But I think I have an improvement. Super-sensitivity is mostly gone and I've enjoyed some music without pain and ringing on my big stereo yesterday night.

 

I urge everyone having issues similar to mine to go and see their physician!

Outstanding, glad to hear things are looking up for you. I wonder if your new found ears will require a burn in period? :D

They do, I had to crank up my listening volumes a bit and I had trouble understanding some people talking to me.

Looks like my brain had to readapt to lower hearing sensitivity.

Encouraging news! Let us know how you're doing after the antibiotics.

I have just finished the course and there's an improvement. No itching, pain and pressure. Still going to see an audiologist though to do more checks.

Word of caution, the wires are VERY easy to break.  Be careful and take your time removing the lollipop driver housing.  Also keep metal objects away from the drivers once they are removed.  The magnets are small but powerful enough to attract paper clips, staples, tweezers...etc.  The very tool you use to re-bend the springs could jump across the table and crush the driver diaphragm.  I use a wood/bamboo BBQ skewer, whittle it down to a flattened point with my knife... like a small screwdriver.

 

When removing the lollipop is it just held in place by the plastic clips circled in red? Or do I need to do something with the gold pins circled in green? It seems tough to remove.

Just pull the whole thing out.. it will go. Nothing holds it near the golden pins, AFAIR.

Thanks. i managed to get it out of there. I spent around 20 minutes trying to bend both springs, they are very stiff. I don't think it made any difference since when I replaced the driver in the assembly and connected the cable back I still had the sound cutting in and out depending on the cable position.

This is what the springs look like. I might take another crack at it later.

 

post #7149 of 8414

yeah thats them alright.  I just use a wood BBQ skewer and carefully bend the spring coils back so they are closer together.  Note that at some point around ~2007-06 senn updated the spring metal to a much stiffer material.  it sounds like yours are the updated springs.  Mine most likely are the older/softer ones.

I used a BBQ skewer whittled down to a flathead. The springs were so stiff they were bending and stripping the wood from the skewer. I then tried it with a miniature screwdriver used to secure the screws on my phono cartridge which made it easier to bend the springs. But they always went back to their original position. The headphones were purchased around 2005 I think. I guess I'll contact Senn to see if they can provide different springs.

 

When I plug the cable into the naked assembly the pins go between the larger holes in the spring that can be seen above.

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.

You like the TH600's for EDM only?

yes I think the HD600 is better for the vocal stuff
post #7153 of 8414
I've found that the HD600 has a high sensitivity to distortion even playing at low volume. Anybody here experience the same?

What do you mean? That it brings out the distortion in the recording more, or that the amp distorts easily with it?

post #7155 of 8414

What does that mean, high sensitivity to distortion? You mean your amp is clipping even at low volumes?
