All right - I got that itch again.

I will spend some money to taste a different headphone but the question is which one?

Source'll be iriver h120
Amp'll be mf x-can v2 (heavily modded)

Phone'll be ??? (should be closed but not iem)

Currently i have beyer dt831's (without a 120ohm adaptor) and I am inclined to get a senn 595.

I generally listen indie, rock, jazz and have a special interest in female vocals.

I think 770/80 would be another choice but I really want to hear a different brand.

If you can give some suggestions for above source / amp combo, it will be greatly appreciated.

cheers!

If you really want to go for something else you might want to try a Ultrasone, for example, the Proline 750..
They seem to have different experience and soundstage then other brands.
But that's just an advice from a lover from the ultrasones but may be an option. They will do very fine out of your x-can! And they are definately closed ones...

try something completely different like the stax sr001 or an ultrasone. pretty expensive though...

i had a sr80 for couple of months and I enjoyed its rich sound however I am in need of a closed can + the comfort level of grados are not up to my expectations (basically my ears hurt even after 30 minutes). I will buy a hf1 in the future but for now I am looking for something more comfy and closed.

ultrasone proline 750 sounds intriguing. I will look into them.

So far we have 595 and 750 on the table, any more bids

the pl 750's are going to raise your standard of listening, i swear. cannot believe the sound for 250 bucks (at northen light and sound). just crasy!!!

the preceeding was not a paid endorsement...even though it reads like a f***in ad.
