There's nothing wrong with being devoted to a hobby if it doesn't impair your work or home life. Keep on truckin', Matt.

BTW, I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts on the differences between hd580 and hd650 in terms of resolution, detail, and overall musicality.  I listen to mainly Classical with a little Jazz, Bluegrass, and folk - probably 80/20.  Liking my hd580 with Soloist but think I could do better with hd650.     

 

I would say that the HD580 and HD600 have a relatively neutral frequency response that is true to the source (if they are amped properly). The HD650 isn't more colored, to my ears, but more refined, with a better lower-midrange presence and better bass impact.

 

The HD650 is incredible with classical.

^^ Yes, it would be a close call between the hd600 and he500. They both do well with that genre. The he500 will be better with treble extension, attach and decay of notes. But it will cost more, weight more and need a more serious amp to sound it's best. Also the sound stage is a bit better than the hd600. 

 

The hd600 will have a nice balance, have a "smoother" presentation, cost less and is much more comfortable.

Nice Avatar Matt!  I am listening to it now with the 650's!

Hey, just wondering what the best way to care for the pads would be. Are they washable? If so, how often would you all suggest washing them? 

 

thanks...

I've read you can just take them off, wash them in cold water, and they'll be almost as good as new. I'd probably do it once a year if it were me.

^^^ I give them (all my headphones) a very through wipe down with microfiber cloths after every use, still look/feel like new and no need to remove the pads and really wash them. I learned my lesson from not following this on my M50s a few years back and the pads started flaking and cracking after a few months.

So it's okay to wash the pads once a year?

It seems like a lot of people have done it without any damage being done to them. There are a few threads on this:

I wash the pads all the time. 

post #10677 of 19533

^^ thanks guys. I'm about six months into my pads, so I'll wait a few months still and then give them a gentle wash.

I just keep picturing throwing the pads into the washing machine. Not sure they'd survive that... lol dt880smile.png

They will, I've done it before. Thrown them in with a load of laundry, let them air dry, and they're good as new.
