Addition to Grado SR80?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

a couple of years ago I bought a pair of used SR80s (as recommended here on the forums) and really enjoyed them in combination with the headphone output of my speaker amplifier - but I had to stop using it because of space problems.
Now I own a proper headphone amplifier and DAC and started to use them again - i still like them a lot!

What I am looking for is a pair of headphones with a bit more bass for electronic music, maybe a little bit softer highs. But they should still reproduce the music as accurate as possible!
What I found so far are the Sennheiser HD650, the Beyer DT770 and the AKG K701! They also define my price range - about 300€ (~400USD) maximum.


Best whishes,

Max

As direct (and in my opinion better) alternatives to those three, also take a look at:

 

Sennheisr HD600

Beyer DT880

AKG K612 Pro

Strong recommendation for the HD 650's. I haven't owned them for very long but I am REALLY loving them, and super impressed w/ their audio. As of now I think they are my favorites out of everything I own.

Hello!

 

@sinnottj: Thanks, I'll have a look at the AKG K612 Pros as they look pretty good to me!

 

@thievesarmy: What other headphones do you have? I'd be glad if you could let me know over which phones you prefer them :)

 

 

Best regards,

 

Max
