Better all around HE400,DT880 or Q701

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi I have been looking for a home set of open cans. I picked up a set of DT990 cheap and they are fun for some things but now I would like a more balanced set. I mostly listen to rock and jazz. The HE400 DT880 and the Q701 seem to be the front runners they will be powered by a home receiver. Any thoughts on the three?
Thanks

Heya,

 

I would go HE400 without question. DT880 as second choice.

 

Very best,

Thanks

Make sure you get the velour pads to go with the HE-400 (Makes them sound way better).

The HE-400 is a terrific headphone

Even though I'm an AKG fan, I agree with everyone that HE400 is the best choice for the genres you listen to.

OK it looks like the HE400 has it. Hopefully I'll see the price drop for xmass.

Thanks all

Yes what rubinstein says is correct. 

 

if the OP has the money for just the headphones right now he/she should get them. they will sound good un-amped and then you can get a good amp and DAC later to really make them shine.
