    Darkvoice 336SE for HD600 or Atom Amp + HD58x?

    I use my HD600s for sound engineering, and I want something a bit more enjoyable to listen to.

    Darkvoice 336SE alternatives and a "medical" question

    My DV 336SE is strange. After it gets hot (20-30 mins) it causes my lungs and throat to get sore. I know it sounds funny, but it isn't as it must be evaporating something that irritates my breathing (based on my research I guess it might be epoxy resin). I have a question - did anybody else...

    Sonarworks and HD600: 2k boost legitimate?

    Hi all, I recently switched to Sennheiser HD600 with Sonarworks. I use the average profile for HD600. On the correcting curve there's a 2k boost (obviously on the curve before correction there's a 2k dip). The 2k boost is VERY dramatic on rock music with "guitar walls", meaning overdrive...
