    What Headphones do not need (or scream for) EQ?

    Which media player for music files ?

    CDs---Grampa's relics?

    I've donated a lot of my cds to Goodwill or Salvation Army. Let them figure out what to do with them. I tried to get back into cds but taking them out of the case, putting the disc in a drive and listening to music that way feels slow and weird.

    Sennheiser Launches HD 400 Pro Headphones for Mixing and Mastering

    My guess is it's the 560s with the little high frequency deviation from the harman target removed so that it's entirely more in line with the target. Some people perceive the 560s as slightly hot because of that little deviation.
