Rank the Headphones that You Own. - Page 147

post #2191 of 4542

Been putting some serious time on the AKG K271's, so I think I'll move them up a rank. The ranking now being:

 

1. CD900ST's

2. K271's

3. DT770 Pro 80

 

The more forward mid range on the K271's make them good for low level listening and noisy environments. I recently flew (for the first time!) and brought the K271's, and they worked very well. To be honest, I expected planes to be louder. I think pretty much every car I've ever rode in was louder (or at least had more low-frequency noise). The isolation on the K271's was really nice for this, and really, I think the isolation on the CD900ST's would have be sufficient for the plane ride.

Haha. Sorry, I'm not laughing *at* you, it's just kind of a funny observation. I'd agree that aircraft generally aren't that bad - at least modern commercial jet airliners.

Obobskivich, the Sennheiser 280 was among my first choices when I started researching on headphones but I gathered from extensive reading that, except for the portables, most Sennheiser hps would benefit from amping -- and I am avoiding that route due to budget considerations. The CAL! it seems would be a better choice and I have asked a friend to get it for me (or the KRK KNS6400, depending on availability). Would you choose the CAL! over the ATH-M50? thanks.

1. AKG K550

2. Denon AHD5000

3. Grado SR325i

4. ATH M50

5. Philips O'Neill The Stretch

 

I know it's strange, but I think the K550s sound better than my D5000s. And while the Philips seems out of place, I got them for like $15 and I think for that price it makes a decent portable. I'm really paranoid about my headphones getting scratched and it's a huge relief to just pop them on and not give a crap about bashing them against the wall and so on.

This is harder than I thought, (good thread!) these are the main phones I have and owned.

Respectively;

 

HE-500

RS1i

HD650/K702 (sorry but I really think they are equally good though very different)

D2000 (sold)

SR225i (sold)

 

I think it's nice to put our past hp's on aswell as some peeps only have 1 or two at a time.

Just based on how I've been listening recently;

1. Grado RS-1i
2. Koss ESP/950
3. Sony MDR-F1

And that's a VERY close second. redface.gif It's hard to pick between those two, but I find I've been listening to the RS-1 as much as possible recently.

The RS1i's will always be my go to cans for acoustic and Jazz, they may not have the resolving quality's or refinement of my HE500's but they are more fun. And Enjoyment should come first!
