It's my second night with my new HD600s and I would like to drop my humble opinion in a few lines. First thing I should say: I'm coming from RS 170 (sennheiser, wireless), so this is or at least should be a major step forward. Second thing: I listen directly from my laptop, FLACs, mostly indie and electro (although the latter part may not be relevant).
First few tracks I was impressed, loved the sound. Then I started to be tempted by the equalizer. And now I know for sure that I'm not hearing what I should be hearing for the 300EUR HD600s.
I'm currently waiting for an Audio GD FUN purchased from a fellow head-fier. I really hope it will blow away my urge to use the EQ. Will it be night and day?!
Let me explain the urge of using the EQ: I feel that the sound isn't deep enough, it's "flat", not profound, like coming from my car's stereo. It's not the case with all the tracks, but I feel like that about too many tracks. Again, all FLACs. Take for instance Lights Out, Words Gone by Bombay Bicycle Club: I'm tempted to listen to it loud, or have some extra mids and lows from the eq.
On a distinct topic, considering the dac/amp mentioned above, does anyone have solid arguments for going the extra mile to HD650s? Or would the difference in sound be worth less than the 50 EUROs price difference?
