I want another headphone - pre-amp combo that has more bass, closed headphones, and a richer, full sound.

 

I suspect the D7000 might fit the bill, except maybe in isolation. 

MLE?

Yup, that sounds like the D7000, but I dunno if he's willing to spend that much.

The sound doesn't leak out too badly, but it's not that great at keeping external noise out.

I hear the D5000 gets most of the way there, not sure where you can find one now though.

I'd never buy unathorized, and I'm willing to bet they're probably D2000s with D7000 cups, or something.

No kidding. I certainly wouldn't spend that much in hopes of it being legit.

Hey Mad Lust,

 

I have read your guide and it helped me a lot. But I am in a bit of a dilemma on what to buy. What I would like to know is which headphone is the closest in sound quality compared to the Senn PC 360? Is it close to the 518 or 558. Or is it worse than both? 

 

Would be really great if you could enlighten me beyersmile.png

 

Thanks!

I'm sorry I haven't tried either of those, but I did try the HD598. The PC360 is close to the HD598 (I'd say 90% there), but not as detailed, and is slightly better balanced (very balanced presentation, while the HD598 is mid-centric.)

If anything, it should compare to the HD558 as the HD558 is supposedly a warmer, less detailed variation of the HD598.

Quick safety tip for when shopping online. The images at the bottom for McAfee and VeriSign should link you to their respective websites when clicked. Those don't, so I'd steer clear.

The Foster equipped Denons were built in China.

That's the same site (or layout at least) that I saw the HE400 selling for redonkulous-cheap! Immediate warning bells that one seller goes so far out of line on price, and Axel... uh... Cloris' point about the security links going nowhere. Though I know it would be very easy for a fraudster to link to a legit site, so don't think you can 100% trust a site even if their pictures are linked correctly. That this site can't even muster up the ability to do basic website building techniques is just ::LOL::
