Hm.... Ask this at the D7k thread but lemme see what the fellow bassheads think. Whatchya think about the D7k's MIDBASS!!!! I heard from them they have more midbass than the hd650 but the lcd-2 have more midbass than the d7k. That means that the lcd-2 should have more midbass than the hd650 right, I don't find it so.....

Lol, reference doesn't exist. Its pure marketing. The closest thing you will get to reference is using the same headphones as the artist used when creating the album.

which is unlikely, as producers usually use monitors for recording...

I highly doubt you will hear a difference between Coax and RCA. Again, the term reference does not exist. There is no standard for it, it's simply based on what the company wants to call it.

I would agree that the term reference & studio do get tossed out a lot for marketing, but there are headphones that have sound signatures that are more neutral and uncolored. The ideal "reference" headphones would have a very flat linear frequency response that you can measure.

 

If you think you can hear the difference between coax & rca, then just do a blind test to confirm.

My goal is not to find a "reference" headphone (already have one of those) I want the best, no compromise, Basshead 'phone I can find. It's going to be either the Signature DJ (which I have fallen madly in love with) or the Th-900 (which I have a crush on, but have never met). I am checking my email every ten minutes looking for shipping confirmation.... Come ON!  tongue.gif

there is a big differance in rca in coaxil, and that's due to interfeance. I have like 6 digital devies around my amps and my odac, that's alot of interferance being tossed around, hence the coaxial are slighty better coated and don't really gather as much interferance, and I can hear the differeance but ofc with all head phone gear it's like OMG 2% better, it's enough to be like Oh yea, but not enough to mandate anything, plus there's the extra length of the cable which I'm sure has some effect on sound or what ever

 

either way even if it is a mental thing, that's what audioophila is SPEND money the brains MAKES STUFF SOUND BETTER,  subjectivity is worth it imo. If I WANT it to sound good it proably will and vice versa, besides it sounds cooler to tell people you;'ve got dual coaxial digital outs as opposed to rca[ and the best thing about mono price is it's ALL cheap lol]

hahaha sure. i'm not arguing either way.

 

i would say just try a blind test comparison test to see if you can actually hear the difference (where someone compares A-to-A, A-to-B, and B-to-B randomly). Then a blind "match the sound to the set-up" and see if you can consistently match the sound to the setup. Only after you know you can tell the difference, then think about whether the difference is worth the money. A blind test will remove the subjectivity/bias/"mental thing." if you don't hear a difference, then don't waste your money. simple as that :)

Wanted to let you guys know that no matter how good the Th-900s are (I have a pair coming) I'm NOT going to send back the DJ's. They are too good and they'd be a perfect (albeit extravagant) portable rig. The more I look at the Th-900s the more it's looking like a "keep it in the house" head'phone and not something I should be dragging around town. The fact that it doesn't have a replaceable headphone cable is a dealbreaker right there (wtf?). confused.gif

 

No way I'm gonna risk taking those out in public. Assuming I even like them, but let's get real. Of course I will. Anyway, thought Craigster would like to know that his sale is secure. biggrin.gif

 

No matter how good the Th-900s are the Sig Dj's aren't going away. I love them too much. You made a great recommendation there Craig. I'm having a great time with these and they are going on vacation with us next month for sure.
