post #7951 of 8119

If anyone's interested, I'm selling my HD600 in the sale forum. It's in excellent condition and has brand new earpads and headband pad; almost no paint chips on the headband as well. Take a look at my signature. Cheers!

Sorry, I wasn't very clear. I don't think the Marantz needs a DAC or even an Amp for that matter. It already gets scary loud at 11 o'clock.

I was wondering if an O2/ODAC would make much difference from my FiiO E10 and get me closer to the Marantz sound.

Oh, Then I have no idea since I didn't try the O2/ODAC. Sorry...I am sure someone has...

Finally finished my comparison of HD600 and HD700.

Surprisingly (for me anyway) the HD700 will be going - and I did genuinely enjoy having it.  The HD600 though just shows why it is such a timeless headphone - still deserving of hi-fi status IMO.

I really enjoyed the reading, a very well written comparison! It seems that I'll be gladly keeping my HD600 :)

I just got myself the HD600 =)

Any suggestions on which amp/dac I should match up to this?

I was thinking of the Magni Modi combo or the Audinst Hud Mx2

post #7957 of 8119

why not the ALO Pan Am? ;)

post #7958 of 8119

I'm still very new to this scene so... yea.

Didn't even know there was such a brand until you mentioned.

 

I'm re-listening to Mumford and Sons and Bon Iver on these hd600s, and I never noticed the instruments in the background on my old whatever brand headphones. Feels like a completely different album.  

And this is me totally enjoying it: :atsmile:

Re-listen to everything you have, and you may surprised at all the things that were buried in the background.

That is how you know, an audio upgrade was worth it, when you listen again all the music, you like. :)
I also enjoy my HD600 very much. I listen to them almost every day :)

IMO, Audinst MX2 make the HD600 sound laid back. Really not my liking. HD600 is a sweet can. Sometimes managed to beat HD800 in some genre.

post #7962 of 8119

What does laid back mean? Sorry, I don't have any other equipment to compare with.

 

But I did get the Audinst MX2 and this is the difference:

I can finally bump up my volume to an comfortable level

there's no "bzzt bzzt' noise in the background when I do max out the PC volume

the music is more "around" my ear than before

and the bass in the music aren't as snappy (is that the right word?)

 

And best part, after a long "discussion" with the sales guy, I got the MX2 at 328SGD which should be around 260USD.

And a free RCA to 3.5mm cable for my cheapo creative speakers.

 

Listening to Ed Sheeren's Afire Love now.

I don't think the grin can get any wider:atsmile:

Less treble energy, usually a "warm" sound signature with non-fatiguing treble and a bump in mids and mid-bass.

post #7964 of 8119

I still feel these are best with electric instruments...

I feel these are best with acoustic AND electric instruments.:bigsmile_face:

Very nice and natural sounding with acoustic music.
