Now that I have a bit more headphone experience...

 

-Stax SR-Lambda (THE headphone for me, in both comfort and sound presentation)

-Stax SR-202 (recessed midrange and higher clamping force are why it loses to the original Lambda)

-Audio-Technica ATH-AD700 (comfortable, excels at gaming, but seriously lacking in bass)

-Panasonic RP-HTF600 (cheap, reasonably comfortable with light clamping force, good at gaming, sounds good once burned in)

-Philips CitiScape Uptown (doesn't leak sound, reasonably balanced frequency response, but poor at gaming)

-Sansui SS-20 (needs new pads more than anything, being a vintage headphone with pleather pads that I haven't found decent replacements for yet)

 

-Sony MDR-CD180 (comfortable, sounded okay, but the headband snapped)

 

-no headphones

 

-GE H-22 (Worst. Headphone. EVER. I hope you only like mids, because this thing has no extension either way. Seriously, if you think you've heard the worst headphone ever, you've never heard these.)

New addition*

 

 

1. LCD-2 Rev. 1

2. Darth Beyer Terminator V4*

3. Ultrasone Pro 900

4. Darth Beyer V3 deep cup

5. Sony MDR-XB700

6. Denon AH-D1100

7. Sony MDR-XB1000

 

 I've only heard 1 of the headphones with my current dac and amp which is the Dacport LX and Burson Soloist and that's the Terminator V4. All the rest I only heard straight from my computer sound card which is an X-Fi Titanium card. Maybe if I heard all the others with my new set up then my opinion would change, but even so I would still rate the LCD-2 above my current Terminator V4. Now I really wonder what the LCD-2's would sound like with my current set up.

Interesting that you rank the Terminator above the Deep Cup.  I've never owned the latter, but there were many that touted them over all other iterations. (save for the 600ohm driver transplants)  If not here, would you mind posting a comparison in the Darth thread that you've been so graciously keeping us up to date in?

 This is a joke right? 

post #2349 of 4691

1.HE-400 (wins by cleaning up a lot of the 650s flaws, which also has to do with the 650's presentation of "lack of flaws")

2.HD650

3.D5000

4.Mad Dog t50rp

5.Beyer DT990 600ohm

 

Most of this is through the Asgard, Lyr will be coming soon so this could change (but probably not).

RS-1

Interesting.

I was looking to pick up one of these two headphones as a semi-closed solution, but I have been going back and forth.

What are you impressions of the differences and attributes both of these headphones bring to the table?
