First DAC/AMP to Power My HD650

Posted

Pros: Price, Reputation of the D1, Bit-perfect USB support out of the box

Cons: None so far

I got the D1+ with all the upgrades after reading all the awesome reviews about the original D1 on head-fi. It was pretty clear to me that the headphones I received for Christmas (Sennheiser HD 650) weren't going to work well with a 3.5mm jack out of my laptop. So after hours of researching the best options for my budget (250-350 bucks USD) I went with the D1+ and hoped for the best. After unpacking it and hooking it up I played a few songs with Foobar2000 and was very pleased. I've listened to hours of music now and am still pleased with the unit, hearing micro-details in Pink Floyd and The Beatles as well as diving into albums I would other-wise not care about (good kid, m.A.A.d...

Good Starter Headphone

Posted

Pros: Great Value Sound Quality

Cons: Comfort, Build Quality

I previously owned a pair of Klipsch Image S4 earbuds after reading a review on C-Net about how good they sounded. After hearing music with the Klipsch I started to crave for a richer sound. I came across head-fi and searched for the best cans in my price range. There were two contenders it came down to the Grado SR225i and a pair of Sennheiser's for which model I can not recall. After calling around local audio shops I finally found the Grados. They didn't have a display pair but the owner of the shop was nice enough to open a brand new pair for me to test out. I feel in love instantly. The sound quality was like nothing I had heard at that point in my life (I've heard better...

Great Christmas Present

Posted

Pros: Comfort, Build Quality, Detail

Cons: Open back lets in noise, after hearing them with an amp. you'll have to drop another $300+

Just got a pair of these for Christmas and have to say that I was very impressed with the box they came in, very solid packaging, and neatly organized cord. There is a 3.5mm adapter included in the box, something I was not used to coming from a pair of Grado SR225i cans. The build quality is very good, I don't feel like I will scratch or dent them without a decently high tumble. The cord is detachable and feels like it will not likely give out anytime soon. As for comfort, I never really found my old Grados that uncomfortable (I know you guys/gals on Head-fi and reviews on Amazon always talk about Grados being uncomfortable) but now I can hardly wear them after having used...
