Those are gorgeous cups! They look scratch prone though.

I started this review with the intention of pointing out the things I don't like about it, but man, there really isn't much I don't love about these. Out of the box they sound very thin and...
It does a good job as a DAC for my starving student amp. Eventually, I will probably upgrade but it works well enough. It is nice that it powers off of USB and doesn't take up tons of space.
The review is based on the stock pads, not based on the upgraded velour pads. The only problem with the sound quality is a weird color in the upper mids, around vocal range. This is due to the...
The 880s don't have a lot of color to themselves. They're light comfortable cans that get the job done. They are a well rounded headphone good for someone who can't quite figure out what kind of...

Lol what. The HD600 is not analytical and upfront at all. They're about 70% of the HD650 (in terms of sound signature) just with a bit more treble and less midbass. They actually slightly lack detail compared to other mid-fi cans in its price range (K701, DT880, HE-400), so they're not analytical at all. Though i do agree with you on the realism part. Instruments really sound like they do in real life.
Yeah, I found the HD600 mids almost blurred too. It also sounds like there was some unnecessary treble added at 10-20khz, making for a "hifi" sounding highs
But they sound great. With all music.post #7908 of 836310/24/13 at 1:34pmQuote:
I actually find the HD600 treble to be less emphasized than most other neutral headphones, which tend to have more of a peak at 10khz. This causes upper treble to seem more prominent in comparison on the HD600s though.post #7909 of 836310/24/13 at 1:44pmQuote:
Tests and FR graphs show that the HD600's have a very even treble response. If you look at the below graph you can see that the HD650 has a slightly pushed up bass and recessed treble compared to the HD600, which illustrates why the HD600 has a more even response. I think that most would say that the HD600 excels at mids.There is no unnecessary treble added, in fact the HD650 has dip. You can see that from the other graphs below that it holds up well to other cans that cost much more.post #7910 of 836310/24/13 at 2:52pm
Actually they are not. All depends on how you treat them. Certainly not a 'throw in the backpack', you're right about that. But I'm 52 and konw how to take care of stuff like this. I've got the wood cup thing with my D5000 and D7000 so I'm practiced at being careful.post #7911 of 836310/24/13 at 6:47pmpost #7912 of 836310/24/13 at 6:50pm
Sorry to double post, I tried the HD800 on the weekend for the first time, and I subjectively found the treble to be a little painful, and the bass was lean. I A/B'd them with some HD 600 (Which I had also never tried) and they seemed to have slightly fuller bass, and smoother (less painful) treble. This was only a short test in a show room, mind you.post #7913 of 836310/25/13 at 2:15amQuote:
What you describe there is right, hd 600 is actually mean for Classical, Jazz and Acoustic pop. So it will sound somehow wrong on electronic dubstep with lots of piercing highs from sound effect.post #7914 of 836310/25/13 at 2:17amQuote:Originally Posted by White Lotus

How old are you? You must be very young, treble peakiness is affected by your age, I am 18 and I am comfortable with Hd600, but the 800 will give me a deaf slightly piercing treble.post #7915 of 836310/25/13 at 2:52amQuote:
Yeah they are very dark sounding, but there is some kind of extra "sizzle" at the very top in the treble IMO. That could be explained by that graph where it shows quite a bump at around 15khz. It just makes them sound a bit "polished" to me.post #7916 of 836310/25/13 at 3:15am
25 years old, and I'm incredibly protective of my hearing.post #7917 of 836310/25/13 at 11:16pmDouble post: a quick ode to the D5000.
I love how it's a bass cannon, yet so highly regarded in the audiophile world. I find so many "audiophile" grade cans to be very bass-light or lean. I love that a cheeky little bass monster sits comfortably with the "big boys".
Is the LCD2 in the same boat? I've never heard one before.post #7918 of 836310/26/13 at 1:22amQuote:
LOL. The difference here is.. my wife can share my headphones anytime she wants (she's particularly fond of my V-MODA cans), but I can't share her shoes or clothes. Not that I want to, of course.post #7919 of 836310/26/13 at 2:47am
