Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread - Page 440

post #6586 of 8112
I'm looking at the Musical Fidelity M1HPAP
Graham Slee Solo and Beyerdynamic A20.
I'm very lucky. I've got £500 to spend.

http://www.razordogaudio.com  $50 and $100 instant rebates on items over $249!

 

But there is more to the story than this. When you go to the site it tells you the Sennheiser HD 600s are out of stock. Also else where on the site it tells you Sennheiser is excluded from the hundred dollar rebate. But there is a parentheses next to the HD 600s which says ($100). When you call to arrange a preorder and ask if the parentheses means you could get the $100 the man tells you Sennheiser will not let him give the full hundred dollars but for Head-Fi members he will give $80 Sennheiser allows him to do that.

 

 

Consequently I have one on preorder for the preorder price of $319.95.

 

When I bought my HD600's a couple of years ago, Brian (Razordog) was still selling on eBay only (he did not have a website). Brian (and the other main Sennheiser sellers) routinely sold the HD600 for under $300. I bought mine from Amazon.com for $260 - new, retail, authorized seller. Sennheiser subsequently cracked down on this and we are where we are now. A few "creative" resellers have come up with ways to sell them for less, but it's not common. For example, one reseller holds a periodic sale where you can purchase $100 "gift cards" for $75 - no limit.

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.
