The only reason I have decided to sell them is that i prefer the clarity of the dt880s. The D2000 won't blast your head off with bass, but with my fiio e7 they could rattle my earlobes whenever I listened to dubstep :P

 

On that note: I'm in the market for looking for a new pair of cans. My obvious choice is the DT880s 600 ohm but this wouldn't be any fun if I didn't have a bunch of cans to pick from. I was looking at the AKG Q701 since they are new to me from the last time I bought a pair of cans. Budget is around $200ish. What I look for in headphones is clarity but mostly in vocals since I listen to a lot of female vocalists and orchestras like Two Steps From Hell, Thomas Bergersen, X-ray dog, ect.

I really enjoyed the detail and clarity on the Shure SRH940s that I used to own. Might as well add those to your list of choices.

What would be the best choice from these:

 

HD201

HD202

HD205 MK-II

CX300-II Precision

UE100

UE200

UE350

Koss UR40T

Koss The Plug

 

I'm looking for a neutral signature, durability and isolation.

 

Thanks. :)

HD201 is neutral HD202 is bassy and muddy HD205 bassy CX300 bassy and muddy UE100 decent but has a high end spike scratch that i think all UE are tuned for slightly more treble..... Koss IDK :P what about chinese brands like soundmagic? or meelec? or monoprice?

post #16639 of 29490

I've been looking around the net and the general consensus seems to be that the HD201 is pretty bad, any idea why that is?

 

Till now I thought the HD205 was the best.

 

Btw haven't heard of those Chinese brands. :p

not if you want neutral...... atm im using a pair of Soundmagic PL20 and they are really neutral with slight bass roll off

post #16641 of 29490

Hmm, will see if I can find them here.

 

Btw, the UR40T apparently has the KSC-75 driver, and I've read about how neutral these are. How do they compare to the rest?

 EDIT: Also for a bit more of info on what I'm looking for. I will be using these headphones in a room by myself. I'm not looking to travel with them but I would like them to be able to be worn for extended periods of time. Look doesn't really matter to me. Also open or close I have no pref. Easily driveable cans are also a plus. Thanks again!

 



Anyone? I need to make a choice soon so I can buy them. Thank you!

post #16643 of 29490

Okay I decided to buy online instead of buying from a store and I thought I'd ask for a recommendation again since I have much more options now.

 

I can spend up to $62 and am looking for either over ear headphones or IEMs with as neutral a signature as possible. I'm looking for durability, sound quality and comfort.

 

Till now, I had my mind set on the Koss UR40s, but is there anything better for my budget?

 

I really appreciate the help. I'm a total newbie to all this. Thanks. :)

post #16644 of 29490

Well, good thing my post was ignored, I made up my mind and I'm gonna save up more for better choices.

 

Which do you prefer, senn hd598's or ath pro700 mk2's?

Sennheiser HD598 definitely.

New Head-Fi'er here. I'm looking for a good around the ear headphone for indie rock, acoustic rock, classic rock, classic, jazz, blues. I mostly stay away from rap, and electronic. I will be using these at first with my Xonar STX, and then eventually possibly a desktop and/or portable amp.    Build quality is a essential. I'm not a "basshead" but a good bottom end is essential. My budget is <$500 for the phones.

 

I'm currently considering HiFiMan HE-400's, or possibly DT990's. What else can you recommend for me?

 

Thanks in advance!

I just got the HE-500s and they're amazing.  I've never heard the HE-400s, but my understanding is that they're a little bassier.  You might also want to listen to the HD650 to see if the midbass hump is the sweet spot for you bass-wise.

Got my ASUS Xonar Essence STX sound card

Got my Beyerdynamic Pro DT 770 (250ohm) headphones

 

Is there specific settings I should enable? Or just plug the headphones in and listen?

 

Can someone with the sound card+beyerdynamic headphones let me know any tweaking?

 

Thanks!

You can always upgrade the OPAMPs.  Also, not too terribly sure about its built in "headphone amp."  The Beyer isn't exactly an easy phone to drive.  I heard one on a guy's FIIO E7 and it wasn't nearly enough to power it.  Anyway, a dedicated headphone amp would probably be a good idea.

How would I go about upgraded the "OPAMP" - I don't really know much about this type of stuff heh.
