I wouldnt mind hearing those 555s, actually - ive never heard them modded

well they will sound awesome once they are burned in.  i just bought them brand new like a week ago and did all these mods.  once they are burned in they will sound great.  i will even sell them for 100 cash to someone since i have the ad700 and dont really need 2 pairs.  would like them to go to someone who will appreciate the mods.  have all original stuff with them too.

hmm, 3 hours away.  if i find a friend to come with i'd be up for it.  but honestly no one appreciates headphones like i do so i doubt i will make it.  all i want to do is hear the hd600 or hd650's hooked up to a bottlehead crack amp or a good amp.

It has been quite some time since the HD650 have not made an appearance at an NYC area meet. Even the infamous "portable meet" of several years ago saw the HD650 present when the crew took a walk to the apple store where they found the HD650 for sale.

yeah id figure they'd be there but i'd like to see the sound with the bottlehead crack amp.

This seems like the right place to ask..anyone know any place in the NY area where they have a good selection of phones you can go in & demo?  I'm basically trying to make my first purchase of cans and I don't want to go wrong between the SRH 840 & ATH M50s.  Closed 'cause I take the subways & buses everyday in the city.  Found a Guitar Center by my way that stocks both but they only let me open up the box of M50s.  Plus, I'm concerned I'm not getting an accurate SQ impression 'cause they weren't burned in yet.  

 

Maybe the two of 'em will be at this meet?

I think there's a good selection of headphones at the B&H store (www.bhphotovideo.com) in NYC.

the m50's are probably at the meet, they are popular.  if the hd650's are common at the meets, im sure there is a double amount of the m50's since that's all i ever hear about on this forum.

@ Uncle Erik

 

I'll check out B&H, don't know why I didn't think of that!  Thanks.

 

@jschristian44

 

 

They probably will be but I'd like to compare side by side with the 840s.  Hopefully someone that has them will speak up.

also, i want to make a correction to my earlier post.  i really want to test this setup out:

 

HD650's or HD600's with a Schiit Asgrad or Valhalla amplifier.

the cans are plentiful at these meets - and I know at the very least Ethan has an asgard, and will no doubt bring it if you ask him nicely :D

I'm not sure why so many people in this thread are assuming that a meet is going to happen, considering my post #1 was a question to the usual meet organizers in NY. I for one hope that there'll be a meet but I wouldn't say it's a given at this point in time especially when nothing has been posted by a potential meet organizer.

In addition to the B&H suggestion, there are also two AudioCubes stores in NYC (see audiocubes.com). AudioCubes sells mostly Audio-Technica headphones.

Check and see if J&R stocks these two, they have a pretty nice set up of cans in one of their stores.
