post #2776 of 4479

In terms of head time:

1.) AKG K240 MKII(warm and engaging with just the right amount of treble for my ears)

2.) Sennheiser PX-100 ii(can be too dark and bassy at times, a little too smooth in the upper midrange and treble, can be surprisingly fun and musical at times)

3.) Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro(not very engaging, a little bright but not enough to bother me, needs a tube amp to be engaging and fill out midrange, would be ranked #2 on a tube amp)

 

Headphones too new to determine their place:

Sansui SS-2(vintage late 60s to late 70s, amazing midrange, but lacks some definition)

My modest collection:

 

Sennheiser HD439 - Good all around performance.

Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80 - Excellent bass impact and extension but slightly fatiguing highs.

SoundMagic E10 - Fun sounding though slightly veiled and warm.

Monoprice 8320 - Extraordinary value (so much so that I've bought three more pairs after my first), great clarity and nice vocals but lacking in bass presence.

Koss PortaPro - I'm not sure what it is but I really don't enjoy these headphones, I can't put my finger on it but I just don't like listening with them.

Just curious, where would you rate the HE-5LE, and if you have heard one, Grado GS1000i.

post #2786 of 4479

1) ATH-A2000X 

2 tied) HD558, ATH-A700X & ATH-ES700 (They all serve different purposes and I like them at an equal level)

3) Yamaha EPH-100

4) ATH-M50 (The soundstage of this one was a bit too condensed for me & bass seems to overlap with mids but has detailed instrument sound for the price I paid)

5) Sony MDR-V55

Preference:
1. JH13
2. W1000X (J$ Beyer pads)
3. HD 650
4. A900X
5. Image X10

I had the Grado HF-2 recently enough that I would place them in between the newly padded W1000X and HD 650, closer to the 650.

W1000X with stock pads would be slightly below the HD 650.

I would put the HE-5LE where the LCD-3 is - tied with it on somedays, just below it on others.  I've owned the GS1Ki as well.  Didn't really do anyting for me.  It would be near the bottom.

we must.  cause I love the Mjolnir with the LC-3.  Just not with a lot of other more sensitive headphones.  Can't wait for the Statement Amp.  I'm going to jump right on that.
