[review/comparison] Beyerdynamic DT1350, T50p, Sennheiser HD25-1-ii, HD25-13-ii, Pioneer... - Page 14

post #196 of 440

hello guys,
I would sell my Sennheiser HD25 1-2.
I used them only for 10 hours, but I can't do it in the market section of the site.
Why?

post #197 of 440

Most likely because you're under the post restriction. If I remember correctly, you have to post a certain number of messages before you can post in the selling section.

I found that stash tin on ebay, however it would ship from Korea...

 

Your little amp looks amazing, I wish I could do that kind of DIY. I'm thinking about getting a cMoy for my HD 238s but I don't know how much they will benefit from the amp.

If you would like to see the internals of it Armaegis has pictures of it while it was being built in a DIY folder found HERE. The tin itself I found it at a small shop in my city and I'm sure you could find it online if you Googled it. eBay might be a good place to start I know they have tons of stash tins for sale on there of various different types.



If anyone is interested, the HDJ-2000s are on Amazon for $224, with an extra 10% off, it's a great deal.

Thanks for the compliment friend but I didn't make that amp Armaegis did.

Many thanks Armaegis for your very in depth review.

Thanks for taking the time to cover a lot of pro and cons of each headphone .

It has created a good "buyers guide" for people.

Well done.

There's no question that the HD25-1 II is a great all around choice for portables.  You get excellent sound quality, but still a bit fun, with exceptional build quality, relatively decent comfort (once you get them adjusted right), and the choice of velours and pleather pads to tweak the sound how you like it.

Absolutely. The HD25 has a good sound that should appeal to most people unless you're looking specifically for mid-driven orchestral soundstage stuff. My only gripe is the comfort, as supraaurals with glasses are typically uncomfortable for me, and the HD25 is no exception to this.

ok thanks you guys for the help! really appreciate your replies! :D

The XB700 is a bit overwhelming (and XB500 even moreso as it has less control). The Ultrasones hit more on the outer edges of the ear so it's a more visceral feeling rather than simply volume. The DT770pro has an excellent bass response though doesn't quite reach into the 30-40Hz range as cleanly as the others. The DT990 is just louder but not as clean to my ears.

 

For you, just be patient and wait for the Pro900 to go on sale; just a couple weeks ago it was down to $320.

 



idk why but the DT770's remind me of the M50's but they still sounded quite different. I haven't heard them amped properly, but the M50's were a bit better, and so are the HD25's, but amped it will probably improve. I liked the bass I thought it reached pretty low, but not an emphasis on the sub bass.

Of course if I remember correctly XD

I felt the bass response in the DT770pro80 was much better than the M50.

 

In general, I like the bass response from circumaural cans more than supraaural. I think it's mostly because the pressure reaches my entire ear and gives me that visceral feeling which I like, even if the supraaural cans have better technical chops. Granted sometimes I feel the circumaural bass can be too much, whereas I almost never get that with supraaurals... with the notable exception of the Beats Solo which was a travesty to my ears and psyche alike.

 

Supraaurals I find generally provide a better punch than the circumaurals; more pressure directly into the ear rather than around the ear. The psychosomatic effect of pressure from the pads sitting on my ears also affects how I perceive sound. It all comes down the personal taste I guess.
