I am enjoying my new Senn's for most genres of music. But I personally find my Sennheiser 600's, Hifiman HE 400i's, Beyerdynamic T90's, Philips X2's and Grado RS1i 's better suited for a broader range of music genres.
Just received an email from UPS that I have a package arriving tomorrow from Sennheiser.
I did order a pair of HD 700's price matched from Best Buy but they are not showing as shipped and are not even due until next Thursday. And I would think the shipping source would be Best Buy.
Could this be a extention cable?
Has anyone else received a notice of shipping from Sennheiser?
T90s are unforgiving unless you run tubes or have an fpga dac or listen to flac or higher. Phillips x2s are bass bombs, Hifiman HE-5LEs are better. I dont think they are even close to shipping cables yet they stated they wont have more cable from the boutique supplier until march so I doubt its that. Maybe Best Buy drop ships.
Source, amps, and dacs play a huge part in the sound equation. The matching of the above to each headphone also is huge. Everyone has preferences on how they like their headphones to sound warm, neutral, detailed etc. That is why we own so many headphones. Each have their strengths and weaknesses.
I run tubes and digital amps depending on which headphones I am using and the genre of music. My choice of which headphones I grab is mostly dependant on the genre of music I am listening to at the time.
I agree the T90's are best with a tube amp but I love their detail especially with jazz. While they are a bit bright with some recordings I find the 6xx's less palatable with more genres of music than the T90's but of course that is personal taste.
Since I don't own HE 5LE'S Ican't comment on them. I will have to give them a listen.
