Don't you have a neighbour or something? If you were in my town we could sort this in a jiffy but you've not disclosed your location.

 

I'm with @shawtuw on this one. Something's wrong. That amp should deafen you way before you reach even half-way on the pot.

 

Edit - I notice you've only posted this problem on this thread. Since the problem isn't with the headphones but the amp maybe you'll have more success posting in a Schiit thread.

LCD2.2 (pre-fazors) came in today. Man did I score a deal :)

 

Taking a brief listen and......very very nice. Have zero work to distract me the next few days - will leave them playing overnight to cook and then start the audition. Impressions vs the 650's in a few days.

 

On the world tour for the Fiio X5ii - should be at the door in a couple weeks - looking forward to how that sounds unamped with the 650's too. Has 40% more power than the original X5 and decent voltage swing, so I may be able to dispense with E12 amp for portable, around the house tunes!

Oh man looking forward to this....

I have the fazor lcd2s and would love to hear the pre fazor one day. Very interested in the X5ii as well.....

Hello all,

I just ordered the HD650! So excited to get it :)

I was listening for over a hour and compared it with the HD600. I saw a lot of HD600 vs HD650 threads and I see most of them tend to like the HD600. And seriously? I just don't get it.

More than a hour of listening to the two of them and they sound 95% the same. I barely noticed any difference between the two.

Only cause I like warmth in the sound, and eventually I got the HD650 brand new for 270$, I went with the HD650 (The deal I got was so good, even cheaper than the HD600).

Next purchase will be the Bottlehead Crack + Speedball upgrade :)

Ahh. Just got home from working 24hours since monday. I barely were able to really test the 650's before I had to leave, I can now enjoy these and my other phones a full week of time off! Happiness!

The differences between the two are smaller than you'd think. But I'd say it's even on where peoples's preferences reside. Good call on the amp. A friend of mine is building them regularly and does an amazing job if you are not looking to DIY.

Thanks Koolpep - one man's words and all that, but all info is good info and glad to share. Wish I had fazors available to compare the two, and I won't be the first to compare with the 650's, but hope it will help folks considering the same path to audionirvana :)

^^ good resource for those who doubt their soldering skills or just don't have the time or inclination. They do pop up for sale frequently too. Another source (with warranty) can be found in the Bottlehead forums as their semi-official third-party builder.

 

I'm pencilling in a Mainline build for the winter....
