using Sonarworks, but you can check around -- there are some great free EQ...

    Upgraditis and where I am today

    I forgot one important thing: If you've lost hearing, stop being stubborn and get hearing aids. Nobody cares that you're wearing them... but they *do* care if you can't hear them. Trust me; I know from years of experience. I've tried countless audio gear, but since losing hearing, nothing has...

    Anybody here using hearing aids?

    I should also add that I barely use my Etymotic ER-4S these days, and my audiologist didn't know how to EQ them for the ear with hearing loss.

    Anybody here using hearing aids?

    I wear a hearing aid to compensate for mild to moderate loss in one ear. Put off getting a hearing aid for years because I was "too young." During those years, I listened to a few dozen hours of music. Now, I put my hearing aid in when I wake up and take it out only when I shower and sleep...

    Upgraditis and where I am today

    Great post, Kevbaz. I sympathize. My first pair of good headphones was a revelation, and I listened to music for 1-2 hours every night in high school. Then: I fell deep into the upgraditis rabbit hole when I was in college. At one time, I owned more headphones than I could even listen to: *...

    Any known sales for Senn HD 600 on Black Friday or Cyber Monday?

    For what it's worth, I got a great deal on my Sennheiser HD-600s back in 2003 -- I paid $200 ($300 in today's money). Drop's deal is cheaper, even excluding inflation. And after listening for thousands of hours, I'd say $179 is a good deal. :)
