Hello, im a longtime reader but first time posting here and relatively new to the audio world. Im no way an audiophile but have appreciation for sound and music.
Thanks Mad Lust for creating an awesome guide. I've been reading all your reviews for 3 weeks and am still fascinated by your reviews.
Got a concern:
I've had the Steelseries Siberia v2 for two years now and I've just bought a new pair of Senns HD650. When I listened to them side by side, I could hardly tell the difference except that the Senns are BARELY better than the v2 in terms of Richer sounds and being more detailed in the mids. I've also noticed the v2 are slightly more muddied in their mids and highs but their bass is very low. The 650's bass is punchier but not as emphasized as v2.
Im a bit disappointed with the comparison because its not THAT big of a difference. However, I've only compared them to my normal onboard soundcard in my pc and not an amp yet. I currently do not have a headphone amp, but when I purchase one, will I see an even more big of a difference? Also, the HD650's are new so they're not 'burned in' much. Would that help as well?
btw, Im thinking of getting the Schiit MAGNI/MODI combo. Will that be ok for my new Senn's?
Thank you very much guys, much appreciated.
