    USB-C to 3.5mm adapters (DAC) - Let's find the best

    True. Also does anyone has the ugreen adapter from amazon? It is also cheap and also has a dac.... By the way, what do you guys think of bluetooth receivers? I know fiio already hasba bunch of them. Dongles with dacs will always provide better sound quality over hifi bt adapters?

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

    I have thr chance of buying a pair of 1 year old HD660S in mint condition for 180 euros. Do you guys think its worth it? Specially since i already have the hd6xx. To be honest i actually even liked the 600 more than the 6xx because it sounded more forward and agressive but o had to sell them...

    Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread

    I actually do prefer the older design. It was classier. Now is just plain. Is it me or are they now shipping these with cheaper, hd25 like boxes (cardboard boxes with no classy black box inside)?

    Looking forward to it. :) I havê the hd600 and a x2 as well. I was just using the x2 as an example as what we can get with the price diference between the 650 and 660s.

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

    Yes i mainly use my ipad, smartphone and spotify right now and only havê a e12. But still i think the price diference is a bit steel and would like the 660s to drop a bit in price. Nowadays you can almost buy a new Fidélio x2 with the diference between the hd650 and 660. Its quite a diference....

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

    Cool. I want the hd650 só bad. Would you say that besides more bass, the hd650 also hits/punches harder than the hd660s? The 660 is noticeably brighter than the 650? @DavidA Did you felt that the hd660 was was brighter than the 600 when you tested? Graphs seem to show the 660 has having a...

    But this leaves the 3.5 where? Is this pentaconn termination meant to replace it on smartphones and etc?

    Sennheiser HD820

    Excuse my lack of knowledge but this pentaconn termination was already used on the 660s right? This means what? 3.5 is dead? Sorry for asking.... :D

    Sennheiser HD1 Over-Ear Review

    But do they sound exactly the same as the momentum 2.0 (m2)....? Because if they do i doubt the confort is that much improved in order to justify a new purchase from a 2.0 owner and even new buyers can get the 2.0s for as low as 135 euros on amazon (seen this deal a couple of times)..... I...

    Hey david. Remember i was having issues with the hd600 (tinitus effect) like you did? I dont know if tts because i used them so much and i got used to it but they are not bothering me that much anymore.... i think i will keep them. May get the hd660 or 650 later to complement but i am more...

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

    Prices are starting to do down on european amazons. They can already be had for 430 there and i already saw them at 399 one day, Is there any hd25 lover with an hd660s? I would like to know if the 660 sounds similar to the h25 or if it is at least the hd6xx hdadphone that most resembles the...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Thank you very much once again David. The ypsilon is probably not an option for since i am not that good with manual works.... :D To be honest i like to keep my setups as easy and simple as possible so yes i like to avoid using amps. Usually i plug my headphones to an ipad or something like...

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    Merry christhmas! :) Regarding the headband.... That is one of the reasons i head three different x2s. 2 of them had the inside of the headband glued in a really sloppy way. The inside of the headband of my x2s is perfectly glued. As i said i prefered to keep a pair with one of two scratches...

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

    Two things caught my attention.... leaner sounding and not as good as the the hd600 and hd650.... That does it for me.... going to try the hd650 before they go away or start going up in price. Also i think i will keep my hd600 for now.... not that i loooooooooove them but if the hd660s is leaner...

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    Something has to be wrong with your pair. They have a ton of bass. Not the deepest bass but bass is easily noticeable.... they are bassier than the dt770 80ohm pro wich i juat sold, they are as bassy as the sennheiser momentum over ear.... i had 3 pairs pf x2 at the same time and all had plenty...

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

    +2 on the Fidélio x2. I havê the hd600 and yes technically its a great headphones. It beats the x2 in terms of resolution and detail. But i definitly prefer the sound signature of the Fidélio x2, much more fun and musical. Perfect for most of the music i listen to. The hd600 for me are a better...

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    Our only regret may be that we only got one pair.... :D I doubt that a x3 is on the way soo or otherwise phillips would not have made the x2hr revision.... I may be stupid but right now if i had to give up a headphone i would let the hd600 go. The hd600 has more resolution and detail but for...

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    True. There is something special in the overall package. A mix of powerfull, sufficiently detailed and not too agressive sound in a beautifull and confortable headphone that is super easy to drive. I have the hd600 abd it is easilly boticeable the superior resolution and setail but the truth is...
