Well both HE-400 and HE-500 is an excellent headphones, they got their own unique sound. With your music choice and amp/ dac budget you should go with the HE-400 because of it's efficiencies, but if you can get the Dacport or even Dacport+Asgard then you should get the HE-500 it would give you more neutral sound compared to the HE-400


what about the asgard & odac combo you recommended earlier, how would that pair up with the HE-500? the more i read about it the more i think i would like to pursue that route.

I recommend that you find a place that carries HiFiMan and listen to both.  My read is that you don't have a great deal of experience in this neighborhood.  Especially in such circumstances, there is no substitute for some ear time with the cans you are considering.

Can't help you with the DAC, but the Asgard represents the minimum level of amps that are powerful enough to drive the HE 500.

If I'm at the minimum level is the performance going to suffer at all or is the Asgard adequate at powering the HE-500? I have no idea where I could test them out though. Ive a pair of Ety ER-4P in ear that are decent but don't have much of a wow factor. Parents have QC2 Bose headphones that are "meh" at best. Just want a one and done high quality purchase. Thanks.

Can anyone recommend me a place where i can buy a pair of Fostex T50RP and Shure 840 replacement pads in Europe?

post #21694 of 29490

Hey guys, can anyone recommend a choice between the Philips Fidelio L1, the Mad Dogs, and HE-400's for listening to mainstream pop, rock, hip hop and Rnb?

 

I think I prefer the soundstage of open headphones, but I've heard great things about the natural sound of Mad Dogs, and didn't want to rule them out too early. Which of these phones would have a warm "fun" sound together with a bit of bass kick?

 

EDIT: Currently have the E17's to drive

I am really getting interested by the DAC called "Musiland Monitor 01 US".

 

I'm not sure if i can plug this into my HDTV on the optical port and then get the sound of the TV to my headphones (would be great to have confirmation on that since i will be watching alot of movies.). Also i need to know if it will be a good DAC for the AKG Q701, i really want to get the best out of these. I will also be amping these with the Fiio E11, im not even sure if that little DAC is also an amp.

If you have any other recommandations for cheap DAC i could use i would be happy to hear them.

 

Thank you

I currently have the KSC75's and the JVC S400's.  I absolutely love the Koss sound signature and think I prefer open headphones in general (though the JVC's are incredible for what they are).  I'm looking to graduate to an entry level head-fi recommended can that is open and represents mids and highs very well.  The obvious choice would be Grado's, but I also love a large soundstage and I know Grado's are more up-close.  I was wondering if anyone had any other recommendations in the 100-150 dollar range that DO have a larger soundstage but also good detail in the mids and highs.

 

Rock, Jazz, Blues, Classical.  These are the genres I want to enjoy.

 

I do this thing where I start researching headphones, opening new tabs for new ideas.  I've had to close Chrome 3 times because I had 25+ tabs open and realized I had gotten nowhere.  Is this one of those "you need to simply pull the trigger and find out" moments?

Nice products but the only problem is that they don't seem to be able to connect to tv through optical.

 

I have a question for everyone now, can i connect a potable DAC like the "HRT Music Streamer II" to my TV through the USB port? The TV i own is a TC-P50ST50.

I've been looking for some stylish, efficient, portable headphones and I found Noontec Zoro, which has been widely praised in comparisons with Beats by Dr Dre. I'm really interested in buying them, but there's not much about the bass. Does anyone know if the bass is good enough for dubstep, electronic and pop music? Thank You in advance- Im very confused cause it seems like there are 2 groups of people- those who praise the bass and those who say its lacking.

Save up a few extra dollars and get
DT880 (brighter highs)
Q701
Hd598 (darker highs)

You will thank yourself for spending the extra bucks down the road.

Does the USB port on your TV produce digitized audio?

Hope this is the right place.

 

Looking for:

Closed circumaural headphones under $75 with good sound, isolation and comfort.  Do these exist?

Is there very good cheap DAC that i can connect to my TV with the optical cable to the DAC and from the DAC to my Headphones?

I think this would be the only way to get my headphones on my TV.

 

Thanks
