FINALLY! You using the felt I sent you back in the day?

post #14717 of 14934

speaking of ohhgourami's felt, I replaced the stiff felt with soft felt as per his suggestion. BIG difference. Much better, not longer sounds distant.

Any links to the right felt to be used?

Lojay beat me to it but I kinda figured out the response. The price is cheap but the shipping is 4 times the price !!

Yes I am. It's been so long since I've seen the inside but I think I backed off doing the fuzzor mod in full. And believe I went back in and left only 50%-75% of the surface covered with felt.

List some tracks you liked the most with the HE-6s

 

Those Denons sure does log a lot of time, and the D5K got more time than the D7K - what's up with that?

post #14726 of 14934

I've done that timing thing before when I was burning in an equipment. I just created an excel spread sheet and logged the start and end time of my listening session. Most of the I just let it play for hours, let it rest for a few then start it again.

Those 6s should be stable now. They blossom so nicely with power. smily_headphones1.gif

OK so what do you guys think:  Some things he is spot on and some things he is way off.  This review is all over the place.  Keeps saying the HE-6 need lots of voltage.  I think he meant current but I can't tell.

Yes. This practice stems from:

 

- Researching music and having to access Reserved Book Rooms/Reserved Music Rooms

- Writing letters (lots of them by hand)

- Being ceremonial about Music, Writing, Tea ect...

 

Not really about the gear per se :D but it is nice to reflect.

- List I shall, to give you; y'all, an idea into my nights. :wink: Saturday night I definitely enjoyed some Willie Bobo (Latin Jazz Percussionist). Often times, I'm listening to a wide variety of stuff but when I finally post in the "What are you listening to now?" thread, I go with the moment, so some tracks/albums don't get submitted right then and there.

 

OH, forgot to address the Denon's. I have since sold 'em. The D5000 was my first costly headphone since coming from the speaker world. Loved the D7000 more when I brought that one in later. I enjoy seeing their hours listed as I bring newer cans online inside the listening room as a gauge, if you would.

Something about getting them "Hard wired" changed the presentation. Not necessarily better, rather sideways offering a different flav. The cans already have clear-as-a-bell mids. Hard wiring seems to have refined and enhanced some of the info in the middle like Guitar, Synths and micro-detail like that. And Bass, Percussion seems to have become more integrated into the presentation, though it's definitely recording dependent. Guess I'm suggesting the cans have become a bit more refined and mellow all the way around. 

 

Only my environment is preventing me from fully appreciating my listening sessions. Currently, my sessions are often marred by lots of street noise and activities outside. Moving to a quieter neighborhood in September, so very excited! In this hobby, backgrounds, room design and the like matter greatly.

Its both, really.  They need a lot of voltage to drive the peaks, but there has to be a substantial amount of current behind it, or the voltage will never get to where its supposed to go (current limit clipping).
