No, I don't have the HD600s.  Here in Australia, over the counter...this is how much I paid - cash - before I realised the benefits of head-fi.

 

HD650 = $600

K701  =  $800

D7000  =  $2300

 

Trying to find the right sound was starting to cost a lot without head-fi - let's not forget amps and dacs - retail - cash...I'd rather not think about it.

They were, however, very comfortable. 

 

Yeah rubbish, that's what I thought I implied.  But get this:

I bought the HD 600 about a month back and recently upgraded to the O2/ODAC combo and I love it!

 

I have a question about the gain switch, though; is there any point in using it with the HD 600? I'm guessing no as it seems like it just increases the volume to ridiculous levels to the point where the sound just ends up slightly distorted. I'm getting plenty of volume with the gain switch off and the volume knob at around the 11 o'clock mark.

 

Am I correct in assuming that if the sound is loud enough, it's generally better to use low gain? I recall reading that somewhere.

The gain is also impacted by the source output level. If you are experiencing the above then use the low gain...

Basically, use the low gain. If you aren't happy with the decibel levels (not sound quality) you're getting out of it, move to the high gain, but know you're introducing some grain with the change.

I paid over $300 for my DT770 250ohm. I thought I was getting a "deal" :(

D7000 for 2300bucks...?????? in aussie dollars???? oooommmmgggggg :confused_face:

 

==========

 

whenever i hit the HIGH gain switch , i felt the mids move forward.

It works for me on cans with V shaped signatures. eg D7k, Pro900

I also saw these earphones - I knew nothing of IEMS the - at Harvey Norman for $800...I bought them there and then.  They were Shure SE530s.

 

I figured I'd join the experience with fellow head-fiers that say no to bright and splashy hi-hats and cymbals, that do not sound tonally correct or volume wise.

Well if you're looking for the ridgy-didge headphone, you'll have to hit your kick once again and pick up an HD600. Kinda picture a Cockroach from Down Under wearing German cans.:D

That's just an excuse for a visit to the bottle shop followed by getting rotten and a Dingo's breakfast. A quick listen to an HD600 and some Vegemite and you'll be good to go again.

So you got rotten last night as well. Are you another one from Botany Bay out in the open at Bourke Street?

So how much did the Bushrangers get out of you for your HD600's? Why is everything so overpriced in God's Own Country?

Thinking....thinking....nope, not coming to me.   :L3000:

I had to explain to my girlfriend what a "U-BOLT" is - country slang for a U-turn.

 

I grew up in the country, so I'm full of it. 

post #6075 of 17660

Never heard that one...I'm a suburbinite...but it's always a pleasure to meet you country folks when I'm out in the bush.
