I am lacking in a good open headphone though. frown.gif

Unless Hifiman somehow magically improved the soundstage on their open headphones... I'll be passing.

And... you did say you want first dibs on an adapter "just in case," right? You're getting one, dude. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. You're in denial lol

Didn't they improve it somewhat with the 560? I mean that's what I've read...

If its only "somewhat," I'll definitely be passing...

Sorry, but I'm a soundstage nut when it comes to open headphones tongue.gif

I saw an ad for PSB headphones at the side of my screen and investigated. Anyone have experience or opinions? They have a detachable cable too, so it looks like the BoomPro would be an option.

Sorry, but I'm a soundstage but when regarding to open headphones.

As a soundstage guy I totally understand that.

I hate congested soundstage [closed headphones...] but I can take a moderately sized  soundstage if it is 1] expansive 2] airy 3] well separated.and 4] well imaged.

The K612 don't have a large stage IMO, but it is big enough, well separated, mostly expansive  and has good imaging [3/4]

The 560 now ticks all 4, with noticeably improved imaging, so I think I'll be happy there. I never found the SS of the HE-6 troublesome, even if it wasn't too great, the separation, air and spaciousness more than make up for it IMO. Talking purely soundstage, YMMV.

 

This is not final until they arrive at the doorstep of course I am just following other people's impressions.

So the ATH-M50 is on sale like everywhere the last couple days.  Thay're now down to $75 for a refurb (with 1-year warranty).  Are these worth picking up?  I know there's a new one out, but a $200 can for $75 seems like it might be worth checking out...

Conq, you have no idea what I went through to find a decent pair of closed headphones and IEMs because of soundstage. I think I'm quite happy with the coices I have, now, though.

When it comes to open headphones, however, I hold high standards. The soundstage size is critical because it, actually, is the sole purpose of me having an open headphone... for a nice, open, "out of head" experience. True, the K612's soundstage is not massive... but good enough for some. In stock form, it's quite similar in width and depth to that of the SRH1840. Add some angled pads, however, and the soundstage noticeably increases and compares to the likes of the other AKGs... which inevitably made them keepers, for me.

Yeah, well, I value all the expects I've mentioned equally and from what I've read the 560 does very little wrong.

I am actually thinking the soundstage might be good,

As said, I will definitely do a K612-560 comparison so if you're in doubts, I just might chime in, right?  :beerchug:

You can chime in... but I'all make sure to be absent on that day. Same way I plan on being absent when Axel sends out the T1 on tour.

No no no... that bug won't be biting me, again! Lol. It's a reason why I sometimes get in financial binds... frown.gif

PS: Give me some time to edit my posts! tongue.gif

They werent terrible for me. I used them to play silent hill 2 early last year and i enoyed them. But for competitive play, theyre not gonna work and they are
Mediocre in soundstage compared to a lot of the open headphones that mad lust has reviewed. Comfort also depends on the person. Especially the pleather

Music wise, i thought they were a good all arounder.
