You'll probably get a better response with your own individual thread for such a specific question.
That said, I've read good things about the K701/2 pairing with the E9.
I think I've decided to purchase new headphones in the form of Beyerdynamic DT990/600s. Unfortunately I'm completely inexperienced with purchasing DACs/amps and I was wondering if the Zero DAC and Little Dot MK iii would be an affordable DAC/amp combo. I was wondering how that setup would sound/if there are any other DAC/amp combos in the same price range that would be preferable. Thanks!
The DT series sound good coming out of tubes. Personally, I prefer the sound of the Bottlehead Crack over the LDmk3 with the Beyers.
Go with a spreadsheet, with columns to give rankings for various areas like sound and comfort and price, etc.
ATH-M50 or Ultrasone DJ1? I'm wondering which is better for trance, techno, hip-hop, house. I think the m50's look better and that does make a difference to me but I want lots of bass, but quality bass. I will also be buying the Fiio E5 portable amp with one of these phones.
Go with the Ultrasone, paint it if you don't like the colour scheme.
I probably just lost my 6yo AKG K301 XTRA (do you happen to have a "tech support" section on the site? I didn't see it :) )
- I'd like to use my next hp (no headset) on my pc mainly for gaming\movies\music (all type, mainly from movies), so a balanced product would be ideal.
- Price range max 150$ (100€).
- Other key aspects: comfortable, durable.
- Open\closed: semi-open (like the k301)? If I'm not wrong, the semi-open design is rarely used. Why is that? Anyway I don't like to be completely isolated, and on the other hand I wouldn't like the outside noise to kill my enjoyment.
Thx in advance
PS: - I'd skip positional audio for the drawbacks It brings, I'll kick asses in FPSs anyway :D
PS2: - I have a Realtek 8111C (ALC888 8-channel audio codec) integrated sc..do you think I need a dedicated sound card?
There's the AKG K240, or maybe the new upcoming 550. Senn 558/598 is also popular.
Thanks for the Help :-)
but still I really dont know what to choose :-(
Or should I just put 20 more bucks in and get the HD 25
Also I wanted to say I will mostly use them with my iTouch and PC without amp and outside/on the bus quite often so isolation is important (and I hate hate hate active noise cancellation) I did try the Bose quiet comfort 15 and hated them :( they did not impress me with the SQ at all and put an awful pression on my ear that I really cannot stand (but god they are comfyyy :3 )
So I think I might just go for the m50 when I can get them at a lower price (any help on that would be great) :P
But im still really really not sure about this :*(
Thank you :D
Do not buy Grados in Canada; the price hike is ridiculous. Go with Alessandro instead. Actually, forget about that. Both have terrible isolation and are utterly not suitable for a bus. The HD25-1-ii are excellent portables and isolate very well, so go with that instead (and they sound better than the M50 anyways).
