post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
un-amped for portable use with i-pod. wide variety of music. Can anyone shed light on the pro`s and con`s of each, and if anyone has any other suggestions I would be very grateful. They have to be full size, cos I don`t like the feel of anything else. thanks in advance

You can try the GMP 8.35, or the Pro-550/DJ1-Pro. If you're in to acoustic music the K271MKll can be a great option.

The 750s are the only one that would sound great via a sansa fuze. I own the 750dj, currently trying to sell it though. It's better than the D1k outside of comfort. I'm just not a closed back fan.

neither the m50 or the 840 will sound as nice as the 750dj will unamped.

For what it's worth, I'm keeping my M50 and getting rid of my SRH750DJ. I just think the M50 have a great sound, and really works with all kinds of genres. I found the 750DJ to be a bit more like a M-Audio Q40 sound, but with too prominent of bass that veiled a lot of the sound. The highs will pierce through the veil every now and then, but the headphone overall just felt out of place. I know some people will really enjoy it as it is quite different from other similar bassy headphones, but it wasn't my cup of tea. I would compare the 750DJ to Equation RP21 and M-Audio Q40.

The M50 just seem to fit in a different crowd I felt, and seem to be more enjoyable for vocals than any other bassy headphone I've listened to. I actually found the M50 easier to drive with my Sansa Fuze than the 750DJ. Both, however, are easily cable of being unamped.

I had both as well and returned the SRH750DJ also. Mainly because the 750DJ did not fit so great.

The 840s are great but you really need an amp to get the most out of them. They're also a little on the heavy side, which can be uncomfortable. Most people like to bring up the M50 but unless you burn them in a few hundred hours or dampen the bass their sound is a little on the dark side. Have you considered the SRH-440? It's a fraction of the cost of the others and out of a portable source it sounds very similar to the 840. (albeit seemingly easier to drive)
