The HD600 is not that power hungry and an OTL amp could power it perfectly.

 

The Taboo is a nice option but I would only recommend it if you were interested in cans like the HE-500 or HE-6. The T1 and HD600 can get by with out 100mW-200mW, so having 6W on tap is a bit much for them.

 

+1

 

HD 600 would be closer to a T1 sound than HD 650s, another option to consider would be the K701 or the DT 880, although they have less bass than the hd 600 i think. 

 

the HD 650 sounds nothing like the T1, completely opposite because the HD 650 is dark and has a much warmer sound with less treble emphasis.

That doesn't sound right at all. I've never tried to drive mine from a laptop, but it seems you would have to crank the volume to get much sound. That would cause bass distortion, but 'rattling'? I would try a decent amp, and if remains like that I would return it to the seller if you just got them. They should take care of you if they are an authorized Beyer dealer.

the amp is shipped from china so i can't sit around waiting for it, i plugged it straight from the laptop. like i said, the sound is very detailed and open and 3D like comparing to my D5k, but there's a slight rattling with the bass from the right channel .. oh i wish i could fix it my self, i really don't wanna send it back and wait for couple of weeks ... thanks anyway

Sounds like you have got a pair that have been sent back and resold as an open box,I would get them sent back and get a refund why you can, i new they sounded a bit dodgey calling a faulty set nearly new it's just a con,don't be conned by them and get a refund why you can i know i would! DONT WASTE $750 ON FAULTY CRAP

that's more like it, when i puff the driver it stops then it returns after 2 minutes. i don't know how to disassemble the driver, is there a thread or something like that about it ?

post #2484 of 10477

id say start by taking off the pad and looking around in there.  i dont know how to open the actual headphone up though. im sure someone does.

My DT880 600 and 990 600 played the sweep with no issues. I'll be receiving a new replacement pair and will be running the same test.

If he takes them apart and can't put them back together again he won't get no refund,it's not like they are grado sr60i or something that cost under $100 he payed $750 for them someones laughing somewhere don't you think and it's not medo!

Amazon gets the Watchdog treatment

Posted 09 December 2008 10:00am by Graham Charlton with 2 comments

Amazon Marketplace was featured on Watchdog last night, with complaints about dodgy sellers and the availability of pepper spray on the site the target of the consumer programme.

Watchdog (on iPlayer) found several instances of customers buying items on the Marketplace, receiving emails purporting to be from Amazon, paying by transfer service Moneygram and not receiving the products.

Some of the details should have set alarm bells ringing for the buyers, such as getting a 40" Sony Bravia TV at £300, being asked to take the payment outside of Amazon's system, as well as the lie that the website's payments system was down.

Clearly, a savvier online shopper would and should have smelled a rat here, so it is hard to feel too much sympathy, but the fact that people tend to trust Amazon and it is linked to these transactions perhaps makes buyers less suspicious than they would normally be.

It could be argued that Amazon doesn't make it clear enough that people are buying some items from third parties, rather than direct from the retailer. Items from Amazon Marketplace are integrated into the site search results and also given the benefit of Amazon's detailed product pages.

Shoppers unaware of the distinction may think they are buying direct from Amazon, not a third party, as in this search result for the Wii Fit board, an item that is proving to be tricky to track down this Christmas:

Amazon product page for Wii Fit

Aside from the fairly steep price (it can be bought elsewhere for much less), the only indication that the seller is not Amazon itself is the relatively small text under the price and just above the 'add to shopping basket' button.

I think Watchdog could perhaps have spent a little more time giving viewers tips about how to avoid such scams; checking sellers' feedback scores more closely and never paying for items off the site.

However, having such unscrupulous sellers on its site and the resulting bad publicity on TV is not good for the Amazon brand. The Marketplace is clearly important for the online retail giant, accounting for a third of its sales.

Another online marketplace, eBay, was the subject of a Watchdog item about the sake of counterfeit goods on its site, something Amazon was also criticised for last night.

On this occasion, eBay was held up as an example of how it should be done. According to Max Vetter of the Counterfeiting Intelligence Bureau:

"Compared with eBay, Amazon doesn't seem to have any system in place that could quickly remove counterfeit goods from its sites".

Buyers do need to be a lot more wary than the people shown on BBC last night, but Amazon should still be taking steps to remove dubious sellers and items from its site, and also educating users about how to use the Marketplace.

What do you think? Should Amazon be more vigilant over what is displayed on its site or do buyers need to be more careful?

When you pop the pads off, you will see a plastic ring aroudn the driver that holds it in place. You have to use a small jewelry flat head screwdriver to pop out the ring. You have to look for some indents where the screw driver can be lodged and once you find them just gently pry them out.

 

Sometimes hair can be on the backside of the driver and even the internal wiring in the cup can cause the vibrations if the wire it touching the driver. Look around the inside the driver, gently blow on the back of the driver to free any particulates that may be there, and re-assemble the headphone. Give it a listen and see if the sound persists. 

 

Even blowing on the front of the driver may help to free any debris such as hair, from the driver. I don't know if the T1 or T70 have the sticky driver coating that the DT770-DT990 have, but it's worth a look to see if anything is stuck if they do.

 

I think I'll have to make a video on how to take apart a T1 for you guys, maybe even how to solder the wire in. What do you guys think?

I think you should check on the amazon website and see which headphones are going cheap and then do a video on them all to help the people on head-fi out!
