post #2056 of 2085

Hello Sig Pro brothers

 

We may have another option now...

 

FiiO RC-HD1 Replacement Cable for Sennheiser HD598 Headphones

They might be just the thing for people who wanted a more flexible cable. Not sure if they can deliver the same improvements of the Oyaide.

I'd seen that and was thinking to buy it but the reviews were not fantastic 

 

There's quite a few more; just type in ebay 'HD598 cable.'

 

Might order a few just to see

I see.. that's too bad. I'm pretty happy with the Oyaide right now so if I do order this it would just be out of curiosity.

 

I'm more interested in their other cable because I think it might fit my Spirit Pro.

If i used mine at home, i would be happy with the Oyaide,  however I mostly use the sigpro's out and about. At home i have W3000anv and DX1000 to keep me company. So my portable duty shifts between the Sigpro, Ed8 LE, ES10 and esw9. Oh and of course Jh13s for certain occasions. Pretty satisfied with those choices.

I just have to say, I REALLY underestimated what a good amp can do for these. I recently picked up a used Purity Audio KICAS (still using the Aune T1 as the DAC), and blazes does this sound good. It's darker than I was used to, but now that my ears have adjusted, soundstage and bass are absolutely amazing. I need to get some new cables and maybe a better tube to get the fuzz out of the sound, but even as is it's already night and day.

The Sig Pro continues to impress. I had a really long session with the Romeo Ed. 8 last weekend. And although the sound was impressive as well, the coloration kind of get's annoying in the end. I think it's a very nice fun headphone with a very refined sound, but I still prefer the Sig Pro for longer everyday listening and I think it's just as refined in its own way. I'm thinking of adding the Ed.8 as my "fun" headphone for little twenty minute happy sessions.

To the people that are having comfort issues with the Sig Pro - my advise would be to wait it out. Till yesterday it felt like it was squeezing the soul out of my brains - almost like a death vise. But I just stretched it out on my thighs for about 20 minutes and now it's so comfortable it's actually crazy.

 

Good thing I didn't return it like I initially wanted to!

Hi There..

 

Having used my SigPro for five months I love their dynamic and crisp-clear mids (beats my HD600 hands-down, source/amp 901+V200) but I am still not quite satisfied with their tingling treble. Some more experienced users suggest a longer burn-in due to the "stiff" titanium-coated drivers but I cannot wait. Somehow I came up with a simple mod.

 

SigPro's treble is not significantly brighter than those of HD600/650 and DT880-600, as seen in headroom/innerfidelity/goldenears measurements. Unlike those three headphones the SigPro consistently produced tingling and metallic treble when instruments like harpsichords, violins or trumpets kick in. To my ears the timbre resembles the treble of RS1i/e and is likely to be the result of resonance. The THD+N plot on innerfidelity and the "spikes" in CSD from goldenears may support my speculation. 

 

Damping those resonance seems to be a solution. Without any knowledge in acoustics and proper gears I found a good enough solution after tried a few combinations.

TL;DR:

 

The mod may void your warranty

Be careful with the soldering, cables and drivers

 

What I used:

 

2 * HD600/650 foam plates

1 * PH00 screw driver

 

Steps:

 

  • The foam plates taken off from HD600/650 always have an oval-shaped trail, cut out the outer parts of both foam plates. Fold them. 

 

  • Take off earpads of the SigPro. The holes on the upper side are blocked by some white plastic plates; the foam will be inserted on the back of these holes.

 

  • Unscrew the housing use a PH00 screw driver and insert the foam. 

 

  • Put everything back. Done. note: blocking the plastic vents using foams or damping the back of the vents significantly affect the sound stage.

I already have mine, but great price! Do you mind if I ask what you're going to use now?

post #2069 of 2085

The HD 800.  I prefer open headphones.

 

Cheers
