    Dan Clark Audio AEON RT Review (closed headphone)

    One of the main criticism I see on reddit and other forums about Dan Clark headphone is that while they are tonally great they are somewhat lacking in dynamics/impact/slam. Did you get any feeling of that on this headphone? This complaint is mainly targeted at the older ether/aeon though so...

    What headphones would you like Amir to measure next?

    Don't know if anyone has mentioned this headphone yet but I would like to see how the Borealis headphone performs on Amir's test bench. This headphone was very polarizing when it came out. People saying it was a rip off because of the parts/materials being used in the build while costing $900...

    NAD Viso HP50 Review (headphone)

    There was an interesting short video from InnerFidelity about these headphones, and the whole philosophy behind designing them. I don't know if what was said holds any merit though.

    Beyerdynamic DT990 Edition vs Hifiman HE400

    Is there anyway you can get your hands on a AKG K7XX? Generally the K7XX bass extends a bit better than the HD6X0 and have a wider soundstage, but is not as even/smooth as the HD6X0.

    Beyerdynamic DT990 Edition vs Hifiman HE400

    Wait is this the HE-400 or HE-400i? The original 400 sounds a lot different than the 400i, much more impact in the bass but kinda funky from the mids-treble.

    Does HD650 have better driver matching than 600?

    Have you ever measured a 6XX? And does it hold the same tolerance?

    Seeking Recommendation of Flat, High-Isolation Cans

    There's always the good ole Sennheiser HD280 Pro, which claims "up to 32 dB attenuation of outside sound" But I've never personally test/heard them.

    [Topping] DX3 Pro coming soon

    Is the volume knob digital? If not then there should be some obvious marking on the knob for position.

    Looking for an Amp/DAC that can make the HD650/HD6xx sound good

    Amir actually measured it a while ago

    New Alex Cavalli Liquid Platinum and Spark Amps at Monoprice

    I agree with the headphone part, I usually just lurk SBAF with no account. I feel they're usually pretty spot on with the subjective descriptions headphone (except maybe any treble that's not from HD600/650 being murderous). They know exactly what kind of sound signature they like and can pick...

    Which DAC measurements do you like to see next?

    Looks like they are merging the FiiO E10k and the Q1 MkII together. The DAC probably got some improvements and now has DSD support and USB-C. Shame that single-ended...

    Klipsch Heritage Headphone Amplifier

    Yet another TI TPA6120A2 based amplifier, so it probably has an output impedance of 10 ohms. Not bad for the price actually for the amount of I/O and functionality, plus the variable preamp for powered monitors.

    Modi 3 release with measurements from Schiit The most interesting part is that they posted measurement results using a APx555. Obviously would be great to see if Amir can confirm those...

    What headphone(s) do you own ?

    ATH-M30X, sounded alright for the price, gave to my sister. NVX XPT100, decent sound-stage for closed, kinda shouty. Modded it to reduce shout and deepened the bass and currently using it at work. VE Monk, probably my favorite to wear and just forget about, sounds ok. Hifiman 400i (No...

    Not sure if someone already requested this, but the solid state amp from Garage1217 look really interesting.

    Review and Measurements of Topping A30 and Schiit Magni 3 Headphone Amps

    Has anyone sent Amir a FiiO K5? Would love to see a comparison between these two and the K5 since it's in the same price range. FiiO's E10K did alright for what it cost.

    Review and Measurements of Topping A30 and Schiit Magni 3 Headphone Amps

    Nice review and measurements as always. I've seen some people change the opamp on the A30 with some of the ones that Burson sells. Wonder what changes that could make.

    Fixing Hum/Buzz issues with Schiit Jotunheim Headphone Amplifier

    Jason acknowledging this problem is a nice step forward in "working" relationship. I've always personally thought the goal of Amir's testing (especially Schiit products) is to help manufacturers improve their products with third party testing/a different perspective. I am just afraid that this...
