    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    How can you have a Naim DAC-V1 and HD800s and use a Schiit Vali with it?????  Naim and HD800's is high-end stuff and you've obviously invested a lot of money in this only to crap it up with a cheap Schiit Vali?  It makes no sense to me...absolutely none.  Unless maybe you suddenly fell into...

    Sony's DSD-capable PHA-2 portable headphone amp/DAC

    Thanks so much for your impressions.  Really glad to hear about the PHA-2's low noise floor...super excited about adding a little energy to my W4's.  I guess I shouldn't really worry about how it'll handle my HD700's and 600's, since I'll mainly be using this on the go.  Also, good to hear that...

    Sony's DSD-capable PHA-2 portable headphone amp/DAC

    Zilch, I know you wish the PHA-2 had better power specs.  It wasn't made to drive high impedance headphones.  Sony knows their market and it doesn't include people who listen to LCD-2's or Sennheiser HD650's on the go.  It was made to pair with efficient headphones and IEM's.  I have HD700's...

    Sony's DSD-capable PHA-2 portable headphone amp/DAC

    As soon as you add DSD capability, you have to add even more battery capacity and the battery is already too big.  You can't have everything.  This is a portable player with hi-resolution DAC and a great built in audiophile grade digital headphone amplifier section.  It already takes up too much...

    why do people go on appreciation threads and bash the subject of appreciation?

    Sony's DSD-capable PHA-2 portable headphone amp/DAC

    Just ordered one from a Japanese seller on amazon.  Picked expedited shipping and should get here next week!  Super stoked!  I'm planning on this being the centerpiece of my bedside iPod/iPad system.  Mainly for music but also for the occasional movie or tv show I want with great sound.  Will be...

    Really?  It sounded bad out of a 100 dollar Chinese amp? No way.  Seriously folks, why are you even pairing a 1k dollar headphone with this stuff.  Fiio products, while a bargain (I guess) for budding audiophiles on a budget, they should not been seen as anything more than that.  It would make...

    I think most people believe that headphones and speakers need to be "burned-in" because they actually have moving parts/drivers that change over time.  Whereas there's more debate on Amps and DACs - electronics...which I also believe need to be burned in.  Not surprised at all of your findings...

    How do I make my HD 600's sound more like speakers?

    Take the drivers out of them and mount them it tiny little wooden cabinets. You could then drive them with a nice little tube amp!

    Well, it doesn't mention any audiophile headphones, let alone HD700's or anything relating to HD700's so....thanks?

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    First of all, congratulations.  Secondly, what attributes did the K701 have that the Hd600's didn't.  Thirdly, I've always been curious about the Bryston.  What's it like and have you compared it to a Burson Soloist?  I'm imagining that the Bryston is super fast and neutral sounding.  Also...

    Looks like somebody's a Classical music lover!  Nice set up...have always wondered what that Bryston sounds like.

    Sennheiser didn't make this cable for portable use. It seems like a very high quality cable, IMHO. It is silver plated wire that was especially designed for performance....I would think twice about downgrading.

    What kind of music do you mainly listen to? What's your amp and dac?
