Hooted an upgraded Creek OBH-11 with Graham Slee Solo components for my HD6xx few days ago. Hopefully it's good and sufficient for the headphone. thinking of what to get for a DAC now. new to this club.

Sounds great. Sounds much bigger than its tiny size. Imaging is its forte, though soundstage and separation are very good too.

RRP is $1.9k now, this colour is no longer available, only regular glossy black is for sale. I got them used for a good price though, just 3 months old. I suspect they are not even fully burnt in.




Yep. One of the three limited ed colours.




I used to have a pair of cloned LS3/5A, those excel in vocals. The LS50 is much more versatile and genre friendly.

One word of advice. Though the LS50 is relatively affordable at $1.9k new, these babies really shine with good source and amp. I'm using the Lumin D1 as my source and also as digital pre to the Bel Canto Ref500S power amp, and I feel that a dedicated pre amp will definitely bring them to a next level.
They perform best with Class D Icepower amps. I tried them with my previous Ayon Class A tube & a friend's Cary power amp; both did not quite do the LS50 justice. So if you are interested in the LS50, be sure to try them with various amps if you can. YMMV greatly.


EDIT: Having said that, I personally feel that the LS50 is a no brainer at $1.9k, coz one will need to pay at least $3k minimum for other brands to get similar performance. That the LS50 is able to scale with electronics costing 10x its price tag and not sound out of place speaks volume about its value.
Hi Guan,

any experience on Harbeth P3ESR vs LS50? I heard that LS50 is very picky with source/amp. I am currently using a Class A/B amp. Not sure if it will sound good on the LS50.

Just hoot these: http://www.lazada.sg/sennheiser-hd-5...-11100330.html

Anyone knows where to get shorter cables for these? Bought 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable but only realized they use 2.5mm to 3.5mm cable.

Unfortunately no experience on the Harbeth P3ESR.

Yup, LS50 is quite picky with source & amp. I found out that myself. Some has said that LS50 pairs well with some tube amps, but they din pair that well with my previous Ayon, so that went. Also tried it with Cary solid state power amp; again, not a good match. They pair very well with Class D amps, especially the B&O Icepower, so I paired them with Bel Canto.

Which Class A/B amp are you currently on?

I assume you are referring to the Parasound Halo Integrated? I have heard it once at X Audio paired with the Usher Mini Dancer 1. It's quite a good amp for the price, though it's slightly too lean for my taste.

Becoz of the fussy nature of LS50, I'd encourage you to bring the amp to GP for a demo session if you are really interested in it. You can simply hook up a DAP via optical or coaxial with some music that you are familiar to get a feel. For Harbeth P3ESR, Patrick's shop is at level 3, but I'm not sure if he has a demo set available.
