Well I can't say personally anything about any IEM or buds, sensitive ear and all that so no on-ear headphones or earbuds for longer than 10-20min. I'd imagine in a headphone thread people would have more experience with the ones that sit on your head rather than in-ear.

 

 

Nothing wrong with the se846's from what i've briefly read. If anything they've held up quite well to the competition. Decent bass and great soundstage for in-ears are a +1 in my book, even if i'll never be able to enjoy them as much as others.

 

 

Beyer's are a bit notorious for their brightness, not sure if that applies with ALL of their products though.

Just returned from a few days across the ditch in Brisbane, got to use my new Sony WH1000XM3 for the first time on a Flight.  Excellent noise cancelling whilst watching a movie or listening to music. Even when not actually listening to anything.  Great fit and battery life, comfortable to wear.  Only concern was that they were a little warm to wear after a while.

The Beyerdynamic Byron iem are not bright, they are smooth and detailed. I imagine them to be the best price to performance in all of audio. Dont believe me pick up a $50 pair and return if not satisfied. Break them in for a night or two. That's where I'm at right now. I dont want to hear better because I'm too satisfied at this point.

Is there anything in particular you're after in them? They'll be likely expensive to ship down here.

XM3 is very bass heavy.

 

 

 

 

I had to turn the default "clearbass" setting in the app down to -5. To my ears the bass is now where it should be and they are sounding pretty good!

Sdh1084: Batman, you are hilarious and that is exactly the kind of answer I was looking for.

Networkr, I appreciate the push back and what you say makes sense too.

Is it safe to say: hd650 insightfully open best in quiet and xm3 more compressed but very fun and ultimately better for noisy environments?

What I'm really starting to think about: Shure se846!

 

I had a relationship with a very sophisticated ex girlfriend. She was above my league, could do no wrong. She was a superstar with perfect figure the world would die for, yet she chose me. She really holds you tight. Every moment you spend with her is pure ecstasy you cannot forget however hard you tried. You want to spend every moment with her. But I let her go. Behold the Audeze LCD 2. The best ever headphones. Check out addicted2audio.com.au

Funny.
I’m thinking of trading up from the HD6xx(650) to an Audeze 2, 3 or X.
You linked to an Aussie site that does not ship to NZ, is there a recommended place in NZ to buy thes?

Does anyone have any experience with them, especially compared to the HD650?
My music tastes are Rock, EDM, Dub/Chill step i.e. I like bass.

Audeze is not bass heavy, no matter what the review sites say does not make them bass heavy.

Is just the lush midrange is orgasmic. The higher the number the less bass the more treble.

Pretty sure they used to ship to NZ. Just ask them. I spend hours there when I visit Melbourne.

Audeze LCD 2.2 Fazor vs HD6xx

Sound stage. Audeze smaller, slightly.
Bass. Audeze has more, slightly. Bass extension similar.
Midrange. Audeze is the god. So smooth lush and full bodied. HD6xx is lighter and faker.
Treble. Audeze has more.
Comfort. Audeze is like wearing a concrete block with thorns in your ear when used for more than 30 mins. HD6xx very comfortable and light.

One thing the HD6xx has is detail and soundstage. I can hear things that I can't hear elsewhere. You can tell exactly where the people are standing, if their shirts rubbed, you could probably tell if they scratched their nose.

The other thing I should mention is bass extension. I am a crazy bass head so I used software to cleanly crank up the bass and it can then produce massive bass. The audeze can produce earth shattering bass that way down to about 20+ Hz to mess up your brains. Won't do less cos I have a 14Hz sub that I found a Brooke frazer track that has bass at around the point my sub stopped making sound and its not present on the audeze. I did that to the hd6xx and got good bass extension but less than audeze but I only tried it on a couple of songs so won't say too much

Thanks, that’s great info.
I am a bass head as well. In my home theatre there are four subs, two SVS Ultras in opposite corners to even the response and two near field behind the main chairs for tactile response. It sounds and feels amazing.

As there are no Audeze dealers in NZ now, I tried my HD6xx against the HifiMan HE560 and Edition X V2 yesterday. I really liked the X, but it’s $1,800 and it didn’t seem that much better than my HD. Bigger sound stage and voice placement, plus easier to drive. But I’m using a Woo tube amp, so I don’t need easy to drive.


I’m now thinking about trying a sub or butt kicker with my headphones. I’ve played a bit of PSVR with headphones and small sub running and that works well.

AVWorld, Computet Lounge and several others still deal in Audeze.

Can vouch for the former - have bought all my recent hifi gear through them.

I think the Audeze is more a collector's item. Very uncomfortable after half an hour, but it has a planar magnetic sound that is clearly lusher and different to conventional headphones. I bought it thinking it had loads of bass and I only enjoyed it after massive software sound manipulation. When I listened to it on a tube amp at the Melbourne shop it sounded not very different to the HD650, I was quite surprised. So I asked for a solid state amp and that brought them even closer. But it clearly responded to the software that came with my 4 year old Dell laptop. Which isn't going to hang around forever.

Bye bye love.
