Hi,
I need a good sealed headphone. I'm looking at the senn hd25 and the AKG 271 ST. I need em' to work unamped (Source notebook & Pc). I have a hd595. Like the sound of it, searching for something similar, but with sealed design.
which one would you choose?

i don't know about the AKG, but the HD 25-1's have a more exaggerated sound than the 595's and a much smaller soundstage. i enjoy both, even though the 595's provide a lot more refinement.

The K81DJ can be power-hungry and works better with an amp (it'll drain any portable devices you have faster than other headphones). As long as your source is AC-powered though, it should be fine.

You might also consider the Audio Technica ATH-FC7, Sony MDR-V6, or Sennheiser HD 280.

I'm burning in the k81 dj. I'm happy with theese phones. I'm curious how the sound will change after 100+ hours of music.
Thanx for your posts!
