post #8341 of 29490

There's a lot of us around here... wink.gif

 

As far as woods go it's really all up to you. I've heard a few different ones and didn't prefer one over the other. It's more about the way it's shaped and the material used to secure the drivers. There are quite a few well known names in the custom cups game. Lawton being the biggest one. 

 

Just pick the one you think looks the best honestly. At least I didn't hear a difference.

Ps brony ftw



The E9 does not have a DAC. The E7 is the only way to get a DAC from the pair.

 

EDIT: To clarify the E9 is only an amp.

Both the E7 and E9 have DAC.  You can dock the E7 in the E9, but I don't fully understand the benefit of having both of them.  

 

Many thanks for your help!smily_headphones1.gif

I think in gonna go with the Denon ah d7000 with all the praise it got, you think it can run in the fiio e7?

post #8343 of 29490

Many thanks Morbid.  Why would I want to buy both the E9 and E7?  Couldn't I just buy the E7 and plug that into my laptop?

Audio Technica AD700

Sennheiser HD555

 

Sony Z1000

Shure 940

Denon 2000

 

Are you looking for a portable or home amp? dac or not?



Interesting, do you know how it compares (besides price difference) to either the ATH-M30 or JVC HARX900?

What should I look to for headphone amps?  I'm looking at the E7 and E9.  I do not understand why I need to dock them though.  Is the E7 not a stand-alone device?  I use a laptop with a bad soundcard.

 


Before you drop the big bucks, consider trying out the budget offerings to get a taste of the sound signatures. The Grado SR60 (or Alessandro MS1 if you're outside the US) and Senn HD555 would be good starting points.

 

The e9 is a standalone amp, the e7 is a combo dac/amp, though its amp isn't nearly as strong as the e9. They can dock together so the e9 can use the e7's dac.

If you have a good card with a built in amp, then an external amp may not be required.

Also for consideration would be some customs... these were the first two that came to mind:

Yes, you can use just the E7 plugged into your usb.  Using them together just give you more juice and maybe some control that one or the other doesn't have.  It's not necessary though.

many thanks again, I appreciate it!

post #8348 of 29490

I would recommend looking into the E9 once you get your D7000. They benefit a lot from more power and the E9 on high gain is actually a very good pair for them.

Thanks anyway! I'll look more at the v6s

 

If anyone knows how the v6s compare to ATH-M30 or HARX700/900, if I could get some input on that I'd greatly appreciate it. I've read about them all separately, and everyone seems to have good things to say about each (within the limitations of each, of course.)

Armaegis, Sailormain. Thanks for helping. Just few more questions. I'm afraid there would be not enough base in ad700 to satisfy my ears. But from what I've heard, This set would be ideal for Dolby3D. From the other hand HD555 would be reat choice, just how will they perform in dolby3D? Does it mean good for gaming positioning=good in dolby3D ?

post #8354 of 29490

They do work pretty well. The HD 5xx series are very effective gaming headphones. I actually prefer the 598 with simulated surround sound to the AD700.

How do the high end Beyer headphones compare with Sennheiser and Grado models?  I noticed they are closed.
