    Which IEM (under 500$) has best possible noise isolation?

    In addition to listening at home, I also used to listen to music while travelling in public transport. Most of our buses (Indian made) have very noisy engines and also often they play some unpleasant noisy local 'music(?)'. I am using Sennheiser CX 5.00 at present which does a good job in noise...

    Driving AKG K702 vs Sennheiser HD 598

    So the main determinant of need for amping is the sensitivity. Isn't it? Not the impedance.

    Driving AKG K702 vs Sennheiser HD 598

But considering the fact that Little Dot 1+ is not a pure class A amp (only the tube stage is class A) I would...

    Thanks all for your valued opinions. I thought about HD 600 as well but when I saw many reviews saying that HD 600 has very narrow sound stage, I put it aside for a while. Wide soundstage is something I really enjoy. And is that HD 600 still being produced? Many online retailers don't have them...

    Upgrading(?) from Sennheiser HD 598 to HD 650.

    At present I am using my HD 598 together with Schiit Modi 2 as DAC and Little Dot 1+ (with Mullard M8161 tube upgrade) as amp. I enjoy the combination very much. I mostly listen to classical music (specially from classical and baroque periods) and on occasions I also listen to oldies (such as...
