so here are the headphones I actually bought yesterday ..............
which ones do you think will win?
Those headphones vary in sensitivity. I hope you have an amp.
Also, I'd add the AKG K550, Audio Technica ATH-A900x, Denon D600, Shure SRH-840.
S-Logic isn't some gimmicky digital sound processing. It's not any different from other headphones with angled drivers for improved soundstage.
And I'm not quite understanding your distinction between "listening to music" and "surround sound," as a 3-dimensional, airy soundstage which mimics a nice set of speakers, is a feature of most good headphones.
DT 770 (32)
Sound Magic HP100
Sony MDR 10r
Woulda been my picks.
Out of those I think the KEF or soundmagic would win probably. They are both very underrated around these parts.
I actually don't plan to use an amp. For that reason I made sure to get all 4 at 32 ohms approx.
by the way....no love for Sennheiser?
I know ... it's just that everyone says that Open headphones sound much better than closed ones. I know they also say that Open ones are not meant for public listening but hey, sometimes people overeghaturate (wrong spelling I know) ... so I want to see for myself.
