Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread - Page 273

Giulini's 1970s recording on DG is also something of a benchmark (and the SQ is very good).

Just replaced both drivers (with capsules) in my decade old HD600s with their newest revision (ordered from Sennheiser USA).

That made quite a bit of a difference! :)

Happy now.

What was wrong with the old ones? Or just wanted to replace them?

I think they've started sounding thin and harsh (too bright), leading to extreme fatigue even on lowest volume. I think it happened after I've tried to remove dust off them some time ago with blowing air (not a good idea)... Also diaphragm looks weird in one of them (dome is elevated and almost touches the capsule/housing) and it was a tad quieter than another, so the stereo imaging was messed up a little. I think it was damaged too. So I've decided to replace them both with latest and greatest Sennheiser has to offer (newest revision). The old ones were the original design (big brass ring) with black baffle plates.

Cool man! Wait until they burn in :) :) (if they haven't already)

He's had them for more than 2 hours so they're done burning in. ;p

Left them overnight pumping some dark drum'n'bass, that should do it. Didn't sound horrible from the start, though.

Yap, doing "Porcupine Tree - In Absentia (2010 2 x 180 g LP Reissue)" 24/96 FLAC right now! :atsmile:

I love the HD600s! I think the HD650s show even more finesse and sound tighter with better transients than the 600s. I've been using the now defunct Melos Tubed headphone amp/preamp in my system (SHA-1). I just upgraded my digital front end to the Bryston BDA-1 (wow!)

Your HD600 will open up some more after 100 hours of play, esp. in the treble range! LOVE Porcupine Tree - great headphone mixes. Be sure to check out the earlier pre-Atlantic records albums!

Try at least 100 hours...

post #4094 of 17132

f you don't have a copy - get Porcupine Tree's Stupid Dream. My favorite album from them!I

Mine didn't change one bit after the first couple of hours and even that period was most likely "brain burn-in". Don't expect them to change.
