    Open back + speakers

About a week ago I had the "great" idea to purchase an audio splitter, so I could hear the speakers and headphones running at the same time. Turns out, it is the most open soundstage I...

    Review Bowers & Wilkins P7 - Still a fantastic set of cans

    I recently purchased a second hand pair of the P7 headphones after being pretty disappointed with the PX7, particularly when plugged into an amplifier. I must admit, I am a bit of a B&W fan since I have a set of 606 s2 speakers paired with the Rotel a11 tribute and Rega Planar 2 turntable...

    Bluetooth Headphones Built in Mic Compatibility

    Hi all, I'm looking to get a pair of bluetooth headphones (likely the AKG Y400s), and I can't find out if the built in microphone will be compatible with an iPhone over Bluetooth.

    Budget headphone system

    Hello, the last couple of months I've been trying headphones and a few dacs. I listen the HD599, HD560s, Audio Technica M20X, Hiby FC1, LG V30 and my own phone as a DAP. If I'm honest every time I changed the gear I felt something was lacking but when I returned to use them, I wasn't happy...
