The PANASONIC RP-HTF600-S headphones. More fun than the HD650? - Page 168

post #2506 of 2803

I just got mine today and at first I was not impressed, but after a few hours burn in, they started to evolve. I can't wait to see what they sound like after 50 hours of burn in.

I can definitely see what everyone is talking about.

The only issue I have so far is the cord is ridiculously long.

I agree. I will probably wait until the warranty runs out then cut a substantial length off the cable and solder on a good jack.

I just ordered these for $31 at Amazon. I'm expecting them either this Friday or Tuesday

 

I will make an unboxing video just because I got a new webcam as well and I want to use it for something xD

I was thinking of doing the same.  For now braiding the cord will do.

 

 

These headphones are really taking their time to burn in. After 15 hours the bass finally decided to poke it's head out the window.

I put a 20 minute pink noise track on loop and have them run in a drawer at work. I am liking them more and more.

just be careful not to overdo it ... some guys have wrecked the drivers on much more expensive cans by careless use of pink noise.  i recommend looping of 20min on followed by 5min silence at normal listening levels (or just slightly higher).

Never thought of that. I will take it easy for sure. Thanks.

I just got them a few minutes ago. Out of box they sounded nice but really hollow, hopefully some burn in fixes this! 

 

 

1000

 

On the left is my broken Superlux HD681, and the right are the pannies (obviously). 

 

What does removing the foam under the pads do?

I didn't like the way they sound out the box. Now they're starting to sound good (after a 30 hour burn in) but I need to amp them to get the bass to my desired level, or at the level I'm used to.

Do you think using the Asus Xonar's built in amp will help? I have it set to the second preset.

I didn't notice any bass improvement with burn in but I noticed the highs smoothed out a bit. Bummer is I am now sending back my second pair. 1st pair blew a driver within 2 hours, now this pair the right side has become slightly quieter throwing off the balance. Arggg. Hope 3rd times a charm.

Wow thanks for scaring me. I pray this doesn't happen to mine.

Sorry, but I can't comment on something I don't have. my laptop is pretty crappy so I rarely listen to music on it.

All I can tell you is with my HDJ500, my sansa fuze and tablet with an EQ app had no problems, but with these HTF600 I had to hook it up to my FiiO E11 and turn it up to 6 to match the bass my HDJ500 can do without an amp.

 

I'll give it another 24 hour burn in before concluding on this headphone.

Sorry, didn't mean to do that. With all the great reviews and lack of reported broken cans, my case is rare for sure.

It's all good. I'm a paranoid person xD.

 

The biggest problem with these is the driver 'popping' out if you apply pressure to the outer cups while they are on.
