post #4441 of 4452

Back on track and based purely on usage at the moment  as most are equally good in their own way. The DT150s are overall favorites at the moment and probably for the rest of my life, they should last forever along with the HD25s

 

Beyer DT150

Musical Fidelity EB50

Sennheiser HD25

B&O Form 2

Sony PFR-V1

Beyer DT440

PortaPro

Denon AH C751

At the moment, with the plethora of things I'm in the process of shipping out (or have recently shipped out if that's not considered cheating)

 

1. Audio Technica W5000 (I didn't like them until I bent the headband to fit my head; I don't understand why AT just outright refuses to fix this design. Now, they have actually taken my breath away multiple times, and I just got them today)

2. Oppo PM2 (With some melamine in front of the driver to take some of the treble peak)

3. ZMF x Vibro (Newest tuning, a really capable headphone. I wouldn't be surprised if people like it more than the Alpha Dog, which I wasn't the biggest fan of)

4. Hifiman HE500 (I liked it a lot more the first time I had it. It just sounded meh the second time around)

5. Audio Technica W10VTG (It's a really euphoric-sounding headphone, but after comparing it to the W5000, it just sounds really congested)

6. [Grado RS1e] (I don't own this but have it on loan right now so I'll put it here as a frame of reference I guess. It's a Grado, and I happen to kind of like Grados, but there's something about this one that doesn't sit too well with me for anything other than ska and some other music)

7. Audio Technica AD2000 (It's just weird sounding in a great way, but it's the kind of headphone your ears have to adjust to. Shipping this out tomorrow sadly)

8. Master and Dynamic MH40 (Very consumerish sound, haven't gotten to use them much actually)

 

I have more, but I really haven't used anything else for months.

What makes you like the T1 more than the AD?

Here's an article that is contrary to his preference. I think some people like a sound signature that is more treble tilted or detail oriented. That is something the T1 is amazing at. The author of this article even goes on to say that he thinks the Alpha Dogs soundstage is deeper. :blink: so really it is a matter of opinion. I honestly need another flagship showdown at the next Head-fi meet I go to in San Diego this fall

Their sound signatures are very difference but I almost prefer all aspects of the T1 over the AD, except noise isolation. The AD is the best close-back headphones I've ever heard though.

hmm, interesting article!

1 - A2000X

2 - SR-404 with 507 pads

3 - SA5000

4 - AD1000PRM

 

AD1000PRM have most head time though, being the most comfortable out of all of them. A2000X is easily my current second favourite headphone after SR-009.

I read it a few days ago.  I appreciate the time and effort it took to compile the review.  Unfortunately I found it to be contradictory and sometimes incomprehensible.

Yeah, it's pretty convoluted but I still found the conclusion interesting: "if I were forced to offer an overall winner to you, there is no question that the Alpha Dog absolutely, brutally emaciated the 11 other models in this report. Disregarding price completely, it compares and even bests some of the $1000+ models out there, yet the drivers original manufacturing price was probably less than $10. No other headphone offers as much as the Alpha and it costs hundreds less than it should. Originally, I had written this report with total disregard to pricing and reviewed each model as if they were all the same price. All mentions of pricing on each headphone section were edited in during the final draft copy, I’d originally tried not to let pricing affect my judgment. Even then, the Alpha Dog still bested most of the other headphones in many ways…the fact that it costs $599 is just a massive bonus. This fact should embarrass the hell out of every other company out there."
