New gear.....

Don't know if I'll be able to make it though. The weekend is usually spent with my fiancé and we're in the middle of discussing/planning our wedding.

You mean she wouldn't want to hang out with a bunch of guys geeking out over audio gear? :rolleyes:

No new gear for me, been out of the head-fi loop lately...damn comic books and - wait you don't like beyers???
post #1549 of 2686

I get most of my comic dosage online these days. I still have a bunch of old Fantastic Four sitting around somewhere though.

 

Of the Beyer family, I have owned or heard...

DT48e

DT250-250

DT860

DT770-80/250

DT880-250/600

DT990-250/600

DT1350

T50p

T70p

Custom One Pro

 

Of those, the only one I've kept for any marginal amount of time is the COP, and that has been completely gutted and modded with different drivers.

 

All the full sized Beyers share the same elevated treble aggressiveness that's too much for my ears. The DT48e was just an oddball and sort of a living relic. I actually kind of liked the DT250, and if I had to pick one to keep from the list that would be the one.

Old Fantastic Four's you say... :devil_face:

That's an unreal amount of Beyers, I suppose compared to your he-6 the treble is a tad aggressive 

post #1551 of 2686

The HE-6 does have a bit of treble hotness, but the Beyers are piercing for me. With my HE-6 I've modded them quite a bit though, so the treble is quite toned down. Probably a bit too much as it's maybe a tad muted now, but I'm particularly sensitive to certain treble frequencies so I just play it safe.

 

Given how power hungry the HE-6 is, changing amps also gives it different character.

Hey Viper, welcome to the party.  I can haz a listen to your HD800 sometime?  I always seem to miss the get togethers in which an HD800 is present, and I want to hear one before I decide whether to lust after an electrostat for my next upgrade.

post #1556 of 2686

For sure.  I should try to make it to one of the meets sometime.

It's still burning in (and by burning in, I mean trying to get adjusted to its sound :P ).  I just got it last week, and really haven't had much time on it.  Waiting for some gear and cables to arrive.  Looks like it'll be quite the challenge to get it to sound good though, it's very picky with source and amp.

Any chance you have a balanced cable for the HD800?

Ordered one from Toxic Cables, with an estimated wait time of 6-8 weeks  o_O

On the last page I brought up the possibility of doing a little meet in late Feb or early March. What works for you?

End of February might work well, I'm going to Vancouver for a week in early March for conference.
Weekends are always preferred wink.gif
