    SOLD: Shure 846 (clear) in-ear headphones with bluetooth - MINT condition

    Hi, I am selling my Shure 846 headphones with transparent casing. This edition includes the bluetooth dongle. The headphones are about a year old and they have been very lightly used - they're in mint condition. I am selling them because the sound signature never really grew on me which is why...

    Sennheiser HDV820 DAC & Amplifier

    I am selling my Sennheiser set-up (HD800, HD800S and HDV820). I have had some amazing sessions with these babies over the years but I think I have had my fill with headphones as they've mostly been stored away in the last year or so. So it's time for someone else to love and enjoy them. I am the...

    Hugo TT 2 by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    Yeah, I have built a playlist of music I enjoy where some of the stuff really shines on the current set-up whilst other stuff less so (be it harsh treble, weak bass or other issues). I'll start with listening to a few tracks with my current set up and then switch for an hour to TT2 and in the...

    Hugo TT 2 by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    Thanks, I will give it a try! Adding the Sennheiser to H2 is what completely transformed the music for me, the amp is tuned to these headphones so it drives them really well, it gives them body, huge presence. It will be a very interesting comparison - maybe I'll end up selling the amp, too and...

    Hugo TT 2 by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    My experience of using Toslink vs. USB is similar to yours (albeit on a Macbook). Toslink connection (to H2 anyway) makes the sound significantly more dynamic than USB. I read somewhere that Rob Watts prefers to use optical connections due to zero interference but I didn't expect the difference...

    Hugo TT 2 by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    Many thanks for your insight, I appreciate the advice on how to approach the change in the sound signature and not be put off straight away. I really enjoy the spaciousness and clarity of HD800/S and a change to how the treble is reproduced might address some of the sibilance and harshness that...

    Hugo TT 2 by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    Many thanks for the detailed response, this is very informative and thank you for the links to Rob's presentation! At the end of the day, it's really down to the personal listening experience. It took quite a lot of experimentation for me to find a set up where I finally let go of tweaking and...

    So... it's been two hours since I started listening to Hugo 2 on my HD800S and so far, the clarity is wonderful, however, there is a distinct lack of bass. I was previously listening on a two-year old Pioneer AV receiver (don't flame me - I could only afford headphones first haha) and having...

    Just opened mine and the buttons rattle quite a bit and the volume button occasionally makes a friction noise when turning it... a bit disappointing as it's quite a noticeable rattle when I pick it up...
