  1. Hello, I own an old pair of Sennheiser HD540 Reference Gold. Sadly, a while ago, one of the drivers seems to have given up. I contacted Sennheiser, but they told me they don't have parts available anymore. Because I like them a lot, I'm wondering if either, someone out there has a pair of them lying around, maybe also with only one working driver, so I could acquire a spare part, or if someone knows if it's possible to try and fix them myself. I do have a bit of knowledge with microelectronics, just none about headphone drivers. Best regards
  2. Hello! I want to liven up my headphones a bit and use an external audio card instead of my Asus Z97-P on board audio. I currently use the Sennheiser HD451 headphones mainly for gaming and music. My budget is around 60$-80$ but I can go up to 100$ if it's worth the price. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
  3. Hi, i have sennheiser hd558 headphones and i am looking for a good sub 150$ amp. i was thinking about fiio k5 but its 170$ in my country and I wanted to ask if its worth to buy it over for egzample smsl sap 2 pro (110$ here). Feel free to give some other recomendations. PS. It has to have rca input
  4. Finally got a hold of pair of these and must say they are a worthy upgrade, although, it probably won't be as significant of a difference to those who have not owned or experienced the original HD800. The build quality, I feel is better - partially due to the black, I just think it will be less prone to paint chipping. It almost looked like rubber at first. It fits slightly different than the original. Secondly, it comes with both standard 1/4" cable and 4-pin balanced XLR cable. Now that is something that every company should do. Sonically, for those that felt the HD800s were too shrill or harsh, this should address that complaint. There is also more presence in the low/mids which should please many. There may be a small segment of HD800 enthusiasts that might find these slightly muddy at the highs, but I think it results in a nice balance. What I am saying is that these are not LCDs now; they're still HD800s, they're just a little more forward and balanced. For me, the HD800s/HD800S are the best sub $2K headphone that you can run with a reasonably priced system. They're fairly easy to drive, especially, when you compare them to AKG K1000 or HE-6. Still burning these in so will provide more insight, but so far find them to be worth the extra money if you're looking at buying new or if your HD800s are starting to age. Also, can someone help me figure out why I can't post in the classifieds? My friend dropped out so I have an extra pair of HD800S that I can let go for $1,500 + PP fees/shipping. I know a lot of sites require a certain number of posts, but I am not seeing that requirement.
  5. I wanted to share this with any fellow Canucks on this forum. I friend of mine forwarded a coupon code for 15% off EVERYTHING to a new online Headphones store hifiheadphones.ca. They have an amazing selection and ship for FREE. I wanted to pass this code along here to the CA members if you are looking for anything new, promo code: KHM55OR1MH67 Enjoy:)
  6. Selling a pair of good condition, fully functional, Sennheiser HD 600 Premium Dynamic Headphones. These are one of my favorite headphones that I've owned. The HD600s are one of the better all around headphones, and is great for both audiophiles and music production. The sound signature is very balanced, and works as a great reference headphone. Personally, I prefer them over the HD650 as I find the HD 650s slightly warmer and not as accurate. Specifications: Driver Type: Dynamic. Impedance @ 1kHz: 300 Ohms. Sensitivity: 102 dB SPL/V. Connector Type: 3.5mm (1/8") w/ 1/4" adapter. Cable Length: 10 ft. (3m) Cable Style: Straight Y (detachable) Weight: 9.2 oz. w/o cord. Includes: Sennheiser HD 600 HPs, HD 600 cable, case. Optional are wooden headphone stand ($15), travel case ($10), and/or 3m Cardas HP cable ($115). $225 Firm. Buyer pays shipping.
