...the hd650drivers are honey-coated, no?  :P

 

========================================

 

there was a time when i had the BCL, Burson160, EF5 hybrid,

the one that thrilled me most was the EF5...a little tube magic :)

I had the same feeling but then I went to a heaphone meet and tried out the Grado after not having them for a while and fell in love again :p it's complicated with me and Grados

I'm just hoping I can go to this upcoming meet and not get that upgrade-itis itch.  I really hope I don't hear a headphone I just feel I have to have.  It's gonna be dangerous...

one "grado" i regretted selling is the MsPro...its so captivating, like i was transported out of body momentarily in some songs,  listening to this can.

It depends you are talking about what kind of "Transient", Decay Transient or Attack Transient, the decay follows the attack though. 

 

ROFLMAO!  You think this is like a NASCAR or something...I think V8 Supercars are better!

 

Also, those CSD charts do not seem to tell me anything at all about what is going below 1 khz...what about Middle C?  Probably more than 70 percent (very likely much more) of the audio energy from music is below 1 khz.

 

Making general sweeping statements of a headphone with a CSD plot will inevitably lead to incorrect assumptions and conclusions...This has already occured.

I must say that just reading about the synergy between the HD650 & BHC......this combo has slightly appeared on my radar.

Better to ask for forgiveness, then permission.  That's what I always say...

 

...sorry gotta go, my wife has a honeydew list for me.

these must be the best 2nd hand can bargain, mine still looks like new ! ~more or less...  sound even better tho... mind you...

 

can't wait for my conductor to arrive, and plug them in, and yes take some photos too, love that contrast !

 

my hd650 was bought bnew 6mos ago...

on the other hand, am the 2nd owner of the ha-160...

spent too many hours reading reviews to replace my magni and finally came up with this classic yet awesome amp...

nice synergy these two!

So true...Whenever I let girls listen to my headphones...I always break it down between the HD650 and K701 - for research sake...they have all preferred the HD650 over the K701. 

post #15628 of 28382

The HD6xx just have that relaxing warm sound. Good for general picture of the music, but lack microscopic detail for studio work and such IMO.

post #15629 of 28382

Ha! Well that's prolly why they all prefer the HD650...I did my job well to make them relaxed...high fives...second base here we go!

post #15630 of 28382

This afternoon I've spent with the Crack and 650 with a nice 5998. :eek: I've heard lot's and lot's of high end hp's and gear. The ONLY time that I have been more jaw dropping impressed was at the Atlanta meet with the Stax 007 mkii on the blue Hawaii. 

 

Good grief boys this is some incredible schiit. :beerchug:
