post #3151 of 4065

holy moly that is quite the fantastic set'o'phones. it really is one of the best I've seen on my time lurking around

post #3152 of 4065

Not sure if you meant my phones or not.  But if so, thanks!

 

While I listen to the HD600s the most because they seem to work well with all of source and amp configurations, the Lamba, DT48 and Sextett pairs are probably the most fun to play around with.

I just came back from his profile page and oh my did I see some of the most amazing things and I think that it is so cool that he just collects in the name of just collecting not pursuing the perfect sound

I'm looking around about the sextett because of how it's unique driver system works and I'm having trouble finding a reliable place to try them, can you send me pm about how they sound qualitively speaking?

Move over Ultrasone HFI-780, the Sony MDR-1R just took your place at #1 in my list of head of headphones.

 

post #3162 of 4065

Based on how much I use them:

 

Sennheiser Momentum

Mr. Speakers Mad Dogs

Sennheiser 280s

 

Turns out I spend a lot more time wearing headphones while I'm walking around town than sitting at home and I don't have a portable amp to drive the Mad Dogs. The 280s were the only cans I had for a couple years, but they've taken the back seat to my more expensive purchases now that I'm not a broke college student.

But where is your AKG k314p now? I thougt those were your favorite AKGs!

post #3165 of 4065

I don't think of them as headphones but earbuds and tend to leave them out; I used them not ten minutes ago.

 

A recent discussion over at the Sextett thread made me realize now that my vintage K 141 don't have the Sextett-type ringing in their measurement (refer to the K 241 and K 250 graphs for examples of that). Since it's a serviced pair, I suspect the drivers were changed - they're of a grey color suggesting a later model, plus the response isn't comparable to the one seen in this old magazine (spot the hitch at 4 kHz, quite possibly reflecting huge 4 kHz ringing à la Sextett). No idea which drivers they might be.
