Her - 10/10   Totally not expecting it to be this good. I was kind of blown away by it and I think if I gave it a full review it'd be 10 pages and might require a few viewings. If I had made this myself I might have not changed a thing. Maybe the whole "surrogate" scene (and the actresses overacting). It actually was kind of funny too at times. I wish they could have held back on the swearing because it could have easily been PG-13 with a few cuts (that would not ruin...
 I would say they're similar too, but K400 has less treble and more of a bass roll-off.K400 is also a lot thinner sounding too with stock pads. K601 fixes this a little bit. I have an EP and LP version and use the EP a lot more. I found a version like new on Amazon about 6 months ago for $60 or so.They actually have different internal designs and sound similar. My EP's insides look more like a K500. I actually prefer the K400 to the K501, but not the K601. Q701 is better...
 Save your money and just do the bass port mod! If you can't get that you can just get some K712 pads.Hopefully the K712 hits $300. It's not worth $379 really.
 Nope, apparently the wiring is different.
Koss Pro DJ100 /TB with M50 pads and a really good amp. Total cost for the headphone + M50 pads is around $70. Feel free to proclaim i'm wrong   HD-650 and my Q701 don't really do anything better unless you're comparing the open vs closed thing.   Oh and I too agree that the ATH-AD2000 (Audio Technica) is better for female vocals than the HD-650. Too bad the pads on it go flat and it's hard to find.
 I actually thought the trailer kind of gives people the wrong impression of the movie. There's much more to it than what the trailer shows.If it wasn't for Tom Cruise's character I might not have liked this as much. He's no "super hero" at all really. Well, I can't say much more about that. He's quite a likeable character really.Interesting that this movie was released on D-Day. Could have very well have been D-Day 2040..err more like D-Day X Infinity. The title of this...
Edge of Tomorrow - 9.25/10
 Have you tried the ODAC? The ODAC is actually colder than the Modi, but I can't  put them into the warm/cold category. Both seems neutral enough to me. I don't find the Modi warm since it sounds great with the HD-650 and darker headphone. However it DOES seem to be slightly warmer sounding than my Headroom Micro DAC (which uses the CS4398). Modi is definitely not an analytical sounding DAC, which is good for me. Same with the ODAC.  BTW I just now realized what the DM100...
BTW..I really need to watch "Tampopo" again. That's a good movie about food (noodles). The director Juzo Itami has made quite a lot of good movies. One of them is a favorite called "Minbo: The Gentle Art of Japanese Extortion".   It's not about food, but this reminds me that I also need to rewatch "Chungking Express". Sounds silly, but one of the few reasons I went to Hong Kong before on vacation is that I was once a huge fan of their movies. I'm really outdated on...
 ODAC or Modi didn't do this for me also, but the Magni and O2 did, but just a little. It took awhile for me to figure this out. Usually when someone doesn't like the ODAC or Modi it's the amp's fault! The only time I got the Q701 to sound really too cold/thin was with a Magni + docked Ipod Touch 2G. That was the worst combo i've ever heard. Both of those are thin and bright to me. I actually think the ODAC and Modi are better products than the amps they go with! To me a...
