"My 2008 Plasma eats todays 'high-end' TVs. :D "

 

 

It also eats a lot of juice.

As do Class A amps. But it's worth it, right?

I'd say the jury's out on that one.

Shock horror - now left with just two headphones:

1 x open full size (T1)

1 x portable (T51p) - yet to arrive

 

A multitude of IEMs.

 

Really? Wow! I hope you're OK.

I like having the 600 and the 650 in my headphone stable. I'm not sure yet which one I like better, I need to spend more time comparing them head-to-head. I do think that the Sennheiser Momentum sounds like a junior sealed version of the 650, but not as airy, or refined, but the same Sennheiser family sound signature.

I prefer the highs on the HD600. The HD650 seem recessed in comparison.
post #8318 of 11371
I love the way the 650 sounds, but I see what you mean. I have had headphones where the treble shimmers, like the HD 560 ovation. That is probably the best treble presentation I've ever heard on a headphone. Of course, my experience is limited. I tend to prefer more laid-back sound...

The mids are a tad bright on those ovations, and so the bass tends to be more recessed. But I still love that headphone for jazz and classical. It is bright without being harsh, except for recordings that are harshly recorded

I have both HD6xx & I personally don't try to find out which one is better.   They both are quite enjoyable & both get a lot of playing time.  It depends on the type of music, era of recording, production, etc, &  amp I'm using also.  I've had both HPs for years, have been enjoying them & still like them more than any other HPs.  :L3000:

See I like that, I definitely feel Like I would like both quite a bit, I know currently the HD600 is my favorite headphone I have used, which partial to the different genre jumping, and it's ability to play back audio from each genre and make it sound like it was made for that style of sound. I also have gotten use to the clamp on my big head, and having the right sitting position helps, and got a nice sleeve cable with a 1/4 jack on it which I wanted because of my amps.

What's all this eye-rolling? You'll do damage to the retina.

 

Plasmas can eat up 3 times the juice of LEDs and I literally can't see that it's worth it. As for Class A amps, same thing. I've owned switchables like the Marantz PM80 and could never pick between A and A/B. Class As are good in Winter because you don't need a heater. Otherwise I think their advantages are arguable at best.

I'd rather poke my eyes with a rusty fork than watch anything but the morning news on a LED TV, whatever the cost savings are...

Well, get ready to poke your eyes out with a rusty fork in the near future, because plasmas are going the way of the Dodo.
