    Ingredients of Good Sound

    I’m still pretty new to high-end audio and the science behind it. I’ve learned a ton from Amir and others on these forums. When thinking about what exactly makes something sound “good”, I’ve made some interesting and counterintuitive discoveries during my own personal listening sessions over...

    Philips Fidelio X2HR Review (headphone)

    I agree that they must have production inconsistencies, or that perhaps the production was improved as time went on. I say this because I definitely haven’t heard any blown out bass or treble peaks like you describe. If anything, the bass seems more subdued than other headphones and could...

    I’m new to “hifi” also. I recently got a pair of Revel m106’s and I am extremely happy with them. They’re extremely clear and can get stupidly loud with zero distortion. They also have surprisingly fantastic bass as well. I would return those Focals and try the f206’s which I’m sure sound...
