OK, this is a "scientific" poll to measure Head-Fi's community headphone of choice. Your vote is given to your favorite headphone (un-modded and currently in production) regardless of how many of them you have heard. The poll is limited to 10 options, therefore the poll consists of three parts. 30 options should be enough, sorry if your feelings were hurt for not including yours. PLEASE VOTE ONCE, LETS MAKE THIS CREDIBLE! LINK TO PART 2 (Beyerdynamic, Grado):...
this ohm variations dont do any favors for beyer, it just confuses, the 600ohm should be named differently, like dt888, or something like that...

Coming from the HI-FI scene it feels strange that the top of the line costs like a decent cable. My origin and contemporary state is Hi-Fi, I just was listening to Laurie Anderson's Big Science in vinyl through a Halcro amp and into my beloved Kharma's CRM 3.2FE's and there is no headphone that could even come close to that...

It feels like fast, complex passages get smoothed out, and the overall "snappiness" is diminished. what do you say on this, about your w5000's?

An Audio Glossary Chesky Demo CD has a good example on Transients to test the speed of the system as well as an excellent description of the term. And YES! the 600ohm is faster than the 250ohm version, no doubt...

unless you go for the 32ohm 880, which I havent heard (so no comment on their sound), the 880 and the k701 arent good a good match with your amp in portable mode. I must add that I use the dt770 250ohm with an iqube v1 (portable) and works great, not as good as in a stationary amp, but good for the road. If your amp has high gain and a possibility for connecting it to a dc transformer at home, it might to the trick meanwhile you get a stationary tube amp....
