Request for advise on a headphone affair

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,

 

I have been listening to my HD650 for a few years now paired with a Little dot dac_I and a little dot MKIII. It's been a happy relationship but lately I've been getting the itch for a fling with a more sparkly trebly headphone. I don't want to spend a fortune - I'm looking for a cheap thrill.

 

I've come across this on eBay (my brain tells me to steer clear - they must be fake) my heart says go for it - it's only €100. Some sensible advice would be welcome:

+1 this one, this is exactly what you're looking for if you want a brighter headphone than HD600 series.. Acoustic guitars and such sound very crisp through them, compared to HD600. HD600 almost sounds muddy in comparison.



 



But then the treble gets fatiguing..

You should try the SA3000 first, it's a very polarizing headphones

Thanks you to everyone for their suggestions. In the end I ordered the SA3000s and am still waiting for their arrival. I also ordered a Beyerdynamic T90 which arrived a few days ago. So far I am loving it and despite the hot treble - I think it will completely replace the HD650 for my general listening.

 

I'm looking forwards to comparing the SA3000 against the T90 :)
