    AudioQuest Announces NightHawk Headphones

    Bio-cellulose drivers are not leather. They are used in a few of the headphones for quite some time already, Fostex TH900, Denon D1001 for example. I am not personally fond of the sound, don't think that many heard it are either.

    AudioQuest Announces NightHawk Headphones

    These are one of the cheaper headphones in the market already. ;) Aimed at different markets.

    AudioQuest Announces NightHawk Headphones

    Wasn't that announced quite a few months ago? I heard it in May-ish already. :confused:

    Feenix Unveils the Aria Gaming Headset

    Not exactly a headset, as much as a headset as my pair of STAX in fact. $350 can get you pretty damn good headphones if willing to go second hand. They are walking right into the "proper headphones" territory. If one runs it with onboard soundcard, mostly likely will be sourly disappointed.

    Sennheiser Launches the MOMENTUM Ivory Headphones

    lol... Panasonic RP HTX7 much? At least the Senny actually sounds a lot better and quite a bit more expensive.

    A choice between 3 headphones

    Haven't got much experience with the lower end Sennys but Momentum being nearly as cheap as a pair of a HD558 is a good deal. It is normally at the HD598's (another excellent headphone but for strictly home use) price range.

    Curious question for Audiophiles

    Dynamic range compression, EQing to counteract low frequency background noise. FM radio is mostly listened by people in cars, with low frequency background noise coming from the vehicle. It does somewhat make sense. The loudest passage and the quietest part is now about the same, so both can be...

    *TPU's Gaming Headphone/Headset Thread*

    In addition to the DT770/80, you should also consider the Beyer Custom One Pro. Much like the DT770 but adjustable bass and a more modern design. Both are very rugged though.

    Westone Launches the New Elite Series Earphones

    Seems to be the same thing as the old gen ES5s with new customization options and the new cable connector.

    Denon AHD1100 headphones

    Used to own a pair of CAL! and listened to the new Denon line, I will say the D1100 isn't much of an improvement if any. You might well keep the CAL! if you are staying at this price range, ZX700 isn't bad, but it isn't as musical as the CAL! and it is no where as comfortable.

    HiFiMAN RE-400 In-ears

    Seems like second coming of RE-0. Interested to give it a go some day.

    Creative Sound Blaster Z Sound Card

    I do that with my STAX and Essence ST without any "enhancement". Really depends on the headphone end for positioning.

    IK Multimedia Announces iLoud, the First Portable Speakers Designed for Musicians

    I love how the claims are totally over the top. With terrible naming sense as well. "sonic accuracy that's on par with professional studio monitors"? I think they will need much better monitors if they get smacked by portable speakers with no soundstage possible to speak.

    GPU-Z power consumption question

    660Ti don't even draw 150W in most cases, let alone 800W or the whole 12V rail you connected it to. Don't worry about it, your PSU is fine for even 2 of them on SLI.

    Show your audio systems!!!

    I prefer STAX and Audio Technica over any Senn any day. 350 USD is not a whole lot for a good headphone amp, 500+ you will start to get good quailty one from Burson and such.

    *TPU's Gaming Headphone/Headset Thread*

    I second a pair of Shure SE215, if you don't like them Sony EX600 is another good alternative.

    Got myself a pair of Sony MDR-1R, can't help but to be impressed by the comfort and sound.

    Advice on buying a new sound card

    I can't recommend the Essence enough, great sound for the price. The analog out is very high quailty if you decided to upgrade to dedicated headphone amps too.

    Sub-£150 monitor recommendations

    Loving my LG IPS225, great colour, decent pixel density due to being small. Best is the price tag at £100 odd.

    At least they found a creative way to market them. xD

    Advice needed! Looking into improving audio setup.

    The stock TH-900 sounded excellent out the box, none of the issues that the Denon D7000 had and simply better.
