Having a Blues night on the HE-500's!
K501s, like usual. Did a minor EQ tweak, and now harmonicas no longer shred my ears.
I've had my suspicions that my amp is just a touch forward in this region, but now I'm like 90% certain. Can't really say for certain until I have a chance to try the headphones on another amp, though.
Full agreement there. I had the M6 just for fun for awhile, and was impressed when I sucked the bass out of it.
Thanks for the recommendation. But will that be much better than the E7/E9 combo? I've already dropped $150 for the E7/E9 and don't mind spending spending 2x / 3x more money if it means I'll have something good that I won't need to upgrade from.
Ugh, I have some $30 Sennheisers. I thought they were ok but then my coworker shoved a pair of Denon D5000's at me and now I'm looking for some decent mid-level set of 'phones. Curse my materialism! Hoping to score a D2000 but they're not super available :(.
I haven't exactly tried them yet but I have the Lyr at home and that's been beautiful for the LCDs so far. with the power the Modi/Magni combo can do I bet it'll be superb.
I've never tried the E9 with the LCD-3s, been using my Dragonfly on them and they've been superb.
I think there's some kind of code of nature you're violating there, but whatever. Guess ol' Tony's just going to have to learn to get along with the neighbors. Imagine if somebody switched the free Tony Bennett downloads you get with the headphones with Rosenrot, but kept the names the same.
It's amazing how, despite all the money we tend to spend on this stuff, something relatively inexpensive can still be enjoyable. That's how you know you're not jaded or prejudiced, when you can pick up a sub-$100 headphone and really get into it. Or, like me last night in the local *Meijer with my S6 and Clip Zip, fighting the urge to break out in headbopping to synthpop or grooving to Steely Dan. Total cost of that setup: $55, plus the time to run them through my usual EQ process.
I'd love to try that TBSE--or the Pro DJ 100 it's based on. I believe the latter has quite a few followers around here (including a cute white puppy in glasses), and from what I understand it's available for listening at some Best Buys. Must take a trip to one of the two near my house to find out.
*Yes, I'm from Michigan. I guess that probably should be Meijers, then, shouldn't it?
