New on the Head-fi field - Just received the Sennheiser 595's. Got some questions! - Page 2

post #16 of 17

Congratulations! I really like the 595s. I think they're good for just about everything. I have to disagree with Anathema123, though. I think even a little old cmoy amp that I have makes a world of difference. Of course mine are the original 120 ohm version, I think, so that could make a huge difference.

Anyway, good choice. I'm sure you'll enjoy them.

Aye. Cross-examining them with the M50's through laberously switching the plugs and replaying songs revealed that, although the M50 are more tight sounding, the vocals (mids?) are pushed away quite a bit. Listening to "LOTR: The Fellowship" soundtrack really highlights that, as with the M50's the vocals are really surpressed, whilst the 595's bring out a wonderous "roomy echo" like they should do.

 

I do have the 50 Ohm version, so you may be right there. I'm still considering the E5 or E6, but I won't purchase them if Anathema is right. Perhaps I should look more in the way of DAC's? I'm a bit unsure what they are, or do, though. The other option is a sound card, which again, I'm unsure if it would do anything noticable with these cans.
