Also if you like old fashioneds and haven’t tried this yet get on it!
This one is really good at night whith some good jazz, or maybe some Sinatra tracks.
Edit: had to make one
Using Taylor’s BiB, and some apple whiskey from Kopper kettle
Edit 2: NFB 11.28 -> HD58X Jubilee with this track:
Wow, soo very good, I’ll just keep editing this post as I swap HP and keep sipping on my booze, I have about an hour left before bed time (flying to L.A. tomorrow so no over ears for a couple days, just the Andros and T2s)
HD700 really enjoyed listening to this track and the following:
Onto the HD800:
Liquid, “easy she come, easy she go” “got me feeling like the first time” wow what a great track, as the drink mellows with the ice melt and the haze hits, the tracks become so much easier to melt into.
this came on after and I was about to switch to the Focal Elex…but this pulled me back in and couldn’t walk away, just smooth and easy to listen to. I need to go grab the Elex or my purplehearts for some less analytical more musical listening at this point though…the joys of a half full American Trilogy and a side sniff of bourbon have my brain craving a more musical experience.
NFB 11.28 does not pair well with the Focal at the current jumper setting…it makes it too harsh and bright. Also be very careful when swapping between different headphones, when I swapped to the Focal from the HD800 I forgot to turn the volume down and I hurt my ears lol. Switching to the Purplehearts (mmmm…PURPLE!)
Purplehearts not feeling them right now, I did a pad swap and I think that is the problem they don’t sound as good with the Dekoni Focus pad elites, I had some ZMF vegan pads that were too big but put them on anyways and they really made the Purplehearts shine…might have to put them back on.
Anyhow, back to the HD58x it pairs beautifully with the NFB 11.28 and whatever it’s current jumper setting is ( I still need to open it up and do some tinkering, when I get back from L.A. I’ll play with it some more, plus I want to add an acrylic top so I can see all that beautiful circuitry).
great song just lively and enjoyable.
Real talk, this next track came on and transported me to almost 20yrs ago and breaking up with the first girl I ever loved (relative now that I have wisdom…well some wisdom ) I love that music can literally transport/create emotion that allows for the recollection of memories good/bad/inbetween, such a great experience, it makes me know that this hobby is not going to go away unless I go deaf lol…not funny =(
The HD58X is such a great lil budget headphone, it solves all that I personally didn’t like about the HD6 series, I haven’t played with the 660 for too long but I think the HD58X covers enough of what that HP can do that I will be satisfied with it.
Back to the HD800 because … well HD800
a great underground group local to Seattle, good track love the rhythm and beats, plus the lyrics can hit home at certain points.
Edit after I added this (inebriated typing yay) after the below comments, but had to share: wow this came up and it really is great advice lol…I remember listening to this a lot my Junior year in High School…such a great track.
and a good one to end on, it kind of brings this post full circle, just a great track. Good night, hope you guys got a kick out of the long ramble(ish) journey of some tracks I listened to while loosening up with some good spirits, and playing with a new amp/DAC and multiple headphones.
