Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro 250 OHM Semi-open reference headphone

Comfortable indoor reference headphone

Chiek

Pros: Comfort, wide spacious sound stage

Love this pair of headphones. Huge sound stage. Great for classical music. The bass is not shabby and is good enough to enjoy Coldplays Viva la Vida.   Of course comprable amplifiers are necessry accompaniment for the DT800Pro to perform optimally.      My wires are starting to be faulty from wear and tear after 2 years and not from heavy useage.

Sennheiser HD 650 Headphones

“The praise that has been heaped upon the Sennheiser HD650 headphone is something that probably every headphone OEM envies. The HD-650 is nearly a decade old and yet is still viewed by many as a top tier dynamic, worthy flagship, and is the benchmark that many measure price to performance ratio against. I personally was cruising along quite happy with my set up… Running almost exclusively...” --The Fed

Sennheiser HD 600

“The Sennheiser HD600 is an open dynamic circumaural head-phone which Sennheiser market for audiophiles, and also state as ideal for studio monitoring.     Pre-amble (about me at time of writing) I'm a 44 year old music lover.  I don't say audiophile - just love my music.  Over the last couple of years, I have slowly changed from cheaper listening set-ups to my current...” --Brooko

Audio-Technica ATH-M50S

“(Disclaimer: This review was written while considering the very low price-point of the M50, and what you can get for that amount of money. It does not mean the M50 can go up against the high-end headphones that cost several hundred to thousands of dollars. My main headphones are high-end headphones, and the M50 is only used while I'm doing tracking or traveling. I wouldn't use it as my everyday...” --Lunatique

Sennheiser HD 598

“(This is my First Official Review in the Head-Fi Community)  HD 598 Review The HD 598's are a worthy headphone of the Sennheiser Brand. As this headphone is rated for audiophiles, I will be reviewing it at that level of sound. This particular headphone's strength consts of amazing highs, and I recommend it for its soundstage, clarity and comfort. However, this headphone is best suited...” --TheFishEy

Sennheiser MOMENTUM

Sennheiser MOMENTUM

“I will get my bias out of the way first: I really enjoy the sound of many Sennheisers, and in my opinion the Momentum Full Size is the best sounding portable I have tried, and the best all-round sounding consumer-targeted portable headphone on the market.    Appearance-wise the Momentum is, as I mentioned, an exquisite feeling headphone. It reminds me of that modernist British...” --bpandbass

Superlux HD-668 B

“ As the saying in the title goes, this has never been truer than for these headphones. Thankfully, Superlux sells sound quality, not an overhyped brand name. Can you really get great sound for $40? Oh yes, and it's right here.   I was recommended these headphones by a fellow forum member and after a day or two of investigation I decided I really liked what I read about them and...” --WrxSTI

“I've owned these for the best part of a month now and have done some extensive listening with them both in extended listening sessions of several albums and of comparative listening sessions with with my HD650. I feel I am ready to comment on the qualities of these phones.   I had always intended to put these and the HD650 against each other and sell one, as I had thought it would be an...” --EddieE
