Big Boi through Senn's? I guess you like your bass different than I.

 

Why not?

The HD800's bass is one of its best qualities IMO. It's subterranean and hits hard when called upon - and it's fast, nuanced and distinct instead of smeared, lumbering flab.

The HD650 doesn't dig as deep and its low end is characterised by that mid bass bloom but there is still good presence in that region. Through my system it's bass is taut and textured.

Have you heard the Senns through this system?

Just switched my setup from being a couchside setup that has been on an end table, to a more traditional desk setup. I just grabbed a desk and a chair from Staples. Cost me about $290 out the door. It's nothing too fancy, but it looks good and it works well.

Nice setup!  This looks so cozy.  Perfect for an evening listen.

It's quite different for me. I'm so used to listening to headphones while reclining on my couch. The problem there was that I'd fall asleep so easily while reclining on the couch. I'd listen to a song or two on an album and next thing I know it's an hour or two later, the music has stopped and I'm just waking back up. So instead of a couchside setup I wanted to try a desk setup with an office chair. Right now it seems very strange, but I think I'll get used to it. I definitely like the idea, and it seems to be the way most head fiers have their headphone rig setup. I've never seen anybody else on here with their setup on an end table next to a couch.

I would much prefer the end-table set up as my desk chair isn't all that comfy and with my computer there I'm always distracted by things, like this site. All my music is on my computer and my DAC is USB, so I need to be near the computer. I'd love to get a recliner near the computer. My non-computer set-ups are my Ipod + Fiio E11 and my A/V System.

Well, my body was distracted by being to comfortable on the couch. It was so comfortable I'd fall asleep when I really wanted to stay awake and listen to music. The chair I got seems pretty comfortable though, but doesn't recline like the couch does. It was a $170 chair on sale for $99. So it isn't crazy expensive, but it wasn't super cheap either.

I have my WA6- 325is/RS1i's next to my recliner for when I want relax and really enjoy the music (without falling asleep). At my desktop I have the Magni/Modi combo- 80i's for while I'm on the computer, but I find myself not listening as much because I'm involved with what I'm doing on the computer.

My rig is beside the couch in my cave.  I feed my main stereo with the Uberfrost along with my Lyr.  It allows for head-fi and full-fi.  I've been known to fall asleep in head-fi mode.  :biggrin:

I often fall asleep in head-fi mode... Or nearly fall asleep, then I turn my gear off and go to bed ;) its easy to fall asleep with the soothing sound of the Final Audio Design Piano Forte X-G :D

Yep, last night, had the La-Z-Boy chair propped up, legs extended...snoozefest, while watching the Aussie Open and listening to some tunes. biggrin.gif

I usually put something mindless to view on the tv while playing tunes.  I can feel a late nighter coming on now.  :atsmile:

A few updates to my system, computer is in the progress of incremental upgrades such as a new monitor and keyboard, still need to get a new mouse. Also a new headphone to add to the mix(HD 380 Pro), only showing the three headphones I use the most, not sure what to do with my other headphones. Wish I had a roomier and nicer desk, but it's a dorm supplied desk.
