Battle Of The Flagships (58 Headphones Compared) - Page 108

post #1606 of 5248

Hello,

 

I have exactly the same impression for Stax SR507, I feel it's sound a bit etch and have a small soundstage.

But it stays incredible headphone with a detailed, liquid, fast, clear tone. I have a SRM007t amp.

 

I want to upgrade to HD800 balanced with headamp gsx or beta 22 or dna stratus. This kind of combo keep the positive aspect of my previous combo : liquidity, transient decay, clarity, overall balance ?  I will have more fuller tone with better imagining and soundstage ?

the hd-800 is good with beta-22 but not a perfect match!

Rather, you'd still enjoy all of your post counts. But, left wondering how they ended up on another forum. ksc75smile.gif

At the moment I prefer the HF2 as they don't represent the typical Grado sound with "piercing"treble(as I prefer "dark"headphones)and compared to the Audeze and Hifiman they might be technically not on the same level,but they do have a "magic"sound which keeps you engaged with the music at all times!

My ranking right now:HF2 - LCD2 - HE500

Have to add that I listen to the Grados SE and the other two in balanced mode....and still for my ears, the HF2 can compete just nicely!

Also,have sold some balanced HD650 as they didn't get any headtime any more!

 

Wow that's a great little (compared to David 99% of us seem stingey!) combination of phones you have. I should have got those HF2's I should've taken the chance... But the safer bet is often the option for me when I'm spending serious money. I understand what you mean about technical ; I am beginning to think there is a technical side where the phones are more neutral and a fun side where they are delivering a more obviously coloured sound. It would seem advantageous to dip a toe into both waters.......

As far as I can recall, I haven't heard the Z1000.  I'm glad you like em though.  They are discontinued unfortunately :(

Hello David. Do you plan on testing other Ultrasone models, like the Signature Pro/Signature DJ/Pro 900/Pro 2900? The two Signature models are meant to belong as flagships alongside Edition 8 and 10, while the Pro 900 and Pro 2900 are the highest models from the Pro series.

 

Also, congrats on your insight for all headphones you tested. However, from the looks of it, it seems the list is expanding to the point where it might be a good idea to change the 50+ number to 100+.

Thanks!

 

I would like to include more Ultrasones eventually.  I've owned several in the past that I no longer have.  I've read a lot of good things on head-fi regarding the Signature Pro.  I would definitely, like to include that.  I think if this review were to reach anywhere over 65-70 units, I'd have to start borrowing for sure!  But I'd love to see it grow into something even bigger some day.

The Fidelio X1 is a hit in Europe.

I think it stemmed from something that happened at a meet.  Put on the HD800, put a HD650 on top of that and enjoy.

is it about the HD650 piggy bagging (or piggy backing? not sure) the HD800? (wearing the HD650 over the HD800)
