dfkt - Have you heard the Vsonic GR07? If so, where would it fit on this table? I'm probably 6 months too late, but it receives some very positive comments - even now when the FOTM stage seems to...

I didn't mean to imply that the 112 can sound exactly like the 232. I was just trying to get a general idea of the sound signature.

Thanks for the FR graph. I've been futzing with EQ for the PFE112 to get an idea of what the 232 sounds like. It sounds quite nice for pop/rock/techno and like, but I don't know what to think...

This is a welcome change to the bass quantity value. Thanks!

If only I was willing to spend that much money on the 232 :(

dfkt - Thanks for the description of the sound. It sounds like a headphone I would like a lot. I find the 112 to be really comfortable, so the 232 are obviously a winner (for me) in that aspect as...

Ouch indeed. The EQed PFE w/grey filters is my favorite headphone, and I was looking forward to the 232. I guess I should thank Phonak for keeping my wallet full.

I agree. An important point in this post is the "low end" part of it. If you go to a big headphone meet you'll see all sorts of esoteric equipment. This ranges from "I saw it on ebay and I had to...

I agree with you that a 2X gain is probably best for the low gain. Somebody has already built the amp with a point to point design, and has driven it to clipping by using a DAC with a 2.5Vrms+...

I agree with you 100%. I don't think there is a need for a DAC. I'll explain why I think this by first talking about the O2.

The O2 fills a need in the headphone world. For a long time a number...

Thanks for the great review! Back when I was purchased the E7 I was also thinking about the Nuforce, but I felt the E7 was a better fit. It's good to know I made the right choice.

The best part is now they have to stick to their flawed design since they responded with "You listen to your ears, not a scope" and "Ours sound the best." If they "improve (read: fix)"...
