Taking into consideration that I will be listening mostly to Spotify on my laptop through a FiiO E10, and then question is; would it be overkill to buy the Denon (hence the sound is only as good as the source)?


Not many have heard them yet.  However, a couple of members has posted reviews:

There is also a long appreciation thread on them that you can search for and check out.

Thanks... people seem to like them.

 

But I still fell they might be overkill and that I should get one of these instead:

 

  • Ultrasone PRO 750 (€ 244)
  • Audio Technica ATH-M50 (€ 145)
  • AKG K550 (€ 196)

 

As they are much more within my actual budget range.

I was secretly hoping that you would have said it would be overkill, so I could have bought a set of cans in the sub-$200 category happy_face1.gif

people say it goes overboard cause they aren't used to that much bass. i have dt 1350s . if i would someone listen to the bass of audiophile prefers they will be thats enough bass or too much bass. if i let a bass head use them they would say the bass is nonexistent. it all comes to preference

OK, everyone, here is my situation:

Currently own:  AKG K701 + Sennheiser HD650.   Using my high-end Onkyo reciever as headphone amp (and its headphone out is very capable, it can drive even the Hifiman HE6s well).    

I alternate between the two headphones depending on what style of music I am listening to (701 for classical/acoustic/jazz/experimental, HD650 for rap, electronic, rock, basically anything bass heavy).

I am not happy with either headphone:  I mourn the lack of bass impact on the K701, but mourn the HD650's dearth of soundstage, imaging, and top-end clarity that are the K701's strengths.   

- Thusly I am in the process of determining a suitable headphone upgrade that combines the strengths of both of these headphones.  I am leaning (heavily) towards the Beyerdynamics T1.    

 

-Also considering the Hifiman HE500, but, from what I understand, their soundstage will not be as good as the T1.   Is this true???     

 

- Audeze are out of the question (can't afford the LCD3, and the LCD2 do not have the wide open soundstage that I like about the K701s.  Furthermore, I am not interested in leather earpads; I prefer velour)

 

-Sennheiser HD800 don't have the bass that I love about the HD650s, thus they are out of the question.   HD 700 don't seem to offer comparable bass performance either. 

 

-Grados are out of the question (I find them overpriced, especially their higher-end models)

-Not interested in Audio-Technica or Denon

 

To reiterate:   are the Beyerdynamic T1 my solution headphone - my ideal replacement for both the 701s AND the HD650s?   Or are the Hifiman 500's also a worthy alternative, despite their smaller soundstage?    I would also consider the Hifiman HE6's, but I will buying used, and I have not seen too many used HE6's for sale.   

Edit:  would it be a sin to repost this somewhere on the Summit-Fi board, since it seems that I am mainly considering Summit-fi grade headphones here?   If I do not get enough helpful responses on this thread I will repost this on that board.

Although I really enjoy my HD 205's sound-wise, I am looking for a new pair of cans in the ~100-150€ price range because the HD 205's are getting uncomfortable after a quite short period of time.

 

My taste in music mainly consists of electronic music and a few of my favourite Artists are Justice, Daft Punk, Gorillaz, Pendulum, Netsky etc. but I listen to almost anything if it's good. 

I'm also using a pair of AKG K328 and a FiiO E6 + lod and I have been looking into buying AKG K242 HD's but I read that the bass is kind-of 'muddy', do you have any better suggestions for Over-ear headphones? 

 

Thanks in advance!

no one?

Guys.....Ultrasone PRO 750 or Beyerdynamic DT770 80 Ohm both with Fiio E11? How is the bass, clarity and soundstage on both?
