    ad1000, hd650?

    hey, while a quick search for the ad1000 turns up a few impressions, i can't seem to find any that compare it to the hd650 (or the hd600.) i'm quite curious how they compare against each other, since they're priced at a similar level, and unfortunately, i don't have the opportunity to...

    Sony SA5000 response plots

    very nice plots, gerg. thanks the upper bass/lower midrange dip on the sa5000's plot is interesting - i remember seeing a similar dip in that range on j-curve's a500-a1000 plots. an intentional equalisation by both manufacturers, maybe? [edit: or perhaps because j-curve's measurements were...

    SONY Shootout Thread : MDR-SA1000 vs SA3000 vs SA5000

    great review, gs. if you have time, how would you compare the A900's midrange with that of the SA1000? does it have a similar kind of "hollowness" that A900 has? thanks!

    Has any one heard the ATH- AD2000?

    Quote: Originally Posted by gurus Sound stage is more precise and natural in its presentation. Wider with more depth in the AD1000. SA5000 sounds like you are locked in a telephone booth or imprisoned in a small chamber. Very closed in and small. Totally unnatural. I am surprised nobody...

    audio-technica ad7?

    hi does anyone have any experience with the ath-ad7? i've searched around a little and there've been a couple of recommendations for these (although it seems that the higher ath-adx range doesn't have a very good reputation here; not sure about the new adx00 series though.) but otherwise...

    My thoughts on the new sennheiser 595

    cool, thanks for the listening impressions Quote: The HD-595 is a very open and spacious sounding headphone. would you say it's more spacious-sounding than the HD580?

    were should i look for good compared frq. graph ?

    j-curve took a lot of measurements in his thread here. (fyi, those graphs are all relative to the hd580 as the equalized-flat reference.) hope that helps~

    bass output rivaling DT 770?!

    Quote: I am suspicious that Sen took out some of the damping, but I think it was electrical rather than mechanical. Still looking into that one. hmm that's pretty interesting. does anyone know if headroom has taken measurements of the hd650's impedance curve? i wonder how much it...

    First contact with the HD 650...

    hehe how lucky, jazz how would you say the midrange of the hd650 compares to the 600? some people seem to say that the hd600 has a small bump in the lower midrange and a slightly recessed upper midrange, so i was wondering if the hd650 exhibits these characteristics as well... thanks

    HD650s - Where's the hype?

    Quote: ...(iii) more compact sound ... i hope that doesn't mean 'smaller soundstage'

    Audio Technica A900 help

    well they can get a little hot if the ambient temperature isn't cool (in the high 20-degrees C), but otherwise they're pretty comfy for long listening periods since there's space between the driver and your ear.

    CD3000 vs HD600 question

    hmm i'm also curious as to how the CD3000 fares against the HD600 in terms of soundstage depth ... if it's not too much trouble to compare, does it become more easily congested on complex musical passages? does its closed (or "semi-closed") design leave any sonic traces/resonances? thanks &...

    Received the Senn. 590s

    if it's not too much trouble, how would you compare them soundstage-wise (depth, width) to the A1000 that you used to have? and how similar is the frequency balance on both 'phones? thanks [edit: oh, and congrats on your new 'phones ]

    Audio Technica suggestions?

    Quote: Originally posted by PodMan thanks for the very helpful response. so how does either the A900 or A500 compare to the HD580 to you? I am a former HD580 owner. If either of them can resemble the HD580 sound (or be a little more forward and be easier to drive), I would be very happy...

    Audio Technica suggestions?

    Audio Technica suggestions?

    hmm i don't think the A500 comes with a pouch (at least not the one i got from audiocubes.) anyway, i had the A500 for a few months and upgraded to the A900. the A500 is kinda similar to the A900 -- they definitely share a "family resemblance." the A500's soundstage is about as wide as the...

    Senn HD600 for $160... *sigh*

    don't despair silver, there's always a few 2nd-hand hd580s to be found online (a lot cheaper too) like here (not sure if it's sold yet.)

    Who repairs sony cd3000's ?

    just a sanity check, but did you try plugging them into difference sources (perhaps with different output impedances)? anything... even something like a tv or pcdp.. hope nothing's seriously wrong with them though
