Hi, im new here. A few months back i looked around this forum to find of new headphones to get. I decided on the Sony MDR-XB700's. They were even on clearance at my local computer store for 89$ (canada). I picked up a Fiio E10 amp/Dac to go with it. I absolutely loved these headphones. I use a HD439 for most music and just general gaming on my computer. But when I go to listen to electronic remix dance brassy songs, I went to my xb700's. Well! turns out i accidentally tossed them into the garbage along with my taco bell one night, and they are long gone by now. Looking online I found that the price of these things basically doubled, i cant find any less then 160$. I come here asking if I should just bight the bullet and pay this for another pair, or if there is a better pair of headphones I can get for the same/lower price? What i really loved about the XB700's was the POWER that i felt from them. I loved to blast the volume, and feel my head just vibrate. I need somthing that can match that power, or better yet beat it. TLR = Have a Fiio amp. Used to have XB700's. they gone now. price doubled, wondering if something better to get for that price. Oh, and I only use them while on my PC. I dont have a equalizer and dont really plan on getting a physical one. If there is a computer software that can equalize the digital audio, would love to know.
