Hahah, im not sure about that. A black braid would look good.

 


Are you sure your looking at my picture?

 



I'm sure, I don't like the green, or the cream color really.. I'm thinking a darker cream color and brown leather. The green just looks yucky (unless my monitor is messed up)

But all that matters in the end is comfort and sound quality.


I like the lambda's!

agreed, although I think maybe a darker cream would be tolerable :)




Then again, I like the hd598s.. lol

I definitely see my final 'end game' rack including a great graphic EQ with a through put as well. So many people here are against EQ, but a quality hardware EQ can work wonders.


The SR-007 and SR-009 are some sleek cans to be sure, and the performance apparently backs that up, too...but my wallet can barely accommodate a Lambda setup as it is.

 

As for EQs, do you have any particular hardware ones in mind? It's not a field I've looked into much since my X-Fi Titanium HD already has a capable one right in its DSP, but a hardware EQ with physical controls I could adjust on-the-fly with ease (no having to bring the driver console up) would be really nice down the line, once I'm set with the headphones and amp.

I can't say I ever liked their appearance, but the sound and the comfort...those two things are too good for me to do without. I have to have a Lambda of some sort around from this point on, maybe unless I suddenly find myself several times richer and can afford to step up to the Omega offshoots as a result.

I haven't looked too far yet, but my best choice at a good price so far seems like one of Rane's offerings. They make top notch gear (I used quite a bit of it when I was DJing) and most of their EQs have a pass through option as well.

Doesn't need to break the bank, but as long as I don't hear any imperfections caused by the EQ it'll do me just fine. I'll probably order from Guitar Center (30 day no questions returns) and give it a shot close to the end of next year (gotta get my entire rack together first).

Agreed. The Omega is a beautiful electrostat. My vote still goes to the HiFiMan HE-5. I don't know what it was about the wood that I loved so much.

Probably a bit different than others here:

 

A NOS/perfect condition Koss ESP/10 + E/10 system (no damage to the wood, proper headband, no foam rot, etc) with D2000 lambskin pads and a fat amplifier to push it.

 

Doubt that'll ever happen, so I'll probably settle for something else. ESP-950 looks tempting at times.

I love my D2000's, so I'm assuming I'll say my *current* dream pair would be the D7000's. :P

post #98 of 119
My dream pair would be the LCD 2s I've heard them in a meetup and have not been able to get them out of my head. I also heard the Stax 007 and HD 800 and the LCD 2s where definitely my cup of tea. I wish I could afford them, but hey I put my my monitor up in the FS section, its worth about 700 used so maybe someone will trade me haha.
post #99 of 119

If the HD700 is really and is a mix of the Hd600/650/800, then that might be my dream headphone.

post #100 of 119

Hmmm. Haven't heard a ton but I think I know.

 

D7000 or LCD3. 

 

I would like to hear a few others though, Ultrasone Pro 2900, Ultrasone Signature Pro, Shure 1840.

 

One day, I would like to find the perfect EDM 'phone.

post #101 of 119

The D7000 is a good one...Not too revealing, easy to power, great sound...Super comfy, scales well...

How would you compare your LCD-2 and D7000? Those are my two endgame headphones basically, probably going to get them when I start college.

post #103 of 119

Soundstage is roughly the same. The D7000 definitely has more bass emphasis, but you'll find more texture and depth from the LCD 2. 

 

The LCD 2 give a general jump in clarity and tend to have a more realistic 'meaty' sound across the spectrum. 

 

The D7000 is loads more comfy but they felt a little 'cheap' to me (weight was a big part of their comfort, but they just don't have that 'expensive' weight that I like). 

 

Overall I (obviously) prefer the LCD 2, but the D7000 does a lot right (especially for EDM fans) and having one closed and one open can is generally a good plan.

The D7000 scales up well? Exactly how well. Like 2K amps and DAC combos well?

post #105 of 119

I didn't quite get the the level I'm at now with them but I tried them on a few ~500 DAC/Amps and my favorite was the D100. I think they'd sound fantastic with a very transparent SS amp.
