I've just got back from a three mile morning walk with two dogs, an SGN3/E18 & HD650's. We live in the sticks, literally no-one for miles. The E18 does a fair job of driving these headphones. Volume @ 7, low gain, bass boost - if ya' feel lucky - on. I think I'm really beginning to appreciate how fast these are, they're rhythmic & timing abilities are frankly awesome to my ears.

I only have two negatives...

1. I'd be incredibly self-conscious wearing them in public as portables.

2. I can also hear Emmerdale.

Enjoying my coffee this fine morning before work....listening to disc 1 of Joe B.  An Acoustic Evening At The Vienna Opera House, Live with my HD650 and Mad Ear....pretty impressive stuff.

What's a "Mad Ear"?

An amplifier with lots of power and punch is called 'Mad Ear'...because Mike Tyson.  :bigsmile_face:

He might be joking. MAD Ear can refer to a couple amplifiers from Mapletree Audio Design. (Get it "MAD")

Tyson and Holyfield are now good friends.

 

Holyfield was in financial difficulties not long ago and tried to market his own BBQ sauce...Tyson came to his aid and in one of the promo's - Tyson said something like "I spat out his ear...but if I had this BBQ sauce...".  I thought that was great...two gladiators that were fierce enemies grow old together as good friends.

 

And of course, the HD650 is a great headphone...

I wouldn't buy Cardas solder off eBay.  No guarantee you are getting the real thing.

Are there amps out there which hype certain frequencies?

 

To be honest I don't want to adjust EQ at all for this amount of money, i'd like them to have a distinct, enjoyable sound which I can enjoy music/reference music on.


yeah, you need a amp with the hd 650. no amp = bad sound

It's not something I'll be working on. We found a house in the country and only very occasionally get into town. This is a good thing, for all concerned.

Changes of tempo are far clearer with the Senn's. I'm here changes where I never noticed before. I was blind, but now I see!
