Need a headphone recommendation

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello all, first post here.

 

Have read lots of reviews on Head Fi but can't make up my mind about which pair of headphones to get. 

 

I'm looking for a pair of over-the-ears in the price range between $300 and $800, but they'd have to be pretty amazing for me to consider something close to $800.

 

I currently own: 

 

Audio ATH-M50

Beyerdynamic Custom One Pros

Bose QC15

Sennheiser PXC 310 BT

Beats Pro Detox Ed. (I know, I know...)

Klipsch S4i

Martin Logan Mikros 70

Bowers and Wilkins C5

Bose MIE2i

Logitech UE900

 

So. I want something like the Logitech UE900 equivalent of over-the-ears.

 

I'm expecting to use these with an amplifier, I currently have the Fiio E07K and I will probably get the E09K in the near future. 

 

I listen to mostly R&B and other bass heavy music, so I want something more bass heavy but also good for vocals. 

 

I currently mostly use the Custom One Pros. 

 

also I have a massive head lol.

 

thanks in advance.

I'm assuming you mean FiiO E09K, not D09K.

Did the headphones need to be while traveling or just home/office use.

 

My best headphone, that would easy work plugged into a E07K, is the Audio Technica ATH-W1000X.

As the ATH-W1000X is only 40-Ohms, there would be no reason to get the E09K.

 

The bid for this ATH-W1000X on eBay, is currently at $300.

not likely to use this at home a lot as I would be using speakers. 

 

does the 1000x come with a 3 meter cable? is that replaceable?

 

and yes, the E09k

The ATH-W1000X does come with about a 3 meter cable, but I myself would never use them for traveling.

To much of a chance of them getting stolen or damged.

I travel with my $70 HA-S680s

 

The Schiit Magni headphone amplifier might be a better choice, over the E09K, as the Magni comes with a much lower (>1-Ohm) impedance :)

Better for 16-Ohm headphones like the COPS.
