 You must enjoy room reflections with your picture. We have 3 TVs--2 LCDs and 1 plasma. The best picture to my eyes is one of the LCDs (an LG). The Samsung plasma is OK but reflects everything in the room. If you want to check your hair it's great, but if you want to concentrate on the movie...well, not so much.

Modern best plasmas (Panasonic) have very advanced anti-reflective screens. I for one only get some reflections during daytime and they are not bothering me, because I only see them when my TV is off and under certain angles. Without a doubt, plasma works best in dimmer environments, but then I don't watch the movies at noon anyway. To each his own...

 

We're way off the topic now. ;)

I think of my panny plasma like the HD600. It gives a natural picture with deep blacks , accurate colour (touch on the warm side) and full motion resolution .It basically destroys current LCD Tvs ( poor blacks : poor motion resolution ) yeah they can do 4 k but I don't see any content. Just like TOTL headphones have better resolution but you need the recordings to actually appreciate it. Yeah it's not bright and doesn't burn retinas out but we like thinks more mellow and natural here in the HD600 thread don't we? wink.gif

Unlike audio, viewing experience is pretty objective and can be measured. My Panasonic in THX mode is very well calibrated and is as natural as it gets, with blackest blacks, super smooth motion (without over 900000 Hz electronic gimmicks) and accurate, life-like colors.

 

I'm only able to somewhat achieve this performance with my professional NEC PA computer screen, but it still lags behind in terms of contrast and motion clarity. And then of course there's some clouding and backlight bleeding on the dark scenes.

Exactly! I can't believe Panasonic have stopped making plasma Tvs. It will be years before Oled tech is refined and affordable and can offer full (non gimmick) motion resolution. Until then we are stuck with LCD cheap rubbish with maximum of 300 lines of resolution and terrible blacks that effect the colour saturation and depth. Let's hope out Panasonics are built as well as the HD600s so we won't have to buy new ones soon.

It took me a bit but I finally realised that I fell into a troll's lair. I'm out, try not to fall in there yourself. :D

 

Re: Plasma's. Of course, they're meant to be viewed in dark rooms. They provide the best video fidelity in dark rooms for true movie go-ers just as good headphones do for audiophiles. It's also about uniformity. All plasma's provide 10/10 black uniformity. I've never heard of a plasma owner talking about it's reflections under light... they've never seen it not once in a pure dark room? My old mother even notices plasma performance under darkness. It's normal for people to watch movies in the dark. See where I'm going with that... ;)

Bingo. :)

I own a pair of HD 600's and love them.

In my opinion comparing the plasma tv's and the LED tv's is like comparing the Sennheiser HD 600 to the Sony MD-R V6.

The Sony is sharper and brighter, and probably would appeal more to the general public, but lacks the fidelity, balance, and accuracy of the HD 600.

I recently bought a Samsung PN64F8500 plasma tv, and couldn't be happier.

I also own a Pioneer Kuro that has been discontinued since 2008.

Both are much better than my Sharp 70" LED TV that I bought earlier this year.

The screens on the Samsung and Pioneer plasma looks great, even in a bright room. Reflections are very minimal, and not distracting at all.

This samsung plasma has excellent brightness, depth, detail, sharpness, pop, color saturation, very deep blacks, excellent off center viewing angle, and excellent constrast.

The samsung plasma didn't look that impressive next to the LED tvs in the showroom, but excels here at home.

The Pioneer also excels, but isn't as bright as the Samsung or Sharp.

The Sharp is way too bright, looks cartoonish, lacks color saturation, has motion blur, and looks washed out off center.

Blacks look dark grey when compared to the plasmas rich deep blacks.

Its sad and too bad that plasma's are being discontinued, considering their superior picture quality.

When I read that Samsung was discontinuing their plasma TV's in November this year, I knew I had to jump on one, since I missed the boat on the last generation of Panasonic plasma's.

Sorry to be off topic, but just wanted to share.

That's a really nice explanation mate. You really didn't have to though. We all know it. Imagine the LCD rocks posts as someone coming into this thread and saying my -insertname- headphone is miles better than your HD600.

That's a great idea. I should listen to the TDKR OST on the HD600....

Get your hands on the extended version / recording sessions if you can. A really well recorded score it is. Sounds delicious on HD600.

I have them all - extended versions - as I am a fan of Hans Zimmer - particularly the Dark Knight Trilogy
