Yes, I'd go along with that. The SRH840 is very good value and the weight of the sound does share a bit of a family resemblance to the HD600. But the SRH840 apparently grew up in a much rougher neighborhood.

Thanks for all the info!! Will be getting one soon :D

Balanced cables came now I can use my speaker amps to drive my HD600s

 

Pretty good quality stuff

 

Sorry a bit dusty. The XLR connects to the speaker terminals at the back. The Audio GD 15.32 is the DAC.

The Topping TP60 is the amp 

 

Sounds better across the board.

Very nice pics, spurxiii.. how are you liking the HD600 off speaker taps?  I drive mine off the TBI Millenia (an impressively small, class BD speaker amp) w/ a resistor box (which allows the Millenia to see it's ideal '8 ohm' impedance, while shelving down the output power).  Off the Millenia, the HD600 has a phenomenal soundstage.  The sound, as a whole had, effortless quality to it... separation, detail, tonal accuracy.. it all came across as very easy to present.  I never knew just how deep and power the HD600's bass can sound, too.

I agree with everything you say and especially the bass is now quite phenomenal, the "grain" I experienced on the AudioGD amp running SE is all but gone. The amount of detail I get from the Topping is unbelievable for something so damned cheap. It's more than I hoped for.

I use the Audio Gd as the DAC/preamp so the volume knob on the Topping is under better control, that way no need for a resistor box

I m using the Cambridge 340a...it is too wide for my liking.
This topping is a sweet small size with similar wattage, nice!

Hello everyone, I recently experienced something and it involves the much debated C-word which more often then not sparks heated shouting matches instead of scholarly discussion, I hope to keep things more on the "this is what I've experienced side".

 

I recently purchased a budget Audioquest interconnect to replace the old junky one between my DAC and Crack Headphone Amp.  What I hear after switching is quite interesting.  I feel there is a more 3D soundstage, likely due to the much more refined midrange and treble.  While I appreciate this difference I now find the HD600s fatiguing.  Now I know what some of you are thinking, "HD600s...fatiguing...but the sennheiser veil...". Yeah well to me with the audioquest cable they seem more accurate sure but they are much less satisfying.  The bass has more or less sunk into the background, same goes for vocals.  I have also considered that this improved the resolution to the point my DAC (Nuforce HDP) now sounds too aggressive and the system is simply more revealing of the HDPs shortcomings, could this be a possibility?   Now it's only been a few days and I expect my brain will adjust to the sound in after a while but does this mean I should consider trying the HD 650?  Is there a way to keep the resolution and ditch the more fatiguing signature?

 

Feel free to share similar experiences/ideas/etc.

sounds like you should experiment with a different cable first.  cheaper, and you wont end up with that weird 650.

try the old rca on the left channel..and the new on the right channel.. just curious what u gonna hear.

My HD600 headband cracked today. I wasn't even over stretching them. Quite distressing. They are less than 1 year old so hopefully Sennheiser can help me out. 

post #4827 of 8809

geeezzz........heartbreakg...:confused_face:

post #4828 of 8809

Yeah. It's not toooo bad. They're still together and not completely snapped. If anything they've now lost the vice like grip they had before (trying to keep it positive)

post #4829 of 8809

Where did you get them? I'm sure Sennheiser will take care of you, they come with a 2 year warranty.

post #4830 of 8809
Bought them at a local HiFi store here in Adelaide called challenge HiFi. They're an official reseller so hopefully they can handle shipping etc for me. Yeah fingers crossed Sennheiser come through. 5th Sennheiser first time needing after sale support.
