A rare find has happen!! My Stanton DJ Pro2000 has broken in nicely (after 2 years of abuse) These cans were for DJ use only and never rigged up to proper home high end source/amp. But due to lack of quiet environment now i.e KIDS ( pro2000 has superb isolation) I gave the old girl a go (ahh quiet). Double take a few time here. I can say it actually sound just as good as my modified Senn HD580 (with HD650 cables) for its renewed use (may have open a can of worm here ). Was totally shocked the mids and Hi have such clarity & detail & space, which defy its enclosed design. The 580 kicks lower though and better resolution, just for now. The 580 will always be my reference when theres no distraction from the outside world.
Never though a set of DJ cans can even be compared to reference cans. I am truely amazed. Like a fine wine, will only get better with age HOW TRUE in this case. Now just have to wait till the Little dot MK3 tube amp to arrive. That will knock some sense back into me right ?
May want if the wife let me : Senn HD650 with Cardas cable.
I was real happy with MS2i and HD600 for serious cans. With MS-1 for portable and for intimate stuff that the MS2i seems almost too "big" for, and of course I miss the KSC75 that the wife stole for her iPod. But, I really thought I was done.
Now all of a sudden I find I need another set, of closed cans this time, to help keep out the noise of the kids, and to give something tough and even more durable than MS-1 for the kids to use so they can keep their nasty paws off my MS-1!
There's about four or five good reasons why the MDR-V6 seems to be the ones.
My CD3000's back
HE90 (um. . . yeah).
Sony R10s (um. . . yeah that too).
