Senheisser cannot stamp out good old American capitalism...completely...:veryevil:

HD600's are truely Phenomenal and heavenly :)

 

I thank all Headfi-ers and HD600 owners for leading towards the right direction,

 

If not for you fellows, today I would had a DT880/HE400 and would be crying like a little girl :D

Oh thank jebus we saved you from the dread that is the HE-400 (obviously, I have strong impressions of that one).

He has been saved from eternal damnation? From what you say I'm glad I skipped the HE-400's. I was aiming higher anyway.

I know I've talked a fair amount of smack about the HE-400, but I am appreciative of the year I had with them before giving them up because it refined what I like and what I don't like.

Staging is similar on both, as is imaging.  Beyer (because of it's slightly brighter top end) can give the illusion of bigger stage, more space, better separation - but to me this is just an illusion.  Apply some EQ to the HD600 and it can do exactly the same.  The HD600 is still quite open - but the stage is very natural (not over-emphasised), and imaging is really good.  It's not expansive like the AKG K7xx series - but it is completely believable.

 

Couldn't one equalize the DT880 down and get a similar effect to the non-equalized HD600 (i.e., remove the illusion of bigger stage, more space, better separation)?  Just curious.

More than 10 years (they're original pads). I'm not really sweaty type :D 

 

PS: as you can see the old ones aren't even so bad.

Ok, then I don't need to keep one in stock  at home, yet.

I guess so - not something I'd thought of trying.  You'd have to be an expert at EQ to try and imitate the HD600's tone and timbre portrayal though - if indeed it could be emulated.  Better to have both and then you can alternate the strengths of each as the mood takes you ;)

Just hooked up the Asgard 2 in line and tried out the HD 600. I'm not certain yet, but I think I may like it better than the Lyr with this particular can. More to come.
