Choosing a Pair of Portable Heaphones - Page 2
Head-Fi's Best Sellers
Thank you all for your help in my decision and research!
After doing a lot more research I think I am close to a decision. Since they're discontinued, I can get a very good deal on a pair amperoirs. With the extra money I saved I can put it towards an upgraded cable. The cable on the amperiors is definitely one of the main drawbacks for me. Furthermore, I have never heard of someone being very disappointed with the amperiors. This makes the amperiors a very safe choice in my book. I also like to blue look to the amperiors, and I have noticed recently that most of the music I listen to "on the go" is more fast paced. Since the amperiors cater to that musical pace I'm heavily considering them.
So my remaining questions would be:
Hd25-1 vs Amperior- my consensus on this would be the amerpior if both were without an amp.
Is a cable upgrade as valuable as a portable amp in terms of SQ? With the hd25-1 and amperiors, I am looking this cable.
Overall I think I'd be more happy with a recabled amperior. I like the idea of aluminium cups and the blue color. If I were to get a portable amp in the future would the hd25's be better?
Many of the other headphones mentioned in this thread are still on the table. It's just I was slowly getting into less and less portable headphones.
Thank you for your help!
Upgrading cable is sort of an extra move, usually for those who are bored and want to fit their headphones with the maximum upgrades or they just hate the default cable.
As an amperior owner I wouldn't even bother with an amp, they're like 18ohms and very sensitive.
