hd600 advice

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

hi everyone, i hope you dont mind me asking this, ill explain my situation.(i hope this is the correct section to post this)


i have an x fi elite pro and an ad700, i ordered some hd600 from a member of this forum and they just arrived today.


i CAN notice the difference of quality, i understand what everyone means by the ad700 soundstage sounding artificial, i can say though i think the ad700 are more comfortable  somehow.


i do feel the volume to be low so i think i need an amp for sure to get the most out of this headphones.


using what i got right now though what settings would u recomend?


any bassboost/cutoff frequence? using cristalizer/cmss or equalizing?


for my future purchase im thinking buying a little dot mk3, even though its too expensive since im from chile and the shipment would be ridiculous, are there any options?.


thx a lot for your time and patience :)

I've heard that the X fi have enough driving power for them. Maybe a soundcard upgrade? like the essence stx?

its not that it sounds bad, it sounds great really, but i have to have the volume at max at all times.

Well, I wouldn't use that creative enhancement stuff. Get an amp eventually, if only a cheap one.

What media player do you use? Most of them have preamp and volume adjustment that lets you increase the volume more than the default maximum setting.

VLC lets you increase the volume up to 200%. Is it still not loud enough for your HD600?

The VLC on my Mac has an EQ.  It's under Window, or it's on the little display thing.

Wait, WHAT?


I have a pair of HD-580's that I've never needed to run at 100% even with my X-Fi Xtrememusic. Mine is modded but it still puts out the same amount of power. I think my volume slider is at 35% max on that
