Rank the Headphones that You Own. - Page 229

post #3421 of 4333

1. Koss Pro DJ 100 w/M50 pads (has my perfect sound signature. K712 Pro is pretty close, DJ100 with M50 pads has less treble and more low bass presence. Fuller, but less forward low mids. DJ100 sounds clearer and more detailed too with a transparent setup)

2. AKG Q701 modded (K712 would go here too once I can afford to buy one. I listened to it for a long time)

3. Sennheiser HD-650 (I really like this for gaming/movies but now with my modded Q701 it rarely gets used)

4. Sennheiser HD-598 - I always have liked how this sounds. Wish it sounded a bit clearer. It's one smooth sounding headphone to my ears.

5. AKG K400 EP (stock pads)

6. AKG K400 LP (Q701 pads)

Ath M50
Ath ad700
Ms1i

JVC HAS400 the JVC don't really belong with the others as they are purely my portables, but they sound excellent.

You and your DJ100...

 

I still haven't quite come around to it (especially not to the level of your affinity), but the first one I bought turned out to be a lemon and the second one sounded a whole lot better.

In order in terms of sound.

1.SennHeiser HD600 (absolutely phenomenal)
2. SennHeiser HD380
3. 2013 Beats Studio( pretty good actually)
4.ATH M50 (good, but not great. Very sibilant compared to the HD headphones I own. Sticky sweaty pleather.)
5.Beats Pro (painful to listen too with its forward midrange. For sale however)

Revised standings.

 

STAT  Sennheiser unipolar 2000
ORTHO  KWH HOK 80
STAT  Stax SR-5
ORTHO  Yamaha HP-50
DYNAM  AKG K 250
DYNAM  Beyerdynamic DT 990
DYNAM  Sennheiser HD 530
DYNAM  Sennheiser HD 600
DYNAM  AKG K 240 DF
DYNAM  AKG K 241
DYNAM  AKG K 141
ORTHO  Audio-Technica ATH-2
DYNAM 

Beyerdynamic DT 100

 

The East German wonder climbed to a deserved second place after mods. The unipolar maintains first over the HOK thanks largely to its out-of-world soundstage. The Stax are Stax and the modded Yamaha are tied with them. The rest are your average headphones, some better and some worse; excepting the ATH-2, which may get more attention in the future.

I like the table; that's a very informative layout. Does an example of the HOK 80 turn up for sale every so often?

post #3431 of 4333

The HOK sell often enough and usually for about $10 or less. They're not recommended unless you're really into modding headphones, hence the price.

Wow, VSD1 over Gratitude?  What did you like better?

Well I certainly appreciate both. Honestly, I'm a bit of V-signature guy and the VSD certainly offers more of V than the Gratitude. Certainly would be put the Gratitude right up there in clarity though.

5) Beyerdynamic DT 990

 

Sometimes I prefer the HE-500 over the LCD-2s with some genres of music. Also my everyday use headphone for gaming/casual listening is the HD 650. Also at times I want a more neutral sound like the T1. Just depends on my mood. It's the beauty of having a variety of headphones that cover all the sound spectrum well.

my #1-3 is the same!

1) Audeze LCD-2 Rev.2

2) HiFiMan HE-500

3) Sennheiser HD 650

4) Westone umx

5) Earsonics sm3