  7. Hello everyone! I am new to the forums Anyways, I am currently use Bose AE2 Noise canceling headphones and while I do love the quality of these headphones, I have heard that Bose quality is easily dwarfed by Sennheiser. I want to know if this is true and if so what kind of suggestions you guys can give me. I want noise cancellation and over-ear preferably. I just want everything to sound crisp and clear just like my Bose. Looking to speed up to 400$ Thank you
  8. These recently came in. I figured I would give them away as gifts unless they impressed me more than expected. I also have never actually owned any Sennheiser cans as they have always left me wanting when I sampled them at dealers, etc. Source is computer (Roon/Jriver 16/44, High Res, Tidal), iFi IDAC2 , Schiit Saga pre to Schiit Jotunheim HP amp. Massdrop HD6XX (currently $199): I thought this was an HD650 clone but it might be an HD600 clone (perhaps someone knows fer sur). It simply reinforces the previous impressions I have had of Sennheiser at this level. No subass to speak of, somewhat flabby/distorted bass, with an annoyingly large mid/upper bass + lower mid hump that really skews the overall sound. Pleasant enough mids however, voices come through with good accuracy. Highs are not emphasized/hot (as they are in so many products these days) but have a mid-fi graininess to them and not extended into bat territory like most seem to expect these days. Overall, meh. I even purchased a balanced cable hoping to get an improvement (by utilizing the full balanced output of the Jot - these HP's are 300 ohm so phones, DAP's, etc. need not apply) but it did not matter. Massdrop HE4XX (currently $169): Again, there is online debate whether these are clones of HE400i, HE400s, or something in between. Not that it matters, because these sound good! In the under $500 range, IMO only the Oppo PM3's give them any real competition, perhaps the NAD HP50's pulling up the rear. They have a resolution and detail that approaches my Focal Elears. They don't have the Focal's bottom end dynamics, but the bass is real, clear, and just right. If you are used to cans that "pump up the bass" with a hump and tubby emphasis however you might (at first) find them lacking a bit. Mids and highs FR sounds even and right (have not spent much time tweaking EQ on either of these cans however), clear, resolving, detailed, etc. They make well recorded piano sound (mostly) right which is always a tough test. Highs seem to have air without sibilance, etc. Instrument separation is not quite up to the Focal level, but is really good given the price level. I successfully ran them out of my Android Tablet (don't know the internals other than that it has a "wolfson" DAC) and they got to decent, if not concert level SPL. I am going to keep these cans, and at $169 I give them a solid thumbs up. Heck, the price might be too low as most folks in the sub $200 market are looking for portable, closed back HP's.
  9. You get two things with the AMBEO - each worth at least $300 USD (IMHO): A very decent IEM, and a really good binaural recording system (using your Apple i-device) with microphones that capture hi-fi sound. This review has only a few sentences about the binaural recording - the bulk of the review concerns the IEM/earphones. http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/sennheiser-apogee-ambeo-iem-earphone-binaural-recording-rig.4519/
  10. This is a long-existing headphone with a well-deserved reputation for sound quality -vs- size and cost, yet being open-back it is severely restricted in where it can be used. I had this in the closet for years due to the earpads being worn out, and taking it out a few days ago the earpads had actually turned to dust. So I ordered some new earpads and re-acquainted myself with the sound, which really surprised me. A big part of the surprise I figure is probably that the open-back design doesn't create resonance-based colorations the way most small closed portables do.

  11. So I'm equal parts gamer and guitarist and I was blown away a couple years ago when I stopped using typical gaming headsets and got a pair of Sennheiser PC 360s. They were my first set of semi-audiophile headphones and it was like I was able to hear for the first time (even with on-board sound). Now I'm addicted and looking for something even possibly better since those have taken a beating, but I kind of really want something wireless for my current situation (that's probably a no-no for audiophiles, I don't know). I do own a Blue Yeti so it can just be a pair of headphones, maybe later if antlion makes a wireless mod mic I can get one of those too. I really don't want to over-compromise on audio and from what I've looked at the Senny RS 120s seem too low end / uncomfy long term. I'm pretty torn on open vs closed back although for music & comfort I lean towards open, it can be annoying for my girlfriend though. The Senny RS 170s would be perfect at their price point if they were open but they're not and the 180s are pushing it on price and I hear they do leak a ton of sound. Anyone aware of something similar to the 170s that have that Sennheiser clarity? As a guitarist I love me some beefy mid-tones so there is room for improvement probably I don't have experience with other brands yet. I'm not a fan of over-bearing bass (which I often find in cheaper closed backs, like turtle beach headsets and similar garbage) but I do like it to have a tight presence. Something open-back that isn't TOO open back would be preferable. Probably grasping at straws with my budget, may have to save for awhile and just endure the torture (had to send my 360s into square trade and they're reimbursing me so I have nothing right now, feels like I'm wandering thirsty through an audio desert).
