Oh, what a surprise....George has once again decided to bring up his headphone amp that he sells...I sent a PM to two people a few days ago when this thread started getting going to alert them to the fact that this is the only reason George graces us with his presence...he has a headphone amp that he peddles and he attempts to take advantage of an established forum here at Audio Circle for free word of mouth advertising. I told these two people it would only be a matter of time until he brought it up in this thread, just like he does in EVERY other headphone related thread, and here you have evidence of it once again. In my opinion it's disrespectful to those of us who post here simply because of a love of headphones and with no profit motive or agenda. George has proved time and time and time again that he has an ulterior motive for being here, and I wish that others would support me in requesting his posting privileges be suspended with regard to the Headphone Circle.
PM sent to George. I hate to suspend any member but this is getting a little wacky. Now, back to my Schiit Lyr and Beyer DT 990's. 600 Ohm model of course.
Oh, I still have the T1's. The 990's give me just a better "soundstage."
What?? We agree about something?? One of us must not be feeling well
I wonder if brawls ever erupt at the "Head-Fi" meets?
I got a pair of Sennheiser HD 800.And when listening to really well recorded music with a deep sound stage,like this one; Carmen Gomes,Thousand Shades of Blue,track 1,I'm on Firehttp://www.soundliaison.com/products-from-our-studio-showcase-series/1-carmen-gomes-inc (it even sounds great just from the playback (mp3?) from the website,the 24/96 is mind blowing,but then you have to buy).any way I prefer my HD 800 for this recording above my speakers,more 3 dimensional in my opinion.But to be fair I still have to improve my room acoustics.
I'm using the Grado PS2000e's with Cardas Clear balanced 4 pin powered by the Bryston BHA-1 and I can report an extra cranial 3D soundstage that is so good I have used the setup to better dial my Focal Sopra 2's into the room. Of course the listening experience is different. Not better or worse, just different. I am a soundstage and imaging junky (not good or bad, just my cup of tea) and both the Grado's and the Sopras are deeply satisfying to me each in their own way. When this question was posed at the beginning of the thread I thought wow, how are we going to control the variables (phones, amps, cables, recordings) because if we don't a fight's going to break out
My cheap HE400 w/the supplied mini plug also display a extra cranial sound stage, the prob its just 1 metre wide, this dont substitute an loudspeaker ((
(saw it referred to as 'headstaging' by one Head-fi person)This is a wrong denomination, unless it refers to the small soundstage of an IEM.
HP manufacturers stm ignore the size of the sound stage their products offer and make no effort to increase it other than the angled pads.
I suppose the term refers to the fact that headphones don't exactly have 'soundstage'
I'm sure they're doing what they can and are open to suggestions. Have any?
