Non-audiophile reactions to high-end headphones Part II - Page 57

post #841 of 3760

I ditched a pair of Sennheiser HD 800s for a pair of HD 202s. Lol, just kidding

Well I bear good news. I my friend is interested in buying my HFI-580s, and he is already starting to use Foobar and is re-ripping all his music into FLAC. I think we may have a conversion!

I have a JL Audio 12w6v2 in a sealed enclosure. The box has 1.25cubic ft internal volume. Hooked up to a JL audio 500/1. Cleanest bass I've ever heard smily_headphones1.gif

 

Not the best sub, shouldve gone dual 12s looking back now, but i got a great deal on a Kicker Solo-Baric L7 15in 2ohm DVC in an approx. 5.5 cu.ft. sealed box with polyfill and extremely rigid. Amp is Rockford Fosgate Prime 750w mono with a birth sheet of 900w RMS. 0 gauge Rockford Fosgate wire throughout, short as possible, well grounded.

 

2013 Alpine receiver (best year yet high quality DACs) with some nice component boston acoustics speakers, amped with alpine in-line amp. Total cost under $500 :)

Very nice. Those L7 can kick ass with a proper amp.

Interested in hearing what people consider good car audio.
Most of the time it's just obnoxiously loud with extremely loose bass =\

Youre right, most of the time its obnoxiously loud with uncontrolled bass. But car audio can be extremely technical, depending on the vehicles acoustics--proper box selections as well as a proper amp or amps are much overlooked. A lot of times someone will look into a specific subwoofer and then just slab any amp or decides on a amp based on the maximum wattage when he/she should really be paying attention to the RMS wattage of the amplifier. Anyways, when building a car audio system is approached properly with things like sound deadeners, amp with more than enough RMS watts over what the sub's RMS calls for, proper box size, etc., it can sound pretty amazing. Distortion inside the vehicle is the #1 reason most car audio setups sound like crap.

I consider my car a lost cause in terms of audio because of all the complex curves of the space and inability to create a real soundstage. And since music isn't my main endeavor while driving, I'm satisfied with a typical "premium" audio package.

I agree with you. It's not really worth the money and damage done to the car to get great audio. I too have looked past all that and settled with the premium option, it sounds fine and I do not feel the need to upgrade it. "Friends don't let friends buy Bose" but the premium Bose package sounds pretty darn good.

Lol, it's in the el camino. But I preferred not to tear up the interior of my G35 which has the premium Bose system.

After listening to a HD-700, my first reaction was that I simply couldn't believe how bad the Sennheiser Momentus and the B&W P5 sounded. Then I knew I should spent more than $300 on a pair of headphones.

I let a friend (owner of beats studio -- yes, it's another beats story) use my UE6000, which are hardly considered high-end headphones, and I think I may have converted him. He's not going go out and buy HD650's or anything (he laughed at the fact I went to a headphone meet on the weekend :/) but he "loved the sound and clarity" so much, we went to an apple store and he almost got himself a pair. Unfortunately that my only -sort of- success story. My entire family and most of my friends (who aren't already crazy about headphones) think I'm stupid.
