    Click while starting and ending an audio file

    Dear all,   Many thanks for your answers, I will not worry about it :D   The click is audible through the headphones, not the actual equipment doing click (not that I am aware of).    Thanks again and have a nice day,   Daniel

    Click while starting and ending an audio file

    Dear all,   I just noticed using an audio file with a high frequency noise on it, which is not audible by people, that when I start and stop the reproduction, the system generates a click. I tried it with two different audio files, one encoded at 96 kHz and one at 192 kHz. I do not listen to...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Hi, IMHO, the HD650 are way better than the HD558/HD598, in another different league. For me, the difference between the HD650 and the HD800 is much smaller than that between the HD650 and the HD558/HD598. But you need an amp for the HD650, and a good source.

    Choosing hd 598, how bad is the sound leak?

    Hi Accordion2214,   The HD598 are open headphones, so they leak a lot of sound. Even worse, you will be able to listen many noises from the enviroment (people talking, the car engine, etc). For the use you need to give to your headphones, I do not think the HD598 are appropiate.    Best...

    Bob Dylan albums - Itunes vs. everything else.

    Dear all,   I am trying to buy the Bob Dylan complete album collection, and there are many sources to get them. So many, that I actually would prefer that his albums were treated as the beatles albums: few releases, few options, good quality.   I will start with Blonde on Blonde: I first...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Hi,   Today I was testing something, and I turn on a CD Player and connected the HD650 directly to it. I have not listen to the HD650 for about 1 month, and though, well… I spent in an amplifier, a DAC, etc, and it sound wonderful directly from the CDP. Then, I listen to the same album from my...

    is it Sibilance?

    Hi all, Yesterday evening I was listening to music using the hd800, and notice that in one recording with female vocals, there were acentuated sounds I never noticed before. They were not "ssssss" or "shh" as the description of sibilance I found here, but there are a lot of acentuated swalow...

    HD 598 vs HD 600 (which has more detail)

    I have never listen to the hd600, but if they are similar enough to the hd650, as people says, there is no contest. I have both the hd650 and the hd598 (and the 558 as well), and the hd650 are in an another league. Also, for my taste, the hd558 sounds better than the hd598: very similar over...

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    Hi people, Many are talking about the fatiguing trebel, but for me the fatigue come from the stereo bass. If I apply the crossover in Jriver when I feel tired of the headphones, the fatigue goes away. The same has been already commented by another member, I think in this same thread. Try it...

    Dear all,   I wake up very early this morning, and as my wife did not want to speak with me at those hours, I had to occupy my time with a little experiment.   First aim was to find a way to verify if there is a way to verify that the process I am using to rip my CD's was properly...

    Clicks and distortion when converting from 96/24 to 44/16

    Dear all,   I am trying to downsample some tracks to make a kind of comparation between sample rates, to verify to myself if I am able to hear any difference. To be sure I am using the same mix of the song, I tried to downsample the tracks using "Switch Sound File Converter", which works fine...

    Many thanks for your answer LugBug1,   The pair I got has been in exhibition in the store, so even if I have not remove the cable ever, probably they did. The connection is loose, if you move the cable, the sound does not get affected at all, so the electrical connection is perfectly fine. And...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Hi,   You could be right. At first I try the combination: CDP > BCL > HD650 and did not like it. The CDP Dac is too bad. I like much better what I wrote in this post:   http://www.head-fi.org/t/691689/use-the-fiio-e17-together-with-the-lehmann-audio-black-cube-linear-how#post_10002901  ...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Hi all,   As I mentioned in another post, I recently updated from a FIIO e09k to a Lehmann Audio BCL.   The sound is much "better" than with the Fiio. But funny enough, the Fiio sound great, even in direct comparation with the BCL. How to explain it? Lets say, with the Fiio, the HD650 is...
