I really should get a decal like this for my MBP. The Joker one is the one I've had my eye on for awhile.

I don't know. I picked the HD800 over the LCD 2.2 even though I listen to a lot of Bass Heavy EDM. I felt the HD800's bass just has more texture than the LCD 2 or HE-6. There was something about it.

My setup is now complete for a some time :) Also no that is not how I store my HE6. It was just for the picture.

Right now the HD800 is my favorite headphone and pretty much suits me perfectly. The HE-6 I haven't had much time yet since I'm using the D1 dac/amp until my Mjolnir returns but it will have to be realy good to surpass the HD800. When I have a fair comparison which will be with that amp then i will know but it will take something special to surpass the HD800.

Do you have a Gungnir on order? I bet your tune will change about the HD800's bass when you get that dac in your chain. The LCD-2's bass is a bloated fart cannon in comparison.

Sorry to stray from topic, but I do, in fact.  It hasn't shipped yet but should this week.   Then I will have the Gungnir / Mjolnir stack.  I am looking forward to trying the combo with all of my headphones.  Thanks for your input on what to expect though.

Did you buy your HE-6 used? Because that's the old v1 with heatshrink cable. I hate it, it touches my shoulders. Do you always have both headphones connected?

Yes I got mine used. I don't mind the old cable but I was not aware there were multiple cables. I had originally hoped I could run both at the same time but the two headphones I use with that amp do not have similar specs so one either runs too loud or not loud enough. I just had them both plugged in at the time.

Mine right now; not nearly as awesome of parts as some of the ones in here but oh well.

thats a great clean setup.

put those speakers on some cinder blocks or something

im a fan of those pioneers.  Killer small bookshelves.

 

which senn's are those?

post #9014 of 18625

hd 558s; cinderblocks.. are ugly though. I'm trying my hand at some woodworking this winter break with a friend. hopefully it doesn't look like a "5th grade arts and craft project" as he predicts it to turn out as.

I'm running a pair of those as rear surrounds in my home theater setup. I use these stands:

They come with plastic feet and carpet spikes.
