Hello Fellow Head-Fiers,
Been a while since I posted in the forums but I'm still very much into headphones and enjoying music almost daily.
For the past year or so I've been very much in love with my current setup which is as follows:
DAC: Anedio D1 with the saber chip - love this one for it's amazing clarity, resolution, texture and detail.
AMP: Burson HA-160 - adds PRAT and warmth to the Anedio, I think it's a wonderful match.
Headphone: HD650 - I love this one as a detailed, forgiving allrounder. I'm a big HD650 fan and prefer it over the HD800 or anything from ultrasone or AKG.
I've had other headphones along the way but usually over the course of 6 months or so I stop listening to the "new" headphone and go back to the HD650 without even thinking about it.
I do however realize that the HD650 - although great - isn't unbeatable. I did audition a pair of Hifiman and was very impressed with it since I liked the soundstage openess, detail, and "fun-factor" they provided. I've also tried the LCD2/LCD3 and they are amazing but they didn't really stir my emotions, they were "impressive" more than fun. I personnally thought that the Hifiman had more PRAT and "fun-factor".
So - I'm looking to add maybe a pair of Hifiman headphones to my small collection, but I'm at a loss as to what model to pick. Do you think you could help me pick a Hifiman model or maybe suggest some other headphone that you think I would like?
