It sounds like a very good deal on the Pro900s, and they seem like they would complement your existing headphones nicely. I say go for it!
I am looking for an openback fullsize that has the same sound as my UE triplefi 10. I've tried Grado SR80 & AT AD700, both of them sound cold & harsh. I want something that sounds exactly like my UE: smoooooth bass & treble, moderate but deep bass, nice full mids, soundstage intimate enough for rock & pop.
Also, I have a big head so tight headphones like HD280 can be very uncomfortable. The AD700 is the most comfortable headphones I've ever tried.
Thanks in advance.
I'm not sure if you'll be able to find an open headphone with the bass of the TF10s. I'd recommend you look into the Denon D2000s, which are comfortable and should provide the sound signature you're looking for.
Hi everyone... Long time lurker here... I have a pair of Etymotic ER4-P's that I am going to post on the For Sale / For Trade once I have enough posts (didn't realize that was a requirement until I tried to post on that page)... So I figured it might be a good time to check what might be a good set to look for in trade (or if I sell them what I should look to buy).
I'm looking for an over the ears pair of headphones as this is more comfortable for me then in-ears. I just bought a pair of Brainwavz HM5 (preordered) so would be looking for something to complement them. I was thinking of maybe a pair of Denon ADH-2000's. I tend to like a slight emphasis in the bass and a warm sound signature. Any other ideas?
From your descriptions, it sounds like the D2000 will fit you perfectly. Go for it!
I was checking out the gr07's for sure, any suggestions for dac/amps portable or desktop? Also Any input on the AKG Q701's? Some say they're not the greatest for metal/rock but I hear it does it better with a good amp. I was also looking at an hd600 (maybe hd650 if I feel like blowing the load). Another thing I was checking were beyerdynamics or ultrasones... I love beyerdynamic's custom options... haha
Well, the IEMs at least don't really need an amp, as they scale minimally. If you read the Q701 appreciation thread, I think someone mentioned listening to metal on his, so maybe ask him? I think the Sennheisers might be a bit dark for metal, as they lack a bit of treble energy, esp. when underamped. The Beyers might be more trebly though. Regarding amps, I think some people have had success with an E10/Q701 combo.
I have been thinking of buying some Sennheiser HD 25-1 mkII's. I have read the extensive thread already on this forum and they seem to please just about everyone. Comfort aside. They seem rugged enough to throw in my bag (for they will be used on the go), uber light and nice and discreet whilst tooling along.
I would have liked to audition them but don't have any dealers near me. However I did get a chance to listen to the HD 25-1 SP versions and they blew me away they were so good.
Would I be right in assuming that the MKII's would be even better...?
I am currently listening to some AKG 480's which can get a bit boomy at high volumes. They are quite new so I can flog them and get some money back.
I will be using them with an ipod 5th gen through a Neco Soundlab V3 headphone amp. So they will have plenty of drive.
Best price I've found on line is £128.
Thanks in advance, Thing.
By all accounts, the MKII is a lot better than the SP, so you should be impressed. That price seems like the best you'll find in the UK.
