I'm not asking if Sennheiser makes closed-back headphones. It's nice to have them come from a Massdrop collaboration, and those are clearly not the same headphones.
Besides padding and design, the sound signatures are likely very different. The HD598s have a frequency response of 10 Hz - 20kHz, while the HD6XX have a frequency response of 10 Hz - 41 kHz. That's a pretty significant impact, and you're likely to get much better sound stage on the HD6XX.

Just a suggestion, as I don't think Senn is moving further in the closed direction serving the audiophile market; the other choice is the HD 380 PRO, monitors will always be there; sharing the technology. Their marketing folks simply must look forward into the future, as they have shown us again with the HE 1, the future is open. I only have closed cans for travel, Sony active NC for planes and Phonon passive NC -closed for hotels; would not buy another closed set for home listening.

KEF LS50 Drop....Anyone else drooling at this prospect?
For those of you who may not know, the KEF LS50's are one of the best rated desktop/monitor speaker around. They have received constant praise from sites like "what hi-fi", cnet, sound and vision, stereophile magazine, etc etc. almost always achieving a near perfect score and receiving multiple 2016 product of the year awards.They are normally $1500 for a pair, and come in some pretty awesome color schemes like black and gold, titanium grey and blue, white and blue, and red and gray I believe. I've been saving up for these for a few weeks now, and I would love to see them offered in a drop! Below are some links about these gorgeous works of art. http://www.stereophile.com/content/kef-ls50-anniversary-model-loudspeaker http://www.whathifi.com/kef/ls50/review http://www.digitalaudioreview.net/2016/12/kef-ls50-wireless-review-dars-product-of-the-year-2016/ https://www.avforums.com/review/kef-ls50-speaker-review.11965 [image] [image] [image] [image]

Anyone Interested in Massdrop IEM Stands?
Hey everyone! Thought I'd throw this idea out there. My name is Mik, and I've been selling the Aural Life IEM Headphone Stands via Amazon and on the Aural Life website. The purpose of the IEM stand is to display your collection of IEMs. I've been on Massdrop for quite some time now, and it just occurred to me that it might be cool for our community to have our very own Massdrop IEM stands. I've had a few audio companies ask me to produce IEM stands with their own logos on them. I can ask my manufacturer to produce a limited run of IEM stands based on the amount of interest out there. Of course, I'd have to talk to the Massdrop team themselves and work out all the important details and legal stuff. What do you guys think? [image]

Massdrop Version of Sennheiser HD 25?
Has anyone at Massdrop thought about creating a collaborative version of the Sennheiser HD 25? Team members could confect a dark blue plastic model, or finesse and fine-tune the HD 25 Aluminum (not the Amperior; I'm talking about the proper HD 25 with fully detachable cable, etc.). Comparison review king |Joker| of TheHeadphoneList gives the HD 25-1 his highest rating (http://theheadphonelist.com/headphone-review/sennheiser-hd25-1-ii/). I once spoke with him about his background as an audio engineer because I'm an old-time studio musician who has found that the HD 25-1 might be the only DJ headphone that can be used in studios for basics and overdubs. |Joker| seemed to agree. I'm always recommending versions of the HD 25 to friends. It would be nice if I could bring those friends to Massdrop on the strength of a special edition with a reasonable price.

Denom or Beyerdinamic?
I'm looking for a pair of fun (not flat sounding) closed back headphones between these prices: 100-150€/108-165$ aprox. On the one hand, I've got this two options in mind: Denom AH-D1200 and Beyerdinamic 770 pro. Could someone tell me his/her impresiones about them? Because I cannot test them, and I'm not sure which one is better and if there are better options in that interval. On the other hand, 80ohms beyer option could be worth? I mean, I've got a Focusrite Scarlet Solo 2gn, is that enough to move it? Thanks for the info and comments! 😄

Varmilo Problems on Mac
I bought the Varmilo Dragon Phoenix VA104M Mechanical Keyboard and initially it worked great. I'm on a Mac, so I got some mac modifier keys at maxkeyboard.com. The only problem with them is that the LED backlights shine brighter through these than the other keys. I may try to attenuate the keys somehow. Any suggestions? Unfortunately I've run into a bigger problem: I used the traditional method of remapping the modifier keys to the mac layout (through the Keyboard panel in the system preferences) and all was fine for about 2 weeks. Then all of a sudden certain keys seemed to remap themselves. I reset the Keyboard mapping in the system preferences and this is what I'm left with (using Windows ID's): Left Control is mapped to Caps Lock Right Control is fine Caps Lock is mapped to both Control keys Both ALT keys are mapped to nothing, unresponsive Both "Window" keys are mapped to the ALT keys I installed Karabiner - Elements and was able to remap the Caps Lock and Control keys to...
