Sennheiser HD595 Appreciation Thread - Page 29

post #421 of 966
Well, I've been rummaging through these forums for quite some time yet I haven't posted until now. I wanted to say though, that this and a few other threads convinced me to get a pair of HD595's and I sincerely haven't regretted my decision thus far. After owning a pair of Grado SR80's and AKG 240s, I was looking for something that would be good at just about every kind of music I have in my eclectic collection-- especially rock and hip-hop-- and for me the HD595 does it. I love that it manages to avoid the infamous Senn "veil" without being as forward as the Grados (which to me are often too bright), and it also looks pretty good to boot. Anyway, I've gone on long enough, and I'm sure at some point when I've got a bit more funds I'll invest in a proper headphone amp. In the meantime, I'm enjoying the HD595 for what is is-- a truly fine headphone.

You are 100% wrong because if the HD 595 had some mini connectors inside then I wouldn't have left them sitting on its hanger for months.

See here, the left driver where the cable exits/enters:

mmm who knows, i hate this forum argghhhh always putting costly thoughts in my mind!!
Recabling the 595 is more difficult than the 580, 600 and 650 but IMO well worth it. Many have complained about the weak bass and slight grain of the 595s. It is possible to address these weaknesses with a good recable and make a good all-around can even better. Depending on your skills it could be a DIY job. There are also a number of head-fiers who can recable the 595, or you can have the cable manufacturer install their cable.

HD595 are really good, but only thing that bothers me is the buildquality. Cheap feeling plastic and no real leather in the headband. Few minor things that don't really affect the sound too much. But they are the most comfortable headphones I've used. Grados are too much for me since I tend to keep headphones in my head for hours straight.

Ok i missed something here. Recabling needs some soldering. I agree with that. If cable don´t have that connectors. I was thinking of replacement with stock cable. That is a whole different story.
post #426 of 966
Right, we're talking about recabling with BETTER cable
post #427 of 966
But i find out that Soloz audio sell/make cable for HD595 (SPC/Cardas). And from picture i cannot see if already have that connectors. I must send them e-mail about that. I replaced cable only once with stock because original was damaged. This time i consider to recable with that Soloz cable. Is it worth it? And wich is better? SPC or Cardas? What is difference beetwen stock and recabled? And what is difference with SPC & Cardas version?

My 595's are great -- if only they had a little more bass....

Silverrain these HD595s, you like them over the phones you sold, DT880, 990, SR325, Darth Beyers and K701?
post #430 of 966
I just picked up a pair of HD595's a few days ago, and its crazy how comfortable these are! My old Sony V6's felt like a vice on my head compared to these. I noticed people were commenting on how light/flimsy the 595's were earlier in the thread, but I think its a worthy trade off when it comes to comfort.
post #431 of 966
Before I break them, do 595 pads pull off like 650s?
post #432 of 966
yes, just pull them off
post #433 of 966
for your information i recabled them with spc 24 gauge and the bass is a LOT more present. i found the replacement quite worthwhile except the fact that i had to drill a hole in the earcup.

I have them as complements to RS-1's, Darths (V3 deep and V3 regular cup), HD580's, D2000's, D5000's, V6's and PX100's -- my current can rotation set.

K701 was too uncomfortable, and my current can set sounds better than the others named.
The Darths and Denons replaced the DT990 and DT880, the RS-1 replaced the SR325. The HD580 replaced the HD595's.
I don't use the HD595 much anymore, but just can't seem to part with them, they sound so nice, except for lacking somewhat in bass. I sometimes use them, or the PX100, un-amped out of various sources, since they are so easy to drive, and still sound good un-amped, for a change of pace.
If the HD595 was the ONLY cans I had (or could afford) I would be completely happy/satisfied with their sound.

I'm curious, do you find the HD595s more comfortable or the D2000/D5000s?
