how do you guys keep dust/carpet fibers, etc off the earcups, ?
do you roll do a few rounds with the lint roller ?
I was using lcd2/he500 for a for a while with the leather cups so this never was a problem..
wish I could put pleather/leather type earcups on these..
I have mine new but also thought already about the lint roller to take off some dust at some point of time. Once I get some replacement pads, I will try to cover them with some very thin leather to have a surface that is less prone to attract any particles.
Yea I really hate this. Sometimes I will use a lint roller, but even that doesn't seem too efficient. I keep my headphones in cases and boxes instead of headphone stands.. Especially in my listening room which somehow gets very dusty.
lint roller it is..
btw I got some adapter earings so I could use the hd800 with balanced Q french silk cable (steve eddy is a great guy) with my mjolnir amp. I have to say this thing is just scary good on classical/film scores.
It took me 15 minutes to figure out you just pull the cables right off, thought they came off in some special way, lol.
Have committed to a pair of HD800s. The HD650s are looking shifty and sad. Many thanks to the contributors to this thread whose thoughts, rants and raves have helped me to this decision.
.. HD800 & HD650 complement imo perfectly.
To be complementary the phones should be of a similar standard but different enough to have both.
The HD800's and any Audeze phone would be good complementary cans. The HD650's are so inferior to the HD800's that I can't see then as complementary.
Agreed, I only kept my HD650 for a very short time alongside the HD800. I think any Audeze (or Hifiman HE500/6) would to better in that role.
I was about to get the HD600 to complement the HD800, I guess it's not such a good idea?
The HD600 is a great headphone but not sure it would see much use next to a properly driven HD800. I really think the HE500 is a nice complement for a few more $$.
The problem is I'm currently running an OTL amp, not sure it would pair well with HE-500.
