So I have a weird little story/experience I wanted to post about. I seem to be a broken audiophile. Now let me explain. Open headphones. They're king, right? So much snobbery around them, it seems. You always read "These are good for a closed headphone" or "They're closed, they can't compete" and other things like that. Well, I either don't hear what's good about open cans, or I don't hear what's bad about closed cans. Twice now I've had a preference of a closed can over a more expensive open can. I have a pair of Audio Technica M40X, and also a pair of Sennheiser HD 598. After listening to them both quite a bit, I can say I like the M40X better. And now, I have the Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro, and the Hifiman HE 400i. And planar sounds good, don't get me wrong. Clear as crystal. But for some reason, unknown to me, I prefer the closed back dynamic Beyers over the open planar majesty of the hifiman. Something about the studio headphone sound, the more around your ears soundstage, the upfront presentation. And they sound smoother, less sharp than the HiFiman. More relaxing. Closed headphones are just more appealing to me. And I feel a little broken, seeing as how I only read about closed cans having negatives in comparison to open cans. Honestly, I'm thinking about returning the HiFiman and just getting a tube amp for my Beyers instead. Or maybe another closed headphone. Does anyone else like closed cans more? Or am I just that weird?
