    This past page may have strayed slightly from audio.....but I'll be damned if I say I don't enjoy some adorable animals.

    I use a set of BGVP Q2s if I'm using a wireless IEM. No ANC or any fancy features, but they sound pretty good and were very affordable. I'm not a fan of ear guides that have wires in them. I've had IEM cables where there's still a guide on it, but it's purely heatshrink so it truly is a guide...

    A tiny extra bass works well for the HD600 IMO. My DAC/amp isn't neutral anyway, has a warm tilt, HD600s sound great on it.

    I can rest easy that I'm not in that picture like you guys. Their posture is nowhere near as bad as mine. Just like a huge chunk of the younger millenial generation :sweat_smile:

    I've returned from lurking! But only very briefly :laughing: It's to say that I've gotten my Drop THX Pandas! I don't have much sound impression right now aside from a quite narrow soundstage IMO, probably because the earcups have absolutely no depth. But they're pretty comfortable; headband...

    WOW: Wish I could link to the original creator's page, but they don't go by their old artist name anymore, nor do they have it posted on their current page so best I could do is the repost.

    https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/tinhifi-t2000-dual-dynamic-hi-fi-wireless-wired Anyone else seen these? Looks like someone else is finally also doing the wired/wireless approach, but in this instance, it's a dual dynamic. Interesting. If the form factor looked a bit more like what I wanted...

    I wouldn't expect them to, but who knows, maybe you'll find a surprise.

    I so far also have no problems yet with a Win10 laptop I grabbed relatively cheap for my parents. Has 8GB RAM with a 120GB SSD. Someday it'll need a clean installation though. I have no idea where some of the storage space has gone, cuz that's just how Windows "works". This one is pending an...

    As promised (and contrary to @Layman1's enablement alerts), here's an AVOIDANCE alert! As a reminder, some many months ago, I joined the Newmine Drop, I was simply curious. Newmine.....whatever model, I assume the various ones aren't going to differ too much in some of the respects I'm going...

    You do you. Heck, sell off the HD600 if you're getting more enjoyment from the HD599 in your setup. Unless you wanna keep it around as a sort of a more widely known benchmark. We end up with too many headphones some of the time, they don't justify being there if you're not going to listen to...

    Everyone's got their own different qualifications for what's considered ridiculously priced. But I also recognize that "worth it" and "ridiculously priced" are also kinda separate as well. I haven't heard the HD820, not really able to say if it's ridiculously priced. But worth it? For me, nah...

    ORA GrapheneQ - The world's first Graphene driver headphone

    Bootleg. It's been quite a long while. But at least it was a lossless rip. I forgot about the headband bending. I should see if I can carefully do that just a bit and see if it helps out.

    I'd say in your scenario, unless you got a chance to actually listen to the HD600 first, don't buy (unless you're rich, in which case, sure why the hell not?). The HD600 and HD650 are on equal footing to me, different sound signature. My brother has the HD650, I have the HD600; I bought mine...

    They're not on my head a fair chunk of the time these days because it's summer where I'm at and I don't like to have headphones on all that often in the summer heat. The HD600s don't get as hot as I've read some other headphones get, but I still prefer no extra heat on my head at all if I can...

    Now that raises another question about the looks of our beloved headphone. We all know that granite color scheme has been a love/hate thing for people who have these. How's everyone's thoughts on this look with the HD660S grilles? By no means do they ruin the aesthetic to me, but I might like...

    Try finding stuff that doesn't measure well then. When one way doesn't work, gotta try the opposite. If most people are fine/happy with how an O2 sounds paired to the HD600 and you think it sounds terrible, then perhaps we gotta find what most people feel sounds terrible with the HD600 and maybe...

    You gotta give us more to work with here. HD600 is listed as a 300ohm impedance headphone (let's just stick to Sennheiser's rating and ignore for now the impedance swing by frequency that I've seen mentioned before). Last I checked, 300 falls inbetween 8-455 and the HD600 is an over-ear...

    Also, if they do consider BT as part of their current or future listening needs, the big difference for the R3 vs R3 Pro for me was that the R3 is BT4.1 while the Pro version is BT5.0. So with a Pro, there are potential power savings for BT5.0 enabled devices. I'd like to have BT5.0 on my DAP if...

    Honestly, I have no idea what you mean by "audiophile tracks" vs. multiple genres. Music is music, if it's mastered/released in good quality, "genre" and "audiophile" are not mutually exclusive. I'd say my library is more pop and EDM these days (I prefer my EDM to have featuring vocals in them)...

    I can't justify nearly 2 months worth of mortgage payments for a DAP. But I'm cheap, we all know this :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    Why is it they still won't add BT5.0 to new devices? Feels like only a handful of DAPs have BT5.0. They're all on 4.2 like this one.

    Did you get a sight to mount on that? We can only hope really. There are way too many people are too stupid to understand all the problems he's caused, too stubborn to pick anyone else, or worse yet, both. Where are those multidimension theorists? Someone get me to one of the better...
