I want a video of Linus listening to some vintage Pink Floyd over these. A David Gilmore solo and it'd be like opening flood gates.

They are still headphones Linus. Sound you can afford and vastly jmprove with a 2.1 audiophile system. And you had a proper Home Theater and replaced it with a sound bar. I'll bet my balls your Klipsch system sounds better in a decent room. You need to step it up.

I've always liked music and enjoy high quality audio, but wouldn't consider myself an audiophile. I havent listened on multi thousand dollar headsets before but I feel safe saying headphones can beat the felling of playing an instrument in hand. When you play an instrument, not only are you hearing audio, but you feel the vibrations in your hands and throughout your body. It brings a whole new sensory experience to music.

"You know why I'm into this stuff? It's because when you find something really good, you're not listening to the gear youre listening to the music. Theres nothing between you and the music" This is probably the best way to describe well engineered audio systems to people who arent into audio so they can understand.

I knew you would cry. My dad was a audiophile and some of his equipment will bring tears to your eyes. It is something you don't understand unless you experience it. It takes a hell of a sound system to do it though.

According to Audio Science Review forums, this product package is basically extremely premium snake-oil. I.e. it sounds amazing but they're not as amazing as you think they are. They're overpriced for what they are and I sort of believe it. The DAC (not just the box, the actual DAC chip) that the guest claims to be "the nice ones" hasn't been used in a whole lot of products, nor have the majority of the products been tested to confirm that they're "the nice ones". They're 'okay' at best. I would be willing to bet that Linus, with those headphones, could get same if not better sound quality with an assembly of different premium end-user products for possibly less then half the cost. Those headphones DO sound amazing, and this is review is consistent with other reviews on RUvid. What I don't understand is why pair the headphone with products that don't show up on their website? That seems *really* odd and utterly pointless. You could also make the argument that some people will get a decent dac/amp combo to drive these headphones properly, and the total price of the experience would be something along the lines of $7000, and it would probably sound exactly the same as what Linus was listening to. Bottom line, get the headphones (if you have the cash), and skip the other junk. At that price range however you could get yourself a pair of Stax with electrostatic tube amps.

Tom Tran Month ago
@DannyBos you can actually. Depends on the driver quality and cup materials. No expensive headphone (or anything for that matter) is ever worth the full price. 3K headphones barely sound better than $1500 open back headphones which barely sound better than $500. From there, they sound wayyy better than everything below them. Lol
