Closed cans for under 700$

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I listen to everything really rock metal rap techno and country. I have the ultrasone hid 580 and want something with tighter bass a little more colorful mids and a brighter treble I will also be needing a portable amp so If you could suggest one as well that would be greatly appreciated, thanks

They are actually IMO kind of semi closed but Denon D7000 if you can still get a pair for a decent price ... maybe used.

Sorry Its hard for me to think of a closed can in that price range besides those. Maybe the beyerdynamic t70p? I know the t80s are coming out soon. I have only heard the d7000s though. as for a decent portable amp the fiio e17 or O2 amp work well for around 150 dollars. Best portable amp in the price range until you get to the 500-700 dollar range for an amp/dac. Sorry I could not help more. Maybe someone who knows of more closed cans might help.

 

cheers

What about the Pro900? if you want to stay in the ultrasone line.

How are they compared to hfi580? Is the bass tighter and ate the mids more forward and is the treble clearer and brighter?

Have you thought about getting the amp first?  I'm not familiar with your current headphones, unfortunately, but

it is entirely possible that a good amp might tighten the bass.  And if you spend a bit more on the amp, you

might find it gives the music extra drive up and down the gamut.  And there's something to be said about

spending as much as you can on a single component.  The idea there is if you went up to 600 or 700 on

a top flight portable amp, that might be a purchase you'd continue to be excited about for years to come.

Just a thought.

I was planning on buying an amp that would best suit the new headphones I'm getting a portable amp that might bring the mids forward while lowering the bass if I decided on the pro900 or the audio technical ath1000 I've got a little more than a grand to spend on a new set up

Heya,

 

Fiio E17 with a Denon D5000 or D600. Alternatively, an AudioTechnica A900X or Beyer DT770 premium 250ohm.

 

Very best,
