I've noticed no difference in sound between "wasapi event" and previous versions of the wasapi plug-in, but a huge difference in memory use and general performance. Wasapi event fixed a memory leak that would slow my computer to a crawl.

Ha ha, just been shifting some boxes I had stored, and found a pair of HD 600's I thought I had lost in a house move years ago.  Its like a present from my past self! They sound pretty sweet.

Hmmm, I like the sound of that.  Now to go hide something.  

 

Or maybe look for things I can't seem to find.  Though that will probably drive me crazy.

 

Fine, I'll do nothing.  It's easier.  You almost got me!

Nice! I just found a CD I had no idea I had. Not as exciting though cool.gif

Hmmmmmm to go for a o2+odac or fiio e09k and e17. The research begins.

post #3861 of 8092

I'm thinking about getting the hd600 over the he-400 mainly due to the comfort and neutrality it bares over the hifimans, but I really want something that hits faster and has better imaging. Is there a good DAC and/or amp to pair with the hd600s to turn them towards the headphones I want?

post #3862 of 8092

In a word, no.

 

Don't get the HD 600.

The E09K is too dark w/ the HD600 imo. I think the O2 is a much better pairing.

I had the hifiman's before the hd600's and am very happy with the swap. While the Hifiman's do have a tighter bass (especially noticeable when listening to rock with snares) I enjoy the senn's so much more. The comfort is such a huge factor for me, I couldn't wear the hifiman's for more than half an hour/45 mins before getting uncomfortable. Also I've grown to like the natural sound of the senns :)

Hmm. The reason I'd swing for the fiio combo is that I can buy those locally in NZ. The O2 combo i'd have to get shipped overseas which if by chance i have to return them makes it very expensive and a major hassle :/

Amps and DACs may tweak the sound a little bit, but if you don't like the headphones, there's nothing you can do to change that. You should find a different headphone that suits your listening tastes.

In retrospect, I could probably get something faster and balance it out by equalizer and/or amping assuming the other headphones I wanted were comfortable enough for me

I owned a 99' ver HD600 and it sounds great, but the earpad is broken and I can't find a replacement..
