2013 best heaphone (Under 300) for music. - Page 3

post #31 of 71

What about the Beyer Custom One Pro?  Been reading good things about them from a "musical" stand point.  The bass adjustment option seems appealing.  There are some $150 open box deals for them on ebay right now.

Good point as well, another nice option. Beyer cans are usually a safe beat, since most of em sound about the same xD [there are differeance but the house sound is stable]

Putting a plug in for the Beyer 880's.  I'm a sucker for Beyers.  Like their sound / comfort / build quality.

Dude I'm like 4 hours away from buying a Used Recabled Dt 880 $600 ohm [$300 new and about $170 for the Recable and Retermination] for UNDER $300. The best deals are here on head fi, I also just sold a Hybrid Tube amp for half what it cost me. So trust me, Head Fi'rs don't mind selling a little cheap [because sometimes we got bills due in uhh 6 days lol] because that only helps other people get into the hobby. We share the "love" as it where!

also good options. I hear the Le is a rather nice can indeed! A more balanced 80ohm compared to the current bass heavy one.

I would like to chime in here and say, for $300, closed headphone, the hands-down clear winner is Mr. Speaker's Mad Dog. It's exactly $300, and you won't regret getting them.

BUT, you need a good amp for that can. I thought the SAME thing, and for some one who does NOT have a dac and an Amp the Mad dogs will sound pretty well mediocore. For $300 they are AMAZING cans, but they require some cash dropped into a good source and a powerful amp that can feed some serious amps into those Orthos <3

They are great cans, for 300$ they sound like 300$ unless you have an amp to power it, theeeeen, it sounds a lot better. If you don't want to spend more money, buying an amp, these are not for you.

Thanks, they need an amp to really shine! Otherwise there are better options you will enjoy better!

Until you have heard them out of something like a Matrix M Stage or even a LIttle Dot 1+ trust me there are other things that sound better and are easier to drive. For the Price, out of an e7 they are well a waste... but if you like them that's fine :D Out my BOTH my e11 and my cMoy the sound stage was to cramp, the bass had to much decay, the mids had too little weight and WAY to much body and decay, they where like lava, and the treble was horribly recessed. That being said out of my [Indeed G3] with a Clear Top Tube, EVERYTHING opened up, and the mids kept their body, but got a little tighter and had some weight, I still didn't like how thick it was with my Tube though.

 

Non the less head phone amps do NOT do those cans  justice. Out of a powerful Solid State [that can push some real amps] they sound much better ^^. STILL if you can get a pair for like $200 and then grab something like a Little Dot 1+ for around $100, all you would need a an iPod with a LOD cable and you'd be good! Still they need a desktop amp, otherwise for the price there are much cheaper and equally pleasing options! 

 

That being said, they are still GREAT cans, and TheReem you'll enjoy them much more as you get better gear. TRUST me <3

Do you think an Asgard would do the MDs justice?

Yes it would be, the Matrix M Stage is another good one, but sadly the Asgard pushes about 2x as much power as the Matrix M Stage [no fair Schiit did their home work xD] Still I paid $215 for my Matrix and you know what, it can still push about 100mw into a 600 ohm load, which is a touch louder than I even need to listen to honestly.

 

That being said, the Asgard shoves a freaking WATT into 60ohms [1000mW] so for the Mad Dog is should do wonders, that said seeing as both are about the same price... it really comes down to sonic prefrance. The Matrix is know to pair REALLY well with the Mad Dog [sadly I got my matrix after my Mad Dog was returned :(

 

Still I would say yes the Asgard 2 would be a good match for it, at least technically.
