Handful of headphones I need help picking between, to be amped with Fiio E17.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I’m pretty set on getting the E17 AMP/ DAC but just having trouble picking headphones, I was thinking about buying 2 or 3 to try out since there isn't anywhere near me where I can test out any of my selections, let alone decent selections to compare with.

My max budget is £250 for one if it’s worth it, but I would prefer to be around ~£180 range.

This is my first time looking into audiophile quality headphones, so I have no experience to compare anything against.

I listen to a huge variety, but mostly to Indie, hard and prog rock.
I play a lot of video games too, shooters to racers to Flight Sims.
I am not competitive, but I like immersion.

I’m looking for comfort for long hours and over the ear style.
These are what have interested me so far;

-DT990 pro 250 ohms

-Senn HD 598

-Philips Fidelio X1

-Hifiman HE – 400

-AKG Q701


Again, I’ll be buying 2 or 3 to try, but some insight on what you guys think is best for me would be really helpful. I’m open to other suggestions if you have any.

Thanks.

why do you want E 17? what is your budget for dac/amp?

Reason being, I need the S/PDIF input so that I could later hook up a ps4 to my setup.

I'd appreciate if it didn't cost an arm and a leg too, thats why I want to go for it. If there's anything else you think would be better suited, let me know =)

Check out the Sony MDR-MA900 and AKG K612 Pro.
