Hello,
 
I was born with mild hearing loss and I was wondering which of these would have the loudest sound output? 
 
Sennheiser 439 + Portable Amp (either fiio e10 or e11)
or
Beats Studio 
 
I plan to use the headphone for my PC and my phone (usa galaxy s3) I'm open to other suggestions as well. I would like to spend no more than $150-$160.

Heya,
 
I would put you on a CAL! or Koss DJ PRO 100, or Sony MDR7506 and then just get a JDS Labs CMOY or Fiio E7 (because it will work both as desktop/portable), and crank it up until you hear something.
 
Very best,

I used to have the Sony MDR7506 and it gets tiring to wear it after a long use. Do you know if the CAL! goes around the ear rather than pressed against the ear?
 
I really like how comfortable the Sony MDR-XB500 is, do you know an alternative to this headphone? Maybe the CAL! might be the one for me but I need you to confirm.
 
Thanks!
