I am about to buy my first audiphile headphones this night. PLEASE help :D - Page 2

Fostex TH600 would be my top choice for a $1000 closed can, and it is fairly easy to amp.

Sekka, isn't the TH600 around $1200 even with the recent price drop?

I've seen several go for $999 or less when used or on sale.

 

Here's one: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=996443&Q=&is=REG&A=details

Still deciding whether I should pick up a open or closed headphone though. I couldn't justify keeping my open cans cause of the sound leakage...so I'm using a SRH 840 right now while I try to make up my mind.

Get some mad dogs if you want closed isolation. Or put in a pre order for the alpha dogs. You need better amping than anything Fiio can offer. Get the alphas/MD and some schiit gear. Modi+magni or a lil more on the lyr.

You're done now.evil_smiley.gif

 

If you want to spend less Vmoda M100

 

Let us know if you have a sudden urge to drop $10,000 on a complete open-backed set up. I can recommend you something in about 5 seconds.

This, your best bet. And hell get a fiio E12 if you need even MORE bass than the Sig GJ has

I took about 1 month to decide on which IEM to get and even then I didn't quite like it's sound signature. It's advisable to spend a week or so to get exactly what you are looking for.

Indeed, I usually start reaseraching about 2 months in advance. With my Portable Headphone it was about 2 weeks of reaserach before I bought them [and I happend to get the money I needed a little sooner than I had though] still Give it about 2 weeks to really get what you want, but I usually start MONTHS in advance. I've got a buyer holding an amp for me till Mid September xD

I always buy goods after doing considerable amount of time in reading reviews, test reports etc. If I were spending 1000$ for a head phone, I would take at least one or two months to do research and also try in shops.

My 1 month long analysis was for a $200 IEM, so basically what I'm trying to say is; I did more researchbiggrin.gif

Well I'd like to try them in shops, but all I have are reviews. Still, the Beyer T90 and He 500 are both cans I want, and more than likely will buy without trying them as I'm confident in thier reviews and sound signitures.  Both are ofc upgrades to the Dt 880 that retain it's sound signiture
