Just bought an AK120 and got to admit the hisound does sound better for the most part (nicer bass, seems to be er, um, cleaner? with my iGrados anyway, but, obviously, the UI is better on the AK...dang-it...

 

The Roxanne and UE7 pro I have work better on the AK as there is no need for the line attenuator to get rid of the noise.  Need more time to get a real good feel for the AK though...

I think if the files and phones are up to it, you should prefer the AK120 but that they can be discussed in this fashion speaks very highly of the HiSound player.

Hi all,

Could you help me to find the best headphone for my studio ?

The only thing i don't want... is to use a portable Amp...

I heard about Sennheiser Amperior, but i'd like to have your point of view before to buy a new one...
Actually i have a Philips Fidelio L1, and a MrSpeakers MadDog...
Thank you.

HD25/amperior do pair very well with studio V.
I found dt1350 very enjoyable as well

I used this: Shure EAADPT-KIT Adapter Kit (Combines 1/4" Adapter, Airline Adapter, Attachable Volume Control)
It does not say what value it is.
I will see if I can measure it tonight when 1 get home.

at max volume it reads 5.3 ohms
at ~3/4 volume it is 103.7 ohms
at ~1/2 volume it is 277 ohms
at ~1/4 volume it is 471 ohms
at lowest or min volume it is OL higher ohms than my meter can read

Basically I use it to get the Studio up to the 25 or so on its volume control, which cleans up the signal, then use the shure to control my listening volume. Works very well.

Does anybody know wich headphone between the HD600 and HD650 would be the best match with the 3rd ANV. I mainly listen to classical and acoustic jazz. Is there any other headphone in the same price range that would be a better match?

Thanks

Maybe something easier to drive even though I have good results with my combo studio v + HD600

What volume do you require on your studio v for HD600 to listen comfortably? Do you feel the studio is powering them properly? I ask as I'm interested in HD600.

H20 - on mine:

 

Standard Rock - Dire Straits (Sultans Of Swing) - comfortable for me at level 15 (which on my spl meter was averaging around 70-75 dB

Classical - Vivaldi's Four Seasons (Anne Sophie Mutter) - comfortable for me at level 20 (similar spl - ranging from around 60dB to 75 dB)

 

Above just to give you 2 extremes.  Oh and the V3 pairs beautifully with the HD600 :D

Check out the bottlehead/crack kit, sounds like the ulitimate with the HD's.   Plus you can build it yourself!   If I go full size that will be the combo I'll get, get a used 600 and build the kit possibly just shy of $400 if I can get a great deal on a used pair, maybe the HD model right under the 600 if it sounds equal

I have the Amperior and find that the Studio V 3rd is too powerful for them, at least the volume seems to loud for me even at volume 1. I use headphones with a little higher impedence like the AKG K280 Parabolic. Maybe my ears are overly sensitive though.

 

Coming back to this, which closed headphones do you guys use with your Studio? I have the ATh-50, but to me they are really unexceptional. And also which IEM? The Studio V 3rd, seems too powerful for my TF10 and Sony XBA-3.
