I've been stalking the forum for a year now and I've finally decided to create an account. Right now I have a Sennheiser Momentum, a Centrance DACport LX, and a Fiio e11. For my end game, I'm planning to get one of the T50rp mods, either LFF's Paradox (Slant), Dan's MrSpeakers Alpha Dog with a matching amp and maybe a better source. Who knows?
For now, my eyes are set on either the Sennheiser HD650 or the Philips Fidelio X1. I'm planning to keep these as my "fun" sounding headphones and as partners for the more neutral headphones mentioned at the start. I've read that the HD650s with the Bottlehead Crack are comparable to or equal to the X1s with ALO Audio's PanAm. The HD650s have a better scalability and better imaging but the X1s have better attack and decay. I'll be getting the O2 as an amp for these headphones for its availability and relatively low price. Of course, I'll be upgrading the amp eventually for the headphone I choose.
I listen to a lot of genres, Hip-Hop, R&B, Classical, Pop Rock, Alt Rock, Indie, Synth-Pop, Synth-Rock, Prog Rock, and some Reggae. Lastly, I'm afraid that even with the best equipment, even without the so-called Sennheiser veil, the HD650s will still be a slow headphone (I already have my Momentums for that). That is why I'm even considering the X1s
Thanks for the input guys!!!
