New to hi-fi. Looking for over ear headphones to pair with Schiit Magni/Modi

post #1 of 6

Hey folks. Toe dip into the hobby with Schiit Magni/Modi paired with Sennheiser HD595. Looking for new over the ears to match with the Schiit gear. Like bass. No on harsh highs. Into a wide range of music from rock, jazz to RoIO Grateful Dead. Been considering Sennheiser HD600 or HD650, but have not been able to test.

 

Thoughts greatly appreciated.

Hifiman HE-400 is always very well regarded in that price range, and should fit your music tastes very well.

 

For a closed alternative, Mad Dogs, as well as the K550 are good choices.

Thanks for the recommendation. I'll check 'em out. Much appreciated.

For Jazz music, HE 400 is normally suggested. However, it has sibliant treble and recessed mids.

Id go for the MA900, HD650, or Fidelio X1. They can be amped by your setup.

Stay away from the HD598, SR225i/325i, and Q701.

Thanks again for the advice. Any thoughts on AKG K712? From what I've been reading they look pretty flexible for different types of music.
