post #4216 of 4495

Update to previous post:

 

1) Grado SR-80i - Great balanced and neutral sound. Use for listening to itunes on home PC (use Apple lossless for music ripped from CDs)  

2) Klipsh Image One Bluetooth - Efficient and good bass for listening to music on ipod/ipad when traveling

3) Blackbox i10 - Great sound for ear buds, can only use with ipod/ipad (3rd Generation or lower

4) Bose OE2 - Good sound but let my son use them since I got the Grado and Klipsh.

5) Syllable G08 Bluetooth - Heavy bass, fair to mediocre sound, Beats copycat, I gave them to my other son to use since I got 1) and 2) .

 

For a headphone amplifier I use Syba USB 2.0 24bit/96KHz DAC with Stereo Headphone Amplifier Sound Card (Great value I bought from Amazon for $41!).  This allows easy switching between Headphones and computer speakers (which are bose with subwoofer).

I hear you, I didn't use my DT880s much either.

Haven't owned my newest headphones for a while but I think I can make a decent list now.

 

  1. Philips Fidelio X1 (my only open headphone, granted)
  2. Onkyo ES-FC300 (<3 this for portable use)
  3. Shure SRH440 (needs a good source to drive properly; not that comfy)
  4. Sony MDR-X05 (still like it for bass, but it's really lacking in treble)
  5. CHC Silverado (I don't hate this headphone; I actually kinda like it, but it's... strange)

 

I would list the Koss KSC75, but I don't want people to get the wrong idea thinking I think it's so much better than my other headphones. I'd probably slot it in between the SRH440 and MDR-X05, but it's modded and is only really good for home use, for me. Very good for when I want to relax, though.

 

Also, my Sony EX37Bs broke. Good riddance; worst sibilance I've heard from a headphone. Planning to replace it with RHA MA750, since I have no IEMs at the moment. Was considering HiFiMAN RE-400 but I want something more bassy even though I like neutral sound signatures.

 

I hope to own Sennheiser HD 600s in the mid-future. Get it, mid? Ha. Ha.

I am pretty sure most people would rate is an overrated mediocre thing. pretty basslight to start with. it is good bass. detailed textured and controlled. But not much of it. 

 

The mids oh those delicious transparent wonderful fluent musical effortless mids ( and highs )

In terms of technical capabilities:
1) beyer dt880
2) Sony ma900 = M-Audio Q40
3) Denon c300
4) JVC HA s500


In terms of fun:
1) M-Audio Q40
2) JVC HA S500
3) Denon C300
4)Sony ma900 = Beyer dt880

Note: the dt880's are last because they're the least bass heavy out of all my headphones, but by no means are they 'boring'. They're completely neutral and that's what I like about them. They're the type of can you grab late at night when you just want to relax and listen to your music, the others on the list (except the ma900) are for when you want some heavy pounding bass that will make you jump in your place biggrin.gif
