post #13846 of 29490

I'm looking for a lush, nice looking wooden headphone to pair up for different mood of listening with my HD800. Especially for vocal, or solo instrument such as woodwind or strings.

 

Up my head there are 3 phones Denon AH-D7000, ATH W3000ANV and Fostex AH900 (I hope I remember these models correctly) Base on the outlook alone I choose W3000, and I would love to hear your other recommendations as well.

 

Thank you.

Still at it, huh? Might I suggest, since you expressed interest in the V-Modas, to just wait until the M-80s bigger brother, the M-100, drops. Same sexy design, legendary M-80 sound signature, semi-open, huge sound stage(reportedly), and great bass.

Do you think the Sony MDR-V6s will be a problem then with female vocals?

Hey peeps,

 

I have no clue what headphone amp I should get for my Ultrasone HFI 2400. I want ZERO distortion throughout the spectrum, and am willing to spend a maximum of 60 dollars. I have been thinking about the JDSLabs Cmoybb v2.03 and the Fiio E11..... Any other recommendations?

So you can switch depending on what your listening to.

It only cost $18-$20 each to add velour ear pads, those same pads would cost $40-$50 each in the USA.

The shipper/seller Thomann charges a straight $40, so the more you order, it spreads the $40 shipping charge over more items.

I order $245 worth of stuff from Thomann last month and the same stuff would have cost me $360 in the USA.

IME, the HD681 is much more bassy than HD660. I find the bass on HD660 is only sufficient, HD660 is all about mid, it has forward, smooth midrange that sound "real".


I should have said HD681F,

I had to guess on the HD681F sound from others reviews.

Just registered to ask for a recommendation

 

Budget: $150
Genre: Rock, New Age, Jpop/Anime
Sound signature: I like bass.  Probably along the line of moderate/heavy
Usage: Mostly gaming.  I'd like a well-balanced headset that won't crap out on music, though.
Open/Closed: I heard that open headphones have a larger soundstage.  Noise isn't really a problem, since I live alone.
Previous Cans: Plantronics GameCom 377 (feel free to laugh)

 

Audio-Technica ATH-M50

Do you think I should get the K240s or the M50s? I listen to country music so I think I'd take the better mids of the K240s than the bass of the M50s (plus the K240s are cheaper), but it's semi-open so I don't know if that'll be a problem. I'd also be using it with my laptop/iPod so I don't know if an amp will be needed with the K240s.

Hey everyone,

 

I'm new to head-fi. I'm in the market for some new headphones and I've been looking at the Denon D2000 and the NC800. I haven't been able to find a good comparison of the two so I'm hoping someone here can give me a hand. I'll be using them in the office (a startup so one big room and we're all on desks) and on the train. I would like something with decent insolation since I don't want to be bothered by ppl talking around me, and at the same time, I don't want my music to be bothering others. I'm coming from Bose in-ear earphones so I sure both of these would be great! I just don't want to sacrifice to much sound quality (d2000) for noise cancellation (nc800), but at the same time i want to have enough isolation for my needs.

 

Thanks!

Matt

The Samson SR850 (Made by Superlux) a Chinese knock off of the AKG K240, is even cheaper.

In the U.S. you can get the first two new in that price range.

 

The third--AT 900x--is both the most expensive and the poorest choice of the 3.  Based on have the A900 and reading how the "x" compares, these cans are OK, but are the most soulless cans in my collection.

 

Get the Q 701 if you like clarity and sound stage.  It's weak point is just OK bass--but better than the K 70x cans.

 

Get the D2000 if you like bass/sub bass wrapped in a warm dark sound with slightly recessed mids.
