If money no object i would shoot for the "LCD-XC"
People have said some nice things about thoes headphone.

Money is a big problem so my upper limit with a lot of push and wait will be something like jh16 and probably waiting for a black friday. My ideal top would be 600usd max!

Also is the weight! I dont want a brick! Something comfortable like a closed hd650 would be perfect!

I suggest not going out to your full budget for work headphones. They'll get stolen or broken and then you're out some significant money. Given that you want isolation and bass I think some of the DJ headphones would serve well and there are plenty of good-sounding DJ cans to choose from in the $150-$300 price range and a few gems under $150. Take a look at the headphone buying guides over in the Help and Getting Started section and the winter gift guide.

I guess the sennheiser momentum could be a good chose, or the shure se425/535, amped both have a good amount of bass, en EQed a lot more i you want =D

Thanks,

In terms of universal iems i have the weetone4r which are good but i think that my ears get tired from the pressure of the tips...... To be honest i havent yet found a safe way to remove the tip and test other... It seems hard and im afraid to break the plastic canal. frown.gif

I have thought momentum and ill check them probably at a store.
Getting stolen or break/damage in the office is not going to happen for sure

is the tube that fragile?

comply foam tips are awesome i personally love them.

what i would do is use a real sharp knife and simply cut away the current tip thats on it. but the knife has to be really sharp.

but since im a knife collector that shouldn't pose a problem :tongue_smile:

i havent try those W4r but the safest way is to hold with one hand the iem, with the fingers grab the base of the tip, slightly pull twisting it a little right and left

Dong this you will see the tip being moved (twisting it a little helps a lot) also ensure you grab the tip only, the plastic on those iems are quite resistant so dont worry, you can broke them if you step on it or apply a great amount of lateral force to the sound tube of the iem

and yep, am also sensitive to the tips, i use the silicon medium on my shure, and a shure e2g foam medium tip for my shoy mdr-ex600

try dif tips and post if you hear diferent the dx50

=)

As far as the tip issue check out the Westone 4 thread as there as has been quite a bit of discussion on that.

Put both iem in the freezer for 15 minutes or so... They will spin freely and come off easy.

Congrats to iBasso on the 1.28 FW. I just upgraded from 1.27 and I can swear I hear some previously unheard details on known and often listened to recordings, like the excellent Fanfare by Jonathan Wilson and Belle & Sebastian's "The Boy with the Arab Strap". Both highly recommended for testing.

That is hearing more detail with my Sennheiser HD 600 than with the Heir 8.A. Looking forward to test with the 8.A tomorrow.:)
