Seeking help for choosing headphones + USB audio interface around 500$

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for a decent headphones(not sure if I can say audiophile in this price range).

Main usage: music production at late night when everybody is asleep ;)

Obviously flat response and accuracy is important, I listen to PsyTrance so I except the lows to be perfect(highs are also important but less).

I've seen so many positive reviews about the HD600/HD650, how much difference they have?

heard that the Q701 are also impressive but has a less deep bass.

 

My style:

 

 

I've found this Ebay sale: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Brand-new-Sennheiser-HD650-On-Ear-Home-Cinema-HiFi-Headphones-/111328969315?pt=US_Headphones&hash=item19ebb94263

 

Is it just me or that seems a bit suspicious because of the relatively low price? It's also from HK(although this seller have many positive feedback about this product)

 

Audio Interface

 

I don't need more then 2 inputs and 2 outputs, I more concerned about audio quality, so the Focusrite 2i2 seems to be a good choice(maybe a bit pricey?)

 

Overall budget: 450$ - 550$

Used audio interface is an option for me,  even used headphones as long they are still under warranty.

 

Thanks in advance :)

If you like bass, also look into the HE-400s. See this review: http://www.head-fi.org/t/634201/battle-of-the-flagships-58-headphones-compared-update-audeze-lcd-2-revision-2-6-4-13#user_HE400

The HD600 and HD650 are also described there as well.

The Schiit Modi and Magni are one of the most highly recommended DAC/amp combos. Focusrite is more popular among pro audio types who need the features it offers.

read the review, sounds really goods, just that there is no an official importer of Hifiman in my country :(

I can still order them from Ebay but in case of an issue I'll be have  to ship it aboard =\

are there any more suggestions?

 

thanks.
