Need a pair of over ear cans that make me put down my AKG 240MKII

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Like the title says, I'm trying to find a pair of over ears that would be a good addition to my AKG 240 and KossPP. I am right now definitely satisfied with the sounds of my AKGs. Its detail is great and I'm using a Fiio e10 to run it.

 

What Headphone would I upgrade to, that would be another whole level compared to my AKGs? I'm looking for better soundstage (clearer imagery), stronger bass and "fun" sound. Needs to be something comfy, like those AKG pads.

 

I mostly listen to classic rock or soundtracks, which I know are kind of the opposites of the musical range. I dont have a exact budget, so it can go up to 300$ if I needed to, but I am trying to look for better value.

 

Current thoughts:

DT 990 Pro - reviews say it gives a "fun" sound

AKG Q701 - I've tried this on before, and I cant say I don't like it

AKG K612 - This new pair seems to be on par with the 701, but at a lower price

HD - 600 - Everyone says this is the amazing pair? I tried it on and I like the pads but the sounds did not surprise me as much as when I first put on my 240s

 

Any suggestions on what I should upgrade to? Any good pairing to DAC/Amps are greatly appreciated too.

 

P.s. Its my first post, so sorry if I missed some community guidelines.

 

Thanks,

Anthenator

Just realized I posted this in the wrong forum... How stupid. Will be moving it now.
