Rank the Headphones that You Own. - Page 333

post #4981 of 4983

My first post in headfi.org. 

 

My ranking of my previously and currently owned headphones and iems, in terms of SQ (personal opinion) are:

 

1. Senneiser IE800 universal iem 

2. Hifiman HE500 full size open back

3. Hifiman RE600 iem

4. Phonak 232 iem

5. DUNU DN 2000 iem

6. Sennheiser HD650 full size open back

7. Sony XBA H3 iem

8. Sennheiser Momentum over ear closed back

9. Hifiman RE400 iem

10 Sennheiser IE80 iem

11. Sony XBA 40 iem

12. Phonak 122 iem

13. Ultrasone 580 full size over ear closed back

14. Sony XB 560 full size closed back

15. Sony XB 500 full size closed back

16. Philips O'neill on ear full size

17. Sennheiser CX680 sports iem

 

Of course, there are better headphones than my top ranked cans and iems, and my favorite auditioned cans are the LCD X3 and Sennheiser HD800. Will save money for these babies :)

 

Thanks all!

Congratulations and welcome to the forum communities!

 

Hmmm....  I may have to check out these PHONAK 232 iems you regard so highly.  Respect your Sony choices.  I am actually considering some XBA-A2 imports myself.  And of course the HD-650s are at the top of my personal list.

Thank you for the warm welcome :)

 

My rank is purely subjective, and probably my list will give you an impression that I tend to lean on bright-sounding headphones, the reason why Sennheiser HD650 is #6. Still, HD650 is still one of my favorites since it is comfy and non-fatiguing (SQ-wise), unlike the Hifiman HE500 (heavier in terms of weight and not as comfy). And the HD650 is a perfect combo with ifI Micro IDSD :)

 

The Phonak 232 is an old BA iem which is already phased-out, and you might not be able to find or buy it anymore. I bought it second hand from an audiophile shop owner 3 years ago.
