Warm headphones for no more than $200.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

After owning the HD 650's and getting a taste of their warm sound signature, I can say that I am addicted. However, they were too expensive for me when factoring the price of an decent DAC/Amp. Thus I would like something at no more than $200 that is efficient, warm, and amazingly comfortable. I would love a nice balanced headphones with maybe a slight emphasis on the bass and they absolutely cannot be bright. I am impartial to both open and closed headphones but definitely not something with a less than average sound stage. The MDR-1R's are currently on the top of my list followed by the Fidelio L1, MDR-MA900, and UE 6000 but maybe want some opinions on other headphones that I may have missed.

Warm-ish headphones I've tried have been varied and do not necessarily come up to the level of detail extraction and smoothness as the HD600s but you could look into:


Sennheiser Momentum (on-ear)
AIAIAI TMA-1 Young Guru Edition
Shure SRH1840
V-MODA M-80
Sony MDR-1R
KEF M500
Mad Dogs (need power though)
 

Most of these hover from $100 to $300+ but you could probably find some good deals. For example, I know that RazordogAudio sells the KEF M500s for less than their MSRP.

 

 

Good luck!
