I'm talking about the Turbines or even Beats in ears.

I see you have both headphones. How do they stack up?

G'day lads,

 

We need MOAR STAX. That is all.

 

I wonder how many SR-009's we have around our part of the world.....

Had both.  I sold the DT880 in the end.  Almost regret it though at times.  Have never regretted getting the HD600 though.

 

HD600 - slightly more relaxed, and mids very slightly forward.  Still has great bass and highs.

DT880 - faster, extends a little more on both bass and highs, but as a result mids are ever so slightly flat.

 

Both are simply fantastic cans.

Nice. I guess I'll have to audition the HD600. wink.gif

Would love to listen to some flagships to see what they are like too (esp the HD800, LCD2/3, Beyer T1, and Stax 009).  All out of my price range - but would be nice to know what the difference is between mid and high end.

 


Still waiting for the SR-009 to magically appear at A2A at some stage smile.gif

 

Been chatting to George, he's still unsure on whether it's worth having as a demo unit, so precious, very precious

 

If you're in Melbourne though, the rest of those can be covered in an 1hr or so if you drop in!

Oh don't worry - when I eventually make the trip across the ditch, I'll definitely be PMing a few of you.  Will be nice to put some faces to the avatars.

Not sure who's into higher tier DJ cans but next week I'll definitely be getting my hands on the Ultrasone Signature Pro's

for an audition ~ interested to hear these, first $1000 DJ orientated cans - will post impressions.

 

Audiophilleo 1 & 2 USB to SPDIF converters *should* hopefully be in store as well, wonderful device for anyone who's

got a decent DAC and they've been wondering if it really flies out of the Coax input instead of USB via the laptop.

What's the significance of DJ cans? Bass heavy?

 

post #43 of 876

Signing in from Adelaide SA here.

 

What is disappointing here in Adelaide besides the price of course, is the non existence of places to audition some high end head-fi gear.

A good bassline, tight bass is essential, closed, reasonable driver speed, swivel cups for when using just one cup

for monitoring mixes on the fly. Some have V-shaped curves, big bass down low but a reasonably bright

top treble too. Tough build quality as they dragged around from venue to venue. Must be easily serviced

if something breaks.

Hey double noob here, new to this forum and to headphones in an audiophile sort of manner! haha!

 

Anyone here into IEMs or just cans?

 

I had a pair of full-can sennheisers way long ago mainly for sound-mixing and would probably invest in another soon but not sure what is good for both live/studio mixing as well as audiophilia-nirvana... any thoughts or experience?

 

ps great 'downunder' idea for this thread!
