Hi guys, i was looking to buy one of these beyerdynamics, here are the prices:
What would you guys suggest between these ones?
I agree. When I first got my HE-400, I wasn't partial to it's sound signature (maybe because I was so used to dynamic drivers). After trying out the dt 880 and dt 990 in the 600 ohm versions as well as the akg k701, I started to appreciate how well the HE-400 performed with a variety of genres. It's provides a real honest sound that stays true to pretty much anything you throw at it. It's like a well-machined, precise piece of equipment that holds no surprises. The AKG's (and Beyers to some extent) sonic boundaries are less defined, so you might get a few curveballs here and there with some songs in certain genres. They will reward you with some songs, but might punish you with others. None of the headphones you listed above will have the rich, weighty tone and full mids that the HE-400 possess. If you like a lighter, airier tone with hollowed-out mids (which does help with the soundstage), then the AKG and Beyers might be the cans for you. In my opinion, the HE-400s are the most consistent-performing headphones for the price.
If you are interested, I'm going to have my HE-400 up for sale soon. PM me and I can give you a good deal. I'm planning to move up to the HE-500
The Beyerdynaic DT880 Premium 600-Ohm and DT990 Premium 600-Ohm are really something to buy used at a really good price (That is what I did).
the HE-400 is also a really good option.
as for the beyerdynamics, they sound best when the 600 ohm version is purchased and properly amped. i wouldn't ever recommend getting the 32/250 ohm variants.
the k-701 are also amazing headphones that when amped properly, give you a very clean and detailed sound with a unique sound signature. however, k-701s tend to be bass shy, and hard to drive.
Yes, it's rather quite good. I found the HE-400 to sound the most pleasant, musical, and organic. The DT880 sounds a bit dry to me. The K701 had no real "fun" factor me for me. The DT990 sounded offensive due to the recessed mids and harsh treble.
