    Sennheiser HD 600's infernal clamp. Solutions?

    So my HD 600 just arrived today. Eager to listen to them, I tried them on, and then... The pain! These things clasp my head so hard that it hurts and block my circulation (I can hear my heartbeat in my ears, not really a pleasant sensation when I'm listening at low volumes). After a hour I had...

    Looking for a SS balanced amp for HD 800 for ~$500

    You know what? You are totally right. Now I'm looking at some Audio-gd DAC/Amp combos. I want the best achievable fidelity, I don't wish to beautify or color the sound and from what I've heard they should be among the most transparent, so...

    Should I even upgrade?

    Since I can't very much get my head around audiophile terminology because I don't have (yet) any terms of comparison, I'll try with an analogy: Let's say I have a 50 inches display, which if I'm close enough to will fill my entire field of vision just like a pair of headphones covers the...

    Should I even upgrade?

    For a while now I've been thinking of upgrading my current lo-fi (for the standards of this place) setup composed by an Asus Xonar Essence STX and a pair of Sennheiser HD 595. Being the methodical person I am, before venturing in a blind purchase (since I don't have the opportunity to try most...

    Looking for a SS balanced amp for HD 800 for ~$500

    Well, I don't really mind going the used route. I'd already seen the Mjolnir while I was browsing other Schiit products, though it didn't occur to me that I could've went looking for a used one. How does the Bobby compare to it?

    Looking for a SS balanced amp for HD 800 for ~$500

    Are there any in that prize range that nicely complement / don't make too prominent HD 800's supposed brightness?

    New Little Dot Amp?

    I'm also interested in this. I was thinking of getting a MKIVSE but then I stumbled onto it.   A slightly off-topic question: I'm almost totally ignorant when it comes to electronics, but almost every "entry level" single ended OTL/OCL Amp I've seen comes with a driver tube and two power...

    Upgrading to Sennheiser HD 600/650, Little Dot MK IV SE and Little Dot DAC I

    Thanks, I've looked into the HE-500, and they seem indeed to get a lot of favor. Unfortunately I don't have the possibility to try them, and to be honest I don't think I'd very much like the weight; also there doesn't seem to be enough consensus that they're all around better than the HD 6X0...

    Upgrading to Sennheiser HD 600/650, Little Dot MK IV SE and Little Dot DAC I

    I'll start with my story:   I began lurking here three or four years ago, when my last pair of earphones broke and I couldn't bear anymore putting uncomfortable crackling pieces of plastic inside my ears. After a bit of reading and discovering all the wonderful things I couldn't afford, I...
