Head-fi Please I need your help! (Best closed headphone for classical)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey my friends. David here. I really need some advice. What do you audiophiles think is the best closed headphone for classical music......budget is not a concern. I'm talking about headphones in the thousands if need be. I'm considering the R10s, the Edition 9s, the L3000 and a few others. I have not ever been to head-fi meet and therefore have no experience with any of them.

Before you advise me let me just give a little criteria.....

Neutral sound quality is key! I love the sound of the UE10s and the HD600s. I'm also looking for something that attenuates some outside noise as I will use these portably. (I know it would be bizzare for someone to use 4 thousand dollar headphones outside, but I'll take that risk). Comfort is an issue as well.........

Your help is appreciated as always.

Thanks Dave

Wouldn't you feel less guilty if you shared that budget, divided among 2-3 other head-fiers? I'd be happy to help with accepting your generosity

Not having heard the R10s or E9s, I would say the R10s.

EDIT:
wtF Using the R10s outside and portable?!

Also dont think any of those are going to block much noise. Best bet is for the UE-10s that you already have.

i don't have any extensive experience with the headphones you list, but from what i have read, the R10 would appear to be the best choice for classical music. however, it is very expensive (5-6K) and even if cost is not a concern, they are incredibly difficult to find. between the L3000 and Ed.9, i suspect there may be a better closed phone for classical music (again, based on many impressions that i have read).

I say the Stax 4070.
Of those few closed headphones I have heard the 4070 stand in a league of its own. Give them a try...
