Rank the Headphones that You Own. - Page 198

post #2956 of 5679

Uhh...they aren't truly horrible stock. Average, maybe (for its original cost of $74 though, I'd even venture to say a little above average if given adequate power), but not horrible. Worse than a stock Yamaha HP3 that's available for cheaper, sure, but when compared to the other stuff that costs $74, or even $100, they can hold their own. The modded pair I have sounds fine (about half a step down from the K702), and there's minimal damping in it.

 

And while I'm here:

1. K702

2. T50RP RexAEterna Modded

3. Yamaha HP3 Modded

4. ESW9

5. Sextett LP

6. K271

7. K181DJ

8. Realistic Pro 50

 

The rest haven't been used in so long I forgot what they sound like.

Honestly, when I heard the T50RP they were very crunchy and unrefined, and the bass rolled off a lot. They were decently fast but that was about the only perk that I heard. 

 

Belief or disbelief rests with you.

I assume you'll be doing your own modding, then? If you're familiar with modding, don't be dissuaded by any discouragement. There's plenty of documentation of effective mods on the giant T50RP thread, and there's nothing wrong with tinkering with something that doesn't cost too much.

1. Audio Technica M50

2. Audio Technica AD900x = AD900

3. Audio Technica ESW9 

4. Sennheiser HD650 

5. Ultrasone Pro 900

6. Grado SR325i

7. V-Moda M-80

8. Ultrasone HFI-580

 

For those wondering why i rank the m50 top; simply it does everything I want in a headphone. 

 

Ultrasones sound too metallic in comparison to the m50, They would've been ranked much higher if i had not heard the m50.

Why place the HD650 so low? Just too warm? What are you amping them with?

I'm surprised that you like the PXC more than the MS1. Reasons?
