  1. Currently trialling these with a Graham Slee Voyager portable amp. Makes everything bigger and better again.
  2. A 380 flew over head when I had the camera in my hand. Humid day led to contrails from the big jet.
  3. I've been reading this thread with interest. I've recently got a pair of HD58X to use with an iphone just for casual listening at work and when away from home. After having HD600 and HD6XX I find I like the HD58X are much better suited to the output of my iphone 6s and also I prefer the sound even on the home system with a dedicated amp. I've currently loaned a Graham Slee Voyager headphone amp from Wyndham Audio. It's a pretty simple headphone amp only with facility for 3.5 in and 3.5 out. It uses a 9 volt battery and also has facility for 240 volt via a wall wart or USB power. Hardly a small device and not something I'd go jogging with (not that I jog anymore). In terms of performance it really gives the headphone output a decent boost and drives the HD58X well enough to get way too loud if you want. In terms of sound quality it's restricted to the signal it's receiving so I'm interested in how something like a quality headphone amp like the Voyager with an iphone as a source via 3.5 using the iphone dac compares to a dac/amp combo.
  4. I've gone a little left field with my active ATC's in using a Modwright LS100. I have a Benchmark DAC 2 and still enjoy this as a pre and previously used a CA2 (that John L has now) and this was also pretty good. The Modwright gives a little more body to the sound that comes with valves. Plus it's got a killer phono stage. I was concerned about output impedance of what ever pre I was using but ultimately as long as the impeadance output isn't too high it seems to work okay. I used an ME25 along the way too which was also really nice and had the lowest impedance of all the pre amps I've tried. The ATC and Benchmark are a little higher and the MW is around 300 ohms.
  5. Cheap, simple and sound surprisingly good. Preferred these to my 600’s and 6XX (with or without separate amp). The HD58X just do it all pretty well and as a bonus sound great even from an IPhone.
  6. I had a couple of pairs of 10’s but stupidly sold them. Ran them with 250 wpc Primare amp. Lovely speaker and a nicer listen than the scm20’s I had at the same time. $1000 US is probably twice what I’d pay though.
  7. Some of these, and I think it's pot luck if you get one, can do 192, otherwise it's 176.
  8. I use one of these with both a D750 and a D7100 for my young bloke’s rowing. Excellent lens and for the price image quality is excellent at any length and f stop.
  9. I’ve gone from a modded P25 to a Soulines Kubrick with a Jelco 950 arm. The improvement is substantial.
  10. Item: Massdrop HD6XX headphones, one hour use Location: Moonee Ponds Price: $250 Item Condition: as new, one hour use Reason for selling: not being used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought these off the original owner a month ago, they came in the original packaging unused. Bought these and some HD600’s to see what the difference was. As it turns out I don’t listen to either so both these and the 600’s are for sale. I’ve used these for about and hour and they’ve otherwise lived in the box. These are the same as the HD650 but different colour and come with a shorter cable with a 3.5 mm plug. Standard 650 cables with the larger plug and longer cable are available from Sennheiser for $20. Can post. HD650 are still around $450 so the HD6XX are somewhat of a bargain.

  11. Good buying here, refoamed mids and spare tweeters, what’s not to like here?
  12. They’ll sound the same. Pricing on the pro won’t be half, probably much the same as the domestic version.
