1) HD600 _and_ RS1 - depending on the mood and recording
1.4) K271S - close to number 1 :-)
2) SR80 - great for portable use when the lack of isolation is not a problem
3) HD25-1 - when I need good isolation
post #154 of 4068
1) AKG K501 - detailed - great for classical
2) Sennheiser HD580 - smoother - better bass - general purpose

4=) Sennheiser PX100 - travel and office

It's not that a $100 headphone can compete with a $450 headphone; it's that I've actually listened to much cheaper headphones (both open and closed) that sound way better than the V600. And I have fairly extensive experience with headphones priced under $150.

I think Eagle_Driver and I have similar tastes in cans.

Here's my list of headphones I have owned, in order of preference

Presently in my possession:
#1- K240S (Great bass presence and extension, liquid-smooth midrange, excellent for rock and any beat-driven music, warms up and fills in thin rock recordings, groovy as hell, and very comfortable)
#2- HD555 (great general use budget cans with a nice flat response)
#3- KSC-75 (king of budget portable phones)

No longer in my possession:
#4- HD580 (returned)
#5- SR125 (recently sold)
#6- DT250-250 (sold)

1:UM2
2:HD580
3:K271s/Zu
4:E2C
5:KSC50
