Is there a list of receivers that have Dolby Headphone?
One more Q. If you hook your headphones into the receiver, then I am assuming that the receiver powers them so that there is no need to buy an amp. Is this correct?
Okay, just one more. I have the Grado SR125's. They sound wonderful, but they hurt my ears, so I am thinking of getting an additional pair for gaming and movies. So has anybody out there listened to the Grado's and the Senn's that could offer me a comparison?
Dolby headphone is awesome. I know the HK 247 receiver supports DD headphones along with a few other past models. The headphone jack in the receiver powers your headphones. Yes. Some do a better job at it then others.
about the grado's.. Have you tried the grado flat pads? http://www.ttvj.com/index.php?main_p...ort=20a&page=3
This will help.
What Senn model do you want to compare to the Grado? Typically Grado's are bright, very upfront, where you are on stage with the artist.. Good with guitars, with a tight snappy bass.. Aggressive in your face presentation.. With a small sound stage..
I only tried 3 senn cans.. The 212pro/595/650.. Sold my 595 & still have the other two.. Senns in general are a total opposite of the Grado house sound, especially the 650's, which sound dark, slow, & boring incomparison. They put you 10 rows back, but have a wide sound stage with a lush seductive mid range. Very mellow & relaxing cans.. The 595's & 212pro's are more of a mixture of both, but still maintain the sen house sound.
