on Sennheiser HD650

文章類別: Audiophilia — Alfred @ 5:06 pm

I am writing this in English that viewers from around the globe can have no fuss understanding what I want to say about the rumors and truth of Sennheiser’s greatest headphone - the HD650. And by greatest I mean it plain; having played with HD800 couple of times with different amp and DAC backing up they still sounds as horrible to me. The mids feel like a gun pointing to your ear in point-blank range, a hollow soundstage and a very linear feeling over all. The details presented on HD800 is phenomenal, but there is little pleasure in enjoying the actual music. Obsessive audio engineer may found it useful in some ways, but heck why not get a much smoother and enjoyable Beyerdynamic T1 instead? Go to somewhere to try out them and you know what I mean.

主動式近場監聽音箱系統運作中

今天去買了一對MoPads,現在桌面就是這個樣子了。對於一個只是用來聽歌、看電影和打機的人來說,這套東西完全是Overkill…

不過近來朋友Master歌曲後,能夠用Sennheiser HD650 + Beyerdynamic DT1350 + Ultrasone DJ1 + 這套Speaker cross check,也實在地好像有點用處… 呵呵

話說MoPads是甚麼?昨晚偶爾逛網時看到這塊看似吸音綿的東西,而不論是在Sweetwater、Amazon等的購物網站都被大讚特讚。其原理也不是甚麼新鮮特別的東西,只不過物料與外型設計得十分好而已。透過使用十分輕身、耐重、耐震(Damp得十分好!)的物料,將原本的書架式音箱很有效地與桌面(或其他平面)分隔開,使中低頻不會因回震而變模糊。因此,高頻伸延性、中頻的清晰、低頻的重力與穿透度以及音場都會有所改善。這麼小卻又這麼重要的一點,卻是很多人,包括我在內,懶沒留意到的事情。可是加上以後,原本音箱的威力得到百份之百的發揮,現在聽來、天哦,這套iCON C5A也實在太強了吧!?

如圖可見,Auralex MoPads的設計雖然簡單,但十分實用,在我身高以及桌面高度來說,這樣對上放剛剛好。
