I probabily would've had to file for bankrupcy if i bought all these from Korea or Japan. In the end the high rates for japanese yen vs dollar saved me so much money. (rates not so high anymore though)

I would put LCD 2.2 above HE-500 if it wasn't for comfort issues.

Lol. I feel the pain in Korea. Damn headphones are so expensive. Korean made headphones are cheap though(though there aren't many "high end" hps from Korea).

Ironically a lot of us from elsewhere in the world order headphones from Japan all the time because they're way cheaper there. That's for Japanese headphones though.

ya, thats true. But i don't think i've ever bought headphones in korea though. Just looked from distance in disgust. I would buy only occassionally in japan when i buy audio technica.

 

but ordering phones to an american friend and picking it up during vacation = currency win (not so much anymore though)

That is unthinkable that you rate RS-1 in the first place, I owned RS-1i for 2 month, it was a short marriage with Grados

I know right, I still think of my Headphones as I do women... a wonderful compainion and I've spent my life trying to find the perfect one... LAWL

 

Non the less... [based on what I own and owned]

 

w1000x / Byerdynamic Dt 880 Pro [the perfect Duo for me]

Byer Dt 990 Pro/ Fostex T50RP Mad Dogs [Perfect Bass Head Duo, one bright and tight, one dark and mellow [both ofc are on the tighter side]

Sony MDR Xb 700 

 

I'll have a K550 to add to that list soon

Hi all,

 

As mentioned in another thread in the forum, I think I like better the 558 over the 598 because its sound is transmit more "emotion" to me. But the 598 are very nice headphones and I like them a lot for Jazz and movies.

signed... sad but true. The HD598 just has more treble, which is not always a good thing.

plus, with some easy mods, the HD558's FR is almost identical to the newer HD600 with a bit more harmonic mess. (still better than most cans on the market)

I prefer IEM over headphones...so here I go.

 

IEM ranking:

1) Westone UM3X (red) ------I prefer this over W4 by hair because it gives the most isolation + fit.

2) Westone 4

3) Yamaha EPH-100

4) VSonic GR07

5) JVC HA-FXT90 -------- (Just had it. still need longer burn-in hope it gets real better like GR07)

6) Klipsch x10

7) Yamaha EPH-30------- (if paired with Creative Zen nano, these sound fantastic)

8) V-Moda Vibrato

9) AKG Q350 

10) Klipsch S4i 

11) Sony XBA-1

12) JVC HA-FXT51

13)  V-Moda Remix 4-S

14) Jlab J5

15) Rocket fish fire 3 ----- (crappy IEM; best for watching movies...)

 

Headphone:

1) AKG Q460

2) AKG K518 LE (Green)

3) Sony MDR-ZX600

4) Klipsch image one --------(worst headphone I had...I regret for owning it...equivalent to Beats headphone I'd say and paid full retail price before I discovered amazon)
