The problem with looking for forum opinions on which of those headphones is best for those genres of music, is that it is all subjective.
The Magni is an amp:

I find this poll really interesting. For some reason I was under the impression that the T1 was not as highly regarded by head-fiers as the other...
I haven't tried the HD650, but by all accounts it's supposed to be warmer than the DT880. I enjoy the sound of the DT880 with the DAC1...
Nice review. I find it surprising that you had issues with the sound of the DAC1 past 3 o'clock on the volume. Actually I'm most surprised that...
Yep, at $800 for the full setup it might be more appropriate in this section than High-End.
For a review that discusses the build quality of King Sound Speakers, you can check out this one from Dagogo for the King III:
There is a thread on the Kingsound headphones in the HighEnd forum:
1) Beyerdynamic DT880 600 ohm

The even funnier part is that the first time I wrote about using a DAC1/K701 combo on head-fi, I expected to hear a response like your...
Does your work involve reviewing headphones??? Otherwise, I can't imagine bringing "multiple" headphones to work. [img]
lol. That's why I sometimes have to laugh when people get into arguments about how an item sounds and what is over-rated etc... We all...
I think the only consensus is that they aren't dark/veiled. Seriously though, I think all headphones experience similar debates over...
I just got my DT880 - 600 OHM this morning. Very impressed so far. It sounds like how I expected; combined with my Benchmark DAC1 - neutral and...
I'm considering upgrading from my AKG K701s and am torn between the Audeze LCD2 Rev 2 and HiFiMan HE-500. I'm interested in any comparisons of the...
I've been using the Benchmark DAC1 as DAC/Amp with my K701s for about 3 years now. So I can certainly recommend that combo.
