Best Headphone choice for IPOD - Advice

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello there,


Back in 2007, I bought a AKG ( whatevery, Looks like K701 model , around the ear) for appr. 100 €   and I loved every bit of the music from this headphone.

Early this this year I got a Sennheisser HD **  ( not *** ) roughly 90€ as well for my sistre as gift. But after trying both my old AKG and new one she choose the old one .


It looks like I bought a cheaper model from Sennheisser.  Now I miss the old sound quality .


I was about to buy AKG K701, but the sales rep mentioned it may not be the best choice to use wiht Ipod as K701 would need a amp or more power to drive or something like that.


So now, can you please give tell me which is the best headphone to use with ipod classic. budget ( 250 - 400 Dollar)


My priority on requirement is


1.  Audio Quality.        -     clarity of instruments, details, Sound stage.


2. Built quality & mobility -   I am not a good care taker :(


3. Noise cancelling             -   Like that idea as I on flight often but I am not sure if I would need it. I am happy without NC as well.


it would be helfpul to have your idea or proposal or advice.


Thanks in advance,

If you are willing to get an amp, you can go for AKG K712 Pro + FiiO E12/Objective O2 with FiiO L9. If you do not wish to pair it with an amp, the Sennheiser Momentum will do the trick

Hope it helps,

You might like one of the lower impedance beyerdynamic headphones. My 770's are practically indestructible.
