Thanks for your reply snip3r77. I decided to keep them though the dealer offered a return.

So how is the sound? I like my 6080 GEC very much!

post #1908 of 2404
I like its depth and layer. The non-aggressive highs and articulated bass make the music enjoyable, especially before bed time.

I have several pairs of 6080GEC and after inspection, never found the cross you mentionned. Maybe it's due to the date of manufacture or maybe something else. I appreciate their qualities and somewhat rejoin what you have found. Plus I must say they have incredible good quality because none of mine hum at all, and I have a wide sample of them.

Quick question.  I am looking at the Crack w. Speedball vs this 339. There's been a number of comparison between these two. The crack w the free speedball upgrade is a lot lower cost due to the DIY nature. 

 

Here's what I'm not understanding (apologies) that I would appreciate help with. 

 

The Crack amp is supposed to be high impedence only (i.e. Sennheiser HD650, HD 800 etc) and not work with lower impedence such as the Hifiman HE-500 

 

Yet in another review, I see that the 339 takes from 25-600 ohm headphones. 

 

May I ask why the Crack does not do that but the 339 does?  I thought both were similar based on what I read?   

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

The base is OTL but the design and components are completely different. I can confirm the 339 can do a lot more headphones than the Crack. The HE-500 in example is horrible with the crack while I love it with the 339.

If you had both like me you would easily find out the crack is only good for high impedance headphones, it's perfect for sennheisers and Beyers though. Terrific sounding, can't compliment it enough. the sound however is completely different from the Lafigaro house sound.

 

I'll leave the techie talk to someone who knows what he's talking about redface.gif

Ultrainferno, Thanks for the incredibly quick response. Much appreciated. Currently have the HE-500 but believe that the HD-800 would be my end point headphone if my budget can handle that as I have to sell off some other items to fund it including my solid state amp and possibly the HE-500. (Fiscally responsible....:) Two questions: 1. How is the sound completely different? I like the HE-500 over the HD650 (which i also like a lot) for example due to the much better transparency, speed, clairy - and yet lack of a sharp bright fatiguing sound. 2. I can get the Crack with Speedball upgrade for under $280 and a few hours of labor. The 339 will run $660 to $750. That's a very different price category. However, the 399 will be very flexible in that it can handle just about any impedence. So that makes it a tought one - value or flexibility. Of course, if I stay with only the HD800 and nothing else, then the Crack is very viable. Appreciate you guys talking me through the process.... UL
