So like the others mentioned we did a little round robin with 1 source 3 amps and 4 headphones

Eee Pee's Sony sacd player with dual outputs out to his Mjolnir and Tus's Stax amp out to Eee Pees DNA Sonett

 

     Mjolnir was running Darth Beyers dual 3 pin  and HD600 single 4 pin

 

     Sonett was running the K601 Single Ended

 

     Stax amp for Stax headphone 6 pin pro

 

Headphones included in this were a V4 Darth Beyers,Stax Lambda Pro,HD600 and K601 w/702 pads

We scored 1-5: 5 being the highest .

we used 6 basic/general categories: Sound Presentation, Bass, highs,Mids,Sound quality,and comfort, again this is just general categories.

 

There was no discussion what so ever, and opinions did not mean anything all i wanted was a number

Score is out of 30 per person with total score of 120

We listened to 3mins of an ALt- J song dont remember which one though

These Numbers are totally Arbitrary and irrelevant, to how these actually sound. Saying that this was done on a whim and should not effect any persons thoughts on any of those phones used, Most of us minus Shawn had a few beers or more in us towards the end of the night when we did this, but it was fun either way!!

Thanks J.  Nice job.

 

I can't remember the song either!

 

Again, we need to either do half numbers or go to 10.  Too many times I was between whole numbers and might have picked a higher or lower number.  Skews things a little.


Bass on the Darths is just too much.  It always stood out as prominent and thick.  Opposite that, I found it lacking weight or heft on the Lambda.  Might have been cause it was Darths then Lambdas?  Can't remember the order.

 

Comfort for me and the 600s is probably cause they're molded to my head.  Though I gave 3 out of 4 a 5.  I must have a good head shape.  :biggrin:

 

The only SQ to recieve a 5 was Nathan and the Lambdas.  Haha!

post #70 of 78

Well, I'm selling my Lambdas to get a different Lambda setup that will hopefully have significantly less strident highs and more bass.

post #71 of 78

I kept hearing the screech in the upper registers.  Did you hear it Shaun (Sean, Shawn)?

Technically how that was scored by you C you should own those k601's as your next headphone as its only 1 point below your HD600's 

 

Shawn your numbers change massively with the Darths by the song which is amazingly weird

 

And the numbers i had were nearly the same for every single can regardless of song 

 

Nathan you should just sell everything and get Stax...lol

 

For me I think i would like to try an HD700,Gs1000, LCD 2 r2 as those are similarly priced.

I know, I liked em.  I like the 702 or 701 Anniversary also at Dayton.  I'm interested in the new 712.  

 

But they're a stopgap towards a new DNA Stratus.

 

And there's no need if I have something that scored better.  :biggrin:

Mjolnir anytime you want to sell let me know i will help with that stop gap of yours ;)

Not really. It's pretty easy to see how a sound signature works with one genre but not another... why not the same for different songs? The bass was just way too boomy for me in that particular song.

 

And EeePee, it's Shawn. :gs1000smile:
