For only your EDM music, do you prefer the Ultrasone or Fostex? If you could only keep one, which would it be?

Got to be the HE-560. Sounds like a good upgrade to the HE-500 and it looks more efficient from the specs.

I'm very interested in the Sennheiser HD8 DJ and Beyer T70 p, but I probably won't be upgrading for a while. Both are *very* cool!

I've got a comparison of both in the Signature DJ thread - or you can pm me for more information. I'd keep the Sig DJ for my stuff as well as the incredible ability to double as a portable.

I already have Beyerdynamic A1/t1 combo, Denon AH-D600 and Beyerdynamic P50. Waiting for my DT1350-80 to arrive.


I Plan to add a Hifiman HE-560 once they are out for something completely different, and hope the A1 can drive them comfortably.

Probably either Senn HD650 or used Denon D2000/5000, and an amp. I doubt I'll ever get into real summit-fi stuff, I just want good reliable headphones and an amp that pairs well with them. And good IEMs, maybe Westone 3s. On the other hand, ask again in a couple of years and I'll probably be wanting a Stax 'phones/amp combo or something..

Probably the AKG K712 or the Sennheiser HD 600 in a few months, still debating.


In the long run I am aiming for the AKG K812 as it thoroughly impressed me and it's one of the only headphones that gave me the "this is what I am aiming for" feeling, the other headphones being far too expensive and/or rare for me to even consider.

HD600...One day...

Quite a few TH900 people here! I'm getting a loan of them from the Cable Company. Made sense, since I have the Fostex A8 DAC/amp and it's supposed to be a dream match with it. I have enough credits that either that or the HE-560 will soon be in my possession at a nice discount. If they don't work, I might just say screw it and go all in on the Stax.

1. HD25-1 ii

2. LCD 2 rev 2....one day...

He-500 , then the Alpha Dogs (maybe not even that if I like the He-500's more.)


Now, I have the money I have to make the choice.

I have to jump on the Audeze train in the future.



I want to see how they compare to my HE-500.

As I have a thing for downgrading as much as upgrading, I was curious to hear if the D2000 could replace my TH-600. FYI, you will very likely be pleasantly surprised at the head and shoulders difference between the two. D2000 can't compete. TH-600 used prices are getting better and better. You there yet?


The PS-500 is one of the last I definitely like to try. A bit wary that it will be too forward or bright for me.
