    Rafe's Inner Fidelity

    I think that for the comments, there is a problem of different user database between innerfidelity web-site and Stereophile. Real pity they are no more.

    Rafe's Inner Fidelity

    And, by the way, until now at least, Tyll's and Katz's contents seem all online, and I don't see rafelifestyle contents anywhere. What a pity 🙃

    A headphone tribute goodbye to Tyll from Innerfidelity

    I wish all the best for Tyll and his new adventure. In the meantime, I was worried by the new style of Innerfidelity, with two almost pure marketing post and the article about "measurements tell not all the story, how to measure emotional connection?" Oh dear... I expressed my concerns on...

    Reply to review by 'amartignano' on item 'Beyerdynamic T90 Premium Stereo Headphone'

    Hi @Irsdrn, yes, the Dt880 is less coloured, more correct, but also less fun to listen to. Not an easy choice without auditioning.

    Sennheiser HD800 S Impressions Thread (read first post for summary)

    My opinion is that there's a reason why the stock pads are made in a certain way.

    Sennheiser HD660S... Finally a successor for the HD650?

    Or "grainy". Yes, very misleading.

    Sennheiser HD660S... Finally a successor for the HD650?

    My two cents: I think that the Hd660S has one of the best real detail accompanied by smooth and relaxed response among the dynamic headphones I've heard in my hifi life.

    I think that everyone can do what he likes without your judgement ;)

    Stax SR-L300 Impressions Thread

    Very interesting! Sorry if you already explained elsewhere but... can you please tell the main differences between the L300 and L700? I just love my L300 and I'm looking for info to understand if a future upgrade will be worth the money.

    Sennheiser HD660S... Finally a successor for the HD650?

    To balance latest changes of mind, I must admit that... I still love and prefer my HD660S over my HD600. :) But I don't have to choose, so it's an easy preference, because I can always go for one or the other (except the fact that lately I'm listening mainly to Stax and all the debate 660S vs...

    Sennheiser HD660S... Finally a successor for the HD650?

    Sennheiser official writer here on headfi said they were different. This started the legend.

    Sennheiser HD660S... Finally a successor for the HD650?

    Aaaahhh! The fresh breath of good, competent and clear listening impressions. I have slightly different preferences (I think I prefer the 660S over the 600, not completely sure, and really liked the hd700), but I totally agree with the described sound differences between the three headphones.

    Sennheiser HD660S... Finally a successor for the HD650?

    That's true, Hd800S and Hd660S are two very different beasts, and the preference is totally subjective. Ps. since yesterday I'm in heaven with the Stax SRS3100 combo, but that's another story.

    Sennheiser HD820

    THE question is: will the pads of the hd820 be installable on the hd800s? :)

    Sennheiser HD660S... Finally a successor for the HD650?

    I'm one of those who doesn't have real problems with the Hd700 peaks. Nevertheless, I find the Hd660S timbrically more accurate.

    Sennheiser HD660S... Finally a successor for the HD650?

    I'm a musician too, plus a physicist. And nor I want to have an argument with you. Overtones = partials other than the fundamental. :wink: aka what makes the timbre of an instrument. And yes, my hd660s compared to my hd600 has less present overtones with voices and strings. Not more or less...

    Sennheiser HD660S... Finally a successor for the HD650?

    That happens :) Nowadays I'm totally fond of the sound of the apparently very mid-fi Hd579, even if I know and hear that technically 660S ore 800S are better. (And still loving them).

    Sennheiser HD660S... Finally a successor for the HD650?

    My point is that: 1)voice and strings overtones in the 660S are less pronounced than the hd600 and the hd650 (although for the hd650 I have to go by memory). And they say the opposite only mentioning freq resp graph, so it comes the 2nd point... [overtones presence and overall response tilt -...

    Sennheiser HD820

    I've never had real problems with the headband, but I always felt that the weight of the headphone on the head was concentrated there... until I understood that I was regulating the pads too low. Once secured them in a proper position, the weight was well distributed on top and laterally (and...

    Sennheiser HD660S... Finally a successor for the HD650?

    Poor Hd700 :wink: I'm very happy I've purchased them, before they go out of the market by popular demand :wink: Oh, by the way, I think Hd700 drivers are very good ones. Used in the hd600 series frame like in the Hd660S...: I think I've never heard an headphone so accurate in harmonics and...
