post #3286 of 5679

Sound Quality

1. AKG K702 65th AE

2. MrSpeakers Mad Dogs

3. Westone 4R

 

Use

1. MrSpeakers Mad Dogs (on my desk and portable around the house)

2. Westone 4R (portable on the go)

3. AKG K702 65th AE (on my gaming rig and on my desk for classical, jazz, and youtube)

 

I listen to music much more than I game. The AE, therefore, gets the least headtime out of all despite having the best sound quality. I like my music to sound more closed in rather than as open as the AE, except for jazz and classical. This leads to the MDs getting the most headtime and since I spend a lot of time on campus my 4R gets almost as much.

Updated list:
By SQ:
Grado SR-80i with black cherry cups
Klipsch x10

By use:
Klipsch x10
Grado SR-80i

I use the Klipsch at school and on bus rides to band events, so they get a lot more headtime than the Grados. When I get home I do usually indulge in one album on the Grados smily_headphones1.gif

Ahh then you must have misunderstood what that list was for. the purpose of it was for the amount of time I have been using my headphones and my akg and ksc were my newest ones therefore making them my "least used" headphones

That's not much of a ranking, that's more of a timeline. I'd say rank them by sound and just be done with it.

It seems then, that you must have accidentally skipped my other list, in which I talk about how each one sounds and the sextetts are 1 as they are fantastic

1. Koss Pro DJ 100 / TB + M50 pads

 

2. AKG Q701 - Totally smooth with nearly everything on my Micro Amp + Modi (both transparent). Sounds good with E17 DAC too.

 

3. Sennheiser HD-650 (this sounds pretty balanced, but I got a little more mid-bass with new pads and it became very slightly more muffled sounding). I use this for gaming/movies.

 

4. AKG K400 EP (see through screen, deeper pads, less treble than LP). Sounds like a more forgiving Q701 that's darker. Scored this for $69 on Amazon mint!

 

5. Sennheiser HD-598

 

6. AKG K400 LP (very trebly/thin. Not very warm at all and almost requires K601 pads)

 

7. AKG Q701 + Anniversary pads (this is 99% identical to the Anniversary or so they say) - Hate it. Seems warmer, but can't really hear much of this increased bass. Just sounds like less treble and more muffled sounding.

 

BTW the two K400s have totally different drivers. Weird huh? My K400 LP driver looks like a K500 driver!

 

I would say my least used headphone now is the HD-598. Not sure why since I like it so much.

 

The ranking is also based on how much time i've spent with each. I've purchased about a dozen DJ100s so far and most of them are gone now. Nuts! They do sound maybe 20% better with M50 pads. I don't like them as a portable.

 

Right now I'd say I use my Q701 for music 75% of the time.
