First thing I thought of was that this colour would be perfect for a full noctua themed build

I’m both a tech enthusiast and an audiophile. It’s interesting when my communities collide. I always love hearing about people’s audiophile journeys. My first hifi purchase was a pair of $2300 Klipsch Heresy III’s and a discount Cambridge Audio CXA81 integrated amp. All that was $3000 and I couldn’t be happier with where it’s taken me.

really really loved this video! as someone with decent headphones, but curious about the next level... I'd never even considered some of the benefits you mention, like listening outside your usual genres. thanks kyle!

Great video! Pretty much explained and captured the experience of getting into Hifi Audio. Although I would have recommended a Verite Closed as opposed to the Stellia, or better yet, still get a Verite Closed to get a different presentation (In my opinion better), You’ll end appreciating both and what they each excel at better.

I want to see all my favorite tech tubers get in the audiophilia. It’s a perfect match. So much of PC gaming and such involves sound. And audio tech is just plain cool. And finally because they’d be able to call out a lot of the old fashion audiophile snake oil.

In my early 20s I was buying all kinds of high end earbuds for use on my high end MP3 players (not iPods but rather South Korean and Japanese brands that had the higher end Wolfson DACs). No regrets in doing so as I've gotten to experience the best of Shure, Etymotic and Ultimate Ears (before the Logitech buyout) for extremely portable entertainment and found that brands like Bose were highly overrated for what they were.

Hey Kyle just wanna let you know that you can use your FiiO M11 Plus as a DAC for your PC when you connect it with a USB cable. You said you connect your Stellias into the rear IO but also showed connecting to your audio interface. So not sure how your setup works exactly, but just wanted to let you know that your DAP has a feature like that!

I highly recommend an amp and dac with those or any headphones for that matter. You will be even more impressed with them with the right power. You don't need to spend a ton either. The Schiit stack or the JDS Atom stack are a great way to start

Great review sir. Although I would encourage everyone else to see if you can find a way to sample some good gear before you buy some really expensive gear. You may find that you are perfectly happy with gear that costs significantly less than you were planning on spending.

For anybody curious over what makes these things so damn expensive, amongst all the likely Chinese made packaging and accessories, is almost always down to the QA associated with driver tuning. It's costly to produce consistently, and costly to start with.

I own the Utopia and just like you Kyle, I can attest that it is one of the expensive choices I have not regretted for even a minute. And I also remember how the headphones made me switch from just passively having music in the background to actively listening to it and giving it my full attention.

Nice to see you like them! Usually, the audiophile community recommends you to progress more slowly, since jumping from 200 to 3000 can be too much, and sometimes the sound signature may not be to your liking.

IMO using a headphone stand like the wooden one shown may effect clamping force and especially the shape of the pads over time. Especially the pads of the Beyerdynamics really looked compressed and being like that over a long period of time wont be good for the pads. Cant tell for the Focals however as their resting position is far more open. Just a heads up.
