Best closed headphones

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi! Currently, I have an AKG 550 connected to my iMac, a Fiio E10 as DAC and a Little Dot MKIII. Could you suggest me better closed headphones with similar sound/stage?

from what ive read, the a900x may have better imaging and possibly soundstage

im not sure if there are any better closed headphones that have better soundstage than the k550.  or if there is, it'll cost a lot of money (d7000/th600/th900)

I had the a900x and K550 together in the same month 

 

honestly if you an upgrade, try the Purrin Modded W1000x, I tried

 

K550

Sound Magic Hp 100

Shure 840

Audio Technica A900x 

 

and at the end of the day, non of them matched my w1000x. All of them had less sound stage, less imaging and... a lesser sound quality over all

 

The Hp 100 and k550 had slighty better Sub Bass, but where narrow and slighty congested in comparison. A fully modded [and Pad Repalced] w1000x goes for around $400 or so IF you can find it!
