    Sennheiser HD660s - divisive headphones

    At least my HD 660S sound very dark and lacks clarity and detail. It sound like the sound comes under the ground or there's billows between the driver and ears. Somehow the 6K area is too pronounced relative to surrounding. It makes the treble sound opposite of smooth but not more detailed. In...

    Topping L30 Headphone Amplifier Review

    Just received my replacement unit today. That was a long wait but it's finally back. I must say that Topping's apology letter probably doesn't help (in fact, it does the opposite...). I'd highly appreciate it if manuals, website and other documents would be translated properly (by actual...

    how much headphone amp is enough???

    If you have a microphone enabled & connected it might be a good idea to do this: Sometimes that can mess up the volume depending on the use case.

    Looks like Drop might be 'dropping' a HD800

    Looks good up to 1kHz and the rest doesn't make sense.

    Superlux HD668B Review (headphone)

    I do have HD668B... IMO it's a physical and aural torture device. Hurts to use it in so many ways.

    Topping L30 Headphone Amplifier Review

    Good thing I bought mine from Finland so replacement should be straight forward and the shop is on top of the situation.

    Sennheiser HD650 Review (Headphone)

    I can only use my "HD 600" if I take my HD 58X apart since I happen to have just two HD 600 driver capsules. They do have other differences other than frequency response, fore example, HD 600 plays a bit louder. Out of all HD 600 series headphones (including HD 58X) HD 660S is the most different.

    Sennheiser HD650 Review (Headphone)

    Personally I haven't found anything that I would like more than my HD 6XX. HD 600 is close but sounds a bit artificial and ear straining. HD 6XX just sounds like I expect things to sound and "the feel" is right - how it creates the sound stage, depth, position and all. It "sounds full" and can...

    Topping L30 Headphone Amplifier Review

    Really? To me L30 11.00 (~40%), E30 -12dB and L30 on unity gain is pretty much the limit. Anything higher and it wouldn't be comfortable and I'd start to worry about my hearing.

    What headphone(s) do you own ?

    Been swapping between HD 6XX, "HD 600" and HD 660 S again and I can't help it - both HD 6XX and HD 600 just sound better to my ear. Imaging, staging, frequency response, texture, clarity, bottom rumble and sharpness. HD 660 S sound like there's a blanket between the driver and the ear - it...

    Topping L30 Headphone Amplifier Review

    And here I'd be perfectly happy with -18dB gain... Currently have E30 at -17,5dB and O2 around 10-11 o'clock (unity gain).

    Also use shitloads of duct tape. It solves everything.

    Topping E30 DAC Review

    Direct mode doesn't have anything to do with recording. Recording is handled by the SoundCore3D ADC - there's no other ADC chip. Line in/mic goes straight to ADC like always (according to Creative it has 101dB SNR). It's not analogue in to amp plug. You can easily verify that with simple...

    Topping E30 DAC Review

    The quality that way would be only as good as the ADC in SoundCore3D chip which is low and poor.
