Can anyone else give me more insight on this? I hope I'm correct...


You'll be fine using the digital cables (impedance of those cables are 75 ohms, and I'm sure most headphone amps' input impedance is lower than this).

You can do the old trick (used to discuss in ATH AD-Series thread), using a small hose inside the padding. Something like this:

 

 

Cushion do change by long time pressure, but I think rubber is harder to changing the shape.

That's an interesting idea... I used cotton balls that I pulled out once, and they compressed out pretty quickly. Going to try this.

Do you guys have any recommendations for balanced cables for these? Something  <$100

post #15199 of 16967

Hello all,

 

My Vali is arriving on Wednesday. Im rather excited. 

 

Will be running:

 

(mac) itunes>>Audioengine D1>>Vali>> Senn HD 650.

 

I will most probably sell my D1 as it is relatively new (under two months) and go for a dedicated amp. Currently I could go for a Cambridge Audio DacMAgic 100...

 

Anyone have any experience/thoughts on the set up? 

 

Thanks

The stock cable can be re-terminated for the cost of a plug if you have tools to do so.

How much are the new Sennheiser cables?  I thought I read on the cover page here, that they would be reasonable...

post #15203 of 16967

Yep, $13 new 650 cable and a $5 Neutrik 4 pin is a good deal, and considerably less than what Headroom wants for the same thing.

 

The new Senn cables are not cheap.  $240 for the 650.

It can be had for $13? I'm seeing $18-25 before shipping most places.

Interesting the HD600 cable is $15 more!

Ah ha, of course I didn't check direct with Senn. Thanks! I'll be ordering one to mate with my Neutrik 4-pin plug.

But... how are you amping them?  Also, what StanD said.

 

Currently only a Fiio e11.... :/ but im buying either a ef2a, littledot, or magni. These would work w the hd650 correct?

The Magni is a very interesting design, it should be able to cause pain with your HD650 and even drive many low impedance Orthos (Planar Mags) like my HE-500. I can't believe that the price is so reasonable.

I have the Magni & Little Dot MKIII...both work beautifully with the 650's.  I prefer the MKIII with them over the Magni though...mainly due to the 'tube' sound.  Can't go wrong with either amp though and both will power the HD650's with more than enough power.

If one day Calvin gets a set of low impedance cans, the Little Dot might not be able to drive them as at 32 Ohms it can only crank out 100 mW.
