Good morning Guys,
I'm looking at getting a set of headphones for use at home and in the office.
They will be used with Laptop or iDevices (mainly iPad4 and Touch 5G) into a Centrance HiFi M8 with SE and 4 pin XLR output.
I have owned the HD650 before and loved them and qould quite happily get another set of these with a Balanced cable. However I wondered how the other headphones in the title would compare and whether they would improve on the HD650? Alternative options at the moment consist of the AlphaDogs and TH-600. I've also heard good things about the HE400 but just a bit worried about the weight of these as I believe they can sit quite heavy on the head?
My musical tastes are quite varied and include pretty much everything from the 60's throught to present day, including a lot of female vocal stuff. Dont really listen to classical or opera so we can take that out of the equation.
I like fairly balanced headphones that can produce vocals well and have a strong bass slam (for when its in the music).
What are your guys opinions on the cans I have mentioned and in fact are there any other recommendations? Ideally they will be used with a balanced 4 pin XLR termination.
