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...
So tried buying the 58x yesterday and said it cant be shipped to Australia. I then tried to buy the 6xx cause if I cant get the 58x I might as well get the 6xx but I cant get that delivered to Australia too! man is there a way I can get these headphones because I really want to get the 6xx. I've heard from so many reviews and people about how good they are but they don't ship to AUS.
Is there a DAC with bluetooth + digitial input and balanced outputs for speakers + an integrated crossover for sub w/another output? Or is it pretty much always assumed that if you use balanced outputs you'll have a sub with pass-through and its own crossover? (Obviously talking powered speakers & sub.)
Which currently available drop headphones has the most bass?
I currently own the Sennheiser 6xx and a Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro. The 6xx is definitely lacking in bass, but the 770 isn't too bad. I still want more though.
Can anyone recommend a pair of basshead headphones? and is it possible to get what I want for under $300, or am I gonna have to shell out closer to a grand? I hear planar magnetics are supposed to be pretty amazing, but I've yet to try any. Drop seems to have several planar headphones currently, and I'm wondering if any of these might be what I'm looking for?
If you don't think I'll find what I'm looking for on this site, I'm open to suggestions for whatever.
