Wow. Congrats on making us engineers seem even more DBish.

BTW, has anyone noticed that the green Q701s have a more organic sound to them? LOLk701smile.gif

Whether your opinion is based on actually hearing the 'phones, or reading about them, it is still your opinion.  "Objective" data cannot give a realistic understanding of how something actually sounds.

For example: the infamous ath-m50 

according to it's frequency response graph (taken from both innerfidelity and headroom)  it should be a fairly mid centric headphone.

 However, anyone that has heard one could tell you that it's not.

 

Oh, and on a bit of a side note:

Here is a list of "facts" that I have garnered from several years of lurking around headfi.

 

1. Beats brand headphones are the worst thing ever made, anyone that says otherwise is an idiot and should probably be shot.

2. Bose headphones sound terrible. the only reason anyone buys them is because they have tricked into giving their money away based solely on name brand recognition. Bose is a    

    conspiracy crafted by the same guys that killed J.F.K.

3. On the eighth day, God made the ath-m50.

4. Bass is bad, you don't want it. If your head phones have any bass in them, you're probably just a "basshead" and don't have any appreciation for real music.

    Unless you listen to dubstep,

    then it's okay.

5. Skullcandy headphones are for children. Partially deaf children with no fashion sense.

6. If you own headphones manufactured by either Sennheiser, Grado or Audeze and you spent more than $600 on them, Guess what? You're better than everyone else!

 

7. If you haven't yet spent at least $20,000 on your set up,

    (dac, tube amp, mahogany headphone stand, acoustically tiled listening room, and of course handmade planar magnetic headphones crafted out of agarwood cups with amur leopard skin  

    pads recabled with platinum coated oxygen free silver cables.)

    Then you should consider upgrading immediately.

Why do you prefer passive speaker/monitors?

 

 

Quote:
I cannot fathom how someone would think active speakers have no ability to be equalized, or that their amplifiers are inadequate. If anything, the amplifiers are matched to the transducers impedance, and active crossovers are designed to co-operate with the amplifiers, at least they should be. Compare this to throwing the passive crossovers an unmatched impedance response from whatever amplifier they're running from. Add some DIY-like silver cables with no adequate shielding with exotic materials, and in worst case scenario, a tube amplifier with exposed tubes that introduce a lot of RFI into the mix.

Then again, some might like the "flavour", I think it's more like dropping a Big Mac on the floor and still calling it a meal. Now THAT'S flavour.

No offense intended because I think it's a fine song, I just absolutely hate it.

 

Bleh, audiophile music, makes me cringe. I need to go cleanse my ears, I feel violated. tongue.gif

I can think of about 50 audiophile headphones that are more colored.  The HD650 is on the warm side for sure.  But it's not as far from neutral as most other "audiophile" headphones.  It's funny how warmth is considered more of a coloration than brightness on head-fi.  You give a headphone a bit of warmth, head-fi freaks out about how colored it is.  But the brighter a headphone is, the more "neutral" it becomes.  Warmth is a coloration, wheras brightness is simply "revealing your crappy recordings". 

 

It's because head-fiers are detail junkies, and because warmth is "pleasing" while brightness is not.  So clearly the serious head-fiers are the ones enduring the most painful listening experience possible so they can hear all the musicians farting in the background.

Typical RD. Making assumptions, inserting his own agenda, and attempting to be witty.

As a basshead I am offended by this. basshead.gif

Yeah, he's a royal pain the a** butt I still heart the little bugger.  Just keep mentioning how neutral the HD800 is and he's bound to pull a Linda Blair.

don't worry. one day everyone will know fart cannons are as painful and headache inducers. bassheads will be the new wave of audiophilia. the whole thing though is just progressing very slowly. the brightness fad will soon fade away.
