Where is this Dutch meet? Where where where?

http://www.head-fi.org/t/628258/dutch-november-2012-meet

 

Central Netherlands it seems but Rikkun as we call him(Tilpo) as his name is Rik is a super regular at our thread as am I. The equipment being brought will rock your mind,I suggest you go and demo some of it. But the only problem is that the stuff you hear wilbe driven using $200+ DAC and amp equipment at the very least so its not a fair representation of what you will get. The HFI 580's arent' picky but I still drive them through a $250 Audio gd and an Custom O2.

Ah okay! I made a post there :).

 

I don't really get it with the whole O2 thing though. Is it an amp or something you need beside a amp?

You also need a good DAC.... if you wnt to use with the O2 or most headphone amps here on Head-Fi. The HFI 580 isn't needy so you can just plug directly headphone out

 

Do you have a Macbook?

Ah, no. I have a MSI CX 70 016. A gaming laptop with build in SRS (surround software.) it doesnt really.. work, though.

 

 

Hmm.. I'll go look around a bit then! But I like headphones that dont need amps to function greatly

That's not really a good audio interface either way.

 

The HFI 580 doesn't need one, but go to the meet, meet new friends, talk and learn and listen to headphones that you would otherwise never dream of hearing in your life

 

 

But there is a warning to be made though. Going on this trip nearly guarantees that you are not mearley going to just be spending the money getting there and back but also that in the next year you will get money together and lust for that $600 setup you heard and even more. Its called the upgradeitis bug and it is very addicting. Beware, it is highly toxic and catches immidately. You will get infected whether you like it or not and the lethalness of it is unprecendented. Beware....you will become ONE OF US, if you go and hear a STAX setup.

I owned the DT770/80 and auditioned the M50 several times. I feel the 770 has more sub-bass, while the M50 has more mid-bass, M50's mids and highs are also a bit more pronounced, but soundstage is bigger on the 770. M50 may tend to get overly sibilant on poorly recorded anisongs, and trust me if your headphones are sibilant listening to those will get painful quickly, so I prefer the 770 for that. You may need an amp for it though, but it really isn't that hard to drive, just needs a little bit of power to shine.

 

The K550 may be a good choice as well, however it is $300 here in the states, not sure how much it costs in EU.

Foldable, closed-back high quality headphones with very exclusive design and extraordinary sound, offering the highest standard of technologies: S-Logic™ Natural Surround Sound Plus MU Metal shielding (ULE-technology) Safer hearing

 

How much of this is real? 

 

S-Logic™ Natural Surround Sound Plus MU Metal shielding (ULE-technology) Safer hearing,

sounds fancy, but is it any good? 

 


(HFI-780)

It's 229 euro here, the K550. Ah I see, then M50 won't be it for me. But I don't have poorly recorded anisongs me thinks, if you're referring to the kbps. 

Do you know of the HFI-780 ?

IT does sound fancy..but don't mind any of it. Just think less bass and clearer for 780 and bass for 580..but even then the 580 isn't super bass, it has just enough. I just really like the HFI 580 and considering they are $118....are pretty simple.

Noted. I wish I could listen to them first though, sigh. Our Mediamarket (don't know if you have that in America) doesn't have any headphones hanging other than sennheiser, sony, bose, dr dre etcetc you know, all the mainstream stuff.
