Well at least you will save money! Not even the T1?


Haha. Like your post. But the thread title says: Rank the headphones that you OWN. So I guess his ranking would be correct. But for me the DT880 wouldn't make the list (sold them) but the T90 would be on top. If I had the T1 it would be the number one spot - but I only borrowed it from a friend for a few weeks. So don't own one (yet).


Cheers,

Both the Sony Z7s and Denon D5000s are superior in most aspects (clarity, timbre and soundstage) but the A900Xs are just the easiest to listen to and as a bonus they isolate the best.
 
1. Audio Technica ATH-A900X
2. Sony MDR-Z7
3. Denon AH-D5000
4. Roland RH-300

I take my last post back
 
 
1. LCD-2
2. HD 650
3. ATH-M50
4. XB-500
 
I was being delusional when I posted that my HD 650s were better than my LCD-2s.

Hell, probably.
ok, yeah, holy ****

1: Pioneer Monitor 10-II (modded)
2: Toshiba HR-810 (modded)
3: Sansui SS-100 (stock)
4: KOSS PortaPro

SS-100 is still being underpowered; the Gustard H10 will probably change these rankings

but holy **** the 10-II responds well to mods
