That amp has a kind of Mapletree look to it.  It's very pretty, but I think some nice, dark stained Cherry wood side panels or maybe even Ebony would compliment those sexy red transformers even more.

Or Alpha Dog too? I like to get a closed over ear headphone. Amperior is a good closed back but on ear is PITA for me.

I'm curious to know. I've just had the opportunity to demo the T50RP, and I'm wondering if it's signature is similar to the HD600.. Hmm..

T50rp is cooler sounding, more laidback...somewhat muffled...cottonwooled....

as if its begging for a good tweak, awaking by some DIYprofessionals :P

(or a bigbigkick in the butt by a giant ampppppp...thats my vague impression,

i owned it for a month n left it in the garage to rot, whilst i contemplate the complex task of taking off the earpads)

Sounds like a candidate for the FS forum. :D

Laidback is a big no no for me. But I don't like too aggressive sound neither.

Sounds colder, more refined (less grainy kind of feel), and not as emotional/involving mids.

 

p.s. Thanks for helping me and Lin out mate.

No, without modification they sound darker than the LCD2s and my HD650s.  However the resolution advantage of the T50RP is clearly superior than the HD600 - by mere fact that it is a planar.  By no means are they cooler than even the HD650.

 

Apparently there are many samples of HD650s going around that sound the same as the HD600.  When I hear a HD600 non critically, they sound just like my HD650s.

Just because something is Planar doesn't mean that the execution was so perfect. When I've compared the HD650 to the HD600 it was very easy to hear the difference, the HD600's came home with me.

Standard T50RP...perfect?  :confused: 

 

I thought I said I liked the HD600s.  :confused:

Compared the HD600 and maddogs side by side, the maddogs clearly lacked in something. I would go as far as to say something was missing, not just recessed or anything. on the other hand some things were more clear with the maddogs, due to difference in signature.

The HD600 has inert cup properties...the opposite of a closed or semi-closed headphones.

You did say, "However the resolution advantage of the T50RP is clearly superior than the HD600 - by mere fact that it is a planar."

Nether did I think they are superior nor did I think that being a planar means that makes them any better. I have listened to the T50RP and I also have a pair of HE-500's. I also have a pair of HD600's I don't think that the T50RP's are as good as either.

Yeah the HD600 is a much more coherent package than the stock T50RPs.

I wonder if the Bunyip has a pair of HD600's and what he amps them with? I was wondering how much of a premium do you pay for cans, Down Under. I know you guys get overcharged for a lot of things.
