I have a pair of old HD600s that sounded weirdly hollow - vocals sounded recessed and far away. I dismantled it, messed around with the drivers and broke something.      A pair of HD650 drivers plus shipping would cost me $120. I have no guarantees that new drivers would fix the problem, but it seems likely. Sennheiser no longer sells HD600 drivers, so I'm stuck with the 650.    On the other hand, I've been thinking about the Philips Fidelio X2 which is highly...

I'm looking to replace my aging HD600s. I could purchase replacement drivers, but thought I might get a different pair of headphones that don't need amplification instead.   Budget - about the same price range as HD600, comfort is very important. I have the Audio-Technica ESW-9 which I love the sound but is not comfortable to wear for more than 30 mins. I'm looking to get the same kind of sound signature as either the HD600 or ESW-9.    Any recommendations? 
Hi,   I bought the Topping NX1 headphone amplifier, it is my first portable headamp. I tested it with the Sennheiser HD600 and it sounded terrible. When first powered on, everything sounded compressed, there was no separation and sound stage. It also sounded slightly muffled.   At first I thought there was something wrong with my Sennheiser, but plugging it into my Soundblaster ZX card it sounded fine. The ZX has a built in headphone amp rated to 600ohms. I left the...
Hi,   I have a pair of 10 yr old HD-600 that I hadn’t used for a couple of years when the sound gave out on the left side. Recently I opened up the grill and cups to check, didn’t see anything wrong and put them back. Voila, the sound came back. However, the cans now sound very constrained with zero soundstage, and clarity has suffered. I am playing them amped with the iphone as a source.    With the iphone and same amp, I then compared it to the Audio-technica ESW-9....
I bought a pair last week and I'm loving it. Not sure how durable the BA-200 is, can previous owners share? Should I buy another pair since this seems to be heck of a deal?
Hi guys,   I live in a small apartment, and I need a solution to enable me to watch TV or movies at night with my wife without disturbing the sleeping children.   Should I just get a splitter that lets me plug in two ¼ in headphone jacks? Or is there a dedicated box I can buy with two headphone jacks, that I can connect to my receiver?   I’ve used splitters before with 3.5mm jacks and they were terrible, often losing sound on one side of the headphone or...
I'm currently using IEMs when I run, but the seal isn't great and I have to keep adjusting them to get decent bass. I'm thinking maybe over-ear headphones would be better? Any recommendations, with remote for apple devices? By the way, I'm using MEElectronic M6P currently.
I agree with you that the classic LOD connection works best. However, I currently use my ipod touch for a lot of stuff other than music. I don't own an iphone, and I use apps heavily on the touch. To downgrade to a classic just for music is going to be tough and carrying two devices around is not appealing. I'd rather live with an ungainly LOD/adapter connection than lose all my apps on a classic.   The reason I don't own an iphone is the same, I don't want to carry...
I just bought an LOD cable and an amp a month ago, so definitely not. My current ipod touch battery life isn't great, so I may get a classic instead just for music.
