    Sony MDR-V600 - Thoughts and General Info???

    Brainwavz XL do. I've been looking. And yes there are other ways, but I think I need need an external DAC, so I'm going back to the previously mentioned FiiO E18. Has a bass boost feature, so I'm not too worried. I do like a good soundstage though, so I think this is what I want. Or, the...

    Sony MDR-V600 - Thoughts and General Info???

    Good points. I'm still discovering my sound preferences, but I was mainly looking for the clarity, soundstage, and general sound improvements. I went from almost not wanting them to appreciated the vastly different sound from all other headphones I've used. I still have to learn what I actually...

    Sony MDR-V600 - Thoughts and General Info???

    Yeah... not going to pretend that I'm not super disappointed. I was out of town, and he agreed to put it on hold and everything... To add to my frustration, earlier he said he'd sell the E18 for just $50. Now he's saying $75. Mostly hip hop and rap, so the sound signature would be great...

    Sony MDR-V600 - Thoughts and General Info???

    Well, price time. Had found everything I ever wanted earlier on Craigslist. HD 650 and originally $275 FiiO E18 Kunlan Portable DAC AMP Combo for $130! Until, after the deal was completely worked out and confirmed, the seller's main pair of headphones broke and they needed the HD 650 as backup...

    Sony MDR-V600 - Thoughts and General Info???

    Yeah, I saw the V6 and V7506 results pop up too. I think I'll skip it. Here are some other options. Leaving out prices. Same question for you, have you used Sennheiser's Momentum 2.0, HD 650, or HD 598?

    Sony MDR-V600 - Thoughts and General Info???

    Thanks for the reply! That sounds like a smart idea... I did see some of the negative reviews, but that's factoring in price. If they're 2 star headphones at $900, then I'd say 4.5 star at $40. Anyway, I can make a new post for this topic, but have you used Sennheiser's Momentum 2.0, HD 650, or...

    Bump. These headphones are on Craigslist, would like to get back to the seller soon.

    Sony MDR-V600 - Thoughts and General Info???

    Hi! So these headphones popped up on Craigslist for $40. Online it looks like they go for $895 (Amazon, CNET), but eBay has them used for $60 and lots of Newegg and audioreview reviewers say they got them for $100. They must be the least documented headphones ever, I can't seem to find a single...

    Portable-ish DAC Under $50? Under $30 Preferred

    Heard so much good about the HD-6XX, but this is definetly what I need. Should've also mentioned that I plan to use the DAC to power my portable Samson Z35 and I got the price down to $120. Going to take my current Samson Z35 with me to test with the DAC, and see if this is really what I want. I...

    Portable-ish DAC Under $50? Under $30 Preferred

    Ok, I'm a little worried. Need some more suggestions. So the FiiO E18 Kunlun, which the DAC being sold, has a recommended impedance of 150 ohms according to FiiO. HD650 have an impedance of 300 ohms. Saw this post here (https://www.massdrop.com/buy/fiio-e18/talk/25797) of people saying this...

    Portable-ish DAC Under $50? Under $30 Preferred

    Yeah, I think I'm going with the HD650s... Also, the ATH-700ADX are marketed as "air" headphones, but it turns out the HD650s weigh less anyway haha.

    Portable-ish DAC Under $50? Under $30 Preferred

    So true... I'm starting to really REALLY like the idea of portable (current headphones are foldable), closed-back and stay-at-home, open-back cans. No leaking music on the bus, but hi-fi sounds at home. I think I might do it... Going to see if I can get him to drop to $100-$120 first. Not going...

    Portable-ish DAC Under $50? Under $30 Preferred

    Letgo actually. Ugh I don't know that's one heck of a deal though... I just got $150 pocket cash a couple weeks ago actually. I really want it but I don't know. It'll probably last me a while though... UPDATE: Said he'll sell the Kunlan for $50. Countered with $30, we'll see how this goes. Not...

    Portable-ish DAC Under $50? Under $30 Preferred

    Ok woah... Sennheiser HD650 + FiiO Kunlun for $150... I mean that's really worth it, and I could shell out the cash if I really wanted it... Have experience with either of those?
