post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

Owns:

Beyerdynamic T1

Ultrasone ED8

Sennheiser HD700

 

Amp/Dac:

CEntrance DACmini

Beyerdynamic A1

 

Source:

iPad

Macbook Pro

 

 

There's something missing In each headphone that can't get pure satisfaction, I'm missing something In here?

And If you advice to buy next headphone/Amp what would that be ?

Thanks

Yes. You are missing bass you can feel with your body and the natural soundstage thrown by a pair of good speakers. Headphones are nice, but pure satisfaction? I say fuggetaboutid. Pure satisfaction comes from elsewhere.

Hooster I totally agree with you, but If you want to have a peace with your self without worrying If someone will knock on your door to lower the sound, The headphones Is way to go and since I'm new to audiophile thing. I'm expecting for that sum of funds to get something unique.

However I mostly listen to Goa-Trance and Classical And Some Rock Music.

As small review of what I own so far:

- ED8 / Nice warm bass but harsh treble.

- T1 / Big soundstage / Warm treble / And Deep bass

- HD700 / Tight soundstage / Nice mids but Bass Isn't showing clarity

 

I'm thinking to try TH900 or HE-6 ? Any suggestion ?

I'm looking after big soundstage / warm cans.and good bass

If you want a warmer sound then try HE500 or Audeze headphones instead of HE6.

I've never listened to an Audeze LCD 2.. but it am highly interested in trying out one once.

Maybe give it a shot? :)

The HD650 should be picked up before the LCD-2 or HE-500. IMO. And stay away from HD800/HE-6 if you want warmth.

+1 on that

Another factor ,you might want to consider,is the comfort factor on the 650's;it is excellent.

The reason why I was going to get HD800 cause I've read that It has bigger soundstage than T1 and sounds more natural..
An upgrade of T1 would be LCD2/3 or TH900?
I'm a bit sceptical about HD650 because of It's price that It won't show much clarity as T1
Thanks everyone ^^

It's only a few threads down from this one, it shouldn't be any trouble finding it by yourself.
