PRAT Speed fullbodied unamped: YAMAHA 220 or Shure 1540 or Fostex 600 ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I am looking for a closed over the ear headphone. I had a Sennheiser HD600 which i loved for its full-bodied natural midrange, sound staging and PRAT - just wanting more bass. I also liked the M50 for its natural presentation and bang for buck. I like Magnepans for speakers. Looking for more speed and refinement, a good kick and a fast quality mid bass.

 

YAMAHA 220 or Shure 1540 or Fostex 600 ?

 

I would use a macbook air, smartphones, and maybe a usb amp/dac up to 700 usd. 

 

What would you recommend (beside listening for myself :-) ? Is the YAMAHA in the league of the Shure or Fostex?

Can't speak for the other phones, but the Yamaha's do perfectly fine without an amp, and they have great bass.

TH600 is out - just read that the TH600 has recessed mids like the DENONs which i didn't like.

 

so:  YAMAHA vs Shure 

 

Amp/dac:  dragonfly 1.2 vs Audioengine D3 vs geek out
