If you could resurrect any headphone, which would you pick?

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
If you could pick any headphone that has been discontinued and bring it back to life (to put it back into production), what would you pick?

My 1st vote? HD 414

My 2nd vote? Baby Orpheus.

What about you?

L3000 is still my most impressive cans Just gorgeous

I would choose the Sony MDR-R10, getting a pair at their original discounted price should be a treat. But not sure if I'd get a pair of Orpheus and matching amp instead.

I wouldn't want any manufacturer to resume their flagships though. This includes the R10, K1000, L3000 and Orpheus. I think it just takes away their prestige in a way.

If I had to pick one, I would like to see the HE-60 resumed.

I would like to see K1000 resurrected so I can acquire many of them and choose the best.

R10 - I honestly don't know what this originally went for.

HP2 - Wasn't this like $350? Heck yeah, I'd be all over that.

I haven't heard any of these so I have to choose Orpheus. K1000 is another hot looking babe.

I agree on that. Would rather see K501's come back at a reasonable price.
