post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
hi guys,
nice day everyone!!!
im looking for portable cans or iem with isolation due to sometimes of outdoor listening.
looking forward into those type of music above... please give me some recommendation!!!
sound: clear, detailed, smooth high or mid or both biggrin.gif bass should be punchy not bloat...(im not basshead)...
btw.. what type of db response graph should i looking for to get this type of signature? V-shape?
source would be htc phone with lossless music: flac, wav or 500kpbs.
another would be laptop with ud-100 tiny dac and fiio e6 and a creative blaster something... i forget already...
considering to get amp as well should i get fiio e12? or save more to get the jds labs amp?
:cool:thank you!! cool.gif

If you want some good portable, on ear headphones, the Beyerdynamic DT-1350 are very nice. Innerfidelity also posted a great review of the new Onkyo ES-FC300 and ES-HF300--haven't heard those yet. Getting a pair by UPS tomorrow biggrin.gif

DT 1350s are fine with rock. I liked them a lot, but decided that I wasn't going to travel enough to justify keeping them.

If you are a big rock music fan, with a $300 budget, you could get the DT1350s and then also try a pair of Grado SR80i for home use when you don't need isolation (they are open headphones). Grados are FUN for rock smily_headphones1.gif

BTW: both of these headphones are easy to drive and wouldn't need an amp.

for $300 or less, try HF300 + Fiio E12 or Audio Technica ATH-WS99 + Fiio E12.

 

I recommend ATH-WS99 and have to admit it gives a lot of fun to my ears even comparing to my KEF M500 which imo is the best sounding headphones in the price range.

If you wanted to stay within your original budget with a portable, I just got the Onkyo ES-FC300 I mentioned above. Definitely a good portable headphone for $150 and sound very good with rock.
