    Hifiman Edition X

    Hey Guys, Picked up a set of these, but noticed I'm getting some channel issues. I got them 'used - open box' from Amazon, but I'm starting to think they may have been dropped. Going to drop a couple pics below this in hopes it will make more sense. Long story short, cable inserts all the...

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    Appreciate all the input guys! It's been a while since I've been any type of active on here, so it's a nice welcome back :). Also, prepare for some noob questions considering I'm completely new to tube amps :D. Cool, I'll check Mullard and Amperex out. I'm familiar with the names for sure...

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    So anyone here running the HD700 out of a LD MKIII? I've recently acquired the combo and looking for potential tube recommendations. I've got fairly minimal hours on both the amp and the headphones, but I have to say I find the LD a better match for these than the Asgard 2 that I also have...

    Not sure if I could make another so soon, but I'm always open.  I thoroughly enjoyed myself in this last one and would definitely not mind another.

      I found out the same thing.  I was pleasantly surprised how well it handled anything electronic.  It's why I sold my Beyers in the end.

    I'd have to take a look in my bag, but I thought they did. I might be thinking of my old SF3s. However, UE did make some that are very similar to how your single flange ones are.

    Did you not like the bi-flanges that come with the TF10?

      Just to add to what's already been said; the HD650 extends deeper and has more impact than even the HD600.  I've heard the HD598, but not the 558.  The 598 has nothing on the bass of the HD650.

      Matt's selling that BottleHead Crack.  I bet that'd be perfect for you :).  It looks beautiful, too.

    NEW - Schiit Asgard 2

    Yeah.  I might as well chalk it up to some of the music I listen to as well.  We all know some older rock, and even newer 'hardcore' music is fairly under-produced.  And I'm not taking a shot at you.  I hope I wasn't coming off that way .

      This; or try and get the seller down to $400 :).  Since you can get them for that price new and shipped from RDA.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Oh don't get me wrong, I liked them a lot, but I guess I just slightly prefer the HD650. We can probably blame system bias too :p. And awesome! My wife had told me a woman came over and complimented the variety of music, and I caught a glimpse of the Playlist she had playing in Vox (some of my...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Actually not at all .   At the meet I got to listen to the HD800 and I was very underwhelmed.  It wasn't my type of thing.  For the sound signature it was going for, I actually preferred both the Q701 and K812.   I got to listen to the LCD-2 as well and while I liked it, I liked the LCD-3...

    NEW - Schiit Asgard 2

    I think it heavily relies on DAC and source.  With the Modi it's a bit bright.  Bright headphones don't help it any either.  Grados are definitely a no-no IMO.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Sure, that's not a problem at all! At the recent meet I got a chance to try a few tube amps ranging from the WA7 Fireflies amp to a DIY ($500+) 'shoebox' amp. I didn't get to make any hard comparisons between a lot of them, but the two mentioned definitely have that signature 'tube' (I.e...

    NEW - Schiit Asgard 2

    I'd have to agree there. My 770s do wonderful with the Asgard 2,but trying the vanilla 770s with a Magni and Modi combo was not pleasant. However, my now sold Grados didn't pair up well as all IMO.

    Indeed; that's what Tristan was telling. Make me miss the HD600 a bit ;).

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

      A lot of people give an explanation that other headphones around the time (Beyer, AKG, Grado, etc.) were all 'brighter' types of sound signatures, so the HD650 kind of brought a new and different sound to the table.  Even against the HD600, it's quite a large difference.  I mean, they both...

    I was honestly surprised by how many people came and took a listen to my setup.  It was a joy to give quite a few people a good taste of the Asgard 2 and HD650 :).   Special thanks to Tjj for allowing me to use the Cambridge Audio DACMagic 100 and JWahl for allowing me to use the Modi for some...

    NEW - Schiit Asgard 2

      I believe the Asgard 2 and HD650 are very good at balancing each other out.  The Asgard 2 is a bit of a bright amp (less than the Magni, but you catch my drift).  I personally feel it matches well with the darker/more dense sound of the HD650.  However, I find the Asgard 2 paired with...

    First of all, thanks to everyone that made this possible. My wife and I highly enjoyed our first Head-fi meet. She enjoyed enough to ask if there would be one next year (this does not happen often, btw ;-)). Also, another big thanks to everyone. Everyone was extremely kind, welcoming and...
