Hi. I have a Ray Samuels amp shipping to me. I want a headphone that is known to compliment it well. I don't want in ear headphones. Excepting those, what can you recommend that will go well with the HR-2, like red wine and beef?

Anything.

Though you might just try the better regarded cans out there, so the HD650 and the HF1.

"I want a headphone that is known to compliment it well"

I thought it was the other way around.

You probably shoulda chose the phone first. Still, RS amps tend to work well w/ almost anything it seems. No promises though.

I don't know how I could judge any phones without an amp. To me, the amp is the foundation of any pure headphone system: without it, you can't judge the phones, and to a lesser degree, enjoy the source.

But let's say that those that had phones first, decided that the HR-2 was the best compliment to those phones. What phones did those people have!

I like both the Grado SR-60 and Ultimate Ears Ue-10 PRO with my Ray Samuels Emmeline HR-2. I tend to think that this headphone amplifier will make most headphones sound damn good.
