Audiophile Thread



  • So I’ve been getting into the hi-fi scene a bit, just recently bought a pair of earphones called the VSonic GR07 based on numerous recommendations on the head-fi forums.

    I was curious as to what types of headphones/earphones/DACs/etc you guys might own. No judgment pls.



  • Audio Technica ATH-M50’s

    great cans for not that much $$



  • Sennheiser HD 555
    bit pricey if not on sale
    good quality for the price though



  • Sennheiser HD 515’s because they were cheap. Need a new pair soon though… they’re kinda falling apart.

    Mmm I have heard a lot of good things about these. Was considering picking up these instead of the gr07’s, but decided that earphones would be more versatile for my lifestyle atm

    Good old sennheisers, I’ve never heard of 555’s or 515’s before though. Interesting to see that so far there is a lack of mainstream audio products like razer kraken/logitech g–/etc being listed. I wasn’t expecting much from the gamer crowd. Then again, this is technically an indie game.

    I actually use Astro A40’s for gaming though(quite a ‘gamer’ brand). Overpriced as shite but it’s pretty solid I’d say. Prevents me from being that guy on CSGO who can’t hear the guy behind him who is brandishing a knife.



  • i use a shitty 60 dollar pantronics headset



  • Generic apple earphones that came with the phone.

    I currently use the Logitech G230 for my headset though. They do alright I can hear everything I need to hear. Didn’t have a filter on the microphone so I stuck on the microphone filter from my old headset so I don’t kill everyone’s ears with my mic exploding. My old headset which was some cheap Microsoft LX-3500 or something was 100% bass. That’s all it was. Amazing microphone though. Which I broke by running it over with my office chair.

  • sennheiser hd202 on my desktop plus a shitty generic clip-on mic

    akg Y50 when I go outside



  • I use a headset, it works.



  • Audiotechnica ATH-AD700 headphones. I mainly use these at the PC now for gaming, youtube etc. I’ve got a HRT musicstreamer II DAC but I don’t use it anymore.

    for music and movies I use my stereo. Marantz PM6004 integrated amp, CD6005 CD player. local brand Aaron ATS-3 floorstanding speakers.

    Hey I use the same headphones! Only ones I own that I can stand wearing for any length of time, sits around your ears instead of directly on them. Really comfy and good sound too.



  • ^^ one of the main reasons I’ve been buying Sennheisers for ages. They’re so damn comfy.



  • Sound Blaster Z Sound card to a Sennheiser PC360 Headset.

    I tried many different headphones but none of them compare to the sound, quality, and comfort Sennheiser’s give.
