I do like my Fiio E11.

I meant FiiO E1, this iPod powered amp with remote. I'm not sure if its enough for my earphones (CX300-II)?

Hey again,

 

What should I get.... The Pro 750 new, or the Pro 900 used. Is the Pro 900 really 100 dollars better than the 750s?

HD598 is stellar with like Sigur Ros.

O yea and something that I dont need to buy a 300 dollar amp to drive!

Looking for a pair of headphones for the girlfriend's birthday. I'm located in Canada, but I'm near the border so online shopping is doable.

 

 

 

Budget: $50-150. I know it's a broad range, but she's not an audiophile and whatever is the best bang for the buck would do just fine for her. Made a budget for her birthday and if I go under, I can always grab her some extra goodies.
Genre: Mainly rock/indie music (Radiohead, Coldplay, Arcade Fire, etc.)
Sound signature: Not too sure tbh.

Usage: She'll be using them with her iPod touch, no amp. Mainly to and from school/work, sometimes at home. Portable is a big bonus, however, she does want cans.
Open/Closed: Definitely closed; the bus isn't too conducive to open headphones.

 

Thanks!

So out of those two, what would you suggest? I listen to mostly rap. Also concerning one of the original questions, is the difference between these two and my DJ1 Pros enough to disappoint the average person? 

 


I haven't heard the DJ1--so can't help there.

 

I have the M50s and the 840.  The 840 is the more accurate and better can.  It comes with a removable cord and is very comfortable.

AKG Q 701 (clarity and sound stage) or D5000--probably open box (better bass and more punch in all frequencies).

post #14067 of 29490

Would a Fiio E11 drive a Beyer DT990 250 ohms? i know it sounds like a dumb question but you never know tongue_smile.gif. And if it cant can you guys recommend a amp that will? Also what is the point of going higher in ohms?

Will either of these benefit from an amp? Say an o2 or e11?

Both do fine without an amp, but may benefit some with one.  I don't have any experience with the ones you listed.

I'm looking for headphones that have great isolation (non leakage), that are bass and mids focused. So, strong bass and forward mids. I also want good soundstage, clear sound, and good comfort. My budget is $300, and I don't want an amp. Does such a headphone exist? I was thinking about the AKG K550's.
