I just wish my Aune T1 less bright.

 

I'm wondering, is there any OTL tube AMP on USD 350 price range beside Crack and LF 336?

 

Why not the Crack and Darkvoice?

 

If you want less bright, maybe you should replace your HD 600 with the HD 650.

It is amazing how tastes differ.  If anything I personally find the HD600's, if anything, to dark and 'boomy'.  You know :deadhorse:.  Others call them them harsh.  

 

Go figure!  :beerchug: 

 

 

But seriously, the Crack is great with the HD600's.  Plus, it's a really fun build.

 Fair enough I guess. I agree that if you want to hear differences, you can.

My last word on the topic here.

Notice the boldened and font size in the quote.

 

If I were expecting a difference, you may or may not be correct.

Just because someone is expecting a difference does not mean that they are deluding themeslves when there is a difference. Otherwise, there would be no such thing as disappointment in this context.

 

Anyway, this is invalid in my case, as if you had taken the care to read and digest my post you would have noticed that I stated that I was a cable skeptic.

 

In your previous post:-

Oh yeah. It takes golden ears for this hogwash to work, that's right.

 

The only difference is Usain Bolt's achievements are measurable and observable and exist in the real world. While your observations and beliefs of having 'golden ears' are just... Nothing.

Can't you believe that some of us have better hearing acuity than others?

How do you measure hearing with a stopwatch?

 

Do dogs have more acute hearing than humans?

 

I had occasion to correct a fellow workmate who had a Sony CD recorder and mini-CD player that came as a bundle package deal, where he reckoned that there was NO difference in the quality of the sound presentation.

I asked him to play the same material through each. After he did so, I told him that the minidisk was grainier in it's sonic presentation. He called me a liar.

I then told him that I would turn my back and tell him which source was being used. He agreed.

Out of ten samples, I was 100% correct.

 

It seems that some of the skeptics are afraid to face the fact that they have less hearing ability than others.

 

I, personally do not have the ability to detect the soundstage of a particular headphone unless I really concentrate. I do not have the problem with speakers.

Do I criticise those who say those who say that one headphone has a wider stage, and another has a higher or deeper one? No, I do not.

I am well aware of my hearing abilities.

 

As a parting question, have you tried different cables in your system?

You owned! Haha... BTW, I believe in cable thingy. But I think it's pointless for those who can hear arguing there's a change with those who can't hear. And it's pointless too for those who can't hear arguing there's no change with those who can hear. In the end, you guys owned a great headphone, well at least for me HD600 is the best in term of SQ since that is most expensive headphone I afford. I just wish they have Beyer build. I love their ear cup.

Other (former and current) amps in my profile.  I think the LD MKIV is a great pairing.  Plenty of voltage swing.  Lots of tube options.  Very clean background.  Can be tuned to suit.

 I believe in "life" in music .I believe "emotion " in music . I even believe music can touch my "soul".

 i guess i am just a believer .hehe

 

if you go for high end, you may end up in no end.

if you go for musicality, you may end up in nirvana.

 

IMO  , HD600 is a very musical cans so one  need to find the correct rig combination .to unlock its potential

 

One way to break the barrier is  by changing its stock cable to a better one - Again this was only my opinion

HD600 is the dynamic phone that always get the tonality of the sound right.  Other headphones sound either too forward, too laidback , too warm or too bright.

even your STAX?

post #5129 of 9665

I said " HD600 is the dynamic phone.." is to mean in the dynamic headphone range , hd600 has the best tonal balance.  That doesn't include electronstatic stuff.

However for stax , we have to be carefull in system matching otherwise the tonal balance may be off with the wrong matching too.
