Best upgrade to Alessandro ms1's: HiFiMAN HE300 or Audio-Technica ATH-AD900x?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hello again everyone.

 

I have been looking into some options for new headphones to replace my Alessandro MS1's. I have narrowed my choices down to either:

 

The HiFiMAN HE300

 

or

 

the Audio-Technica ATH-AD900x

 

Noting that either will be sold to me for the same price (250 US), I will be using these unamped from an ipod classic, and that I am seeking a sound signature closer to my prior headphones (Alessandro ms1's), what is my best option?

 

Thank you.

Also, if possible, I can procure the HE 400 instead, but I was told that they aren't worth using without any amplification. Any thoughts on this?

still seeking opinions on which would be better unamped, and solely for listening to music: the HiFiMAN HE300 or the Audio-Technica ATH-AD900x

A new option has arisen in the form of the form of the Beyer Dynamic DT 990 Premium 32 OHM model.

 

So, I guess my choices are now

 

the HiFiMAN HE300 or the Audio-Technica ATH-AD900x or the Beyer Dynamic DT 990 Premium 32 OHM.

 

Any thoughts?

Do yourself a favor and first invest in a (small) amp!

So yet another opportunity has presented itself.

 

Beyer Dynamic DT 990 Premium 32 OHM or HiFiMAN HE400?

 

for unamped use, and exclusively for listening to music?

I guess amping is not an option for you?  But I tell you it does make a world of difference even with easy to drive HP's

 

what kind of sound signature were you going for?
