Soundstage in closed cans?....

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

IS there any closed can that have a very large soundstage?... or i have to get open ones?...

 

also, are there any headphones that have soundstage, and very detailed sund, but do not need very hard amplification?...

Yes- Of what I've heard, closed headphones with large/detailed soundstage are Ultrasone Ed 8 > Denon D7000 > D5000 > Beyer DT770.  With the latter on par with an open headphone with a good soundstage, like HD600.  D5000 (and I imagine D2000) do well without much amplification and have good detail.  The Ultrasones are even better in those departments, but are crazy expensive.

I DO not know what to say... d2000 would run me 400$... this is much or not so much compared to other countries? (i live in europe - romania)

I largely agree.

 

I haven't spent enough time with Denons to make a definitive statement about them, but my (short) audition of the D7000 left a very good impression.


The large cups of the full-sized Beyers lend themselves well to a large soundstage.  I've always liked them in that regard... and they're damn comfortable!

 

The Edition 8 is my new toy.  An absolute show-stopper overall with an impressively large soundstage for such small cups.  The use of this space is also astounding as their imaging/instrument placement is absolutely second-to-none of what I've heard.  I would put the actual soundstage size, however, on par with the aforementioned Beyers.  I would not go so far as to say that any are on par with the HD600, however.

What about the Ultrasone Pro 900? Significantly less expensive than Ed. 8 and D7000, has an updated driver displacement method compared to Ed. 8, and they're german cans, along with Senns, Beyers and AKGs :)

Could wait for AKG's new 'open sound in a closed headphone' they're coming out with soon...

anything but not akg.... thank you for understanding.... i had the worst experience with them....

 

so... the cheapest closed can with soundstage is either denon d2000 or beyedynamic dt 770.....

 

beyedynamic are somewhere around 230$,,,,, this is like the cheapest option... but with the mentioned 80 ohm ipedance, they do need an amplifier....

Denon D1100 is very good in this respect for a closed can.
