    Sennheiser HE-1

    I had the chance to shoot an introductory event with the HE-1 a while ago and I begged for some time to have a bit of a product shot. It's been a while since this happened, kind of forgot I used to post here so hence the delay. Anyway, I present some clean fun headphone pr0n: I got some time...

    Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread

    The HD600 is what brought me into this game and I've stayed with it through thick and thin. I go back and forth atm between an HE-4XX and my old Sennheisers but tbh putting the HD600 back on feels like coming home. Only headphone that could make me forget them is the HE-1 :) , thank god that is...

    Question about FR graphs

    How much personal difference is there with the shape of the pinna and perhaps of the ear canal?

    First European Head-Fi Meet in Berlin! Help Needed with Organizing!

    I can probably go to Berlin a day in advance and help set up the venue for the meet. It would be nice if we could send out a mass PM interest check to all the EU headfiers, because I think a lot of people don't see this.   edit: if we have the date set, maybe we can ask jude to have anybody...

    Worst recorded/Mastered Albums

    Try anything by the Go! team for intentionally bad SQ. This is one of the better quality tracks they have on a side note: It's interesting to listen to the original version of Raw Power from (Iggy Pop &) The Stooges. I recall reading that they were going for a deliberately bad sound...

    Need recommendation for a LOW sensitivity can in the $100 range

    You might want to check if you can adjust the gain on the dac with a jumper or something, a lot of equipment has this.

    Does the fall of music ever depress you? It does me.

    So i finally received my HiVi Swan D1080MKII 08 Actives

    I've been looking into DIYing a pair of speakers with HiVi drivers. Happy to hear these are nice.

    Building a Headphone Measurement Lab

    Tyll, maybe this has been discussed before, but have you thought of normalizing based on these curves? As far as I understand it, now you are compensating for the ear canals FR, but the psychoacoutics are important too.

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    Nice summary. I recall the debate about the headfi cable test, I'm happy it happened in the end. If we ever have a big euro meet I will try to assemble a Blind testing stand (not so sure about double blind as I will swap the stuff, but I am planning not to interact with the subject in any way)...

    Headphones for jazz (for a beginner)

    K501's have a wonderful midrange, should work well for vocals. Not perfect phones (don't expect too much bass), but the guy who's pair I auditioned has avoided upgrading to the 701 because he felt the midrange was lacking.

    Audeze LCD-2 Orthos

    Btw, does anybody have access to measuring equipment that could verify the waterfall graphs on the audeze website? Those decay plots look too good to be true.

    Audeze LCD-2 Orthos

    Truth be told I was surprised they were in the same projected price range as the HE-5LE, because I assume there is a big difference in manufacturing costs between the two (china <-> US , plastic <-> wood). The current price seems to reflect that better. It's also a good move psychologically IMO...
