    My Thoughts: Why are the Sennheiser HD600 and HD650 Still so Popular?

    When the Sennheiser HD600 and HD650 came out in 1996 (I think) and 2003, respectively, they were on top of the game. Ergonomic, great-sounding headphones in a comparatively nascent consumer audiophile headphones market. Needless to say, since the 2010s, the market has absolutely exploded, and...

    iPhone 7 Compressed Sound on Chord Mojo?

    Here is a bit of a mystery. I use my Chord Mojo plugged into my iPhone 7 via USB cable and CCK lightning adaptor. I notice that every time I listen to my headphones this way, everything seems dull and compressed. The bass is sucked out, the treble is dull, and the soundstage and image seem...

    Wireless Earphones: My Review of the Smartomi MOTTO Wireless ANC Earphones

    DISCLAIMER: This is a unit that Smartomi sent to me to review. Design The MOTTO are wireless Bluetooth earphones that have a dongle on the end, attached to two-foot cables that terminate to an inner-ear-outer-ear earbud. The earbud design is somewhat reminiscent to Sony earphones, and has...

    Astell and Kern Kann Digital Out and iOS Device Compatibility?

    Hey folks, I wanted to ask something knowledgeable within this community who may be able to help me with a question I had about potentially buying the Astell and Kern Kann to use as my portable rig with my full-size headphones. I currently use the Chord Mojo with my iPhone 7, and I was looking...

    Chord Mojo vs. OPPO HA-2SE Comparison Review

    I'm not sure about the Pico's amp section, but the Mojo will likely be more powerful than it. As for the DAC, no doubt the Mojo's DAC will be better. It's the most advanced DAC that you will find in a device like this for under 1000 dollars.    The Mojo just has less little goodies like...

    Review by 'bpandbass' on item 'Chord Electronics Mojo'

    Putting the Mojo into Perspective:   The Mojo competes more with high-end portable DAC/amps like the Centrance HIfi-M8, the Cypher Labs Theorem 720 (now discontinued), and the considerably more expensive Sony PHA-3. So when considering those competitor prices, the 600 dollar MSRP of the Mojo...

    Chord Mojo vs. OPPO HA-2SE Comparison Review

    I'm only giving my own opinion, and you know what people think about others' opinions. I do find the humor in my statement that people would go with the better value model on this site, though. We are chasing the magic dragon after all.

    Chord Mojo vs. OPPO HA-2SE Comparison Review

    Correction done. Thank you for bringing issue this up. I think that was a major oversight for Chord to not remedy that USB noise issue. To me the iOS integration doesn't feel as well implemented as the OPPO's does.

    Chord Mojo vs. OPPO HA-2SE Comparison Review

    Introduction   With my iPhone 7 no longer having a headphone jack, and with the portable headphone amplifier and DAC market getting more competitive than ever, I thought it was time to consider making the switch from my larger Schiit Audio Lyr 2 class A hybrid desktop amp, and an external DAC...

    Review by 'bpandbass' on item 'AKG K712 Pro'

    Allow me to preface this review with some background information.   I have experience listening to different present-day AKGs, including the Q701 Quincy Jones Signature, the K702 65th Anniversary Edition (Austrian-made), the K7XX Massdrop First Edition, the K240 Studio, and the K612 Pro. The...

    Reply to review by 'bpandbass' on item 'Sony MDR R10'

    @TheOneInYellow Well I surely hope for a future with audio that can replicate the listening pleasure of the R10, and not just try to achieve it by boosting the bass, sampling rate, or treble volume.

    @xEcuToR I haven't heard the CD3000, but I know about it and how rare and hard to find it is. I have a friend who overhauled a broken down model that was given to him. What I was trying to get at was I thought the midrange was extremely transparent and realistic to my ears. It didn't have an...

    My Impressions of the Meridian Audio Director (Direct DAC)

    That's a shame. That is probably why the Direct DAC is being sold at half price. It's a very good DAC for the money. I didn't have any driver problems with it on my Macbook Pro, but it may be a different story for Windows users.

    Comparison FLAC recordings of Modi 2 Uber and Musicstreamer ii plus

    Thanks for this comparison. I have a very similar setup: HD650, Modi, and Lyr 2. And I noticed all of my headphones sounded compressed, veiled, the treble had some nasty sibilant spikes (even the HD650), and the bass was dull, lacked extension and sucked out. And when I plugged the Modi into...

    Favorite headphones based on company house sound?

    This is a question I'm throwing out to you all in the full size headphone community. I've owned quite a few different pairs headphones for various amounts of time, and I've noticed house sound traits to them that I enjoy. And this is what to me is a headphone that has the traits I desire: The...

    Reply to review by 'bpandbass' on item 'Sennheiser HD 600'

    Great review. I own the HD650 myself and I appreciate the extra upper treble, smoother upper mids and warm mid bass. But the HD600 has always intrigued me, especially that 90s marbled finish.

    @G Tone Do you know what model of Rockets yours were? Were they the 6J1P's? I'm looking into getting a pair on eBay but there are a few different versions at different prices. Sounds like you have more than enough power with your HE400s. Have you considered upgrading to the HE400i?
