    Is there any difference between the LCD-24 and LCD-X 2021 after are both equed to the Harman Curve?

    Hi all, does anyone of you have experience with both the lcd-x and lcd-24? I was in the market for an LCD-X, I have an HD800s which I EQ to the Harman target and its almost perfect, but I find the sub bass around 30 hz to be insufficient even after eq. I did a tone test with a sine wave at 30...

    Upgrade Sennheiser HD 650s to Planars for mixing/mastering work?

    Hey all! Been a lurker in here forever. Had a question for all of you. I only use headphones occasionally for mixing/mastering work when I'm on the road. I currently use Sennheiser HD 650s with sonarworks to correct the EQ. But I see myself using headphones more and more in the near future...

    Headphones : Experience Beyond Sound

    With a lot of headphones these days, QoL features have made them far more than just a casing for drivers. ANC, Touch Controls, Wireless, Multi-Device Playback, Spatial Audio, Folding Mechanism, Detachable Cable, Swivel and such. I believe that for headphones to evolve further as devices that...

    Building a perfect headphone system.

    Hello fellow ASR members, I'm looking for advice with respect to building a headphone system. Although my Activo DAP sounds good, I want to build a "reference" headphone system so I can easily quantify (at least subjectively) different headphones as I buy more in the future, based on perceived...

    Headphones that are fun and forgiving?

    Hi I’m in the market for a fun headphone to pair with my HD 560s, something that is warm bassy with smooth trebles, that makes poorly mixed songs more enjoyable to listen to. Meze 99 seems to be everyone’s number one choice, similar cans I can think of is the dt 177x and 700 pro x , if anyone...

    The best headphone for EQ

    Here at ASR we're pretty EQ-crazy. That's perfectly valid, since EQ is just another link on the chain to make music sound more natural and enjoyable. So what is the best "EQ-ready" headphone? If we consider some notes Oratory1990 has made on this topic (excerpt from this comment), we gain an...

    Shure SRH440A and SRH840A

    Shure has released some updates to their classic studio staples, the SRH440 and SRH840. The new models have an "A" at the end. Looks like they have an entirely redesigned build and comfort, which is great news for those familiar with the old pairs (especially the 440). Also, no more coiled...

    Wanting to buy better headphones

    I currently use the m50x, they sound ok but not very impressive. I don't exactly know my preference in the tuning. But I like how the 7hz timeless sounds, same with Mangird tea's. I know that headphones don't sound the same as iems but i like tuning of them. I mostly listen to rap. I prefer them...

This is pretty much near final except for I don't think the headband is perfected. I don't have a GRAS to measure, but they sound decent to me. I have a simpler version where...

    Hi, I wanted to know you opinion on cutting frequencies below 20 Hz, I saw a lot of speakers that have small woofer that doesn't extend well past 50-60Hz, but that's not the case with headphones, with many reviews recommending equalization of bass to Harman target and even with linear bass...
