The Neco amp that's pictured there is the best portable amp I've heard with the HD600.  I've got a pair of ADA4627 opamp in it.

Great photo. And they are great amps - Neco is the man! I've owned 2 of his amps, a version 1 portable and his V2.1 full size.

Any grain in the HD600 & HD650 is due to the poor cable.

 

Get an after market cable such as Cardas, etc.

:beerchug:

 

I've had the V3 .. and now the V4... the dual-mono architecture is fantastic.. stereo separation is as impressive as advertised.  The amps reminds me of a beefier, more spacious UHA-6S MKII... the HD600 & HD800 ate it up!

Yeah, Sennheiser really needs to upgrade their quality control measures to keep grain out of their cables. That or build a factory further away from those barley and buckwheat farms.

But it could be three times as ugly and I still wouldn't care. I love the way they (and the HD600s) sound. Like I always say, my eyes can't see my ears, so what do I care? ;-)

 

   Thats why my hd800 is from Colorware..

   Repainted the original so that it can look better than the original

   HD600 --no need . But i still think HE500 more attractive

What are the technical properties of the Cardas or any other aftermarket cable that will improve the sound?

That's why I'm still hesitant on buying any custom cable :p

 

Then again, I won't be able to confirm the existence of such a difference until I've got one myself. Oh, decisions.

I've got a soldering iron...............:wink_face:  and I know how to use it.

Looking at the prices, I could quit my day job and make cables.

Oh how I wish I have the skills and the guts to cauterize my own cable.

All thanks to the increased dynamic range of current digital cameras, or processing. In a room that one might keep darker than usual to minimize stimuli that distract from listening, it can be anywhere from subtle blue to black - the marble effect doesn't really come out unless you're looking at it up close.
