    Why doesn't anybody like the Denon AH-D600

    @Malfunkt I completely understand you. The AH-D600 looks quite nice and is well assembled. They are very comfortable as they offer space enough for most ears (and heads!) and have a reasonable weight. They provide good sound isolation (great for work) and, finally, they are tuned to a 'fun'...

    Audiophiles, Gear in Switzerland?

    At some point you should take a look at Interlaken area; l'd also recommend doing a hike in the Aletsch Glacier... l'm enjoying London, yes, but l'd rather be in Geneva if l'm honest. We were in Cambridge, MA (which l absolutely loved) before coming here. We'll see where my wife's job takes us...

    Audio-Gd Reference 10

    Ever since l bought my Reference 10.32 l have been very, very happy with it. l have bought many headphones (and sold a few) but l've never had the urge to replace the Reference. But, to answer your question in a simple way, l would certainly say "yes, it is worth $1000, no doubt." If l were to...

    SOLD: HiFiman HE-400 Great Shape

    This is a wonderful headphone and at this price is a steal. l feel like buying it even though l already have a pair. If l were you l wouldn't even sell it in case you regret it in the future, unless, of course, you absolutely need $125 (and that is minus Paypal and shipping...). GLWS!

    JVC HP-DX1000 Owners Unite!

    No, not yet. l thought of doing it, but the beautiful single ended plug puts me off. l'm sure l'll do it sooner or later :-)

    JVC HP-DX1000 Owners Unite!

    Oh my, the last person l could think of who would let the JVCs go is you, Luckbad. l feel very sorry to hear that. l hope things get better soon (and they aren't too bad at the moment)

    JVC HP-DX1000 Owners Unite!

    I agree. It looks really suspicious.    On these dates (i.e. Christmas round the corner), we have to be careful with scams. Things that are too good to be true, probably are.    The DX1000 is listed as of right now at $770 in amazon.jp Shipping to USA should increase the price. From there to...

    Audio-Gd Reference 10

    Thanks for letting us know.     Since l like 'change' in my life, l'm likely to try the upgrade. In any case, it'll have to wait.   Enjoy the new sound!

    Why doesn't anybody like the Denon AH-D600

    Nice. l think they can be a great HP for work as not only they don't leak much, but also they isolate very well. l used to alternate between these and the Beyers DT-770.    Do you know what l started to appreciate about the Denons? The fact that they sound better than many HPs while listening...

    DENON AH-D600 replacement ear pads

    If memory serves (l left my D600 at home in Switzerland) all you need to do is as shown in this video (go to 0:55). l know, the video displays an Audio-Technica model, but it's the same mechanism.   l'm sorry, l don't have suggestions for earpads replacement l'm afraid...   Good luck! (And...

    No, sorry, l didn't try those HPs (l only 'auditioned' the D2k for a short while -music only).

    Why doesn't anybody like the Denon AH-D600

    (I'm on mobile phone so excuse me if I have typos). I also have the X1s. They were my 'go-to' HPs for movies until l realised l preferred the AH-D600s. I mainly noticed that the Denons offer a closer to a subwoofer experience; and how certain 'movie sounds' are better reproduced by them. I...

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    This is what l paid for mine back on 12th November 2014. l paid 396,75€ (taxes to Switzerland and shipping included). Weeks later, l got around 22€ back from taxes. So in total l paid around 375€ (remember, November 2014!). lf l were you l'd open a tab on amazon.de with the 700s and l'd keep on...

    JVC HP-DX1000 Owners Unite!

    You are right  It's just that this morning, when l saw the scratch, l truly wondered how it could ever happened... and yes, l also feared they would break apart. But yeah, if worse come to worse, glue or duct tape will do ,

    JVC HP-DX1000 Owners Unite!

      (l understood you meant 'HP stand', don't worry).   My wife bought it for me in Germany. However, l think they also sell in USA (should you live there). lt's called "Room's". l just quickly checked and you can buy them here, for example. Also found this thread in head-fi.   lt's a quality...

    'Good' morning guys,   This is what l woke up today to:     See the mark next to ther 'R'? l don't know what to think about it. So far, it just seems as if the paint came off a bit but... given the JVCs reputation for breaking in this area, l am suspicious.    l bought my pair in April...

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

      l have no doubts! l believe the HD-700 is technically a better HP than the 650. And the rest, as l said: simply a matter of taste :-)

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    l guess, as usually, it's a matter of taste. Having said that, today, l decided to sell my HD-700. l just hardly ever use them and, when l do, l quickly go and reach another HP (like HD-650). l guess, at this stage of my life l prefer warmer sound.    Now, just to make the point: l do find the...

    Little Dot MKIII Tube Rolling

    Thanks a lot for the quick and informative response MIKELAP.   Here the link in case someone else is interested.    IMO, the 6N6P-IR seems to be 'the way to go' (price/performance ratio)... l might get it for Christmas so that l have time to get more familiar with the sound of the MKIII with...
