    Watches - another passion of ours, it seems...post your pics!

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    oh man.... apparently the comments I have seen about clamping force are no joke... hopefully these things loosen up a bit after some use? I am liking the sound but I'm not that pleased with the headvice clamping force.

    So inadvertent portable CD player Shootout occurred... I have a Sony D-2 (japan 1988 (i think the last number of the year is illegible)... and a 1993 Panasonic SL-S150... well perhaps a not surprising verdict is the D-2 > D131 > SL-S150 ... In my listening the D-2 has the best bass response...

    adds bass to the listening experience... placement is key... hence the large mouse pad.. =p also $14~ at Total Wine (12pk) ... well worth the investment for improved bass response.
