I'll go ahead and add V-Moda M-80 to the list for a great portable all-rounder.
Can anyone vouch for the HE-500/300s as being genre-versatile headphones?
i'm sorry for bringing this comment from half a year ago up. but i disagree. Jude uses ipod's for portable setups and they do well. The pre 2007 one;s all use a Wolfson DAC. current gerneation ipods and ios devices use Cirrus Logic DAC. my ipod touch 2G has an Cirrus Logic CS4398 that is used in the MSRB $100 Asus Xonar DX. Asus has been known for lower prices than comp. so this is like $120(MSRB) for other dedicated cards. pair the idevice with a LOD and a good amp...and voila.
thank you :) I do hear some distortion and really weird "artifacts" in my music sometimes when listening straight from the headphone out. But it's not horrible. and like i always say. add in a cheap $40 set of FiiO L9 and E6(or E11 for $70) and you got yourself the best price to performance pod on Earth. The ipod can just push my 44Ohm SRH440's. My FiiO E5 brokeded(my fault). I found an ingenious way though to listen to music :)
They are Logitech Z623's. They usually amplify the speakers and sub @ 200W and 400W max. But of course. it amplifies at a lot less through the headphone out port. It seems to amplify there @ 300mW @ 16 Ohms since it seems about double what my E5 could do. So far, i'm not hearing any bad "artifacts" pops, inconsistency's and everything (to an extent)
I wish I found this thread before I dropped my money on my DT 990 pro, they are excellent for most genres but too tiring when listening to blues and jazz, but for those I just got a pair of Micro seiki mx5, these are excellent neutral electrets, I think were made by Stax.
How do the D7Ks compare with both of them? Sorry for all the questions, but I've been seriously considering getting a D7000 in the future and I've always toyed with the idea of the some modded T50RPs. Thanks in advance :)
