    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    I made a cable out of Mogami 2534 and some decent connectors using kester lead solder, shorter and sound more nuetral than stock , stock sound darker with recessed mid to me. Mogami 2534 and 2893 really improved the overall neutrality of all 3 sennheiser I tried (Hd600, hd700, ie8)

    HD600 upgrade cable with XLR or 6.3mm plug?

    It really depend on what equipment (Amp and/or DAC-Amp). the other suggeswtion is to get several cable each with different plug consider the cable on HD650 is detachable, I have HD600 and I made cables of my own using both 6.3mm and 3.5mm. I didn't make XLR because I don't have equipment using...

    it is the TWcu 24 AWG from Cryo-Parts. it is rather flexible but slightly hard to wirk with because the insulation tube shrink a lot when heat apply to the wire.

    I first measure 4 equal length wire, solder then onto the 3.5mm plug. then I thread the wires through the sleeve. heat shrink was used to fix the sleeve to the wire before puting the cover of the plug onto it. another layer of heat shrink to the external of the plug. on the other end, the four...

    Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread

    I bought some SCSCag and TWcu from Cryo-Parts, made the silver last night, nto sure if I like it, it sound  soo bright not sure if burn-in will help. it may suit the slightly darker sound HD650. IMO, it seem like Alo SXC has better ballance for now, I will post picture of the cable later, and...

    Sansa Clip+ Impressions

    Clip+'s FR match well with UM3X to compensate its weaker high. flat response often sound like the bass is reduced which is a way to compensate bass heavy down stream

    Audeo PFE Replacement Buds

    agree, just get the replacement or use Shure Olive if you want foam

    Can anyone recommend a strong-cable IEM?

    Just purchased the DAC-Extasy - Dumb move?

    I have both uDAC and Extasy, nothing more expansive. Extasy sound more neutral than uDAC which is really warm. however Extasy does not have any form of volume control so it is outrageously loud on its headphone out. even SRH840 will make you deaf. I do not have amp so I use a radioshack volume...

    Would you rather lose your favorite headphone and amp or your favorite album?

    I choose to lost headphone+amp over album. there is always newer and better headphone or I can buy them again but some of my album can never be found again.

    Upgrading from PFEs?

    I will say W2, UM3x is pretty dark compared with PFE with quite strong bass quantity. W2 is kind of in between. if your source is on the bright side with less bass quantity, UM3X is perfect. but if the source has strong bass, W2 will be a better suit.
