So I have gone feet first into headphones and bought, auditioned, and sold a lot of headphones in the last month. I don't claim to be an audiophile.... as I started with some HD280s, then moved to HD558 and found a huge difference... so I started reading reviews/head-fi and all of a sudden I had 15 headphones in my office. As I would listen to them and do A/B comparisons, I ended up with the following 4 headphones:
Sennheiser HD 700
I love each of them, and I am having a hard time picking a favorite. I can hear differences between them when I am actively doing A/B comparisons, but after the first 10 seconds of switching, I listen and just really enjoy the headphone.
Audeze - love the laid back sound and nice tight bass. Not as comfortable as the others, but I can wear for several hours without discomfort.
Beyerdynamic T5p - Best closed back headphone I have heard... I will likely keep this one just to listen when in noisy environments or other environments when I don't want to disturb people.
Beyerdynamic T1 - Love it...just wish it would have a bit more tight bass like the Audeze. I also love the high end on these... I have a hard time deciding if I like the laid back Audeze or the brighter Beyerdynamics... I really like them both while listening to them....
Sennheiser HD 700 - Most comfortable - Sound great on almost all songs, but I occasionally come across some songs that just don't sound good (maybe these songs are just recorded poorly???)
So, how do each of you end up picking what you like best when you have several that you like?
