Would you be interested in mine DigitalFreak? PM me and lets see if we can work out a deal :). Same stand. Brand new.

Like I mentioned earlier, my HD600 came in today and it couldn't fit my amp due to the alternate HD650 cable. So I went to Radio Shack to pick up an adapter, which cost me $10 (!). Safe to say, I'll be returning it as soon as my 94 cent one comes in tomorrow. Still, I'm glad I could hear the HD600 tonight because...

 

I think I'm done buying headphones and iems.

 

As good as my DT880 is, I'm floored by the mid range of the HD600. I barely have words to describe what I'm hearing. I first fired up Firewood by Regina Spektor, and it instantly reaffirmed the fact that these headphones are only tools to help the music shine through. It also reminded me that the soul of a song is in the mids. 

 

So, between my GR07, MH1C, HD600, and my incoming ASG-2/ASG-1.3, I'm just...good. I'm almost not even concerned with the upcoming Vsonic stuff.

Aaaaaanything for moneeeeeeey. Man, he couldn't even try anymore before he melts into some corporate goo. It's too hard for me to watch it whole (so I didn't), watching at the must-do-this-thing-I-don't-understand-but-it-feels-wrong-to-me feel.

Here's to all the women in this world that always kept me on my toes since I can't even fathom to understand even 1% of how you guys gals think. :P But it made my life fun (and meaningful).

I remember thinking that when I got my K2 sp's. A year later you only have to check my latest Youtube video to see what happened biggrin.gif

Now that I've heard the Flat-4, I can't flippin wait for the ASG-2. Dynamic drivers just deliver in ways that the BAs I've encountered are incapable of. I fully expect the ASG-2 to be highly competitive with the F-4 if not better and that gives me the willies

I consider them the best pure dynamic driver IEM I've heard yet (although it is very different in its design and of course the use of dual drivers).

Hmm, excuse me if I'm wrong, but that sounds like you think the Flat-4 is a 2-way design with front mid/highs driver and a bass driver in the back (like the K3003 and 1plus2). That's actually not the case, these are two full range drivers working in a push-pull configuration (180 degrees phase-shifted). So there's actually no bass driver above the mid/highs driver when you wear them upside down and the only reason for them sounding different may be a different insertion angle and/or depth (or your imagination ;-).

 

Bottom line, if you find them more comfy over the ears, just go for it and experiment a bit with insertion angle/depth. smile_phones.gif

I'm not sure what is causing the difference in sound then. You may be right about the angle changing the sound. But the thing is even with the FX700 I got the same results with different sound wearing them over ear ;). Now I'm on the large TF10 tips and it actually does sound better so I may stick with this for a while :)

I'm actually listening with the wire over the ear at the moment, this is great because it practically alleviates all of the discomfort I had from the phase correction tube pinching my ear. I'm not noticing anything detrimental to the sound at all so I'm very pleased.

Ha, I know what you mean. Still, I really feel like I'm done unless some absurd deal comes my way, which is highly unlikely since I'm pretty sure I've used up all my audio-related luck for the remainder of the year.

The best part about the ASG-2, for me, is that it doesn't use a crossover. It's a full range dynamic, coupled with a pair of tweeters to augment the upper mids and highs. It should be really interesting.

I think the 1plus2 is the same way no? No crossover? Except the dynamic supplies the lows while the TWFKs handled mids+highs? I'm dying to hear that new dynamic driver that Dale cooked up plus the new Knowles BAs. I remember ShotgunShane sayin he was amazed by the "limitless" treble and that the bass ran circles around the Merlin/MG6pro. It's too bad his pair have been delayed so many times, would love to read some fresh impressions. Flysweep seems to think they eat the Heir 4a's for lunch too, I talked to him recently about his Dream Earz AUD-7x and he felt the proto he listened to was better still. So long as Dale gets that shipment of bass valves in, it shouldn't be too much longer

Shouldn't be much longer now!

You should at least give the MrSpeakers Mad Dog w/ Alpha Pads a listen if you ever get the chance. I purchased a pair (with Dog Pads at the time) and after listening for about a week, I found them so much better than the HD600 that I sold the Sennheisers. The HD600 are a great pair of headphones, but I find the Mad Dog a bit more neutral than the HD600, especially with the newer pads. In addition, if you're thrilled with the Sennheiser mid range, I think the Mad Dogs would also work very well with your tastes.

 

The Paradox, which I have no experience with, also seem like an interesting direction to take for those looking for neutrality and a well-defined mid range. You'd have to ask someone else more about this one, though.
