HiFiMan HE-500.

 

And that's it now, since I gave my Grados to dad and Beyers to sister. The only other headphones I'm thinking I'll ever have are the Sennheiser HD-650 and if possible, the HiFiMan HE-1000 when people start selling theirs used.

Good choices for future upgrades. Kind of sad that the HE-1000 costs more than eight times the HD650 new.

My 650 isn't getting almost any head time ever since I got the 500... a spectacular headphone, especially after pad and cable changes :-)

My revised ranking after getting the GS1000i:

 

01. Sennheiser HD800 (the soundstage!)

01. Grado GS1000i

01. AKG K812 (more intimate but as detailed as the HD800.....to my ears anyway)

04. Audeze LCD2

05. Sennheiser HD700

05. HiFiMan HE400i (just got it, but liking what I hear)

05. Audio Technica ATH-AD2000 (very detailed sounding, but highs is a tad harsh, but vocals is lovely)

08. Beyerdynamic DT990/600 (clear highs, nice bass boost)

08. MrSpeakers Alpha Dog (somewhat less detailed sounding to me, but very creamy sound, great for simply chilling)

10. Fostex T50RP (stock)

If you want to hear 'infinite air' replace the metal grills with speaker cloth (or similar).

It's like taking off the final chain holding it back and setting it free.

As much as I like the HE-500, it demands attention due to it's energy. I like this for serious listening, but when reading stuff online or doing research, I need something warm and laid back to make sure I don't get all sucked into the energy of the music.

Here's to hoping someone gets marker all over the grill and can't stand the sight so they knock off 1K tongue.gif
