What is the head size/height relationship exactly? Is it like a hand/penis thing?

Ive heard people describe amplifiers as "dry" or "wet," but I have never heard anyone describe a music genre in that way. Do metal albums condense more than other genres? Are concept albums particularly moist?

Sorry, I couldnt resist...all in jest wink.gif

Yeah, it's actually more like a head size/penis thing.  Did I mention I have a size 7 1/2 hat size?  :cool:

I dunno but people tend to use their height as an indicator even sometimes if the actual body part in question were the earlobes, where shape matters as much as actual size, and people with earlobes facing more forward are just perceived to have bigger earlobes (not necessarily). Similarly, headshape is another issue - from the side, if I'm bald or in a military haircut, my head looks like an King Tut's, thanks to how my baby pillows were too soft and I didn't move my head around. Parents corrected that with my brother three years after, so his head looks normal while I look like an inbred Egyptian "alien" (thanks, History Channel).

As for metal, I used it as an example because when I say "album," a metal album is likely to fill up CD to full 80 minute capacity with two songs going over ten minutes with no songs shorter than four and a half minutes. Compare that to radio-friendly music that typically needs to have as much of a hook to it and at only three minutes plus so they can squeeze in commercials or station IDs between songs (over here I hate FM for their sneaking in "dubya...dubya...dudya...elllllllllllll esssss! FM!" or the like during the outro and intro crossfade).

I've fallen asleep with them on too and my cat will curl up on my lap and lull me to deep sleep until 7 or 8 in the morning when I'll go crawl in bed.

My boyfriend has a HD600 and wears them with 13 clicks from the tightest - hes 6'4. He has no issues with clamping force at all, just thought to mention it.

 

I'm 5'2 and wear them with 4 clicks with no problems.

It took me 10 years to replace mine and I can't say the old ones were even that bad.

for the HD600 owners ... what upgrades had biggest improvements? Different cable? Earpads? better DAC ? AMp?

Amp. But if your source sucks, start there.

I sure wouldn't.  I put the stock 650 cable on mine when the original had a break in it.  $19 CDN  It's a bit heavier than stock 600.
