post #571 of 785

I just bought a new HE-6 and need an amp to power it. Thank you for the reference to the SMSL SA-50. It sounds like this amp really can drive the HE-6 beautifully and it only costs $70 at Amazon! Wow, I think I am ordering it. :)

We are all family here in this exclusive thread, we can talk...:P

Go n get the SMSL 50 if u are short on coffeetablespace like me, or short on funds like me...

u wont feel that the HE6 is running out of steam,

and it made my LCD2 brilliant, and the D7000 driverpopping great...never heard n felt the excursion of the drivers that way on the d7000..but on the D7000, there is a v low humm...very slight, maybe it is too sensitive..but once the music is on, it is a non issue..for me.)

Thanks for the offer but have to pass for now. Haven't even tried the 770 pads myself plus I'm in Europe so with shipping and all.. meh. I'm sure someone here likes to take them off of you?

So how much are those pads grizzlybeast?

post #580 of 785

they sent em to me to try so I dont know. I keep leaving them in the car.

 

Hey I just wanted to mention some things about these hp's

 

So this time around I do think that I may have been a bit overzealous about the bass slam. Before on a lot of hip hop songs I had the bass boosted though. I dont know why but these things are very sensitive to bass boost. 

 

The other thing is that a lot of my poor recordings sound like crap on these. My T50rp mods do better with poor recordings and low quality stuff. I still prefer the T50 mods over them on high quality files as well but only because I like the weightier notes.  These need good music to shine. The source and music can hold them back.

Vibros or HE-500 grizzlybeast?

There is a lot to like about all of them and I can't say exactly what's better just what I prefer. I like a denser sound than the 500 but like a more open sound thAn t50mods so I don't know.
