The one you saw was most likely the HD650 and not the HD600.

Aw I see. Is there a huge difference between the 600 and 650 as far as power requirements go? Seems like I read somewhere the hd600s are easier to drive... I'm seriously looking into getting either one or the other for home listening, but only have an audioquest dragonfly 1.2 dac. Would that adequately drive either of them?

Although they're 300 ohm, my 600's are awfully easy to drive.  I can play directly off my iPad, though they scale up nicely with a proper amp.

 Oh yeah...remember those steampunk cases from a few years ago. But I forgot who made them.

That case is one-of-a-kind and made by Brass Eyes.

Thanks for the info.

 

I just remember downloading the pics when he posted them the first time...

Still beautiful - interested in how they passed the test of time

I don't mean to be overly negative, but I don't get this trend at all. The usual criticism is "just glue some gears on it" but that's what's happening here. I could understand if they made it appear functional, but they literally have gears on top that are not connected to any other mechanism. If they're trying to mimic victorian-era mechanical designs, at least make it look mechanical....or limit it to a brass/leather/wood enclosure.

Read up on it.

I personally quite like steampunk as is, so there is no reason for me to complain.

 

I don't want to be overly negative here, but can you do a much better job? And what do you want it to do other than look good? - make you hot coffee on the go?

Is the rule now that we can only criticize things if we can personally do better? this site is full of reviews where people are criticizing other people's products. I don't like this type of steampunk; I think it would look better if at least it looked like the stuff glued to it appeared functional.

I personally try only to criticise things which I can do better myself or if it serves the person directly.

 

But anyway...let's stop this and move on...;)

Does anyone have any suggestions for safely and conveniently storing and carrying my CIEMs?

 

The hard shell jewelry case that came with them is convenient, but a bit small as I feel like i am compressing/bending the connectors unless they are place perfectly. The NT6pros use a musician's fit going to the second bend making them larger, awkward, and hard to place correctly. Plus the case doesn't have any cord management so the cord is getting squished as it sticks out the side. It takes a couple minutes to get them in there correctly so it is not as easy to use as it would seem. I have been using a quick and easy larger square zipper case that they lay in loosely and click together when shook, but this isn't a really good solution either.

 

Desired Case Characteristics:

  1. Compact: Is compact for travel and easy to store in a drawer.
  2. Secure: I can secure each ear piece individually.
  3. Cable Management: Something to wind the cable on.
  4. Easy Access: Access in seconds, not minutes, easy to open.
  5. Affordable: No more than $50, less is better. Unless no other good options.

 

Love this, but it may be a bit big and probably expensive if even available and the custom inserts are an issue:

I just ordered the below item to give it a try, but the storage in the middle looks too small for CIEMs so I may have to use for other IEMs. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
