The change within the first few hours is very real; after that, who knows. There will never be a consensus.

Oh well, I've got birthday money to spend on anyways so it's off to scour sites for good customs. 

 

I actually bought the HD650 cable, had it shipped to a good DIY headfier and had them reterminate it for me. PM me if you want his name. Not sure how much he'll charge you, but he did a fantastic job!

Isn't it remarkable that "burn-in" almost always results in BETTER SQ?  Why don't components ever "burn-out"?  This alone seems to indicate to me that most of the phenomenom is simply adaptation.

What's the cheapest DAC cum amp that can be paired with HD 600? I wonder if Aune X1 can do the job? And what other headphone that I should compare with this headphone, open or closed... Looking for upgrade from my FA-003, listening to all sort of genre. Mostly metal, rock, pop, and classic.

Hi! guys! I have a question here. How d it work when I put my musical fidelity v-can and hd600 together?! Is the v-can too weak to free the potential of the cans?! if let you choose from 1-10 as the levels how the capability of hd600 be carried out, which will you give when with a v-can. Thanx!

I did not like them with my Xcan V8.  It did not power them well.  When I paired them with an Asgard, it was a whole different story.  The Asgard is not an expensive amp, and likely there are better, but I'm not going to find out.  My wallet is safe because I am very satisfied as is.

How about with Magni Modi?

The Asgard 1 and Magni are very similar. Magni being a little brighter IMHO. The Modi is a very good DAC for it's price point. I have all three and use them with my modded HD580s. I liked the Asgard so much I sold the Magni and Modi stack. I just use my HiFimediy Sabre DAC now.

madwolfa just replaced his drivers because they were worn out (a couple pages back). But it usually takes a long time before that happens.

My first post in here after being so long as a silent reader.. this is just to show my gratitude to HD600, and how i always impress to how HD600 could singing..

 

combine with burson 160D, using stock cable of HD650, i love it!

OMG!!! just received the bottlehead crack + speedball i ordered, i've never thought music could sound this good.. i started to tear up as a unstoppable reaction to the experience, i almost can't listen to it as i feel i'm unworthy to hear these sounds that are floating around me so ethereal. BY THE STARS! literally taking my breath away.

 

listened to around 5 songs on it so far and just wow, wow, wow! mindblowing.

 

don't even know how to describe it except heavenly or ethereal.

 

listening to Sugar Ray - Spinning Away from the beach soundtrack atm and it's transcendent. :O

 

just had to vent somehow to my reaction from just now hearing this for the first time.

 

humbled.

seriously! i thought it wouldn't live up to the massive hype, i knew it would be great just didn't think it would be as mindblowing as some have described but it's beyond anything i imagined.

mine has been slightly modified by the previous owner and have a good cable though so i'm not sure what extra effects that has from the standard basic version but whoa... i know sometimes people overreact when they first get something new (myself included) but this isn't the case for this time. no exaggeration. ethereal transcendental experience.

 

afraid to even listen to 2 of my favorite snow patrol songs, i might pass out lol. (purposely over exaggerated that time :P )

going for it, if i don't respond in 10min i passed out.

haha i made it through, amazing on both songs. run and chasing cars.

around 8-9 songs in i already need a break. sorry to everyone for making it seem like you have to get one of these but i had to let the excitement and energy out. :O

 

one negative thing i did notice is the heat, people weren't lying when they said tube amps got hot.

LOL again. The Crack doesn't even get that hot for a tube amp. Other amps REALLY get hot!
