I disagree with your ranking! 

 

If you switched #2 with #4 then I would say your ranking is right on the money.  :tongue:

Have sold some and added some since my last ranking,

so a new ranking is in order.

 

Grado RS1i is still at the top.

 

Then:

 

AKG K712

Beyerdynamic DT880 Premium 250

AKG K702

Sony MDR Z1000

Beyerdynamic T51p

Sony MDR 7520

Thinksound On1 (w/aftermarket cable)

Focal Spirit Pro

Sennheiser Amperior (Ireland)

Audio Technica ATH M50

Koss PortaPro Classic (they're great, but the others are better...)

Sennheiser PX100 II

How would you describe the T51p? I had a T50p a long time ago, but I fear I've almost forgotten how it sounded.

post #4161 of 4454

Hmm...

 

1. Audeze LCD-2

2. Sennheiser HD600

3. Westone 3

4. Phiaton PS320

5. Alessandro MS1i

 

Somehow though, I find the Audeze a bit fatiguing after a bit... might be the weight.

2. AKG K240 Studio.

3. Audio Technica WS55 Solid Bass.

4. ATH M50.

post #4167 of 4454

1. Shure SRH1840

2. B&W P7

3. Audio Technica ATH A900 (my first pair of headphones bought from Audiocubes a long time ago)

4. Shure SE215

5. Klipsch S4

 

I'm a Shure fanboy. Had the SE535 as well a few years back before losing it on a flight. I'm saving up to replace it, or perhaps I might just step up to the SE846.

At the moment, organized by how much I like the sound because technicalities aren't as important to be as being able to listen to a headphone for hours at a time:

 

ZMF x Vibro (it isn't the most technically proficient, but its sound signature just works for me at the moment)

Hifiman HE500

ZMF V1

Hifiman RE600

Audio Technica AD2000 (I'm having trouble selling this...I'm tempted to keep it but I need the money)

Monster Turbine Pro Copper (Edited from the original version. I really like these and the Golds after digging them out again)

Shure SE530

Monster Turbine Pro Gold

Yamaha HP3

DUNU DN1000

Modded PortaPro

Beats Pro

AKG K271

ACS T15

Realistic Pro 50

Velodyne vTrue

DUNU Tai Chi

AKG K181DJ

 

The rest I haven't used in so long I'm not bothering to list them because I barely remember how they sound.

I've been tempted in the past to buy ZMF modded headphones, but the ZMF x Vibro is soooo expensive. ;~; Considered Mayflower, instead, if I pick a modded T50RP.

 

I looked at the Monster Turbine series quite a few times, but I have my doubts as to whether or not they're worth the money. Not bad performers, but every person I know and talk to who I can consider an "audiophile" thinks Monster makes crap headphones, and their IEMs are no exception.

 

But they still look cool.

 

EDIT: Just noticed modded PortaPros are right above Beats Pro. Vanilla Ice-burn!

I have been considering the ZMF as well. Hopefully someone can chime in, coming from the A900x/K550 and hoping for a worthy upgrade!
