With regards to tube Vs solid state, what would i have to spend to outperform my Graham Slee Solo SRG? What do you regard as a 'proper' tube amp?
post #11672 of 25395

Yep Your right of course. 

 

Thanks.

Are there a lot of people here that sold their HD650 and bought them again later on? I'm afraid of getting seller's remorse just to have to pay more for the HD650 again in the future. In my head at the moment I'm just justifying selling them because I'm not using them as much. 

 

I don't know what to do :(

I'm looking for a portable case for my brand new HD650. I found a case online for the HD555, are the dimensions the same (will it fit the HD650?)?

I imagine the 555 and 650 are similar shapes and sizes but it probably depends on the case. Do you have a link or pic of the case you're looking at?

just received E12, the sound becomes significantly thicker and sub-bass is awesome.

post #11680 of 25395

^^ Interesting impressions. I have not heard the same about the e12. Mostly, I hear thin and neutral. Glad that you're liking it. Are you using the bass boost?

post #11681 of 25395

Lets be real here, To power these properly you are looking at an amp that costs as much as the headphones cost themselves. 

 

Anything else isn't going to yeild very good results.

Nonsense. The E9 and Magni does just fine with them. Same with the Asgard 1 or 2.
IMO the DAC has made the most improvement. Strangely the cheapest one I've had sounds the best to my ears.

Also..my Total Airhead drives them just fine. The clipping light never goes on ever and sounds amazing.
It seems a lot of people even love the HD-600/650 off a simple CMOY amp.

This is the opposite of being real.

well, maybe this is because E12 is my first amp. i just got my hd650 on Sunday, which is the first headphone that makes me want to invest in an amp. the sound is significantly thicker, mid is a little bit more forward. high is relaxing for me. and the bass is tight and more substantial. the soundstage is also wider.

 

I am using with bass boost on, gain off and crossfeed off

Yea, I'm pretty sure the $99 Magni has sufficient power to drive these. From what others say, the HD650 can sound "good" straight of their source. It just doesn't get into "very good" or "excellent" territory without amping. It's interesting that one of the most widely praised pairings for the 650 is the Bottlehead Crack, a $280 DIY amp.

Just ordered the Modi/Magni stack yesterday with the HD650s to follow, so I'll find out first hand.
