Hey all. I've recently gotten a job (my first one ), and, of course, I plan to save up for some expensive cans. Now, which, though, is my dilemma.
My current favorite headphones are my DT770 Pro. I use them all the time for just about everything. I personally wish they had a little less warmth, but just a tiny bit.
I primarily listen to EDM, alternative rock, jazz, and orchestral
I don't know if I plan to use these out of the house. It honestly doesn't matter. I think the headphone would determine if I'll be using them as a portable or not.
What I've been looking at
Mr Speakers' Mad Dogs ($300). A legend in the entry level of planar magnetic headphones. I've heard so many great things about these, but I'm not sure if these would really be that much of an upgrade to my DT770.
Bowers and Wilkins P7 ($400). After reading that one review of these on Head-Fi, I've basically lusted after these headphones.
HiFiMan HE-400 ($400). I've heard tons about these, but some people advise me to just go straight for the HE-500 over these. Would anyone mind explaining the main differences between these headphones?
Mr. Speakers' Alpha Dogs ($600). I really like how these look. Plus, they're closed back, which I do find myself preferring. Jude's comment on how they sounded open was really something that caught me. But, I'm not sure if I should just settle with the Mad Dogs instead of these.
