ksc75 only for 15$, and better sound than PP according to reviews here. Comfort is not great though.

One day, I'd get the dj100, just because I'm curious.

Updating my list again.

1. UERM

2. H-200

3. SRH940

4. DT1350

5. HD598

4. V6

 

H-200 was added to #2. HD598 moved up. They shine with vocal oriented music.

THe music details in HD800>>HD700. the mid range is really what i like about hd800. but hd700 has something that engages me more.. does well with my music. i am into rock,metal more.. so hd700 is little better for these genres. if classical,jazz,acoustic songs are ur choice then u will like hd800.hd700 doesnt deliver that sound.. its personal liking is'nt it...

I'm just happy to read things like this. Trying to decide between the HE-500 and HD 700, so any info matters to me.

Go with the HE-500 unless amping is an issue. the HD700 really cannot compare in speed, tonality, soundstage, etc...

T1

HD650

HD595

HD280 pro

post #3067 of 4067

New stuff!

#1: Grado RS1i

#2: Beyerdynamic DT 990

Split #3: AKG K551 / Focal Spirit One

#5: Sennheiser HD555

#6: UE700

#7: Shure SE215CL

#8: Sennheiser MM70i

 

It'd be AKG to #2, Beyer to #3 and Focal to #4 if not for the horrible cable that the K551 has. Non-detachable, bit too short for home use, too thick plug for iDevice use with most protective cases that I've seen. Renders the remote unuseable.

 

Edit: Picture for reference. Doesn't go deeper than pictured.

My priorities are speed, soundstage, detail, and sparkle. Would you still go HE-500?

The HE-400 has more sparkle than the HE-500 from what I've read. They may be a better bang for the buck option, though they have a recessed upper midrange/lower treble. Definitely the fastest and most detailed pair of cans I own and they are very sparkly (I have to EQ the highs down a little due to my ears' sensitivity to high freq).

Senn HD800

Brainwavz B2

Audio Technica AD2000x

Atrio M7

Grado SR-80

Denon AHD2000

TDK B200 (IEM)

 

I'm slowly moving up the can list, but for the longest time, I was solely an IEM user. The B2 is my most used and favorite overall, but the HD800 is something that I really appreciate when I listen to. AD2000x is really fun and is a can I can drive off my portable set-up really easily. I have the Atrio out of loyalty (FS1 was my first decent headphone/IEM), but it is rarely used over the B2.

 

The bottom two, I'm strongly considering selling. The recessed mids on the Denon annoy me -they sound fine on some recordings, dull on others- and the sound signature of the TDK is just boring. The SR80 is good for simple computer usage, it's great for casual listening (I found the PS500 to not be all that much better, aside from tighter and stronger bass).

 

Amps - Digizoid Zo, Leckerton 6 UHA MKII, Marantz SACD8004 headphone out, KR9400 vintage receiver (drives the SennHD800 beautifully)

How much  do you use your hd800 ? You give the feeling of appreciating the sound quality of hd800, but somehow, it doesn't completely work for you.

Most phones will have synergies with certain amps. I believe the HD800 to be end game phones and can appreciate their potential even though I don't have an amp (yet) to do them justice. So this is where I am right now with the gear I have.

Home:

HE-6
LCD-2 Rev2
HD800
HD600
D7000
DT880 (600 ohm)
ATH-W5000

Portable:

Westone ES5
Westone 4

The HD800 is headphone sex and mine's not even completely burned in yet. The issue is I do most of my listening in the office and open-back headphones that require amplification don't fit that profile too well. In contrast, over the past 2 years or so, I've listened through my entire CD collection (over 1000 albums) using my B2 and Zo in the office. I know all the nuances of that pairing and is just a very friendly, familiar and airy sound.

 

But one thing I look forward to now when coming home from the office is burning a disc and running it through the HD800. It's genuinely satisfying on a level the B2 doesn't quite reach, hence why I put the HD800 at the top, even if it only sees an hour or two of listening each day.
