Well first, I like the open back. The are a bit laid back in presentation, which I also like, they are a very musical headphone. I don't like overly bright treble. To me they also represent the...

If you want a loudness button, most of Yamaha's lower end amps still have a loudness button. The high end Luxman L-505 ux has a loudness button (on the remote). Using an AVR is another option as...

Out of this list I have the Sennheiser HD650. I love them. I just prefer an open headphone.

I travel a lot so I bought the Bose QC35 for airplane flights. For what they are they are very good,...

The P-Series 55 in is also an IPS. I'm not sure about E and D series, but I don't think they have one that is IPS for those series.

Doesn't look like it. If you need an amp, I'd suggest hooking the source to your A2 and using the preamp out of the A2 as an input to the 801

If you are worried about off angle viewing, you might consider the M60, which is an IPS panel.

Not sure I understand the question, I assume a musical keyboard. The amp has two separate RCA inputs. Anything that outputs RCA can be plugged in I guess. A headphone jack would be ok with a cheap...

I would look into something open backed or good buds that were not isolating. I definitely wouldn't use noise cancelling while driving. You need to be aware of what may be around you and sound is...

One thing I discovered today. I read an article which is probably why I thought I experienced more noise on the plane than I should have. I had my glasses on. One reviewer noted that with his glasses...

I have the QC 35. I just bought them. Now they are no substitute for my Senn 650hd, but for plane travel they are great. I bought them while on the trip. I tried them in the hotel with the noisy...

He has a point. For 1000 bucks the FF costs you could get a killer solid state amp. Still, I'd audition some other headphones. Then if that doesn't do it, look at amps. Your dac is fine.

Yea, I have ESS Sabre 32 bit (9018)DACs from my Oppo BDP-95 feeding my headphone amp. (I don't use it in a desktop app). So I'm not DAC poor for sure. You also have ESS Sabre dacs, albeit, 96/24. ...

Just a quick review of their ratings is enough for me. I'm not impressed. When a bose quiet comfort scores better than a Senn hd 800S, it's time to look elsewhere for reviews. They obviously don't...
