Wanting to get more out of my HD595s.. - Page 3

Complete... for now



Made a bit of a mistake, thinking the Beresford has Coax input, so I have a nice cable running to my X-Fi's breakout box, grf!

Very impressed with the sound quality and my oh my, where did this bass come from? I DEFINITELY recommend replacing the stock tubes, I grabbed some Raytheon 6SN7 and an RCA 6AS7 from Skylab and noticed a huge jump. My initial reactions with the stock tubes were apparently negligible after a few hours, I had a hard time noticing much of a difference on these low impedence cans when switching from the 336i to my X-Fi Platinum's breakout box unamped, but the stock tubes improved it greatly. I'll break the rig down some more in coming days, but for now I'm having too much fun enjoying them!

Cause just look at that crappy Belkin PureAV power center. Everything Lollan does is second rate as a rule.

I mean come on, he hasn't even heard a Solid State amp!

Then those 595s, pure entry level. The fact that he would even listen to a Sennhesier below 650, all the other Sennheisers are horrible compared to the 650, if you use less, you may as well not even be listening to music.

Definitely not a real audiophile

Not everyone has that type of money

Look at the equipment in Svperstar's sig. He has the same Belkin unit. Methinks he was joking.

I agree I think he's just being a little goofy poking fun at the elitist folks that used to be/may still be around.

lollan, if you are looking for quality cables, check Blue Jeans cables. Personally I bought my speaker cables from them, probably will be getting some balanced cables later on... paid whooping $6 =]

The Eskimo is kidding, he's the one that originally brought me to Head-fi, devil's advocate

Actually, I ordered some cheap cables from Radioshack and I'm using the coax cable stanley made for my source, which I've read is very high quality for what he charges. I'll definitely grab a Blue Jean RCA cable though, just to make sure I have all of my bases covered! Thanks again!

Black is the most absorbent color, therefor his black power center will absorb more heat, EMI, and general interference. Silver however is a reflective color, and will not be prone to the same amount of disturbance.

However don't worry that you didn't know that, I am the most intelligent member of this entire forum so I don't expect you, or especially Lollan, to keep up.

Finally someone gets it!!

Still waiting on Lollans 650 impressions.

If you have the older 100 Ohm version, DO NOT sell them. You'll see they are rated very highly by Head....(?), the seller. They are much different sounding than the 650s - more detailed, peppier. They have PRAT (Pace, Rhythm And Timing). Maybe recable them with some Cardas for a touch of warmth. Black Dragon from Moon is a little less warm and more detailed.

Changing amps will improve the sound, but not the headphone. I have used these (along with my k-701s) to listen to an SP MPX-3 SE Slam, MAD HD something or other and to audition the New Blue Circle SBH. They are all somewhat different-sounding and they all sounded great with these headphones.

It is an all-round winner.

I can't vouch for the under-100 Ohm set.
