post #2851 of 5732
It's a bit hard, really depending on the music type or movies. But anyway, I'll take my shot.

1. hd800, best for classical, well recorded jazz and movies.
2. ad2000, best for vocal and high speed bass.
3. lcd 2.1, good overall
3. hd650, very nice vocal warmth, mushy soumd but micro detail is very good, if you notice.
4. sony sa3000, very detail mid, vocal a little bit far.
5. ad700, wide, open soundstage, with a little vocal warmth, really love it, punchy bass too.
5.2 t50rp, very detail vocal for movie, but the bass is not really hard hitting.
6. koss porta pro, not bad for movie, really.
7. grado sr60

iem:
1. um3x
1.3. se530
2. ie8

I like the T1's better than the LCD-2.2s though.  I know I'm in the minority here.biggrin.gif

the T1's are being re-cabled with Black Dragon's as we speak so their ranking might change soon.....but thank you.....

There is no way that a JH13 is second to a T50RP, modded or otherwise. You can't fix poor transient response and bad decay. You also can't fix high THD.

 

It's possible to achieve a good tonal balance with damping but fixing slow attack and decay is not possible without heavily modifying the driver itself.

'Fixing' the transient response is very easy with DSP.

This isn't an objective thread, though. I prefer the JH13s to the HD 800, T1, LCD-2 myself (haven't ranked in the latter trio as I don't own them), and that's purely a subjective preference.

 

There are some headphones that measure like poop (e.g. vintage sextetts, ATH woodies) and aren't technically superlative by any measure that I'm sure many would place near or at the top of their lists.

 

I'm sure people's opinions go all over the place.

AKG of the Sextett vintage measure quite well apart from a couple treble spikes.

I don't count DSP effects as "fixing" the driver, because the hardware itself is still flawed.

 

Nonetheless it's quite impressive what can be achieved with convolution.

Call it fixing the sound, then. Either way you get better transients.

Is this your list?  i see you dont even own the jh13's....

 

you can't fix trolls either by arguing with them either

I'm not trolling. I'm questioning your credibility, since you seem to think that a $70 orthodynamic can be better than a multi-way, balanced armature, $1100 CIEM.

 

I have heard the T50RP, modded and stock, and was significantly unimpressed.

whats your credibility?  you dont even own the jh13's...so how can you even have an opinion on them?   I question your credibility if you base preference of gear based on price.  

 

So you were unimpressed.... what does that have to do with MY list?  I think MH1's were garbage but there are people who love them.  It doesn't make me right and them wrong or vice versa.
