The best headphones in the world - Page 2

post #16 of 30

If I had to take one headphone, one amp, and one dac it would be HD650, Graham Slee Ultra-Linear Diamond, and the Schiit Gungir

The AKG sextett is my favorite out of all the ones I've tried including $1000+ headphones. I think it is because they seem to do everything I want really well. I'm really curious how the German Maestros sound after really loving all the MB Quarts I've tried so far. Hell even the Beyerdynamics been keeping me happy. I think the rule of thumb for me is if the headphone is made in Austria or Germany, then it most likely would be good.

The headphone I think is the best in the world is the bass-heavy R10 with the SR-009, Orpheus, and the bass-light R10 being close runner ups.

I'd love to be able to check out the Orpheus and the Stax someday. Not that far ahead, regrettably, just yet, and here in Bulgaria we hardly even have a place where I can have a listen to those.

 

Heck, I don't even think someone has them, though I could be wrong. Planning on spending a couple of months in the US in the summer, so I'll definitely be visiting a store that has them on display and checking them out for myself.

 

For now, I'd just have to say - HD800 all the way! Used to have HD650 back in the day too, those were beautiful as well. Though I probably sound like a moron, or a Sennheiser fanboy. Oh well. At least I'm not saying "Dre's Beats" :D

Anything Bose is the best.

I sold my H800 after getting my hands on the Audeze LCD-XC, I love everything about them. Looks, sound, closed. they could use some comfort adjusting but I don't mind to much. great headphones

There is no "best" because there are always trade offs. So far I've found that HD600 has the fewest trade offs (except that it needs a decent amp, which I don't consider a trade off). Are others better? At certain things, yes--but they're also worse at other things.

Audio Technica m-50 Of course everyone knows they are the best headphones ever in the world.

I don't know about in the entire world, but I like my Sennheiser HD800s more than any that I have owned or heard, including a Stax SR 404 system. They have electrostatic-like clarity but with better bass and greater warmth. For classical and other acoustic music, they would be hard to beat...and I don't even use a dedicated amp--I just plug them straight into my Oppo 105's headphone jack and enjoy their glorious clarity and detail.
