    Finally ordered my first real pair of cans!

    I have the money for some ridiculous amp (graduation funds), but I gave myself a $250 budget to save for college... The Vali sounds enticing, but I don't want to spend that kind of cash atm... I have no real reference, but my setup right now is very pleasing to my ears. I will definitely look...

    Finally ordered my first real pair of cans!

    I feel like if there were any less force, they wouldn't feel secure on my head. The slight rigidity just makes them feel like a solid pair of headphones an does not cause any discomfort imo.

    Finally ordered my first real pair of cans!

    I am so pleased with how comfortable these things are. Headphones have never really fit me well; these seem as if they were crafted for me personally. I have yet to break them in, but with my little tube amp and spotify, I'm really enjoying what I hear. The sound seems smooth, yet precise. Just...

    HD 598 vs DT990 w/fiio e11

    I will mainly be using my pc. It was built a few months ago and has the newest realtek audio (though I know it's NOT auidiophile quality)   I am now leaning toward the 990s with the Bravo v2 tube amp. If I need a DAC later I can get one, and I can swap tubes to adjust sound.   What do you...

    HD 598 vs DT990 w/fiio e11

    I know quite a bit about each of these phones and the sound signatures they produce, but which do you guys think will produce higher overall quality sound? The un-amped 598s or the amped dt 990s? They both come out to be ~200

    Stuck between hd598 and hp200

    I was just about to order the dt 990s with the bravo tube amp, a higher quality tube, and the fiio e3 DAC... This is $250, but you may be right in saying I'd just be better off with the 598s alone...

    Stuck between hd598 and hp200

    Thanks for the input. I would definitely choose the 598s over the 558s because they're in my budget and don't require a driver ( if I had a driver I would have ordered some dt880s or q701s days ago)... I just feel as if the 558s are just playing it safe; the look and reviews makes me feel like...

    AKG Q 701 vs AudioTechnica AD900x

    Both will be within my budget, but I only have a fiio e06 driver and don't plan on getting another. Are either pair outdated or less reputable? Thanks!

    Which open-ear cans should I purchase? (new to head-fi)

    The 60 dollar price tag was discerning, but it seems that they are praised by many enthusiasts because of the price/performance ratio. How much better would the AD990xs be in comparison? (Factoring in build quality, comfort, and sound quality- which I understand is an amorphous subject)

    Also, do you think that the 700x's would still provide adequate quality and a significant step up from my old cans?

    Which open-ear cans should I purchase? (new to head-fi)

    That is where i was leaning. I believe that many of the mentioned negative aspects were improved with the "x" version, and I am happy to see that the professionals (per say) believe they are an A+ when it comes to price vs. quality!

    Which open-ear cans should I purchase? (new to head-fi)

    I didn't realize how much that amp was actually... I may be better off sticking with a sub 50ohm pair

    Which open-ear cans should I purchase? (new to head-fi)

    Those may be slightly superior and fit my criteria like a glove, but unfortunately i'd like to spend a but less than that. Also, I prefer a more minimalist design... Would the dt990s with an e10 be able to compete with the sennheisers? (Overall sound quality)

    Which open-ear cans should I purchase? (new to head-fi)

    I want something that is distinguished but relaxing; it's hard to describe without proper terminology... I basically am looking for clear mid/treb and controlled bass. My musical palate will be ever changing so I can't pinpoint a certain genre. I am also very interested in the broad and diverse...

    Will my amp power these the Beyerdynamic DT990s?

    I have the fiio e06 amp, and am looking to purchase the DT990 pros by Beyerdynamic (250 ohms). With this amp plugged into my iphone or pc, will there be enough drive to use these cans at full potential? Or should I consider some with less power; the Audio technica  ad990xs for example? Thanks in...

    I'm upgrading from base level pair of Audio Technicas,   http://www.amazon.com/AUDIO-TECHNICA-Stereo-Headphone-ATH-PRO5MS/dp/B00094NNA6/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top   and am stuck between two great pair of cans; the Audio Technica ad900x  and the Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro250. Both have excellent...
