My HD6xx beasts arrived (almost 2 months early). That's some NICE packaging & presentation (i.e., a hinged box?!). I took lots of glamour shots. Aaaaaand plugged them into my Schiit Audio Magni3. Yep, one has to flip the back switch for "high gain" (and notice my "pot" had to be turned more, to get the same volume as my elderly HD515). OH, THE SQUEEZE... IT'S LIKE A BRAND-NEW SCUBA REGULATOR. Fired up the Doobie Brothers, The Four Seasons, and Elton John (1970s rock). Was it worth the wait? Oh, yes. Yes indeed.
Now I can’t wait for mine to arrive! Did you have High expectations for these? From what I’ve read I have high expectations but this is my first pair of hi-fi, I’m matching it with a JDS Lab The Element.
Thanks for the comment, eh. Indeed, my expectations were hopped up by the glowing reviews of the HD650. I’ve also owned 2 Senheisser HD5.... series cans before (and the damn things are still functioning). Your JDS Labs The Element will EASILY drive these cans (nice Device, btw. On par with my Schiit Magni). Check your manual... does it have a gain switch? You might have to adjust it. I think it’s living up to the hype.... especially at this price!
woah -- any reason why yours shipped so early?
Bought it in March. As soon as the drop was announced?
