Thanks for the posts guys.....actually, mine are HD25-1's I believe and they are the standard hifi 70ohm version and not the 600ohm broadcast versions. The upfront - almost compressed sound - is what I find fatigueing and so if a different cable can calm it down a little I'd give that a whirl. Again, knowing that with the Graham Slee stuff the sound is sweetened then also handy. I've found a stockist nearby and I'm hoping to take my HD25's down to demo with the amp...with a bit of luck they'll carry stock of the HD650's too. The Grado range sound too lively for my personal tastes but I'll try and demo them too if I can....
Are the HD650 spare cables easy to come by and a direct replacement?
And you're right about the isolation...the HD25's are so sound enclosing that only a lowish ouput renders you completely locked away from the rest of the world......or the wife.....delete as applicable.
Hi, I would definetly get a Headphone Amplifier. Headamp.com , is a great place to start looking I have the Gilmore Lite and it's just great , it's not that expensive either but be prepared to wait about a Month for it as they are hand built, and I would also consider the Alessandro Headphones as well. Theres a pair on e-bay at the momment to. Best of luck.
Eddie, would be great if you'd let us know the outcome . James.
I shall, but it'll be a little delayed as I'm expecting the arrival of my first born child in the very near future..
Once again, thanks to all concerned who have kindly posted comments and suggestions here.
Congratulations & Good luck, It'll be wonderful... closed back becomes a more attractive feature once children start running around with limitless energy
