Details

Here we have a tweaked version of the world renowned Sennheiser HD600 headphones. We take a standard pair of HD600s and make a couple of modifications to the driver to make them sound less veiled and improve their low frequency square wave performance. We also replace the stock cable with one of our ultra-low capacitance Litz copper cables Terminated with twin TRS plugs to work with the balanced output on the Pono Player.

Using the Pono in balanced mode means you are using both of the internal amps - one per ear - which helps them drive higher impedance headphones like the HD600 and HD650. You also get less crosstalk and generally more detail and better stereo imaging.

The drivers on these have had the foam on the back of the driver removed to open them up a bit more and make them sound less veiled and we have surrounded the back of the driver in lead. 

The lead adds mass which helps the driver reproduce the very low frequencies more accurately. We did a bit of testing using a similar mass of clay and the lead seemed to improve things more noticeably. We are still not 100% sure why the lead made additional improvements but it may be something to do with leads diamagnetic properties pushing some of the magnetic flux back in towards the voice coil - either way it livens up the HD650 and HD600 and gives more low end detail.

The ultra-low capacitance cable helps with timing and impact and is more neutral than our silver plated copper cables giving a more realistic and detailed sound.
