I also think that the pads make a difference (from grado modding) but i usually dont judge a headphone critically til its had at least a few hours of pink/white and brown noise through it
Change the cable first ..use HD650 cables at minimum upgrade since you already had goods headphones..
mine is using cardas .. love it .
Food for thoughts..
once a upon a time one seller tell me to upgrade my senns cable to cardas which cost ~ US 250 inclusive tax.
i was reluctant at first but i did trust this seller toa certain extent . below are my conversations with him
Seller :Did you know cardas cable?
Me: I know. Cardas use to make after market cable & pretty much well know in US for selling hign end cables.
but i use MIT coz its cheaper
Seller: Did you know why john cardas ( well known Cardas company ) venture headphones cable market ?
Me: Dunno ..shoot me
Seller :One day john cardas daughter brought home a new pair of headphones .
While she was listening to it, john cardas asked her to let him hear the headphones .
He was so disastified with the sound coming from the headphones.
Soon, i think asap, he went back to his company & make new cable for it.
He then hook it to the headphones & listen to it and only then he is satisfied .
Me: Okayy.. what does it has to do your suggestion
Seller : The headphones that John Cardas daughter brought back is HD600 .
He himself specially made the cable for the headphones.
The morale of this story is that ;
-HD600 quite a quite significant impact on John Cardas for him to venture aftermarket cables for headphone
-If HD600 is not impressive enough, he would not let his Cardas company to venture into aftermarket cables for headphones
-You hardly go wrong with cardas cable for upgrade, as for me this Cardas guy is a genius.
I once google youtube & found out that in his listening room , the speakers that he is using is magneplanar speakers which is well known for its nuetralish character.. I know because I own one of them. Neutral ness is the character of Hd600.. See the connection…
