If I understand what you are saying, you’ll be reviewing many different headphones on over the next few months? If so, that’s very cool!  :thumb:

Hey Alex,

I'm looking forward to hearing your impressions with the Ananda's.
I've owned mine since last August and use them nearly every day as my main headphone..
My one beef with Hifiman is their pricing which is all over the place. There HE-400i's which
I no longer own went for $500 at one time and now their practically giving them away..
Their business model leaves a lot to be desired.. I've emailed them recently and told them
as much..

Jerry

Alex,  that should keep you busy for awhile.  Always fun to evaluate new gear. 


One thing that I've come to realize is that headphones need to be evaluated with an amplifier that can drive the phones to their full potential.
Many Stax phones don't sound as good with Stax amps as they do with aftermarket units such as a KGSSHV.   Makes  me wonder if some headphones can actually sound better than a higher priced model of the same line if the lower priced phone is mated to a higher end amp that has better performance.

12 Amps?   That's dedication!   Would be interested in your assessment of your amps. 


Whilst I largely concur with your comments,   I have found that a better quality amp can make a headphone sound clearer, more detailed, etc.  I've had a few different headphone amps,  and while most of them sounded similar, a small amount of amps (such as the Dynalo), do sound noticeably better.   Noise floor,  tonal balance, clarity are all noticeably improved  over the majority of amps I've come across.
