Which are the best headphones under U$1000 for classical music ??

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone, since I met headfi I'm looking for a good setup to play/enjoy classical music. I´ll start by the headphones. I'm thinking not to spend more than U$1000 on them. Nowadays I use HE400, but in my opinion they don't have enough bright. I mean I want to hear the breathing of the players, complete string sound, air between instruments, and the power of the drums and percussion.

 

Questions: planar or dynamics? Is it ok HE500 for that? may I consider the senns on this field?

 

thanks for your help

Alessandro MS-Pro, u could probably get a used HD800/T1 for that budget.

I'll second that, since that's what I did.  You'll hear the players breathe, the pages turn, and you can (only a slight exaggeration here) almost tell which player is making the noise.  Oh, and I use them almost exclusively for classical, late romantic / 20th century orchestral, concerti, and opera for the most part.

I would recommend the HD800 too (or the T1)
