    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    You really don't want the clamping force, it'll ruin the expensive ear cushions. The clamping force of the stock headphones sucks.

    44,100 vs 192,000 sample rates - correct me if I'm wrong.

    There is no doubt that they do not sound any better, sorry but there is no humanly audible difference.

    No it won't highlight flaws and no there is no advantage whatsoever. What sort of matters is if it's a 24 bit DAC but not really.

    Looking for 'entry level' desktop DAC between 100$-200$

    Well you don't need a headphone amp right? I wouldn't bother with a DAC/amp then.   It will not make a huge difference but I would recommend the JDS Labs ODAC or HRT Music Streamer II.   They are both 24 bit DAC's and the former has proven transparent performance.    They will sound...

    Best amps portable and desktop for HD650 under $350usd New Used or Refurbished

    Quote: I'm lost you seem to be saying that solid state amps are not one unit.    Buy an ODAC/O2 and you'll have a single small unit that sounds better than tube amps and badly designed solid state amps also.

    The ear cushions don't affect the sound unless they get really squashed. They are washable and can last for years.

    Post your computer specs!~

    Hmmmm. . . my new-ish laptop is   intel i7 @ 2.2 GHz CPU 6 GB DDR3 RAM nvidia geforce 630M 2 GB GPU 750 GB HDD 15" 1920x1080 screen   I loves it. I only use it to play tf2 and that's it really so I don't need anything ridiculous.   It was $900 and no other laptop under $1k...

    Brief Odac impressions

    DAC's do not have gain. . . and 2 volts is normal not high. I thought with a speaker amp you use the pre-amp alone to control the volume? How are you using the ODAC alone in a ODAC/O2 combo?

    Best amps portable and desktop for HD650 under $350usd New Used or Refurbished

    I would avoid tube amps and A-GD like a plague and instead get a ODAC/O2. That way you know you are buying something that actually has better real performance than the E9.

    DIY amp/DAC with better measurements than O2/ODAC?

    I forgot about this thread, was just annoyed about the more stupid comments but probably should not have bothered posting.   "Conversely, The O2 measurements all the faibois are using as their bible to defend their opinions come from the same guy who designed the damn thing. A creator cannot...

    A non-sense probably - From Sennheiser 558 HD to 598 HD

    Quote: Sure it does. I'm listening to the HD modified 558's right now and they sound the same as the modified HD 555's. The case just isn't that significant with open headphones. . . that's kind of the point of them.

    A non-sense probably - From Sennheiser 558 HD to 598 HD

    They all have the same drivers so they cannot possibly sound much different. Don't waste your money.

    How tight is the Sennheiser 5x8 series?

    They are clampy yet still comfortable.

    Where does Mid-Fi end , and Hi-Fi Start?

    About $100. I am amazed by the HD 555's. If you think ~$300 headphones are not hi-fi you are just delusional.    i.e. The HD 650 is not mid-fi. The HD 800's measured performance is nearly identical to models all the way down to the HD 580's (again like $100).    The new ~$1000 headphones...

    What is FLAC?

    Quote: Professional quality would be 24 bit, and there isn't much difference from mp3.   I use level 8 because I can, averages 70% of the original file size.

    Easy solution is not to buy **** schiit products. That way you will never risk damaging your headphones either way.
