post #4531 of 4542

I've had a lot of fun reading through this thread.  Here's my brief list:

 

1, LCD-2f

2. HD600

3. T5p (modded)

post #4532 of 4542
1. Stax SR009
2. Audeze LCD X with DHC Complement 2 cable
3. HiFiMan HE6 with Zeus 22 hard wired cable
4. LA7000 (Lawton modded with Jena Labs cable)
5. AKG K340 modded by Headphile

To my ears, the SR009 is my favorite. The SR009 driven by my A10 with NOS Raytheon tubes sounds superb and it's the combination that I listen to most of the time.

Given that the SR009 is your favorite, I find it interesting that you ranked the LCD-X above the HE-6. What makes the X stand out more to your ears?

I think the LCD X complements my SR009 better than the HE6. I use the SR009 most of the time and when I want something different I reach for the LCD X, perhaps because it's just a bit more forgiving than the HE6 on lesser recordings. Between the X and the 6, I wouldn't say either is better. Both are very good but different.

1. Hifiman HE-500. Soundwise the most pleasing headphones i've tried. Admittedly im still too scared for my wallet to try most 1000€+ phones. Go-to pair when listening to music. Driven by Schiit magni/modi stack.

2. Sennheiser Amperior. THE portable headphones for me. Tried a plethora of on-ears and IEM's and amperior delivers the full package. Neat looks, suberb sound (for on-ear cans), good comfort and great isolation.

3. Sennheiser HD598. Using these for gaming and movies and when he-500 grow too uncomfortable (after couple of hours usually). HE-500 made me realize these cans are actually not that good, most likely upgrading these into sennheiser HD600/650 next. Driven by fiio e10k.

4. Koss porta pro. The whatever-choice for rainy days and all kinds of rougher outside activities. Good for their price and incredibly durable, thats about it.

5. Sennheiser HD-215. My first "real" headphones from 10+(?) years ago. All-around relatively awful cans. Impossible to sell and i feel inclined to hold on to them for some reason.

The HE-500 are one of the absolute best at it's price and under $1k. You can still squeeze so much out of it by upgrading your amp and dac. No need to rush to summit-fi phones, you've got something wonderful there.

1. Still looking for #1.

    Started a thread on the subject here http://www.head-fi.org/t/734599/oh-no-m50-7506-honeymoon-already-over-now-what

 

2. V-Moda M80: Toss up with the M50's. Only pulls ahead because they are stellar portables.

 

3. ATH-M50: Great for casual listening but not good enough for mastering.

 

4. MDR-7506: Great highs, tight bass but too scooped.

 

5. HD-280: Great isolation for home studio, not my favorite audio.
