    After I acquired Aeolus Blackwood gave up on all headphones. All I need with HD650/600 in the stable.

    There are other more interesting headphones, but I didn't have room to bring them in the car.

    Haven’t had my 6XX setup since I departed for the 3 week vacay that never ended in January. I’ve really been itching for it!

    Nothing to Shh about. I enjoy the HD6XX on my Starlett. I felt better paying that much for an amp than paying more for a headphone which I won't use that much. Same for DACs, they are only good value up to a point.

    I still use hd600 and cheap tube amp because headphones are poor value hahah but miss the days of fancy ass tube amps. Maybe one day. I’m with you on the sennheiser sentiments entirely.

    Sw51 brings them to life in a way reminiscent of good and more expensive tube amps. Haven’t ABed against dna, ec, etc etc maybe better that way. Wanna try an Elekit sometime.

    I still use my HD650 because every other headphone just doesn’t sounds as good no matter the cost

    Yep. Nowadays the 6xx + verum mkii are my go-to not expensive headphones.

    @rhythmdevils: the HD650s have been reformulated since you've been gone - quite a bit different.

    True I haven’t heard a modded pair! Also I was partly in jest because of all the HD650 love here and I prefer orthos. I love the un modded HD650 out of a rig like yours. But I will never have a rig like yours.
