I'm kind of seconding this question. I want a DAC and AMP or a combo. What I want is a decent design, symmetrical out and non shit measurements.
I'm currently using a stx ii which is good enough, but optical aspects make me want to upgrade, also mini itx will be possible in the future that way.
If possible the amp should be capable of driving planars as well. Don't have any now but maybe in the future.

Any recommendations that won't cost me an arm and a leg?

If you want a cheap compatible enclosure to tune the thing before putting in work Just buy a pair of supelux HD330. Its 100% compatible with these driver assemblies and is compatible with beyer pads. The headphone itself is excellent for the price if modded too as the driver is pretty high quality for a standard mylar driver.

Just buy some fiber-free cloth with holes to replace the foam speaker -then open the grills and put some foam just like in the pic related (but light foam), then put a thick type of foam on top of the spider cage and then add some cotton and cover the grill with foam just like 58x. Damping is good. Reminder: don't remove the foam from the spider cage, because you are going to cover the entire grill with foam so it changes the detail retrieval drastically as both foams engage with each-other so it really doesn't matter if you remove it or not. Just don't do the dynamat mod because it makes it sound more muddy and bassy, in a stax way. Results, it has more tonality, bass and mids shine, and the veil around 3,5k-9k increases for a little bit. It's just becomes more aggressive because the sound stage collapses but in sophisticated way so it just become more upper mids focused.

Your problem is most likely not the headphones but your amplification to it.
Here's what you should try
Get an iBasso Emotive A-100 and follow the instruction to make the headphones output good (open the thing and change a jumper inside it), should be be loud enough for you.

i keep some 650s on hand but never use them because they are fucking TRASH compared to electrostatic headphones

>> No.72788758

consider sennheisers, anywhere from 650/6xx upwards, and getting any amp that tickles your fancy

comfort-wise you may consider beyerdynamics or AKG. I've personally got AKG K701s and they're really comfortable

how do i upgrade my ears to appreciate the value of $2k headphones?

>> No.72789812

I want something that sounds similar to the ATH-M50x.
Budget is 300$.
Any recommendations? And why do we hate the m50x now?

Thoughts on the Bose QC 35 ii versus the Sony WH-1000x m3?
As an autist, ANC is my priority but comfort comes right after because I will be wearing them for long periods of time.
How bad is the false (ghost) touch recognition on the Sonys and how much better is the ANC in the Sonys compared to the Boses? Is it worth picking the Sonys over the Boses for the ANC only?
Also don't give me the BS about ANC damaging my hearing because I know the compensation waves' amplitude won't be greater than the surrounding noise's.
