Too many cans?
Each has its place!

The only headphone that I have that has stayed consistent to my ears is the R10s. It's very consistent at blowing away all my other headphones.
I remember the 1st review you posted on Headwize was a pretty bad review. You didn't like the R-10's at 1st until you got the RA-1, then you liked it since that point on.


kwkarth,

All have to say is, you need MORE headphones!

How many are there in that small pic? And name them!

Magic77: Why should there be one favourite headphone for you? Is there one favourite meal you'd like to eat every day? Or one favourite cd you'd want to listen to every day?

Certain headphones are just better suited for certain types of music. I really don't think that there are a true "perfect for every style of music" type of headphone in the world, that I know of. The same thing goes for amps and source, and even cables!!!

Thankfully, due to the relative low cost, and small size of headphones when compare to speakers, we can have many different pairs of headphones to play with, as well as different amps. This also happens to be one of the best things about this "hobby".

Do you think you could post a mini-review of the Beyer 250s? HeadRoom recommends them highly, but they haven't really been discussed much around here.

I like being confused!

For many a year I have rarely gone a day without listening to more than one audio source. Speakers, headphones, car audio, it is all good. It is also all very different sounding. It used to take me a while to adapt to the changeover. Now it is about 5 minutes before the "B" source starts sounding "normal". This is only true of "decent" gear. Poor equipment never really comes into focus.

The exception is the Etymotics. If I listen to them too much everything else seems to develop some undesirable trait. I suspect that it is due to several reasons, not the least of which is the fact that they are my most commonly used music coupling.

Ready...Switch!

Sure, I've been thinking it might be helpful as there does seem to be a dearth of info on the DT250s. I may not get to it this weekend, but will if I can.

Never. After a year of owning them all, I know exactly which headphone to use for a particular situation or mood. That's what I love about them; I have 4 speaker systems, not one of them is what I'd call "really hi-fi" (just a couple of Def Tech speakers and JBLs). I should have bought just one Martin Logan system. But I'd say all of my headphones (except for the dreaded B&Os) do qualify as hi-fi. The amps as well.

I wouldn't try going jogging with the R-10's or the Orpheus (+ the massive tubed amp).

So... no, not even those are perfect for any application
