Best Value in Headphones?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, I'm curious as to which segment of the market do you think provides the best value. I'm looking at Sennheiser HD 598s, and they're $250. How much better are the Sennheiser HD 600s? Is there a brand that makes better headphones in the $250 range? I'm not committed to the $250 range, I just used that as a starting point. How will the 598s differ from say the Sennheiser HD 439s or other $100 headphones. I have an amplifier (a FiiO E11), and my whole collection of music is in FLAC, so I just need to know which headphones to buy. I would go test some myself, but there are no local shops in my area that carry higher end sennheiser models. 

 

Thanks.

The best value in headphones is a set of Koss PortaPros. 

 

I'm not kidding or trolling.  Take it from a guy with a $12k setup - price/performance peaks with the PortaPros.  They're amazing.

I'm just trying to feel out the market. Where is the point of truly diminishing returns? If I was in a double-blind study, would the 598s and 600s be comparable? Would I be able to tell a difference?
