Also consider the SoundMAGIC HP200. An underestimated open can that apparently sounds like a fun version of the HD650.

What amp for the HD650 Soren?
post #648 of 930

Soren, out of curiosity, how often do you listen to your Tzar's? Can it really steal hours from all other top dogs?

Just ordered a PB2 and a dragon cable with Hirose connector. Hope to replicate Sorensiim's 3-dimensional experience with his new rig smily_headphones1.gif I was actually looking at a new lens for my D700 but cannot resist the urge.

Oh yes. The LCD2v2 sounds spectacular but like with the HD800 we bump into that nasty (money spent)/(time used) ratio. Plus, the HD650 is more comfortable. I really like those cans ;)

They actually come out every now and then, when evaluating new equipment. They are ruthlessly revealing and perfect for shining a spotlight on any bad links in your audio chain.

Lol, sorry about your wallet man! Photography AND audio?

If you ever feel like selling them to fund something else, keep me in mind mate ;) If it hits on a time period where my student wallet is slightly on the thicker side, I might be the buyer.

 

My reason is similar to yours but not exactly the same. For home use, I want something I can easily pull out from my ears and it shouldn't isolate like hell. Well an open can leaks sound it is not good for me either, so universal iems are seems to be the only option. Without ciem level isolation and easy to put in, take it out. Ah for the moment, I still use SE5way for both home and on to go, I think these extraordinary ciems taught me so much about my ears, my hearing, my tastes of music. Best ever purchase.

 

Another question for you, hope you don't mind.

 

A gear like DX50 + PB2 or Quickstep (you name it) can go better than DX100 alone? Only sound-wise but, I don't ask about UI, size etc.

I actually like the Tzar for what they do. A very specialized tool that I sometimes reach for, but not something everyone needs to have in their toolbox :smile:

 

I found the DX50 + [A good amp] to be sonically so close to the DX100 that it was more a matter of taste to decide which was better. Then with the DX50 compared to the DX100 you get the advantages of UI, battery life, size, etc. Really looking forward to trying the DX90!

I really should have thrown my Paperwhite into this picture:

 

I sold my 5D2 & L-primes and got the Fuji X100s instead. So compact that I can take it anywhere and since I can't change the lens, it hasn't evolved into a financial black hole like very often DSLRs do :smile:

What worries me are the knives in the background lmao :atsmile:

 

I really like your desk setup, so clean quite inspiring working on it. What is its purpose and do you have more than one desk space?

Nice and clean setup. Been eyeing the X100S myself for that retro-look but I have the NEX 5 for my portable. Heard that it takes great pictures (x100s).

The HD650 is supremely comfortable, very relaxing to listen to and lets you just lean back and enjoy the music. They feel like coming home from work and just collapsing in your favorite chair.

But "fun" isn't really a word I'd use to describe them.
