Does your work involve reviewing headphones??? Otherwise, I can't imagine bringing "multiple" headphones to work. devil_face.gif

Yep, to each is or her own. I guess my ears are just much more sensitive to the upper registers.

 

But Chris J has a great idea... Single Malt cures multiple ills.

The even funnier part is that the first time I wrote about using a DAC1/K701 combo on head-fi, I expected to hear a response like your experience. Instead I got a response from another member, stating that the combo sounded neutral and detailed. It's crazy how differently people can hear the same thing. 

 

BTW, have you tried the DAC1 with the Senn HD650 (or even 600)? I've always wanted to try that combo, since it is offered on Benchmark's website. I've just been reluctant to pull the trigger on a 650, considering my tendency towards brighter sounder gear.

Everything sounds better with a good scotch! Even a root canal isn't that bad after a good scotch. bigsmile_face.gif

Yep, nothing like a glass of fine Single Malt!

 

BTW, does anyone know if 600 Ohm DT880s can be converted to balanced WITHOUT tearing the headphones apart?

Does Beyer use a three wire or four wire cable?

Yup... owned the HD600's for a bit. Used the DAC1-Pre and it was good. Real good. I found the HD600 had a very natural, rich sound. Very 'acoustic' and sweet.

However... and the reason I had to let them go... the roll-off in the highs. Yes, that's right, Mr. Sensitive to highs didn't like the way they were absent. What can I say. I like it crisp, and couldn't find that in the HD600. But that was quite a while ago. I may have a change of heart nowadays.

Well here is my quick solution which seems to work well so far. It's a cable tie attached to the underside of my desk.

Great idea! What do you have the tie anchored to?

Just wanted to throw in that I'm now a member of the DT880 600 ohm club! = D.  Only using it with an Audinst MX-1 right now but it sounds really nice!.

...I don't see your name on the list... ah go on then!  We should scrap 600 ohm from the title of this thread.

It's a sticky zip-tie mount, I bought them at Lowe's to tidy up my PC and had a couple left over.
