Hi all, I am just starting out on higher end headphones.
Right now, I am finding an open back full size headphone in the price range of HD600.
At first, I just wanna get the HD600, but after awhile, I found out that there are more to be looked upon in the audiophile world, such as the Philips Fidelio X1, I think it will fit me more than the HD600, unfortunately it is not available in my country somewhere in South Asia (Oh well) and I am not going for international shipping. What really interests me on the X1 descriptions by fellow Head Fiers is the soundstage and the bass, these are to me the most important aspects of ideal sound to me. I listen to wide variety of genre, I am that kind of guy who don't just listen to music based on genre but I mostly enjoy Pop, R&B, Acoustic, Soul, Funk, Jazzy Hip Hop like Nujabes. This clearly shows how X1 fits me the most, but sadly it is out of the picture now, so I just wanna know can I enjoy the HD600? Do the soundstage and the bass of HD600 can satisfy me? How the soundstage of HD600 feels like? Does it have the out of the head imaging that I am easily impressed to?
Also do recommend other headphone that fits me other than the X1, I am also considering the HD598.
For reference, currently I have an Aune T1 Mk2 tube DAC (stock tubeEH6922) and ATH EP700 open back on ear headphone.
