Woohoo 1000th post

 

Thought I'd make it this thread and say my HD600s and my TH600 are the cans I'd keep forever. One open and one closed, one for EDM ad one for everything else.

I'm so excited and may just keep both since my "HD 650" cost me roughly $120. I really don't know how these could be "better" than the HD 600. Although some people say the HE-300 sounds like a poor man's HD 650, and I love my HE-300. Can't wait to get home on Thursday!

 

Do you have an extra "Made in Ireland" plug by any chance? :rolleyes:

Thanks, looks like they managed to change the connector.

How does the sound quality of JH13 Pro compare to Sennheiser HD600 or HD800? I know this is not a very fair comparison due to CIEM vs open headphones but in terms of neutral/natural good sound quality, which do you think is the winner here? I know for wide sound staging the open headphones are definitely winners here but what about sound quality? Thanks in advance.

What would be an in-ear equivalent for the 600? (I understand it may be not as good)

Shure SE215? Nice and warm IEM for a good price.

From what I've read before that might be the Ortofon EQ7, but I think that's out of production now. I'm using the Aurisonics ASG-1, and it's a lot more like (how some people, not including me, tend to describe) the HD650 but with even less treble on it. So basically think of it as mostly similar enough from around 80hz to 10khz, at which point the ASG-1 begins to lose response, then disappears past 12khz at listening volume.* Take note though I'm willing to compromise on this for the fit and how much easier it is to get to a good volume without distortion.**



*up to 16khz is audible if I put the D-Zero at max volume; on the HD600 it goes well into 22khz at listening volume, then the test tone I used stops at 25khz, which was still faintly audible

**most inexpensive dynamic driver IEMs have boosted bass that smartphone audio chips can't rein in properly, and as such it actually sounds more controlled than my MEE M6P

I think many open headphone lovers has shunned away from IEMs due to their bad past experiences with them back in the infancy age of IEMs. Do keep your mind and ears open because the IEM technology has improved a lot. It's true that the sound staging of IEMs have not reach the width of high end open headphones yet, however do have a listen to those CIEMs like JH Audio's JH13 Pro (and a few other brands like Noble Audio and the likes) and i'm pretty sure most of you will be blown away by it's sound quality...which is comparable if not better than many high end open headphones. Just sharing my views and no offense to headphone lovers here. In fact I love both good IEMs and good full sized headphones too.

The problem is how to do that without spending several hundred bucks or more. You can walk into a store or a meet and don an HD800 for example and then take it off after; with those IEMs the best you can get is a sponsored event with a universal-type shell like the Aurisonics for custom IEM demos, which even then for all you know would sound different when you're using a custom shell vs the foam tips that were used on the demo units.

You're right ProtegeManiac, those CIEMs come at a price and so does Sennheiser HD800 too. If you're impressed with the non-custom (universal) version then the custom model will sound even better. Sorry for going off topic guys but as much as I love the Sennheiser HD600, I won't disregard IEMs which I can enjoy everywhere. My HD600 is only confined to my home setup, they're too bulky to be used outdoors.
