Due to my sleepyness, I read above statement as "Beats in all areas in my opnion." And I was :eek:

 

BTW, HD6000 considered mid-fi, so which line up is Sennheiser high end headphone? Is it really good? I just wondering.

Well, the HD600 was high end until the HD800 came along... I wouldn't worry about 'labels'. ~Its all about scalability and the HD600/650 both scale well into summit-fi.

Indeed. HD600 is a timeless classic and one of the best in it's price category! :)

Anybody here listened to the HD600  or HD650 with a MAD EAR +HD

 

Wondering how this combo may sound

I did some reading on the TH600.  It had a lot of good reviews.  Like you said, the leak might be a problem.  I need a bit better noise isolation.  Alpha dog might be in the same tier as TH600.  I also read about the Signature Pro.  Only if I could audition them all at a local store.  Are the Alpha Dog really that great?  6 Weeks is a long wait.

I would agree but to my ears they are complementary and I think HD600 is a better all-rounder.

There is something magical in HD600s and its value is pretty low so I will probably keep both.

I don't think the HD6000 is out yet, but I think once it's available it'll be a real humdinger. 

Yes.I'm having fun with your typo .:happy_face1:

What about the Bottlehead Crack? And how does the Crack connect to a computer?

dun think u can use it as a straight amp... u need usb/ optical input from a computer.

but u can use it as a dac and hook the crack as an amp though.

Completely disagree here. Especially considering the price point. When I tried the 700. I was more then unimpressed. Weak bass, and the balance was all off. The upgrade path should be 600 to 800 for an actual improvement that's worth it. And some with both still reach for the 600. IMHO of course. The 700 is a good can, but not worth the price.

It can't be true :angry_face: I just looked on J&R's website and they show the HD600's as sold out and Discontinued.

Holy crap. That can't be. Not when there are so many others they could get rid of.

I just checked Sennheiser's web site and it doesn't as discontinued.

Well that a retailer stop to commercialise a product don't mean that it's discontinued by the manufacturer , but the "discontinued can be misleading at jr.com .

post #5354 of 17469
Here's another dealer listing the HD600 as discontinued http://www.musiciansbuy.com/SENNHEISER_HD600_HEADPHONES.html

I want these as my next phones but don't have the money right now. The Sennheiser site doesn't say that they are going away, but the manufacturer isn't likely to make such an announcement pre-Christmas. Is there anyone who has an inside source?

I don't know about the Alpha Dogs but I'm planning on upgrading my mad dogs to them when I can and that is an even longer wait. Meanwhile I'll slum it with my TH600s as my primary closed can. I used it on a train full of people the other day with bass heavy trance music on pretty loud and didn't get any stares so I think it's leaks but not enough to be an issue in the situation.
