The Complete List of "Audiophile" Headphones

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

My objective with this thread is to create a a list for the newer members that details the "full name" and price of all of the headphones targeted at a more head-fi like audience (so well skip the cheap / no name headphones that are just that for a reason). When i first made my way over here to check out headphones, I found that it was exceptionally confusing to see people referencing letters and numbers without brand names or referencing letters and number referencing both headphones and amps in the same post, so if I could get some cooperation to create this list, I think a lot of newer members might appreciate it. Here's my initial list off the top of my head:

Audio Technica AD700

I think you missed a few and added in some non AP headphones, *HD438 and not 448, no KSC75*

Have you seen the contents of the Head Gear link yet? That's the whole purpose of that section. smily_headphones1.gif

I'm sure I've missed plenty, i was hoping people would help me by listing headphones that should or shouldnt be on the list. the 201/202/212 for example, shouldnt. And the gear section is rather confusing to browse, i figured a clean list that doesnt mix in iems might be more practical.

No AKGs? No JVCs? There are so many lists these days.


It would be more practical to rank headphones under their general purpose and then to rank them from inexpensive to expensive. Provide the specifications and you have a good basis for a database...

I'll add some AKGs, this is just the first step, hopefully I could load this all into a searchable database file.

Beware, you could end up with large collection of headphones. This hobby can become addictive...

Not following, yes, you can, but the list doesnt affect that, its just a convienent reference for the newbies.
