Who got headphones for Christmas and what did you get? Doesn't really count if they were a present to yourself but post anyway.
Very happy holidays to all.
Signed up to this website looking for a pair of headphones to replace my $30-40 headphones, as a present to myself.. Started with a budget of ~$75..
Ended up with DT-880 Pros and a FiiO E7/E9 combo.
What if I have a split personality, does that count?, I'm I allowed to tell you that we bought myself a nice pair of limited edition Bushmills Grados, wich, by the way, sound wonderful.
HEY!, what did I tell you about posting in my threads? what do you mean your thread, this is MY thread!, and those are MY Bushmills Grados!
I got my first real pair of headphones and first ever amp with the money from my family/partner for christmas.
Got a pair of dt770's pro 80ohms and a Fiio e10, it's exciting to enter the world of highish end headphones. Well I had tried a pair of creative aurvanna lives, a pair of dt990s and my favorite so far the sony ma900's last year. Though due to money at the time, they all had to go back and I couldn't keep them.
I love the amp so far, though I may send back the dt770's and go a bit higher end or something different in the price range. I don't like them so far, still burning them in but the soundstage/musical separation is terrible on them. I know they are closed, but people praised them for having good soundstage and musical separation for being closed cans.
I am not expecting them to be as good as open in that department, though I expected them to be atleast better than the cals at 3 times the price.
Will give them another 3-4 days burning in and if nothing changes will see what else is great in the same category. Wish I could go open.
