Starter Headphones: K240 vs Q40 vs DT 770 vs HD 25-1 II - Page 2

two year late thank you, now that's some appreciation.

I heard the hd 25 ii is a popular pick and recommended.

 

I like or love the sound of the Akg 240 mk2 and plan to get an entry level receiver just for more juice or is it not worth it?

-The MyTouch 3G had a terrible sound card. The K77's were lying again.

-The FiiO E5 sounds like mud.

-The K240s sounded awesome at the start, and now they sound normal. All the other students just happened to get a bad pair of whatever. :P

-Owl City's music is actually very, very complex. You just can't hear half the tracks on most consumer cans.

-Some of my favorite classical recordings keep making this page-turning sound right behind my head. It can be a bit eerie sometimes.

-I even enjoy wearing the K240s without playing anything through them, as a sort of ear-warmer/ear-hug thing. Is that weird? I just sort of automatically put them on at my desk.

-Semi-open is actually very nice. It takes the edge off the background noise, but I can still hear the phone ring.

 

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I just wanted to say "thank you."

 


Cool, IMO they were the best choice for your purposes. 

(I also would have recommended at least a listen to the HD25 1 II)

 

The DT770's and M Audio Q40's both have too much bass for my taste.
