It's sad, but there you go. If one searches, sooner or later one finds.

Anyhow, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Count me as one of the (nearly) disappeared.

That's a shame .... listen to them while you read and type.

You'll love those headphones. I have similar tastes to you and think they're great, as is that nirvana unplugged album, it sounds much better than the studio albums. Don't think that the 650 is better than the 595 either, IMO it isn't.

I love my 595s, everything sounds great, from bass heavy techno, to laid back matthew florianz ambient.

Have the SA5000s in the mail right now though, curious what Sony has to offer.

The 595s sound unbelievable with acoustic/unplugged music. Dokken One Live Night and Kiss unplugged sounds incredible.

You're so right, I haven't visited headfi for months. Just came by to put my k501 for sale (great headphone btw!) because I listen to 595 much more often.

Yep, they're great all-around cans. I like the "traditional" Senn sound slightly better for classical, but classical is a minority of my listening and I do love the 595s for other music...

You and I are in the same boat. I'm selling my AKG 501, no need for it as I don't listen much to music that warrants this type of headphone plus its bloody unconfortable.

I could never part with my HD 595 or SR 60. Even though they are not the most competent headphones, I enjoy using them for some reason

Really? I'm selling my SR60s. For some reason, my ears really hurt after listening to them. The insides feel really sore....but the 595s are sooooo smooth.

I got them 4 days ago, and i was quite amazed by the sound quality
I jumped from HD497 to these,and what a jump, even if they are not totally burned in!! I only hoped to have more soundstage and spacial reproduction...something that doesn't make me feel like I'm listening to headphones, but spekers...surely i'm asking too much. another small defect is that I feel mids/highs slightly grainy sometimes, but not too much. very very useful is the headp. holder, I think it should be given with all cans

really great cans, the face expression of the man on the box rapresents exactly how i feel when listening to them



PS : I have it amped by Onkyo 602, do you think it's too bad for this kind of cans?


I wanna quote two lines from SunByrne review:

The good news is that they spit out a very faithful reproduction of what’s fed in. If you like it really bright, the recording has to be bright. If you like it bass-heavy, then the recording will have to be bass-heavy. For me, this is what hi-fi is supposed to be all about; fidelity to the input.
I totally agree, HI-FI is supposed to be like this, not only for you
if anyone wants colouration in the spectrum, then you are not going to get High Fidelty, but Distorted Fidelty well, just kidding
post #27 of 971
Well, talk about bringing back an old thread, but I just had to.

I got these headphones for Christmas, and as my first foray into the world of hi-fi, well, let me just say these are the best cans I've ever heard. The other day I tried some Grado's at a local stereo shop (they were hooked up to a high-end McIntosh stereo system) and they really didn't do anything for me the way the 595's do. These cans just add a whole new dimension to my music. I can hear guitar/bass/drum lines that before were overpowered by the other instruments, and the sheer intimacy some of the vocals have, it's just...wow.

I love my HD 595's!
post #28 of 971
I know how you're feeling about them,

the HD595's are a gorgeous sounding headphone.



I've rediscovered them all over again lately, since finding out an amazing new op-amp combination for my Zero amplifier (see sig).

And I'm still waiting for the "big one" (that one that I've not resisted putting in my sig beforehand ) ...


Enjoy! (to us both)
post #29 of 971
Hello to all. I have this headphones from summer and i love´em... I want to buy a headphone amp for upgrade my listening sperience during this chirstmas... ¿any recomendation? ¿can the HD595 be upgraded with good and correct amplification?

thanks.
post #30 of 971
Of course it will! It's very sensitive to good amplification IMO, particularly as it's neutral (in the right way) enough to just let the musicality of a given amplifier through, which I find it does almost pitilessly.

One great amp to start with is most predictably the new Go-Vibe 4 with the (very well spoken of by Norm himself) AD8397 op-amp.



Here begins the road to nowhere called "upgraditis".
