post #1621 of 1629

Hi. I'm using my HD700 from 3 months already. At the moment I'm playing on Hegel Super.

 

I'm looking for some hard case that I can buy in europe. Do You have something that's ideal for our precious headphone ?

Why not use the factory case? I thought that was very sturdy for transport.

Yes but it doesn't have handle so it's not very portable.

I will further add testament to the durability of this case. I have mashed/jammed the case into my laptop bag, forced the bag zipper shut, and then put my laptop bag (with case inside) behind my driver seat in the rear foot area. Well, my super-tall in-law went and moved my car so he could get out one day, and had to move the seat back to fit his extra heighth. Power seat, mind you. Well, I was scared for my $1000 in equipment that it might be crushed, but nope, all is intact, and no one would ever know they had been so close to death!

Hey guys, long time lurker. Actually had a family member that used to post here, which is why I knew about the site. ANYWAYS, I ended up getting the HD-700 recently. Normally I would just ask my brother, but he recently got a job in another country and is busy. I tried the HD-700 a while back, and really loved them. But I also thought they were kind of fatiguing. I think I read that you can mess with the equalizer, and reduce treble levels, or something about the dcb? Sorry if that's a dumb question. My brother left me a Schiit Lyr Amp, but I still need a DAC. I plan on getting the Fiio E17 when I get paid next, and eventually upgrade that later. So because I don't have that for the next month, can I do this in iTunes?

 

Again, sorry if these are dumb questions. I just loved the HD-700s comfort, and the sound. But I did find it sort of fatiguing, and was wondering if I could do stuff to curve that a little.

First welcome to the forums.

 

Look under Window in iTunes. (screen shot from a Mac, PC may be lightly different)

 

 

 

You do say you like the fit and the sound, and you do have an ok amp, so I’d only see the HD700s being fatiguing if one were too listen at higher than normal volume levels for an extended period of time, or the output of your source is only so so.

Those looks like low quality cable. Order a 6.5 to 3.5 from sennheiser.

Or you could get this. It's the cable for the HD212 but they are similar in shape to the ends on the HD700 oem cable.

but in the end I ordered a pair of these.

Thanks for the welcome! :)

 

Yeah, I'll admit I have a bad habit with volume levels. I should probably try lowering it. I only brought up the fatigue though, because in the past I've been sensitive to certain sound signatures. I forget the models, but certain AGK models didn't really sit well with me, same with  Beyerdynamic and Grado. I think I'm sensitive to treble, and certain high peaks (I think?). Anyways, I've read the 700 on certain recordings, can be kind of harsh on treble. So that is why I was asking about way to curve it to be less fatiguing for me (if that sort of thing is possible). Because I really really love the HD-700s comfort, and overall sound. My ears just get sore after listening for a couple hours. I had the same issue with the HD-800 when I tried my big bros.

 

BTW, sorry for the silly username. It's just a joke between sister and brother (he moved to Japan lol and we always joked about the waifu stuff in Anime). :P

 

ANYWAYS, I appreciate the help.
