Here is the impressions/pictures thread
I got to hear a 009/kgss combo IT was really really good. The sound from that setup is amazing, But I doubt I could or will ever spend that amount of money on that type a of setup. Also it did seem a little to good for my tastes. Though the sound was just to good I like to have fun when i am listening to music and i just did not have fun with them its the same way with me and HD800 just way to analytic for me. For Chase and Cory though those guys were loving that thing. AGAIN excellent headphone construction was amazing. Awesome comfort. Just that price. I just could never justify that price ever. Chase I want to thank you for letting me listen to those amazing headphones and you sound extremely happy with them, Hope you have them when you get back to Ohio from your "deployment".
HD800's I want to revisit these I hate the HD800 out of a DNA Sonett it is just to boring for me and (EDIT this part out) (again though the sound was amazing it just was not for me at all, BUT) the HD800 through the SPL Phonitor is ******* AMAZING, I really really liked playing around with all the settings and eventually i found the ones that liked that brought the HD800 to life for me what ever they were lol amazing Headphones and amp combo Cory please get that amp ;)
HD700's I wanted to confirm that those were the Open headphones that i wanted to match with my Darth Beyers. But i am conflicted now because I heard another,which I will talk about next. But the HD700 has enough detail that I like and its fun enough not to put me to sleep the HD700/Phonitor setup is amazing as well, all the settings are just fun to play with.
HE500, Jeff really? Really why did you do that to me I was nearly set on the HD700 with price drop and all and then the sound was so good. And then you had to bring these gems, lol. Thank you those things sounded so nice next to my Darth's I really really really like the match that I had similar sounding open can with a lot more detail and can get as low as the darths and still sound amazing. Though these headphones were probably the second loudest leaking headphones next to the 009's, I think that is a compromise I can deal with.
Darth Beyers. DAT bass it is just sooo fun I really like the lows and how they don't "really" cover up any of the other frequencies to badly. Its a nicely done Headphone and if you have not gave them a fair shake do it. you may be surprised just dont go into these headphones and expect something like a 009/hd800 sound wise, Expect to have your head shaking back and forth from the bass hitting your face.
HD600's Again such a good headphone the bass was tight not darkish/veiled as bad as a HD650, great detail and scales amazing the better amps you hook up to it. I got to hook it up to a DNA Sonett which sounds good kinda warmish boring sound. The Mjolnir sounds even a little more flat still kinda boring. The Phonitor sound was just a very pleasing sound, plus you have so many knobs to change. But I think the best sound for me was the Bottlehead Crack for me anyway it was fun and pleasing to my ears If you have say 600-800 bucks pick up this combo for max Fun. if you want to spend another 200-300 get the Mjolnir, I would say if you like to be analytic with your music.
There were a couple of orthos there as well that were extremely uncomfortable dont remember the names. They did sound really ok though nothing to write home about, but more like nothing to complain about either. They just sounded really ok given enough power they were the funnest uncomfortable headphones i have ever tried
HD650 I did not spend to much time with them this time, Really just a song from an REGA RP1 and Valhalla. That Schiit was really good Schiit Tad on the darker side not really bad though.
Mad Dogs 3.0 Not sure how these compare to normal TR50p but they sounded really good to me kinda like a Darth Beyer extremely modified stock headphone made to sound better then the original. I like the lows on these and the over all sound was very nice.
