Kinda quiet of late so I thought I'd make an innocent demand.



On the first post/member list, the following:

Quote:
s1rrah (Shure E4, SR80, SR225, SE530, RS1)
... should be changed to:

Senn HD580, Shure SE530, Grado RS1

...

That's my current setup yo!

...

Thanks in advance!

Tell me how you like 'em SpardaHK, mine sound amazing right about now. Bass on these is ideal for my hardstyle//minimal music and the soundstage is great for the few games I play. Has a nice warm feeling and it fits comfortably.

Well, I have just this evening giving my new DT770's their first full & uninterrupted listen.

Following advice on various forums, I burned them in first with 72 hours of medium volume pink noise. Did this make a difference? Not to my ears, but I'm no expert and the theory makes sense and it can't do any harm so why not?

I worked through a broad range of musical styles including Doves, Etienne De Crecy, King Tubby, India Arie, John Martyn, Timo Maas Chemical Brothers & Athlete.

Sound is big, full and immersive, with a wam musicality that makes them very easy to listen to. Bass extension is considerable. Higher volumes and their closed design can even have them verging on excessive in this department. Eq on my amp helped as I was able to roll off the lower freq's to compensate on occasion though backing off on the volume had the same effect.

Comfort is excellent with nice soft pads and good headband padding. I wore them for hours with glasses on and had no issues whatsoever - a marked difference over my old Sony's. Build quality is impressively burly in keeping with their Teutonic heritage.

This is my first pair of good (ish) 'phones and overall I am not disappointed. I spent a fair amount of time on head-fi researching options for the type of music I listen to and these were consistently recommended as being well priced for bass fans.

The only drawback is that, as I had read, good headphones expose bad recordings. Lower bitrate mp3's now sound flat & lifeless and even music I listened to direct from cd was revealed as being of decidedly ropey quality with significant background hiss - several of John Martyn's Island recordings were plagued with background noise that I had been blissfully unaware of prior to today...bah!

Next step is to install a media player with ASIO support to see if this makes as a big a difference as people claim...

The 336i is a nice amp. Lower end of their tube range, but still a great little device.


I'm caught between a Little Dot MKII and a MKIII. The MKII is cheaper and smaller, but then again, the MKIII is only $40 or so more (~$200 vs ~$240) and sound quality is what really matters, right?


Grrrrr. Sometimes I hate how much I love this stuff.
