Hi everyone, my rig as of now is as follows:

 

Sansa Fuze (Rockboxed) -> Fuze LOD (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Sansa-Fuze-MP3-Line-Out-Dock-LOD-Cable-7N-Silver-Plated-/280550479263?pt=Car_Amplifiers) -> PA2V2 Portable Amp -> Audio Technica ATH-ES7 cans

 

I'm thinking of upgrading my rig.  I have used the search function, and I have come up with a couple of ways I might upgrade:

 

  • ATH-ES7 -> Denon AH-D1001 cans
  • PA2V2 -> Headroom Total Airhead

 

OK, tbh, that's all I've come up with.  Sorry.

 

My criteria are:

 

  • Listening to jazz (a bit of rock thrown in too)
  • Must be portable
  • Any part of the rig can be changed...I really don't mind
  • I have a couple of hundred pounds
  • I am happy with the way my rig works at the moment, but probably the change I'm looking for is tighter (not louder, just tighter) bass, as well as crisper mid-range in general
  • Cans must be on-ear/over-ear (although from what I've read, over-ear tend to be too big, right?) - no IEMs please

 

Any advice would be appreciated!  (thanks in advance)

Hey Willthong

 

I wouldn't say the D1001 is an upgrade to the ES7 - I much prefer the sound of the ES7 but had fitting issues.  I still have the 1001 but is more like a back up now.

 

Haven't any experience with the amps, sorry

BTW you might want to add a title to this thread as there isn't one appearing ATM

Oh thanks.  I made a new thread actually because this one wasn't really getting any responses.

Incidentally, I've decided that the Sennheiser HD-25-1 II cans are the best for my upgrade purposes :)

Good choice - if I was more into cans then I would get these.  Not sure about the adidas version on the Apple website tho
