Equal total satisfaction between IEM Fidue x3 hybrid  &  Planer closed back Oppo PM3

 

Cant say one is better than the other as they are quite different but I love them both dearly :)

1)Q701-Love the soundstage
2)Kef M500-I just like the sound signature. You have to put the on your ear properly to get bass right.
3)NAD HP50- Awesome bass never bleeds into sound
4)PHILIPS X1-fun,fun,fun
5)SENN AMPERIORS- Great workhorse can use when doing chores or exercising. Never falls off head.
6)HE400- They always seem to be sibilant. No matter what I do.
7) Senn PX 100ii- Warm sounding

1)  Beyerdynamic T1 - My Go to phone right now.  Incredible imaging and detail.

2)  Fostex TH-600 - Fun bass and fantastic for metal music.

3)  Mr. Speakers Alpha Dogs - Excellent isolation and good with harsh recordings.

 

The three compliment each other very well.

1. Q701

2. SR225e

3. DT 990 Pro

4. T50RP MK3

5. ATH-M50

 

All of these are very genre dependent; however, I feel that the Q701 is the best all-around.  Oddly enough, even though I don't love the sound of the T50RP MK3 (it's still very good), I find myself listening to it longer than the others when I'm actually using it.  There's just something about the sound that feels a little unnatural--like each of the instruments were recorded separately, and a composite recording was produced.  Despite this, it manages to do a lot of things right, making it very difficult to put down.

 

An equalizer might change the order slightly.  The DT 990 Pro might actually be Number 1 if EQ'd (sorry, purists), but I generally don't bother messing with it.  I assume that tubes might have a similar effect.  At the moment, I run everything through a O2/ODAC.

1. Momentums 2.0

 

Sadly that's all I can rank today, but a certain LCD2 should be making its way over to me soon so I can hopefully re-update my list! :happy_face1:
