I had a little listening session today and I compared the HE-500 to the HD650 so I will give you my thoughts ( I know the OP compared the HEs to the HD600s ). I also had a bit of a go with the K701s. Up until 3 weeks ago I was a happy AKG K550 owner ( used with a Fiio E10 ). Went to hear some LCDs 2.2 over at a friend's place ( a freind of his came along with the LCDs ). It was my first encounter with plannar-magnetic and after reading about the "magic" I was expecting...
Could I be throwing my 2 cents in ? I will try and share the experience I had one evening at a friend's place which is not entirely related to the Schiit topic but rather made me realize some things about gear in general. When I tested the LCD2 and compared them to my K550 ( I know, right ? :D ) - I made a few fast tests. First off let me start by saying that I KNOW fast tests mean **** ( not Schiit :) ) so it would take someone days, if not weeks to actually hear the...
Ideally ( and hopefully ) I will get the Modi 2 + Magni 2 Uber - but I'd still like to know the answers to my previews questions :)))
Damn I need to have this forum banned from my ISP. It's reallllllly hurting my wallet =)) Now - just ordered the HiFiMan HE-500 :D so my wallet is having a stroke already. Currently I own a Fiio E10 + AKG K550 - I decided to get the HEs after I listened to some LCD2s but found them just a bit dark ( which is normal after being used to the K550s ) - and decided to pull the trigger on the HEs without seeing them in person let alone listened to them but I heard they are a...
Just got the R1 myself about 1 hour ago, and although it's never a good idea to get an opinion this fast I will post my first impressions. Please pardon the non-audiophile terms :) First off the package is impressive, the case is superb and OMG - soooo many earbuds. The build quality on the IEMs is not bad at all. Ok quickly moving to the sound impressions. Overall they sound a bit too dark to be honest. Not much though but dark. As everybody noticed, the mids...
Tried changing the cable - a lot of options were tried. Plus if it would be a cable issue, how come the buzzing stops when a song it's played :)
@MrEleventy - I think that someone might have been me ( in 2011 when I got it ) :)) The problem occurs on 3 computers I tested it on so it's not a PC hardware issue. I wrote to Fiio - they said the E10 is out of warranty ( purchased it in nov 2011 ). However their ASIO driver was out in 2013 so no way for me to realize the problem with ASIO output BEFORE my warranty expired because there was no way of testing it up until nov 2012. Let's see what they answer.  
Im having a bit of an issue with my E10 - it's been reported before but I think there's something I'm missing here. I have a early version of the E10 .. bought in nov 11. If I go through the sample rate / bit options I hear a certain BUZZ in the headphones. However if I choose 24/96 or 16/96 nothing is heard. So you might think : why not leave it on 24/96 and call it a day? Well I am in a period when I test some speakers I recently got and I kept trying it out with...
I think it all comes down to a question of : what does a good sound mean exactly ?   From what I understand - the HM5 don't have a serious flaw to begin with - the sound when measured in a lab is clean, neutral and overall "right" - however when you listen to them - you don't get the wow factor or the "fun" factor. You don't FEEL pleasure that some "unright" headphones provide ( let's say the M50 as an example ).   Of course I am making this idiotic analysis...
Crappy part is -  there aren't any audiophile oriented stores in my town so I can't test anythin, and as I said - when it comes to AUDIO equipment and especially headphones which are so different, one must HEAR them out before deciding to pull the trigger - especially for what I am considering to be - a pretty expensive pair of cans such as the K550.   One thing is for sure though - I will skip on the HM5 as everyone here states the same thing about them being to...
