Where did the Headset/Earbud recommended tier list thread went?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

There used to be a thread that had a list of all headsets and earbuds tested by Linus and their tiers according to price. I can't seem to find it by searching or even googling the site.

 

Thanks.

This list isn't by Linus, but it used to be pinned in the audio sub forum:

Has many headphones and IEMs listed.


I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.

exactly but there is a lot of gear there that would probably end up removed and replaced with the current IEM market and with how fast that market moves and evolves. the DAC and amp narket has changed a significant amount and I would switch out or add some suff there . and Im pretty ok with a lot of the headphone reccs and wouldnt really remove any I would just add a lot.

To which I disagree, the market hasnt invented anything new in years, so something old still performs, even if there is something newer. There is just new stuff that also performs.

the tin t2 basically kick starterted a lot of improvements in the IEM market.  things like more planar IEMs being made multi driver IEMs are getting cheaper and has basically devolved down to chif i chucking things at the wall adn see what stick and what stick is usually pretty damn good things like the tin t2, t4, mood drop kxxs, ikko's offerings , more fiio gear, maybe nothing new has really been invented but a lot more has been made and explred and lot more manufacturers have hopped on the scene both bad or good. 

 

its basically if one thing exists and performs better for cheaper or new models have come out I would just add and maybe switch out stuff that even the author himself didnt like. Im no audio expert though. I just know a lot of gear on these lists can easily be switched out for a newer better model of the same thing or something subpar even for the price but due to the time it was made you had no other choice

The list honestly gets quite outdated, especially for IEM since balanced armature driver iem gets cheaper and cheaper

I see Superlux in the list and I immediately wanna flip a table and smash a window. More treble doesn’t equal “better”. And it always annoys me how headphone reviews always go bananas over really bright headphones because all that matters is “detail”. I mean, what happened to personal enjoyment!? In other words, not getting your ears assaulted?

What if certain types of brightness is personal enjoyment though?. I quite enjoy how bright my 990's are ran off this specific amp that I use .

Well, I regret about half of the headphones  I bought due to excessive brightness. It makes alternative rock and indie sound awful. I mean... cymbal crashes TSSS!! TSSS!!! TSSS!!! (... yay! Forget the bass, the singer...I only wanna hear the cymbals... said no one!)

Them fucking micro details though. Honestly I'm on the same boat as you. But I have very specific frequency sensitivities. 8k-9.5 k is a no-no region for me but a 10k bump? I'm ok with and enjoy.
