Warmer and warmer and warmer Headphone

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello,

I'm searchin for an open headphone and my priority is its musicality.

 

I actually have a philips x1; it's beautiful, very comfortable, musicality and treble as i like, just mid bit too recessed, but the problem for me is the too wider scene: i often listen live of Dave Matthews Band and sometimes violin and sax solo are positioned too far to the sides of the scene (so i don't like angled drivers as in L1 or X1)

 

Then I tried senn hd 650: timbre and sonority is perfect for me, but i have problem with its treble, not much warmer as in X1.

 

 

I am tempted by NAD hp50 as in some review is describe, but I'm afraid to go to a sealed headphone.

 

Could anyone help me with some proposals of other headphones?

I think you will like the AKG K545. Open sounding for a closed back with a warm sound.

I usually see AKG as headphone with analitical treble

Same here. I have heard the Q701 and K702 and couldn't enjoy them because of their lack of warmth. However, the K545 is a different bread, it sounds very warm and full.

Ok, anyway in that comparison http://stereos.about.com/od/Headphone-Reviews/fl/AKG-K545-Over-Ear-Headphone-Review.htm with NAD hp50 remains with a less warmer treble respect Nad, so between AKG and Nad i prefer Nad.

 

My preference, however, remains for open headphone

I've heard the HP50 and did a review on them. The K545 has SIGNIFICANTLY more bass presence. Also, I prefer the mids on the K545. In terms of treble, they are fairly similar and very articulate.

reallly? Didn't appear all that warm at all to my ears in the store, fairly airy bright sound. But listened less than a minute. Also thought that these required quite a lot of juice.
