Heres a pic of me with 650's from a few years ago..

 

 

(ok its a face warp.. But you get the picture! BIG!)

 

I actually had the same photo on my iPad2 - same distortion effect, wearing HD600s, and yes my room is blue - but I think I've buried it in one of my backup portable HDDs. I think I should dig through them tomorrow.

^^ I've had a lot of fun with facewarp!

I must have a skinny head because I've never had any clamping issues whatsoever with my HD600. The DT880 Pro's clamp a lot tighter and even those are easily bearable for me without discomfort. I think most everyone would find the DT880 Pro fairly "clampy" but with the Senns it seems to have more to do with the size of your particular head. For me the clamping force is perfect, right between my DT880 Pro and K712. Just the other night I had a particularly long gaming session and found myself wishing I had plugged in the HD600s instead of the K712s which can start to feel like they're falling off your head a bit.

I can't fit in anything less than the very largest hat sizes, but I feel no excessive clamping or discomfort at all with the HD600. I need to wear them on the ninth click on both sides though.

If I wear them slightly tighter, I don't find the pressure on the ears increases noticeably, but there's more pressure on the top of my head.

At the setting I've settled for, I find these as comfortable as any headphone I've ever worn.

Seems my question was deleted with the cable argument stuff without any notification.

 

I love my HD600, anyone experienced a closed headphone with a similar sound?

If you don't mind a 'budget' pair - then I'd suggest the Brainwavz HM5 / Fischer FA-003 / Lindy / Digitech pro Monitor <-> all of these are basically the same OEM headphone.

 

Here's a link to source in Oz for the Digitech (http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=AA2065)

 

Here's my review of the HM5 (has plenty of pics) - http://www.head-fi.org/products/brainwavz-hm5-studio-monitor-headphones/reviews/6201

 

Hope it helps.  Probably closest I've heard - but at the same time can't really get to the level of the Senns.  Not bad for a budget can though.

 

I'm on the tour list for the Alpha Dogs - so might have them in 2-3 weeks or so.  They might go close (Mad Dogs were a little too dark IMO).

Thanks a lot for the reply. So you've listened to them? How is the isolation? That's why I'm looking for a closed can to compliment my HD600. Cheers

 

Ah just read in your review that isolation is good. My mistake.

The Beyerdynamic DT235 is a great beater can and has a similar non-fatiguing sound signature to the HD600. You can get them for ~ $45. They're obviously not up to the level of the HD600 but they're closer than you would think. I highly recommend them to everyone because of how cheap they are and the fact that you can toss them around or throw them in a bag without worrying about them breaking. In terms of sound quality for the price they are probably the best headphones I have and they continue to shame every comparable cheap headphone I stack them up against.

 

You can get them from Amazon Warehouse Deals for ~$45, sometimes lower.

Thank you. I'll look into them. I actually live in Australia and they're priced around $70 AUD/USD here.

Still I think my budget will allow me to look within the 200-300 price range.

The Ultrasone Signature Pro is, by far, the best closed back can I've heard. It gets very close to HD800 performance. But it obviously costs more than your budget.

The V-Moda M100s are great cans, especially for the price, but they have a very different sound signature to the HD600s, with emphasized bass.

I think the closest match is probably the Shure SRH840s, which also offer excellent value, leak less sound than just about every other can I've ever tried, and are incredibly robust. The sound quality is excellent and their are fairly neutral. They aren't up to the level of the HD600s, but are still quite good.

Best regards,
Adam

Forgot about the 840's!

 

I'd agree with Adam - these would be another option, and IMO better than the HM5 (and clones)

post #4815 of 8996

As an owner of both the SRH840 and HD600, I can confirm that the two have almost similar sound signatures. :D

 

Both have this midrange emphasis with a non-offensive treble, which make them stellar for long listening sessions. The Shure doesn't have the detail retrieval and airiness of the Senn, but tonally-wise they're really close.
