I am new here and noticed Sennheiser is producing HD6xx for this group,... in fact I have ordered a pair. I would love to be able to buy the original Sennheiser PX 100 compact headphones. They sounded amazing and the replacement products have not been as good. How does this work?
Lets make this happen, a baby Orpheus for the modern audiophile world. We have the Sennheiser HE 1, but no other electrostatic from the company for the audiophile that's looking for the Sennheiser sound at an (way more) accesible price. The system should be based on the HE 60 project, an electrostatic with price-consciousness in mind, as the then HE 90 (Orpheus) was too expensive just as the HE 1 is actually. And just like the 600 series it should have a good build quality but using the famous plastic that Sennheiser is known for, which we still have from the 580 Precision and it is still rock solid. And most importantly, great sound quality paired with an energizer that can deliver (more than) enough power to drive the electrostatic driver. I would suggest the name to be HE 0X (Zero X), as it's a baby HE 1 and an 'X' has always trailed on Massdrop x Sennheiser collaborations. I had previously seen that Will from Collaborations said they had already pitched Sennheiser for the HE X0,...
I've recently went through the process of removing the attached cables on my Sony MDR-V6/7506 headphones and replacing them with female audio jack. Once I got the hang of what to solder, the process was fairly straight forward. I needed to use a Dremel tool to widen the hole for the audio jack. I got some minor scratching around the area but I think it came out looking pretty good.
In addition to being able to use any audio aux cable to attach the headphones, I found that a Bluetooth transceiver works just as well. Once synced up to my phone, the transceiver effectively makes the headphones wireless. The transceiver even has a microphone so I can answer calls on my phone.
I was wondering if anyone else out there has worked on a similar type project. I'd be curious to know what headphones you detached the cable from and how much effort was involved. I'd be interested in hearing both successes and failures alike.
The next pair of headphones I plan on attempting this...
Headphone + AMP/DAC - Can someone give me a recommendation?
Hi everyone, this is my first post here. I would like some help on finding a pair of headphones and AMP/DAC. I would like open-back headphones (i already own a pair of ATH M50x working just phine but like 8-10 years old and i dont have any DAC or AMP) and i have 500 € budget approximately.
I looked many reviews and at the moments my preferences are Hifiman Sundara, Sigva Phoenix, Sennheiser HD6xx or HD660s (wich are at the moment at 330 € on amazon) and maybe AKG k712 pro. I also have in my mind the Topping DX3 Pro and Xduoo XD-5 Plus. Those are very differente, xduoo is portable, and i dont really care about if its portable or not.
What would you recommend to me? Are this good options?
Thank your very much for the help.
I have been hearing from the world, the web and elsewhere? that people own headphones and set ups that reveal everything. Stuff they have never heard in recordings they have been listening to for years. I had been searching for this for what seems like many years. I have about 20 pair mid to high end headphones, about 15 pair IEM and High Res DACs and AMPs in all their glory. I love how easy it is to listen to all that gear without a huge price tag. I consider each device to have its own sound signature. Some provide more depth and detail, some provide a very flat, unfiltered sound. All the while this is attainable yet can be configured differently depending on the tastes of the listener.
Now, with that out of the way... I love my headphones, DACs and AMPs. I love high res music in many genres except hardcore Rap and Country. Occasionally listen to Classical. That leaves me with all the rest. Mainly Rock including Classic, Pop, EDM and some Hip Hop too. Those are my main genres...
