LCD-2 = T1 > HD800 (not by much).

Haven't heard the Ed10 or HE-6 or any Jerry Harvey products

 

This is what I would say:

 

LCD 2 = HD800 > T1 > D7000  = Edition 8 > HE-5 > PS1000

Forgot the Edition 8s/D7000s, so here's mine again:

 

 

LCD-2 = T1 > HD800 > Edition 8 > D7000 > DX-1000 > PS1000

 

(Like Dave, I have yet to hear the HE-6 or Edition 10s).

HD800>JH13=ED8>DX1000=LCD2

 

Nobody around here at any meets has had the T1 and i haven't heard it or the ED10.  I have heard the three above extensively though and they are really all superb.  I think i heard the D7000 at a meet but it didn't give me enough of an impression to place it up there with those.  Never heard the Grado, I have a lower end one i gave to my wife to use out of the computer-a SR225...no interest in the Grados really.

having heard all of the headphones listed, except for the Grado's and those particular Stax(though i didnt really like the O2'S when i heard them at canjam).

 

i say the jh-13's are the best, with the LCD-2's a very close second, with the hifiman's a bit further behind (and i i know they dont really count since they arent out yet, but the JH-3A is the best, at least the version shown off at canjam was)

 

and to be honest, i dont think the rest of them are even in the same category(baring the ones i havent heard) though i would say that i personally like the Ed8's and D7000's more than both the HD800's and the T1's.

picking only one is very hard, but my vote goes to HD800.

post #86 of 89

Having not heard the JH13-JH16,

HD800>LCD-2=K1000 B/H>AMT>PS1000=T1>HD650=HD600>K701=K702>DT880> MSPRO>GS1000>.............D7000.

 

The D7000 had the doofiest/wooliest bass I've heard - not impressed at all.

HD800s for me.

HE-... series brought high end sound to those who didn't have the money to buy other flagship models, other models that perhaps did not outperform the HE series.

How about adding Stax 507 that came out in September? Though I doubt many have heard it yet.
