Loudest sound output? Sennheiser 439 + portable amp or Beats Studio

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

I was born with mild hearing loss and I was wondering which of these would have the loudest sound output? 

 

Sennheiser 439 + Portable Amp (either fiio e10 or e11)

or

Beats Studio 

 

I plan to use the headphone for my PC and my phone (usa galaxy s3) I'm open to other suggestions as well. I would like to spend no more than $150-$160.

Heya,

 

Considered an IEM? At least that way no one else has to hear it.

 

Very best,

I have an IEM but they get uncomfortable after a while. The headphones will be used at home only.
What would you suggest?

Heya,

 

I would put you on a CAL! or Koss DJ PRO 100, or Sony MDR7506 and then just get a JDS Labs CMOY or Fiio E7 (because it will work both as desktop/portable), and crank it up until you hear something.

 

Very best,

Very best,

I used to have the Sony MDR7506 and it gets tiring to wear it after a long use. Do you know if the CAL! goes around the ear rather than pressed against the ear?

 

I really like how comfortable the Sony MDR-XB500 is, do you know an alternative to this headphone? Maybe the CAL! might be the one for me but I need you to confirm.

 

Thanks!
