Personally, I thought the Magni was too bright for the HD600, FWIW.

Anyone got a broken headband? I'm looking for a "Made in Ireland" plastic insert... Anyone?

post #4053 of 17649

Not sure if I should get the 598 or the 600

What kind of amp do you have, what kind of files do you listen to and what kind of music do you listen to?

Is that insert absolutely necessary, or is it just cosmetic? The Sennheiser logo/text on my headband is really worn and looks weird, but the headband assembly costs more than the drivers, so I don't think I'll be replacing it just for cosmetic reasons.

Have you tried contacting Senn themselves? They might hook you up seeing as how it's a little bit of plastic...

I don't plan on getting a too expensive amp, maybe around 100-150$ on it and I listen to a variety of music that isn't bass heavy but usually higher vocals or neutrals. And I generally listen to aac files.

I'd get the highest quality files you can (Lossless), but unless you're running w/ a lot of 128kbps, I'd recommend the HD600 with a JDS Labs Objective2, Schiit Magni or Fiio E09K. You can't go wrong!

Yes, they only have the complete headband replacement.. not that tiny bit.

From what I can tell it's sole purpose, aside from stating where the phones are made, is to keep the headband cushion securely in place so it doesn't slide around.

Not that necessary, it's just the headband padding slides in there without anything holding it on one side. And I'm of a nitpicking type, always annoying when something is "missing".

 

I remember my cat was playing with that thing, I had no clue what was it and just binned it into the trash can...Only after couple months I've noticed that it was in fact that plastic insert... LOL.

I know exactly how you feel. I did something similar recently, but a tad more annoying. I copied over my entire music collection (over 100GB) to my new iMac iTunes library. And since iTunes makes it's own copy on import, I went ahead and deleted the original local copy. In doing so I didn't realize I had the whole iTunes folder selected also. Of course I didn't realize that until I had emptied the trash.

You'd probably have better luck contacting Sennheiser directly. Not sure if the grilles are something most people have on hand, but I could be wrong.
