    Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread

    In response to the “veil” question...I was worried about that exact issue myself. Thats why it took me years before actually removing the foam. The change in sound, though subtle, wasn’t what I expected. It was better than I thought might happen. If you think about it, foam behind the driver...

    Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread

    I’ve read many times that others feel there is a so called “veil”. But once I replaced the inner foam with nylon & removed the foam from behind the driver, I then noticed how much more “open” the HD600s sounded. Now it is not a huge difference. I would guess that it is a 15% improvement. But...

    If it responds in any way similar to the HD600s then it will open up the sound, remove the veil as it is often said. I highly recommend it personally.

    Headphones you regretted buying the most

    I originally posted M50x as my regret cans. However, since I modded them I've been enjoying them as my travel cans. I stuffed the driver cavity with some fill, installed HM5 pads (installed them past the slot you normally install the pads into, this way it made the pads more shallow, bringing...

    I've heard nothing but great things about the Mojo. I'd love to hear it together with the HD600s myself. Have you ever heard your cans on a tube amp? Something similar to the Crack.

    Uhh ohh did you get the HD600s on PrimeDay? I was peaking around that day & almost bought the HD598 for $109 because I gave my modded HD558 to a friend, but miss them for gaming now lol. The foam mod on the 558 is supposed to get them close to the 598. Anyways...can I ask what you got your 600...

    Very simple ATH-M50 'balance' mod (less bass, more mids)

    This is a pretty dead thread, I get that. But I recently came across something that I have not heard anyone mention. So I've been messing around with my M50x lately. After falling in love with my HD600s I was at one point "over" the M50x. Since the M50x are my only closed back at this time I...

    Well we all dig your posts & seeing the projects come together. Thx for taking the time to share. And thx for the compliment. I built that Lenco & glad you noticed them matching. Eventually I am going to rebuild the Crack wood base. I used an epoxy glaze on the Lenco but tried a "triple thick"...

    Can it damage my headphones?

    Underpowering a speaker including headphones is worse than overpowering them. If the amp "clips" that means the amp runs out of clean power to drive the speaker. When this happens it flattens the waveform of the incoming sine wave. That turns the signal into heat instead of sound. That can...

    HD598 or SHP9500?

    Wow this is a very interesting thread. I'd love to see some of the responses. I have never heard either pair...however, I do own the HD558 (with foam mod which many say bring it up to par with HD598) & I have the HD600. I have to say, that while I LOVE my HD600 for music, I do prefer my modded...

    Well...finally installed the Speedball upgrade to my Crack after sitting on it for about 4 months. I've been enjoying the standard Crack & wanted to get used to its signature first. Yesterday I got an itch to install it & finished in about 4hrs. I really took my time & enjoyed the build making...

    Really? I actually really enjoyed the stock RCA tubes. I have since purchased a hand full of others including NOS Mullard, NOS GE, RCA clear top & a couple 6as7's. I enjoy them all but the stock seem to be some of the cleanest of the group so far. What do you recommend as far as tubes?....

    Well if you ordered early March then plan on an early/mid April shipment. My SpeedBall took just under 6 weeks to ship. That was during the NewYear time so it was busy for them. I was in no rush tho so it didn't bother me. Funny thing, I STILL haven't installed the SB! Just LOVING my stock...

    Wow this has gotten VERY interesting!! Seeing designs like this trip me out, in a good way tho haha. What tube are you using up front? I'm just curious, why go they all that effort to have a different tube from the stock 12au7? What sonic difference is there? Thx for posting I'm loving it.

    Sennheiser x Massdrop HD6XX Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    I'm no electronics expert but when a headphone has an impedance of 300ohm likeI'm PRETTY sure you need the proper amount of power to get the driver moving. Not just moving a lot (volume) but with good control (less distortion). I had it described to me this way: A low impedance headphone (i.e...

    Hi! Well like you I have not heard the HD650 either. But I own the HD600/Crack (stock) combo. To me the two sound FANTASTIC together. I actually felt the Crack opened up & sped up the sound. Yes they have a very natural sound. It I don't feel it's gooey at all & that is without the Speedball...

    You nailed it on the head! IF...you enjoy building, creating & getting the most from your HD6?? then the Crack is probably THE amp to get (ymmv). The Shiit stuff I have "heard" is really good & you can just plug & play...but...I have read reviews that said the Crack outperforms the Shiit. I...

    By Crack & Speedball now. Enjoy stock Crack then install SB later. It is NOT recommended to build Crack with SB at same time. Bottlehead actually says "Don't do it!" because if you assemble it & have to troubleshoot a problem you will have to remove SB to test. Stock Crack sounds FANTASTIC!!
