Can anyone recommend a good pair of comfortable headphones, (Not IEM's!), that would be easily powered by my New Fiio X5!

At the moment I am looking at AKG K701's but concerned that the Fiio X5 would not power them well. I don't want to use another amp. Maybe the Sennheiser Momentum or 550 may be worth considering, although the ££ is a bit steep. Really like the look of Audio-Technica ATH-M50XBL- perhaps they would be an option? I am in UK & don't really want to go over £200. Any suggestions would be most welcome. Thanks!

Fostex T50RP. You can mod them quickly and easily to sound amazing and they're super cheap. Give them a little paint job and you're stylin' on the go with some great sounding cans.

Thanks, but I decided to try the Sennheiser Momentum's (On ear). I'll let you know what I think when they arrive! :happy_face1:
