Do you bros even lift?
5'3"?? yeah… rather short… NO I WON'T LIFT. Might stunt my growth even more… maybe the heavy planars will force my body to adjust
I agree the HD650s need juice; I can game just fine with them out of my Microstreamer, but when I listen to music, it's a bit underwhelming; when I use the line-out from the uS to my Asgard, though, everything becomes more punchy and dynamic and open. It's hard to really put a finger on exactly what it is that improves, but it just sounds way better o_O
Can anyone with a properly burned-in HD650 comment on how the sound has changed through the burn-in period? Was it is a dramatic difference?
I am still at ~50 hours, alas, but it sounds really lovely already.
I just bought a Cavalli EHHA from a friend. It's a DIY amp from Cavalli and it's a hybrid. When I first plugged in my HD650, I was surprised how much the sound improved. It was fast and airy, two adjectives that people don't normally associate with HD650. Before I had my EHHA, I used centrance dacport, and with it the sennheisers sound slow and veiled. So to answer your question, yes there are amps that can improve Hd650's speed. But don't expect your amp to magically turn your HD650 into a stax, that's just not possible. By the way, I tried my EHHA with the Abyss and it could drive it with authority.
Really? Mine really opened up after 5,000 hours of use. No longer veiled at all.
Between hour 8 and 9 I noticed a .6db boost at 28khz also. It was kind of fatiguing.
I was about to ask about your special hearing abilities, until I noticed the avatar.
I'm not sure if you tried to imply anything with your post, but I bought my HD650 in early May and have been using it about 3 hours a day ever since.
