HD 800s have to make it to the list. Also a treble head here with with (slightly) basshead headphones.

Well, here's the catch. Treble is not a characteristic that necessarily includes high detail resolution, nor does it necessarily describe an analytical sound.

I never tought of the TF10 and the V6 as phones for treble heads, they dont have oxagerated treble do they?

 

and how about sime grados, like the SR325?

The Sony V6 has a slight treble bias.  It can be debated if that slight bias is enough to make it a treblehead headphone.

 

The John Grado headphones are treblehead headphones.  All of them have some flavor of treble bump.  The old Joe Grado headphones are more neutral or balanced.

My EQ settings on my SR60. 

 

I think I'm a treblehead.

I'm proud to be a member of this club.

Nominations for the list: Audio Technica AD1000, Grado GS1000i, Alessandro MS2.....hrmmmm....what else?

post #23 of 157

oh MS2~

Anybody tried the Denon HP700? it sounds very bright and the treble is one of the best I've tried, very detailed and prominent without being piercing, but I'm not sure if call it treblehead, unless someone agrees

The Audio-Technica ATH-AD700 is unquestionably a treblehead can, given that the highs are emphasized. I'm surprised it's not in the list already.

 

Now, to figure out whether the Stax Lambda lineup in general better fits neutral/balanced or treblehead...

 

(And before you ask, no, I'm not a treblehead. I just seem to have experienced mostly treblehead cans so far in my quest for clear, detailed sound.)

Me? A closet basshead? Never! biggrin.gif

I've had bassy IEMs because I'm too cheap to find a better suited one (although I did have a pair of Mee M6 that were definitely bright until they broke on me), and trebleheaded cans because they fit my tastes. V6 and SR125i are definitely not for the bassheads.

Grado's ftw.

How can I forget the Ultrasone Edition 10? Surely the brightest headphone I have

It has one of the flattest FR's in an IEM I've ever seen!!
 

I guess flat = treble, since MDR-V6 is on the list here too.
