post #1441 of 38119
I recently recieved Sennhesier HD280Pro's. They are really good but they are too tight around my head. Any advice on how to safely stretch them. I leave them clasped around a 12cm speaker when not using them but they are still too tight. Will this problem be fixed over time?

You're using the best way I know of. How long ago did you get them? HD280s do clamp extremely tight, it might take a month or so for you to notice any real difference pressure. On the plus side though, that clamping helps give you the best noise isolation you'll find in most any non-IEM.

I got them about 3 days ago and have been using them in 1 hour chunks because they are so tight. Good to know that they will gradually loosen. I have noticed that they are very sound tight and they are incredibly LOUD. I have to have the volume on my comp at about 3 notches from the bottom.

How would you recommend I connect them up? My current set up is my Computer where all my music is stored, connected to a cheap Hi-Fi by a single to double Aux cable. Am I better plugging them into the Hi-Fi headphone port or the computer headphone port? or doesnt it matter?

Thanks a lot.

I'd suggest using the amp, unless it is really terrible. Most likely it will have better amplification than the onboard sound.

Your motherboard has an S/PDIF output on the back panel, so if your system will accept digital signals (coaxial or optical) I'd also use that so that you are less susceptible to the noise that typically comes from onboard sound.

Well, Sirrah has certainly placed my attention on the Senn 595's.

Here's an interesting question for everyone - disregarding prices, which is superior for music > Senn HD595's or AKG K271's?

Both seem to have lack-luster bass, but excellent mids/highs. What gets me excited about the 271's is the overall refinement of the sound; as for the 595's I am unsure.

I try to be pretty low-key and let a lot of stuff slide. I don't want to be perceived as somebody who is power-hungry or any of that crap. But, I do insist that any section I work in be as friendly and conducive to good discussion as it possibly can be. If you'd like me to enforce the rules more strictly and be a jerk, lemme know. It sure wouldn't be as much fun though, for any of us.
I did.

The were noob-idiot flaming posts that had no other intention but to piss others off.

Had they been constructive criticism, explaining why Bose are bad, they would have stayed.

I can't wait until my audio setup is complete , I'm just wondering there is a better digital cable than the one that comes with the Auzen or the one that came with my DAC? My suspicion was that different digital connectors didn't really matter since its, well digital... therefore different cables will always send the same digital signal?

Had the 595's running continuous for about 15 hours now ... sounding better and better ... bass is filling out and the highs and mids are just pristine.

I wouldn't say the bass is necessarily 'lack luster' ... just not emphasized. They are reaching some fairly lush low frequencies now ... more than before and are rivaling the e4c's in that regard.

I will say that though they are not bass monsters ... they are hugely EQ'able in the bass region.

Can't wait till I get more hours on them ...

I've been using my HD595's and they are only improving on the bass... it might also be my XtremeMusic influencing it (or a 3rd thing being that I'm used to so bad bass... LOL)

I think they've been used for 60 hours now... since the 25th December. They r0x0rz my b0x0rs.
