I hope with all this effort, YoYo Joker could never turn back from Head-Fi.

 

Legit question however, anyone used a LD balanced amp for the HD580/600s? How do they pair, and any comparisons with the La Figaro?

 

I can never! you guys are the most helpful guys ever :)

 

and Its true that

 

"Welcome to Head-Fi and Sorry about your wallet" :tongue:

 

I have made up my mind for the HD600's:atsmile:

HE-500 is a lot less grainy than the HD600, but doesn't feel as involving.

LCD2 has better quality and lower bass response, maybe a bit darker?

 

Mate the comparisons you are searching for are readily available on other threads/discussions and maybe even somewhere inside this thread. Search for more information before asking :D This way you know the cans better and we know your preferences/concerns better

Maxvla (aka Chris) used to own a LD MKVI and he has HD600's.  I doubt he's ever compared that amp to a La Figaro, but you might P.M. him and ask him.  

I know he's a big fan of balanced amplification and commented to me at the Austin meet that he regrets having sold the LD.   Also, there is a LD MKVI thread in the amp section, where you'll no doubt find comments comparing to other amps.

I'm not looking for their direct comparison, I know that's readily available. I'm looking for their comparison when driven by a high output impedance OTLs.

Low impedance cans that are not sensitive like an HE-500 are not a good match for a high impedance OTL tube amp. The results will be dismal.

I plugged hifiman 500's and lcd's into my crack amp.  Not a good pairing.  not really made for each other.

missed the above post.. what he said..

Thanks guys, I guess if I am going to stick with WA3 HD600 is my best bet.

You can't go wrong with HD600 especially for movie scores.  Its overall sound is "right" with forward vocal placement without excessive bass or treble.

Guys this is such a bargain

Looks like they sold already.  Out of curiosity what was the posted asking price?   A few years ago $150 was the going rate for a clean used pair...now I see $200 most of the time.

post #5876 of 17153

Wow.

 

I remember it was $120 or $150

post #5877 of 17153

Cool.  That's probably fair considering one of the pads is separating. A new pair of pads runs about $50 with shipping from Sennheiser USA.   Having been discontinued in 07 you see (esp on eBay) these going for $250 and up sometimes.  But these were in production for a very long time and there are tons of them out there.

First time poster here!

 

I recently purchased a Schiit Magni/Modi and a used pair of HD 600s. Needless to say, I'm very impressed. I'm coming from an HD 448 with a CMoy pocket amp; I'm hearing things I didn't even know were there on most tracks I've listened to on the HD 600.

 

I should add, a friend of mine purchased a pair of HD 650s last week and listening to both side by side from the Schiit stack, I think the 600s have slightly better highs. With that said, I have EQ'ed them to add a little bump to the lower frequencies to match my listening preference and they handled that surprisingly well.

 

And dat marble...I love it!

I had the same observations when comparing both cans and bought the HD600's. I do the same, EQ up the bass to taste. I got better results, for myself, doing that than getting the HD650s as its treble is recessed compared to its mids. The HD600's are more sensitive and easier to amp.

Don't you think that these combo are too bright? Or a little bright? Or you totally love them?
