      Welp, HD 600 scale is no joke... full night of critical listening and I remain even more deeply impressed!

        Back when I got the HD 800 I was originally going to get the HD 600. Kinda glad I waited to be honest, I've heard a lot of other Tube & Headphone designs and feel I can appreciate the 600 more so now!

      Ok, I will say the HD 650 Cable is built a bit more substantially than the stock 600 cable, an the all black aesthetic is a plus imo

        Yes actually I'm quite enjoying "as the romans do" HD 600 is quite a bit better than I remember. Ever curious to see how it and the crack turn out, oh and what difference the HD 650 cable will make if any

      Figured if I'm getting a HD 600 might as well try Crack with Speedball too. Good friend hooked me up, even included a box Tube replacements!

        I don't know where every one stands but I'm letting it run with white noise atm, HD 650 cable should be here monday and I'll give it a listen then.

        I don't buy into "burn in" but some do so I figured I'd better cover my bases before I share my thoughts. Still thanks for the comment!

      Finally ordered an HD 600 for myself, what is the most basic/straightforward accepted mod to start with

        I guess the stock cable must really be that bad... Senn site has it. Might as well order it now

        The stock cable is okay. The HD650 is better quality overall from what I have been told. Sennheiser makes decent cables. I have had dozens of headphones. Never issues with Sennheiser cables.

        I'd keep an eye out for pad wear. Stock pads apparently are the best.

        Multiple exclamation points are a sure sign of insanity ;)

        Unless it's on the same amp and most important headphone as yours tube impressions are pretty useless. If you include the amp at least you might get better answers but there aren't a lot of rollers here.

        Excellent point, it's a custom piece so I'll just have to experiment,

        Builder does have the 5814a he's happy to include though!

        Prepare to make your wallet suffer. Once you get seduced by tubetastic sound you want more. Tubes and booze are the best audio tweaks ever.

      Wondering why the F*** a lot modern music is mastered so loudly... never noticed on headphones but on my speakers it's quite obvious

        I'd say it's odd that this is more noticeable on speakers than headphones, but I have effectively zero experience with the former anyway.

        Pick a reason: Things sound better when played louder, consumer gear (e.g. phones, laptops) can barely drive headphones to decent levels.

        I notice it on both but find it more objectionable on headphones.

        @Lyer25, "Things sound better when played louder"

        That's only half the rule. This is the whole thing:

        Louder, /if not already too loud,/ always sounds better.

      Making sense of all this measurement stuff is kinda fun, enjoyed reading the why behind a few various "compensation" curves
