Not a 'What are you listening to?' ...thread, but...

Post by Tommy Monk on Thu Jul 16, 2015 11:41 pm

.. what are you listening to your music on???



At the moment I'm using a stack of 3 different speakers, set of jamo D165 at the bottom, set of AIWA 100watt 8 ohm in the middle, set of Tannoy reveal on the top, A decent 200 watt amp, Mackie mixing desk, and with either Sony cd player or my pc (with a midiman delta sound card) as source... sounds absolutely superb!!!


Nice!!!

A decent set of Sennheiser headphones on the computer

just a cheapo CD player which included speakers and sub at home. although i have gotten into the habit of Playing Music videos through the computer which is connected to the TV.

Thank you veya... I want to get myself a decent set of headphones (thought you said 'decadent' at first glance there!)... one of my mates got a set of some make for about £80 quid I think, sound excellent but can't remember the name of make... are Sennheiser any good?

1) One of these bad boys with my old iPhone, mostly for internet radio:



2) Also works as a good external speaker for my little turntable:



But mostly, I listen to music on my Galaxy 3 with the headphones that came with it (Samsung headphones are pretty good, imo) or on my ancient Sansa Clip mp3 player when I'm out for a run. I have a fairly massive mp3 collection loaded into Google Play Music, so I can get to my music from anywhere with my phone.

yes they are good, long running German brand, the top ones are professional headphones (DJ and Aviation etc), I just got an average one for that brand I think it would be £70-80 (converting currency)

better than Sony etc or those dr dre ones

http://en-au.sennheiser.com/headphones

I prefer the over ear style when sitting at a desk etc
Like Ben I use Samsung ear-buds ones that came with the phone when out and about, good enough for on the train etc Wink

Nice one Ben!


That speaker tower thing looks 'bad boy!'.


And veya, I'm thinking that might be the same make I'm talking about, remember German being origin...



I'm also using my set up for guitar + GT-5... that's why I need the headphones!!!

It's pretty good, I usually don't get to crank it up much living in an apartment, but I've brought to some houses for parties and it does a nice job of filling the room Smile
