    HD600 vs HD650, which one is a keeper for life?

    Bah.... :rolling_eyes:

    Sennheiser HD820

    Today I tested the HD820s on a secondary system using the Naim Superuniti streamer + dac section and a handcrafted OTL headphone amp: much, much better. There is little to do, the Qutest + MicroZotl form an excessively clinical and revealing pairing, which does not go well with the Senny. Then...

    Sennheiser HD820

    I think we need something more full-bodied and warm upstream; my chain goes all in the direction of detail and analyticity (or at least, I feel that way) and this certainly does not help.

    Sennheiser HD820

    Compared to the HD800, the 820 is less full-bodied, and this surprised me. Or rather, the HD800 is less aseptic. The 820 is aseptic, anemic. If the goal was to create a precision instrument that probed the sound message down to the smallest gorges, I would say they succeeded, but on a musical...

    Sennheiser HD820

    So, I'm not bringing you any good news, these headphones are puzzling me. First of all, a recommendation: the stock cables DO NOT throw them in the water closet, you would risk clogging it. They should be thrown exclusively in the garbage, possibly differentiated. Having made this important...

    Sennheiser HD820

    Yes, good price compared to the madness of audio cable prices, but what I need (Hybrid, 3.5mt., Furutech jack) costs almost half of what the (used) headphones cost me. I'll buy them anyway, because I know what it means to save on cables.

    Sennheiser HD820

    Interested in these cables too, I'm just afraid they are too bright for the HD820s (just arrived). I think I'll first try the headphones with other aftermarket copper cables I have on the HD800 and then I'll get an idea. Otherwise I would happily ride the Noir HPC mk2

    Sennheiser HD820

    Still waiting for mine; it should arrive today (I can wait, it's not like I'm missing headphones). Upstream he will find: mini-pc with Daphile, Chord Qutest, MicroZotl. With the 800 this combination works very well, of course it's all focused on detail. Risk of "listening fatigue" at the highest...

    Sennheiser HD820

    Just purchased from a user of this forum. Meanwhile, I finish reading the thread then, when they arrive, I will publish my impressions. I am from the original HD800, which I am very satisfied with.

    What headphone would you get based purely on looks?

    On ear, as well as being beautiful, they are also comfortable.

    Comment by 'Uguccione' on listing 'Sony MDR Z1R'

    I wrote to you privately but you didn't answer me. Is the sale suspended? In any case in Europe you do not ship for any reason in the world? In case of two negative answers, I am interested :wink:

    TAOBAO GOLDPLANAR GL850 + GL1000 + GL1200

    Hello. But in terms of sound is there really that much difference? The 850s appeal to me more, they are nicer, they look better built and they are less of a problem with amplification. However, if they sound worse...

    Chord Electronics Qutest DAC - Official Thread

    Hello everybody. I had promised myself not to write anything until I had read the whole discussion, but - with all my best will - I got stuck on page. 120. I am a new owner of this dac, purchased second hand, used for 6 months. I'm not much of a dac expert having only had one many years ago...

    Questyle CMA Twelve

    It's the smooth CMA Twelve, not the gassed one (Master). I did not understand the rest of your speech, I do not speak English and with the automatic translator I was unable to understand the meaning of what you meant. However yesterday - suddenly - the light. I plugged in the HD-800s I just...

    Questyle CMA Twelve

    I've had it for about two months; I have mixed feelings towards this machine because I find it cold and not very musical, yet online I only read frantic praise. I really don't know what to think. By heart the Burson Play (with all Vivid 6 opamps) that I had previously sounded more musical and lush.

    They are headphones that divide, I myself have a love / hate relationship with them. But after buying the first series, I also got the carbon. They are headphones YOU MUST have.

    Congratulations, great review. My favorite artists are the ones you prefer with both headphones, so you didn't help me choose :D

    New: Burson Audio Play Amp/DAC (2W@16Ohm) (op-amp rollers dream)

    Hi everyone. I don't know if it has already been asked because I couldn't read the whole thread; but if you want to use only the dac section of the Burson and connect it to an integrated amplifier, it is better to keep the volume of the Burson at maximum and then adjust the level via the...

    AudioQuest NightHawk Impressions and Discussion Thread

    I am continuing the ratings. We are about 10 hours of break-in, but already these headphones demonstrate impressive dynamics. When you start bass and drums you jump on the chair.   Sweet but bad ;-)   And all this using the headphone output of the amp. When will the amp dedicated what will...
