I actually wrote a comparison between the two, and that's about where I feel they pan out against each other - the 950s are "right" and the RS-1s are "fun." smily_headphones1.gif

1. YAMAHA hp-50a (Stereo-mod, recabled and redampened)

1. AKG K240 Sextets (MP) (recabled, and refurbished)

both phones sharing the top due to the K240 comfort


1.5 Senhheiser HD 650 (good headphone)

2. K140 600ohm (the oldest model, like the K240~ish) (modded with wooden cups and K141 pads)

3. Fostex T50rp (slightly modded atm)

3. K242 HD

4. K240s

5. Etymodtic HF5 (with +7db Bass-boost)

6. Porta Pros

7. K701 (hate the upper-mid/treble)

6. K601

post #2214 of 5780

1. Audio Technica ATH-AD700 (amazing comfort, produces beautiful sounds when amped and has shaken off its "bass shy" tag with me)

2. Grado SR80i (much more aggressive sound signature, but find its soundstage a little lacking compared with the AD700, sometimes find it hard to wear during longer listening sessions)

3. Sony MDR-XB500 (my go-to cans when I'm listening to hip-hop and electronic music, pretty darn comfortable too)

4. Sennheiser CX310 (IEMs for when I'm on the go, can't comment on these too much)

5. Nocs NS200 (I barely ever use these, trebles are a bit sharp and shrill - though they might just need some burn-in)

Between the ones I've owned and currently own:
AKG Q701 > Beyer T5p > Shure SE535 > Grado SR325i > Bowers and Wilkins P5 > Sony XB500
post #2216 of 5780

1. LCD2, Sennheiser HD800, Beyerdynamic T1

2. Stax sr407, JH 13

3. Sennheiser HD650, Denon D7000

4. Grado HF2

5. AKG K701

6. Beyerdynamic DT990

post #2217 of 5780

In terms of only my personal preference, not necessarily which is actually the best:


1. Sennheiser HD555 (modded)

2. Superlux HD681

3. Sennheiser HD438 / HD428 (both modded)

4. Koss TBSE (although the SQ is better than the Senns, its not for me)

post #2218 of 5780

I'll rank my top 5.


1. AKG K601

2. Sony MDR-V6

3. Grado SR80

4. AKG K240s

5. Koss KSC75

post #2219 of 5780

wrong thread

post #2220 of 5780

1. DT990pro

2. HD595

3. SRH840

4. ATH-M50

5. Koss KSC75

6. JVC Flats


Would like to make SRH1840 my #1 but can't justify spending $700 on them.
