What's the best amp, used or new, for around the $150 mark nowadays? My Go-Vibe V5 isn't bad, but it's a definite step down after I got rid of my Hornet to finance the purchase of some guitar gear.
I've owned the SP's before and they were good--- not great, but very good. Never tried the K81DJ's. Considering smaller size, super durable and closed were my two main requirements, these popped up on my hitlist fairly early. What other options would be out there that fit these requirements besides these two cans?
Looking for any of these in good condition, preferably w/ their gumstick batteries & accessories, but this isn't a necessity if the price is right. please PM if you have one you're not using. thanks!
K240S is a little too big, and for that size of can I have the DT150-- talk about a rugged headphone! Just need something closed and smaller and more portable than my DT150's. I've tried the K141's, not bad, but just didn't end up burning in the way I thought they would. I could always go for a refurb'ed pair of V6's, but I always end up getting rid of them for one reason or another.

I've A/B tested the AKG and the Philips up against an SP, and I'd take either one of them before the Senn-- not by a lot, but still. I've been looking at the K81DJ as a good all purpose beater headphone for rock music, something that will really take...

Virtually any portable amp handles them with aplomb.......quite noticibly better than SP. How does the Concorde version perform...
For those who have tried both, which would be a better general use can for hooking up to a dvd player, using at the gym w/ an iPod, amping for bedside use, and just a general "beater" can that will last a long time and sound good for rock music? I know the Senns are more expensive, but all the parts are serviceable on them too, which makes them possibly a better can for the long haul. How durable are the K81DJ's?
There's been alot of attention and praise for the HD25-1 lately, especially now that the HD25-1 II is out. I've had both pairs in the past, and I'm looking for another good (read: not great, just good) pair of smallish, durable closed headphones that I can use either unamped or amped as around the house/going to the gym/beater headphones. Trying to keep it under $100. I also think I'd prefer the simpler headband design of the SP version, and the fact that I can lay...
For the past few months or so since selling my RSA Hornet to finance some guitar related gear, I've only been using my DT150's sporadically paired with a Go-Vibe V4 or using them unamped with my Shuffle. They sounded most excellent with the Hornet--- sick, actually. Just so big and deep and crisp sounding. But with the Go-Vibe, they just don't sound the same. Aside from getting another Hornet, what other portable amps are out there that provide some really deep bass?...
I've been away from head-fi for quite some time now (6 months or so!), and have been enjoying my Beyer DT150's for music and movies. A little disappointed in my shift from a Ray Samuels Hornet to a Go-Vibe V3, but the headphones still sound great. Problem is, they're pretty big. I'd like something I could shove into a backpack for on-the-go use and something that's easier to wear when laying down. My requirements are: needs to be closed must have small earcups...
